So many things have been going on lately, I thought I might do a little news update. If you have been following Homely Creatures on Facebook you will know that I am very close to launching a brand new product range for children and the home. Designed in Melbourne and handmade (fair trade) in Nepal, I am BUSTING with excitement about bringing my own range to the world. The new Homely Creatures website complete with shop will be up any day now eeeeeek!
A couple of months ago I ran a photo shoot for the launch catalogue. It was so much fun and little Freyja was an absolute star as our adorable model. See some other shots in our catalogue here.
Next year I hope to bring Homely Creatures to the famous Finders Keepers Australian designer market, but this year I visited the fair to gather inspiration... slash buy everything. I probably shouldn't be publicly announcing this goal as the designers that get accepted for this market are so so talented and I'm sure that the selection criteria for the fair is redic'.
In other news, Jordan Ferney from Oh Happy Day blog visited Melbourne in October and threw a bloggers party at recently opened West Elm store on Chapel St. I met so many lovely like-minded ladies while perusing the the West Elm shelves and eating the AMAZING rainbow cake. Jordan is so nice, and it was such a pleasure to meet the talented and stylish Jordan!
With all of this networking I thought I should whip up some business cards. What do you think? I had so much fun hand crafting them with my label maker and washi tape.
And finally, amongst all of the craziness of launching a product range my boyfriend Robin and I went on an amazing holiday in South Africa. I can't begin to tell you how amazing it was. We just got back from the two weeks of adventure and luxury and although its nice to be home I WANT TO GO BACK to the gorgeous scenery, the awesome company and the beautiful animals we met on Safari.
So now while trying to get over my post holiday depression (PHD) I am busy finalising things for the official Homely Creatures range launch. It's been such an exciting year for me so far and its not even finished with more travel on the cards for December. Bring it on!
