Hello! I have more awesome posts from the 27 adventure coming soon, but today I wanted to share with you that this year I also have a column over at the Creative Women’s Circle, an awesome Aussie based creative resource. I will be writing their Organise Me column sharing tips and ideas about getting organised for all things creative.
My first piece is about getting organised for a conference like Alt, but these tips can work for any creative conference really. I’d love for you to have a read of it. You can find it here!
Also, this is my 400th post and I just wanted to thank you all for all of your support over the years. I love that you’re a part of this. x

I will miss you. I’m sorry we have to part ways, but I know if I don’t go now, I won’t go ever. And I can’t live with the what-ifs.
I will miss your wide skies and clouds that go on forever. I will miss your beaches and the way that the sun reminds me how pale I naturally am.
I will miss the countryside, though I am a city/beach dweller at heart. I will miss how Melbourne bustles and how Flinders Street Station stands so bold and marvellously on a summer’s day.
I will miss the happy memories that I have made here, all the laughter and love. I will miss the familiarity and how the words bogan and reckon and fortnight are so easily understood. I will miss the lovely friends I have made, especially those over the last 4 years.
Sometime in the future I will miss you like never before. I will miss all the good things and probably some of the bad too. I will listen to Cold Chisel and Paul Kelly and Crowded House and they will transport me home like they have so many times before.
I want you to know though, that some of what I’m leaving behind I don’t want back. The isolation and the feeling that I don’t quite fit, they can go into the Pacific and stay forever more. I won’t be needing them, and I’d prefer if you didn’t hand them on to someone else.
You will always be my home, the place I grew up and the place that helped shape how I saw the world. You are a blessing through all your faults, like home is to so many of us no matter where we were born.
While I’m gone, I hope you will keep making progress and remembering that your people deserve equal rights. I hope that you will be a wonderful place to come home to (whenever that time comes) and somewhere that your people can feel safe and loved.
Please keep the people I care about as safe and well as you can.

My Grandma’s lovely friend Joy (the awesome vintage finder) found this Catalogue and thought my dad might like it. I quickly snapped it up for me. Not for the content, but for the design and layout.
Design with computers is a fair bit different to what it was in the 50s and I just love the 1950s style. This is a booklet for caravan and trailer components, so the content may not be that fascinating but I love the mixture of hand drawn and the different type they have used.
I love the map and directions in the front cover and how it shows the tram route to get to it. I also thought that the last picture with it’s ‘Dual Purpose Trailer’ that can be for your car or your horse! was pretty cool!
I’m sure I’ll use this for design inspiration in the future. I think it’s great that these things survive so that new generations can see what things were like.
