Happy Hair Bands

This is my new thing... I can't cope with hair around my face so I'm a huge hair band fan, but so many of them my head too big?, these are super bendy so a standard one fits my 4yr old and me, so we can share them bonus!

I know it's only September and any moment now we will be seeing Christmas decorations all over the shops....I've started work on my Christmas stockings. These are a fantastic size at 43cm in length, perfect for pencils, textas, and perhaps candy cane or two...

I'm not sure how much to charge for them??? $15 or $20??? any thoughts anyone??

Back to work!

I have recovered from the Handmade Market!! Now it's back to work.

These tunic's are so comfortable and will fit for several seasons, great through winter with a top and cute tights. They are great value for only $45 and were a massive hit at Handmade!

Handmade success!!

Wow wow wow, the Handmade Market was the most fantastic success!, Soo many amazing stall holders the Yarralumla Woolshed looked fantastic.

On a personal level, I had a wonderful time, I met so many lovely people some beautiful babies and children! ohh and the odd dad if they dared to enter the stall (it was packed out all day).

The adrenalin didn't stop until 3.30 this morning - I simply couldn't get to sleep, so I'm exhausted but also really excited and inspired. I thought I'd put up a couple of photo's of my stall and hope to be a bit more articulate tomorrow.

Thanks to everyone who came out and said hi
