Busy busy busy

 Ah, life carries on, and I have been super busy with loads of gorgeous custom orders, and once again I am so very proud of Canberra for choosing to be bold and fun with their choices!! I feel so fortunate to be able to work almost exclusively with my own fabric designs, just take a look at these amazing pieces, these are all customer's pieces which have been in dire need of rescuing...

Of course, I still can't help myself when I spot a derelict chair, so I've also been working on pieces to sell, which will be joining me at the Christmas Handmade Market (Dec 8 and 9th)... and I've got loads more to do!!! Busy times ahead!...

 So don't miss Canberra's Handmade Market December 8th and 9th 10am-4pm at the National Convention Centre in the City - it's promised to be bigger than big! Cash up and knock over all of your Christmas shopping in one day, while supporting the little guys!

Canberra! How awesome you are.

     Handmade Market was fabulous as usual, thank you to my lovely customers for choosing something bold to take home - you all make me so proud to be Canberran!! I had a great little spot, and it was so lovely to be visited by some incredible regular customers and new fans, most surprised to see so much colour here in Canberra!

A few of my favourite, but last minute, additions came home with me from the market, so these are still available to buy. Make sure you check out the 'Furniture Gallery' tab at the top of the blog to check out what is currently for sale...

Since the market, I've made a start on loads of lovely custom orders which will keep me busy for the rest of the month. Here are the first ones completed so far: an adorable nursery chair in Dove Grey 'Love' print, and a pair of huge bed side lamps in teal 'Fanpods'...
Very excited to get moving on the others, stay tuned for some fabulous projects coming up!
 It's still school holidays and I'm holding on (to my sanity that is!)

Hope you are too! xx

Shoe: re-purposed

On an icy rainy day last week a school mum broke her shoe in the mud. Abandoned for a few days, I decided this morning that I could make something with it...
And if I find the owner of the shoe, I just may give it to her!

Thank you thank you thank you

It needs to be said, because I rarely vocalise these sentiments, I owe a massive  
thank you   to my clients and customers for choosing to be brave and outrageously courageous in their choices. It really does make me feel humbled and so happy to be adding something unique, colourful and interesting into your homes.

Here a a few recent projects which have been commissioned and snapped up by my wonderful people...

So, what's next? This baby is available to be done in your fabric of choice. It converts to a single bed in the most amazing way. See it to believe it - inspections are most welcome!

Love it!!
