1. very exciting news! i am now stocking my brooches at gorman! about two weeks ago i met with the lovely ladies there and they chose a range of 5 brooches to stock in gorman stores throughout australia. they ordered 267 pieces and i set myself the somewhat mental task of completing them all in a week. and, yes, it was a busy, busy week of late nights and early mornings but it was all worth it in the end to have a dream come true and have my work in one of my very favourite australian stores. please pop in and have a look!

2. on the same day that i met with gorman i received an email from the lovely milly at craft victoria, asking if i could pop in to see if they might like to stock my work! all went well and i am now stocked at craft victoria too! they have a range of my brooches as well as a range of my fimo chain necklaces. every time i go in there i get stuck for ages drooling (figuratively) over all of their beautiful things. thank you again craft vic ladies! you are so very lovely and fabulously supportive!
3. i participated in two markets - the bikefest craft hatch market at 1000 pound bend, as well as a group stall for RMIT textiles at the design market last sunday. both went really well and i bought some pretty cool goodies that i will post about later on.
