:: Share the Love Fridays ::

Share the Love Fridays is a new concept that I'd like to start here on my little corner of the world. It's a new little section that basically shares some love from my weeks findings. But I want to make it a little different to most Friday shares. See, here is my thinking...

I get that the industry is a tough one (whatever industry you may be in), and it's apparently all about getting ahead and making yourself look better than the person next to you. I get the importance of promoting yourself before others, but I think it would be great if everyone could share some competition love every now and then. Yep, today and every Friday, I want give a little love to someone else who is doing very similar things to me - maybe they inspired me, or have my dream job/ skills/work life or are doing very similar things to So Little Time Co. and need a little encouragement and a remind that I think they are fab and doing a great job, and that they should definitely NOT give up.

I am going to start and continue it every Friday, but if you - dear reader - would like to send me some images of work from people who are doing a great job, who inspire you or who you are simply in complete envy of (in a good way), please send me their info or images to me at hello@solittletimeco.com. (Make sure you send me a link so I can give them due credit too). You can leave your name and a link back to your blog too, or be anonymous if you please.

So today I have 3 people to share with you...

Amy Walters. She makes super cute jewellery from her beautiful illustrations among many other things. You should check out her photo-licious blog, her envy-worthy website and her cute-as-a-button items on her etsy store.

Jacinta Sobey is a wonderful friend of mine, who inspires me and never fails to make me smile. She has some amazing sewing and screen-printing skills, and always has a new idea up her sleeve. Her latest print is definitely my favourite, but I'm in love with her beautiful balloon print too. She'll be launching her new textiles line soon so be sure to check her blog for news on that. I do believe she has an Etsy store though, check that out!

I discovered Mafa of Pink Rain through Etsy (how great is Etsy by the way?) and was INSTANTLY amazed and inspired by her gorgeous work. I think her work speaks for itself, but you should check out her cute shop and sweet blog.

If you'd like to share a bit of love in this space, you should send me an email, or even do it on your own blog too - I'd love to see it everyone sharing the love. Until next time...

I started this year in great form. I thought that this was my year to improve my "read it" list. I made a list of books I wanted to read, and my goal was finish 20 books this year - which is quite a lot considering I can count on my hands how many books I've ever finished reading. I thought it was time to improve my literacy and language skills. So I went out and bought a book - started easy - I bought a compilation of Hans Christian Anderson originals fairy tales. I love it, but I've only got halfway. Life just gets in the way. So its very embarrassing for me to say that my "I hate books" husband (the amount of books he's read I can count on two fingers), is onto his 3rd book for the year. I better get moving hey?

So I thought I'd share with you a special gift I was given by my mother-in-law, as its quite fitting with the topic. On condition that I never sell them and that they stay in the family, I was given 4 Hans Christian Anderson books - volumes of his fairy tales. These belonged to my husbands grandmother, but I think there is more to this story, so I need to do some investigating.

In the mean time, you should see these beautiful books. Boy do books get me excited. I just wish I had time to read them (excuse the iPhone quality).


Fashionable Tuesdays

As I've mentioned in previous posts, I'm a little fashion scared, but do have an interest. 
Which is probably just as well because So Little Time Co. produces wearables, and anything
wearable is considered fashion, to some degree or another.

But as I am no expert, I thought it best to simply post some "fashion finds" that appeal to me, 
and see what happens from there e...

<<< The studio this week >>>

I want to start off by apologising for my lack of posts lately. Between an awful bed-ridden sickness and finishing up at my full time job last week, things have just been a little crazy.

So I thought that now I have a bit more time up my sleeve, this blog - and you reader - shall get the attention deserved.

So I'll do a little round up of what's happening in the studio this week and what has already happened in a few little pictures. Please excuse the iPhone quality though.

Found our products stocked at Craft Victoria (not just on the online store anymore)
Don't they look great in the grass?

Our little mascot Frankie was sent off to the vet today for "rabbit castration". While I'm so excited about a well behaved bunny, it was so hard to drop him off this morning. Will keep you updated!

We got a bit silly with some plastic bags while waiting for our doona to wash at the local laundry!

I bought some supplies for a little project I'll be sharing a bit later in the week! And writing lots of lists...

Took a few "last" photos at work and in the alleyway

Speaking of finishing up at work, I thought I'd share the newest member of the studio. She doesn't have a name yet (I'm trying to find out her name) but she sure is gorgeous. She was a goodbye present from work, and when I received her, I nearly cried.
You see, she is a David Bromley - never in my wildest dreams had I thought I could ever own one, but I do. My boss very kindly gave her to me, and told me to always keep the bigger picture in mind. She is quite possibly the most meaningful and thoughtful gift I have ever received.

Hope you have a wonderful week.


CLOG feature + the home office shoot

Today was a HUGELY exciting day for me. So Little Time Co.'s very first interview was published today on Craft Victoria's blog as part of our Hatchling of the Month title. You can read it here. I can hardly contain myself... I never in my wildest dreams thought I would be answering questions about So Little Time Co. so many many thanks to the ladies at Craft Victoria for choosing us as Hatchling of the Month...

As part of the interview I was asked to photograph my workspace (the So Little Time Co. headquarters), and as promised in my last post, here are some photos from the interview, and an extra two photos for good measure.

Oh, and because we are Hatchlings of the Month, we also have a few items for sale via Craft Victoria's online shop. You can check it out here, or buy So Little Time Co. products through our Etsy store.
