birds and the bees

Thought I'd share some pictures of the shop today... Enjoy!
(& yes we are definitely obsessed with birds & I can't see an end in sight.)

Huddle Formation

It's cold & wet & horrible in every way here right now. Which means there is only one thing to do... you guessed it, Romy & I (the shop girls) have been having a giggle with photobooth.

I hope it's not quite as horrid where you are & that you have power. I can't imagine what I would do without the Internet on a day like this. X

Sad eyes...

One of my favorite labels- (which sadly is no longer available in New Zealand) Built By Wendy, is having a sale. 50% off most of their spring collection. It's all so perfect, I'll have one of each please! And yes, they do ship to NZ... *sigh* Anyone want to time share one of these dresses? X

You light up my life

As well as crafting & selling (& dancing) me & Liv (& her man friend Richard) got up to something else last weekend- We visited the infamous Brooklyn Galleria.

I was telling Liv all about this amazing lamp I had seen there but was now gone as we were walking up & whaddaya know it was still there!

It's a gorgeous piece of craft in the best possible sense! For two reasons-
1. It now lives with me, thanks very much to lovely Liv, who even bargained it down &
2. It is made entirely out of Popsicle sticks.

Whoa! I know, it's pretty amazing. X

(Oh & I apologise for not using an eco bulb, but I already had this one, to not use it would be wasteful, right?)

Oh yoko

So Craft 2.0 was super fantastic! Sue does such an amazing job of rallying all these talented people & getting the crowds along. Thanks Sue!

Me & Liv had fun looking at babies & admiring all the beautiful things, not to mention minding our stall. Over all it was a success! I've uploaded a bunch of photos to our flickr, here's some of my faves...

No ones gonna love you more than I do...

So I am trying to work, but someone is not letting me...

Crafters of the world...

Craft 2.0 is tomorrow! As promised here is some insight into the craftyness that has been taking over round here.
I went gocco mad at the begininng of the week, printing more business cards, greeting cards & some cute papercup swing tags. Man I love that little machine!

We've also got a whole swag of cute purses, one for you, one for your Mum & one for the dog!
We've got mushrooms, little story book scenes, vintage fabrics & goccoed ones too.

I've also been beavering away making necklaces, I just got some very, very cute charms- like the teacup! it even has a wee teabag hanging out of it! Must go put the finishing touches on my cards. See you tomorrow at Craft 2.0! x

So sorry for the blog slackness! We've been beavering away in preparation for our evening last week (which was just lovely by the way & thanks so much to everyone who came!) & for Craft 2.0 which is this Saturday. It's going to be so much fun, We've got lots of great things up our sleeves & I'm really looking forward to NOT being hung over this time. (More to come on the craftyness soon!)

I've been trying to organize some good weather for the weekend but it's not looking good so far, today is super grey & cold & I can tell the clouds could burst at any minute... But winter ain't all bad! Check out this photo found via Apartment Therapy by Artist Sam Spenser as part of this show. Winter has it's ups! I'm thinking layering- don't you love being able to wear lots of clothes? Gumboots, what not to love about gumboots? I have cowboy boot ones & they are just super! Umbrellas, beautiful bright umbrellas, although not very practical in windy wellington I am totally in the market for a beautiful umbrella I've got my eye on these two from Fred flare...

Right now I am listening to Band of Horses, their beach boys-esq sound is the perfect combat to the greyness outside. They are playing at the end of the month but in Auckland only & I don't think I'll be able to make it. Ah well, I've got my cowboy (gum) boots & my layers, I think I'll survive. x

What's new pussycat?

Yup, very cheesy. But I said I would use song tittles for my posts & couldn't think of anything else.
This is my favorite desk accessory- Romy. She's loving herself sick here in the sun & wouldn't stop posing for me. Bless.

Also My friend's band Songs are playing this Saturday at happy, it should be a great show! According to the experts "songs are four people who know a lot of stuff and who make music that sounds like they know a lot of stuff." (Vice) Have a listen to them on their myspace page or check out their great video here.
