Catch Up!

Yes, yes, I know it's been a while... I got caught up in uni madness, and didn't really have time to update this thing.

But, I am delighted to say that uni is over for the year (YES!) so I will probably be updating a lot more frequently now... that is, if I don't work too much!

First thing on the agenda, if you live in Sydney, you MUST, MUST go to The Finders Keepers Market! The market will be held on the 5th and 6th of December at Carriageworks. Check out the website for more details.

I'm incredibly jealous that I can't go (cos I live in Melbourne), but I will sort of be there vicariously through Leeloo who will have a stall there, so that's exciting! I've just sent a bunch of my button bracelets to Angela, so look out for them at the market!

Buttons, Buttons, Buttons!

I love buttons. They're just so versatile. You can do so much with them. Plus, they're pretty and come in so many different colours and designs.

I love picking them out at op-shops and haberdashery departments.

I love sewing them into things.

But I especially love making bracelets out of them...

Blue, Purple and Peach Button Bracelet

This one is a Blue, Purple and Peach coloured button bracelet and is available on my etsy shop.

Yellow, Lime, Blue Button Bracelet

This one is a Yellow, Lime and Blue button bracelet, and will be available on my etsy shop soon.

Lilac, Purple and Violet Button Bracelet

This one is a Lilac, Purple and Violet coloured button bracelet, and is available on my madeit shop

Mauve, Lilac and Purple Button Bracelet

This one is a Mauve, Lilac and Purple coloured button bracelet, and will be available on my etsy shop soon.

Purple, Peach and Lime Button Bracelet

This one is a Purple, Peach and Lime coloured button bracelet and is available on my madeit shop.

I'm also happy to make custom colour combos for anyone who wants any particular coloured buttons to match an outfit, theme or just their favourite colours. Just let me know and I'll be happy to accommodate your requests.

There will be more button bracelets gracing both of my online shops in the near future, so keep an eye out for them

The week that was

This week has been a busy one at Box of Glory HQ. I've been getting back into my crafting, which is what I was hoping would happen these holidays. I've been making lots of button bracelets (they should be up on my etsy shop and madeit shop by Monday afternoon! Yay!). I've also made a bunch of fascinators (some of which will be going to Leeloo, and the rest to etsy and madeit.


It's been fun. Hopefully I'll be making a bunch of brooches in the next week too.

I really want to overstock my online shops as much as I can before uni starts again, because I know I won't get much time after that. It's photos/uploads/listings that take the longest!

I also made some cupcakes the other night. Pink frosting with edible glitter, yum!

How has your week been?

Have you caught the travel bug?

Here are some cool map items I’ve discovered recently…

Map Enevelopes

Check out PaperRoute's etsy shop for some fab map envelopes. How cute!

Map Pendant

Check out AnneHoleman's shop on etsy for a beautiful map of paris pendant.

Map Journal

Love to keep a travel journal when you’re on vacation? How about documenting all of your wonderful travel adventures in a world-map journal from kristinkrane’s etsy shop?

Map Bangle

Going on a European escapade? Why not wear a Map of Europe Decoupaged Wood Bangle Bracelet from candencedesign’s etsy shop? You just never know when you’ll need to look down at your wrist and refer to it when you get lost in the magic of wandering around the streets of Paris, London, Venice, or Athens…

Map Wallets

My favourite map item is one that I recently purchased from Lyssy May from madeit.com, it’s a cute recycled street map wallet, and what’s even better is that you can choose the city or suburb you want on your wallet. How cool is that? I’ll just have to try and keep my sister’s jealous hands off it! Check out Lyssy May’s online shop to get YOUR jealous hands on one!
