Yesterday Paul and I went on the plane to Auckland for the day. We went to see some customers for our business and had the rest of the day off to cruise around the city. It was lovely being back in the “big smoke”; lots of inspiration, beautiful shops and just the general pace of life is different than the small town I live in. Don’t get me wrong I would never trade the quieter lifestyle I have now for the polution and chaos of the city but it’s nice to get out and about. After our meetings we hopped on the ferry that takes you from the North Shore into the City. It was such a nice day 24C, the sun was shining and it’s fantastic to see the skyline from the water. I always seem to forget how much I like being on the water.
After a quick lunch we popped into this lovely big (airconditioned) bookstore, I was heading straight for the arts and crafts section leaving Paul at the magazines. They had a great selection but I had to settle on this one The Home Guide to Craft by Katherine Sorrell. It has 432 pages with beautiful photo’s and clear tutorials. I love it! I love it! I love it! I love it so much I don’t even know where to start, they are so many techniques I want to try out. It has all these cool things like acrylic moulding, screen printing, paper making and glass painting in it,
Anyway here are some pretty pics to get you excited!!
