I’m counting down the days until I go on holiday… only six more sleeps. Woohoo! So until then I have decided to discount everything* in my Etsy store, just use the code HOORAY25 at the checkout to get 25% off. But you only have until Tuesday the 10th of December to get your orders in. Happy Friday everyone
*While stocks last. Custom maps require one week to produce, 25% discount still applies but the map will not be mailed until early in 2014.
This week I have been printing cards for the Etsy Christmas pop-up in Sydney. It was also a friend’s first wedding anniversary recently and as the traditional gift for a first anniversary is paper, I decided to use one of the designs from my cards and alter it to make print that could be framed. The print is of two geometric hearts printed in copper and is part of a limited edition of 10 prints. I have listed the rest of the prints in my Etsy store if you would like one for yourself or somebody special. Happy Friday everyone
Have you heard about the Etsy Christmas Pop-Up happening in Sydney this year? Well it’s almost here! I am very excited to have been invited to participate in this event and can’t wait to head in to the city and check it out. The doors open on Thursday November 28th, allowing people to see and purchase some of the hand-made goodness and one-of-a-kind gifts that Etsy Australia has to offer! Open until the 12th of December, the Pop-Up will feature workshops and demonstrations with local Etsy sellers, plus loads of other exciting events.

Thursday evening was the official opening of The Charming Collective annual show. Print makers and art lovers came together to celebrate printmaking and view work by Nic Bailey, Simon Clarke, Rebecca Geddes, Laura Giamo, Jessica Hodgkinson, Ian Kingsford Smith, Gabrielle Mordy, Sam Newton, David Quoy, Marnie Ross, Anna Russell, Cam Scott and myself.
The Charming Collective would like to thank Art Est. Art School and Gallery for their support. Rebecca Geddes and Mahani Del Borrello would like to acknowledge ARC @ UNSW for their support via an Art and Design Grant.
I was having a clean up the other day and came across some prints I started a while ago that I never finished. Do you remember the Christmas cards I made last year? Well I used one of the designs to screenprint some larger prints, but they kind of sat there for a while and I wasn’t sure what to with them and I lost interest (or inspiration). So, sitting at home on a rainy Sydney Saturday and with Christmas around the corner I decided to chop them up and make some more cards. It seems this design was always destined to be festive. I hope you are also having a crafty and creative weekend
I’ve been a.w.o.l. again… sorry! For most of this semester I have been feeling like I’ve hardly had time to breathe, let alone blog! But I am finally catching up, woohoo! One of the many things that has kept me so occupied lately is The Charming Collective, a group of super friendly, Sydney printmakers. To celebrate another year of printmaking, the Collective are holding an exhibition. The show opens this Friday at Art Est. in Leichardt and runs for just over two weeks. A few of the members are holding monotype and drypoint workshops on the weekend so if you are interested in printmaking check it out. Opening night is the 21st of November, so come see some art and say hi, we would love to see you there
