Productive mornings are so much more satisfying than sleeping in!

The most amazing thing happened last night. We were at a Crayon Fields gig and in between two songs the drummer said, out of the blue, 'guinea pigs are the best animals in the world' - um, was that directed straight at me because my goodness, my thoughts exactly!

Getting this link sent to me from my sister

totally made my day, no maybe make that

my week! 

It's a video that her friends Sophia and Emma 

made and entered into a competition that 

they're now in the finals for.. Check out more 

of Sophia's stuff on Youtube, she is one 

seriously talented lady! Lizzy's the cabbage 

(you'll see what I mean) - I think it's the 

proudest I've ever been of her 

and incidentally she looks really good 

as a cabbage! 

p.s. as you can tell I'm not too good with 

technology and the screen has ended up

a bit squashed, just watch it at full screen!

Melbourne.. how ever did you find out that I am completely obsessed with lampshades? And would scream with joy upon seeing them installed in public like this? We must be made for each other..

CRAFT HATCH!! (I love you!)

What a fantastic day! I am so incredibly happy with how my stall looked, all my cardboard bits and pieces (please note that even the business card holder is made from cardboard!), the venue, EVERYTHING!

Ah cake stand.. not even the fact that you were continously toppling over all day could make me love you any less! Please also note in the background the awesome (sorry to brag, I am just quite proud!) boxes I made to put the strings of coloured lights in.. yay!

A bit of blatant self promotion never hurt anyone so I thought I'd give it a whirl.. I printed out the fantastic article on me and my knitting that featured in the latest NO and even had people reading the whole thing..

I think this cake stand may just be my proudest moment! I spent 3 hours on Saturday constructing it as part of my 'I really need to put more effort into my presentation at markets' scheme.. I think it may also be the best use of IKEA cardboard ever..

Even my usual brooches got a bit of a revamp, finally decided on a suitable backing for them.. I think I have a slight obsession with cardboard! I also decided to drop my prices for Craft Hatch, and though it may seem ridiculous I am totally happy with my decision.

Spotted this on the way to market last Saturday, I think it's pretty rad..

Yay! A new idea for market stalls!
