My Creative Space

It's still school holidays here at the house of Two Cheeky Monkeys so crafting time has been highly limited this week.  But I did manage to find a little time to start work on a few new cupcake stands as well as an exciting new Christmas range of creations for Domum Vindemia.

The cupcake stands I have been making in recent times seem to be heavily inspired by the beautiful Spring weather in Melbourne, with lots of pieces featuring bright, happy colours or lots of floral patterns.

 My new Christmas range for Domum Vindemia will include fun, little Christmas stockings made from vintage fabric and bed linen and embellished with vintage doilies, lace or all of the above.  There will also be some Christmas ornaments in the new range, but I won't say any more about them just yet!  I've had fun hunting for vintage fabrics for the stockings and working on my designs - each stocking will be one of a kind due to the vintage nature of the supplies I am using!

So what do you think of my vintage fabric stockings?  Are there any colours you'd like to see (I am also working on yellow and possibly blue stockings)?  Would you like to see Christmas stockings in contemporary, but vintage-inspired, fabrics too?  And what are you making this week - are you being inspired by the weather around you?
