Getting ready for market

I spent a few hours last night polishing the new pendants and putting them all onto cards ready for the Design Exchange market in December.

I'm back to work tomorrow after 2 weeks off, and it's going to get hard to find the time to do everything I need to do, but I'm sure I'll get there!

Tonight I'm making some brooches, also for the market. Here's a batch fresh from the oven!

I think they'll be really cute when they're finished!

Well I think it's time for a bit of a read then bed. Must be well rested for work tomorrow (aaargh!)

New arrivals

Well things have been very busy here for the last week or so.
First of all, last Wednesday we had 3 lovely little guinea pigs born at our house. Bit of a surprise considering I thought we had 2 girls, and I only discovered the very fat belly about 2 hours before the arrival!

Then on Thursday my parents surprised me with 3 cute little Indian Runner ducks, which I have been wanting for ages!

I also got my application approved for a stall at the new Design Exchange market in Ballarat in December. Exciting but scary at the same time, especially after I visited the Buninyong Makers Market on Saturday and saw all the ace stuff on sale there.
Well I'm off now to prepare for this market. I know it's still a couple of months away, but with the way this years going, it will be here in no time.
Catch ya!

Soldered glass pendants

A few of the finished soldered glass pendants I'm making

Just do it

I'm gonna make this short and sweet. I feel like the first post is the hardest - what to write?! Well I've been thinking about doing this for a while now, to show off my creations I suppose! But also I am wanting to make a little business from my glass pendants, and this seems to be the way a lot of arty farty people go about it these days.

For as long as I can remember, I've been fascinated with old things. When I was a kid, I could look at old photos of my family for hours.  It's branched off from there, to the point where most things I decorate my house with are ancient. They are also things which serve no purpose in this day and age, but they have character and I just love them! I'll post photos of my collected treasures, as well as new finds along the way. You'll see a lot of old things/vintage looks in my creations.

This is me with cool old stuff in the background!

That'll do for now, first post completed! Yay!
