Packages Tied Up With String ....

Don't you just love getting something in the mail? I know I do.
I was lucky enough to receive this beautiful cushion by Me and Amber in the mail yesterday. It was from my lovely friend Michelle over at Sprout Gallery.
I just adore it!!!
Thanks lovely lady!

If you aren't familiar with Me and Amber check out their store on Bluecaravan. Enjoy!
Have a great weekend everyone.

from here

Sorry for my absence - I usually post a Wednesday Wicked Design today but I have been listing things to sell on ebay ....... and it has taken ALL DAY!!!!

We are doing a bit of a clear out as we may go on the market soon.

As time has gotten away I will have to miss my usual post today - sorry to those of you who regularly check in for a new designer.

Must admit I have been a little slack all round lately with preparing my house etc. Must get back onto visiting you all soon. Thanks for sticking with me through my slackness!!

Wednesday Wicked Design

I just love finding these wonderfully talented designers!

Kathy Panton is a local illustrator who sells her prints via her etsy store. She has so many wonderful artworks it was really hard for me to narrow them down and show you my favourites. I just adore all the colours ...

Aqua Ampersand Print

The Original Butterfly Print

You are my Sunshine Print (with birds)

Hot Air Balloons Print

Little Elephant Print

At the moment you can purchase any 3 of Kathy's prints for $40.00 and any 4 prints for $50.00! She posts to any destination in the world.

She also sells cards featuring her beautiful illustrations ....

Set of 6 Handmade Cards

Kathy also has a blog so pop on over and say hi if you get some time - I know she would love to hear from you.
Don't forget to check out her online store.

At The Races

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We went to the races of Saturday and had a really great day - I had a win ..... $3.30 after betting $1 on the nose! Oh yes, and the buzz did go to my head (or was that the bubbly?) it was all downhill from there I'm afraid - all up coming home I think I was down $6 - still it's the fun of it isn't it!!!!

It was a welcome break from the last jobs we are trying to finish on our reno. Yes, we are so very close to being finished now, just a few painting jobs to be done. Then apparently we can sit back and relax ...... do you think I could really do that?
You never know what the future may hold ...

Here's to a week of lovely blue skies.

And the Winner is ....

If you have just had school holidays, I hope you had a great break with the kids!
Our holiday was pretty mad - we stayed home but seemed to always be busy, busy, busy!

Today I am happy to announce that has selected Felicity from Gifts of Serendipity as the winner of my Butterfly Paper Art giveaway!!! Felicity has a beautiful blog that she fills with everything that gives her pleasure. It's always a great read, and I know she would love it if you popped over and said hi.

Congratulations Felicity, I hope you enjoy making your artwork - I'd love to see what you do with it.

It's a beautiful warm sunny day here in Brisbane today - I hope where ever you are you are getting a little sunshine too.
