Be Part of the Súnas ABC DVD!

This weekend, we're going to be performing two special live shows of our new material that will be on the new album. These concerts will be filmed and released as a DVD along with the record so, in the tradition of all good game shows, here's your chance to be in the audience! If you're in town, wear a loud shirt, some fantastic trousers, scream, clap and become a part of something special.

Saturday 23 Oct from 5-6pm
Sunday 24 Oct from 2-3pm

ABC Ferry Road Studios
53 Ferry Road, West End (Off Montague Rd on the river)
This is utterly free (and alcohol free too, sorry). All ages, easy parking.

A tiny disclaimer: These aren't concerts as such. We're going to be playing about an hour's worth of new material, it will be recorded live and filmed professionally so there may well be a lot of starting and stopping to get things right (especially Mannie's hair and Paul’s smile).

October 18th

I was busy on Saturday cooking up some new flowers using an old GemmaJoy style. I seem to get carried away with a style and forgot about other styles. So anyway if you read this blog you may remember these flowers. Soft and sculpted in a few new colours.
These flowers are being made into brooches and I have a few smaller ones that are being turned into headbands.

I will be taking a creating break (bread and butter job is getting in the way) so these will be the last of these made for a little while.
These will be added to Madeit over the next couple of days
On another note, it's my birthday today!!! So to celebrate I'm offering Free Shipping on all items on GemmaJoy (October 18th only)
(Money will be refunded after payment... because it takes too long to individually change each listing).
Have a great Monday!!!!

October 6th

Today I'm sharing from product photos.
Last month I was busy creating the "perfect" photo for some advertising.
Well what a hard job it was.
Mum and I played with backgrounds, lighting, colour combos etc and it didn't take long before I was over the flowers and started taking photos of the cats.
Here are some of the photos that didn't make the cut.
Have you entered my giveaway yet????

October 3rd. Custom orders and experiments

October 3rd and it's an overcast rainy day in Brisbane.
I'm excited to say that I've finished a custom order of 18 wedding favour flowers.
I was contacted a few months ago about this order, and I was super excited. I was found on Madeit (at a time when sales were slow). So madeit is worth it crafters!!!
I sent a trial and it was loved!!
The colours have been selected to suit the individual tastes of the women attending the wedding.

Last night I also played around with some new ideas for my camper van/trailers. Made from fabric on circles and camper on its own. I think the circles are too small, but I was too eager to take the time to make bigger circles. Still in the design phase - please let me know what you think!!

I have more orders to work on today. So I better get back to it.

1st October

It's day one of blogtoberfest!
I had lunch today with 2 of my gorgeous friends. One lives in Darwin and the other in Hong Kong. And where did we go..... a bakery! It turns out they were both missing the good old Aussie Meat Pie!!
I met my friends 5 month old baby girl. Had lots of cuddles and giggles.
I loved spending the first of October with friends.
Blog posts with photos coming soon, I promise.
Scott also has a cold... :(
