New Etsy Adelaide team!

I am happy to announce that I am a member of the all new 'Etsy Adelaide' team. For those of you who don't know, Adelaide is my hometown in South Australia. Although I'm a member of the larger Australian 'Dust' team on Etsy, it's so good to be part of a local team. I can network with this team and actually meet these people face to face! So far, Etsy Adelaide has 111 members! Yep, there's a lot of creative talent in Adelaide.
Here's a sampler of what can be purchased out of Adelaide on Etsy. This treasury was curated by Vanessa Stephens. Enjoy, and leave a comment if you can.

Romantics & Dreamers

 It's treasury time again! I've been featured in so many Etsy treasuries, it's hard for me to keep up. They're all beautifully curated, but this one would have to be my favorite. Nothing says romance more than deep reds and chocolatey browns. You can view individual items in more detail here.

This treasury was put together by fellow Etsy shop owner ArtfulTrinkets1 from Australia. Visit her lovely jewellery shop if you get a chance. Below is a sample of her beautiful work. See more here: ArtfulTrinkets1

Sneak peek - Life's Journey

Hello there, I'm currently working on some new digital collages inspired by a beautiful range of paper designs I purchased last year. I've kept with the square format and was influenced by the title of the paper range 'Life's Journey.' I've also included vintage illustrations and textures from my own collection. These collages will appear in my Etsy shop soon as prints and perhaps blank note cards. I love working with patterns and colors - they bring out the designer in me! I'm really enjoying creating these.
