Farewell Gibbo!!

My lovely housemate, Melissa Gibson, has headed off on global adventures and I must say she is already sorely missed! Mel's in Israel right now, then heading to London, Ireland, Western Europe, then heading back to Oz with a quick month or two stop over in India and Thailand!!

Yup, I'm pretty green with envy!

Looking forward to hearing many a crazy story from her adventures...

They start at $69 (AU$79) for one, which includes the artwork, printing, frame and free shipping worldwide. Check it out on the Prices page or in How to Order.

There are worse places to spend your days…

I have to share with you some pics of our little office in Brisbane.

It is really just by chance that Matt stumbled across this place a couple of months ago and it is just perfect for our at-home office – right on the Brisbane river, 10 minutes from the CBD, and our window is level with the tree tops – Australian native eucalypts full of Australian native birds. It doesn’t get much better than that as far as I’m concerned. Although there is a down-side to all this nature… the phrase “The Early Bird Catches The Worm” has so much more meaning to me these days, although I might add they not only catch the worm early, they also like to tell their mates at the other side of the river all about it. The NOISE coming from these colourful little feathered creatures, starting about 5am, is incredible! Not that I really am complaining too much, I have always liked being a bit of an early bird…but 5am starts do take their toll when you’re trying to have grown up conversation at 9.30 at night and all you want to do is go to bed!

Ha ha... Matt and I warming up for our Courier Mail photo shoot! Must say I'm looking particularly feral... I promise I got a little more presentable in time for Mr Courier Mail to show up!

Social Entrepeneurs...

This journey into the economic opportunities offered by the world wide web has really got me thinking of where it can take us (us meaning you, me and the rest of the world). I mean, if two well-educated Aussies can sit in their rented apartment with little more than a couple of laptops and a good internet connection and start a global enterprise with a budget of less than $1000… (ha ha, now you know how loaded we are!)… what amazing opportunities are there then available to others who are far less fortunate than ourselves? So as I’m learning more and more of what the web has to offer, I’m trying to think of ways that to apply this knowledge in ways other than building up my own cash flow.
Fortunately I’m not the only one! (it’s going to be a long while yet before my skills are going to save an under-developed nation!) There are plenty of social entrepreneurs out there and I’m very interested in learning more about them and promoting what they do. This website – – is an awesome example. This is what they do:
“Kiva lets you connect with and loan money to unique small businesses in the developing world. By choosing a business on, you can "sponsor a business" and help the world's working poor make great strides towards economic independence. Throughout the course of the loan (usually 6-12 months), you can receive email journal updates from the business you've sponsored. As loans are repaid, you get your loan money back.”

Have a look at the website, and even better, sign up if you’re in a position to do so. And if you have any of your own ideas or know of other people doing amazing things, let me know!
