Trick or Treat Totes

Every year the CBD where I live comes alive with the ‘living dead’; zombies, ghosts, goblins, witches and more get dressed up for a huge street party in the main shopping strip of Lithgow NSW Australia.

Shops and cafes are decorated, the buildings are lit up with lighting effects and there’s entertainment galore. This year they are aiming for the National Record for the greatest number of costumed people dancing to Micheal Jacksons’ Thriller. Details on Lithgow’s Halloween16

There’s also Trick or Treating up and down the Main Street for the kids.  My Trick or Treat totes are available from my Halloween Gallery.   All images are available on a range of items including Streetwear, framed prints, mugs, travel mugs, drawstring bags, notebooks, gift cards, iPhone cases and more. 

Count your rainbows…

Count your rainbows, not your thunderstorms.

There’s a truth in every saying, even those of a 12 year old girl.  Its interesting how the happiness we feel in seeing a rainbow after rain, is mirrored in our association with pleasure and pain.  As they say “Everyone wants happiness, no one wants pain.  But you can’t have a rainbow, without a little rain” (unknown).

However, I prefer the wisdom of Maya Angelou and “Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud”. I hope that my rainbow has brightened your cloud.

There is beauty in simplicity

Some call it negative space, some call it minimalism.  I just love that haunting beauty of an early morning landscape.
