Somewhere New to Play

The sewing machines are whirring, glue guns are hot and ready to go, paintbrushes are a blur of movement all over Brisbane in preparation for Friday night's BrisStyle Indie Twilight Market in King George Square.

I'm trying out a new option on Friday. I will be part of the BrisStyle Co-Op and will be sharing a marquee with Julia and Patricia. There are also nine other lovely BrisStylers in our co-op pod so I figured it would be a great way to socialise under the guise of work!

Some of my aunts and cousins will be coming in for a look see on Friday and that's another reason I'm quite twitterpated about the event. Hope to see you there between 5pm and 9pm in King George Square on Friday.

Now I know the insights into the creative side of this blog have been a little light on in recent times but I promise, as soon as I have the nod, I've got lovely things to share so stick with me for a while longer!

We Remembered

Taken from Patrick's Show & Tell for the week:

These are my Grandpa Bob's medals.
He was a soldier in the Vietnam war.
I did not meet my Grandpa Bob.
He is in heaven.
On Anzac Day we will remember him.

And with much love, we did.

Thought for Thursday

Celebrate what you want to see more of.
Thomas J. Peters

The weekend is almost upon us and aside from two days of play, we're celebrating a couple of other things at our place. The 6yr old button lost his first tooth today and is absolutely ecstatic and more than happy to pose for photos.

On Saturday he is playing his first, official, soccer game and he's equally excited about that. We may have a problem getting the boots and shin pads off the small sister whose fashion sense is taking quite an alarming turn.

Cute as Buttons won't be at The Handmade Expo on Saturday because I will be cheering for the soccer players but you should definitely pop along and have a bit of a look at the many lovely things on display. There are lots of new things there as well as many of the old familiar stalls. It's important to support and attend these great local markets - celebrate them! That way they'll know we want them to keep coming back.

While I am celebrating things I like, welcome to lots of lovely, new, blog followers. It's nice to know I'm talking to someone! Thank you to Kathy from Sweet Simplicitee for your Sunshine Award. I'm as proud as the toothless one!

I'm thinking we Buttons must have stepped on a black cat's tail while walking under a ladder and knocking a mirror to the ground! We've been struck down with a variety of dreaded lurgies and instead of all taking to our beds at once, we seem to be tag teaming. In fact, the healthiest member of the household is the one taking a bucket load of immuno-suppressants which is the good that is coming out of the bad!

I am going to keep my germs to myself tomorrow and won't be at the Boutique Markets. I'm a bit miffed to be missing a catch up with all my market mates but there is always next month! Luckily the BiTM and BiMC are also not far away! If you need something before then, I'm only an email away, cuteasbuttons@aanet.com.au or you can visit the Etsy store over there in the column on the right.
