My Creative Space

Happily ensconced in my creative space this morning, while my husband has taken the girls to see their grandparents, I have been working on some new designs.

With next month officially being breast cancer awareness month I decided to play around with some hot pink ink! This this is the result ....

Many who have purchased my tags are using them to embellish household objects. These tags are tied around a couple of my medicine jars. I am lucky enough to have a collection of these that I purchased many years ago for $2 each (I know) - no one wanted them back then!

Each tag is made from story books dating from the 1960's.

I have even placed one on my birdcage - which I also purchased a couple of years back from the Paddington Antique Centre in Brisbane. I had lots of fun playing around with a bit of colour for a change.

The other project I have been working on this morning is my growing card collection. Each hand stamped card is blank inside and packaged with a white envelope. I will also be embellishing some of these with stamps from my 1960's collection. I'm really excited about this range.

Both of these ranges, along with many of my other art and stationery items will be available at the Brisbane Indie Mother and Child market (BIMC) - held in Racecourse Road, Hamilton. The dates for the BIMC markets are below - I'm super excited to be joining the many talented people at the BrisStyle market events here in Brisbane. You will be hearing a lot more from me about this market as the date gets closer. If you are planning on being in Brisbane on the weekend of the 9th October I would love to meet you - so please stop by my stand and say hi!

Hope you are all happily ensconced in your favourite pastime this weekend. Michelle
