It's a record

Two posts in one day! A few weeks ago my brother very kindly helped me install my new chandelier - Kristaller from Ikea. I like it because it's quite small - perfect for not overwhelming a modest bedroom.

I had the camera out to document some 'before shots' as well (which I won't be showing until I have some decent after shots), and of course had to grab some pictures of my cat Ebony. Unfortunately she looks kind of crazy-evil because the sun was shining and her pupils are virtually non-existent! But I still think they're nice photos all the same.

Can you believe she's almost 12 years old? Since her grey whisker fell out last week she looks much younger! Haha :)

My talented mother

In honour of Mother's Day, I thought I would share some photos I took recently. My mom uses Precious Metal Clay (PMC) to create some amazing jewellery. She currently sells her work at the Gembrook Cooperative, which is a shop in Gembrook that sells various crafts and handmade items, all made by members of the local community.

I took these photos to use for some Moo cards:

Isn't she talented? I'll keep working on my photography skills - unfortunately I wasn't able to get a photo of that last pendant where I had focused correctly (I'll blame it on not having a macro lens!)
