I love the beautiful dappled coat new fawns have and how cleverly they blend into the undergrowth. Nature is amazing isn’t it. And wonderfully inspiring. Especially when you have a Gocco machine that is hungry for more.
Truth be known my Sleepy Fawn isn’t all that new. You might remember this work-in-progress post. But all finished I figured he might be new to you. And he has an important job to help me point out something else – My shiny new online portfolio which is now sitting happily in the sliding menu. It’s where you can see all four curled up critters in my Sleepy series. I can’t tell you what a relief it is to finally get that folio online. Lets just say it’s been a long wait. Getting things done, now that calls for a celebration.
That is after I wake everyone up.

A gorgeous buddy, Michelle of Shelbyville recently nominated me for a Liebster award. They were new to me but Michelle says that Liebster means ‘dearest’ and the ‘award’ was created as a way to show a little love to fellow bloggers for their contribution to the blogosphere. Sounds great! It also turns out that the Liebster rules have been pretty rubbery over the years (how 3-5 questions becomes 11 is a mystery). I’ve been a bit rubbish with honouring awards in the past, I have every good intention but where does time go. However I have an idea. It’ll keep my blog nose clean and its just a tiny little tweak – a ‘Mini Liebster’ option if you will!
Step Three: I nominate these six lovely ladies. They are all incredibly creative, generous and inspirational.
These guys get things done, amazing things. And I’m itching to know a little bit more about them and how they tick.
Please visit them but be warned they have very addictive blogs.
… and their questions are:
- If you could live in any other country for a year where would you choose and why?
- Which are your top three favourite books?
- Tell us about a famous woman you admire.
- Tell us about a major moment you were brave and it paid off.
- Which period of history most interests you and why?
- Share an image from the last 12 months that took your breath away.
Phew! All done. Thanks Michelle I hope you feel as if I’ve done the Liebsters justice.
I’d so love to ask you those questions … but I know, I know … Step Five!
The rules are delightfully rubbery though don’t you think. xx
Just a quick note to say thanks to Francesca for the wonderful inspiration that I found on her blog.
She has a fun collaboration with photographer Xanthe Berkeley called Its a List Thing that turns
the humble list into a work of graphic art.

It’s funny how things go.
For instance I have my partner home again after a plodding 7 week contract in Sydney – Yay!
He’s now taking a couple of weeks off nicely coinciding with the Easter School Holidays – Perfect timing!
Right when I have a tonne of work I need to motor through – Fantastic right?!
Yeah, except my scanner chose this week to ‘give up the ghost’ – Damn!
I spent hours choosing a new one only to discover that they ‘sold the last one a few hours ago’ and ‘the supplier is out of stock’.
and I’ve caught a rubbish virus that makes me sound like an old man who smokes an entire box of cigars, hourly.
Perhaps I was supposed to be doing other things this week.
Like channeling my inner ‘nutty photographer’, munching eggs and hanging out with the little chickens …
Who am I to argue!
Happy Easter Holidays! x

Had a go at weaving with Miss L resulting in something super cool for class news and a blanket for a happy mouse.
Watched KungFu Panda with the girls and then had KungFu ‘fights’ with some truly impressive moves.
Went for a walk to the boathouse, fed the ducks and slurped ice cream on a ridiculously beautiful day in Melbourne.
Hope you had a lovely lazy weekend too! x
