new things I have recently discovered

- When the hairdresser tells you your hair is very warm - that means it's majorly red in hue... in my case when I became my friend's model for her prac, having warm hair was not a good look.... apparently toner that contains matte green sorted that out! phew my hair didn't turn out fire engine red... just a subtle chocolate tint! Thanks Katey-watey, you're amazing!
- An art form that's new to me - Bead Weaving. Check out Natasha St Michael's amazing artwork.
- Kozyndan - the husband and wife design team that did the interpretation of Hokusai's Tsunami and the funky t-shirts I purchased in Melbourne. The designs are quite cheeky but I think it's great.
- Creating hand-made invitations is really time consuming. Mom asked me to make my gong gong's 90th birthday party invites... I stupidly agreed to it... it took me a week to make 50+ invites! Never again am I doing that!!! (but then again how often do you get to celebrate a person turning 90 years of age?)
- My friend Kelly has started her own jewellery store. Check this out. I'm so proud of you Kel. LYLAS!
- I heart design blogs.... they are so hot right now. ie: Design*Sponge
- The 2007 Perth Arts Festival calendar is out now... hope to be able to see Wild Cursive and the Gotan Project amongst other events.

to the new year ahead

This verse really stuck out to me during connect group tonight:

"Those who control their tongue will have a long life; opening your mouth can ruin everything" - Proverbs 13:3 (NLT)

I am a work in progress...
