Talk to the hand


A huge thankyou for all of the lovely birthday wishes yesterday.

I had a wonderful day full of chocolate mud cake, chocolate mud cupcakes, donuts, coffee, and a little hand pampering.


Luckily, one of my girlfriends thought to bring candles and matches.... so the kiddies could sing Happy Birthday and blow out the candles for me!

....and look what I have to play with now - a Speedball Screen Printing kit - just imagine the amount of mess I can make with that!
Oh, and the stripey things are groovy legwarmers.... just in time for all of this chilly Melbourne weather.

You're giving me some serious birthday envy here! But hey, it's only 39 days till mine. So that's ok. I have seriously been coveting a screen printing kit for ages. Tell me how it goes and maybe I can put in a late b'day request :D
