Low key

Thank you everyone on your helpful hints on the top! I've decided to go minimal and just skip the embellishment. I did tack on a bow and then a button just to check out the look, but it ended up way too busy with the print. So now it'll remain simple.

Its been a bit of a low key weekend with lots of visits to the nearby swings and enjoying the sunshine. The little heatwave we had last Friday has lingered so much, I've been procrastinating on my current project.


But, I finally strapped myself to the craft table to finish these off......framing some prints....



......adding some swing tags and labels........



......and doing all the last minute quality checks for this lot.

Can I let the cat out of the bag now?! Now that I've sealed and delivered my first wholesale order this morning to a local boutique, I can finally tell you what's been keeping me busy in the past month. Yep, not exactly secret, but you must be wondering why the stuff's not making an appearance anywhere. 'Cos they're already reserved for a lovely lady who ordered it all about a month ago.

Sydneysiders, the shop address is: Ruiz & Mackell-Wong, 169b Avenue Road, Mosman.

Phew! I better get to some personal crafting......then again, maybe I'll just put my feet up and read some trashy mags.

Go the trashy mags!!!! I think you deserve a break after all that. Your zipper purses are too cute - i want one. I need a shopping trip to Sydney...I went to North Bondi Primary School - therefor I need a shopping/memory lane trip...hmmm. Now to convince James.
