Updates to my YouTube channel are happening. Stage 1, add a playlist of customers’s videos! If you haven’t already, check out Alison, Shawnie, Ash & Mandy and their unique methods for creating a ponytail
Stage 2, film new videos with my “ponytail pack”….. just need to find volunteers to star in, and film the video.

Life is sweet and crunchy!

Today I celebrate! It’s been 11 years since I happily parted ways with my misbehaving left hand and started a new chapter of my life.

Once again I’m making up my kooky amputee gingerbread cookies, and will be asking my work colleagues to join me in a bit of sweet fundraising.

This year I have selected the Touched by Olivia Foundation (TBOF) to be the charity I raise funds for. The story behind why TBOF exists and what they do has resonated with me on many levels – because of rare vascular conditions (I have one) and how the foundation is making play accessible and inclusive for little and big kids (like me!).

There are so many amazing people in the world who have taken grief and loss and turned it into inspiration for many others. My heart and praises go out to the Perkins family for the work they (and their team) are doing for Australian communities in memory of Olivia.

If you wish to join in my ampuversary fundraising efforts and help TBOF build inclusive playgrounds and experiences, go to Touched by Olivia Foundation at http://touchedbyolivia.com.au/donate/

Alternatively you might like to purchase one of my handmade, limited edition, ampuversary gingerbread keyrings from my website. $8.00 of every keyring purchased will be donated to TBOF to help them with their projects.

11th Ampuversary

Making the most of the time I spend on my long daily commute by turning my backpack into a mobile hairtie work bench.
Been waiting for someone to give me a querying look, but they’re all head down into their devices.

Raided my magazine stack to look for examples of great print ads. My own cover is in good company with advertising guru @ToddSampsonOz!
If only i could channel Todd’s knowledge to help me make a great quarter page ad for my hairties.
Any advice from the experts on the interweb? My ad will be seen by the occupational therapists who support the limb different community, and I’ll be designing it myself…. @fitnessfirstau
