August 21, 2009

Here are some of my favourite things. I am searching high and low to get my hands on them.

This is the first little one to become mine - thanks to Bridge in London!

YAY Tomorrow is MARKET DAY

July 31, 2009

Well we are in for a treat of a weekend. Tonight is the Rift Reloaded party and tomorrow morning (maybe not so bright, but early) is the I HEART Durban Market. I have tried to be nerdily organised for this market – I have even bought paper bags.

So here are glimpses of goodies that will be sitting on my side of the table.

HAPPY WEEKEND EVERYONE

someone is eating my sweets!

July 29, 2009

It seems that no matter how many sweeties I make there are just not enough.

So today I took a break and went down to the local scrapbooking shop to find a curved edge clipper for my labels. I found it, but I also found delicious papers and so, inspired, I created a new banner for our “I HEART Durban Market” stall. It is a physical banner but you can see the digital version below.
I then proceeded to waste the rest of the day by photographing my goodies on the lovely patterned paper.

I also think I spent more at the scrapbooking shop than I will earn at the market…sigh.

These are some of the little brooches (and pendants to come) that I have been making for the next I Heart Durban Market. They are moulded from the actual objects and are cast in coloured Jesmonite with brooch backs sunk into the reverse side for added strength. They are all sold on printed cards and make great small gifts. They are priced between R30 and R50 depending on size.

Here are some images of the small icons I have been making. They are made out of a material called Jesmonite developed by a company called AMT. Jesmonite is an eco friendly alternative to resin.
