Modish & Friends this weekend!

Well, if one market was not enough next weekend, I've just found out I'll be doing another!
The Friends Who Make Things Market is run out of a lovely lady's backyard in Brunswick.
It's on Sunday the 5th, 12-4pm at 21 Dunstan Avenue, Brunswick.
Yes! It really is in a backyard! I hope Melbourne will be nice to us and grace us with some sunshine.
Should be a nice afternoon, so come and visit if you are a Northsider!

I thought I'd check out the Modish Creators Market last weekend, just to get a feel for it before I do it on Saturday. Well, I came and looked, and walked out with these two little pinch pots from Golden Brown Fox. It was the first market she had done, and her ceramics were just too lovely to walk by twice!

I also walked out with some indian spice mixes, of all things. It was the last thing I planned to buy, but once you start sniffing all the yummy aromas of the spices, your wallet magically opens and you find yourself eating curry all week!

I must say thanks to the Indie Tot for featuring my work on their blog last week!


Market + new cards!

I did my first market over the weekend - the lovely Craft Hatch at the City Library.
It was very exciting to launch my works in a market setting, and all the sellers and buyers were so friendly! Overall a great day.

I'll be doing one more market before the end of the year - Modish Creators Market in Malvern Town Hall, on December 4th. If you'll be there, sneaking in some xmas shopping, drop by my stall and say hello!

I was busy busy leading up to the market, making calendars, and some new goodies - badges and greeting cards. Here are two brand new designs!

I really wanted to create some xmas cards that weren't TOO christmasy. What do you think?
These cards and a bunch more are now up in the shop.



I wish there were more episodes of this adorable animated show 'Saari' online, it's too cute!
It's great to see a kids show with such beautiful design, animation and lovely music. I'm probably not the target audience, but I would watch the whole series!
Check out this episode, 'Crepes'.

To market, to market!

I'll be doing the Craft Hatch emerging designers market at the Melbourne City Library this Saturday from 11-4!

This is my first market - so very exciting! And just a little bit scary...
I've been busy slicing up calendars, getting prints and frames ready to go, and making a few new goodies that will be launched at the market.

If you're around Melbourne CBD, do come and say hello!

I have to say a big thank you to Amy from Pikaland who featured my calendar in her illustrated calendars post this week. I'm really happy to be mentioned amongst other illustrators that I love.
And another thank you to Petite Carousel, for posting about Milk and Cookies on her pretty blog.


Friday afternoon

I sold my first 2 calendars this morning!
After doing a little happy dance, I put some thought into how to package them, and this is how they turned out.

A big thank you to Holly of Decor8, and Irene of Bloesem, who both mentioned my calendar on their lovely blogs. Thank you ladies!

I've recently started hand drawing little thank you cards to send off with my orders.
Just little sketches of appreciation.
You can't tell their size in the photo, but they are only tiny - about 3x3cm.
I can't help it, I really love drawing tiny tiny.

Have a great weekend!
