Boutique Markets

Firstly I would like to send out many thanks to all who asked after my blog entry a few weeks ago stating that life had been tough. I certainly was down and out but can tell you all I have hitched my socks up again and have a smile on my dial. My gran was 93 years young and is now in a beautiful place with my Pop in peace and out of pain. The memories and influences on my life are so much to be thankful for and I know she will be watching over me always.

The Boutique Markets at Portside greeted us on Sunday with yet another glorious day and even could say 'getting very warm'! With so much on this past weekend around Brisbane it was great to see that the Boutique Markets were still on Brisbane peoples agenda to visit and stroll around the never ending arena of crafty talent.

Mandy at Bailey Belle was first to gain my attention with this gorgeous vintage style dress made out of an old sheet. If it fitted it was mine, and yes it is in my possession. Mandy thinks a lot like me in terms of made from old to new, mine with denim, hers with fashion and amazing must I add. Can't wait to flaunt your creation Mandy, just so cute and comfy.

Taryn Newland was one of my neighbours and if only I had the right spot for this striking and fun print it would be on my walls. I think it is part of my childhood, birthday parties etc but there is something definately that draws me in to hundreds and thousands on bread and to see it presented this way on canvas is truly a vision that is beyond me being behind the lens!!

Moving forward, my next market is at the Handmade Expo on the 26th of Sept, at the Ipswich Turf Club. I have not been out there since early on this year so I look forward to catching up with the many Fabricated followers out that way and look forward to making some new ones.

Happy creation to all

Never thought this day would happen

Hi to the land of blogging. Can't believe it is the 30th tomorrow and its been 20 days since I blogged. I have had a family situation to attend to which has drained me of all motivation and energy. I DON'T EVEN WANT TO MAKE A BAG!!! And that is something I thought would never happen, my mind is elsewhere and it has made me realise just how much of myself I do put into making my Fab Bags. The good thing about this period of time is that I have been able to clean my sweat shop up a bit and create some organisation, while trying to clear my mind and deal with life and death. Every day is a new day, people leave the world and new people arrive. It is times like this that we are reminded how special life is, and how the world around us affects so many facets of our own life. We all should take a moment more often, take a breath, and take a good look around, what do they say, smell the roses!
I send love to my Gran and my Auntie Lorraine.

Don't leave the Marquee!!

Necklace from Hemaka

Girls Singlet from Little Diva

PJs from Mimoo

Unfortunately I did leave my little Denim Boutique and of course I seen just amazing different products so of course I had to spend! After saying hello to Helen at Ruby to go go I spotted hanging at her shop a vintage table cloth that I just had to have. I walked away and then had to buy as couldn't stop thinking how great it would look as a lining of a Fab Bag.

It was Cathy from Peg and Kates Birthday on Sunday so I had to wonder down and give her my birthday wishes only to admire some Retro Toes that just looked amazing up the top of my black knee high boots.

Across from my shop was Mimoo which I could see hanging these little PJ pants and singlet for Georgie who is 18months old. Just so her!
A few weeks ago Christine from Little Diva posted on her blog these new little racer back singlets with a little fabric frill on the front with matching skirts, well I had to have a set for again Miss Georgie. Just so different and a great price for little people.

I was lucky enough to have my Mum come to market with me last month where she spotted a necklace from the girls at Hemaka, I picked it up for her on sunday, she will be all buttoned out!

I would post a picture of the cupcakes I purchased from Tabitha's but they didn't last long enough to be photographed. The Caramel ones are to die for!!!

The morning of course started coolish but warmed up to a magnificent day, who could say it was winter!! It was also lovely to stroll around and see all the presentation adjustments to many stalls making them all visually outstanding and eye catching.

It was lovely to meet again many new people and sell to some very excited buyers now owners of my Fab Bags.
I also need to say a quick thanks to Lisa from Cute as Buttons for her help with a few little situations I got into with making some yo yos for my bags!! How you girls make these annoying little embellishments all the time I just don't know!! More patience than me!! I got it down to 7 minutes to make one and then found out I had done it wrong.?? How does that happen when you have the instructions and the template to help. I summed it up that some people are meant to make Fab Denim Bags and some people are meant to make yo yo's!!!!!
Also thanks to Maggie from Mags Bags for thinking of me when you were cleaning out your pretties, the scarves will compliment a creation to come for sure.
See you soon with some new creations.
