So a few weeks ago I was sitting with a friend having dinner, just reflecting on it all and I mentioned about how I was ‘stuck’ and now I hadn’t designed, or brought out anything new. My friend was gently encouraging, and just said start small, you can do this, focus on 1 piece at a time. The safari scene, is a redesign of the first safari I cut, but I started from scratch. I knew I wanted giraffes, elephants and a rhino. And a giant setting sun. So this was created. The witch one, is just the coolest piece I decided to cut at the same time because I have a wall that NEEEDS this. I’m so fortunate to have such amazing supportive friends I think! So these 2 are dedicated to her. Cheers Amy 🥂 . . . . . . . #safari #africansafari #witch #elephant #giraffe

I. Need. The. Sun. So I’m gonna go book a holiday or a few nights away something 😂 I did this piece for a friend, rope detail and all and while I was working on it all I could think was how badly I need some Vitamin D, and a huge glass of orange juice at the beach (full disclosure this piece is NOT for sale, I can do similar but I won’t be doing rope for anyone, that’s not me or my jam and honestly while I love it, just another thing on my plate that I don’t need..) You would have noticed the giant banner on the website by now letting you all know that paua won’t be coming back in 2020, and this is absolutely going to be so good for my time management. I’m so snowed under with it and absolutely not enjoying the art, or any of my processes like I used to. I do have a cool range of corten spikes coming out though so I guess stay tuned for more corten and less paua 😂 I just saw something, it was basically ‘everyone is not okay’. Truth. This is me at the moment, and while nothing hasn’t majorly happened that is ‘wrong’ in my life I feel this. I haven’t had major trauma or had bitter losses, I’ve just been slogging away like I usually do. But while the world is pretty topsy turvy, it’s a GREAT reminder that we all need self love, and no one has a monopoly on feeling low. Do what (when you can) makes you happy. Reach out and love your friends and family. Check in with people. Or not. Sometimes you need space and that’s okay too. Just my 5 seconds of waffle on a Thursday. Peace, Love & Vitamin C (and sun) xxx . . . . . #sea #cortensteel #decor #kiwimade

A couple of beautiful new pieces cut and out on their way to their new homes. We are pretty much now all settled in our new home and I’ve been honestly enjoying it so much. The weight of looking for a rental, moving, kids, Plazmart and deadlines has been draining, and I didn’t realise how much it had affected me. I’ve been going back to the gym, and eating properly, getting a good amount of sleep and making time for myself at night, and shutting off properly from Plazmart from 2.30pm so I can be fully present for the kids. That’s been so rewarding in itself. Next step is to (pay for!) swimming lessons for them coming into Summer because I’d love to be able to trust them both a little more near the water and be able to do afternoon missions to the lake! Totally also been enjoying this warm weather, and honestly feeling so much more at peace with myself and my life and not in so much turmoil 🥰 finding a flow and going with it is key I find, it’s easy to get out of a rhythm and a lot harder to get back into one, but baby steps! . . . . . #peace #dove #cross #love

Sent to Kmart to buy a bottle opener (that was $2) and end up spending $29 on all the other ‘stuff’ that’s essential. Not sure how that happened. A phenomenon like the Bermuda Triangle perhaps.. 🤪 Just had the invoice that these babies have been powdercoated so any orders placed tonight I will ship overnight courier if you were still after something for dad or the father figure in your life for Father’s Day this Sunday...! I’ve just uploaded them now so I won’t accidentally oversell the 3 Deer I’ve got!! . . . . . . #fathersday #deerhead #stagart #metalart

Little duo that headed across the ditch earlier in the week. Loving that kiwiana pop, the kiwi and the gecko with the paua. You might notice I have been abit slack in posting recently, truth is I’ve been struggling with my balance and honestly my social life. One thing I’ve come to realise is just how lonely being a mum can be, with little kids running around and honestly I see why parents go back to work! I hugely admire those who can do the stay at home job but man I crave that intellectual conversation and the social aspect of work, whether it be marketing or legal work from my previous jobs, even just bouncing ideas off one another. I’m definitely abit worn out (hence the creativity of actually writing a post on Facebook is getting in the too hard basket) so I’ve been focusing on being kind to myself and trying to explore some strategies of getting that conversation that doesn’t consist of going down to my partners business and talking to his guys 😅considering all avenues that are going to work in well with Plazmart, my creativity, something that will be beneficial to my mental health and most importantly my kids.. any suggestions while aren’t required, are hugely helpful! One thing I do know, is that the art is AWESOME for making me feel good so I honestly feel like I’m nailing it with that 👌 Anyway happy Sunday, hope everyone’s week is gonna be a good one ☀️

Yesterday I CAUGHT UP. All my work is now CURRENT. I can’t even begin to explain how amazing that is 😂 taking all of last week off to pack & move house during the hours of 9-2 while the kids were at kindy, loosing all my paua and glue, and just the general disarray of a house in transition hasn’t been the most fantastic thing, but I am so stoked that it’s all done! This was the first paua piece I did at the new place, and honestly was so so nice to sit with my coffee and just create again. We have a little pond & waterfall in the corner of the garden so creating and listening to the water fall was absolutely magical. I’m in full swing now prepping for Christmas, I do want to let you know that there will be a slight increase on these starting from next Sunday (6th September) as well as the paua ferns so pricing on these will go to $249 and the paua family tree up to $249 also. These haven’t ever had a price increase so abit overdue due to the pricing on pretty much all of my materials drastically have increased 😭 So nice to be back in the rhythm of things, and looking and planning ahead for summer ☀️

Lately I’ve just been so drained. And with lately I mean the last 3-4 months, and by drained I mean there is no creative influence for anything. I go to bed tired and wake up tired, I don’t sleep proper nights and wake up several times. I know while my depression seems relatively manageable, my anxiety is through the roof. But you know what? This isn’t just me. This is a pretty common occurrence throughout NZ right now and definitely in the past 6 months. It’s very very prevalent on a lot of international Facebook groups I am part of so while I feel sometimes that I have no idea what I’m doing or how I’m doing and I feel like I’m failing because nothing new is coming out, I’m reminded that it’s not only my own headspace that’s not coping with a global meltdown, ‘everyone’ (I say that loosely as you never know who might be struggling) else is feeling some sort of effect too. I’ve been so grateful in the past 6 months to Brad and my 2 kids, not to mention everyone else who have been quietly or vocally supportive, without Brad and the kids I wouldn’t have much of a reason to do anything. I’m so so fortunate for them, healthy kids and a wonderful partner. They are my mains and I’m so so lucky. I received an email from a long time customer a week or so ago just expressing her gratitude for my art, and it honestly brought me to tears. The overwhelming aroha shown to me from those Plazmart individuals is so humbling and I’m so grateful to you all. 🖤 . . . . #grateful #love #aroha #nzmade

HOPE anchors the Soul. HOPE is about being able to see the light despite all the darkness. This is so so relevant to me currently and I feel also to what is currently happening around the world. I just want you all to know that despite everything, new cases or recovered, quarantines and ‘levels’ the world is still spinning and it hasn’t fallen off it’s axis. For me during level 4, with 2 little kids, a business and a hubby working from home doing some big projects, finding a new Normal was the way to go. It was 2 little things: being able to enjoy a coffee hot in the morning uninterrupted, and when Olivia my then 18 month old tornado was asleep, a walk or a run in the forest. Those normal things to look forward to started being the me time, the little rays of sunshine in what might normally be a really really stressful day and in turn, my rays of hope. Cool piece I did for someone last week. Almost moved in, probably got a day or so of cleaning. We were fortunate to have a crossover between old & new place so while moving has been hectic, it could have been ALOT worse!! I hope all my Plazmart Whanau are doing okay, please remember that whether you need support for essentials, financially, emotionally, there are organisations out there that can lend a hand. And to all my Auckland ones, You Got This. 👊. . . . . #hope #anchor #art

On Friday I turned 25, and on Saturday I gathered my friends & Whanau together and we had a party. The party was really a re-do of my 21st where I was VERY sick with hyperemesis as I was 12 weeks pregnant with Jack. Finding out I was having a baby unexpectedly at 20, having one of my important friendships dissolve unexpectedly, being so so sick, studying and struggling to be as independent financially before I was a stay at home mum was very challenging. At 25 weeks I started alongside my study working a marketing job for 25 hours a week, while commuting to Hamilton and exams. Of course this was a recipe for disaster, burning the candle at any end possible. I made some amazing new friendships at my job which have sustained me til now, with Plazmart and another wonderful child. I felt so guilty for such a long time, resentful of anyone and everyone because the whole time I was struggling with depression and some major anxiety issues that hadn’t really ever been dealt with, hanging around since my early early teens. It was a testament though, on Saturday night just how far I’ve come with my friends and family I so love and adore, on all those people who have stood by and supported me. Life isn’t easy, but it certainly makes it so much more so when people who care and people who show up for you, every time. People who only have positive and encouraging things to say. So for my 25th Birthday, thanks to my friends and family, and my Plazmart Whanau who show up for me, who actively encourage and support me, my process and my art, you guys are the absolute bees knees. Please remember that this too shall pass, what is hard now won’t be hard forever, and everything is relative. No one has a monopoly on feeling down, depressed or anxious so don’t feel like you need a ‘reason’ to be so. We are all human, all perfectly imperfect and as I realised on Saturday night, way way more people love you than you realise. And if you are doing it tough at the moment, I love you too. -all the feels now from my birthday and now this hook completed for a fantastic patient Plazmart customer. . . . #hook #pauaart #21stkey #kiwiana #aotearoa #newzealand

What an absolutely hectic time. Level 2 and then level 3 hanging over our heads, mask shortages and people queuing up down the road for what seems like kilometres for a covid test. I’m 25 tomorrow but i don’t really feel like there is any reason to celebrate. Having a rest this afternoon with my coffee and contemplating that I won’t be the only one feeling a little flat. It’s such a scary time for all. I’ve been pumping out as MUCH Plazmart as I can to get and stay on top of my work as well as yesterday I placed a mask order with my supplier who I use for all my magnetic mounting and standoffs. They are due to arrive from the 26-28th August so I will be overnight shipping these (popped them up on my website for anyone who wants to grab them, washable masks with 2 disposable 5 layer carbon filters) -I’m not going to be mass advertising these as I originally intended to purchase for my whanau & friends and then realised well you guys totally fit that category. So they are there if you need. 2 custom signs done this week also, beautiful corten steel, the Bach sign is the same style as the lake house one. Once again so privileged and humbled that time and time again you choose me to create these. And on the eve of my birthday, all I can say is thank you 🥰 . . . . . #thebach #farmsign #cortensteel

So today is the final day for my sale, I’ve updated / uploaded a couple of extra items too to the sale tab. Including my birds & welcome sign that I so absolutely adore. To me there is something about yellow, it’s the colour of the sunshine ☀️ and always catches my eye whenever I’m out and about and see that colour. Also my favourite flower is a sunflower 🌻 so yeah 😁 sale will end tonight at 9.30pm to give me some time to take everything down. Oh, and there are a couple of paua pieces loaded in too... . . . . . #welcome #birds #art #kiwiana
