Studio Reno - Before & After

For those of you interested here are a few pics of the Messagemark Studio renovation before and after! It was a fun project to work on with my best buddy Denis. It certainly kept the renovation bug at bay, well, for a few months anyway! I thrive on projects like this!

Packaging Spotlight

I spotted this wonderful retro inspired packaging on The Dieline. Designed by an ingenious Australian firm Studio Bomba, this packaging would look absolutely gorgeous in my 1950s kitchen!

Success in Copenhagen...

Our distributor Lauren from The Green Suitcase did a fantastic job of promoting Messagemark at the CPH Kids Fashion Fair in Copenhagen last weekend. Absolutely loving the card display made out of wood, with the cards pegged to string!

Lauren is now getting ready for the next trade event... Formland on 20-23rd August.

You go girl! :)

X-Banners - great for markets

I just picked up my new x-banner from Office Works, Port Road. I am really impressed with these banners so I wanted to share this idea with all my market friends. This is the second banner I have had made, and they are ideal for markets or used as a backdrop.

They come with the stand that folds down into a bag (also included), or you can attach velcro on the back top and bottom and stick directly to a panel.

The best thing is the price... $97 which includes the bag, x-frame, and printing. All you need to do is supply a file 800 x 1800mm (no bleed) and they do the rest.

I will have it on show this weekend at the Eco Living Expo, Wayville Showgrounds.

my lovely nonite owl

My new "Nonite Owl" from little luv completes the picture in my current RETRO OWL window display. Little Luv lovingly makes a beautiful range of handmade toys made from gorgeous retro fabric. Each character is completely unique.
The cushion behind nonite owl has a cool story too. It was a Birthday gift from my sister Lynne, and was originally a prop from the Australian TV Program McLeods Daughters!! Lynne was an 'extra' in the show, however she actually found the pillow at a local garage sale in the Barossa. So I now own something famous - well kind of!

Hello Friend!

I have a new friend who comes and visits me at my home every morning and afternoon. He is rather cheeky and likes to wiggle his fluffy bottom from side to side. Help me think of a name for him?
