"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013."

Che: The morning of the Easter parade in an absolutely fabulous hand-made hat.
Poet: The gaze that broke my heart. She has been feverish for the past four days, poor wee thing.

In between feeding and comforting Poet I enjoyed looking through your portraits this week - so much colour and joy. I completely sympathised with this sleepy sick series, hope she's better now / siblings immersed in the wonder of the world - magic / Hello Everly! - you sweet little girl, you / a gorgeous b+w shot / beautiful little Alannah checks for mail - I adore everything about this vignette. 

I was recently informed that Che & Fidel has been nominated for an Australian Writer's Centre blogging award. There's a "people choice" section and whilst I understand that the process can be a little annoying (and your time is precious) I would absolutely love your vote. You just need to go here, find Che & Fidel on the first page and click 'next' till you find 'done'. Thank you, so much.

    1. We were only allowed to use materials that we had at home. Che went to a party last weekend and there was a pinata so I grabbed the leg of the pinata horse to use as the 'top hat'. Daniel cut a black piece of cardboard, Che went crazy with paint, glue and glitter, and then we raided the craft draw for candles and ribbons. Lots of fun (and it cost nothing!) x

  63. I have tried several jackets in stores before, but they didn't fit me well, so I took chance to search on webs, found this Sheepskin Jackets UK on a picture sharing site, and finally reached this page to order, my order went smooth, and I got the perfect fit on this Sheepskin Jackets.
