I'm going to Japan again in October! I cannot wait. I have plans to visit chiyogami paper shops and museums and possibly do a workshop. I will no doubt come home laden with new supplies and ideas.

New Year Giveaway!

I hope 2014 is off to an amazing start for you all!

At the start of the last few years I have hosted a bumper giveaway and thought I'd continue the tradition this year with another amazing array of prizes!

Some of my uber-talented Tasmanian arty friends have given me some of their work to include in the prize! I'm going to be really quite envious of this winner!

So without further ado let me introduce you to the prizes!

The new gorgeous illustrated book "A Compendium of Collective Nouns" by Jennifer Skelly (from Red Parka Designs). The illustrations are truly 
beautiful and vibrant. 
See more of Jen's work HERE.

A lovely fabric wrapped "WISH" - handshaped wire word by Jane Green at 
Planet Joy. 
Check out Jane's store HERE.

A sweet little ceramic "hello" dish by Sarah Woodward at Sea Soul Studio.
Sarah's website is HERE.


A lovely wool felt Swiss Cross (or plus sign) banner by Fiona Whiteway from Hung Up on Agnes. The Hung Up On Agnes store is HERE.

A hand sewn pouch - perfect for so many uses - perhaps as a travel bag to protect the jewellery included in the prize! Made by Marita Bullen at Loopee Designs.

Gorgeous sterling silver earrings with beautiful Japanese paper with gold and white floral design made by Kate Montgomery at What Katie Did Next.

I'm also giving the winner a $25 Kiva gift card. You will be able to loan it to someone in a poverty stricken country to enable them to start or build their own small business. 
I do this as much as I can with some of my business profits. 
It's an amazing organisation which 
I'd love to give someone the opportunity to experience.


Lastly there is of course some Under the Shade of a Bonsai Tree jewellery! (value $110)

A Harajuku Bow Necklace - (winner to choose colour)

An "Oh My Stars" zodiac constellation brooch (winner's star sign)

A Tasmanian Myrtle Cherry Blossom Ring 

A pair of floral stud earrings (winner to choose colour)




There is also one second prize of:
Any brooch from the 
UNDER THE SHADE OF A BONSAI TREE store

Another Loopee Designs pouch 
Another $25 KIVA gift card.

Thanks to all my awesome friends for the fabulous prizes!
The competition will be drawn on the Australia Day public holiday on Monday 27th January at 7pm (AEST)
