More Crayon Wallets!

Though I'm madly preparing for market madness over the next few weeks, I thought I should share some of the fruit of my efforts... These are some of the new Crayon Wallets, currently only available at markets or through Shop Handmade in Canberra.  I've been wanting to list these online but am struggling to find enough hours in the day to sew up stock, let alone photograph products, edit and list them.  So, until I find those elusive extra hours in the day, you can pick one up at a market or email me if you can't get to a market and I'll make a special listing for you!!  

The Crayon Wallets are fantastic for keeping little fingers busy and creative juices flowing while waiting for meals at restaurants, in doctors' surgeries, while a sibling plays sport/has a lesson... or to keep them occupied while mummy (or daddy!) writes a blog post 'works' on the computer. They retail for $25 (postage extra) and come with an A6 blank notepad and eight Crayola crayons. Inside the wallet there are slots for the crayons, a pocket for the notepad and another pocket for completed masterpieces, they fold into thirds and close with an elastic over a button.  I already have a mental list of which ones are destined for some of our friends having birthdays over the next few weeks!  Oh, and FYI, A6 is a quarter of an A4 sheet!

For The Love Of Handmade :: Jewellery & Accessories

Have you begun your Christmas shopping yet? I'm usually almost finished by this time of year, but not this year.  With markets galore to prepare for I'm a tad snowed under and struggling to get through my list of people to buy for.  Thank goodness for online shopping though,  and the ease of buying from home, as each week it gets more difficult to drag my boys through shops without caving to the requests for milkshakes, donuts, lollipops etc just to keep them quiet!!  At this rate I'm worried they'll end up obese by the New Year...  So I've been doing a bit of browsing and want to share some special finds from madeit.  This week it's all about jewellery & accessories - the perfect finishing touches for your Christmas functions!
