:: PRINT SHOP ::


STATE OF JOY has branched out [again] to include a PRINT SHOP through ETSY. i have selected my favourite photographs taken over the past two year and i'll be continually adding to the selection. the large format prints are available in five [5] sizes, including a square crop: all suitable for IKEA frames. prices start from AU$68 for 30x40cm print. all prints will be signed, dated and edition numbered.

visit the PRINT SHOP here: https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/stateofjoySHOP

i am also more than happy to print any of my instagram pictures that may not be available at the PRINT SHOP.

happy shopping X

the idea of sharing my favourite instagram photograph every week didn't quite make the entire year but i did make it past the half way point. here are the last twenty weeks of two thousand and fifteen. the crazy thing is in july, i changed up my life by cutting back to four days a week in my full time employment - meaning a three day weekend. i had thought that this extra day would be entirely productive, but who was i kidding!! it was simply another day to enjoy life and do whatever i pleased while i still can...

i'd like to think that this year i'll be more present on this blog, but you always need to be very careful when making  these kind of sweeping statements. its like those who say they are going to start exercising. they go out and purchase all the latest activewear, attend five days straight of spin class and then their activewear is worn only as comfortable [?] everyday clothes. i won't make any grand statements, i know myself better than that!

wishing you all a happy TWENTY SIXTEEN, looking forward to sharing a little more with you this year X
