Perth Arena

I drive past the Perth Arena on my way to work.

In the beginning I absolutely hated it - it looked like something from outer space had crash landed on the site.

As the weeks turned into months and I watched it take shape I began to warm towards it, but now that it is finished I have to admit that I really like it.

I think Perth needs this kind of creativity - even if only to polarise views and opinions.

Christmas Colour

Because I make things out of old books I always have bits of paper floating around on my desk. I am loath to part with things that could still be put to use and eventually I have come up with a way to use all the leftover bits of sheet music, atlas pages and other odd pieces of paper.

It involves quite a lot of folding and glueing, but the end result is a collection of cheerful pleated circles that can be hung up as decorations.

I will be bringing some along to my next market - Unwrapped in the City - on 9 December.
