My Creative Space

Lots has been going on in my creative space this week. Lots of cleaning up.... then making a big mess! I'm continuing to make brooches. Yesterday I created 2 vases of flowers. Just trying to create something new and different!
I found all these buttons that in a previous life were going to be rings. I sat down during the week and turned them into brooches
So it's been a brooch crazy week!

New Items

Over the weekend I was busy making a few new items. These will be listed on Madeit over the next few days. Remember you can always contact me for custom orders.

Like what I make? become a liker on facebook. I'm moving and will be having a supplies sale in the coming weeks (ring blanks, fabric grab bags, buttons, beads etc)
A button headband. My first button headband sold in the first few days after I listed it on Madeit. This one is in pinks!

I love these big buttons. I turned a couple into brooches.

I recreated a popular brooch. I wasn't able to find the right coloured felt. I found this fabric, played around with it. A big afternoon of trial and error... eventually I got it looking how I wanted.

My Creative Space

My creative space has gone poodle mad. I'm mixing felt and fabric, colours and styles. Some will get turned into brooches other headbands and other creative items. The fabulous Skye is wearing her poodle brooch today and she's getting lots of comments!!
I picked up these from the Op Shop today. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them... but I had to have them!

Eames Chairs

Today was the day or adding new items to my madeit store. Last night I expanded my Eames Chair Brooch range with a new style and new colours. Feeling even more motivated I finally ordered business cards (something I should've done when I first started).

I'm hoping to reach a target of 100 madeit sales soon... so come on friends and family (you know who you are.... (looking straight at my brother, I'm sure his wife would love something handmade))

Green Day Out

On Sunday Scott and I went to Green Day Out. Promoting all things good for the environment - there was yummy food, lots of people, handmade items (even met a fellow madeit seller Gravity accessories) and entertainment all on the beach.

The spring roll went very quickly... this is scott pulling it away from me. We also ate a samsoa and pakora... can someone say Deep Fried Goodness!!!
I have to stop writing this as it's making me hungry.

June 2010

In the month of June I'm going to donate 10% of all my profits from my store on Madeit to Mel's Fund a Cure.

Mel is a mate from school who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
From her facebook page
Hi guys, not sure if you are aware but Mel recently got advised that she needs more treatment and if she is too be cured rather than treated pallitively she does not have standard chemo as an option. The drug needed is not covered by PBS for ovarian and costs $2,500 every 3 weeks, some women have had to stay on it for years. Or the better option is a clinic in America which offers this drug with a hope for cure and cost about $15,000 every month for 12 months. obviously plus air fares, accommodation, food etc.

Fundraisers have been organised but the target is still a long way away.... so every $ counts so I'm doing my bit.
Become a "liker" on facebook and show your support.
Mel is currently in hospital and her birthday is in 9 days. So lets make June a terrific month!
