Another week, another flurry of faux fur, safety eyes and stringy bits! It’s also been a week filled with funerals, christenings, school holiday p.j mornings, yoga fails, generous servings chocolate (spy-style in my pantry hideout so I don’t have to share), wine, chocolate, whiskey, friends…. did I mention chocolate? This week I wanted to show you just what comes with your […]

“Gotta make a move to a town that’s right for me. Town to keep me moving’ Keep me groovin’ with some energy….” I hummed this as I pondered this piece from a 4 year old who’s use of lines and squiggles created this funky little character.
