Yumi and I met for a Souzou meeting last Sunday - less a meeting and more just hanging out and thinking of all the lovely things Souzou will bring to our lives really.

I always like seeing what people have in their bag or creative workspaces. This is where I work during the week and thought give you a guided tour... got to this link to see notations on everything in the pic... a riveting look into my day-job...

For the past two years I lectured and taught Second Year design students at the College of Fine Arts. It was a great time - I love seeing the freshness and un-commericialised minds come up with such diverse solutions to design projects. And researching for the lectures each week kept my own learning about the design world rolling along.
I've been sent this great video called "The Story of Stuff". It illustrates the impact of production, distribution, consumption, and not to mention extraction of stuff.

So it turns out October had some great highlights on the Feeling Fuzzy? Blog...

I've relaxed a little about putting photos of myself up here... at first I was concerned that people would start recognising me on the streets, but I'm thinking that's not really a big deal considering the readership of this blog!
It's been a while my friends, but I'm back on board!

I really love these seats... the colour and shape appeals to me no end. I would have these in my hallway (sea-grass on floor, danish credenza near by) or even better, in the Souzou Shop! Do you think you'd like to relax on these pieces while perusing a well-chosen book or magazine?

Followed by Laser Zone, beverages in the sun, Karaoke, and a feast of BBQ King. What a day! And on a school night too. This grandma was pretty pooped!
Continuing this year's theme for birthday presents I made 3 felted dinosaurs for NP to adopt. They're a bit funny looking, but that's half their charm (or so we tell them).

Yumi and I have been working on something very exciting this week.We've been hatching a little plan for a while now and on Wednesday night we had a little light bulb go off!
I think both of us are quite keen to have our own creative nook in the world... somewhere where we can do all the things that come into our heads.
We've come up with a name which we both like - "souzou", a japanese word meaning "to create something new from your imagination".
We are going to spend the next couple of months trialing our ideas at market stalls and will keep you up to date as to when these happen.
Here are some nice pics of our creative evening... Yumi bought over a bunch of Ranunculus which inspired her paintings and my textile pieces.
NP and I were lucky enough to be guests at our friends Phoebe and Ben's wedding on the weekend. It was the most gorgeous event, with the rainmaking it even more special.
The wedding was relocated to an old scout hall in the South Coast and the reception was held in a marquee in the middle of vervant paddocks. Three loooong tables filled with flowers, a gorgeous 5 hour lunch, followed by much dancing and drinking.
The next day egg and spoon races, took place atthe brunch, and we ate freshly made crepes, croque monsiuers and delicious coffee.
There was such joy and happiness amongst their friends and family. We love you P+B!

The next great read was picked up at the NGV gallery shop. Charley Harper is one of my favourite illustrators, recently championed by Todd Oldman (America's Tonia Todman). NP wasn't so excited to see that the letter N was associated with Nest... I think he was expecting something a little more exciting...

We ate ourselves silly over the weekend...
