It's a Craft Bomb!

I may be a bit slow, but I now realise how brilliant the name "Craft Bomb" is for a market. I got up this morning and went into the lounge and thought, man it really looks like a bomb went off in here - but a craft bomb!

CraftBomb is a market based in Auckland so unfortunately I cannot attend, but if you are in the area why not check out this growing market. More here.

Christmas Decorations

Gift tags make great Xmas decorations!

It's nearly time to get the Christmas tree out again. I love this time of the year. We are having Christmas lunch at our place and most people would be starting to plan the food, but me, I'm planning the table and house decorations. Of course I'm leaning towards creating decorations using recycled paper, and I'm thinking about using some of the designs from my Xmas Card Range. Will post photos as I complete each decoration...

Do Good Concept

Hi! Came across your website when I was googling "charity greeting cards" or something like that. Absolutely love your designs and the whole 'do good' concept of giving a % of sales too. I've
been trying to run a business in NZ doing that with limited edition designer t-shirts and various charities and it's been so hard! So you've done very well!!!!! : )

Keep up the great work - what an inspiration!
Best wishes, Li Ling (Wellington)

Grange Organic Market

The Grange Organic Market is held every second Saturday from 9am - 2pm at the Grange Uniting Church hall and grounds on Beach St, Grange.

I am pleased to be involved in the market not only as a permanent stall holder, but I am also currently working on a new website and marketing to promote the market.

It's a great day out, and a perfect place to buy the freshest South Australian produce including, veges, fruit, coffee, herbs, dried fruit, nuts, wine, honey, eggs, olive oil, bread, pasta, legumes, chicken, lamb and beef, spices - all organic! Produce is straight from the farm so you buy direct from the growers at a very good price.

Besides great food you will also find organic linen, recycled greeting cards (MessageMark), natural cleaning products, cosmetics, soap, body products and more.

Come on down to the market this Saturday, do your shopping or just pop in for a yummy lunch and coffee. Bring cash and a carry bag - EFTPOS is also available.

WHEN: Every second Saturday
WHERE: 5 Beach St, Grange
TIME: 9am - 2pm
ONLINE: www.grangeorganicmarket.com.au (website under construction)

Photo Shoot...

My cute fluffy neighbour kindly volunteered to model one of my Christmas gift tags. Shadow (alias Tinker - well that is what I call him) comes to visit every day for a chat and occasionally he might get a wee drink as well. I think Tinker's owner thinks I'm a bit weird. I phoned her offering to feed him if she goes on a holiday. Do you think that is strange or just friendly? My husband thinks the owner might organise a restraining order against me!
