I had big plans for my stall at Maribyrnong Makers Market the weekend, but there are just not enough hours in the day to achieve everything I want to do, so unfortunately I've had to pull out.

Of course that means that I have lots of stock to sell online instead.

I have lots of lovely and completely unique Santa Sacks available via my Facebook Page. Theyre an original CurlyPops design printed onto a lovely cotton/linen blend. They're fully lined with cotton drill and have a drawstring closure.

If youd like one just pop on over to FB and comment!

Thankyou Brissie, Thankyou Finders Keepers, Thankyou Yardage Design

Photo pinched from Anna

Well what a whirlwind of a weekend..... and in the blink of an eye it's all over!

I headed to Brissy on Friday and Nic organised a lovely dinner in the city with Jennie, Selina, Kylie, Steph and Anna. It was a great night - plenty of laughs and delicious food overlooking the river, with such great group of girls!

It was an early start on Saturday morning to get everything set up for Finders Keepers. I dragged around 50kgs of luggage to Brissy and Nic was the organiser extraordinaire, desigining and setting up my stall with her props. I could never have even imagined doing this without her help!

In extremely unfortunate timing, my phone decided to completely fritz itself, and so I have hardly any photos. All of these lovely photos are courtest of Nic.

My favourite part of the weekend was meeting so many lovely bloggers / crafters / instagrammers. Everyone was so welcoming and so helpful.

If there was a prize for the most colourful stall, I would have won hands down!

If there's anything you see that you like, most things are in the online shop, but I'm aiming to add more as the week goes by (I arrived home after midnight lastnight and had to go straight back to the day job thismorning so I haven't gotten around to that yet)..

 Thankyou to Helen from Brisstyle for this lovely photo of Nic and I (I may have been a bit delerious at the time)

I received so many lovely goodies - a brooch and a care package from Jennie, and a gorgeous pincushion and pins from Caroline. I also bought a couple of things and swapped a couple of things which I'll have to blog later on.

I have to give a huge shoutout and thankyou to Nic - she worked tirelessly all weekend and helped me with absolutely everything. Next time, I visit, it'll be a holiday and we can go and do something relaxing!

For all the Brissie peeps - make sure to visit Nic at the upcoming GOMA Christmas Design market

Conversations With Creative Women

It's the big launch night this Friday!

I'm over on the Creative Womens Circle blog today with a little interview about my title page design for Dawn Tan.

I'll be winging my way to Brissy for Finders Keepers so I'm not going to make it to the launch...

But I can't wait for my pre-ordered copy to arrive in the mail! It'll be the first time that one of my designs has appeared in a real life book - so exciting!!!
