Well well well, we have arrived at Week 15.
265 cups of coffee consumed. 265 photos taken and 530 cranes folded!
Still on track to make it to 1000 in one year. So that is pretty exciting.
This week I explored different materials to fold cranes with, mostly Easter egg foil, which can be a little bit of a challenge but fun nevertheless. In the photos I used a lot of different fabrics and food to create backgrounds. From t-shirts to doughnuts.
This weekend I attended Flinders st Market which is quickly becoming one of my favourite markets. Just because I love the uniqueness of the market and the stall holders, but mostly because I am making some wonderful friends.
(260) Live your Dream - Really Useful Pots,(fb page) was next door to me at this market and Susanna is fabulous. When she returns from her holidays we are going to collaborate on some fantastically fun projects, so stay tune! Make sure you check out all of her Really Useful Pots! (website)
We also met Shane, but my Mum brought him over to my stall so it was a little bit amiss of me, but I am not sure what he sells, besides Dr John Tickell's books. I will find out. Then there was Ama and Phil from The Coco Stop. Featured in (262) Pop Rock Chocolate, it is so tasty and fun. We also had some white chocolate and dried strawberry. YUM!
On Sunday we attended the Market on Oaklands at the Marion Leisure Centre.
This is a great market in a massive stadium with plenty of parking. I met some great people here and will be back next month.
Pretty, Henna Tattoo (265) is the arm of the lovely Deepa, who has just started visiting markets to decorating the visitors with beautiful Henna Tattoos, she also does eyebrow threading and nails and will have a fb/website shortly.
I am attempting to create a regular structure through the autumn and winter months with my market stalls. So far this is where I will be
The Second Sunday of the month I will be at Meadows Country Market
The Third Sunday of the month I will be at Market on Oakland
The Fourth weekend of the month I will be at Flinders St
(still deciding on sat or sun or both)
I have yet to secure a Market for the first weekend, I am looking at Blackwood and/or Uraidla. So nothing for this weekend I am needing a rest after a couple of busy weekends.
Remember it is Mother's Day Shortly. And if you are in need of a unique gift. I can create a wonderful drawing for your mum. (If you are quick.) I also have fantastic blank art greeting cards of all my art. Or you can grab a gift voucher to whatever value you like, for mum, from me, so she can choose the masterpiece she wants.
Until next week may all your cups be delicious and all your cranes fly free. Make sure you register your email if you found a little bit of luck (a crane) or would like to attend the exhibition in approx 1 years time. Register here.
If you have found one of these cranes please keep it for approximately one year, register your email address HERE and I will send you an invite to the opening night of the exhibition. In which I will ask you to bring the crane back so it can be placed into an artwork at the exhibition.
