Salt Sea Teas (rashy vests)
Bubba Chenille shorts
It was such a surprise to receive all these wonderful Christmas presents. I am proud to say that about 90% of my christmas shopping was handmade... some of the guys really stump me so it is hard.
Happy New Year..... nearly 2010.
Some children had to be locked behind bars for the day...LOL... here is Cooper.

I am honoured to be asked to be in Kate Cook's first music film clip. It was filmed yesterday and I am soooooo excited and can't wait to see it. My mum was in it with me as well and Paula has just been fabulous, I can't praise her enough for all the hard work and hours that she is putting in... just awesome.
So keep your eyes peeled for early next year for the release of her first film clip and song... very exciting.

I still have a few manly presents to purchase and then I am done.... done.... done!!!!
I went to Riverlink yesterday and have to say that I will NOT be going there again AT ALL for ANYTHING... it literally took me 20 minutes to get from one end to the other - absolutely ridiculous... if only they knew that you can get into Handmade Heaven and do all your handmade christmas shopping there... yes, you have to fight a crowd too at Handmade Heaven - but it's somewhere that you want to be and you can enjoy a cupcake while you wait... LOL
What about you? Have you finished or nearly finished?
MERRY CHRISTMAS.... ONLY 8 MORE SLEEPS (and counting)!
Don't miss out... great bargains of gorgeous handmadeness to be had....

Just had to share... again!

Well the last Handmade Expo for 2009 has been and gone and what a hoot... or is that hot!!!!
It started of with a lovely breeze, cloud cover and a gathering of eager customers at the front gate chomping at the bit waiting to come in and start their christmas shopping. So 8:00am the gates opened and in they flooded, one constant stream.... all day - thank you customers - you rock and Merry Christmas.
Our stallholders were extremely eager at 5:30am, the weather was coolish - of course you would start early. Everyone was friendly and organised for the final market of the year... patience is definitely the key so we want to thank everyone for that.... patience.. It has been a pleasure to help you every month sell your fabulous handmade goodies to the customers that keep coming back.. Merry Christmas and you guys rock too.
Also, a big thank you Liesa and Mum... of course without you this wouldn't be possible because I certainly wouldn't be able to handle it on my own... here's to a fabulous chrissy break.
And last but not least to my beautiful husband Dan and Dad who help the stallholders who need a canopy or help with the one's they bring, for putting up the signs and the blowy man to attract the customers to our front gates... Thank you.
So everyone, have a great break and merry christmas and we will see you in 2010 all re-freshed and ready for a new market year on 20th February 2010.
Ho, Ho, Ho...
