Nina Simone, Feeling Good

I thought I would take the opportunity to tell you this is my favourite song.
Someones made a pretty cool animation to it I found on youtube...
Also, did you know that 'Nina' means little one?

The September Issue

On the front of The September Issue dvd Cosmo is quoted
'If you love fashion you'll love this'
I don't think they could be further from the truth... if you love fashion, especially in an art form, you'll hate the september issue...

Coco Avant Chanel on the other hand, you will love.

Another brilliantly wonderful animated, illustrated site to play on...make a bubole and challenge me to a duel...

Andersen M Studio

Another amazing do they do it? Using paper, cutting it, creating 3D shapes and then using the stop-frame it, it's unreal.


I wonder if you play for as many hours as I did when I discovered this...
WARNING It will get stuck in your head all day!

Love Lula

Lula is the best magazine ever.
go to this website and watch 'her eyes are a million blue miles', I guarantee it will make you smile :o)

Festive fascinator

Today I went to the Fashion and Textiles Museum and met Mary Jane who taught me how to make a fascinator. T'was a lovely day :o) I used a combination of techniques, leather was very tricky to mold into a neat shape! I think the vintage clock face gives it the finishing touch.
