Enjoying the craft creative

I have always loved all things crafty.  From my first forays into felt, through to creating little sundresses in a flurry of maternal creativity for one of my little poppets.  Now, with less time on my hands, I have discovered the world of all things handmade and online. From Etsy (www.etsy.com) to Australia’s own Mathildas Markets (www.mathildasmarket.com.au), you too can now give the gift of handmade (sounds like a fab slogan!).   

I think it may be the thought of someone taking the time to create, or the uniqueness of a handmade treasure that makes it seem more special. For me, there’s also a hint of admiration (envy?) of the sheer skill of artistry.

Not convinced? Head out this weekend and make a morning of it. Visit your local handmade or farmers markets and enjoy…

Next week I’ll post pics and new finds from my field trip over the weekend to Mathildas Market.

Apart from the always delightful Matildas Market, some other great places to look are: 

  • The Market Roll www.themarketroll.com.au   Great directory of markets in Australia with a neat description of what you can expect.
  • Magnolia Square www.magnoliasquare.com.au Held in a gorgeous setting  this market is bursting with creative types and gorgeous gifts.
  • Market Angel www.marketangel.com.au Fabulously easy to navitage and filled with great pics, this site will help you find your next market

Happy hunting!
