Shopping on madeit is a great way to support local designers & crafters and sellers can gain exposure and sell their wares all day every day and to every corner of Australia and the world.

Have you heard of Madeit?

A few words from the founder Bec Davies

Who is the founder of
Madeit was founded by myself and my partner Jayc in July 2007. I studied photography after high school, worked in the field then move to London and returned to study graphic design. I’m a thirty something handmade lover. I love going to the markets, I’m addicted to the internet, I love to create, bake & garden.

When did madeit start?
Madeit first started out as a directory of my favourite independent sellers in late 2006. Evidence of the array of talent in Australia led me to launch an affordable e-commerce store solely for handmade goods. The online shop opened in mid 2007.

What was your inspiration for madeit?
As a photographer, graphic designer, crafter and market seller I have always been interested in all things handmade & independent. I love buying unique, small run, handmade goodies. I wanted a place on the internet where all these things were in one place. Hence why I started the directory, a google search for independent designers in 2006 was like finding a needle in a haystack and at that time there were no simple directories that listed independent designers.

As the directory grew we thought it was time to take the next step and open the shop. We have been overwhelmed by the amount of talent in Australia and madeit is solely about showing this talent to Australia and a broad.

Yesterday I got a call from my mum telling me to have a look at an Etsy shop.


In her shop you will find button rings in many shapes and sizes. All rings are made with Sterling Silver wire and have anywhere between one and three buttons.

One of these rings could make a perfect gift..... hint hint


Just thought I would share some funky trees I made today.
These are going to made into brooches.
What have you made today?

For the first time...

For the first time in my life I have seen my dad without a Mo.

Ignore the terrible photo, he's worse than a small child when it comes to having his photo taken.
It's for Movember and it's already growing back. It may be the only time I see him without it so I thought it was worth a blog post.

Hiding the mess

Things have been crazy around here. In the last few weeks I've managed to dragged Scott to Ikea, Kmart and dress shopping!
I'm happy to say I have a new desk, and my dining table is clear from my craft supplies!!!
For the first time I'm coming home from work and I'm happy to create in the spare room.
Here are some pics of what I made this afternoon! I've added them to a sale album on facebook. You can buy them for a low price of $5 from here
