Thankyou Brissie, Thankyou Finders Keepers, Thankyou Yardage Design

Photo pinched from Anna

Well what a whirlwind of a weekend..... and in the blink of an eye it's all over!

I headed to Brissy on Friday and Nic organised a lovely dinner in the city with Jennie, Selina, Kylie, Steph and Anna. It was a great night - plenty of laughs and delicious food overlooking the river, with such great group of girls!

It was an early start on Saturday morning to get everything set up for Finders Keepers. I dragged around 50kgs of luggage to Brissy and Nic was the organiser extraordinaire, desigining and setting up my stall with her props. I could never have even imagined doing this without her help!

In extremely unfortunate timing, my phone decided to completely fritz itself, and so I have hardly any photos. All of these lovely photos are courtest of Nic.

My favourite part of the weekend was meeting so many lovely bloggers / crafters / instagrammers. Everyone was so welcoming and so helpful.

If there was a prize for the most colourful stall, I would have won hands down!

If there's anything you see that you like, most things are in the online shop, but I'm aiming to add more as the week goes by (I arrived home after midnight lastnight and had to go straight back to the day job thismorning so I haven't gotten around to that yet)..

 Thankyou to Helen from Brisstyle for this lovely photo of Nic and I (I may have been a bit delerious at the time)

I received so many lovely goodies - a brooch and a care package from Jennie, and a gorgeous pincushion and pins from Caroline. I also bought a couple of things and swapped a couple of things which I'll have to blog later on.

I have to give a huge shoutout and thankyou to Nic - she worked tirelessly all weekend and helped me with absolutely everything. Next time, I visit, it'll be a holiday and we can go and do something relaxing!

For all the Brissie peeps - make sure to visit Nic at the upcoming GOMA Christmas Design market

The Rainbow Brooch

 I'm madly making stock after work in readiness for Brissy Finders Keepers Market.

The Rainbow Brooch is one of my new items that I'll be taking to market.... but it's also available in the shop right now.

If you'd like to see what I'm up to in preparation for the market, Instagram is the best place to find me and my makings.

Finders Keepers

So what are you up to tonight and tomorrow?

Finders Keepers Melbourne is back again at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton....

I didn't get a stall at this one, but I'm heading along to help Nic on the Yardage Design Stall, so make sure you come along and say hi!

In other exciting news, I DID get a stall at Finders Keepers Brissy in November. Eeeeeep!

The Week That Was.... mostly in pictures

A week of getting back into the day job type of work meant that I was busy busy busy...

I prepared in advance to watch the Great Australian Bake Off..

....and indulged in yumminess at NCB Wednesday night.

Which meant that I really needed a nice healthy stir-fry Thursday night!

I received a beautiful thankyou gift in the mail

... and a new teatowel sample

Mr Limpy Houdini Dog took over for me on twitter for a while...

Then the end of the week meant more testing at the Alfred...

...and a teensy bit of design work Friday night before I nearly fell asleep at the screen.

 ...and tried to retire to the couch, but someone was in the way

I had to wait for all those rainclouds to clear today before I could head off on a little walk.

...and watched the sun setting in the distance on the way home.

In other uber-exciting news, I applied for Finders Keepers - eeeeeek!

Please keep your fingers and toes crossed for me!

PS - if you can't find me in this space, I'm always over on instagram - @curlypops

Gleaners Inc at Finders Keepers

Photo by Betty Jo

I headed into the city lastnight and met up with my cousin to check out the Finders Keepers Market.

If you went to the last one, then you'll be pleasantly surprised to see that they've opened up more space, and changed the layout.

There's heaps more room to get around and the see the stalls. Sooooo much better! I only managed to run over two peoples toes with my trolley.

There were lots of new designers, and some really beautiful things to peruse and lust after.

It's on today 'til 5PM!

Finders Keepers Market

Make sure you go and say a huge HELLO to Liz and Kerry and Julianne who will be at the Gleaners Inc stall Friday night and all day Saturday.

Liz is going to have a veritable crafty smorgasboard of amazing Gleaners Inc designers on her stall!

There'll be lots of Un-Reel Pendants...
All of my hexie cushions will be available..

As well as some cushion covers (for those that don't want to carry a cushion all the way around the market).

See you there!

The Finders Keepers Haul

Mookah Tea Towel (to be transformed) and Screen Printed Denim

I had such a great day out at the Finders Keepers Market yesterday. I love hanging out with such a wonderful group of girls who love all things crafty and handmade just as much as me!

 Delilah Devine Flying Ducks

It was the perfect spot to catch up with everyone, and have fun at a market, rather than being a stallholder.

Kristen Doran Craft Panel - I've promised Kristen that I'll actually make something with it!

I'd decided on a strict cash budget before I arrived (the one advantage of there being no ATM at the venue to lead me into temptation), and I spent it very wisely indeed.

Even though I meandered up and down every single aisle, judging by photos I've seen on other blogs, I've completely missed some stalls..... oh well, just another reason to make sure that I make it to the next one!

PS - If money was no object, then I would have bought myself this.

Finders Keepers Market

If you're looking for a crafty day out in Melbourne this weekend, then you should definitely pop into the very first Finders Keepers Market.

You can find some CurlyPops goodies on the Georgie Love stall!

Don't forget my giveaway that ends tonight - I'll be back then. Fingers crossed that my internet speed resets sometime today. Make sure to check out all of the other fabulous Blogtoberfest giveaways on offer too
