What do you want to see and read on my blog?

As I head back to work tomorrow I’ve decided to use (some of) my last day of holidays to get organised and plan for the year ahead.

After reading lots of hot tips and suggestions from Pip Lincolne (meetmeatmikes.com/) who is a blogging queen I thought I would ask you what you wanted to see and read on this blog. Of course I have some ideas of my own, that I will present to you with an accompanying photo for your visual pleasure. I really want this blog to be dedicated to all things related to my creative life such as art, food, teaching, learning and fun stuff. I want it to just be like me, down to earth and not too wanky.

Anyway please send me ideas through the comments section on this blog or shoot me an email at selbraine@hotmail.com with any suggestions and I mean any. Please and thank-you!

SUGGESTION 1: Favourite art material of the month. This would include a short ‘how to make stuff with it’ video?

SUGGESTION 2: Things that inspire me. This could include books, movies, food, overheard conversations, student work, discussions, plants, outings, exhibitions and articles?

Inspirational things like Romance was Born exhibition book, pasta jewellery by Kate Rhode, Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition and hanging with me family.

SUGGESTION 3: Things I’ve learnt. Seeing as I’m a teacher I thought this could be quite an interesting topic to write about on my blog every week. It could be broken up into groups like ‘Things I learnt about teenagers’, ‘Things I learnt about teaching today’?

This is me learning how to paint at kindy.

SUGGESTION 4: Our house. Maybe a monthly retell of things like how I created my succulent garden, photos of how I designed our living room/ selection of furnture etc. , my collections of objects, cool design stuff in the house etc?

This is our house. It is awesome. It was designed by Robin Williams and freakin love it.

SUGGESTION 5: Food. I know everyone does it so I understand that this may not be so interesting, but I thought I could share some spice tips, Mauritian and Sri Lankan recipes, as well as my own recipes which I pretty much make up almost everyday etc. I do really love to cook and it is a big part of my life. I think this could be something I update once a month?

Here's a little spicy prawn dish I made a little while ago.
