We are loving these cute and colourful illustrations by Japanese artist Mozneko.
Check out more of Mozneko’s beautiful art on his Tumblr!
Cool poster art! Great for sprucing up your room. 🙂
Our friend Vanessa at Sail or Die makes some delightful artwork. She combines beach themes, island totems, symbols, mexican skulls and bright colours to create her incredibly fun and individual paintings. She also has a pretty cool blog too.
Vanessa is a Melbourne artist who is planning to open her own brewery!
We hope you like Vanessa’s paintings as much as we do. Hopefully we’ll catch up with her soon for an interview and she can tell you all about these paintings! In the meantime you can check her art out on Facebook. 🙂
Old school Tracks magazine, very retro 🙂
This is about as clear a starting point as I can remember, when I was coming home from school in the spring of 74 and seeing this poster out the front of the local news agency, advertising the latest Tracks Magazine. That is when I said to myself its time to start surfing, I knew I wanted to for a while but didn’t have the opportunity, or was to shy or nervous or whatever. But seeing Rory Russell on the cover of Tracks on that nice hot Balinese afternoon at Uluwatu, well that spoke to me loud and clear the moment to start is now.
Within a month I had myself a wetsuit jacket for my birthday and a Coolite foam board and I was walking to the local beach with a couple of mates to try our luck.
For some reason this cover just sticks in my mind, as the…

These wetsuits are incredible, not to mention that board spray! I’m saving up for some of these babies.
I’m so happy to have found that designers are collaborating with sports brands to create some chic surf wear! While browsing magazines at the hair salon yesterday, I spotted this adorable Roxy x Cynthia Rowley wetsuit.
More great news: she designed a whole collection of chic, colorful, and stylish surf wear!
My typical black wetsuit and white rash guards are definitely not cutting it.
This is an amazing tutorial for creating a quilt. I love making quilts, it’s time consuming but it pays off in the end when you are snuggling under your own awesome creation!
Super cute idea!
I love sending letters and this is a great way to get inspired to reconnect with your pen pal! Got to do this. 😀
Don’t you hate buying presents for people who have everything? Next time, don’t waste your money, make them some jam in an awesome jar instead.
Everyone loves jam, especially home made jam. Here’s a step by step guide to make sure the jar does your jam justice!
You Will Need
1 x CLEAN jar (make sure it has been well washed in hot water)
1 x 30 cm of Ribbon (colour of your choice)
1 x piece of Thick white paper
15 x 15cm of fabric (of your choice)
1 x Elastic band
2. Fasten the elastic band around the lid of the jar, over the cloth.
7. Spread the craft glue thinly over the back of your handmade label. Stick it onto the center of the jar. You will need to leave the label to dry completely before touching it.
NB* Do not put too much glue on your label as it will become soggy.
All finished! How easy was that? Now you have created an awesome Vintage Jam Jar to give as a gift, or keep for yourself!
If you are making a selection of jams, use different size jars to create a vintage mix and match vibe.
Be as creative as you like with the labels, ribbon and cloth choice. I always like to match the colours to the jam ie: pinks and reds for strawberry.
Make sure you wipe the jar after putting the jam in, as it can make everything very sticky. Be extra careful of sticky fingers as you won’t want to smudge your labels with jam!
My favourite recipe for Jam is very simple. Lots of fruit (strawberry jam is my favourite), LOTS of sugar, a squeeze of lemon and a few crushed apple seeds (they help it bind), all simmered on the stove until the mixture coats the back of your spoon.
