The update...

Hello folks! I know its been a while. I have been having a world of trouble with our Internet service. Sheesh! I wouldn't even know where to start telling you about it so I am just not going to bother. Its all boring anyway. What hasn't been boring, however, are the events that have taken place whilst I have been offline.  Its funny that without the Internet I have been both lost and found, if you know what I mean?? It has been pretty tough on the business side of things. Not being able to access Etsy/Emails/Facebook/etc had made it nearly impossible to get the info I needed to get started on making orders. We are finally up and running again. I have finished cutting my final custom orders, so now I can get on with the making despite my crummy Internet service. I should have these last orders finished within the next 5 days, leaving me free and easy to get creative again!

I am planning a market night in the coming weeks and I am so excited to share some of my new creations with you. I have a handful of one-of-a-kind dresses that are already finished and a few new styles that I will be throwing into the ring. Lately I have been making cute little summer dresses with gorgeous low-scooped necklines and short sleeves, playing with barkcloth, experimenting with ruffles and having lots of fun in the process.

I have a big thank you to send out to miss Tanya Collier. Last Friday I received my 'tickle the imagination' magazine in the post, as I am sure many of you did too. I was so impressed!! What a beautiful magazine. I am so incredibly honored to have been included in its first issue. I love being a part of this handmade community and this publication is such an amazing showcase of talented and inspirational people. If you haven't seen it yet, go find yourself a copy! Its a keeper. Tanya, what a wonderful job you have done putting this together. You must be so proud. Bravo.

I feel I have much more to share with you, but I don't really want to bombard you with an essay on what has been keeping me busy for three weeks. Soon I will have pictures from my little sisters wedding to show you... I have a few D.I.Y's up my sleeve... Then there are the Christmas decorations to show off... And of course I will have to do a show and tell of my latest op-shop scores.... And then I have my latest dresses for the market.... You get the picture.

I hope you have all been well and happy and wonderful and safe. What have I missed?? Clue me in if there is anything special to report. Thanks. Bec x


  1. There's a lot to look forward to in your coming posts. I especially can't wait to see your latest designs.
    Zara from Zaranne Handmade mentioned the 'tickle the immagination' mag. I had a squizz and loved the look of it so I ordered a copy. I can't wait for it to arrive. Congratulations for being part of it.
    Hope the internet behaves itself. :)

  2. I look forward to reading your blog and seeing your amazing dresses, taking me back to when I was a little girls and my Mum made me the most beautiful dresses in similar designs, keep up the great work.

  3. It is such a lovely little magazine, your little article is wonderful.
    I like the sound of these new short sleeved scooped neckline dresses.

  4. wow! you certainly have been busy. Every time I travel, I lose my constant connection with my blog, Facebook, Instagram, etc. and although it's nerve wracking at times, it's also LIBERATING!

  5. I was suggested this blog by my cousin. I am not sure whether this post is written by
    him as no one else know such detailed about my problem.
    You are amazing! Thanks!
