Countdown has begun

Sjoe, its Wednesday already and I still have so much to do. BUT on the other hand - Im getting super excited. Ingrid a.k.a. Miss Popsiebelle, arrived yesterday afternoon with the most amazing creations! I really am amazed at how much and how well she has done. Set up starts today for the Design Indaba Expo, so going round to help set up a bit later. Its going to look amazing! Plus, its her birthday today, so happy birthday Ingrid!

On another note, but business card proofs arrived yesterday afternoon! WOOP! Signed off and on the printing reel. Which means I will have some great new cards just in time for the Indaba.

Shame my poor mom is helping me sew a cover for the display stan
d - a beautiful 3 tier cake made from Styrofoam that the brooches are going to be pinned to. Cant wait for that to be ready - thanks Mom!

And my wonderful boyfriend printed my little brooch tags at the office yesterday, despite the bad looks and judging faces from the rest of the staff complex.... thanks babe! Now all I need to do is cut them out ....

Phew, busy week ahead.
Oh and not to forget - we hit our 200 fans target on Monday, and yesterday the winner of a Heather's Leathers brooch was announced! Congratulations to
Esmeralda Brettenny for winning a cherries brooch! :)

For those of you who dont know yet - I will be at the Popsiebelle stand at the Design Indaba Expo with some brooches that I created especially for the Popsiebelle brand! An awesome little collaboration :) So please come and visit us on the weekend (25th - 27th February). Woohoo!

Order Up!

Last week was a pretty busy one - but rewarding nonetheless. I managed to finish 3 orders for Friday, so thought I'd give you a peek.
I'm still busy on the brooches for the Design Indaba - but getting there. So excited, its just around the corner! 25th - 27th February so make sure you pop round. It will definitely be worth it!

Anchors Away!

Ok, so I was so inspired yesterday after drooling over Koffin Kitten's new range of hairclips, that I had to make my own sailor / anchor inspired brooch. And Im so stoked with how it came out. Now all I need to do is get a hairclip to complete my outfit :)

And yes, I'm wearing this today - I couldn't wait!

Koffin Kitten Hairclips

I frikkin LOVE these hairclips!

These are some of my favourites from the new range of awesome hairclips from Koffin Kitten. Definitely have to get myself some! Check out the full range at Koffin Kitten's Etsy store or check out the website for more details.

Bunny Love

I have a very dear friend who absolutely LOVES bunnies. Actually, that's an understatement.

It was her birthday a little while back, so you can only guess what I made her as a brooch. Yip, a bunny. With a button for a tail. A bit of a delayed post, but its cute so I had to put up

The Design Indaba brooches for Popsiebelle are going really well. I've been working my ass off, but they're looking pretty cool. Will post up some pics tomorrow.

NEW designs

I've been a hardworking little leather elf for a while now, what with getting ready for the Design Indaba and all. But I have also made a few new creations for orders these past few weeks amidst the chaos ...

Here are a couple new designs - so cute if say so myself :)

So my other blog is "full to capacity"

So my Heather's Leathers blog section on the website is over capacity, and I am no longer able to upload I decided to move the blog section here to blogger as it has an endless capacity for pic uploads. So make sure to check here for updates, news and new designs!

Unfortunately, I can't move my other posts over to this blog, so Im just gonna have to take it from here.

Ok, thats it. Thanks for listening folks :)
