On The Shelf





I've been busy making wallets for a new shop in South Australia and thought I would post some pictures. I will post some more information about them next week when they open their doors. Due to the new stockists I've been doing so much screenprinting I needed to sort out the growing pile and shifted an almost empty Billy shelf into the studio to sort out the piles with lots of room for it to grow over the coming months when it gets busy in the lead up to Christmas.

I'm not very good at sorting things out, I can't throw out the stuff I should, so the stuff I need often isn't kept in the best place. My studio space has a lot of shelves but I don't think I use the space that well, even though they are rammed with stuff. I look at people like Martine from Green Olive who had everything so well sorted out in her last house (and now has a lovely huge studio!) and wonder how people actually do it. I keep thinking I just need meters and meters of shelf space and then I will be happy and everything will be good, but I think that is just a dream.

I'm a bit of a Bower Bird that loves pretty things and can't seem to throw anything out! Love the red too.

I love the red and white one! You sound just like me when it comes to organizing/storing. So many time I need something, KNOW I have it, but cannot find it. Exasperating!

Their secret is they are very obsessive, anal types who spend all day thinking about better ways to organise and sort stash. You are much better to focus on making! maybe I should come round and sort you out? Let me know. I'd actually enjoy it, that's the sad part!

I think greenolive might have found a great sideline business - I'd love someone to come and sort me out - I can't throw anything out either! And those stored things do come in handy sometimes....

The wallets are gorgeous - beautiful fabric!

You need to get a work experience kid! I am the same, but had a lovely girl come and work with me and she sorted me out!
