Monster Craft Fair Crafty Monster!

I've had monsters on the brain recently. Fortunately they were cute monsters! I immortalised this crafty cake decorating critter in an illustration for the Bunbury Cathedral Grammar School Monster Craft Fair & Open Day poster, designed by the talented Bronwyn Rogers. Now there can be monster parties every day! Yay!

Tall Rabbit goes shopping!

My recent trip to Melbourne coincided with the Markit@FedSquare, which I was delighted to discover! There were so many talented stallholders there from Melbourne and surrounding cities and the displays all looked so amazing! I had a great time meeting some fellow crafters and even did a bit of shopping too. Here is my loot:

(L - R) Washi tapes from Notemaker, brooch from Naomi Murrell, Blank Matryoshka set from Blank, Camera/Film studs from bRainbow, Bananaman brooch and bathing bear card from Hello Polly,
Card from Madeleine Stamer, Card from The Gently Unfurling Sneak, Gift Tags from Ask Alice and
little bunny and elephant ornaments from dot&eve

It's so interesting to see new work and great that so much of it is really original! All those wonderful creative people just keep coming up with new ideas!

Some of the lovely stallholders I met were:

Kirsty and Josh  - so little time

Anika (hidden) - The Gently Unfurling Sneak

Evi (left) & her very proud man - Bonnie Poplar

Torunn (off camera) - Herbert and Friends

Miss FOO in the middle of her very colourful display - Pleaty Bunny

I love going to new markets and this one was a doozy! I recommend it if you are in Melbourne next time it is on. Remember - every time you buy a handcrafted item, you are saving a creative type from having to go and work in the mines!

Tall Rabbit at Supanova!

Some Tall Rabbit customers at Supanova including zombies, Pikachu & Ash and Rilakkuma!
I had a great time at Supanova with lots of superbly costumed attendees. One zombie couldn't stop herself from tasting a Tall Rabbit item and Pikachu freaked out at the cuteness of it all! It was a fun weekend and I hope to do it again next year!

Supa badges!

I've done three new badge sets which will be making their debut at Supanova on the weekend! One set is dedicated to a Supanova special guest, Yvonne Craig, who played Batgirl in the 1960's Batman TV show and Marta the green slave girl from Star Trek. Another set is dedicated to the Lolrus and his bucket. And the other set is dedicated to the No No No Cat. Unfortunately the Lolrus and the No No No Cat were not invited to Supanova. If they were, I'd be camped outside their hotels waiting to catch a glimpse of them! I think the Lolrus would want the presidential suite and the No No No Cat would probably reject all the rooms offered and end up in a kitty carrier on the balcony. Poor No No No Cat.

Tall Rabbit @ Supanova

Tall Rabbit is off to Supanova on the weekend! Supanova is a pop culture expo with lots of special guests including Christopher Lloyd (Doc in Back to the Future), Yvonne Craig (Batgirl in 60's Batman), Verne Troyer (Mini-Me in the Austin Powers movies) and other actors from Buffy, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter and animé series voice actors.
I'll have a table in the Artists Alley section so look out for me if you go! Visit the Supanova website to get tickets and for more information. It should be an exciting weekend!

Birthday fun!

I went to a first birthday party on the weekend. Woohoo! So many cupcakes! There were little ones, big ones, green ones, sparkly ones... and I had to try one of each. Yum! The birthday boy was having the time of his life - it was his best party yet! 
I decided to make him some personalised shirts as a present. I got some teeny tiny shirts with eeny weeny pockets on and painted some little pocket pals coming out of them - a teddy surprise and a roaring dinosaur. My favourite is the dinosaur - I hope the birthday boy enjoys wearing them!

Tall Rabbit's Melbourne Adventures

I've just come back from a whirlwind trip to Melbourne and boy did I pack a lot in! I went to markets, met some lovely crafters, went to a conference, visited galleries, got some supplies, ate yummy food, caught trams, got some cool new magazines, saw gogo dancing nerds on vacation, partied in the National Gallery of Victoria, found some very cute goodies, visited the Etsy Showroom and even managed to fit in some sleep! I've got so much to report back on so check back soon!

Peppermint Print

Tall Rabbit is in print! As seen in the Autumn 2012 edition of Peppermint Magazine
I took the plunge into magazine advertising along with ten other Western Australian Etsy sellers and it sure smells good! I really like the smell of the uncoated paper the magazine is printed on. Mmm, fresh magazine...
Anyway, the aim of the ad is to promote WA sellers on Etsy - there are hundreds of us! And we want everyone else to find out how good we are and buy lots of things from our shops so we can keep on making more things forever and ever! Yay!

Art & Markets

Perth Upmarket was on the 4th March at UWA and I had a stall outside for the first time. It was a devil of a hot day but I had the pleasure of overlooking Choi Jeong Hwa's Breathing Flower installation which distracted me a little from the heat. The giant petals lifted up and then deflated as the flower 'exhaled'. Sometimes the wind gave the petals a little extra lift (at one point I thought the whole flower was going to take flight!) and the ducks didn't seem to mind their bright red pond-mate. Choi Jeong Hwa is the same artist who created the giant triangular structures in Stirling Gardens and filled up Central Gallery with balloons, both which I mentioned in a previous post and was also part of Perth Festival (which is now sadly over boo hoo!).

I'm also doing two other markets this month - The William Street Festival in Northbridge on Sunday 18th March and Unwrapped in South Perth on Sunday 25th March. I'll be sharing a stall with Anna Hadwin Crochet Toys so it will be doubly cute - you have been warned!
There will also be lots of things to do and see at the William Street Festival including origami workshops, a sneaker swapmeet, gogo dancing and yummy foods. I can't wait! I hope to see you there - 10am to 4pm, Sunday 18th March on William Street Northbridge (between Francis and Newcastle Streets).

Meet some new little friends!

These little guys will be making their debut at Perth Upmarket on Sunday!
The Tall Rabbit stall will be outside under the verandah of the undercroft overlooking the pond so make sure you come and meet them, they would love to go to a new home!

The Madness!

There's a lot going on in Perth at the moment, in fact there's almost too much! It could quite possibly blow your little minds and give you a severe case of the Madness! 
To start with, the Fringe Festival has the number one spot to hang out with its awesome Fringe World  - a magical oasis of coolness in the middle of the city at the Old Treasury (and the place to spot Barry Morgan after his World of Organ shows). You will also find roving carny folk (beware!), lots of astro turf and palette seating and even a tank with mermaids! And I haven't even mentioned all the shows you can go to or the Spiegeltent!
The Perth International Arts Festival burst into town on Saturday night with Place des Anges. There were feathers raining down on the city of Perth, crazy French performers, Les Studios de Cirque, zooming down wires from the tops of buildings and a giant inflatable angel flying down St George's Terrace!
On the other side of town there is the more 'grown-up' Festival Gardens (also making use of plenty of astro turf) with pretty lanterns and bars made out of huge pipes from the C.Y. O'Connor pipeline! 
Korean artist Choi Jeong Hwa has been getting around town too, leaving his mark in Stirling Gardens with Air/Air, his giant pink and green triangular constructions made out of plastic baskets and he's also filled up Gallery Central with wriggly balloons for his exhibition Life/Life and you can also see his giant inflatable lotus at UWA.
I'm pooped just thinking about it! I guess I will have a case of the Madness for another few weeks at least! Yippee!
