I stumbled across something exciting and interesting tonight on Twitter called 30 Days of Creativity.

30 Days of Creativity is a social initiative encouraging people to create stuff (anything) every day for 30 days in June.  Your brain is like a muscle. When you exercise it, it gets stronger.

After a hectic month, I have decided my creative brain needs a workout and so I am going to pledge 30 Days of Creativity! Will be a challenge for me but I will keep you posted on the results at the end of each week 🙂 Wish me luck!

I recently had the pleasure of customising one of my favourite banner designs for Cat from Catilla. Cat designs gorgeous nature inspired jewellery that consists of many earthy components such as twigs, trees, branches, flowers, natural stones and pearls and even birds. It is sweet and simple yet classy, casual and elegant for all occasions.

What I love most, is that Cat has embraced the softness and colour of my banner design and is now combining that with the photos she takes of her jewellery. Her Etsy shop has a colour combination that is just beautiful – there are so many pieces to choose from. I am one happy designer!

People always think it’s funny that I can sew clutch bags but I still buy them from other places. As much as I love making my bags, I am obsessed with collecting clutch bags in general. Like any good collector, I search far and wide for hidden, clutch bag treasures to add to my stash and what a collection I have!

It’s a challenge for me to find a gorgeous, handmade clutch bags, complete with cute lining. I’m a sucker for cute lining every time. So, when I saw this bag made by cindymars7, I knew I was in love! My clutch arrived today all the way from Colorado, USA and I have to say, the photos do not do it justice – it is lovely!

Of course, it was the lining that won me over in the end…

My latest hobby obsession is creating these custom Etsy banners. I love filling each tiny 760 x 100 pixel canvas (teeny!) with gorgeous, vintage inspired designs. An easy way for Etsians to update the look of their shop and build a brand identity. Available at: http://www.etsy.com/shop/wharfie79  (my Etsy lurker ID).
