we shall fill innocence
with the strength
we have so long been lacking
we shall never again be alone

we shall flee rest, we shall flee sleep
we shall outrun dawn and spring
and we shall fashion days and seasons
to the measure of our dreams


my raison d'être

I literally cannot go one whole day without someone asking me for something
I have nothing left I’m sorry


Nicki Minaj is actually one of my favorite people.

I watched like 5 minutes of American Idol, and this kid was….not so good. While everyone else was laughing at him, she comforted him, told him to come to the desk and held his hand as she told him that even though singing might not be his forte, he could do so much because he’s young and full of life. And has a lot of guts going on the show. Then she gave him a hug.

Seriously I don’t understand how people hate her????

‘MADE BY HAND’ is a short documentary about the handmade art culture featuring the works and words of some of Melbourne’s game changing young artists. 


I am incredibly nervous to unveil this to the world. This project was very challenging, I have little to no experience filming, editing, directing people, finding nice music etc etc. But to every one fault and frustration I encountered with this project, I have ten incredible memories from undertaking it. That’s 1:10, which if you’re good at maths you will know means I had a way good time making this.

While studying I’ve found that if I set a goal for myself that more than three people tell me I won’t be able to achieve in time, I will work very very hard to prove them wrong. I’ve certainly made myself proud by starting and finishing this, and I know for a fact that I will look back on this in 5 years and be incredibly chuffed with myself. 

I have to start a new paragraph to fangirl over the absolute superstars who feature in this documentary. I cannot thank you enough for your time, patience, hospitality and good energy. Every time I was on my way to meet one of you for the first time, I said a little prayer that people in this industry are so welcoming and positive and as I packed up my equipment and said my endless thank you’s and goodbyes, I said another big prayer that I had the audacity to ask in the first place. I had so much fun with all of you, and will forever be bragging about getting this opportunity. I’m going to make a list of everyone in this film who you should check out because each and every person who touched this made it infinitely better. That also goes for George and Miles, who trusted me with their music and my friend Sarah Maunder who did her second voiceover for one of my uni videos and sat with me while I did the final editing. I really hope you all like this and can be as proud of it as I am.

I have watched it around 10,000 times and still feel like I am clinging to the last shreds of it (adding more footage, changing the volume of everything too many times, finessing over titles) so please be kind in your judgement of my film skills and focus your attention on the artist babes and good tunes. 

Thank you for watching, let me know what you think and please go and check out all the artists featured! :~)

Ps. Miles made the song that plays during Gemma’s interview especially for this documentary, how rad is that! 

My new friend Tatanja has released her mini documentary! Tatanja did the most amazing job of capturing everyone so naturally. This has to be credited to her kind and effortless spirit in treating strangers like me, like little homies. Super chuffed to be surrounded by friends in this as well - everyone is making such great stuff and working so hard.

Thank you for including me in your mini doco, T. So glad to call the bundle of energy and generosity that is you, my pal x

Reblogging because this actually is a thing that should concern more people. 

Important note: Plants from Home Depot and Lowes and Wal-mart garden center etc are often treated with bee-killing pesticides. Plant from seed, or buy from organic garden centers or small local businesses that can tell you about their planting culture.
