remember to breathe

remember to breathe
this is a painting i did many moons ago, it still reminds me to just BE & stop. i am getting a lil over-whelmed with all the creative projects in my head & my hands are having trouble keeping up.

mama made that!

it is done! yippeeeee.......now to load up my new MadeIt store with all the handmade + eco friendly kids stuff i have been busy making over the last week. i must also do a 'lil bit of item shuffling around from my Holi Goddess madeit store.

OOOOoooo..i am very excited to have this all done, i am very much looking forward to adding my wrap skirts & tank tops to my holi goddess shop also. better get moving, there is work t0 be done.
have a great w/e!!!! oh and dont forget to leave a comment on my give away ( a few posts down)

all wrapped up in vintage paper

i found this divine vintage wrapping paper at my fave op-shop this week. 10 sheets in all & 20cents for the lot! i have wrapped up this weeks MadeIt sales in this gorgous paper, being very careful not to put too many creases in it & no sticky tape, hopefully mycustomers will enjoy it too.
i have saved some for my GIVE AWAY posted below & i am also having a bit of a clearance sale on ebay, with excess stock from the florist.

its tuesday & i cant wait......

to show you my new labels.
they are an iron transfer style, which means i can iron them onto anything i want! i had them made from the lovely people at SATIMER in geelong. they do all sorts of branding, definately worth checking them out if you need any kind of branding done. i have used them before & am always super impressed with their products. (satimer did all my branding work for Holi Goddess -tshirts etc)
so off i go........ to iron on my new labels to some unbleached calico, which i will then stitch onto my products. very groovy

garden party bunting

The Vintage Sew & Sews are getting ready to join the Mornington Market Charity Day on October 25th in a fight against Breast Cancer. The theme for the day is to be pink. I thought maybe some pink flower bunting made from my nanas new vintage sheet set would fit the criteria, for now we might use some in the garden & also available at my made it shop

birth-day love

happy birth-day to me, happy birth-day to me! i had a wonderful week long celebration! my mum knows me oh so well, the perfect gifts. the handmade in melbourne book i have not put down, i have been busy reading about soooo many fab melbournite craft people, i was very impressed to see POMPEIs boat building in there, i grew up in mordialloc so watching boats being built and come to life on the mordi foreshore has been a constant in my life.
ooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhh and FRIDA KAHLO my obsession with her goes back many years. this cute kitsch little frame now sits above my computer & keeps me constantly inspired. her passion for life is a true inspiration.
& my loving pauly & nina gave me (us) everything we need to complete our vegi garden. yesterday we dug up the new beds & got busy. was lots of fun. today i will do some more gardening as nina & paul spend the day together flying a kite

eco find

little ray of sun cable knit bag by fashion green t bags on etsy
how fab is this bag! made from an old tank top. i must have one. usually i convert my unwanted tshirts & tops into kids skirts & pants, looks like i have another to-do on my list.

it's tuesday & i cant wait........

its the 1st day of spring! i always try to plant a new seedling on this day, to welcome the new life forces of the season. nina & i have made about 20 of our newspaper eco pots this week & they are ready to put our seedlings in. so today we get our broccoli seedlngs into the eco-pots. it is going to be a messy day, with dirt & compost everywhere & most likely a few broken plants. i am looking forward to it, this will be the 1st vegi garden nina has helped me with from the seed, as we have moved house just recently & built a new vegi garden. it will be a wonderful time watching her, watch our garden grow.
