Well spring has sprung however the fire is still burning away, we've had only had a few warm mornings so far. The cooler days hasn't stopped the wild flowers around East Gippsland bloom, the most beautiful show of colour as the bush becomes technicolour.
We've had a busy month, finalising the last bits and bobs from Dave's workshop in Sydney and the trips back and forth definitely took their toll. But it didn't take to long to recover and get back to work. A busy time designing new toys and working out what toys we'd like to create for the upcoming Christmas season. The first on our list were puzzles, we really wanted to expand our range and be able to offer a larger selection. I absolutely love creating these; working with colour and creating little peggy worlds. I have more in my sketch book to bring to life, but these new designs will definitely be a lovely addition to our spring market tables.
We'll be introducing our new jigsaw puzzles to our online shops towards the end of September, so if you're interested in ordering one keep a lookout for their listings in the next few weeks.
Last weekend we attended Bairnsdale Makers Market for the first time. What a delightful market filled with true handmade passion. Dave and I really enjoyed getting to meet other stallholders as well as the local community who came to support local makers. East Gippsland is a treasure trove of creators and everyone has been so welcoming to us. We look forward to attending this wonderful little market in the future.
The rest of September will be flat chat for us. We'll be at Metung Farmers market next weekend on Saturday 9th followed by the always amazing Handmade Canberra on the 16th & 17th. I'll be popping up more details about those coming markets on our Facebook pages and Instagram. We'll also be adding our upcoming market dates to our News page.
