NOOSA REGIONAL GALLERY (www.noosaregionalgallery.org) EXHIBITION: VOLUNTEERS SHOWCASE.
Official Opening: Friday 04 February, 6pm.
Exhibition runs: January 27 - March 13.I have my photo on canvas on display. 'Life Tilts' is an image of the waterspoons at (the once beautiful/it will be again) South Bank Water Park.Rather poignant now as they made me think of how life, with all its ups, downs and inbalances, can be upended so easily. And yet can right itself once again. Would love you to visit the exhibition and give me your feedback. Julie
SCRAPBOOKING FRAME: We have an addition to our Peg Frame range, thanks to a customer who is also a keen scrapbooker - is that a word? Anyway, with the help of Sally, our Scrapbooking frame allows your new page to be on display before you assign it to an album, or for a gift you can insert your page about (example) the family Christmas before presenting it to Grandma. What a great idea!! Lightweight, can hang or prop, shabby-chic timber with a top peg wire and a middle balance wire. Contact us for any orders or queries (Greg 0418108299) : Price $35 retail(+postage) or visit us at Wednesday's Eumundi Market (top terraces). Wholesale queries welcome.

QUEENSLAND is known for its stoic people and if we are ever going to need to be stoic it's now. The image in my post below shows South Bank (Brisbane) - this is no longer, the riverside pool and waterpark deluged, the surrounding streets under water. I feel like posting lots of South Bank images before this happened to remind us what was and will be again. But perhaps that comes later. Take strength from this internet image of a frog hitching a ride on the back of a snake - like animals that help each other, so will we. Julie x

Mother Nature is a powerful woman, and often relentless as has been seen with the current Queensland floods. There are no quips, no humorous asides for this disaster - only anguish, heartache and fear.Here in Noosa we were spared, but my heart and thoughts go out to all those affected. Please keep strong for the onslaught in Brisbane today and tomorrow as the water rises. My image here (taken a few months back)shows South Bank, its tranquil pool leading to the Brisbane river with the CBD beyond. Beautiful. xxx

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE ... may 2011 be all you want it to be and that you fulfil all your dreams.Do you make new year resolutions? I don't but I do have a little word to myself about how to improve my life, my outlook, to increase my help to others and to reach some goals along the way. To complete one of the many books begun - so many ideas that to focus on one will be the challenge. But as they say "There is a certain buzz that comes from daring to begin". Cheers.
