I've been one of the regular designers to contribute projects to Australia's HANDMADE magazine for almost five years now.
During those years I have seen a few editors come and go, and new layout designs 'tweaked' to give the readers something really lovely to read through - never allowing the magazine to become stale or boring.
Recently Handmade said goodbye to it's editor, the lovely Victoria, who got herself hitched to the man of her dreams and headed off into the sunset to work in the family business. (how darn romantic is that!?)
Then, stepping right through Handmade's door, Elizabeth New gathered up the reins and was off and running into a new year, a fresh new magazine format, and a blog!
She's a real sweetheart, and just this week asked if I'd answer a few questions about myself and where the future is taking me. I was "happy as Larry" to do that ('cause we used to have a dog named Larry and he was always happy, especially when his 'leaping so high that he could destroy everything on the clothesline' skills were in play), so head over HERE and find out what's going on in my head and my day to day life.
I have two projects inside Handmade's April issue, so if you're in Australia or New Zealand you can pop into your local newsagent and grab a copy today. \o/
This weekend we're hunkered down inside as Cyclone Ita brings her destructive winds and rain south of her landfall. We're praying for the little coastal towns at ground zero - who expect to be wiped out.
Our town is expecting 400 mm of rain in 24 hours from late Saturday, early Sunday, and pretty wild winds.
Cyclones are a fact of life up here in the tropics, but a Category 5 is always going to take more than most others. Please pray for those towns and people affected.
