Exciting times...

Hi! Great you've popped in, let me tell you what I've been up to. Firstly as you have probably already gathered I'm very new to blogging and I've had quite a time trying to get my blog looking schmiko. Finally though I am happy with the look and layout and happy to show you the initial sketch which was the start of my banner. I love working on these characters they send my head into a spin with the stories they could be part of. Lexie and I have been trying to come up with names for these girls. What do you think? Any ideas out there?


Last night we headed up to Sydney to see Vivid the laser light show. We knew it was going to be good, it was better than good just amazing. 

The Opera House a beautiful canvas.

'Archie & Laurie'

Along the esplanade from the Opera House was this gorgeous window display in a restaurant, things like this make my heart skip a beat.

'A glass of bubbly'

We got pushed along like a herd across Circular Quay, through the Rocks and made our way to Pancakes on the Rocks for dinner. The queue was very loooooooooooooooong, so Lexie took selfies.

'Me & my girls'

It was a great night out which is not something we a do a lot of as our youngest is only two. The kids were wowed by our big beautiful city and the amazing things people do. Well done Vivid it was magical.

Exciting things are happening around here at the moment. I have been getting my artwork ready for printing. Soon I will have greeting cards and prints made up for selling. Just as I was going to sit down to do some work I realised I had a seat warmer at work.


I'm very thankful too as it's nippy around here, 6 degrees this morning. So here's some of my latest artwork.

'Feeling Peckish'

'Mushroom Girl'

'Ooo I love the wrapping'


I really enjoy working with watercolours and I'm getting into painting with ink also. You can make lovely vibrant colours with ink but it's a bit pricey so I'm slowly building up my supplies, have to feed the children too! 

'Archie & Lexie'

The youngest and the eldest enjoying a wiggle dance together, awww.


Just finished washing the car, and himself, ahem.

'Ollie's new mate'

Captain America moved in this week and I don't know what it is about him, but I really think we're going to have some fun with him around the place. Here he is on the front porch checking visitors for ID.

'One of my favourites'

Well that's about it for this week. Thanks for reading and please call again soon. Emma x.
