The 212 glass jam jars I ordered arrived about an hour ago, and I already have two pots of Strawberry Jam bubbling away.

(Just in case you were wondering what I’m going to be spending the next few months doing)

Right now they’re making quite an excellent blockade for our front door.  I’ll have to work our a better place to put them before the Mr gets home tonight.

I’ll be selling jars full of Jam and Relish this holiday season – stay tuned for more information!

Suitcase love September 28, 2010

I picked up this suitcase this morning from Reverse Garbage in Taylor Square.  The perfect shade of blue, and just the right size.  Small enough for carry-on, but large enough to be useful for storage when I’m not jet-setting around the world.  This little beauty set me back the grand total for $8.  A total bargain!

I also came home with a pile of upholstery fabric to use for the backs of some new Picnic Blankets.  I’m going to be making them again this year to sell for Christmas.  Watch this space!

My sweet, supportive, totally awesome friend Reenie got engaged to her man Daniel recently.  Yay!

This is what I made for them as an engagement present – a picnic blanket embroidered with their names.  I was going to stitch a heart around the text but decided to leave it more subtle.

Congratulations Reenie and Dan!  Here’s to many happy days in the sunshine together!

Yesterday I headed down to Cronulla with my Saponify goodies for the 4th Allie’s Attic handmade market.

Allie also did a lovely little write up of Saponify products on her blog.

I’ll be updating the website in the next couple of days with some new products so stay tuned!

I hope everyone that took home some of my handmade goodies enjoys using them!

Rosa-May wanted to know what I wanted for my birthday this year, and I asked her to draw something for me.

I cried when I opened this on the night.  So special.

I sanded back an old blue frame and repainted it brown last week.  I love it!

(In case you’re wondering, it’s supposed to be the Mr and I).  So sweet!

My sweet amazing friend Rosa-May is heading back to New Zealand to live.  I am sad for me, but happy for her.  She and her beau Bruce just got engaged and I’m so very happy for them!

I am going to miss her so much, only people who know this girl can really understand how much fun can be had whilst in her company.

We met at the Cafe I used to work at.  This friendship is the very best thing to come out of my two years of employment there.

Hands down, she’s one of the best people that I have ever met.  She’s a gem.

Rosa-May and her sister Stella are both incredibly talented artists, and have started an online business together selling their stationery.  Beautiful.  I’d highly recommend that you consider their wares if you’re needing a unique lovely gift.
