Bowerbird Christmas Event

I'm extremely excited to be attending the Bowerbird Bazaar Christmas event in November. We have some special new products to show you, plus our Christmas range of course! It's time to get those pens writing your Christmas greetings and get them in the mail!

So stop by for a friendly hello with the Messagemark team (Denis & I). We are in the same spot as last time. Go to Stand 78!

See you there,

New D.I.Y. Cut & Sew Kits...

There are bubbles of excitement in the Messagemark studio as we prepare for the launch of our new product "D.I.Y. Cut & Sew Kits".

We are very much into crafting at home, so we decided to expand our D.I.Y. craft range to include cute sew yourself Dinky-Dye softies. Something a little different again from the Messagemark studio, but this time working with fabric.

To continue the theme of providing human and planet friendly products, our designs are printed onto 100% super soft organic cotton sateen, and the fluffy toy fill provided is made in Australia from recycled plastic water bottles!

The toy fill looks, feels and performs in the same way as a high-grade poly fiber, but is completely recycled and non-allergenic. For every 1kg of fiber used, we save around 70 water bottles from ending up in landfill, which puts a smile on my dial! I am so happy that there are suppliers out there coming up with these incredible ways to recycle our rubbish and turn it into a useful product! Awesome!

Keep an eye on the shop for our cute Dinky-Dye characters... available first week of November!

Christmas Production

Using the paper drill at my local printery
Gift Tags Drilled - Tick!
I just got home from an afternoon hanging out at my printers Digital Print Australia. They are so good to me, they even let me try out some of their machines. I particularly love the electric paper drill, so it was an afternoon of drilling Christmas tags!
Sorting Gift Tags
Then I had time to hang out and keep an eye on the Christmas Card print run, and look... the printer was also getting into the spirit of Christmas with a bit of tinsel! LOL!
2500 cards to hand crease!
2500 cards to hand crease, just a small mountain! Better call my creasing boy......D E N I S ! !

I love legs!

One of my creations from the weekend. I wanted a bench seat to go in my hallway, but was struggling to find something that suited our home or wasn't too big. 

So brainwave in the middle of the night... Use a floating shelf (that we already had) and add some cool retro legs (from a laminex coffee table I had in storage). Voila! How cutsie is this?

I am now on the hunt for LEGS!! If anyone has retro legs (including table legs) lying around their place, send them my way as I have heaps of other projects in my head that I would love to do. Off to scout hard rubbish! LOL!

And if you like the Messagemark print on the bench you can purchase it here >
