Featured on Shazzabeth Creations ...

Last week I had the fortune to be featured on Shazzabeth Creations blog.

This blog is written by Shazzabeth, who makes beautifully exquisite handmade jewellery. These pieces are miniature bits of art and so gorgeous.

I'll be saving my pennies for something from Shazzabeth for sure, so make sure if you are going to BiDM (BrisStyle Indie Designer Markets) this coming weekend that you keep your eyes open for her stall!

You can check out Shazzabeth's etsy store here for a glimspe into the shiny world of semi-precious gems and gorgeous silverwork.

For a day of shopping, tunes, catching up with friends and of course shopping for the best sub culture finds in brisbane!

Kustom Krafts Market was started in June 09' in the back of an old Queenslander in Paddington Brisbane with 10 stalls and the turn out of people was incredible for the space we had, people of every scene, sub culture and style came out to show support for all the young designers and vintage sellers.

Now we are up to #4

We were lucky to find the 'Jagera Arts Centre' which is a historic hall, with a fence surrounding it, shading trees, room for plastics and classic and a sense you are out in the country but surrounding you are views of Brisbane city. We started the market so people could get together between major car shows and socialise, have a bite to eat, find out when the next big gig is on, relax and watch some music and shop up a storm for bargains we have major support from artists like Marcus Thorn from Tiki Beat, and the Sunstate Roller Girls, DJ Lori Lee (Greazefest),Barry Macnamara (Wintersun) Gasser Gav (Cruzin Magazine) Jo Spence (Disasterpiece Clothing) and many car clubs around the Gold Coast & Brisbane.

Entry to the market is just a gold coin donation so you can save your money to spend on the stalls.

A dilemma ... do I or don't I sew or not to sew

I have run out of Labels to sew into my clothes ... and after sourcing more my supplier has kindly informed me that due to the Chinese New Year holiday I wont be able to get any more until mid march .... argggh

What do I do ... sew my stuff without labels?
Not make any more clothes?
Find a substitute?

Any ideas would be welcomed ... I have 3 markets coming up well before Mid march and I really am stuck!

I'm not against sewing without labels ... for a long time I did just that ... but do you think it matters if the clothes only have size and care labels?
