Web design skillz

I've been ignoring my blog for the last few weeks, I think starting a new one meant something had to give and this was what went. I'm not sure I can blame the new blog on a messy house but I will try and milk it for all it's worth. I've got the new Able and Game website up and got my business name registration in the post today, I would like to think everything is moving along but the list of things to do is rather long and daunting. The website is lacking a few important things, but usually when I design something it takes me days to come up with something I like and this was done in a night, plus I learnt a bit of CSS and my brain didn't implode.

This weekend is a big market weekend (although the weather is going to be garbage) with Rose Street on Saturday with Jodie from Meringue, who joined me last week. We did Rose Street last year so it was like the good old days, too many superdoopers and laughing at things that we probably shouldn't be laughing at. On Sunday there is the Makers' Market at Abbotsford Convent and the last Spiegeltent Bizarre Bazaar. Shonah will be doing the Spiegeltent Market and I will be at Makers Market on Sunday probably looking a little seedy after a night on the razz. Come along to any or all of them for some Christmas Presents designed by Melbourne designers and artists.

Ric Rac Won!

Thanks to everyone that helped my out with the survey for the Able and Game cards, we got lots of useful information that will really help us out over the next few weeks. I did the random number selector thing and Jodie from Vintage Ric Rac won. If you still want to help out and do the survey it is open and takes a few minutes.

I have some new stockists and both of them are firsts for the label. For those of you in Brisbane, my little felt ladies are stocked at Artefact Framing and Art Studio, 15 Whitehill Road in Newtown. If you're in New Zealand my products are now stocked at Madame Fancy Pants, 217 Cuba St in Wellington.

Also, if you've not been along to the Spiegeltent's Bizarre Bazaar there are two more weeks left. So far I've seen people flipping other people up in the air and a guy do a hand-stand with a sword down his throat, so it isn't a boring place to be on a Sunday morning. The market runs from 9.30 am - 1 pm at the Spiegeltent, between the Arts Centre and National Gallery of Victoria.
