Was it really only two weeks ago that I shared my current knitting project? – it seems like so much longer. Even though I’ve been knitting needleless while in San Diego for a week I’ve still managed to make some fairly decent progress since then. I've completed the front and... Continue reading

It must be so scary as a one-woman business to think about upping the numbers to 2900! I think it's funny that you were worried about things not selling, I knew when I saw the first letterpress print that if I wanted a "made by Elise" product I'd have to jump on it. I wasn't surprised at all that they sold out so quickly I was just delighted that I was one of the lucky ones that got one. I bet there's a ton of people hoping that you'll re-launch the products next year - it's a great business model and I couldn't be happier for you!!

Couldn't agree more - best feeling ever
hee hee thanks Sarah!
Thanks Kathy those are the ones I'm most proud of!
Oh yea I really enjoyed Park Avenue - thanks for the rec!
I know what you mean - I would have happily headed off to SeaWorld without ever thinking about the whales themselves just because I would love to see and Orca. But no way would I go now. I'll check out Man on Wire this weekend thanks :)
Those are fun nicknames - my friends tried to call me Marty for a while but my Dad's name is Martin and that's his nickname so it never stuck.

I;m so glad I planned the zoo trip in advance because it really was the only moments of the trip to San Diego that I managed to stop and get any downtime in at all during the week - crazy!

I know that always gives me a giggle - I refer to you as Australian Kathy :)

I’m back! After a whirlwind few days in San Diego from which I needed the entire weekend (and then some) to recover from, I’m finally back catching up on my favourite blogs and of course updating my own with the hundreds of photos I took in San Diego. Although in... Continue reading

I was trying to decide the best place to hang the 3 new prints I recently purchases (I’ll share them next week once they’re in frames and hung) when I realised that somehow over the last year I’ve managed to accumulate a pretty substantial number of DIY painting and pictures.... Continue reading

Anyone who’s read this blog for even a short time will know that I quite enjoy binge watching TV-shows on Netflix but every so often I get really hung on watching documentaries. Netflix has a surprising number of really good, thought provoking documentaries and I thought I’d share with you... Continue reading

Wow, thank you Claudz for the Sunshine Award! I’ve been following Claudz’s blog for a long time and I get incredibly jealous of her beautiful photos of life in Johannesburg and of the safari trip she went on – that’s a big bucket list item of mine but until I... Continue reading

It’s been a busy few weeks and the next few weeks look set to be just as busy again. I’ve barely gotten my suitcases unpacked from one trip before I have to repack them for a second trip – this time off to sunny San Diego for a work conference.... Continue reading

Yea thanks what I was thinking - long enough that it takes significant effort for training but not so long that I get fed up of running all the time.! Martina

It’s been over 3 weeks now since I ran the half-marathon and since then I’ve run a grand total of 3 miles on one occasion. Yep, that’s right I’ve only been running once since the race. I knew that I wanted to take a little break after the race to... Continue reading

Ha ha me either it's one of those words I've never heard out loud before so I wouldn't even attempt to pronounce it! Heck I can't even spell it without double checking :)
I was thinking of trying it with shorter pieces of yarn but then I was worried about having a million yarn tails to weave in at the end - which is my least favourite part! But if it saves on detangling time then it would be worth it! Martina
Oh thank you Andrea - I can't wait either! Martina :)
Wow 27 years that is so impressive! I can only imagine the amount of wonderful things you've made in that time! Martina :)
That's true it gives me a lot to look forward to for next year :)
It's super green! I actually kinda forgot just how green it really is. In fairness though it's green because it rains a lot! It rained everyday I was there :)
Postcards would be a fun idea - I didn't even think of that because I bet he would get a kick out of collecting them too! Thanks Kathy that's what I'm going to do :)
