getting ready

About a hundred cards to fold, fit with an envelope and seal in a cello bag. At least 20 brooches to finish and more to make... It must be market time.

Lovely friends!

I have a lovely friend called Tiina who is super stylish and shares a love of Marimekko and Camper shoes. She also happens to have one of my brooches which she wears very very well. So here's the story. She was wearing it at work the other day and received so many comments that she thought she'd take some of mine in. And she sold 10 brooches in a morning!

These two are among the only ones left....

Thanks Tiina!

Canberra Handmade this weekend

It's all mad mad mad making at the moment for Canberra Handmade this weekend. I have a big collection of scrabble pictures, including some new phrases plus I'll be taking lots of vintage map and car pictures with me.

If you're in Canberra pop in to the market - it's a gorgeous collection of handmade treasures.
