Found most of my custom orders yarn this week, all on amazing sales thanks to @joann_stores and @michaelsstores ! Plus got this letterboard and fancy gold letters for my market table decor on sale too 🖒🖒🖒 I think I'm stocked up for 3 days of thanksgiving knitting. Coupons are the best.
Plus sent off a cozy black infinity scarf to TX today!

The nerves are setting in for my first market this weekend. I feel like I don’t have enough inventory and at the same time my table feels cluttered 😆🤷🏻‍♀️
What do you have planned for this holiday week?

Next up we have Bea, the genius behind the delightful @warmlii. Coming in two sizes (the cuddler and the hugger) and available in a wide range of fabrics, her cherry stone pillows are a godsend in the winter months. And we all have that one person in our lives who is ALWAYS cold!
-
-
“warmlii cherry stone pillows are a natural heat and cool pack reviving a Swiss tradition of using cherry stones as source for well being.
With unique and colourful patterns on the outside and hundreds of cherry stones on the inside, they comfortably adapt to the shape of your body and can provide instant relief, relax the muscles and give comfort.

No other natural filling retains heat so well, cherry stones do not degrade, they are hypoallergenic and smell delicious when heated - like cherry pie!

Bee is originally from Germany and started warmlii last winter after realising that not many people in England know about the use of cherry stones. She strongly believes in reconnecting to natural remedies and creating something that is long lasting and eco-friendly. Each pillow is handmade with 100% certified organic cotton.”

Please excuse the laziest post of all time but I haven't had a chance to take any photos or have any new thoughts lately because the Christmas rush is full blown. So exciting but mostly insane! As soon as I catch my breath I'll be sharing some new stuff and a couple of sneak peeks for this weekend's market @playcafeptbo !!! On another note, we will be making our yearly donation to the @movember foundation soon and it's something we look forward to doing. We have a loved one that works there who has educated our family on the amazing work that they do. It stretches FAR beyond November and FAR beyond moustaches. I encourage everybody to look into a little mo'. 😏

My Insta feed has been a little confused of late with more sewing and unfortunately less art making. But these pretty purses are a combo of both my creative loves and they will be available for purchase this Saturday at the Pleasant Bazaar Nunawading. 🙌🌈

I fell in love with Lucy’s jewellery the moment I laid eyes on it. @lost.in.france.studio is home to a variety of pieces each created using carefully pressed flowers (and bugs!). A perfect gift for any nature lover. Simple, yet elegant pieces that you can wear everyday. I know I do!
Lucy kindly shared her maker process with us which we can share with you now!
-
-
“I make jewellery filled with nature which means each piece is unique. I encase bugs, flowers and plants in resin and then make the gems into jewellery creating wearable magical mementos of nature.

First of all I dry the flowers, bugs or plants and then I prepare my moulds. I mix and pour a shallow layer of resin and let to cure for a good few hours until tacky. I am then ready to carefully place the chosen matter in the gem and once again allow to cure and pour the final layer of resin. I allow the gems to fully cure for a about three days and then I am ready to sand, polish, drill and add jewellery fixtures. And there we go, a finished Lost in France Studio piece is made!”

Tuesdays can often feel dull (anyone else nickname it ‘Tired Tuesday’?!), but these vibrant products by @wearehairypeople will brighten up anyone’s day. The company also has the most lovely story behind it which owner Sarah told us more about:
-
-
-
“We Are Hairy People is a Hand-Painted Clothing Brand and Social Enterprise, based in Bristol, UK.

I'm Sarah Caulfield, I'm an artist and I personally hand-paint every single garment, just like painting on canvas- the 'wearable art' is set with heat to make the pieces washable (inside out at 30). This is a process that takes me 6-16 days to do, with an average painting time of 8 days.

We Are Hairy People is a brand that works to encourage self love and acceptance. We do this through our self esteem model programme, and our warrior workshops which are therapeutic art outlets for those fighting mental illnesses. We also run campaigns to send our positive and loving messages.
Furthermore, our clothing is all made by ethical suppliers, using fairly traded materials and often organic or sustainable fabrics are also used. Suppliers are monitored by the Fairwear Foundation, to ensure top ethical practices through the supply chain, celebrating transparency and truly good working conditions for all.
I can't wait to make a completely unique and personal garment for you to love and enjoy!”

Find them on Etsy at wearehairypeople to check out the range of apparel. My personal favourite is probably the sloth jumper! What’s yours?

Having a week in Tassie means being able to pour together with my sister. So nice to bounce ideas off each other in person (rather than during one if the many daily video calls) This lot was from yesterdays cast, all in preparation for Sydney's @finders_keepers in a couple of weeks time.
