Well, its been a massive few months and I’ve been firing on all fronts, literally and creatively speaking that is. I’ve been concentrating for the last 10 months…that’s all of this year!!! on developing a couple of ranges of ceramic wares.

I’ve posted about the process before, but now I’m reaching the end of the development stage. I’ve had a little pop-up shop for one day and it went really well, Now I”m working on doing more selling and more making.

Above are my “Maureen Margaret Alice” range of wares inspired by my Nanna and named after her. These use doilies, ceramics and crochet in combination to create¬† practical, decorative and nostalgic items. Other stuff I have been working on are my “Sleepy Koala” pots, my “Murmuration” series inspired by Greece featuring the swallow design and just for a bit of fun, some wheel thrown ceramic planters with text. I hope to have them all in shops locally and online on my etsy shop.

Lo and behold stamps



I’ve been playing around with these old stamps I found. I was wondering what I could do with them. Some of them are so cute and SO Australian. It’s a little bit if history in each one. Can anyone remember when sending a letter cost 5 cents?? Not me!!
Any thoughts or suggestions on what crafty activity I might do with these??? I’ve got a few ideas but I’ll wait until I try them out to let you in on the secret.
