I am finally a university graduate at age 40👩🏼🎓 After many years of hard work, I finally have my Bachelor of Arts with a GPA I’m pretty proud of. No, it doesn’t qualify me to “be” anything, but I have expanded my knowledge and critical thinking skills exponentially!! Next year, I’m undertaking a Diploma of Engineering and have my eye on a Masters of Social Change and Development after that. I’ll be studying till I’m 90!! #matureagedstudent#universityofadelaide#graduate
All of your orders are boxed up and ready to ship out first thing tomorrow morning! There are still a handful of mugs, preorders and trays available on the website if you're still looking for a handmade gift! 🎁🎄
It’s Friday! How has your week been? Have you been doing the day job or working the day dream? Or both?!
I’ve tried to focus mainly on Silly Heart this week but in reality still had to skip between businesses every day. It’s been scrambling my brain a bit but I’ve had several signs from the universe that I’m on the right path. 🌙
One, someone I hugely admire and had been putting off contacting because I worried Silly Heart wouldn’t be their cup of tea got in touch with ME.
✊🏻 Two, new ideas for content and firmer plans have been flowing out of me really naturally (along with a lot of other stuff, thanks to catching my daughters’ latest lurgy. Hot right?)
And three, two people got in touch out of the blue to thank me for helping them and their small businesses this year. The very reason I started all of this!
It truly is the case that when it is right, it is easy. That even when it’s hard (late nights, empty bank account, scrambled brain) that it feels easy, because things keep falling into place. ✨
So what is it for you? What do you keep finding yourself doing/talking about/thinking about when you should be working? Because maybe that’s the work you should really be doing. And there is no better time than now.
Only a couple left of these gift boxes! Come grab yourself and loved ones a gift box for the holidays. This one comes with a hand poured soy wax candle by People’s Culture, Wild Goose Christmas Blend, and chocolate from Raaka
Unique and super creative finds always at this weekend's San Jose Craft Holiday Fair. One of our faves for unique and super creative work @kwentobynica will be there. Find Kwento by Nica Booth #325 . From Nica herself: "Hello, my name is Nica. I'm from Manila; now working and playing in San Francisco Bay Area. I write and illustrate flash fiction & short stories. I print literary zines, make greeting cards, and Mother to the Little Bitch Pillow. // The Long Version: Hello my name is Nica and I'm the writer and illustrator of Kwento. Kwento means "story" in Tagalog, my first language. Kwento is a creative space where I write, draw, and tell stories.

I just realized it’s been five days since I last posted anything! We’ve been working double time over the last few weeks trying to finish up our guaranteed Christmas orders. We’ve just about got those finished, so we spent some time today putting the finishing touches on a large batch of block plane holsters. We will be posting these up for sale on the website this Saturday as a last minute Holiday Special! If you order one over the weekend, it’ll ship out early next week in time for Christmas. These are the perfect stocking stuffers for the hand tool woodworker in your life, they were recently named to the 2018 Holiday Gift Guide that was put together by @thisoldhouse! We always have trouble keeping these in stock, so get one now before they are gone again!
Progress!! After two days of milling, we are now about 3 gallons of glue and several days of planing and sanding away from this starting to look like a butcher block counter top. I can’t wait to see all of this laminated into one giant piece!!
[SOUND ON🔊] Feeling a bit elvish as we get closer to finishing the serving trays. It’s nice to have all the undersides oiled...🤔😶... So Christmas is right around the corner and we’ve got to get them done! There’s nine in total and now all that’s left to complete is hardware and top finish. Thanks for watching everyone! #handmadechristmas#danishoil

she’s bringing the plants, im bringing the polas 🌱📷🖤
come to the @colby_made + @ashphotoco collab booth on saturday @memphismakermarket 11-5 ✨ sooo many amazing local vendors + handmade wares. we can’t wait.
And we are done for the season! A huge thank you to everyone who came out to see us and supported us this year. It means so much to me when people come to me to buy knits made from natural fibres and that they support my charging for the cost of labour involved in making everything I sell!
If you missed us in person this year you can still place an order before the holidays. Locals have until the 22nd of December to place an order for any in stock items and arrange delivery or pick up to get your cozy knits to give as gifts.
And now back to my regularly scheduled knitting. I have been slowly working on a test knit for a very pretty blanket for @knitwitmee and now that things have quieted down I am going full speed on this sucker so I can cuddle with it sooner! #knitting#handmade#thankyou#makermovement#maker#testknitting#kelenekinnerslydesigns#blanketknitting#cantwait#socozy
We are absolutely in love with the new hardware we got today! These beauties are handmade and really elevate any piece of furniture they’re paired with! Shop tomorrow from 10-6!
P.S. The second photo is an ikea dresser! You would never even know!! 🙊
