isiiad - An Isiiad Merry Christmas

Isiiad banner2

 

Isiiad (I saw it in a dream) is an arts and design blog. It is centred in Warrandyte and the surrounding Yarra Valley but will go where ever my creative spirit takes me… so Warrandyte to the world. Creator and blog owner is Jeannette Davison.

An Isiiad Merry Christmas

Isiiad_Xmas_4

Isiiad wishes you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Isiiad_Xmas_1

Thank you to all of my thousands upon thousands of readers for your emails, comments and support throughout the year.   I can't tell you how much I have enjoyed bringing you the arts and design (and just a tiny morsel of food) from my new hood.

Isiiad_Xmas_13

Isiiad is going to take a little break between Christmas and New Year but rest assured dear reader that it will be back in the blogosphere on 2nd January 2012. (I can't believe I just wrote that, what ever happened to 2011!) There are a couple of blogs on the drawing board from Tarrawarra Museum of Art, to encourage you to make the trip out there during January and my old favourite Montsalvat, has opened up some more studio space where two new artists are busy being creative. So I've got news and pics aplenty from my recent visit there.

Don't forget that Isiiad is now on fb so if you are wondering what I've been up to, you can always get the latest blog news there.

May your home be full of love and beauty during the festive season.
