I have some exciting news! I am having a solo exhibition (my first!) in Bendigo, here.
I am so excited about it, and have been working feverishly getting things done for it. It was kind of late notice, it starts on the 1st May! So I have gone underground in an effort to get out lots of paintings and necklaces for it.
My husband luke and I are combining the exhibition with a big road trip down south to Bendigo so I can deliver everything in person and have a break. I am so excited!
So I am spending time away from the computer lately to try and get things done, but I am going to keep the blog updated with photos of pieces and ideas to try and get some extra feedback before heading down!

I finally got my very own website! I had wanted one for so long but couldn't really justify it when I had etsy, but I decided the other week that I am just going to do it. So I workhttp://www.blogger.com/img/gl.photo.gifed really hard on the design, and my husband (pictured) worked really hard on the coding side of things, and I love the result!
Check it out at www.almab.com.au and let me know what you think! It is still a bit rough, particularly the gallery section, but it will be cleaned up soon.
I intended to be doing a market review in this spot but after planning to go to my favorite markets at Eumundi, it was a miserable weekend with rain, so I will try and do something next week.

It's been busy busy round here lately - I am stocking up on supplies to make a whole heap of new necklaces, so look out in the shop for them, plus I have got some brand new products I'm developing which I am excited about. Above are some pictures of the beginnings of some new necklaces.
Once I get all the products on the go that I want to develop, I am going to open a stall at a market - so I have been researching which market would be best for me. I love going to the markets, so I am loving the research! :-)
The thought of setting up a stall is quite scary for me, but I think it's something I have to try. I will keep posting about my findings on all the markets in Brisbane.
It has been so hot here lately, and I am starting to really crave some colder weather. I created this little canvas about my thoughts - it's called "Dreaming of Colder Weather" and it will be up in the shop as an original this week.

I have been psyching myself up for applying to Trunkt for weeks now, a bit afraid of the possible rejection - I had heard on Etsy it was a pretty tight selection process.
Trunkt is a curated website of art and design, and a place where professionals can check out emerging artists and designers, so I was really wanting to get my work on there.
I finally applied the other day, and am so excited to say I can now be found here!
The picture is a piece I completed on the weekend. It's about the feeling of coming home after a long journey. It will be available as an original in my shop soon.

My new obsession is Blythe dolls, and though this is straying from my usual style, I totally love them! I went a bit crazy with them and I now own 3, which all arrived in the last week. Hello Harvest was my first, and still my favourite, I think she's so pretty! Then came Mod Molly and Enchanted Petal, both of which are so adorable! Enchanted Petal I am planning on doing some customising work to.
More Blythe news will follow now and again.

I have been wanting to make necklaces with my art on them for ages, but it took me a while to figure out all the technicalities.
I love art pendants, because it's a way to carry around your favorite artwork all day. These ones are made from small glass pebbles, and I'm really happy with how they turned out.
I haven't put them up in the shop yet as I don't think I've perfected the photos yet, but they will be up shortly.

so it's been a while since I posted on here - there are numerous reasons why - I started a new job with way longer hours, and I got married, and I went overseas - it was a busy year in 2007!
My new years resolution was to get back into my art, etc. So here I am!
I am posting a few images from the year that has been, and I will be back soon, on track with some artsy goings on.
