Jumping across to Tumblr

My blog located here on blogger originally started back in 2007 when I launched my product label "Messagemark". The time has come for me to streamline things and move to a solution that integrates well with other social media sites like Facebook and Instagram.

So I have made the jump to Tumblr. Luckily, I worked out how to import a few posts from this blog so it doesnt make it's debut look totally empty!

Anyhow, that means this blog will just sit here now, until I return to read my antics again from the past 8 years!

Thanks for following, and if you want to see any current news from my design studio check out this site www.studioblog.com.au. You will find me there!

Some Serious Work...

On Friday we had another clothing shoot for Surface Art. Me the model, Denis (my other half) the photographer.
It is a jam packed day and we have been known to squeeze in up to 60 clothing changes into the one day... Whoah!
It can be hard thinking up new poses that don't look too try hard if you know what I mean. So in between a few shots to loosen up I did a few jumps. Denis, quick as a flash on his trigger captured the above pics of my crazy jumps. 
Then I decided to do some interpretive dance LOL!
I love working with Denis on these shoots. One day when we are old and grey, we will fondly think back to the days when I would model and he was the photographer!

My Gift

This is me, taken 11 years ago, I had just turned 30. I was on a crazy wild snowboarding trip in Wanaka, New Zealand and I decided to have a random photo in the snow in my bikini - like you do! (and yes it was freezing)

One month after this photo was taken I was diagnosed with an aggressive breast cancer. My whole world as I knew it changed forever.

I was just saying to someone yesterday how I was given the 'gift' of having cancer at 30. "Wow what a statement" was the response! I was on the wrong life path and this was the only way I was going to become aware - something big had to happen to stop me in my tracks. 

Cancer - an experience I am now grateful for, an experience that I am proud of and would never change, an experience that continues to link to the daily choices I make, and my core values. 

Today I celebrate 11 years of being cancer free! So here I am with my original boobies out (well sort of) for breast cancer awareness month!


PS: I was a bit hesitant to post this photo coz it is a bit out there, but it is a good representation of the crazy cat I was prior to cancer, and I'm happy to say that part of me hasn't changed! I even have a pic of me topless from this spot too! LOL! At least I have one photo of how I used to look in my natural state before I was reconfigured!!

It's Market Time...

Spring is in the air (and a touch of summer with 34 degrees here in Adelaide today) and so it is time to come out of the old Winter hibernation mode and take part in a few markets leading up to Christmas.

First up you will find me sporting my new little Messagemark mini shop display at the Goodwood Art House Marketplace Sunday 2nd November.

Yay for sunny days, gorgeous crafting friends, lovely customers and supporting local primary schools!

Support local, see you there!
