Deep and Meaningful?

Well I've been quite flat out lately but It's time to write on my blog! Work full time is flat out and it doesn't leave me much time to create. But I've had quite a few adventures over the last week or so!

To start it all off I had a ball meeting some lovely new people at the judging of Miss Pin Up Australia live heats down at Tweed Seagulls on the 10th of June. The contestants were also simply stunning! Such grace, poise, wonderful pin up posing and outfits! It is so wonderful to see vintage outfits and girls embracing what they have been given. There were lots of hard decisions to be made, but at the same time judging was just too much fun! There were lovely highlights I will remember forever. Here are some pictures.

I also had the pleasure to finally make it up to The Collective Store in Wynnum. Much to my Sat Nav's annoyance. I don't even know if I should buy one after it took me to a completely wrong address and added an hour to my trip after work... not to mention the wasted fuel! It was exactly like an advert on TV recently where it says to go straight ahead into water... well I ended up somewhere near a beach... not happy Jan! I don't care if you tell me 'you have reached your destination' that was not the address I typed in at the start!

Enough on that rant... The Collective Store has so many wonderful handmade goodies I didn't know where to look! I also got to drop in some resin jewellery. Will be great to see how that goes in store.

In other news I am slowly preparing stock for Greazefest in Rocklea on the 7th of August. I am sharing a stall with Journal Addiction. It should be a great day filled with markets, hot rods and pin ups! And food... I'm going to need that while I'm up there!

What exciting news!! This Friday night at Tweed Seagulls I have the amazing opportunity to judge the Miss Pin Up Australia Live Heats for 2011. I can't wait to see the glamourous ladies that have entered this year strut their stuff on stage. Contestants from all states are invited to participate this year and will go straight through with their state title to the final! I can't wait to see what they come up with for the talent section. It is always a fun-filled evening also with a live rockabilly band.

Tickets are on sale at Cooly Rocks On. The competition coincides with the Cooly Rocks On festival happening until June 13th throughout Tweed an Coolangatta. Bands, Markets, Hot Rods... who could ask for more!
