Winter warmer

Well if you live in Canberra you will really know we are in the middle of winter with the lovely cold snap we have been having. it just wont let up. bruuurrrrr..

Let me delight you with some interesting news and new works. well i have been busy with i am not sure what but that day to day stuff that seems to always get in the way of us just being able to sit and do the things we want to do and love to do.

The all encompassing continual thoughts of children and what we have to do..............each day...I am trying to prepare for next handmade market here on the 11th of september . cant wait but some much to do.

Have been getting together with some lovely business networking women learning what they are up too and how they do it. very highly recommended. I also met up with the lovely Anna and Cindy from the Lighthouse innovation in canberra that supports and mentors small business. great meeting them, inspiring woman and can't i wait for more of their influence .....

So I thought I should play around with the colour save you getting bored


Oh and that was the other funny thing i wanted to say if you follow Packed to the rafters as i do. i can't believe how much marimekko art they have in the house. wallpaper, wall art and i just noticed a lamp. such good taste their studio designers have..

Flowers and lipstick

Well with the cooler winter weather sometimes it affects our mood, especially when the sun doesn't come out. So my lastest find from shop handmade is a lovely little flower from summerblossom.

when i was a little younger i used to always think all i needed was lipstick and a flower in my hair and i could go anywhere.

i visited my 97yr young nana in her new abode the other day and she had just had her hair set and so i painted her nails just to make her feel a little more special. ..i believe for people especialy women its all about the little things... making us feel a little better about how we are and about how we look..

so needless to say i have be wearing my new flower and lipstick on these cool winter days. i hope you are..
