Time for some inspiration!

I was pleasantly suprised this week to find the latest issue of MixTape in my mailbox! I first heard of MixTape a few months back, and signed up for an annual subscription. It's basically an Australian craft magazine that profiles real Aussie artists, it has a small but delicious recipe section, some music and book reviews, some tutorials, and so much more!

So what did I love about this issue? Well there is an interview with Rachel Power, the Melbourne based author of The Divided Heart - Art and Motherhood. It sounds like a really interesting book which talks about an issue that I struggle with daily! It just may have to go on my christmas wish list!!

There was also an interesting article where Angela D'Alton talks about the top 5 reasons to Twitter. She makes some very compelling arguments. It's just that with a blog, maybe a website, a facebook fan page perhaps, and twitter.... there is so much you can do outside the realm of actually creating. However, 'tweeeting' probably doesn't take long to do. Some food for thought...

Anyway, I highly recommend MixTape if you are interested in Australian Craft! I am sure I will be contantly re-reading this issue, until the next one comes out in Feb!

To Market, To Market... for the very first time!

Well I just got the wonderful news today that I will definately have a stand at the Epping Twilight Markets!! I am very excited. This will be my first market - I am keen for the public to see my goods! And to start having a physical presence on the creative, homemade scene.

The Epping Twilight Markets are a great little local market, with loads of fresh produce, and gourmet food and gifts. The Chinese DimSum King, and Jackie M Malaysian Cuisine are among my favorites for an easy Friday night dinner!

So, if you happen to be in the area, come along and say hello! The market will be held on Friday Dec 11th from 5pm-9pm in the grounds of Our Lady Help of Christians School - 29 Oxford St, Epping NSW. As it will be my first market, everything will be on sale!! So come along and grab a christmas bargain!

Hat Mania!

Well, the heatwave of this past weekend has inspired to make hats! Most of them are in beautiful bright colours. I just love them. If only I could get my daughter to keep one on her head. Yes, that's right, she has learned to pull it off! Looks like we're sticking with the sunscreen!

Anyway, if you like any of the hats, please visit the buttons to the right for my stores at either madeit or etsy  :)

Fairy Floss Mini Quilts!

Recently we have had two special little girls born into our circle of friends. I wanted to make them something special, and decided that a mini quilt would be perfect. I looked through my stash, and picked out my favorite fabrics. I was trying to steer clear of the typical 'pink' colours... and then I thought why? They ARE girls, let's embrace it! So the name fairy floss mini quilt is because the fabrics of the quilts are deliciously sweet!

Here is a picture of little Estella enjoying her new quilt! I decided to put Hannah and Estella's initials in the bottom corner of each quilt, and I think that's the perfect way to finish it off!

While I was making these, I decided to make up a few extras, and they will be for sale on etsy and madeit soon! They are the perfect personalized gift for a newborn girl - for laying and playing on, and are also the ideal size for the pram and car seat!
