It's that time again! Kraftbomb, Aucklands most awesome and radness filled market is happening this SUNDAY! Brimming with crafty goodness, you will find loads of great vendors and it's always a nice day out.

There is always someone new doing their very first Kraftbomb so it pays to check it out, then when they are HUGELY famous, you can be all coy and be "yeah, I have one of the orginal pieces they made" and all your friends will be "oooooh, no way! That's so cool!!"....... umm, yeah, maybe not but you get the drift.... just come!

P.S I'm pretty much over my flu, thanks for all the nice messages that you've sent me! It's been really rotten, and I know it's snagged plenty of people, so hooray for health!


Just a wee update

Thursday, July 16, 2009

Hey Everyone!

So I figured out that I probably shouldn't write a blog post about what I am going to blog about, it gets forgotten about and other blog posts just push it to the bottom never to be seen again!

Well, if you follow me on Twitter, you'll know that I am super sick at the moment with a nasty dose of flu! Not much fun I'll have you know. Feeling very lousy while having to look after the little one as she is also sick with a cold. Just trying to rest and take it easy so that I can get better, especially as there is a lot happening in the next few weeks.

How crazy has this week been with me and Treasuries! I was in some excellent company, including Black Swan Designs and Birdspoke - check out the below posts for details...

So I've been accepted into the next Kraftbomb! Woohoo! It will be nice to head along and see everyone again. The last one was pretty quiet, but I blame that on the torrential rain! It was really bad. Do come along, you can get your Christmas shopping out of the way without having to battle everyone! As always, Sunday 26th July from 11am until 2pm at the Grey Lynn Community Centre on Richmond Rd

I had Bronwyn (AKA R.W.Scissors) come over this week for her first crochet lesson! She did really well, and it was fun to teach someone too. I've only been doing crochet since about Febuary/March this year, after my patient Nana (at the age of 87) and good friend Jana taught me, so it's nice to pass on the skills. At the moment I am attempting to make a pair of fingerless gloves (pictured ones aren't mine, mine aren't quite finishes yet!) if you'd like to have a go, the pattern is free from the Lion Brand Yarn website.

I've also been busy last week (well, I started, getting sick sort of got in the way) making a few new items for my line of wall embellishments, I now have a gorgeous 'Curious Owl' and a 'Nutty Squirrel' to add to the fold. I'll have to pop up some photo's soon...

Ok, it's late and I need sleep so I can blog again soon! Now go and try that pattern and make yourself some cosy mits for Winter

psst...cheeky sale on Etsy...

Thursday, July 2, 2009

I'm still under my rock, working like mad, but I've also decided to have a 15% off sale on a lucky few items on my Etsy store, quick though! It's only for 7 days...


I am just hiding under this rock...

Wednesday, July 1, 2009

Just so you know, I'm going to have a little hide under my rock for a while and bash out some Uni work. Uni at the moment it just getting a little crazy, our last Illustrator project is this week, and we have our summitive next week. I've been doing a little bit of research and will hopefully be all good, but I just need to put my head down, bum up, focus, focus, focus and draw about a million thumbnails (ugghhh). So apologies in advance for being a bit of a snob for the next couple of weeks.

Don't forget that this weekend is also The Devonport Craft Market on the shore-side. If you can, it would be great to have you come along and check it out. For more information, visit The Devonport Craftmarket blog. Come and say hi!

So when I finally have a little breather, I'll be posting....

  • Photo's and the low down on June Kraftbomb
  • My Illustrator projects; beer label, self promotional CD, packaging summitive (pressure!!)
  • Devonport Market photo's and the low down
  • General happiness from my little corner
P.S: Got my marks back for the Photoshop summitive and I got a B for the design and some really fantastic positive feedback!! Hurrah!!

Keep it crafty my lovelies xxx
