Fill in the Blank Friday

Well, it's been too long since I filled in the blanks so here there are! Happy Friday :)

1. The best thing I did all week was make Mr Peck delicious cupcakes and baked brie filled damper to enjoy in a little fortress for our 2 year anniversary!

2. This amazingly beautiful and hot weather make me super happy. 

3. Pets are so fun! I want one of every kind please!

4. Mr Peck is the best thing about my life. 

5. With the cooler [warmer here!] weather I am looking forward to spending more time outside and being able to wear shorts, and not have to find a cardigan/jacket that matches my outfit. Plus I can finally wear the summer clothes I bought while in USA!

6. Something that's on my "wish list" right now is a rug for our lounge room... and bookshelves all over the house.

7. This weekend I am going to knit.... and knit some more!

Exhibition project.

Yesterday was Mr Peck & my 2 year anniversary!

And in other news, I did get a request for a post on my art project so I'm going to share what I'm doing for my end of year exhibition.

It's still in very early stages yet, but essentially what I'm doing is making a knitted environment. The idea behind it is escaping from reality into a soft, almost womb like structure. So far I have built the structure and started knitting bits and pieces... below are some pictures and sketches for you to have a look at.

I bought myself an I-cord machine and am waiting and waiting for it to arrive because as you first enter (through the hole, which will be strung with elastic so you have to squeeze through it) there will be heaps of i-cord hung from the ceiling and you will have to make your way through it, pushing it aside as you go. 

After you get through that, you will come to an open space filled with... I'm not sure yet.. You'll have to stay tuned! Any ideas?

Seeing as the exhibition will be during summer, I am planning to have a small fan going which will create some air and movement. I am also planning on having some interesting lighting and some soft sounds.

I'l keep you updated as I make progress!

Look at Me

Haven't been around for a while... mainly because I have been feeling lazy.. and partly because I have been doing other things, like college work!

Here's what I wore the other day... 

And here's what I've been slowly working on... I might do a separate post to show you what it means, if you're interested? Are you? It's for my exhibition at the end of the year.... but really it's only about 2 months away now. Oh, and I made those knitting needles :)

How to Make ... Washi Tape!

Are you like me and just can't bring yourself to spend a lot of money on things that even though they are really pretty, will probably just sit there for ages without use? 

I've always loved the look of washi tape but find it so expensive and hard to justify. So, I decided to get creative and make my own.. 

All you need is some double sided tape and tissue paper! Too easy!

familiar. captured.

I didn't want to include any words... but I am a girl who likes to talk, so that is a difficult task for me! We had a weekend away for mum's birthday. I love my family very much.
