My debut into mail chimp

For those who aren't aware (or didn't care) I run a little handmade market in Currumbin. I'm not out to turn it into finders keepers or anything similar - i'm happy keeping it small and being a nice group of people who enjoy crafting and making bits and bobs on the side of their already busy day to day lives.

The growth of this little market has been a natural progression and the next step that came was a monthly newsletter. I've tried to keep it mostly location neutral, so anyone in the world can get something out of it and enjoy reading it.  It's full of inspiring pictures, interesting facts, DIYs and the like.

For the first and last time, I am going to publish this newsletter on the blog - every month from now on, it can be delivered to your email inbox mid month. You can sign up for the newsletter here.

OUR NEXT MARKET IS: Saturday March 3, 2012.

Visit us for all the prettiest in handmade goodies on the gold coast.

Painting on Pencils

This is pretty clever and fantastic. A melbourne based artistGhostpatrol draws on every day pencils - turning something normal into something pretty incredible.

Fancy up your Keyboard

Have you been introduced to washi tape before? It's just the coolest thing around when it comes to craft products, nick nacks and stationary.

Found on this blog - a way to cover your keyboard with pretty bits of washi tape. Is it pretty or what!?

This is simple, quick + easy. It can be done bright and out there or simple and understated.
Paint a base coat. Let dry.
Roughly paint dots on each nail
Draw lines around dots with a liquid eyeliner.
Leave to dry, add a top coat + enjoy.

Mini Party Hats

These are just the cutest things around and the best toilet roll "art" I've seen.
Create little party hats just like these with glitter, wool + feathers.

They look like lots of fun + would be great for kids parties.

I'm still learning how mail chimp works, so it's all a work in progress really.
