Derby Fury

Red Bubble shirt design by Melissa Gaggiano.

    I love roller derby, though I would never have the guts to get out onto the rink, to get down down and dirty with the ladies. I'd be too afraid of losing a tooth or breaking a leg. So I get my derby kicks from watching Whip It and drawing derby.
    I now have available at Red Bubble my own roller derby inspired shirt design. Check it out here.

This is me

    This is me! Well... not really. But wouldn't it be nice ride a bicycle, wearing a tutu and high heel shoes. I wonder, what nice things are in the rear basket.

Energised Fashion

    The past couple of days my brain has switched on and I have had an upswing of creative ideas pouring out of my head. Including some crazy beautiful candy coloured fashion ideas.
    I've got that energised bubbly feeling tonight. Like I could do anything. Got to bottle that feeling. I think it started with some pom-pom making.

Fashion Bits

    The past few years I have come to have an appreciation for stuff that is crocheted. I've even tried my hand at it and made a few things. This morning I was in a doodling mood and I came up with this dress idea. Totally made of crochet flowers. Even the boots are covered in crochet.

    As you can no doubt tell, I was inspired by an origami favourite - the paper crane.

Playin' with Lego

Image creation by Melissa Gaggiano.

    Lately the girls have been getting right into Lego and love having me sit with them, helping them build stuff - homes, cars, animals, you name it. And it's got to be said, I have really enjoyed sitting on the ground with the girls and getting those creative, constructive juices flowing.

    And so, I have set up a new blog, dedicated to Lego play. The new blog will showcase  the Lego creations of the people in my family. Check it out at -
