The party that was + Christmas in July

Etsy Craft Party went well, we had heaps of fun and I think everyone went home with some goodies in hand. Here are some photos of the day. 

The waiting crowd at the entrance of library.

Craft party in full swing. 

My bookmaking workshop, quite a mess we made.

The figure art drawing workshop, such talents! 

Everyone enjoyed themselves and I'm pretty happy with that. A great success for my first  time organizing it, I'm well pleased. 

The annual Christmas in July Sale is just around the corner and I'll be joining other Etsy sellers in this online sales event. My Etsy store will go on sale 1-10 July and everything will be 10% off. Time to shop for Christmas presents, the earlier the better :)

I finally had time to to make journals again. This one is the latest that is listed in my Etsy store. A shibori journal that makes a great sketchbook as well. 

Well, the sun is finally out, hopefully it'll stay over the weekend so I can get some gardening work done. We are having pretty mild winter this year and the plants are confused. 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Finally, new journals and Etsy Craft Party news

I have been waiting patiently for my supply of linen thread to arrive for about 2 weeks and I am glad they finally arrive and that I can get back into binding more books. Note to self, check and purchase supplies early next time.


A new A6 shibori blue travel journal is in the shop. A new stitch resist technique I learnt recently and my head is bursting with so many ideas of patterns to create.


Another stitch resist shibori pattern. This gratitude journal is also listed in my shop.


A lot is happening behind the scenes of Etsy Craft Party, I'll be updating the event page with introduction to our lovely artists leading up to event day. Pretty exciting and I have to say I am enjoying organising this little party. It is scary at the same time as I do not know how it will pan out on the day itself. Crossing fingers we will have a good crowd that day.


Nothing much is happening in the garden at the moment, it's getting cold with 5°C this morning. Looks like I'll be turning towards indoor activities in the coming days.


And as for Kiki, enjoying life as a cat does :)

Have a wonderful weekend!
