A time line.

The top picture is the sun-dappled walk Nuwan and I took after our Run for the Kids marathon. After a shower and some breakfast, we were at the North Melbourne Markets with the gang. I think I was too pooped to really ooh and aah over the goodies on sale, but I love more market experience.

I am hoodie-obsessed at the moment, and I bought myself a furry white hoodie with ears on Monday. I love that picture of Seb turned to the tram window, with my creepy reflection in the glass.

Nick made a ridiculously amazing Easter dinner yesterday, with crab, ratatouille, coq au vin, and caramelized brussel sprouts. That man knows how to cook, and throw a good party.

And that leads us to this morning, where grey skies threaten, and tiny water droplets decorate everything. A warming coffee does wonders for the heart. Work got me a birthday cake today, and I was mega surprised, as well as deeply touched.

All is peaceful.

I have been drawing more lately. It feels great to put ink to paper, and I am pleased at the progress. Here are some pictures of my coffee this morning, and the tags I made for Porcelain Womb’s craft market this Saturday. Evelyn Hotel, 2nd April, 11 am – 4 pm, 351 Brunswick Street. Come and say hi!

So on Friday, I finally got my macro/wide-angle iPhone lens from Photojojo! I was having breakfast out when it arrived. I was so excited, I had to go home immediately to get it. It also helped that I wanted to give Nuwan his as well, as I got him one as a surprise. Now Seb (who also ordered one), Nuwan and I can take mighty pictures of everything! The macro lens blew my mind, it picked up on things I couldn’t even see with my own eye. Got a post on that coming up.

The weekend has been so full. I went to Finders Keepers on Sunday, and it was a bit disappointing. There was way too much repeat stuff from the last market for it to be good for me. Maybe Saturday might have been a better day to go? Still, there were some lovely things, especially for winter – woolly scarves and capes, angora gloves, and knitting kits. It always fun to look at oceans of lovingly made things, and pretty table displays, but yeah. Might do Camberwell Market next weekend to get the market itch out of my system.

Anywayyy that’s it for now. The past few days, I’m happy that I got to bond with friends, cook, help my boyfriend move and take 300 pictures with a tiny camera lens (AAAAHHH LITTLE MAGNETIC MACRO LENS). Things are smooth.

(need to draw more now)

It’s just been so full on lately. I know I’ve been DOING things, important things, things my dreams are made of. Still, sometimes I don’t know where the time goes.

Met up with the lovely Katherine on Saturday, and she got me some gorgeous stationery. I love the drawings with speech bubbles, I get to put quotes in them. The first one is one I heard from Katherine herself: ‘How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time.’ She just started a blog too, where she shares some crafty awesomeness.

Speaking of crafting, Porcelain Womb will be at the State Library next Saturday, as part of the Craft Hatch markets. 10 am – 4 pm, at Experimedia. I’ll be selling beautifully cut glass crystal pendants, that throw off hundreds of little rainbows everywhere. Can’t wait, do say hi!
