I must be doing something right!!!!

I'm going to gloat just a little bit.........a lady stopped at my stall on the weekend exclaiming, " I found them"...... she then rang her girlfriend and described the fabric the 'little poppettes' were wearing........when she finished her phone call she told me that her girlfriend had sent her to the market with a picture she'd sketched on a small piece of paper (right down to the detail of the hair) and asked her to buy two little poppettes.........!!!!

That's when you know that what you are doing is right .......... I love my "little poppettes"
and it seems so do others!!!! Thank you

welcome to tullykat alley

My daughter rang me and said, "I bought you something today mum, that you can take to the market with you"....."Don't tell me what it is, you know I love surprises!!"
"Guess", she said. :-) of course I couldn't guess, and thankfully she didn't tell me.
Later that day, when she arrived home, she was so excited. I'm sure you'll agree, it's the perfect addition to my stall.... on the top of my marquee is a dragonfly and the font just happens to be the same as my name.....tonight Ashton came home with another little rock with the word "laugh" and a butterfly!!!!!

button swap

I was recently invited to participate in a "Button Swap", and my first thought was, "who would want my buttons?" ......silly me.....I needed to make a little project using buttons and then swap my project for someone elses button project.

Ok, that sounds like fun......... so here is a picture of my little project

flemington market

If anyone ventured out last Sunday in Melbourne they would have needed to be tied to an anchor to not get blown away!!!!! The weather was unbelievably bad. Thankfully or unfortunately (whichever way you look at it) I was in bed with a tummy bug......and hence missed the day completely. Sadly, I had to send a message that I could not attend the Flemington Market that day. ........and I love my markets.
Imagine my surprise (when after keeing my breakfast down on Monday morning) I found an email from Craft Markets Australia indicating they were going to re-schedule the market for the following weekend!!!!!..........Now this just does not re-schedule a market is a huge undertaking, both financially and here is my big thankyou to both my universe and Craft Markets Australia.............special things really do happen.
So if anyone is in Melbourne next Sunday 23rd August, drop by the market at Flemington Racecourse and enjoy a day of music , food and fabulous handmade'll find me in the first row.....see you soon :-)

a gorgeous Sunday morning

What a beautiful morning it was for my first trip to Lardner Park. The forecast was for a wet and windy day, but as it turned out, the sun smiled and threw a grin on the faces of those who came to buy treasures at the market. I met people visiting from Glen Waverly, Beaconsfield and even stall holders from as far away as Geelong. It really is a social time I'm hoping to be outside to enjoy the sunshine, but as "murphy's law" will have it, it will be exactly that day that it will rain!!!!!......The countryside really is lovely, if you get a chance in September, (next market in Lardner Park) go for a wont even need a cut lunch, the yummiest calamari, and tasty homemade lemonade can be found amongst many other food stalls. Of course I'd love you to stop by and say hi. The photos below are images from my stall.....enjoy your day :-)

imagine laughter :-)

Something New

My friend Kellie at Moo Woo made these cards for my daughter's 1st birthday. I had already ordered the invitations and decided on what kind of cake I'd make......imagine my delight when I opened the parcel to find these beautiful handmade cards! I couldn't decide which one to chose, so I kept them both!!!!! I think you'll agree, they're perfect. Thanks Kel :-)

Something Blue

I love the fabric used on this cute little bag from smooch designs, how cute is the owl?

I was lucky enough to win one, and couldn't resist buying another.

Alice in Wonderland

Here are photos of my 40th birthday. If you asked anyone who knows me, the answer would be ,"yes, she loves dress up theme parties". I do, I absolutely love dress up parties and have been getting in to some sort of costume since I was at primary school. I even remember dressing up our little sister as a cat for a pet competition.......she won second prize!!!!
In this group of photos, I've superimposed guests onto cartoon backgrounds. The night was a lot of fun....and of course.....there was only one with her head!!!!!

You are invited to a Masquerade Ball

I married my husband in 2006 in what was a fabulous "themed" wedding. Our guests were invited to a Masquerade Ball with the celebrant dressed as the Phantom of the Opera!!!
My husband (dressed in military uniform) duelled the phantom for my hand, and won!!!....but of course he :-)

It really was a special evening........

a little about me

thanks for “clicking” by,

I’d like to use "blogger" as a way of letting people know about my little business and to give more insight into the girl behind the machine…… it seems that's the thing to do these days.....and I check out everyones blog and they all look so great....... so what I think will happen is when I get an idea I'd like to share regarding my craft business, I'll post it, otherwise I think I'll tell stories...the latest story I'm telling is about my husband....but maybe I should start at the beginning......well maybe not the beginning, beginning........but at least further back than last week.......

Have you watched a young childs’ eyes light up with sheer delight when they spot something that makes them happy? It’s magical.
The clock stops, the room disappears, there is no noise and the only thing you see is the smile, and for a split second you’re caught up in a moment of wonderment.
Magic has happened and that warm fuzzy feeling is called love.
It wasn’t so long ago we were dragging our favourite toy around the house and dressing it up to be Mr Watchamacallit in our imaginary day at the zoo where the big creatures fly down from planet Mars to help the princess fairy get ready for the ball. We’ve just forgotten what it feels like. Caught up in a world of gadgets and gizmos, its nice to get back to the basics.

I love creating things, any thing really, and lately I've been creating soft dolls. Not the normal kind, mine are a little unusual.....but oh so cute.........and that's what everyone says when they see me at the market....."they're soooo cute"!......just a little bit is my reply ;-)
Before the dolls, was aprons, before that I was trying my hand at the love of my life, painting......some would say they were great....I always thought they were a work in progress...the thing I loved most about painting was I'd get lost in the moment.........a little bit of heaven in my own living room!! my love is sewing....which is tully{kat} alley
a combination of my beloved cat,(tully) and now my daughters names, whose initials are A, K and T
here you'll find a couple of photos to get the “blog” rolling and when I start telling stories, I'll post some more
have a great day
This is me…….. Samia, mum of three!!!!
