Koobled

Mainichi has been written up over at Koobly. I'm amazed how bloggers glean information from the web and the way in which it is re-presented (ie. not entirely accurately!). And being referred to as "Herrenberg" reminds me of my third year university days - my design lecturer used to refer to me that way, I think just to try to rile me. It just made me giggle!!

All things aside, Koobly features cool, independent design sourced from across the interweb....sure is some nice company to be hangin' with over there!

One Week

The reason for my absence of late - this little angel, born one week ago, at home, in water......I know it's not related to craft, jewellery or design, but she certainly is one of my proudest creations. x

Project Doll - Finito

Been promising myself for weeks I would take a photo of the completed doll made for my boy and finished many weeks back. Well, finally here he is in his clothed glory. He is much loved as you will see below, and resides in the bed most of the time (what a life!). Plans are afoot for making him some pyjamas and other attire to extend his wardrobe a little.
I had such fun making this, it really was a challenge, especially for hands affected by pins and needles thanks to pregnancy.....so another is planned for the little one gestating (still) at present. If you'd like a kit to make your own formed doll, then I highly recommend those sold by the lovely Shelley at Little Sparrow.

Fashion forward....

Mainichi photos keep popping up all over the web. Today you can see the lovely Esther sporting some Shinzo necklaces on the home page over at Agenda Melbourne, and read a great write up about last Friday's event with the City of Port Phillip "Future Fashion Now".

Apparently FFN was very successful with over 500 people visiting the St Kilda Town Hall to see sustainable fashion in action.

Milk Thieves - MOVED!

The lovely Emma-Lee Crane of Mainichi stockist "Milk Thieves" in Wollongong (I never remember how to spell that....too many oooo's or too many lllll's) has moved shop.  If you are in the vicinity call in and say hi......

Saving incentive

How cool are these Addi+ion money boxes? I'm a little biased because they have been designed by one of my old Industrial Design mates from Uni, Neil Davidson. I want one of these......
Addi+ion is just one of the concept designs produced via rapid prototyping for Artisan's exhibition "Capital Growth - The Piggy Bank Project", currently showing in Fortitude Valley until 2 July. For more information visit their website.

Cardboard

....boxes always come in handy around here after unpacking....although they tend to live out their welcome!
