This is Henry. He's a rather shy little boy that likes dressing up as a bat. Quite a convincing costume don't you think?

Ha Noi, Vietnam.
It's one of the craziest, most colourful, vibrant and friendly place I have ever visited. I would highly recommend it and I really want to go back. Crossing the roads is quite a challange....I got laughed at by a police man when I was waiting for a safe place to spot. You know, just following the green cross code. He waved me along and said, 'Just go.'
I then realised you have to simply walk out into the oncoming sea of mopeds and they weave around you. If you stop though, you're in trouble.
The people here work every given hour, stopping only to eat. They bring out tiny plastic tables and chairs onto the streets and eat together, cooking on what ever they can. You can't walk a few metres without someone offering you some rice or a beer. It gave me a nice feeling.

Painting is relaxing for me.
I'm thinking about developing these into larger paintings. It's been a long while since I've gotten all messy doing a big painting.
Once again please excuse the bad photographs. I've still not been able to download the software I need for my scanner. It's frustrating!
On the up-side I'm just waiting on lots of cards and prints of my drawings and paintings to be printed....so watch this space.
I visited Amsterdam last year. These are some photographs I took.
I liked it there a lot. I would like to see more of Holland.
I would also like to live on a house boat there for a wee bit. Preferably one with a little garden.
The buildings look like they're leaning up against each other, like someone has hammered a couple of extra ones in, squashing them all together. I went on a boat tour. I like boat tours.

I was in a really good antiques warehouse just before Christmas and I spotted this rather lovely plastic drawer and jar set. I was however, doing Christmas shopping at the time so I didn't buy it for myself........which I instantly regretted when I got home.
Lo and behold on Christmas day I unwrapped a gift from my boyfriend and there it was!
I like the flowers, they remind me of kitchen wallpaper we had when i was little. It kind of foamy and I used to get in trouble for picking at it.

One thing on my to-do-list for 2011 is to make more things for my ETSY shop, and to make better use of my time in general. I think these things go together rather well .
At the moment I'm framing some of my recent soft sculptures, which will then be for sale in m shop. I always feel a bit mean putting them in a frame....
Also, don't you think 2011 sounds really futuristic? If I was 8, I'd have imagined silver space clothes.
