Wecome Spring! I have missed you. What Spring means to me.... inc Spring Vintage Bunting for Weddings

Spring means to me....

Being able to go outside more often - I can weed & potter for hours at a time in sun.
The beginning of new life and knowing that summer is on it's way.

Rising temperatures, and the rebirth of flora and fauna.
Green grass growing, blossoms are blooming and soon the flowers will be on their way.

It will soon be day light savings which means longer days.

It's also a popular time for outside celebrations such as garden parties, tea parties, BBQ's.

I have a range of vintage bunting available for such occasions.
is an easy way to brighten up your home in Spring or anytime of the year.
Beautiful fresh bunting, perfect to brighten up any space!
It can be reused for many happy occasions. Yay to that!


and Spring means Weddings!

Earlier this year, Camille from the Curlypops Shop made a callout for line artwork that could be used for a colouring book.
Cam is artist / illustrator, crafter, textile designer, blogger and a double lung transplant recipient.

 Breathing to a New Beat - A Colouring Book for Adults is available for purchase.

Time to time I have donated something I have made to a charity.
I was happy to donate a line drawing.

Camille came up with the idea of a colouring Book for Adults with 100% of the profits going to Heart and Lung Transplant Trust (Victoria) Inc

I donated an a4 page of Russian Doll Babushkas', yes, my own original artwork!
It's wonderful to be able to contribute to such a worthy cause.
The artwork was created in Adobe Illustrator.

Many other wonderful artists have contributed creative artwork in their own unique style, for the book.
The final result is amazing.
also.....Thanks to Cam for all of her hard work.

Coloring books are a way for adults who don't normally draw or paint to be creative

"Some of Australia's biggest companies are buying colouring books for adults in bulk to help staff handle the stress of the modern workplace.
Amid claims that Australia is facing a mental health epidemic, Melbourne neuropsychologist Stan Rodski says the simple act of colouring can change brain behaviour and help workers achieve calm and balance".

The latest news is that profit from sales has just hit $5,000! Yay!
"This money will go directly to the Second Chance Accommodation Project which subsidises the cost of post transplant accommodation for country Victorian and interstate heart and lung transplant recipients at the Alfred Hospital in Melbourne"

You only have to head over to instagram to see a great range of coloured pages.
Both here: #breathingtoanewbeat  and here:  #btanbcolouralong
