Books, books, and hearts ... I heart books

Have spent the weekend making bookmarks and garlands for the next market. I have moved my craft outside of my designated craft space. At first it was just going to be my cutting board and some paper. Now I have two dining tables covered in books, paper scraps and bits of string. Go me.

bookmark ... made from a ladybug reading series



heart garland, made from romance novels (really cheesy ones) and vintage kids books ...



Went for a walk today to get out and about, in the 36 degree heat, as you do. To escape the ball of fire in the sky Brisbane calls the sun, we went into the climate controlled heavenliness of GoMA. This time I went straight to the glass ball elk. So worth it, you have to go see it. I endeavour to earn bazillions of dollars and buy that elk. See it here, from Kohei Nawa.



Then we got a cup of tea, from a place called 5thElement. If you want little to no atmosphere, surly as fuck waiters and earl grey tea that tastes like peach tea? Try it. After the disappointing beverage stop we trucked on to the Lifeline bookfest. Oh my goodness, I nearly popped a vein. I got a great little stash of treasures to cut up for $4. Bargain, I will be back in my lunch break.


And leave a comment here, or on the post below to win a fox brooch ...

When is your next market and will you be selling that bookmark there?
[It has an Irish Setter on it like my beautiful doggies, so I have instantly fallen in love with it]

next market is at South bank Sunday 7th ... the Young Designers. I will have the bookmarks there, there are lots of other setter ones as those books seem to feature those dog a lot!
