Went to my first ever trade event - Reed gift fair in Melbourne yesterday to have a nosey, there were a couple of stands with a few bits and pieces I was interested in but not really anything different. I'm going to save myself for the next finders keepers market coming to Melbourne ( I think in March) can't wait!

There was one stand that stood out and that was Safade in Williamstown they had a beautiful display and when I asked for a card they gave me this little cute

That's all for now folks! when my new stock finally gets out of customs I'll let you know.

Well the shops going well and I am really pleased with the results from advertising.

I have been so busy with the shop, I haven't had much time to paint and that's really frustrating. I know I really have to balance out my time between business, housework, wife-work, mother-work and painting. I have such a full plate at the moment I am run off my feet but, I love it.

I've attached a couple of recent images of  one of my great loves - painting...

paintings and prints, you can find them at A Little Shop or my art website

You can also find my work at a fantastic Art Gallery in Sydney called Red Olive Studios. The gallery is run by artist/interior designer Kere Baker.

Hope everyone had a Fantastic Christmas and New Years! 

We had a really busy one, home reno's and sick kids with a summer cold, what could be it's time for a well earned break at the beach.
