If you haven't seen the Sketa Oz Collection of designer occasion cards and pens, now is the time to check them out. Especially, with the festive season just around the corner. If you are in to collecting pens or have someone in mind for unique gifts, I have designed six colourful pens that you will admire and enjoying using.
Matching the pens in this designer line are two, different sets of six cards. One is in mauve and the other in burgundy. Both sets are drawn by me in black ink and watercolour. Each of the six cards have their own couple of words on the front, but the interior is left blank for you to write your own special thoughts.
I hope you will take the time to consider the Sketa Oz Collection for your gifting this festive season. If you have already made up your mind, pop over to the SO Store to make your selection and I will send them out before things get too busy. https://www.sketaoz.com/store/c1/SOS
The 2018 Sketa Oz Most Promising Senior Classical Dancer and the Most Promising Junior Classical Dancer Awards have been confirmed. Ainsley Martin took out the Senior Award, while Alicia Woods has been awarded the Junior. Both talented girls are working hard to achieve their dreams of one day becoming a full-time professional ballet dancers in a company somewhere across the globe. If I know anything, it is sheer hard work that gets you a places in life.
So, to both young dancers, we congratulate you on your success, this year! I am sure there will be more - Sketa Oz always backs hard work, resilience, kindness and a humble outlook on life. These are the qualities that stand by you, as you grind your way to the top. It won't be easy, but if you want it bad enough - It will happen!
This year, the Brisbane Eisteddfods - Dance Solos were slotted in for April, but given the occurence of the 2018 Commonwealth Games, many dancers who would normally have participated, were unable to, given they were heavily involved in the Games.
Christmas doesn't come around everyday and you won't always have an opportunity to say thank you, to the people you care about. Personally, I think one should say thank you, I love you, I care and I'm sorry - whenever you think about it. Life is so fleeting and before you know it - another year will have passed, another life will have extinguished and gone will be that opportunity you said, you'd get around to... Leaving it until tomorrow will be too late - there is only now to say everything you want to say.
This year, the USQ Bookcase as in previous years, served to be a great hit for all who attended. Many participants keenly cueing at the entrance, so as not to miss out on all the excitement.
