Shop Update

I have uploaded a few more brooches to my etsy shop, including this new design made from linen and a vintage hanky which you can find here.

I seem to be drawn to vintage hankies at the moment - unused of course.

Not With The Good Scissors!

My favourite pair of earrings at the moment are the good scissors earrings from Melbourne gal Victoria Mason.

It's important to know that the good scissors are for fabric only and anyone who uses them on anything else is bound to get in a whole lot of trouble. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Monster Goodness

Yay! I was lucky enough to win a giveaway from Emma at Benconservato. The prize was a colouring book and a couple of postcards.

The colouring book is called Monsters Behaving Badly. I love it! It's fun and full of playful monsters.

You would expect at my age (over 30) that I left my colouring in days behind me years ago but there is something about the colourless pages that are begging me to colour them in. That's exactly what I plan on doing too just as soon as I get myself some crayons.

Getting Sorted for the New Year

Inspired by a blog post titled "Five easy ways to get organised!" over at Retro Age Vintage Fabrics, I decided to buy the book Sorted by Lissanne Oliver and have a go at organising myself.

I think it's a great way to start the new year, getting organised and clearing out clutter to make space for the new, including new ideas and new creativity. I love the idea of having life running more efficiently so I don't get bogged down in so much stuff.

Since I am currently drowning in paper I have started in the study. The plan is to do a little at a time and eventually get to my workroom. Wish me luck.

Oh and did I mention that I bought a copy of the book at the Camberwell markets for $3? Well I did. How's that for a bargain?
