I have been making a special effort to try and have more ready-to-ship bridal clutches available in my online shop for last-minute brides (like I was!) who don't have time to wait for a custom clutch to be made.
Tabitha Emma - you're killing me! Well my bank account anyway.
Every single one of these digital collage creations are tempting me. I have just bought another as I simply could not resist. I think you will agree that the above images can be used for about one bazillion different super cute ideas.
If you like, you can check them out for yourself here.
Today is such a beautiful winter's day. I used to hate winter but these days I'm really coming around.
The Little Miss and I went for a long walk this morning to take in the winter sun. We stopped for coffee and a chat at our favourite local cafe and headed home to the studio and my first full day of work since the Little Miss arrived on the scene.
I am creating a set of bridesmaids clutches for a lovely bride in the US. The clutches will feature the gorgeous gold tone vintage brooches pictured above. Divine.
I have always loved Sydney artist Tabitha Emma's style. Much to my delight, she has recently opened up a new Etsy store specifically for 'graphic downloadables'.
The above digital collage sheets (along with lots of others available in Tabitha's shop) can be printed off and used for gift tags, cards, scrap booking and just about any other art/craft project you can think of.
And the best news? Each download is only US$5!
Do yourself a favour and check them out here. Print some out and send a friend some pretty snail mail.
I feel like it has been raining for months in Sydney. Although I miss not being able to get out for walks, this weather does give a great excuse for snuggling under a blanket and drinking cup of tea after cup of tea.
Not bad weather when you have a new baby either...snuggles all round!
It really makes my day when my customers take the time to get in touch and say how much they loved the custom creations I designed for them. I love it even more when I get photographic evidence!
Here is a pic of gorgeous bride Pip and her bridal party. For Pip I made a silk clutch featuring a vintage bird brooch and for her bridesmaids, two slightly different clutches featuring silver satin and a stunning aqua and silver vintage brocade. Here's a close up:
A huge congrats to Pip and her hubby. And thanks for letting me share this lovely photo of your Big Day.
Hi. I’m Jennie Smith.
I like recycling. I like trying to preserve our amazing planet too.
I also like designing and wearing pretty things.
Unfortunately these interests are often contradictory.
So...I created ‘Rejenerate’. Just so I could, you know, get all my interests on the same page.
Now I spend most of my time hunting down vintage fabrics, pre-loved clothes, unloved curtains and recycled bits and pieces and upcycling them into lovely new handbags and fashion accessories.
That way I can still sleep at night if I have the urge to accessorise each outfit with a different handbag.
And so can you.
