A little find & My Creative Space(plus Kraftbomb this weekend!)

Thursday, June 24, 2010

I went out the other day to find some more zips so that I could finish some more zipper purses for Kraftbomb this weekend (they sold like hot cakes last month!) and I found these gorgeous trims along my travels! The little fawns are embroidered onto some old linen it looks like, I've made them into iron on patches that I will be selling and put one of them onto this sweet make-up bag that I'm in the process of making.

I'll be having a little sale on my wall art and I'll be armed with a portable Eftpos machine! Thanks to my friend, Belinda, so great for those that don't like to carry around wads of cash (although, you would feel like Scrooge McDuck...) for those of you that don't know, Kraftbomb is this Sunday 27th June at the Grey Lynn Community Centre, 510 Richmond Road, Grey Lynn.

See you on Sunday!

Well, today is my birthday. I'm feeling a little like I'm on the wrong side of my 20's and life shouldn't really be like this when you are so close to 30, you should have your sh*t together, know what is going on with your life and maybe even have a house of your own. Don't get me wrong, I love my life right now and am very happy — I love being a Mum, a Graphic Designer and a business owner and being able to make stuff all the time and work with so many inspirational people, that is awesome and is something I'll never want to trade.

I was going to a do a tutorial for you all, but I couldn't think of anything! I'll put my thinking cap on and do one in the next week or so, it will most likely be a recipe for something delicious.

In the meantime, I found these photo's of me when I was wee, excuse the poor quality and stains on the photo's they have been around a while — I love the one of me with my parents, my Mum just looks so amazing and my Dads hat is awesome (even if he does look a little like he wants to be a Bee Gee, I think he did actually....)

Left: I think I was 2 or 3 in this photo, I still have that Miffy counting book! Right: Me at 6 months with my Ma and Pa somewhere fancy for lunch I'm told.
And just for something a little different, this is my favourite song at the moment which I thought that I would share — LOVE it — it's been on repeat and rather loud while I'm working today.

And I just discovered Karen Elson — scratching another itch I have on the other side of my personality, such a good song, just don't listen to the lyrics too much — a little weird and depressing...

Right, I think that's enough of a post about me! I'm off to get back to work and maybe bake myself a cake....

Happy Birthday to my Mum xx (say it with Lemurs)

Saturday, June 5, 2010

It was my Mum's birthday on the 3rd of June. Now, like many people, I love my Mum and I was trying for ages to think of something that would be awesome enough for such a great lady. So I called up my friend Laura who is a keeper at Auckland Zoo for a big favour, and this was my present to my Mum...

Such an awesome day!
