Katrina Christ - Photography Perfection!

 I often get asked about our photography by people wanting to know who takes our beautiful photos for Gelati Art so I thought I would share with you the secret to our success... 

The super talent behind these gorgeous photos is the lovely, lovely (and slightly crazy) Lanni at Katrina Christ Photography in Brisbane.

I first met Lanni a few years ago when she came to our home do some family portraits for us.

These are just a few of the shots she took. Aren't they fabulous? These photos and many more take pride of place on our walls at home, in my husband's office and at various members of our extended family's homes.  

Lanni has a larger than life personality and a real knack with children, she's extremely talented at getting her little subjects to relax, be a little bit silly, and have loads of fun, and that's how she creates these sensational photos. I can't wait to get her back to do some more soon.

As a sign of appreciation to our lovely friends at Katrina Christ Photography we're going to be offering a Gelati Art giveaway next week so stay tuned for more info.

Mathilda's Market - one more thing...

Oh and I forgot to mention, if you would like me to bring a particular piece or set of canvases or prints to Mathilda's in your city, please email me: Unfortunately we won't have everything from our range on display as we only have a small space so if there is something you are considering please let me know as I am only too happy to bring it along.

We're coming to at Mathilda's Market near you soon

This February and March I am participating in four Mathilda's Markets: Brisbane (new venue at Eagle Farm), Canberra, Sydney (new venue in Paddington) and Melbourne. I really enjoy this event, especially getting to meet my customers, so please pop by my stand if you are planning a Mathilda's shopping trip. I can't wait to do a bit of shopping myself - Mathilda's is a great place to stock up on birthday presents. I'm hoping there will be some lovely things for boys as I always find it so tricky buying for my four nephews. I'm also very excited that my family will be joining me in Canberra as we have planned a special weekend away there to see the Masterpieces from Paris exhibition at the National Gallery. Can't wait!

Back to school fun

How cute are these bag tags? These are what I ordered from Fairydust for my little Preppy for his first year of school. Aren't they absolutely adorable? Fairydust belongs to a lovely, lovely customer of mine. As you can see she is super clever. 

And these are the ones my daughter chose. We also ordered the matching labels for their books and lunch boxes. So gorgeous! Thanks Toni, for making back to school so much fun!

It's a Pirate's Life for Me!

Helllo! I'm finally back after a very, very jam-packed two months. I didn't plan to stay away for this long but I was completely overtaken with Christmas (and Christmas orders), holidays, family coming to stay, new year orders (January is the most popular time to decorate kids' rooom!) and lastly getting my two off to school. Rather a big deal in our household this year as the family baby started Prep. So far so good I'm pleased to report; although this morning he did ask me, "Why do I have to go to school every day?". With all this going on I've hardly had a moment to catch my breath let alone blog. It's good to be back, though,  I've missed the world of  blogging and I have lots of exciting things to share.

A-M's favourite nook this week features our Cute Pirate - I'm chuffed!

First up for 2010 I thought I would share with you an impressive boy's room that features none other than our Cute Pirate canvas print. I came across it this week on one of my all time favourite blogs, The House That A-M Built. A-M's house is simply to die-for (thousands of blog followers from all over the world drool over it, myself included) so you can imagine how thrilled I was to see my wall art take pride of place in her son's superb room.

All little boys need their cuddle toys 
And what a room! It so spacious, stylish and practical. It has everything a boy needs: a huge window for daydreaming, a big desk for drawing and homework, a giant armchair for reading, a massive wardrobe for storage and lots of mirrors for practising rock moves. I love the red, white, blue and navy (with a hint of green) colour scheme - so classic and timeless. And I love the subtle and tasteful pirate theme.Ticks all the boxes for me. I bet he loves it too!
