10 years ago

Sifting through my favourite melb crafty blogs I came across this awesome concept... 10 frames to tell what you were doing 10 years ago in 1998. I was thirteen then... so long ago!

we had a lovely talk in our writing for children class this week on the amazing Swedish-Finn children's writer and illustrator Tove Jansson. I hadn't heard of Jansson's work before, but this week has involved a veritable binge on her 'Moomins' series written during the 50s. Her paintings are exquisite, classic, block coloured works with a unashamedly nordic feel.
