SHE MADE THEM HERSELF




RAMONA: It's been crazytown for me this week. I have found myself and my little business Words and Pictures caught up in the too-cool-for-school-world of the National Design Festival. I'll be rubbing shoulders with the supa groovers this Sunday at Readymade Market (Fed Square Carpark 10-5). I normally just make greeting cards but I went all fancy pants and made some badges too (hundreds of them in fact) and Beck was determined to get a swelegant photo of me proudly showing my wares. Yes that's me holding them like they're the first bowl of cherries at the market. I was planning on making toys too but as you can see I didn't get too far. The stripey socks were for the handpuppet last week, maybe a sock monkey next week who knows...

I'm sharing a stand with Irene (Iggy and Lou Lou) which is very exciting. There are loads of other exciting stallholders too. If someone (please) can come and mind my shoppe for 10 minutes I can wizz round to see Third Drawer Down's amazing table as well as drool at the deliciousness of Succulent Designs, Jessie Tucker, and Penelope Durston and dozens more. It should be a fun day out. Do stop by to say hello!

To find out more about the Design Festival you can check out the website at the

National Design Centre

Don't think that Beck Jobson hasn't been busy too. She took some amazing photographs for an upcoming project that we can't show you just yet. So you'll just have to put up with photos of my silly mug instead.
