A walk in the neighbourhood

A walk in the neighbourhood, originally uploaded by silvermonk.

After dinner we went for a walk and kicked the ball in the park... I took this with our new Canon Camera! It even got a video mode. The technology has gone leaps and bounces, for less money and you got more features. ( Finger cross this one last longer, we don't want to buy a new camera every year!)

2007 has been a big year. Gabriel transited from Child care to Kindy He's been mature a lot and enjoy his school! That is a very good start considering he's got a good 16 years of schooling ahead of him and we only have his Kindy teacher Ms. Castano to thank for! Her love and care is so unbelievable, we wish her every success in her new school, the kids will miss her!

The best day of his Kindy yr according to him was the day when a stand by teacher took the whole class out to running around and around in circle in the playground........boys are boys, their growing body needs to move. At 6 and a bit , he is ready to go out and explore the world. He is no longer a mummy's boy and want to do boy's stuff with dad. I am really proud of him.

2007 has been a good year for me as well. I real thankful for my customers in the Kirribilli art and design market. I enjoy have a chat with them once a month and show off my new design. Market is a place where i see it as a good venue for community building!

Talking about community, who would think that you could make friends with people that you have never meet in person.... But i did make some friends through the blog, Flickr and the Etsy community. Friends, your comments , words of encouragement is much appreciated.

Of course Mr.Silvermonk is a big part of this, not only that he put foods on the table and put a roof over our head, he really put his trust in my art and support me ( while i am writing now, he is cleaning up the kitchen sink the minute he came in the door after seeing a client! )
I am really lucky!

Well, 2008 is ahead and already looking bright. I got my first wholesale today, up in the beautiful blue mountains.....

May 2008 be a year of peace in all fronts
God bless!
