So, in the last month or so I’ve been reviewing all the crafty things I do and trying to figure out what I most enjoy doing which has turned out to be no easy task.  I feel like I’ve been living in chaos for the last few months so the time has come to get organised.

I’m having a huge destash of my craft supplies – most of which are being given to charity or being sold on trademe (for NZ buyers only).  There is a LOT of stuff to get rid of!!

I’ve also parted with some of my Blythe dolls and have still a few more to let go.  Two  Custom House BJDs did join the household today though so I can’t feel too virtuous about that one!! 

Getting rid of stuff is very cathartic and I actually feel more inspired by my reduced supplies than I did when surrounded by a whole lot of stuff.

Over the next few weeks I am going to focus on stocking my felt and etsy stores – with paper and stationery goodies and Blythe outfits.   I will also make a very few OOAK bears for Christmas.

So that’s the plan…now to get to work!


5 days till craft2.0

19 Jul

Where has the time gone?  It seems only a couple of weeks since Christchurch Craft 2.0 and here we are less than a week out from the next Lower Hutt show!

Here’s a sneak peek of some of my newest creations – cute little cars which will be available as both pushpins and buttons.

Catch up with all the other fabulous people who’ll be attending on Saturday over on the craft2.0 blog.


catching up

16 Jun

why do I feel as if I’m forever catching up on my blogging?  I vowed a few weeks ago that I would begin blogging every other day and yet here I am writing yet another catch up post.

Craft2.0 in Christchurch was fabulous.  I so love my old home town and the fact that it was held in one of my very favourite Christchurch landmarks made it extra special.

The show was busy all day.  I thought that I’d made way too much product for the show, but was pleasantly surprised to almost sell out.  Now I have to get my skates on and work hard for my upcoming shows and to get some stuff on my Felt shop.

I had a nice couple days holiday before and after the show which was good because I came back to a very full on week at work.  That and the grim days of winter have seen my crafting mojo disappear a little.  Lets hope it’s back for the weekend.

Christchurch Craft2.0

28 May

Just over one week to go until the Christchurch event.  I am almost ready…just a few final products to get into shape!  This will be my first trip down to the Christchurch Craft2.0 and I’m so looking forward to it.  I’m looking forward to shopping with some sellers new to me.  You can find out more about each seller over at the Craft2.0 blog
