How cute is this music video for Sarah Blasko's new song "No Turning Back"?!. The illustrations and animation are by Melbourne based artist Celeste Potter.

Also I've been finding WeHeartIt to be super slow these days, so I've been using StumbleUpon and Tumblr to look for and bookmark pretty things. Not sure if I like them yet, but WeHeartIt doesn't seem to be getting any better!!!

PS. I received a camera from The Disposable Memory project as thanks for blogging about them. I've passed it on to my bestfriend who has taken it to the country to take some pictures. Then I'll get her to post it back to me so I can finish the film. I'll let you all know how the photos turn out !
PSS. I'm off to the secondhand bookstore today to find some classics, fun!!
hope your all having a nice weekend!

• The photographer sends in a portrait.
• The portrait is sent to the writer (with no info on the person in the portrait).
• The writer writes a description of the person they see in the portrait.
• This description is then sent to an artist (without the original portrait) who then creates a portrait based on the description.
So Bec sent me a little sneak preview of her drawing before the magazine went live (it's the third picture posted here) and I thought it was amazing and stunning. Then when I downloaded the mag and saw the original photograph (click to see). All I could do was laugh!! Bec rang me and was like "did you see" then we just burst out laughing and talked about how she clearly has never been a big reader. But I don't think anyone could have predicted such a crazy original portrait.
You can read more about the project, and see the others who took part over here..

So I'm back from the conference and happy to be home. It was way to cold there!! It ended up being about 2 hours from Canberra in the snowy mountains, and snow and I don't mix too well. I spend more time rolling down the mountain then actually skiing.
Some link love:

I'm going away to Canberra this week for a work conference. I love going to these conferences as I get to learn all day and meet people with the same interests. Then at nights I can retreat to my room and have a long bath and just relax. Plus they give you lots of yummy food, my favourite is the full buffet breakfast. yum!!!
I've scheduled a few blog posts for whilst Im away, just some of my favourite images. I'm going to miss my daily blog reading, but I'll have heaps to catch up on when I'm back.

Emma Box is a final year fashion design student in London, blogging about her creative process. I always find it interesting to get more of an insight into the behinds the scenes of an artist and designer. Emma posts the whole process from helping out on a shoot, designing a new collection to putting together a hot outfit.

What do you do with the left over you
And how do you know, when to let go
Where does the good go, where does the good go
