I made a few new discoveries at The Stitches and Craft Show on Sunday ( and reinforced some stuff I already knew). Here are some of them.......
*I discovered the fantastic, award winning "MakeDo" products and met the talented duo behind them."MakeDo" are simple plastic connectors that help you make things from the stuff around you! I'll be writing a special post about this cool company over at my other blog Find, Make, Do very soon......and yes, I came up with my blog name before I'd heard of this. Geat minds and all that! I also discovered MakeDo are fans of Betty Jo and wrote a little story on their blog!*I discovered that I have magic powers. While talking to Michelle from Crayon Chick in the very homey Incubator section about getting her gorgeous crotchet necklaces into shops, who should approach her but the girls from Mozi. Hope they make a BIG order!
Oh and by the way, if you want to use my "magic" with your products I might just start hiring myself out at markets and trade shows!*After attending the very informative Craft and Business workshop by Kate Vandermeer I discovered that Foxes and Rabbits are indeed the New Trends (and a baby fox is called a "kit").
Line Sheet"( I always called them catalogues).I will use all these in all my general business discussions from now on!
*I discovered Owls are out (yep, knew that) and birds are in RIGHT now ( even though I have seen them around for quite a while) and blogging is HOT! (just ask Jodie from RicRac)
*After doing my own bit of Trend Forecasting (while dashing through Northland this morning) I can say with assurance PURPLE is every where. eg. Birds and Purple in the JAG window
*So now I've discovered I was unconciously dressed right on the trendy money yesterday at the show in my 70's vintage dress I'd just scored from a Blackburn oppy and a sparrow pendant from you know who.
