drawing ideas for new bearded men. It's a surprise.

planning on starting after-school sewing classes

missing my family. after 4 weeks together, you kinda get used to the constant chaos and being surrounded by love.

happy last-day-of-winter (or last-day-of-summer, depending on where you are!)


blog love- upon a fold

(all images from the shop)

A collection of paper art, supplies, books, and general paper-y goodness. The blog has lovely photos and stories and a list of extraordinary paper artists, and the shop is drool-worthy; you can find out more about it all here. What a lovely place to visit.

Justine & Matt,

you rock my blog world.

wanted: crafty sewer assistant

Hi!I need an assistant!

My stockists are growing, and I need to step away from the sewing machine to design new ranges. I am looking for a crafty sewer/ sewing machinist to work with me in my sewing studio, mostly sewing but may be some cutting, stuffing and finishing. You need to be pretty quick, and we can chat about payment per piece or per hour. Suitable for a friendly, creative type with just a few hours a week to start (good for mums too).

Please note that you would be hired as a contractor, not an employee, so you may need an abn (but that's pretty easy); and I'm in Brisbane, so you'll need to live close by. If you're on my blog, you probably already know what I do, but you can see more here.

If you have any questions, or would like to meet for a cup of tea and a chat, drop me a line at pepperstitches(at)yahoo(dot)com; and if you know of anyone who might be interested, please pass this along! That would be ace!

vegemite and naps

(bought this mug in a thrift store in Vancouver. makes me giggle)

Phew! I'm back!

Oh the things I have seen, the places I've been. I cannot hardly even start to think about where I would start to begin. I have gazillions of photos to show you, but I will try to narrow it down to a few. hundred. Canada was incredible, Denmark was gorgeous, my family rocks (and we didn't kill each other! hooray!) and I am sleepy.

For now I am enjoying vegemite on toast more than I ever imagined I would (who knew?) and taking naps at strange times as my body catches up to this timezone. And listening to magpies in the mornings as I write more lists and rearrange my studio.
