3  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / Glebe markets on: January 05, 2010 03:56:06 PM
Hello hellooo!
Hope everyone is well and settled in to 2010
Has anyone had a stall at Glebe markets in Sydney?
I've been talking about it for YEARS but never actually gotten off my butt to do it.
Just wondering what kind of success people have had there.
Alsooooooo because I don't know much about this stuff, if I'm just looking to have a one-time stall of my goods, do I need to do anything special? (eg. ABN, GST etc..)

4  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / And another wool wreath - no such thing as too much of a good thing right? on: December 13, 2009 08:31:45 PM
Sorry, sorry - I know there have been a few of these!
Inspired by the lovely Elsie over at A Beautiful Mess, I set about making my own wool wreath (haha we don't really call it yarn here in Australia...well I don't!)

I wrapped the wool in sectons, then just cut out some white stars from some sheets of foam and hot glue-gunned them buttons on Smiley

Hope you like!
5  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / tegan + sara themed canvas shoes on: November 29, 2009 06:20:49 PM
hello hello!

i got one of my best buds in our secret santa this year which is great because she's so fun to buy/make for! she's been dying for a pair of decorated canvas shoes since i made them for another friend in march... so what better time?

she love love LOVES music and tegan and sara... hence my theme!
they're pretty basic but they're only my second pair and i freehanded it all... so i'm pretty happy with how they turned out! (some of the colours bled when i took the photos but i neatened them up later)

'scuse the giant, dodgy iphone-tastic photos! i'm just stuck at work and can't fix them up Smiley
6  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / My 2009 Christmas Cards - Print Gocco Style! on: November 06, 2009 03:14:09 PM
Hello hello!

I bought a print gocco machine two years ago...and only JUST used it! How mad?! I was a bit scared - what with the expensive screens and lightbulbs, I just knew I'd stuff up. But I didn't! And it was painfully easy and do-able.
So I printed up a tonne of cards using a "Merry Christmas" design I doodled up one night while watching Come Dine With Me (best show ever!)

I used kraft brown cardstock and some white too (not shown here)

I was umm-ing and ahh-ing over whether to print in black or in colour but stuck with black so I could fill in the gaps with colours like below! I think the colour will look better on the white cardstock where the colours cand stand out more Smiley

Hope you like!
7  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / Indulging my boyfriend this Christmas... The 2009 Myf Warhurst Calendar on: November 12, 2008 09:43:25 PM
Hiiii guys!

Just thought I'd let you guys know I discovered the most fantastic free website if you want to make your own desk calendars (y'know the ones that fit in jewel cd cases?) for cute/cheap Christmas presents!
I know a lot of Christmas crafts on the net aren't so relevant for us southern hemispherians

You just upload the photo, pick the month and yr and they do the rest

My boyfriend is OBSESSED with Myf Warhurst from Triple J/Triple M/Spicks & Specks so I made him a cute calendar for 2009 (ncluding Myf in a silly hat for Christmas and Myf with John Butler in July (the boy's birthday)

Happy Crafting Smiley
8  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / Card and Paper - Where to buy in Sydney? on: May 26, 2008 05:44:57 PM
Hey lovely Australian Craftsters,
Hope you're all really well!
I bit the bullet and bought myself a Print Gocco machine... but I need stuff to print on to!
I'm wanting to print cards and stationery sets... but I'm not sure where to get the best deal for buying it in bulk would be?
I've looked online but I was wondering if you have any pearls of wisdom to cast my way?
I want plain cards (preferrably pre-scored (is that the right word?! haha i dont' think so...) and i'd really like to get some recycled papers in the mix too!
Any ideas?
Thanks!! xx
9  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / Australian Consignment Shop on: February 14, 2008 04:26:43 PM
Hi All,

I'm looking to (sometime in the future, not sure how far just yet) open a store selling people's craft.
I'm tired of going into stores and seeing things that are mass produced and have no personality or style.
Basically, I want to take all the best stalls of a good market and make it into a store.
I know this may sound like a pipe dream but I wanted to gauge all your opinions on the matter! I have no clue if I'm just dreaming or what.
I just know there are SO many talented Australians making incredible things every day and them never seeing the light of day.
I'm tired of you having to be the next Tsubi (or Ksubi.. whatever!) to be known as a designer. We are all designers and I think that there is a market out there for quality, modern crafts
So a couple of quick questions..
Firstly... do you think this is even feasible?
Are there are shops similar to this in your area? Do these already exist and I'm stimply clueless?
Would you be willing to have someone sell your own crafts by consignment? Or would you rather sell them yourself at a market stall?

I think I might be crazy and I know there is every chance this is the stupidest idea known to man, but I'd just LOVE to get some feedback from you all on the matter!

Thank you all so much in advance!! xx

Hi all!
