Oh such joy!!!!

and a trip to Morocco will do nicely.... colour with smells to match!

and South America...oh the bold bright colours of South America...constantly calling me.....

So ..now it is back to reality and some housework...(sigh!)

Taking over the world with DUST!

I am so pleased to be a member of the DUST Team.

What is DUST you may ask?


DUST (Down Under Street Team) is a group of Australian Artists, Crafters, Craft material suppliers and Vintage sellers who promote and sell independent Handcrafted goods here in Australia and worldwide. The team has over 390 members and so far has sold nearly 29,000 items all around the world...Yep! that's right...29,000! This absolutely astounds me.It is amazing to think that we have been able to let the world know how much talent there really is here in Australia. Our reputation around the world as a creative and talented nation of people is growing fast!

The handmade movement is gaining momentum all around the world with consumers starting to see the value, on many levels, of buying hand made. Quality, ethics and the pending demise of mass produced consumer goods is leading people back to recognising the true values of creativity and the incomparible feeling of owning an original piece of art or something special that has been made with love, skill and by hand.

Here is a teeny glimpse of what the Australian DUST Team has to offer...

Gorgeous...tempted?.....The Dust Newsletter (you can find the sign up button at the side of my blog here!) will make sure you know about new items, new sellers and any promotions and special events that the Team is running...

hint...... a huge event coming at the end of July!!

Be a part of the change in consumer attitude that is sweeping the world...support Hand Made...support DUST!
