My Creative Space 'i'm going to a mega VIP Shop launch' & this is sneak peek!!
Welcome to a mega Creative Space this week, a little bit of me & a whole lot of super clever people from around handmade Australia who you'll find at Shop Handmade, which opens on Friday in the heart of Canberra. The VIP launch is tonight (Thursday) & i'm not sure if i'm more excited about putting on those sky high peep toes i bought last month, make up, jewellery & a frock or meeting these amazing designers & media types!! Goodness, a night out, of the house, without the children. You know i can go months without even using headlights on the car - such is my exciting night life when my husband is away.
I have always LOVED making penny wheels/ yo yos & put them on everything from cushions & quilts to headbands & brooches!! At Shop Handmade you basically lease a shelf/ table top/ rack/ counter space/ wall - or if you're a hog like me . . . an entire wardrobe, the Shop girls display & sell your goodies & you get 100% of the sales. For me it's like doing a weekly market without the time away from family, hiring a babysitter, set up/ market/ pack up/ unpack . . . plus the benefit of your goodies not being stored & dragged around market to market.
I took a sneak peek at the Shop today while dropping off the dressing room curtains i made (image next week - note the beautiful red wall paper - that is inside a change room, goodness it's beautiful) & sit back, relax & enjoy the eye candy . . .
There is a BUZZ coming from in here & the Shop is on a fabulous strip called City Walk which is basically a flood of public servants all day . . . find us between the Canberra Centre (Myer Corner) & the Casino. I'd recommend you park on the street where there is lots of meter parking around Glebe Park or at the Canberra Centre & trot across the road. Enjoy & happy Creative Spacing . . . i'm pooped, with 5-9 children at my place each day these school holidays, i'm pretty impressed with my output this week so far, not to mention lots of happy & well entertained children.
