Markets - we will keep you informed as we have no idea when we will be able ot go to the Old Bus Depot due to their rennovations. once I know I will pop it here :)

The business is only tiny and is not in any way out to make lots of money but rather to offer products to compliment the usual supplies available by big companies.

The Design Team Rachel Walsh, Belinda Comerford, Kathy Marchant, Daniella Tassone and Suzie Lowe creatively use the products to show people what can be done - and I treasure their input and design work immensly.

Thank you for dropping by, we aim to encourage and inspire you to do something different out of your comfort zone, in new and exciting ways.

Card sets now on Etsy

After a lot of cutting, sewing and beading, packaging, photographing and loading.... if have now 4 card sets on Etsy....... There are a lot more to come but that is all I have time for today!!!

Here is what it says on Etsy:

Welcome to my world of watercolours. I just love the way watercolours light up as you paint with them so I am delighted to now bring you my new card range.

As I travel and work you can often see me deep in thought as I collect items to paint, nuts, shells, seeds, leaves and flowers. My trusty watercolour papers and pencils have travelled Australia and New Zealand with me over the past 10 years and I have no doubt that they will continue to be a constant travel companion for years to come.

These cards are sold in sets of 6 cards and 6 enveloped each card is separately placed in a cellophane crystal clear bag so that they remain clean and tidy. In each set there are 3 hand stamped cards and 3 cards with no stamping.

The cards are made from artist grade cardstock which I cut myself, and so I can offer lovely colours in my cards. You will see that the cardstock, beads and print of my watercolour card goes perfectly together.

Each card has a paper insert which is blank for you to write your own message. I love writing my own thoughts and wishes so I felt that you might want to do that too. The paper is held in place, not by glue but by a special tying technique from Japanese bookbinding. The ends of the cord are embellished with precious beads, little stones or crystals.

And the price $13.50 US ($15.35 AU) plus postage which I think is pretty reasonable (I hope everyone else does too)

On another note - thanks to all who commented on my shop on Etsy - I have reloaded the fridge magnets and they look great I think - I have lots more to load but I have no more time today - maybe I need an hour each day to load stuff on Etsy! LOL
