New things to play with!

Look what the Australia Post man delivered this morning! A box!



I was perplexed as to what it was because I have been trying to be very good with my online purchases lately. I got so excited when I opened it up and I saw what it was ..



I was very excited when these arrived ... little buttons to sell at my Northside Makers Market stall on th 10th of October ... Jennie from Mrs Beckinsale made a point a while back that every stall should have "pocket money items" things that little kids can buy for $1 or $2 ...



When I ordered 100 I thought that would be a lot! But looking at them now, there really isn't that much! I oohed and ahhed about how to actually do buttons. Sticky Institute in Melbourne has a service where you can go in there and use their badge maker, but I would need to find the time to actually go in there. Or I could hire one and spend all weekend making badges, but then I wouldn't be sewing or blogging. So, I ended up engaging the services of KungFuCowgirl on etsy to make them up for me. Very happy with the result and delivery time.



KungFuCowGirl also made me some sample fridge magnets!


They look fabulous on my fridge ... next to all of my photo's!



Look how young I look there! I really have had long hair for far too long!

I'll have to make a few sets up for my etsy store, just deciding which ones to put together!

I didn't get any fridge magnets made ... they are all on my fridge at the moment.
Still thinking about packaging and which designs I put together ... any comments welcome!
