Ideas worth Spreading @ TEDxSydney

Yesterday was like a dream come true. I was part of the small TED community which gathered at the inaugural TEDxSydney event at CarriageWorks. It was a superb day, with inspiring talks, visual spectaculars and old friends (I bumped into an old high school friend).

Five highlights;

This fantastic stop motion video, Bathtub IV

Upular a remix from the Disney-Pixar film UP

Mr. Percival. I need not say more. The man is a genius. Would it be wrong to one day ask him to sing my wedding song? Now, that's collaborative.

In memory of my Grandparents

It's been a while since I have posted inspired ramblings or crafty creations. So this week is dedicated to both. Enough said. Actually, a bit of background information might be good. After foraging through my parents old shed, like a mouse looking for food, I discovered my grandparents old dinning room table from Vienna. The same dinner table they ate from in the mid-1940's, just after the war. My dad even remembers eating at it. He would have been only two at the time.

** I had them reupholstered in different colours, just because.
