After placing a project on hold for just over five years Creative Treasury is now a work in progress. The idea came about in 2009 but then I became involved with The Handmade Show – the crafters and artisans boutique market – which staged it’s first market in January 2010; and full time work. Having now retired as organiser of the market I can now concentrate on setting up Creative Treasury.
I’m building up a delightful world filled with creativity and gorgeous treasures – handmade, artistic, decorative, recreated, up-cycled, re-purposed, and vintage recreated – because life is too short for cheap imports.
This will possibly be a long process for me but I do like a challenge. Hopefully it won’t be too long and we’ll see this site blossom with lots of gorgeous creative treasures.
Through the doors of the creative hubs lie stories behind every creation and every maker. Come and find out more ~ what inspires them and how they develop their ideas. Perhaps even those who have never tried to make, bake, craft, draft or write may become inspired to get creative.
I have exported all my EP Designs posts to the new web site ~ Come and join me at Creative Treasury.
The Handmade Show is only 2 days away and EP Designs will be there.
The venue will be full of gorgeous wares hand crafted by creative artisans & crafters.
Come along for an enjoyable day. Browse the stalls and then relax at Cafe Handmade where the menu is tempting & yum.
Saturday August 18th
10.30am – 3.30pm
St. Anthony’s Parish Hall
164 Neerim Rd, Glen Huntly, Melbourne.
Don’t worry if the weather turns bad – it’s an indoor market.
Wishing You A Happy New Year!
The start of a new year has me reminiscing about the past year and looking forward to the new one. Lots has been achieved but what’s past is past & now I go forward with a new collection of life’s experiences & great expectations for work, rest, creativity and prosperity.
I hope your 2011 will be prosperous, exciting, fun, happy and accompanied with good health.
I’m looking forward to a great year of blogging too. If you’re reading this please take time to say Hi.
I’ve been busily preparing for The Handmade Show which only a couple of weeks away. The team at THS is offering another Gift Voucher as a door prize prize at the next show which is on Saturday 20th November.
If you live in Melbourne or are visiting here then jot this date in your diary & come to visit us at THS. You could be the winner of this fabulous prize. For more information about how to enter pop over to The Handmade Show blog.
THS has added Twitter to it’s list of social networks so if you’re on Twitter you can catch up with the team & all the goings on with the show.
In the meatime I must get back to my creative work.
It’s a great feeling knowing there’s a great team of dedicated workers who are using their talents & skills and giving their time to build up a successful show. The Handmade Show committee members are workers, parents, artists and crafters (mostly a combination of each), yet they give their precious time to help organise and build up a boutique style market … to make a dream become reality; to give an opportunity to the exhibit & sell extraordinary creative works; to offer benefits to the community as a not-for-profit organisation.
This is not an easy task but it is an exciting one especially when you can see progress. Karen from MooBee Tees (and a committee member) says –
I’m proud to say that our baby is no longer crawling, and is now walking :0)
I must also give a big Thank You to Karen, Bobbie, Samone, Jade, Kerri and Regina – we’ve still got lots to do but the job that’s been done so far is fabulous.
