I have my Business Certificate and I'm celebrating with bubbles for one! sounds a bit sad, but no, firstly it's an absolute scorcher in Adelaide (Australia) today... 43 degrees C (nearly 110 deg. F) and secondly I'm happy study time is over and I can get on with more Hooked On You creations. It's a long time since I've been in a classroom and thankfully nothing like the school I remember. There's something to be said for mature age students, we were all there because we wanted to be and thanks to Doris our teacher, who made every lesson informative and entertaining.
There's so much I want to do and so little time left, the year is fast coming to an end. Maybe just as well, late nights working at my table are beginning to take their toll and I haven't been able to shake off a cough I've had for months.
As for next year, I'm excited and looking forward to presenting some new designs, new photos and a video.

A year of Adventure
If I could sum up the last 12 months, that's how I would.... a year of adventure and hard work. Nothing is easy, but it helps if you enjoy what you do.
It all started with an idea, then the idea became a reality but there is so much more that happened in between. My multitasking kitchen table doubles as my design and manufacturing station, as well as art studio and I'm grateful to all my family and friends who understand how I roll! Oh, and we've enjoyed many a fine nights dining, ala Ingrid's culinary style around that table.
Behind the scenes
To watch my creations come to life in the studio was absolutely awesome and again there was a lot that happened in between. First of all, I met with the photographer, I told him, "I had never done anything like this before". He was patient, very patient and down to earth. He explained everything I had to do... I took notes and asked so many questions, then called, sent texts and emailed, as I said he was very patient.
The first time I showed him my design layout, I was so nervous and sure he would find something wrong... I was so relieved when he smiled.

Work needs to be balanced out with a bit of fun too.
