Where to start...

1. The drawers are actually finished! Yay... Joe spent an entire day last weekend touching up the edges of all the animals and attaching the handles. I will post a photo when it's where it's supposed to be.

2. The flat is so clean that I almost feel awkward. All the fabric is away. We had a house inspection this afternoon.

3. I did the Glebe Street Fair on Sunday, and I think it worked as an antidote for all markets for me, possibly forever. I forgot how rude people can be, don't get me wrong there were some really nice people too, but the 'I could do that' crowd was out in force.

My highlight was hanging out with some people I hadn't seen in a long time, one being Riyo, who spontaneously made me this blinky stamp- a type of portrait, she sat and drew a picture of her fave blinky and whipped this up and presented it to me!

She also gave me some of that great Japanese rubber she uses to carve her stamps from, my mind boggles at all the possibilities, but she's had a lot of practice, and I'm pretty sure my first attempt won't be nearly as impressive as her stuff.

4. Needless to say, I have some extra dolls left over from the weekend, and I will be popping them in my online shop sometime soon- this time I'm using Etsy, the Aus dollar is practically the same anyway.

5. I'm selling the Dew Drop Girl and Meekoo patterns up until Christmas- I've gotten a million emails about them in the last little while, so this is the link to my etsy shop. Please don't make them and sell them though, I've noticed a bit of that going on lately.

6. I've been making some more things for the baby, including some drawings for her walls, and I'm planning on making up some screen prints too. This is what I have so far:a picture i made for the baby's room

I've been so lucky to hardly ever encounter the 'I can do that' types at markets.
Either that or I'm too deaf to hear it!

I love the idea of using your drawings in the baby's room! It's all going to be so special.

To the people who say I can do that boo! I've been saving a couple of your screen prints to use in next bub's room so think you little girl will be very lucky to have original drawings.

i am following in your footsteps and my house hopefully will be clean after next week :) that stamp looks cool, very lovely present to get. i've tried carving stamps and its easier than you think, so have a go and you will be amazed :)

Shame on the "I could do that" crowd! Boo to them. How long will everything stay neatly tidied away for? I also remember that feeling of lugging around a couple of sandbags strapped to your middle - so uncomfy! Rest up. :)
