30 Before 30 - #26 Coffee

Some people find it really hard to believe that I don't drink coffee (or tea (except for fruity/herbal ones) for that matter). I hate the smell of coffee and from the few sips I'd tasted, pretty much knew I hated the taste of it too. Even though I used to work in a cafe/bar with a coffee machine (making them all day) I'd never downed a whole cup, so I put it on my 30 Before 30 list to at least give it a chance. 

And you know what... I hated it. It's bitter and gross. I'm glad I had a yummy juice to wash it down!

And that's about all I have to say about the experience.  Now that it's done, I never have to drink it again, hooray!

Clever Sisters

I met heaps of lovely customers and some awesome crafty people at Spring Encraftment last weekend. Among the stall-holders that I (very briefly) met, were twin sisters Christie and Megan.

Christie, aka ChristieBell Designs makes those sweet glass bottle necklaces. That wee fox and mushroom with a caterpillar (as well as cool birds nests), are handmade from polymer clay and carefully placed inside the tiny vials. I love them and can't stop thinking about them - I really should have bought one at the market...

And Megan, aka Sly Fox Jewellery makes those funky rings (among other beauties), with illustrations from UK based designer InkFive.

Sweet eh? Very clever girls!
