Since this is hypothetical I am going to assume that I am winning a very big cash prize!
1. Buy a house! We live in a very cramped apartment right now (60 square meters). In my dream home my husband would have a wood-working shop complete with tools and lumber. I would have a yoga studio. The house would be decorated with furniture my husband made and with our art (like our apartment in Asheville where we made almost everything). The kitchen would be spacious and have plenty of storage since we cook a lot. And since I have a daughter, who will become a teenager eventually, I feel certain that we would need two bathrooms haha

The peeling paste-up
ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR forms of street art in Melbourne is the paste-up: printed or drawn posters adhered to city walls with a wheat-based glue. The physical insubstantiality of paste-ups renders them particularly ephemeral — they do not have the ‘sticking power’ of paint — yet this also makes them particularly ‘active’ components of the city footprint.
