Fathers Day

Dear Mum...

 My father was absent for my whole life but  mum was the best Dad any girl could wish for and I made sure she always knew it, every year I would wish Mum a happy fathers day.

This year is the first year where I don't get to tell her what a truly awesome Dad she is/was.....and it blows...
My eyes are puffy from tears, my head feels poundy and my heart feels heavy as I am reminded of what I lost but through my loss and pain there are the memories of the greatest dad that ever graced this earth.  

Some of us have really sucky dad's but there is always someone else to fill their place in our lives so for those of you out there in the sucky dad club, don't despair on fathers day, but take the time to thank the person in your life who has truly helped to guide you and shape your life, let them know they are loved and cherished and appreciated!!!!!

Happy Fathers Day Mum!!  I love you and miss the shit out of you.......especially today...

Bill "Muthafuckin" Murray ladies and gentlemen...

Dear Mum...

I have been invited to be part of a Bill Murray exhibition at Gallery 1988 in California.  We have been asked to do our own interpretation of Bill in one of his many great movies, so I chose his 1981 comedy "Stripes".
And because I live in New Zealand where our indigenous people are maori who traditionally tattooed their faces to symbolise their rank within their tribes , traditionally known as "ta moko". combined with my work as a tattoo artist I thought, "you know what?! I'm gonna tattoo Bill Murrays face!!"

So here he is, I hope you like!

Dear Mum...

Dear Mum...
I can't believe it has been 3 months since posting on intention for creating this blog was to update it with all my crafty creations as a dedication to my beautiful mum who passed away 6 months ago today..

I never realised by dedicating it to her it would be so extremely difficult to actually post stuff, but the only way to get through it is to just do it...many of you out there, my friends, will think that I'm doing okay but there is not a day that goes by that doesn't hurt like fuck....every stitch I make is a stitch that mum taught me, I create them with fingers that look identical to hers  (  even if mine are slightly fatter :)  ) and as I sit and sew everyday I am reminded of how incredible she was...

So here are a few of my recent creations which, Mum, I know would make you smile  

Ninja Turtles for an exhibition in America
 Sloth for Goonies exhibition
And bread with jam and peanut butter that I sell at Kraftbomb

And I promise to post much more often!!!
