Welcome to my world behind the scenes as I attempt to run a business with no idea what I am doing. I Love comments/ advice/opinions or just a quick G'day so please talk to me. I adore hearing/learning/chatting with you all so every comment is most welcome.!
Conflict-free is a product that can certify that it wasn't obtained through the use of violence. Fair trade is a system of trade where the workers receive a living wage for the goods they produce. Carbon-neutral is when greenhouse gas created during an item's production is then mitigated by planting trees. Think about giving back what you take. Upcycled is taking disposable items and transforming them into something of greater use and value. Aluminum and glass, for example, can usually be upcycled into the same quality of aluminum and glass as the original products. Post-consumerwaste products are used by one consumer, recycled and remade into another product. Think paper that has been recycled into new paper Source: Craig Minowa and the Sustainability Dictionary
Perfecting homemade Light studios in preparation for 100's of stock photos to be taken. Best toot ever on this is from here
Pondering, once again, on how to refashion this kids jumper from the Op shop. OK, now Im thinking lap top bag and matching phone sock.
Turning gross lanyard with texta all over it (Thanks master nunde)
into new lanyard. Fantastic, now I can find my keys again.
Hey this will match my cool, really bright laptop bag and phone sock!
And finally Saturday is for eating Bounty Chocolate Tartlets that miss nunde whipped up. Will provide recipe when I pry it from her greedy recipe hogging hands.
2 things I noted today. 1. Light studio works great as you can see with the pic of the kids jumper 2. Sewing machine lights need to be daylight bulbs, not the warm globes. Those globes are a killer on your eyes if you spend hours sewing. I now have a clip on daylight globe lamp to fix that.
I had the nicest break ever and although I did nothing special, I think it just felt great to get 2009 over with. I never liked you 2009. I found you a bit of a struggle creatively and barely was a bag designed, rubbish rescued or a cupcake created due to commitments elsewhere.
It is time to start again in 2010
Yep, there it is, my catchy mantra for new the year.
START AGEN IN TWO THOUSAND AND TEN
Bugger off 2009
It was 11.30 pm when I decided to prepare myself for the new year.
After a few minutes of that gruelling exercise I came back inside to blog about it, as one does when one is faced with stuff.
It is all pretty exciting stuff though. I have things to do this year. Me things..nunde things, not other things.
(This picture is a test to refer to as my skills at editing hopefully improve. wish you could smell these. They smell gorgeous)
Here is hoping for more peace in places that are in pieces,
