But there is something that I do want to share with you all - my notebook. Which is sadly about to retire.
I recieved this notebook from my amazingly talented friend Vany in a 13 days of Halloween swap (which we are doing again this year). Sadly the notebook is now full - well it may not have something on every single page but its just about ready to burst!
I've used it not as a craft notebook - but as a life notebook. It has craft ideas, things from exhibitions I've attended, lists, cross stitch patterns Rich has designed for me (as Vany included grid paper in the pages of the journal - because she's a clever crafty lady) and just bits and pieces of "stuff" I liked.
Here's some photos of a few of the pages in the notebook - its a rather random collection, but I love this wee book.
Above you can see a flier from an exhibition we attended at Roar! Gallery in Wellington, a list which is an intial "brain dump" of things to do in Sydney, a flier from "Roundabout" an exhibition which was at Wellington City Gallery (it was the first exhibition I went to when I returned home), a cupcake cross stitch pattern that Rich designed for me, a flier from the "Robot Museum" in Seoul (yes - they have a muesum just for robots and its AMAZING!), a sketch of what I made Rich for Valentines a couple of years ago, a flier from a Korean Art Gallery (I forget the name) that had an Robot themed exhibition (Robots are very popular in Korea!), a sketch of a vampire kitty I made for a "creepy cute" swap and finally a "brain dump" list of things to do in Tokyo. Phew! That's quite a list and its only a small selection of the contents of the notebook.
I'm now onto notebook number two and I am rather proud I managed to fill one whole notebook with my ideas in experiences, usually I just use a couple of pages and then forget all about it.
