I'm still here!

Okay.. So I’ve been missing in action for quite a while now and I have to admit that I have been really busy with other design work for the past month or so. Its super good news for my other business, but BAD news for the uuber creative side of me.
I also need to say that my debut at the Rosemary Manor Market went poo and I was so, so disappointed!! If only I had the skills and the time to market Lime Green Bean properly! In the mean time, you should really check out their FAB new website..
Anywho.. I’m picking myself up and looking forward. I’m not totally out of my creative slump, (or lack thereof) and I am going to use this blog to display things I love, and things that I l want and things that make me happy! Like shopping (well at least with my eyes for now) sewing, gardening, baking, being creative and just being ME! So there!
Plus, I was so so happy to see that I have my very first follower! Well, Juanita.. you REALLY made my day.. no my YEAR!! THANK YOU!!!
So I actually sort of finished a painting that I have been working on since last year, and I’m so glad I worked on it a bit. Painting, much like ice cream with sprinkles.. are one of those small things that make me happy!

My Protea. Acrylic on canvas. Size approx 90cm x 120 cm. A work in progress..

Have a great day now!

Getting Ready for the Market!

I have been so so busy sewing up a storm to get everything done for the Market on Friday (My first real market! YAY!) .. and to make matters worse on Friday I had the most brilliant idea to create a kit where people can make their own brooch / pin.. so.. I have made a ton of these little "Bean Buddies" to include in the market..


Here are some of the new "Bean Buddies"


More "Bean Buddies"

Cutting Labels...

The Idea is that people can create their own personality for their Bean Buddy. The kit comes with everything you need to create one, as well as some cool ideas for different personalities!

It's SO easy-peasy to make - even kids can make them and its pretty fun too!!

Here they are! Some samples for the market to give people ideas!

Here are all the goodies I will be taking to the market people tomorrow..

Lots of goodies!

All packaged and ready to go!

I know it may not seem like a great deal of stock.. but considering it takes up to 40 min (with "skilled hands" heehee) to just make 1.. yes ONE felt cup cake for example, you can imagine how many hours of love went into these goodies..

So wish me luck and lets hope we make many sales, and many little people happy!!

Oh yes, and before I forget.. all these goodies are available for sale on my website:  Happy Day!

So here are a whole bunch of patterns that need to be cut out.. and as usual..

Ivana has taken my seat!
