So I've been taking a bit of a hiatus in the country, where I grew up, to spend some time away from the city and basically try to save some cash! Little did I know I was going to stumble upon some very awesome, likeminded ladies who have been hanging out with me, and generally being all round cool dudes since I've been back. My Bestie has introduced me to her friends and I am so lucky to be able to spend time with them and get to know them through her. I feel very spoilt.
We've had an exciting April with the Triple J One Night Stand heading out west, with the likes of Ballpark Music, Seth Sentry and FLUME. I was mostly excited about Flume headlining as I had missed out on tickets to his show in Sydney and had heard good things about his upcoming visual show which would debut here in Dubbo. There was a great vibe around town and the community really got in to it, even my parents watched the broadcast on ABC2 (and turned the TV on mute as the sound from the showground was so loud at their house they could already hear it!).
You can watch the One Night Stand on ABC iview for the next month or so, but for now I thought I'd post Flume's new video for 'More Than You Thought' from Sydney creatives Toby and Pete which features the Infinity Prism that he launched in Dubs. Check it out:
My friend Matilda is having a pop-up art exhibit in Dubbo at the moment. She was kind enough to let me make some cards to sell in the gallery! I am hoping to open an ETSY very soon to sell the cards online - watch this space!
I went for a road trip to Canberra to see the Toulouse-Lautrec exhibit last week. On our way we stopped in at Canowindra, a cute little historical town in regional NSW. I took so many photos, it's such a pretty town full of nice shops and food spots!
My Best Friend got married to the most gorgeous man this February, and she kindly asked me to do some crafted paper menus, signs and bags for the big day.
It was so much fun to play around and work with her on these creative little extras for her wedding. I even got to help with the invites.
We also got guests to download The Wedding Party app which was so much fun on the day. It allows you have your own private social media feed with guests being able to post pictures, comments and 'like' other people's posts. At the end of the day they make it into a website for your guests to see - what a rad idea!
November has been a month of big changes for me. I resigned from my much loved job at the ABC in Ultimo, ALL THREE of my nephews had a birthday, and I got some cool presents from loved ones (including this ace MT tape from Japan). All in all, not too shabby!
