i'm loving

goanna in the roof

spending weekends in the country where everything is so blissful and heavenly it makes me pass out (yes, literally... may have been too much country air for an over-worked city girl...);


finding out that Kylie's beautiful 3 sheets shop has re-opened and is stocked with the most heavenly triangle crochet cushions, love her love for geometric patterning;

visual delicacies on instagram, it's been especially nice seeing what ellie from petalplum has been up to since her move from the big smoke :)

Lilla Jizo's healing shards and stones, I love the beach pottery owls, just looking at them makes me feel all zen.

my creative space...

I don't get as much time to create as I used to but for the last week I've been working on a lil pendant order, tiny stitches followed by some jewellery assembling, so nice to step away from the laptop for a bit of creative R&R, here's to orders for forcing me back into le craft room :)
You can check out all of our creative spaces and show off yours here.

who me? well, I do heart etsy, so ok :)

That's Jess on the left sitting next to Krystle sitting next to Teneale at the last info session 
(sorry ladies, hehe)

This Saturday morning I'll be doing the I Heart Etsy panel thang at the BrisStyle info session.  Other super talented crafty business peeps on the panel are:

Rachael Smith from Penelope and Pip
Nicole Lacey from Hot Toffee
Jess Van Den from Epheriell and Bespoke Zine
Melanie Gray Augustin from Kimono Reincarnate
Sophie Straton-Ferrier from Strat Designs
Emma Gascoyne Red Revival Design and Indie Laser
El Holland from Rock n Wrap

It's at St Augustine's Church Hall, Racecourse Road, Hamilton from 10am. It should be a hoot and you can register here. If you like I'll take some notes and blog about the session later for you :)

Speaking of hoots (sorry, couldn't resist), Brown Owls follows straight on from the info session at 1pm (same venue) and we'll be making the cutest little macramé owl brooches with marketing mastermind Sarah Rossiter (of previous BrisStyle info session fame). You can rsvp on the Brown Owls blog and if you're not yet a member just shoot an email to and ask for more info!

Hope to see you there!

i like you, let's share

InstaWHAT!?! It's true I've been hiding in a cave when it comes to discovering the funnest and coolest and most time wasting app eva! Instagram is totally my new love and keeps me well occupied while waiting for coffee, on public transport or when peeps are running late (oh, hang on that's me, teehee).
This is my niece doing her best bird beak impersonation (try it for yourself, I have and I just can't do it, she's so talented) and you can find me on Instagram under edwardandlilly.

Are you on it? Let me know if you are, oh and if you have any sweet insta-tips, leave me a comment!
