and the countdown begins...

wow! there are only around 17 days until perth upmarket and I have been working hard! Last night I finished filling up my badge displays all done! although, I will probably make some extra just in case....I have just finished making four more new canvas there are only magnets, christmas tags and a few more canvas prints left to go!!!

here is a peek at a new print (complete with my shadow!), I am really loving this one at the moment (if I can say that) it reminds me of back when everyone seemed to have a set of flying ceramic ducks up on their kitchen/dining wall! I think this is the modern version I would love to see these guys made from ceramics hanging up in my lounge room one day...I guess the print will have to do for now.

I have also put together a few new prints, you can expect....robots (yes, I have made them somewhat girlie but still boyish enough for the males!), more birds, some cute elephants, a couple more in the series of rosie, some retro mamma's and the others you will just have to wait to see!

making friends at the Post Office....

So, I am thinking that people at the post office are either beginning to like me as a regular or are saying 'not her again, how much mail does she have to post? can't she buy all of her parcel bags at once?' I am hoping for the first scenario!

I have had a few etsy sales this week, hence the post office comments! I got a bit done yesterday for Perth upmarket and I still have plenty to do :) I also managed to find sometime to add in a few new designs (mostly birds! and also some cute retro-looking ladies. All will be revealed soon.....

Also, on the weekend I went down to made on the left at the hyde park, it was a great showing, so many cute things I really like Hurrah, amazing cute little animals and things. I am super excited about perth upmarket yay!!!

I also sent out a bit of an email about what I have been up to with champ + rosie, thank you for all of your nice comments :)

On the way...

It has been a tiny while since my last post, but its been busy, busy, busy! trimming, designing, printing, driving, packaging, searching, buying, hand-pressing...I think this sums it all up. I have added in a few new designs to the badges as you can see below, along with the start of some Christmas themed things! cute little gift tags with Christmas badges in slightly retro colours (I am not so much a fan of the traditional gold Christmas...) attached to some really nice uncoated, textured heavy card. All available via my little etsy store! keep an eye for the growing range...
