disintegrate/integrate project). The how began with painting the sticks. Once dry I used the correction fluid pen to draw patterns on two of the sticks. I've wrapped the others sticks with the fabrics, beads and wire. I've attached the labels with either a piece of wire or cutting a slot in the top of the stick.

A friend and I recently went a sketching near the Story Bridge. It was a fabulous day and a beautiful breeze was coming off the water, very pleasant. Later on in the day when looking through my sketchbooks and images I realized just how much and how often I enjoy getting out and exploring along the River. There are many well maintained walking & bicycle paths especially through the inner city areas. These are a few of the images & sketches that I've captured (thus far) along our river front.

Over the past eighteen months husband and I have had / made a couple of changes with our day jobs and one of the biggest positives of these changes is that we now get Christmas and New Year together - it's such a treat. We've just enjoyed two weeks off and in between the movie watching, day tripping, book reading, sketching there has been lots of baking. Mostly it's been the usual Christmas fare but there were also baking moments of pure pleasure when the kitchen became creative studio. These little tarts were one of those creative moments. Little pastry baskets filled with custard, topped with seasonal fruit and coated with a glaze of homemade peach and nectarine jam - they were delicious.
