Eat. Sleep. Make.

It's kind of ironic how the more your craft becomes your 'real' work, the less time you have to blog about it. And there's been plenty of craftiness to blog about as we get ready for the Kensington 3031 market (this Saturday!!) and the Melbourne Design Market (Sunday 30th).

There's been a bit of this:



And a bit of this...


(gotta love these two old wooden ladders we scored off ebay for $30)

Plenty of this...



And this...



And also, very excitingly... a new collaboration with Satsuma Press. OMG I love how the acacia looks letterpressed!!




Mmm lovely deep impressions. Lynn did an amazing job.

All will be available at the markets, and then in the Ink & Spindle shop afterwards :)

i wish our fabric online orders came packaged so cutely! i just love tags and packaging!

btw - i used some of your magenta birch fabric as a lining to a bag i just made late last night only to realize how pretty it would've looked on the front! doh! but i still got more (i didn't realize how FULL the full width really is! so much fabric!) if only i knew how to make reversible purses. i'm still working on it as i'm too cheap to purchase a pattern and dont know how to make one myself. i kind of just think a lot about it and then go at it!

and yes... success comes at a hard bargain. i'm petrified if i ever become that successful in whatever i end up doing. but i hope you can craft out more time to blog. make it a mandatory job function! :)

Have to say I think I prefer the acaicia print used on the cards - the letterpress really does it justice - just stunning.

While I hope the market is a massive success I hope you have some letterpress cards left over for your shop. They are ever-so-lovely and I think I must have some to add to my collection of simply divine letterpressed things!
