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.

starting to breathe again

I just wanted to pop in and say how hard it has been this last week since my Dad's passing on Sunday .... my amazing father finally passed away after beating cancer 16 years ago .... he was an amazing man

As I walk through my grief I thank you for all your support and kindness... I appreciate it very much

I thought I would share a pic and a couple of paragraphs from his eulogy.... his will be sorely missed

Deeply Loved
Forever Remembered in Our Hearts

Family has always been so important to Bill and as a father he was always involved in his children’s lives. He and Nancy always supported, loved and cherished the family relationships with their children, partners and grandchildren. A gruff exterior belied a soft and caring heart, he worried about his family, and he offered support in so many ways and wanted to be involved to the very last.

Having his family so widespread meant cherished visits to and from New Zealand with Glenn, Heather, Morgan, Riley, Kate, Jack and Zoe, holidays in Queensland with Sonya and Ross and many weekends and special occasions celebrated in Canberra with Carol, Phil, Jessica and Mathew.

Nancy has been the love of his life for over 55 years; they depended on each other for companionship, adventures and in later life supported each other through the challenges of aging. They shared a special bond and were each others soul mate and best friend. Through the journey of life they have always been there for each other and their love will last forever.

Go softly Dad
Forever Remembered
