High Tea, Handmade Living Book Launch & Give Away at Daltons

As part of the Handmade Living events, the fabulous Handmade team orchestrated the book launch this morning at Daltons Book Store in Civic, Canberra.

A selection of the contributors to the book (including moi) displayed their creations alongside a very delicious spread of cupcakes and nibbles - you can see Mikaela, who makes beautiful accessories using Japanese origami papers in the background.

The other clever people also in the book at the launch were:
Posy Patchwork - who makes wonderful things from fabric. I just love her doorstops.
Poppy Bean and Bloss - also makes wonderful things from fabrics, including journal covers
Tiny Concept - delightful wares, including the Parisian Pillow (pg 43 of the book which I just adore). A big congratulations to her, as one of her handmade dolls features in a film!
Polbymade - makes lovely japanese inspired garments using exquisite fabrics from Japan.
Highland Habitat - Naomi makes gorgeous lotions and potions from natural ingredients.
Real Chai - kept us hydrated with delicious chai made from real ingredients

I ran a giveaway for the above cups, hand baked ginger snaps and Kate Ward Design 'Ooh La La' tea towel (valued at over $50)...... the winner of the prize was Debbie Campbell.

Congratulations Debbie!

And a big thank you to the Handmade team for such a lovely way to start a Sunday morning. It was a fabulous opportunity to meet other creatives x
