April has been an eventful month for me. Over the Easter weekend, we went away camping with our friends. Always a skeptic about wide open spaces and unpredictable animals, I was amazed at the wonderful photo opportunities a camping trip could provide. And the sheer bliss of being disconnected from all your gadgets and spending time with friends and family. Nothing can beat that. I will be writing about our first camping trip soon, but today I wanted to share a stunning photo that Nick took on a solitary early morning walk when he chanced upon a gathering of kangaroos. I have been working on a lot of illustrations for a project and have managed to sneak in a little illustration work for the blog's autumn header focusing on apples, a theme that will be prevalent on the blog in the month of May.
This month we saw many birthdays in the family with my oldest turning 8, I tested a couple of recipes (excellent ones!) for Billy Law's soon to be released cookbook Have You Eaten?, I was nominated for Best Australian Blogs 2012 (would love a vote or two if you click through the link, thanks!) and I was approached to be featured and published in a soon to launch international lifestyle magazine. The month is almost at a close, but I have a list of my favourites from the month of April to share. Hope you enjoy the links!
This explanatory DIY tutorial on making Mini Terraniums in spice jars.
Davy Bonny's collection of photos are gorgeous, unadulterated and unedited.
Emi Uchida's beautiful blog about recipes made from produce grown in her own garden in Vancouver - Gobo Root
Words To Live By. Light in this photo. Moodiness in the food.
If you have young (or even slightly older) kids, I highly recommend Press Here by Herve Tullet and The Wrong Book iPad App.
Have a fabulous weekend!
