My gift tag design

So I just recently turned 30, what a strange place to be in time. I remember being 20 and thinking that at 30 I would have my own little business empire and be married perhaps with child. Alas none of the above has materialised. Though I think it is important to note that as the years pass your goals change too. Things that are important to me now involve very little effort, time or money. So despite the low success rate on the project empire I am closer to were I ought to be. So thats ok with me.

The Great Outdoors

Thought this was interesting shape.
This is me standing in front of a waterfall at Springbrook Reserve Queensland

This is the view from inside the cave.

This little trip into the reserve was fantastic, Darwin and I headed off into the wilderness with our trusty GPS ;). It was a wonderful day out, the feeling you get when you walk inbetween the trees that have been there for amost forever is quite intense. People throw the phrase "connecting with nature" around like crackers at christmas but in this instance there was a distinctive connection. I am eager to see how my artwork will develop with all these new influences.

fORGIVE me it's been some time since my last post. I have settled somewhat in this great and of Australia and I am loving the experience. My Uni is going well and I have met some lovely people so far. I have not begun earning any money yet which is a bit of a drag but I will get something going, will keep you posted. Aah the life of a student. :)
