My creative space...

In my creative space this week i have finally pulled my finger out and opened the shop again and listed these guys for easter.....

They're all in the shop waiting to be adopted out to a new home. Though it does mean that little miss will have to part with them as she seems to have already adopted them all herself...

I'm on a roll so look for more items soon...

Pop over here for more creative spaces

New stockists....

Been busy this week making and packing a large card order for my new and first interstate stockists Lush Creations.

I am so excited to be working with Amy so if you get a chance, head on over to their site and have a look around or if you live locally to Hilton, WA pop into their shop!

On a different note, it must be getting ready for wedding season because i now have three clients all getting married on the same day! I have been terrible at remembering to photograph my samples before i send them out (can i claim pregnant brain?!), but this time i managed to snap a few, this sample hot off the craft desk and heading out to a lovely bride-to-be...

My Creative Space.....

i can't even tell you how long it has been since i cracked out the guillotine and filled the studio with lots of yummy colourful paper scraps - way to long. With card stocks dwindling im trying to do a few nights a week in the studio cranking out some new cards. Trying to stock up before i get too pregnant to want to move (only 14 weeks to go people!). Already got the serious baby belly thing going on - the muscles aren't quite as strong by number 3! And still driving the hubby nuts by asking him to move half the furniture in the house around for me..... hehe

So anyway, in my space today im playing with some lovely girlie prints like these....

Watch this space for some new designs! More creative peeps HERE.

Friday Goodies...

I was up with the birds this morning with a list a mile long of things to do before i had to leave the house. Little Miss and i planned on heading up to Handmade Heaven for a visit and to re-stock my little space. Though i knew that i had a do some photographing of my new clutches in order to finally re-list some goodies in the made-it shop before we left. And for me this can be quite a process! I do struggle to take pics that i am happy with, especially for my shop. I never feel like the pictures do them justice....

BUT who knew that 6am light can be so complimentary?!! and with minimal editing too! I think this is how i will take my photos from now on!

Time permitting, these will be in the shop in the next few days....

I did have a little browse around while visiting Liesa and came across these delightful notepads from Journal Addiction which somehow jumped into my shopping basket.

Have i ever mentioned that i have a slight stationary addiction??! Mr JK just shakes his head now - but he lets me keep them :)

(and never sends me off alone to officeworks!)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend ahead, Thanks for stopping by!

My Creative Space.....

Lot of crafty goodness happening in my creative space this week.

A friend from school just had a beautiful little baby girl. After drooling over these exquisite baby shoes i wanted to attempt to make some myself Joyfolie style. So i went searching for a pattern for 'Mary-Jane' style booties and found a fabulous tutorial here.

And this is what i came up with

Maybe not exactly Joyfolie standard, though i was pleased with my first attempt. I think when i make them again i will make the straps a little thinner perhaps?

They look quite cute in this Amy Bulter fabric, I hope she likes them!

So today im working on a burping cloth/bib in co-ordinating fabric to make a little gift set. Then it's off for coffee with the ladies tomorrow for a chin wag and lots of baby cuddles (HA, cluckie much?!)....

In other projects i sat up to the wee hours of the morning (the only spare time i get at the moment!) the other night cutting and ironing and then sewing up a heap of new clutches for Handmade Heaven. They have proved popular and my little space is looking a little dismal so these will be heading up to Liesa to fill my space with some more stock and a little colour...

So im working on the last little bit of hand stitching with these ones. Cluttches today, new card designs tomorrow.

Lets hope i get it all done! More creatives spaces HERE
