My Award!

"I'd like to thank my mum and my dad, and all my amazing fans, because without you... Nah! It was all me baby! AAAALLLLLLLLLL MMMMMMMMEEEEEEEEEEEEE!" 
(Just kidding)

Thank you Handmadies for giving me the Kreativ Blogger award! Tis my very first! I am very honoured to receive it so early in my blogging career. Thank you!

Now for the official part.

1. Copy picture and post on your blog

2. Thank the person who gave it to you and link to their blog

3. Write 7 things about yourself we don't know: Here goes!

a. I have 3 sisters - no brothers
b. My mother is completely not into anything remotely crafty, so where the rest of us get it from, we don't know!
c. Aphid # 1 starts Prep next year... and I can't wait!
d. I can sing and was part of a 9 member exclusive choir for all 5 years of highschool.
e. I tend to spend money like it's going out of fashion.
f. Speaking of fashion, I am quite into clothes and am desperate to learn how to draft my own patterns.
g. I never saw the 1970's and am VERY proud of that fact! 

4. Choose 7 other bloggers to pass the award to. 

I don't really have 7 blogs to award since I'm all still new to this, so I'll award those I have.

5. Link to those other bloggers.

Special Orders

I've decided that there is no time like the present for making those special orders that I'd postponed for the past month or so in preparation for the Handmade Expo. On Monday I made 5 pairs of gorgeous Fluffy Butts (stupid here forgot to take photos before they were choofed off to their new owners. D'oh) and today I have made a pair of dresses for some sisters. 

Lovely, huh!

The Handmade Expo!

Welcome to Scurrette's Stall!

We had an AWESOME day and I'd like to give a BIG thanks to the following: The Devine Mrs R of Sweat Pea Delight, Swift Jan of For Fun and Fancy, the ever helpful (and great company keeper!) Pastor's Wife, and of course Everyone who came and supported me by visiting and spending all their hard earned cash our gorgeous items.

We done good!! (and we'll be back for sure!)

Finally, I want to give a round of applaus to Handmade Heaven, Bubba Chenille and Handmadies for organising such a great venue and event each and every month! The only complaints were the flies and heat. Next time ladies, try a little harder alright? (Oh and my location was PERFECT! I had great neighbours, a bit of a breeze, close to the ammenities and food (not located together... cause that would be odd!) and, um, I can't think of anything else!

Sewing up a storm!

I have been spending an aweful lot of my time moonlighting in the sewing room. You see I'm getting ready for the markets in a fortnight. I can even report semi well behaved kidlets! Hooray! So far I have about 1 rack full of goodness. I'm hoping for 4... ambitious? I made 6 things today, so I don't think it will be too hard to fill them up.

I'm not going to take any pictures of my creations just yet, but sneaky peaky's will come in a few days when I'm a smidge more organised. 

Stay tuned!

I awoke to this in my Etsy conversation thingy:

Do you sell wholesale and if so what would be the best price you could give me for the ruffle bottoms? I would need about 50


I need to get cracking!
