I don’t really do Christmas and it’s hard to know what kind of colours will best suit all around the globe for these desktops, but I settled on a lovely turquoise, coral and canvas colour scheme for December’s desktop because it’s one of my favourites. It reminds me of the beach… hot sand, cool [...]
Coffee is the best way to get a Natalie to start the day! We had our Saturday morning all planned out, we were going to check out the new Coorparoo Markets and then move on to Finders Keepers but parking at the rejuvenated old Myer Coorparoo building AND breakfast in our tummies were [...]
November is here and I’m already planning for my 30th birthday (in December)! We should be having hot and humid sunny days but recently all we’ve had is storms so the mood for this month’s desktop is a bit thundery. I’m also continuing my fishnet obsession. It’s all I want to draw!

If I sneak in and deposit these desktops right here, no one will have any idea that they are five days late…. right?! Unfortunately, no. I know you’ve been waiting and I’m so sorry for the delay. My sister got married and I’ve been doing all manner of things but now October can officially [...]

When I came across this photo on Tumblr I loved it at once, probably because it reminds me a little of Kate’s work. Han Jin looks as though she were a faery queen, I love that pose. I might try to sketch it!

I quite like august as a word [...]
Tassels. I’m totally thinking about tassels lately. Flett Bertram’s tassel dresses (seen on Style Bubble) remind me of my Nana’s house and how she’d have these tassels hanging from the old keys stuck in the doors of her display cabinets. I actually have one of those display cabinets now, and [...]
I’ve been doing a bit of drawing and experimenting for myself in the last week, and one of the things I’ve liked doing is drawing in white gouache over a black inked background. Doodling with a paintbrush is becoming a frequent thing for me because it helps relieve a lot of hand [...]
