Market preparation

Market preparation

Today I have been counting all my prints, cards and tags in preparation for the Millthorpe Markets on Sunday. These tidy piles are the least of it, you should see the rest of the studio - so much mess involved getting everything organised.

Hoping for some good weather. If you are going, I would love for you to stop by and say hi!



Now that Harley has upgraded phones and given me his old iPhone (all my phones have been hand-me-downs), I have been able to join instagram. Now I have another thing to distract me from doing any real work. Pinterest is the worst when I am procrastinating. I scroll through all the pretty images, repinning to my boards when suddenly I wake up and realise hours have passed. I'm not even kidding. If you would like to follow me, my instagram user name is ameliaherbertson.

I know I haven't been posting much, things have really picked up and I have been super busy with markets and custom orders. Right now, it is 11pm and I haven't had dinner yet (or lunch). I am drawing like crazy and to get ready for the Millthorpe Markets on this Sunday. I'm so excited, they are always fun. Except for last time when our whole stall nearly blew away in the wind. This time we are taking weights and tent pegs!

 I know I am late to be releasing my Christmas cards, I can't believe it is (almost) that time of year already!
As usual, these cards are hand printed with my own carved lino blocks on thick textured paper.

Pinterest Picks: Studio Spaces

I have been dreaming of a new and more spacious studio to draw and lino print in. Pinterest is the best place to scour for inspiration! My boards are slowly growing with beautiful images. These are my favourite art studio inspired pins.
