Tania’s lovely 52 Week Challenge is almost at the end of the year! But do not fear, it will be back in 2015 with another 52 snappy challenges (and I’ll be helping behind the scenes next year too). But this week’s theme is Sunshine, and to kick off Melbourne’s and and off again summer, here is my drawing for this week.
For the second year I am joining the creative folk from the Abbotsford Convent for the 2014 Pop-Up Shop. Located in a space that had been long unused at the beautiful convent, this year the shop will be open from this Sunday all the way up to Christmas. Art, ceramics, clothing and much more, it is definitely worth a visit! More info can be found on the shop Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ConventPopUpShop.
I went to the Archibald a few days ago and was blown away from the portraits! Highly recommended. Now let’s just say I’m not quite thinking these are in the same league (ha!) but I thought I would share some recent portraits from my Etsy shop for lovely weddings/anniversaries/births/new houses celebrations – I’m honoured to be involved.
Finders Keepers was such a great day + a bit – the shoppers there are so lovely, and appreciative of meeting the artist/handmade goods/the general awesomeness that is that market! Thank you so much to anyone that visited my stand, I had a great weekend. I sold out of a few goodies, but most of the prints I have on my Etsy shop, and cards will be up there soon. THANK YOU xx

Next weekend I’ll be joining a stellar line up for the final Melbourne Finders Keepers market for 2014, at the beautiful Royal Exhibition building. I’ve got lots of stuff I haven’t put online – new card designs, postcards, fabric turned into hanging flags, prints, bags and gocco gift tags. Phew. I’m going to need a big wine after the event finishes next Saturday eve.
