My creative space ...

I'm pretending to know a thing or two about findings, clasps and all those other things very patient jewellers deal with every day (I think I have a new found respect for them).

New pendants will be in the shop today.

For more creative space head to Kootoyoo.

Oh, and if you haven't entered my giveaway yet, head here.

the pledge

Ok, I've finally taken the pledge.

Wanna pledge too?

I know most of you out there are 100% committed to doing this but maybe there are a few who need a little push to make a couple more changes...

fabric love

I'm sure I'm not the only one who views market takings as an opportunity to stock up on beautiful Australian designed fabric. Danielle Stewart made it to my Etsy faves a while ago but it wasn't until this week that I made my first purchase and I'm so glad I did. This blue on birch Woodland screen printed fabric panel is just divine. The perfect shade of blue and pretty pattern is destined to be turned into something special.

And how could I bypass stocking up on more Ink & Spindle, especially these lovely rooftops from the new Tamarillo Collection.

So, thank you all you lovely shoppers who stopped by my little stall at the last two BrisStyle markets. Products featuring these lovelies coming soon.

market news and shop updates

The BrisStyle Indie Mother & Child market on Saturday was fabulous! With face painting, fairy floss, colouring in, snow cones, a sausage sizzle and a fairy who wouldn't have a great time, not to mention the shopping! I shared in the co-op marquee with the three Ms - Melanie, Melinda and Monica and my new sign made its debut.

The new zipper pouches received excellent feedback so there'll be more of those in the pipeline and keep an eye on my shop for the market remains which will be going online over the next week. If you'd like to be kept in the loop shop updates will be announced daily on my facebook and twitter pages.
Next up is the BrisStyle Indie Designers Market which promises to be bigger and better than ever. I'm aiming to launch another new product at this one too so pop along to be the first to see it.

BrisStyle Indie Designers Market
Saturday 5 June, 9am-2pm
Racecourse Road, Hamilton

all zipped up

It's been too long since I made any zipper pouches so I whipped up these yummy treats this week. They come in a range of sizes, each with a different embroidery design on the back and front. I'd love to keep them all for myself, however...

Check them out tomorrow at the BrisStyle Indie Mother & Child Market. Left overs will make an appearance in the shop next week.

My creative space ...

What a week it's been and there's just no stopping! My little critters are popping up on some new products, more will be revealed tomorrow and at the BrisStyle Indie Mother & Child Market on Saturday!

Even more little softies popping up around the place, and...

finally a market sign, who would've thought I'd ever get organised enough to pull this off!

(ok, please excuse the uneven sewing lines, it's no mystery that I still struggle with sewing on a curve... it adds character though, right?)

For more spaces or to show your own pop over to Kootoyoo.

Cuddly Cats are making a comeback!

Cuddly Cats are making a comeback on Saturday at the BrisStyle Indie Mother & Child Market. Pop by and say hi to these cute little faces in the co-op marquee at St Augustine's Church Grounds, Racecourse Road, Hamilton from 9am-2pm. More details here.

oh what a night!

The BrisStyle Indie Twilight Market was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who popped by to say hello. Here's my little section on the super fun co-op stall just before the sun went down.

Thinking it's about time I invested in some proper signage and a bit more colour...

Check out more Twilight fun here and future BrisStyle market dates here.

Stay tuned for more market news this week and a new product!
