Are you fellow Aussies looking forward to Australia Day tomorrow? I can't wait for a day off.  You may have also heard along the etsy grapevine that there is a big combined Australian Teams Sale starting tomorrow especially for the day!  Yep, I'm participating as part of the Sydney Team, and you can stock up on lots of other lovelies too!  More info tomorrow, and you can also read about it here.

Love this vintage...

Canvas tote from Trampoline on etsy.  So cool.  I would do all my shopping in this baby.

My creative space.

Note to self:  Never make the mistake of using lovely soft wool blend felt on a doll this cute instead of 100% wool.

You may remember my version of Hop Skip Jump's Poppy Doll I wrote about back in March last year.

Poppy was so well received and loved by her recipient (my niece) that the poor thing went completely bald over the back of her head, and ended up decapitated after 6 months or so.  That's right, she wore down the felt to the scalp!  Poor Poppy.

 Poppy came for a secret "sleep over" to my place, and came away with new hair, a new do, new stuffing, head back on and a new party dress to add to her collection of frocks.   I like the new do, and there are instructions on how to do it are here.

Creative spaces have kicked off again for the year!  See many more talented peeps here.

Hello 2011

Hi there!  It's been a nice break from these parts for a month or so, and I'm back and ready to face 2011 (I think).  I hope your Christmas and New Year was great, although I know for many the New Year has brought with it events that are the stuff of nightmares.   Thanks to a wonderful crafting community, there is so much going on to help out with the Queensland floods and you can participate too, here, herehere or here.

On another note, I've been busy over the break - entertaining, partying, working at my other job and also making quite a few new shop items.

Lots of baby gifts have been heading out of my place too (it's baby season!) and here is one that I sent off a couple of weeks back to a lovely friend, unfortunately a very belated gift it was.


I hope the new year finds all of you safe and well.  See you here again shortly!
