Shop Handmade - big YAY!

I am so super excited! I am now part of Shop Handmade with some of my things debuting the other day. The talented ladies at Shop Handmade (Julie and Rachel) have displayed my things beautifully and it all looks so inviting - Thank you :)

I can't wait to visit in June!

Courtesy of the absolutely lovely, lovely, lovely Jennie from Posie Patchwork, I have some great photos to show you below. Thank you so much Jennie for taking them, I really appreciate it.

I don't just sew...

I do other things, too. Before I started sewing I used to make cards - for weddings, birthday invitations, Christmas cards (using the customers photos) etc. I have just started to make some cards again but this time I am using some of my illustrations (made on the computer). You may remember, if you have been with me on this blog from the beginning, that I made some babushkas that I had printed on to fabric via Spoonflower. Even though I liked the fabric with its retro look, I was a bit disappointed that the reds had become orange and the overall 'washed out' look. So I decided to print them on to card in the colours that I intended.

Anyway, the reason that I am rambling on about this now is that the lovely Virginia over at Mum/Toddler/Babe is having a one year blog-iversary giveaway - and my cards are in the mix of goodies! Head over to her blog for a chance to win some gorgeous things :)

What a wonderful day!

Happy Mother's Day to all mothers out there. Wasn't today just magical with the blue skies and sunshine? Perfect for our barbeque (my darling husband did EVERYTHING).

I was very spoilt today for Mother's Day and my lovely children made me some gorgeous cards.

I was doubly spoilt as today is also my birthday (I am still in the thirty something bracket, hehe) and they made this fabulous card below. Isn't it great?

I hope you too had a great day being suitably spoilt :)

Mathilda's wrap up

I was going to put a photo of me and my son here but I looked just too...not sure what but not good, lol. Instead here's a pic of my beautiful son, he was such an amazing help on the day. I was having trouble getting a signal for my eftpos machine a few times and when it was declined my son went outside the building with the customer and it worked. He loves helping out and I love getting the help :)

Thank you everyone that came by and said hi, and to everyone that bought something, I hope you love it! This time I didn't have time to walk around to say hi to everyone. I got there really late and was not set up until just before 9am. I managed a quick hello to Katia, Lisa, Rebecca and Wynona before the market started. Then I had Virginia from mum/toddler/babe come by and say hi, which was lovely (I love meeting the people behind the blogs) as well as Sarah for a superquick chat. I hope I haven't missed anyone, it was pretty hectic on the day.

I made just a couple of purchases because i didn't have time to check out all the goodies. We bought two Sweetie Petite doll kits from Lisa and one of them will be going to a good home on Sunday - my son is going to a friend's birthday party.
