I have seen her new website and love it! I did love the blog too and I liked seeing pics of stuff she had found in her own blogging, but respect the way she is headed!
Re the amazing magnetic wallpaper, looks GREAT! I heard though that the magnetic paint (which is also available(!!)) doesn't hold much weight, so it has made me a bit wary of the magnetic wallpaper. If I am going to get any wallpaper, it is some beautiful, rich wallpaper to do underneath the kitchen counter with. mmmm....Bryon Bay was great. We went to the bead shop in the art and craft estate and I went bead crazy- see attached pic. Doesn't look like much, but that was, heartstoppingly, $103.50 worth of beads. Who knew all of those pretty little beads could cost so much! It can be justified easily though- they will make good gifts, I won't need to buy any new jewellery (sp?!) for a while and um... well they will keep me busy!
I just got home, put some veges in the steamer- broc, squash, mushrooms and corn and am going to have a glass of red and some veges and get bead busy.
Love you lot's.. sj

So, what have I been working on? Well, there is the bedroom, but I am 'this close' to finishing it, so I will keep you in suspense I bit longer on that one. But most of my time has been taken up lately with printing jumpers and t-shirts, and working on the magazine. Both very exciting!!!
I am keen to get Flo&Jo happening, as once I have all the clothes up on Etsy, it should take care of itself. I just need to finish a couple more designs and I can get it going. I want to have all of them ready before I start selling, to get maximum exposure.
On the weekend, I did two new designs and printed them on the organic cotton tshirts I received during the week. What do you think? Behind the butterfly one are my labels that I printed up on cream cotton. I am going to hand sew these into the clothes. I love them!!
These are some of the jumpers I've done.
On the magazine front, things are coming along nicely. We've nearly completed the media kit, so we can start sending that out to potential advertisers. I've also written a column, which I will share with you in a more private sphere. I think we should have the mag ready for distribution by Easter! Yippeeee!!
Hope you are having a relaxing evening. I'm off for a few drinks at Olga's place with the girls.

The good thing is that these things are cheap to buy and find! I have started trawling thrift shops and garage sales already! Whoever said I had champagne taste can eat their words. Only half of them though as I do have a beer budget.
Car Port- We are going to turn this into an undercover area. Johns tools are all currently in the magna, which needs to go to the wreckers. Once we have built a tool shed under the house, moved the tools in there, taken the empty magna to the wreckers, we will be able to start on the carport.
