Getting ready for Spring

Well the past few weeks have been a bit of a blur. The exhibition went really well. I sold quite a few things, among them The Follicle Painting *sigh*. All in all it was a fantastic experience and it has inspired me to get a wriggle on for Spring.
Over the past few months I've had to put my shop on hold as Hubby needed to amend our DA for a business he's starting up. I've had to wait until the amendment was approved and as such, had to close. The good news is that the approval has finally come through. The bad news is that in my hiatus, the shop is rather messy. I need to get stuck into it today and set up these little treats...... 

It's all about earrings!!!

I've also been sewing up some neckpieces out of old ties. I've seen quite a few of them on Etsy and thought I'd give them a go. They're super easy to make and are a nice alternative to a scarf. The ties only cost me 50 cents each from Vinnies and I stitched them up whilst watching movies. If however you're not wanting to make your own,  go have a peek at Alisa Neweys website "Ties and Whimsy". Apart from having a FANTASTIC name, her tie creations are amazeballs.

This one is waiting for embellishment however I wore it the other day with a brooch

My "cooey" pose. I'm calling out for Spring to hurry the bloody hell up! If the wattle and daffies are in bloom, it's supposed to come soon right?

I best be off now. The sun is shining and my sheets need a drying.

Enjoy your day!

Your neckpiece is so interesting and looks fab with your outift. I have seen a few collary type things areound lately and think they're very nice.
I'm so pleased your show went well. I have been wondering actually, but haven't got off my butt to email you. Whoops.
Anyway, nice to see you today :)

What a lovely update Alisa. Your neckpieces look gorgeous, what a great idea. Your jewellery is amazing too, as always. There's nothing like spring, for some inspiration! I look forward to seeing more of your beautiful creations
