helloo.....im still here....


just.... but i am.....what a busy and stressful couple of months. Stocktake is officially over and i am reclaiming my life back....first on the agenda is looking for a new job :]

weve had a few health issues too but things are on the up there too but it did make me take a restock of things and one of those is to get some more balance in my life...

ive had a little casual job too teaching on my day off over the past 7 weeks.... tie dying Tshirts and calico bags to celebrate Naidoc week.
i took these home to rinse , pretty good HUH?! the students are very happy and proud of themselves....hubby is going to screenprint a logo of the centre of the circle....



ive really enjoyed the teaching and am off to Echuca for 3 weeks of more dye stained hands only this time we be playing with silk scarves and art journal covers..

the Square Market has crept aound very quickly and ive just updated the pink possum blog so go check out my doily madness.... doily brooches..



and a pic of some atcs i made at Bacchus Marsh for lynne who has recieved them....i havent made an atc for nealy 12 months. now thats sad :(

Hi Jen, nice to see you are still around!!! Those gorgeous Ts make me think of The X Files LOL, maybe the logo should be "the crafty truth is out there"? & those broaches are divine :) T4S

Love your tie die and your brooches.
I hope you haven't had serious health issues.
At least you can vent out your work frustrations on your art. Just let everything else go and let your arty goodness flow.
Nice to see you blog again.
We've missed you dearly.
Loverly Les ♥
