To market, to market

That's right, Freedom Creative will be at The Night Market next Thursday!!!

Hot on the heels of Craft2.0, Felt is proud to present The Night Market, a Christmas shopping event on Thursday 3 December from 6pm till 10pm, for those who like something different. Featuring some of the best and brightest of the Christchurch craft community, The Night Market is a treasure trove of beautiful handmade products, including jewellery, accessories, candles, books and all manner of gorgeous Christmas decorations and gift ideas. Head along after work or make a night of it!

I'll have some new products that aren't even listed in my Felt shop yet (which I'll post about before then if I get the chance, not promising anything though!).

Yay! xox

Extra Curricular

You've probably seen other fellow crafters (especially in New Zealand) blogging about the release of the new Extra Curricular magazine... Mine arrived in the post today (thanks postie!), and I'm excited to have a good read of it, but that'll have to wait 'til the weekend. It's a sweet wee mag 'for and about people getting creative with their spare time'. It's available on Felt here, but be quick, it was a limited print run of 500!

There's also a Felt advert on the inside back cover, with one of my bamboo necklaces. Thanks to Lucy who always does an awesome job of getting Felt's name out there.

Christmas is coming!

Eeek, the weeks are flying by far too fast, and Christmas is rapidly approaching. Need some ideas for (handmade) Christmas gifts? Check out the Felt Christmas Gift Guide, separated into categories to make it easy to find the perfect gift. If you're from overseas, or posting to friends overseas, the Christmas postage deadlines are also fast approaching...

I'm flat out at the moment, filling orders and getting stock ready for The Night Market on December 3rd. If you're in Christchurch come along, say hi, and have a browse at all the talented crafters from around here. I'll have more info on the market closer to the time, but am excited and working on a few new products to tempt you all!

Sorry, been a bit absent lately... just a quick update to say hi, I'm still alive. Nothing to say, just needing some time and simpleness while thinking things through.

Love this photo, I wish it was me. Something to brighten your day in case you're feeling like me. (Photo title is purely coincidental I promise!)
