Pop-Up Market this Saturday!

I was so excited when Ellie from Red Seed Studio asked me to take part in her open studio and pop-up market.  With so many fabulous designers it's a given that I'll be spending a lot more than I'll be making ;)

Here's a little peak at some of the designers involved:

And I'm really looking forward to checking out Red Seed Studio's new wares.

Plus Nook shop will have a little set up and my fave fashion mag Peppermint. There'll be a yummy little spread of home made treats too so pop in for a little shop, a chat, a nibble and a gander at Ellie's fab studio space.

market wrap up

Thanks Sandrine for the pic :)

Thanks to everyone who came and visited my little stall at the last two markets. The BrisStyle Indie Eco Market was a blast as always and I scored myself a very fancy iphone cover from Good Boy Cracky plus a very cool cushion from Collecting Feathers.

Thanks Christina for the pic :)

And on Friday night the GoMA Twilight Market exceeded my expectations in a big way so it's back to the stitching board for me!

The shop is slowly filling up with treats. Brisbanites can catch me at the next pre-Christmas market instalment this Friday night at the BrisStyle Indie Twilight Market from 5-9pm at King George Square in the city.

See you there!

to market, to market

November has kicked off with a bang of sewing into the wee hours of the morning in preparation for some very exciting pre-Christmas markets!

Kicking the month off this Saturday is the BrisStyle Indie Eco Market at St Augustine's Church Hall and Grounds, Racecourse Road, Hamilton from 9am-2pm. This one is by far my most favourite BrisStyle market, the marketeers go above and beyond the call to celebrate all that's eco, sustainable and crafty. Plus there are some really great workshops happening on the day, check out the full range of details here.

It's been a busy little year for me so I didn't apply for Finders Keepers this time round however I'm very excited to announce that a selection of my products will be available on the Udessi stall. Finders Keepers is on this weekend 6 & 7 November at the Old Museum from 10am-5pm. Details here.

The Twilight Christmas Design Market at GoMA always makes for a great night out! Enjoy a casual drink at the cash bar while browsing the work of fabulous designers. It's all happening next Friday 12 November from 4-8pm at the GoMA forecourt, Stanley Place, South Brisbane.

And finally the BrisStyle Indie Twilight Market is on again and promises to be the best instalment of Twilight yet! I'll be in the co-op section on Friday 19 November from 5-9pm at King George Square in the City.

More news about December markets coming soon and if you missed my newsletter today you can check it out here.

See you at the markets!

the one that made me cry

I like finding out about where food comes from. Some people don't and I respect that. Sometimes when you find out it changes something inside you. I think that's what this book will do for a lot of people. Writers like Jonathan Safran Foer are slowly changing the way we think about our actions. If you like finding out about food too check out this link.

Dreaming of a White Christmas?

Thinking about Christmas? I know some very organised people who are which is why I'm busy making White Christmas Birds this week.   


Available for pre-order in the shop now.

See you in a few weeks!

kittens inspired by kittens

Ok, so after my last post a friend directed me to this hilarious video which features a kitten that looks suspiciously like my little Cellar Door.

After watching it I came across this even funnier one which takes 'kittens inspired by kittens' to the next level!

hehe, enjoy your weekend!!

cellar door

Hello lovely readers, I'm just popping in to introduce you to a lovely little lady who moved in with me recently. I'm not one for responsibility, far from it, but who could resist those big blue eyes.

She'd like to go outside but there is a tendency for cat fights to go down in our little block of units and she's far too precious for that. Plus I'm not technically allowed to have pets but she's well behaved and very quiet so hopefully we can keep it under wraps.

Her name is Cellar Door but if you visit you can call her Cellar.


In other news, the day job has been nuts so this space will be bare for most of August. I've just returned from Melbourne Art Fair, the DUST conference is this weekend (are any of you going?) and then it's off to lovely sunny Cairns for the Indigenous Art Fair.

You can catch me on Saturday 4 September at the next BrisStyle Indie Designers Market from 9am-2pm at St Augustine's Church Hall and Grounds, Racecourse Road, Hamilton.

See you there!

P.S. Yes, the pear in the first shot is from moose & bird and if you feel the need to take on a little responsibility you too can have your own flat pet from here. There's also very cute pet bunnies but bear in mind that having a bunny as a pet in Queensland is illegal :(

sweet sweet treats from mon petit poppet

Did you know there are 2 BrisStyle market events happening? The first one is Twilight on Friday night from 5pm at King George Square in the City.

cheeky little face from Good Boy Cracky

Then on Saturday there will be a big BrisStyle Co-op Market at Red Hill Fair along with loads of other fun stuff to do.

lovely little helpers from shelleyberelli

There'll be lots of nice peeps selling nice things at both markets including me ;)

See you there!

blue caravan

Have you checked out blue caravan? There's a whole lotta style going on over there with the way sellers photograph their wares.

I love the cute little hands holding the pear in this shot.

And the beautiful wooden fence in this one.

This shot just makes me wish Summer would come round quicker.

But the best shot has to go to that girl, for having the guts to stick her un-manicured hand in front of the camera, brazenly holding up her brooches for the world to see. That's right, this shot says, they're not cut by a machine like so many others that have come before, they're cut with these hands!

I've set up shop over at blue caravan too, you can check it out here :)
