creative space: almost ready

I'm so very close to being ready for Finders Keepers... finally!


I decided to take along some little original illustrations. These are India Ink & Watercolour, I've photographed my two favourites, I was pretty pleased with myself for giving the Lion some snowshoes. Just call him Napol-Lion Dynamite. Yeah, sure.

The past few weeks I have been very focussed on the sewing & design side of things, so it's nice to do some actual drawing & painting which I love so much. So even though these aren't available online yet, if people like them I will definitely add some to the shop soon.

I also found this little box for my gift tags and covered it with some paper - I was so happy with it until Chris was all... 'can't you make it less... wrinkly?' So if you happen to come to Finders Keepers, just don't mention the wrinkles, okay?

And finally, today Pocket Carnival was featured in this super-fun article on the Etsy blog - check it out for a handful of brilliant labels from Australian designers! Thanks to lovely Mandi from Babyology for curating it!
