Hey there loulou,

I actually drew that image myself. I can give you a copy of it, but I have to ask that you only use it for your invites since its also part of my portfolio. PM me and we'll arrange something.

5  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / Re: Where Would I Find CHICKEN FEET? on: January 09, 2007 02:07:56 AM
Here in Sydney I see them at mainstream meat shops. They sell some in the meat shop on the top level at Parramatta Westfields. Me, I just go to yum cha when I want chicken feet. I have no idea how to cook them! hehe

Cotton On on Bridge Road has some really well priced tops.  You can get some nice ones for under $10

Cotton on rocks. 100% cotton shirts for under $10. especailly during sales times. I just bought a few today, but i think I'll go back tomorrow and stock up on some. i have so many stencils made up that i havent been able to use since I don't have shirts!
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / Re: Question about digital ATCs on: December 31, 2006 12:10:30 AM
Although haven't had time to make a card (with work, life and all) I do work with both traditional drawing and digital mediums for my job. Personally I think like digital cards are jsut as good at handcrafted cards. But like handcrafted cards, the quality of digital cards depends on the materials used and understanding of the programs you use to make it.

If you want to go digital I find photoshop is one of the best programs out there for photo manipulation, painting...well everything really.

One thing i think that jsut makes working digitally easy and fun is a graphics tablet. Once you get one you'll never want to use a mouse again.
You get great control with one of these things. Unlike a mouse these things (depending on model) has pressure sensitivity, allowing you great control over shading, line thickness, and such and such. I use a wacom introus 3. this is a professional model.  the wacom grafires are student ones. both are good (although i love my introus 3) but are abit pricey.
if you're not serious about digital work, you can still get a cheap graphics tablet out there that does the same thing, but of course not as good.

there are many programs you can use. Painter is a good program to use if for drawing/painting if you want a traditional medium feel. It replicates the effect of traditional mediums effectively without the mess.

Illustrator is a vector program. It's good if your not so good at drawing, as you can go in and edit the points manually to get the shape you want. Although personally i perfer using flash (also a vector program used for animation) this is just because i work with this program more at work, and its a hassle running to programs at onces that do similar things.  (HOWEVER illustrator has far more functions).

there are alot of sites that have tutorials for digital painting and photo manipulation. I'm not at my computer now so I don't have access to my bookmarks.
but if you want some inspiration these sites are some of my favorites off the top of my head.

www.nivbed.com (this site has some nice links)
www.gfxartist.com
www.cgtalk.com this one has a forum full of advice on all sorts of digtal programs. (mind you there can be alot of jargon involved)

Wow ok that was a long post.

9  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: What to do with avocado? on: June 22, 2006 04:57:47 AM
I grew up thinking avocado's were only eating mashed up or blended with milk and sugar to make a shake. It was only when I reached year 12 that I realised people put it in salads and tended not to eat it sweet.
It also tastes great covered in condensed milk.
