My creative space ...
I hit the ground running this week after 2 weeks in China. I spent most of the time at the art fair and in galleries but as you can see there was a little sightseeing, check it out on my flickr.
After flying back in on Saturday it was time to woman the BrisStyle co-op stall at the Racecourse Road Street Party on Sunday. I know it looks like I'm hogging all the space on the brooch board but rest assured I moved the Jetta's Nest Bloomin' Buttonhead brooches up toward front and centre. If you don't have a buttonhead yet you really must, there's a style for everyone especially with Sam's new ECO version.
With lots of other BrisStyle shared stalls I couldn't help myself, I had to do a little shopping:
- Super comforting chenille heat pack from the mother of chenille Bubbachenille.
- So freakin' cool and ingenious sunglasses case made from non-woven 'green' bags from Chicuff.
- Yes, it's those earrings that I've been eyeing off for sooo long as seen in a previous Saturday Shopping List from Up in Annie's Room.
- Some very cool cards from the very talented Sam of Jetta's Nest for the card stash.
And my pick of the day is this I-can't-believe-someone-used-to-stand-on-it-'cause-it's-so-pretty re-purposed skateboard brooch from Red Seed Studio. More about Red Seed Studio coming soon...
BrisStyle sure does have talent. If you haven't seen the new BrisStyle website yet check it out here.
While I was eating dumplings and shopping Shanghai style (what, did someone say it was a work trip? hehe) this little package of linen arrived and I'm so pleased with it. So, expect the linen quest to resume business in this space very soon.
And finally my creative space... the sewing resumed the day I flew in and lots of planning for the next 5 weeks is underway because, I'm very pleased to announce, that edward and lilly has been accepted for the first Brisbane Finders Keepers market on 31 October and 1 November. Is that the rustling of diary pages I hear from the Brisbanites? I hope so! For the full list of participants head here. The plan is to make it the calmest and most in control market prep ever :)
