Ideas Ideas Ideas

So I have passed my business course! YAY! Which means my preparations are now going to go into overdrive and a new fabric design is currently under way.

Its a design of a box thorn from Inverleigh, Victoria, a place where Mark spent many of his childhood years.

Ideas for my website are underway. Mark and I are designing it ourselves and I will be keeping it very minimal and clean looking. I have been taking lots of photos of little bits and pieces that I want shown throughout my website. Dont want to say much more.... might spoil the surprise. ;)

I have recently been inspired by Susan Cianciolo, her ideas are awesome and I love the way she has laid out her website. Check it out on She is a fashion designer and loves promoting the idea of handmade.

This is a picture from her main page. I am in love with lines, scribble, rough edges, something that shows back to the basics and raw materials.

Autumn Cherry Prints

Check out my new Autumn Cherry print that I have designed recently. I have been inspired by my cherry tree in our garden and how beautiful the size of the leaves are and how they change to a beautiful red colour in Autumn. The colours the print is available in are Solid Black and Cherry Red.

Here are a couple of pictures I have taken and you can find my listings on etsy at

Practising Colour Schemes

Today has been a pretty eventful day with its ups and downs. Learnt a few new secret trade tricks and jumped into a few flops. Never mind.

The good thing is though, I printed my first run on my 100% hemp basecloth and it looks even better then what I first expected. Bonus. Will have to stick up a few new images to show them off.

Bracelet Creations

Just spent my last hour making myself a little something. I have had these coral beads for years and thought they might come in handy, so I finally set some time aside to make a bracelet for my new outfit I will be wearing to a wedding on Saturday.

Yay, I love weddings!


Just bought myself the new Mixtape mag Issue 10! Great inspiration! Been reading it inside and out. So many cool contacts and things to buy....

I will have to get on top of adding my favourites as contacts to help me build up my network base. I love the artwork Living Creatively used on their ad. I am so inspired by deciduous tree forms.
