Mudgeeraba Show 2012

  SEE YOU AT THE MUDGEERABA SHOW!

I shall be displaying my minature models in the education pavillion this year. This will be the 5th time I will have displayed my models at this show. If you would like to know more abut the show then click here.

If you are passing by then please say hello. If you have any bits and bobs you would like to donate to the cause then PLEASE dropt them off to me. The show is on from the 23rd to the 24th June 2012.

At this show I shall have a few of my models on view and I will be building a new model so people can see some of my work in progress.
I shall also be advertising that my models and I are now available to come to schools and funtions. This is a new venture for me but with the success of the Silkwood School I figured other children (and adults) would like to see my models so I thought I would give it a go. I shall have a price list available so people can decide what it is they would like me to do. I can do a talk about my work or I can help everyone create their very own model.

my life and I include tiny, tiny macrame
hangers within the rooms of my
miniature models).

Other People's Blog - Scoop.it!

Because my miniature models are created out of recycled objects this blog is just up my alley. I am always trawling the net for ideas. People can be soo amazing at times.
It is a blog that deals in creating interesting artwork and home decorating objects out of re-cycled bits and bobs. I've included some photos form the site and if you would like to see more please click here.

Made out of knives, spoons etc. Amazing.

Old tea containers made into fridge magnets. Just make sure your magnet is a stong one if it has to hold the weight of pencils as well.


Old tenis and squash rackets made into mirrors.

My First Video - The Kitchen of Pebble Cottage

This is my first video and it is an experiment. I have already put it onto my facebook page. It took 1 1/2hrs to upload so it will be interesting to see how long it takes in Blogger.

The first problems I have noticed is that the video takes a long time to upload when I want to watch it on my facebook page. This could be just because I have an old computer with only 2GB's. I have asked other people if they have the same problem. Also the image and the voice are out of wack and the video starts at a different place than where I wanted it to. It starts with my eyes shut!
Anyway I'll upload it here and see how it goes.

video

Well It took 2 1/2hrs to download and I must appologise for the standard when it is enlarged to the whole screen. It has certainly degraded from the version that is on my facebook page. I will leave it here for the time being until I can have the time to sort it out as something is better than nothing. At least the voice and image are working together.

If you have any advice on how I can improve this video please leave me a comment.
