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
