Hey 2011, please slow down!

Wow, the year is flying by huh? I can't believe another month is nearly over... Just thought I'd do a quick round-up of all the wee things that happened in August:
  • I sent off a range of my Japanese paper jewellery to new stockist, Vesta Design Store in Queenstown.
  • I completed a custom order for a lovely lady from Tauranga. She wanted four of my butterfly frames in a larger size than I usually make, for her bedroom - so sweet that someone likes them enough to put them in such a personal space. I have no idea what her bedroom looks like - but that photo is how I imagine them. I also made a few spares, so I'll have them with me at Spring Encraftment on September 10th.
  • We had a great week long break in one of my favourite places - Wanaka. It was really nice to get out of Christchurch, have some fun on the slopes and actually relax.
  • We had fun building snowmen and making snow angels when it snowed a heap for the second time this year.
  • I've been sick with a nasty flu that I just can't seem to shake. I've now had more than two weeks off work for sickness this year. With that, snow, earthquakes and holidays I feel like I've been away from work for more time than I've been there!
  • I won the amazing prize of a 'Little Weathered Friend' journal from Bibliographica. Louise won a prize in my last giveaway, so that's pretty cool.

Awesome things

 Neat things I've treated myself to in the recent months:
  1. Emerge MMXI-II-XXII Brooch by Mudbird
    Such a clever way to make something beautiful from the cruddy silt from this year's earthquakes.
  2. Extra Curricular, issue 6 (which you can now also subscribe to)
    My copy should be on its way to me... can't wait to have a read.
  3. Tin of Super Cute Glossy Labels by Mixing Ink
    Perfect for anything!
  4. Mini Monster by Super Plush
    Just look at his little face!!! I can't get enough of him!

Winter holiday

Tomorrow I'm off on another wee holiday, this time down to one of my favourite places - Wanaka, for a week of wintry fun.

My Felt shop is now closed until Monday August 15th.

Have a great weekend and week everyone!
