Monday Blogday ~ Blogging Your Way

Last week I completed an online course called Blogging Your Way, run by Holly Becker of Decor8. The 4 week e-course was aimed at bloggers of all levels of experience and it was so much more than I expected. A nice little community was created amongst my fellow students, and Holly is a great teacher and an insightful, inspiring and thoughtful person. I think you can really tell that about her from the way she writes Decor8 – I always feel like I’m having a chat with a friend when I visit there. And with about 25,000 visitors a day on Decor8 I think Holly knows what she’s talking about when it comes to blogging! So I had no hesitation in signing up when Holly announced her first e-course.

So for for today’s installment of Monday BlogDay I’d like to point you to the lovely blogs of some of my classmates.


Sam’s Notebook
Sam is an Australian living with her family in Sweden, who blogs about her beautiful finds.

Fresh 365
A wonderful blog featuring seasonal vegetarian cooking.
Erin has also added a ‘recipes by season’ search and a metric conversion for those of us on the other side of the world.

Strawberry Lemonade
A random collection of things that make Alex (aka galexiegirl) smile.

Les Surprises de Fifi Mandirac
Fifi is a French (or did you already guess that?) graphic designer with a lovely vibrant blog.

The lovely Steph from Brisbane writes about “cool Australian art, design and products to keep you in the know”.

Happy Friday!

I love autumn. The days begin and end quite crisply and in between are glorious bright blue skies and beautiful days. Our garden is full of orange, red and yellow leaves, both on the ground and on the trees. It’s glorious.

I hope you have an equally glorious and happy weekend.

Mini Art Feelings

Meet my new friends: Sad, Cute and Balanced. They came to live with us all the way from Belgium via Etsy. Sad, Cute and Balanced are the much loved children of the gorgeous Mitsy, aka ArtMind. I’m sure they miss her, but they seem to be very happy here in Australia. Poor Balanced suffered a bit from jetlag and wasn’t quite herself for a while. But she has recovered and found her balance again.

These Mini Art Feelings are a part of Mitsy’s beautiful 99 Feelings project. Mitsy used the shape of a babushka doll as the blank canvas for her imagination. The resulting ceramic mini sculptures are minimalist and delightful. I have to say that I chose my little friends based on they way they looked rather than the feelings they portray. I like to think that little ‘sad’ is happy now and he has just been out in the summer rain.

You can see the other 96 little fellas in Mitsy’s Etsy store.
