Nice things do happen to good people.

Congratulations to my blog buddy Gay McKinnon of Silvergum Studio in Tasmania who has just won a  competition for children's book illustrators. I hope this will lead on to greater things for her and the chance to have more exposure to publishers. Her delightful drawing are deceptively simple and rely on wit and whimsy rather  than technology to produce a feeling of liveliness and fun. Gay is an established glass artist but is courageously following her dream to break into another field, you can see her work on her blog HERE.


  1. Wow, thank you for this Carole! and for your enthusiastic congratulations on my blog which really made me grin. Yeah, maybe I will get fame and fortune at last! I still think YOU should do a book.

  2. Oh my gosh, it's you guys! This is all just terribly super cool and I agree, sign me up for a first edition of the origa-me etegami book.
