What's next?

Well, our Inspiration Avenue auction is over for another year, and we're all sitting back with our feet up and having a well-deserved cup of tea!! 

The formal tallying-up is still in progress, but I believe we've raised around the $500 mark (all proceeds will be donated to the charity Angel Faces).

Meanwhile (as they say in the films) I've been busy with commissions, including these wooden perpetual calendars. 

These are going to be birthday gifts for two little girls. My brief was "one with a cupcake, one with butterflies, and don't hold back on the pink!"
These are both hand-painted and collaged. The cupcake calendar features some tiny heart shaped buttons, a ribbon bow, and little metallic heart shaped sequins as cupcake sprinkles!
 The butterflies calendar also has some teeny buttons in the centre of some of the flowers. Both have the girls' names across the bottom :)
Once I'm up-to-date with my commission work (hey I'm getting there - 2 down, 6 to go!), I may add these to my etsy shop as a "made-to-order" item. 

What's on your to-do list this week?


  1. Commissions are a wonderful thing Angie! It's great to be loved...and they do with good reason. These calenders are perfectly fab. You know what I'm doing??? Visiting blogs and thinking to myself "Now why didn't I think of that"
    I have some blocks...I have something totally different in mind for them...But you have a knack for what people love :+)

  2. Those are so pretty and a great gift idea x
