Bursting with excitement

Excuses, excuses I know! It has been months since I have done anything pretty enough to post, but I think being 37 weeks pregnant gets me somewhat off the hook :) Christmas is days away, and now the nursery is almost organised, I found some time to make sets of Christmas cards and gift tags from a mish-mash of old patterns.

Wish me luck for the next few weeks, I am literally BURSTING with excitement to meet our little boy. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Fancy doodles

You know, it only took a few months but we are now hooked up with wireless internet at home so I am on-line all over the show. Favourite spot is front porch lounge with a cup of hot soy milk. Also means I am trying to "multi-task" : emails, blog updates, making obstetrician appointments, scheduling yoga classes, writing design classes, patting Mr. Moko and doodling all at once. Who says pregnancy makes you forgetful? Mind you, all I really do all day is draw fancy doodles, here's a nice one on a wood box I made for my lovely husband. Anyone want a doodle? Just come over for a cuppa, apple and cinnamon scrolls heartily accepted as payment!

The cat is out of the bag...

I know I promised 'more bags soon' but the only bag I have in mind right now has kittens and bows and storks all over it...yes...being a little under the weather in my last post turned out to be a more than we thought! Instead of inflicting upon you mushy baby-brained prints I am digging through my archive, here's a pretty little thing I did some time ago. Perhaps a bit too mature for a newborn but sweet and calm, unlike my swelling belly these days.

So I am taking a break from production for a while, concentrating on teaching until the end of the year. Will probably have super-sugary-sweet-as-pie designs for baby pouring out of my already forgetful brain in no time...please ignore any oddities between now and January...and probably even more oddities after that!

Chive {hearts} Parsley 4eva

Easter has come and gone, seems like summer will never end in the west... sweet summer romances still lingering in the air. A good time to finish off bits and pieces while off from teaching for a week - four new shops to explore and a few limited edition purses and pencil cases in Chive and Parsley available from Sedonia (Seddon, VIC) this week. Check stockist websites above.

Ipanema dreaming

Apologies for the absence in updates of new work. As proof I haven't been in Ipanema cruising the beaches (not mentioning anyone I am stupendously jealous of right now!) I'm going to show off my newly set-up studio that I am totally in luuurrve with.

We have ornate windows to keep an eye on my pussycat through, and a cute native garden. The
prettiest deco style ceiling and room for my bike! Super all round.

Righto, back to the cutting table.

More stock arriving in Freo soon and few new stockists in Vic, QLD and Tas coming in the next few weeks so I'll keep you posted where!
