I know I have been a little quiet of late but that is because I am in Finders Keepers lock down, busily preparing for my stall this weekend.

If you want to grab a cheeky sneak peek at the goodies that will be available, check out a little picture of me and my clutches over at the Leeloo blog where I am this week's featured designer.

There are also a few new ReJenerate goodies available (like the clutch pictured which is made from a salvaged table runner) in the Leeloo shop.

Thanks Leeloo xx

Princess and The Pea as interpreted by Tabitha Emma

The Little Mermaid as interpreted by Renee Anne

Hansel and Gretel as interpreted by Meeri Anneli

The Ginger Bread Man as interpreted by Enyaj

Little Red Riding Hood as interpreted by Courtney Brims

I had the most fun night last week filled with Nepalese food, my mum, my hubby and lots of gorgeous artwork at the Once Upon exhibition.
I was absolutely blown away by the stunning art works and I think I really loved ALL of them! Above are a few of my favourites. Aren't they amazing?? If you missed the exhibition don't stress as some art works are still available online here.
Another huge congrats to Ang from Leeloo (and happy 2nd birthday to Leeloo!) and Renee from Art4Friends who put so much love and hard work into this amazing event. You ladies blow my mind.

New Release at {twin set}

Oh {twin set} why must you do this to me?? Another divine photo shoot that makes me spend hours swooning when I should be cutting out clutches for the Finders Keepers markets!
Do yourself a favour and go and check out the twin set website to see their gorgeous new releases.
Now back to cutting...I will post a pic of some of my new creations soon.

Just discovered a great guest post by Angela from online boutique Leeloo over at the Style Collective blog.

It looks at whether eco fashion is really any more expensive than the mass-produced stuff and offers up some fantastic affordable eco fashion options...including one of my recycled handbags. Thanks Ang!

ReJenerate Mag Love

Garden Love Bridesmaids Clutches

I have been trying to get some 'ready to ship' bridesmaids clutches online as the turn-around for my custom clutches is currently between 2-4 weeks and some brides don't have that much time up their sleeves.

The sets that I have listed before have been snapped up so I thought I would try to get some more happening. Here is my latest offering, the 'Garden Love' bridesmaid set made from a set of vintage napkins.

Check them out here.

Heidi & Seek Relaunch

Exciting news! The Heidi & Seek shop has been relaunched and stocked up with brand new and super cute the Oh Bow Tee above. Love it!
And those of you familiar with the Melbourne label will know that all Heidi & Seek creations are all made from 100% reclaimed fabrics.
Go check it out - but be quick as all items are one of a kind and have a habit of selling FAST!

Advent Loveliness

I was chatting to my mum the other day about the amazing advent calendars my grandmother used to give us at Christmas time. They were magical glittery scenes with little windows that would open to reveal more glittery goodness that really brought on the excitement of Christmas.
Well I gotta say - they don't make them like that anymore! The only advent calendars I can ever find are the ones that hide dodgy over-sweet chocolates behind the windows. And once the chocolate is gone, you're left with ugly bits of choc smeared plastic behind each window. Hmmph.
So you can imagine my delight when I spotted this grown up version of the advent calendar on Etsy. It's inspired by the quaint little shops in Amsterdam and features little Christmas-y pictures behind each window.
I wonder if any Aussie craftsters are making advent calendars this year...
