I am very excited to have been invited to participate in this event and can't wait to head in to the city and check it out. The doors open on Thursday November 28th, allowing people to see and purchase some of the hand-made goodness and one-of-a-kind gifts that Etsy Australia has to offer! Open until the 12th of December, the Pop-Up will feature workshops and demonstrations with local Etsy sellers, plus loads of other exciting events.

CC_digital_flyer I've been a.w.o.l. again... sorry! For most of this semester I have been feeling like I've hardly had time to breathe, let alone blog! But I am finally catching up, woohoo! One of the many things that has kept me so occupied lately is The Charming Collective, a group of super friendly, Sydney printmakers. To celebrate another year of printmaking, the Collective are holding an exhibition. The show opens this Friday at Art Est. in Leichardt and runs for just over two weeks. A few of the members are holding monotype and drypoint workshops on the weekend so if you are interested in printmaking check it out. Opening night is the 21st of November, so come see some art and say hi, we would love to see you there :)


esc_web Do you remember the maps I designed a while back? Well the fine folk behind East Sydney Creative (ESC) asked me to design one for Escape Early on Wednesdays, a campaign promoting film, art, music and design in the East Sydney area. ESC invites you to enjoy exhibitions, gigs, talks, pop up cinema, installations and more, in and around Darlinghurst, Paddington, East Sydney and Surry Hills. Tonight you can yarn bomb, catch a film at the Paddington Town Hall or share Dirty Little Secrets and see a live performance at the Oxford Art Factory... and that's just for starters! Escape Early on Wednesdays is part of Art and About 2013 and runs from September 25 until October 16 2013. Check out the website or facebook page for more information.


SaleCan you believe there are less than two weeks until Christmas? This month has just flown by. Do you remember the Christmas cards I printed? I just finished mailing all of mine out, I still have some available in my Etsy store and they are on sale until Christmas eve. They are available individually or in sets of four. You still have time to get some now before Christmas or if you are one of those super-organised people you could get in early for next year!
