My Creative Space

I've been farting around with Illustrator again..... This fabric is for a contest on Spoonflower for an upcoming theme of candles, surprisingly. If you have not been to the Spoonflower website, you really must ! Firstly, you have to vote in the fabric contest, and you have to vote for me , and secondly it is the best thing since sliced bread. you can upload pretty much any image and have it printed on fabric digitally, and you can get as much or as little as you want. I'm sure you are all spoonflower groupies already but if not you will find it here . In other groundbreaking news I did my first market.....
Yes it was nearly 3 weeks ago, but since I am a relaxed kind of blogger I am only just getting my report together now. It was fun to be with the lovely Tilly for the day, and to meet some great people, including Tania of Myrtle and Eunice who was selling cuter stuff than mine right next to me!! I need to set up next to someone with poxy things next time. The market was fairly quiet, but a good experience given that I have no experience at all in these matters...thankfully a few friends came to say hi and buy some of my bits and pieces. Where would we be without buddies who buy all our crap and say it looks nice?

Lastly on the week-end, my niece Daisy threw a big 3 year old party, with a bit of support from Mum and Dad, and her evil auntie (me) forgot her camera. My sister always whips up some seriously gorgeous decorated cookies and cakes, but unfortunately you will never see them as they were un photographed. I really must get a little camera instead of the big monster I have now, although I have only just worked out how to use it after 2 years so it would be a bummer to have to start again. Anyway, it was a great week-end in Melbourne with my family, and great to meet some of my sister's new school mum mates including Janet...Hi Janet!
Happy Birthday to my fabulous Daisy, and happy crafting to everyone else!!!


  1. i love the 'set up next to someone poxy' - that is just too funny....

    Thanks for the spoonflower tip - let me guess, another place for me to spend my moolah?!

  2. Hey thanks for putting my name in print, beats seeing my bum on the net. Thanks also for the spoon flower link, my gawd what a great idea, and I did give you my vote - hope you win. I think you need to put up another shot of Daisy, that one is not her best and she's such a little cutie. Twas nice to meet you and see you in cyber space. cheers Janet
