Shop Ruche

Cheap and chic, my favourite new online store: Ruche.

Illustration work

Time flies. Apparently I have illustrated the back page of Home Beautiful (David Smiedt's column) for over 50 issues!
A couple of my recent faves including the latest one on sale today...

6 weddings and no funerals

I've had 6 wedding invitations this year. Love is in the air!
I have really enjoyed watching the brides put their own DIY touch to their weddings, this crafty trend hadn't started when I tied the knot 7 years ago so I am living vicariously through my friends.
Pictured here is Emma (wedding No. 5) who got married in the NSW Southern Hinterlands a few weeks ago. I loved getting many emails about which Beholden decorations to buy, shopping for twine at Little Paper Lane and designing her invitations- loved her green and white theme! It was a magical spring day, photographed by dean Dampney of Cloudface Photography.

Horses for courses

Hot shoes at, (and loving their graphics).

Thanks Peppermint mag

Thanks to Raquel and the girls at Peppermint mag for featuring my textiles in the latest issue.
This is one mag that makes me think there is hope for me to be truly crafty yet!

La Banane

I dared to check the weather for the coming week- more low temps and clouds and rain, so depressing!
I have new clothes I want to wear dammit! To bide the time til warmer climes decide to grace us, I'm dreaming of La Banane hotel in the Carribean.
