Because it's taken me so long I'm offering 10% off my store today to say thankyou to all my lovely customers and supporters
I love a good giveaway and wish I could give something to everyone so I'm giving away 4 prizes to 4 different people.
Thankyou and good luck!!
Last night Scott and I drove to Wynnum for "Wynnum up late"
We shopped, had coffee, listened to music and I bought this lovely brooch from "Off the Hook" (of course it's red!!)
I visited the collective store and saw some gorgeous handmade items. Will have to go back when it isn't so busy and have a good look.
What's your latest handmade purchase?
I loved Wellington. I had an expectation that it was going to be very cold. The weather was beautiful most days, the sun shined but when the wind started it was cold!! I love wearing coats, scarfs and beanies (something I don't do much in Brisbane).
Wellington is a small city that has a lot of coffee shops. We spent most of our time discovering new cafes and eating food.
Armed with new fabrics we were motivated (mum more so than me).
So many new embellishments were designed and created. Some have been added to my craftumi store for sale.
I've been spending a lot of time improving my product photos. Can you tell?
And I'm so excited to show you the new colours our doilies come in. So pretty, I think the teal oines are my favourite!!
I've also been sorting out my craft space. Well not so much cleaning as making a bigger mess.
I had a spare bed in the room. We decided this week to remove the bed and give me more space. Photos coming next week.
So more cleaning, sorting and organising for me.
More spaces here
"I bought this poppy from you last year. We are currently living in Munich and we were lucky enough to go over to France for the Anzac Day Dawn Service in Villers Bretonneux. I wore my poppy with pride. I'm a little late in posting this pic for you, but better late than never, as they say, and I promised you when I bought it that I would send you a pic! Thank you for making it for me"
It's photos and comments like this that make my day. It's great to see some of my handmade items living overseas.
I can't imagine me ever saying that running is me time. I can't even remember the last time I ran.
I also spent a lot of time today photographing and listing items on craftumi.
