Handbagging it up

It's the last day before my next market stall, and it's been a little while since the last one...

I've been toiling away in my little sweat shop whipping up some new bags to take along, and listening to my new favourite CD. Of course, there's been the normal bouts of complete procrastination, and lots of cups of teaand chocolate for sustenance (and I may even admit to a little op shopping excursion - I was having serious rummaging withdrawals).


I had to take poor old Frances outside into the cold for a photo shoot (sorry about the completely uninspiring background, but I had the choice of bricks or a colourbond fence.... or we could have played in the jungle of weeds that are currently inhabiting the patch of dirt which is supposed to be my backyard).

So I now have lots of new handbags and lots of new brooches to take along with me.


If you're looking for something to do on Saturday (22nd August), then come and visit the market at:

Queen Victoria Womens Centre
210 Lonsdale Street
Melbourne

Market will be open from 10.00 AM - 3.30 PM

Annmarie from Crafty Girl with Ruffle will be sharing a stall with me, and Cathie from Melbourne Epicure will be providing sustenance with delicious breads, cupcakes, and biccies (must remember 4 gingerbread men for my nephews).

I still have a few things left on my to do list today:

Organise change
Find tablecloths
Make pricetags and pricelist
Print order forms / receipts
Pack car
Early night!

These are all divine. I think bdtween you and dorothybills I have lost my mojo. You both have such natural talent with using vintage that I know there is no chance for me. You always amaze me with the new ideas you come up. Cherrie

Wow you have been working! Loving the new bags Cam - still trying to ponder precisely what it is about them that screams CurlyPops! (Thinking again, it might be the more colourful ones that scream the loudest)...

Serena said...

Hey Cam, I had a quick look at your new favourite CD and the best cover of all time is on there.. .the cover of Miss Jackson , which is even better than the original. Thanks for the tip.. am going to have to get myself a copy of this CD.
