shop closing dates...

Hey there! My madeit online shop is going to be closed from Tuesday 1st June and re-opening on Tuesday 22nd June. I won't be at the upcoming handmade market in Canberra either. Boo!

Sorry folks - this post originally said Weds 2nd June but due to the amount of orders I need to complete before I depart for a while I'm having to close up tonight (Tuesday) instead! Arghh! Sorry!

...a spot of music

Okey-dokey it's definitely time for a break so I'm grabbing a cup of tea and a kitkat (sorry I mean a timtam) and listening to this lovely tune by my pretty darn talented friend Laura J Martin. She plays about a gazillion instruments (including kazoo obviously), sings and self-produces. I LOVE this song!! What do you think??

P.S. This is her 2nd single and it's released on the 24th May. More info, songs and vids here (myspace) and here (facebook).

Random pics of home...

Believe it or not I've been missing Blighty a bit recently. Crackers huh?! But I was lucky to live in a very beautiful part of the country. It was all (still is) very Wuthering Heights. I think some people found it quite bleak and the weather didn't help! Most days it was blowing a gale and raining (or snowing!) and full waterproofs and wellies were required just to make it down our cobbled path to the car (I'm not exaggerating here!). Still, it is a pretty beautiful spot.
