This week I've been busily preparing new stock for the market. which is on next Sunday 3rd May.
I've tried a couple of new designs which I'm really quite happy with. I still have a few more items to make (lucite necklaces and hairclips and more bookmarks) but I more or less have everything ready.
I've been neglecting my Etsy store over the past couple of weeks but will restock once the market is done and dusted.

I'm going to follow the blog path of a few members of my Etsy DUST (Down Under Street Team) team and have a Wednesday Wishlist post. I could include 100s of lovely things I waaaant right now but here's 6 for now!
1. Stormy Kromer Rancher Hat
2. French Jouy Toile Skirt by Malam
3. Florence Leather Earrings by Hollyhawk (I already own 1x earrings and 2x cuffs by Hollyhawk - love them and want more!!)
4. Mint Choc-Chip Cookie felt and button embellishments by Vintage Remnants (I think they'd look cool on a tote bag or a scarf)
5. Bird Cushion by RubyJo

I finally got to the exhibition this morning and was absolutely blown away.
Her work is so life-like, so surreal, vile and incredibly amazing.
Here is a snippet about Patricia Piccinini:
"Acclaimed international artist, Patricia Piccinini takes us on an incredible evolutionary journey to encounter the possible flora and fauna of our future world.
Patricia Piccinini has received worldwide attention for her startling sculptures, digital environments and images that compel us to consider an ecology and biology that blend species in the frontier world of experimental technological and biological environments. Piccinini’s works take us to a post-Darwinian destination populated with fantastical creatures, new communities and bio-ethical conundrums. "
More info about the exhibition can be located here.
(Children in the photos are sculptures too!)

I think I'm actually going to start using this blog space!
I'm not so sure what the main purpose shall be and I imagine it will be a bit hickledy pickledy until I actually work out how to use this contraption.
First of all I'll leave details of my Etsy store.
