Artists, Bloggers, Crafters, Designers (ABCD)



The clever (not to mention adorable) streamer maker Steph from Bondville + Modern Printables + Wedding Ideas Australia (and supplier of  Pat and Stick's Homemade ice ) & Lisa from The Red Thread hosted a beautiful afternoon of peachyness last Saturday for a collection of Sydney bloggers to meet face to rather than computer to computer.  Lots of us brought goodies to add to the goodie bags (full contents here) were enough to put the Easter Show showbags to shame! Sweet Anni from Milk & Honey Photography was there to capture all the loveliness. 


The next day was my sis' birthday and I was ill prepared, but the goodie bag delivered per the fabric (Saffron Craig) wrapped gift, fastened with be-wooled button (Over It), card (Dudley Red Head) & peg.The gorgeous cake is by the talented Alison of Alison Lawson Cakes. Might I just say the doily laced chcolate from Tessa - Down That Little Lane was delicious with a cup of tea. Yep the whole block and the cookie from Mushi & Boo + The Art of Teddy Bears was to die for. If I can vote for some favourites, they would be the gorgeous brooch from Me We, the screen print from Badskirt and the gold lion print by Andrea Smith.  With a very special mention to grrl + dog for the gorgeous hand embroidered heart and Lisa for the birdy pattern - so generous.
