The salvaged windows are in place and we are ready for walls. Sourced some fantastic salvaged doors. Electricity has gone in since these photos. Would have liked to do a little more recycling - but I guess every little bit counts and we are learning along the way.
At last with a break in the rainy weather and in the builder's timetable we've made progress. We are ready to lay the slab, hopefully, by the weekend. We found some second hand windows too - you can see them in the background. The rain water tanks will slip in where the windows are currently stored, on top of the stumps where the old tank use to be many moons ago. Thanks to family, the ceiling beams have been cleaned and stained.
Sacred Ibis is involved in two exciting projects during February.
Reduce, Recycle, Romantic Exhibition at Reverse Garbage
Sacred Ibis is exhibiting at this event including powertex sculptures using fabric scraps and wire coat hangers and Love Me Two Times Jewelry - giving discarded and broken jewelry a second chance of being worn and loved.

Plastic Free February.
During the month of February there will be 30% off my scavenger
bags or pencil cases. Check out my Facebook site Sacred Ibis for current stock. Although no two bags are ever truly alike I can make them in a similar style if you wish to order one. If I can deliver I will to save postage.
My first interview! Check it out on the link above. Photo and Article by the lovely Linsey Rendell from The Weekend Edition.
Plastic Free February
To help promote this cause I will provide 30% off all bag sales and orders from my website, facebook page or if you catch me at a market (post on facebook). If you don't do Facebook there is an email contact form on the website. Whilst you can pay by paypal, the online shop is still in the making - for now.

Social Media! Am I on a steep learning curve or a slippery slide? Either way I'm in the rabbit hole and the adventure has begun. So much time so little to do - reverse that. I feel like the white rabbit but I don't know what I'm late for. Still I've squeezed in a new sculpture and I have my first order for 2013 so ..........
I may not have gone where I intended to go. but I think I have ended up where I needed to be - Douglas Adams.
Is a webpage!
Santa came in the form of a fabulous new friend and collegue, Ashley from Powertex Australia. Not only did she teach me about a whole new world of art, sculpture and how to run workshops but she helped me set up my new web page. Look out 2013 - I am all set to explode with creativity..............
