Busy designing & GIVEAWAY REMINDER. 1 day to go!

For a lot of you in the North Spring is on it's way, which means that Autumn is about to start here in Australia. This is always a good time for me creatively as the cooler weather keeps me inside and for some reason, inspired.
lately I have needed to be as very soon I will be taking my little business, Marley&Lockyer to...
The Niche Designer Markets are going to be held on April 1st & 2nd this year with 2 more markets to come in August and November (I will be at the November one also). If you are in Tasmania, I would love for you to stop by the M&L stand and say hi and introduce yourselves.
It will be at the Inveresk Tram Sheds and will feature some of Tasmania and the Mainlands finest Artisans and Designers. Click on the link to find out more.
Today I spent the day playing with new clay designs. In particular, clay earrings.
Here they are waiting to have their backs put on and onto their little display cards.

I tried some of the plain white clay ball earrings out and took this pic with my web cam, so it is not the best quality.
Keep in mind it is my creative day today, so I have no makeup on and my hair is not done.
I did try to get a close up of the Bird earrings as well.
Loving these little pretties with the bird heads, and surprisingly
they are not heavy at all.
Don't like heavy earrings.
Web cam shot again, poor quality, but I had to show =0)

Lots of new tags have come out of today's venture indoors,
including some tags I had made back in July which I had never photographed.
If you are a Marley&Lockyer Facebook follower you will be able to see the rest.

My poor office is a mess, but my picture wall is coming along and I have more to add yet,
but haven't quite had the time for the moment.
I do love the vintage french prints which were a gift hanging on the left there
and my little canvases to the right.
If you are wondering what the little person is at the bottom it was a gift from our little Mason
on his first day of's supposed to be me!
That's what I have been up to of late. I hope you have entered the GIVEAWAY
(see last post) as it is drawn tomorrow.
