Moo for everyone!

Basically, if you don't know about moo business cards you're missing out, BIG TIME! They are possibly the most awesome cards you'll ever see in the whole entire universe and I got mine in the mail the other day, man I was excited! I promise you, so excieted I levitated out of bed, unwrapping them sitting in the middle of the hall clad in only was a sight for sore eyes that's for sure, haha!
Anyway, here are some snap shots of my rad new business cards and if you're keen to see them in real life (and perahaps aquire one or two) slide on down to King George Square on December 5th for the christmas suitcase rummage OR if you're in Brisbane and free on the evening of December 4th, come on over to Reverse Garbage for their Christmas fundraising extravaganza. My newest creations will be on display and for sale at both so please come along, have a furkle around and say hello!

New news!

The new news of the week is that under the stairs will soon ( as soon as TOMORROW!) be stocked at the Echoes gift shop of Reverse Garbage in Brisbane!
 If you're not familiar, Reverse Garbage is located at 296 Montague Rd (cnr Ashington St) in West End. Essentially what they do is collect all the offcuts and bit and pieces industrial companies would usually throw out and re sell them at super low cost to the artsy, craftsy, home improvement, handy type people of the Brisbane area. The echoes gift shop therefore stocks locally, handmade product that is 75% or more recycled or salvaged materials and I'm lucky enough to have been chosen to sell my brooches, earrings and a new set of necklaces I created especially. All my pieces are at least 75% salvaged materials and most are closer to 90%.
Here is a sneak peek of the pieces I'm taking down tomorrow. Today has been one HUGE day of creativity and i'm exhausted I can guarantee, but definitly proud. I hope you guys what you see and maybe pop in and have a sticky beak at the display when it's up!

Charm bracelet, part of the new tangent I thought I'de have a go at.

A charm from one of my new necklaces.

New cards (i love my caravan stamp!) and earrings in new colours for christmas!

All packed and ready to go!

...such a long day.

My first treasury.

Now i'm not that new at the whole etsy thing but I am new at the making of treasuries. So as I was trawling the thousands of shops I love online it occurred to me that maybe I could do one, just to see.

And here it is, my first ever treasury.
All about sisters and presents and how hard it it to find the perfect gift!

November rain/ rummage!

Well we were dubious about the weather but it turned out to be a really nice day. A little windy towards the end but all in all, a pretty good one.

Ash and I had clothes to share, handmade brooches, earrings and hairclips, handmade cards and gift tags and the most awesome little christmas tree decorations ever! (also handmade, of course!)

The new location I feel was a winner in the end. There were loads of other markets going on this weekend but it felt like we were in the thick of it. People who probably didn't even know about us stumbled upon the rummagers outside the library and for the better I hope. It was nice to see new faces and hopefully we made their day as much as they made ours.

I'll admit the sun did get a little burny as the afternoon rolled through but better sun than rain I say! (lets hope i'm not sunburt though!!)

Here are a few snaps of the day, just in case you didn't catch us!

cards and gift tags...

ash, loving it.

new brooches from underthestairsstudio (and earrings!)

Ashleighs' amazing new christmas trees! Super cute and just right for the tree!

...time to go.

Getting ready to rummage..

The weekend before rummage and I'm madly trying to make new brooches etc because I'de been fairly well bought out since the last one and it looks like i'm house sitting for a friend of mums. No problem at all, the dog is inclined to chew through anything that's left lying around but she's tiny so put it up high and you're laughing.
So off I went, all packed, with my craft under one arm and the over night bad in the other not 100% sure what I was getting myself into. Turns out though, an awesome time! With a cute as hell puppy, more kids movies than I could wrap my head around on tap and delicious pizza place right up the road who wouldn't be!!

My newest friend Roxy,

packing for rummage,

mixing ceramics and paper goods!

And the most delicious pizza for one/ wine combo!
