Such a privilege to be working alongside such talent.
For more information on the upcomming market, visit
Its going to be a fantastic event, with over 50 market stalls both
indoors and outside in the garden area.
Plus live music and a supervised kids activity area!
Recently we had a great little adventure as we travelled in to the
big smoke to visit the Young Blood Designer Markets
at The Powerhouse Museum.
These were my snaps from the day of bits and pieces
that captured my attention!
So cute are these little hair accessories from Chi Chi
Contemporary jewellery from In Sync design www.insyncdesign.com.au
Inseperable Companion (part of the collection from the students from
Enmore Design Centre) www.jewelleryandobjects.org
So cute were these Thread Pets - softies and funky bandana style bibs www.etsy.com/shop/Threadpets
OK, so if I could add another project to my planner, it would have to
be screen printing. Alas, I just don't have the time or space at the moment,
so get my fixes from textile and print designers whenever i can!
Loved the polish designs from Laikonik www.laikonik.com.au
Gorgeous designs from Swoon and Blues www.swoonandblues.wordpress.com
they also had these fantastic wall art clocks!
Bright and Bold, just to my liking,
all so stunning. I purchased a singlet top from Materialistic, and the designer
gave Mali a few free badges too :)
Funky brooches from Cherish Vintage Treasures
Mali wearing her badges that were a gift from Materialistic.
Unfortunately I can't locate the designer of the cute necklaces :(
Okt-ober Dee Stunning collection of accessories and bags,
totally gorgeous and talented!
I have a bit of a thing for brooches - love making them myself, and love buying!
purchased one from the designer Notions
also, not Pictured but very cool - and I purchased a pair of their silver dove earrings!

Last weekend we celebrated our little man's 2nd Birthday!
I had decided some time ago, that it would be in the theme of Teddy Bear's Picnic.
The main problem that i encountered though, was finding decorations to suit.
There were plenty of boys's jungle, spaceship and magic show party decorations,
but I couldn't find anything that suited a 2 year old with a teddy for a best friend.
Then my gorgeous friend Carissa Little (of Bella Piccolo Photography)
came to the rescue, and specially designed all the templates for all
the teddy themed party decorations I would dream of!
Check out her blog, as she did a fantastic job with her own daughter's 2nd birthday
and this may be a specialty business that you will see more of in the future!
Pictured above we have custom made "soda pop" labels attached to
apple/blackcurrent pop tops juices, personalised party favour boxes, cupcake toppers,
party hats, gift tags and bunting. There were also popcorn boxes, but i ran out of time!
I purchased special paper from the Scrapbook Shop, it was red with white dots on
one side, and red and white stripes on the other, and another friend created the
colour coordinated balloon topiary displays to match.
The treat table consisted of tiny teddies, sour bears, gummi bears,
and arnott's chocolate covered teddy biscuits.
So, I also had fun coming up with the little coordinated outfits for the kids.
It started on a recent trip to Kids Central at Entertaintment Quarter,
where i came across the Freshbaked Faux Fur Vest for Amalia.
I thought it looked just like a cuddly bear vest.
I also grabbed the blue cord vest for Tae. He also wears Cheeky Chickies
Rib Knit Rollover Top in Hibiscus Red, Pants from Krickets and the most
divine red leather loafers from Czarque! These baby shoes are made in
Australia too - we can't wait to work side-by-side with Czarque
a The Baby and Toddler Show, Darling Harbour 1st, 2nd, 3rd October!
So Mali also wears Cheeky Chickies Rib Knit Rollover Top in White Sand,
Frill Sleeve Top in Ocean Blue, Twirlie Whirlie Skirt in Hibiscus Red (new style)
and Rib Knit Slim Fit Pants in Ocean Blue, and her red leather Lelli Kellis.
As you can see, it was enjoyed greatly by our little man!
