My Latest Creations

Here are a couple of layouts I made while relaxing on the lounge today - gotta love school holidays :)
Two of them are from some photos I took at my friends wedding over the weekend. It was held in the beautiful Sunshine Coast hinterland town of Maleny, where the bride's parents had an absolutely stunning house which was the perfect venue for this garden celebration.
The other layout highlights a quote which I stumbled across (author unknown) about tattoos. I often get asked to explain and justify my tattoo, and I am sure that my son is the same, so these photos fitted perfectly.

Cookbook Covers

This term at school we have been running an Options program with the students were they get to do some fun activities like woodwork, cooking, scrapbooking, photography and other great stuff. All the staff involved have nominated their 'specialist' area to mentor the kids - not much trouble guessing which group I'm taking :)
The ladies who are running the cooking group asked me to design a range of Cookbook covers for them, as they are going to print out the recipes the kids have been making and present a book to each student at the end of the program. They are taking photos of each child and including these on the front covers.
These two are my efforts so far. What do you think?

Proud of this boy

I'm so proud of my DS1 who has followed his dream to be a writer, and is succeeding beautifully. Here is the link to his Blog - Critical Damage. (Critical Damage is a blog about videogames—particularly about the stories we put into them and the stories we get out of them. I try to update with a new article roughly once a week varying from creative retellings of specific gaming moments to pseudo-academic musings on videogames in general.)
He has also had a number of articles published in e-zines and print media.
Check out the links to his published articles on his site.
