Some photos from the weekend

I spent my weekend working on some new bags in pretty prints, working on another cute DIY, cutting out vintage fabrics to participate in this and seeing the hilarious Muppets movie with friends.

Inspiration Friday

I thought that with yesterday being Everyday Mae's first birthday I would postpone Inspiration Friday until today!

I thought it would only be fair that this weeks picks for Inspiration Friday are all from Australia too, Happy Australia day (again!)

Happy Saturday!

Happy Birthday Everyday Mae!

I thought it would be very appropriate to look back over the year that was Everyday Mae. Here are some photos on work that I have created over this past year. 

This year has been super duper awesome! I really tried hard to put myself out there and do tons of things out of my comfort zone. I'm happy with what I achieved and want to thank everyone. 

To all of my friends, sister and parents who shamelessly promote Everyday Mae to anyone who will listen

To my sister for helping with the first Everyday Mae market stall

To my parents who supported me and who have been encouraging from day one

To Etsy for having an awesome website that allows me to sell my stuff and connect with other likeminded people

And mostly to my customers! I am grateful and humbled by every sale that I get. Here's hoping to an even better second year of Everyday Mae!!!

Weekend Wrap Up

Here is a few snippets of my weekend! I spent time working on new bags (it feels like forever since I've listed any in the shop!), drinking tea and caring for some of my plants. I also had some very important girl time where we found the wall above!

Everyday Mae Update!

Over Christmas and New Years I took a small break from creating for Everyday Mae. I spent my time catching up with friends and family and I don't regret that for a minute! I'm currently experiencing a lack of productivity and due to some issues in my personal life the amount of product I have been making has not been as much as I would like. It's definitely not a lack of inspiration, I can spent hours pinning things on Pinterest and getting so excited I forget to put on my glasses and the result is an inspiration fuelled headache. 

On the upside, I still have been creating and the result is in the photos above. I am working progressively on a few different styles at once so sometimes it feels like I am getting nothing finished when I am actually steadily working. I am hoping to have some of these bags finished and photographed this week. A select few will be put into my Etsy shop, while the others will be kept for a special reason, I will share more details closer to the date!

Weekend Wrap Up

Some scenes from a weekend spent shopping, celebrating a 21st and digging around in the garden. I finished making the black dress in the above photo and was able to wear it to the birthday party! It has been sitting in the ever growing pile of projects-I've-started-but-not-finished since late October. Now I think it may be one of my favourite dresses I've made.

I also spent some time working on some new bags for Everyday Mae, but I don't have photos of that to share just yet! I also have some exciting news about Everyday Mae. I will share soon enough!
