Day 365/365: They said you'd never make it, with your colourful ideas...

Crimped hair by David at Bedrock! Ken Done glasses, earrings from Japan,Uniqlo skivvy, Pumpkin Patch bolero from op shop with Howard Arkley brooches, Ken Done fabric into *amazing* necklace by Birdmonkey, Estilio belt, The Social Studio ra-ra skirt from Ken Done curtains, pillowcases and other fabric, Ken Done socks donated by Cousin Christine, my new Fluevogs, NY ring from Iain, vintage bangles, and Ken Done tote donated by Cousin Christine.

Gasp! Gush! Eeek! I've made it! You've helped me!
Look at how much *GOOD* work we have Done!
Presenting The Mother of All Ra-Ra skirts made by the *amazing* Nicole and Anna at The Social Studio. Here's what it looked like in the making:
And here's the SPECTACULAR detail:
I. Love. This. Skirt. I. Love. The. Social. Studio.

Now check out too, this *wonderful* handmade necklace by Birdmonkey. Is there anything this artist can't do?!
The socks because they make me happy...
The Tote, because we are 'Done'.
And finally, my genuine Ken Done $1 dollar coin. My Dad gave this to me. And see my smile? That's because look to your right just how much you've helped me to raise!!

Take a bow, dear readers, I owe you all a HUGE amount of thanks xo xo

CONGRATULATIONS! $16,000 is a massive achievement, well done.

I'm a bit sad I found your blog rather late into your year (after I saw the SMH story on you), because it's one of my favourites. I hope you keep this blog going in some form or another.

Enjoy your party!

Auntie Jackie,

We're so proud of you! Well done on getting through the year and for everything you have achieved. It's really highlighted the creativity, persistance and caring (not to mention unique style) we love you for!

And what a great outfit to finish on...

Enjoy tonight, we're sorry we can't be there to celebrate with you.
