What I've been working on: My Creative Space

Since I've joined the chatter in the blogosphere, I've noticed that on Thursdays a lot of crafty bloggers share a theme called, "My Creative Space."  Can anyone shed a little light on this for me?  Is it an unspoken weekly ritual?  Does anyone know where it originated?  I really love reading about others' creative spaces, and well, I like being part of a community, so I thought I'd try it out.....

For this, my first official "Creative Space", I'll share with you a few photos from my most recent collection for My Baby and Me (sent off this morning!  Boy, does it feel good getting that parcel picked up....)  These items will be sold by MBAM via their website and also at various North Island markets such as Mary's Market.

It was really enjoyable working on these - I feel like with each set that I do, I learn so much more about my process, balancing the design, mixing colors, etc.  It will be interesting to see how things develop a few months or a year from now in terms of style and designs.  

Right now, my Felt shop is looking a bit bare, but I'm working on building up some stock for my first stall at the Nelson Saturday Market on June 19th (eeep!)  Fortunately, I'll be doing the market with a friend, which should help take the pressure off a little.   Wish me luck.
