We move into our new home in two weeks! Can you believe it? Two weeks! This whole process has felt like a lifetime and now that the wheels are finally in motion for us to properly move into this house, we’re still not ready. As far as all the furniture goes, we’re all set up. …

Chop and change

Our house has gone through quite a few facelifts over the years. Some good, and some bad. The worst was definitely when my mum decided to get our house painted bright orange! I have no idea what she was thinking. I think she must have seen it in some magazine somewhere and thought it was …

Paint Brush Miracle

Yesterday, I was at work when I opened the back doors of my friend’s van, only to be greeted by the strong scent of paint. Once again, I had forgotten to close the lids on my friend’s paint cans, on a forty-degree day as well! As a result, his entire van had been redecorated on …

Hero Careers

I’ve been a pencil mascot for as long as I can remember, standing outside of many Melbourne art stores, trying to lure people inside. I got into this job because I wanted to be an artist, but can’t draw to save my life. I figured dressing up as a pencil was the next best thing! …
