Happy Easter

I’m looking forward to the four day Easter break after such a hectic week filling egg orders.

I have to say a big thank you to Lee Tran Lam who generously wrote about my Chalkboard Eggs on her blog The Unbearable Lightness of Being Hungry – isn’t that the best name?! – and spoke about them on the radio. To top it off she managed to get them featured on NotCot (very exciting), which resulted in a flurry of orders.

Then my eggs started popping up all over the place on the net including on Apartment Therapy. Amazing.

Edit/Update: Thanks also to Free People and Poppytalk for featuring my Chalkboard Eggs. I’m truly grateful for all the wonderful exposure on these and other blogs.

Thanks everyone for your support, enthusiasm and orders!

I am going to keep selling my Chalkboard Eggs throughout the year as I’ve had orders that aren’t specifically for Easter. Here’s the shameless plug: They would make a fun and quirky gift for many occasions and you can order them through my website.

Apologies for not posting more today, but I’m a bit snowed under. I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend and I’ll see you back here on Tuesday.

Oh and do check out Lee Tran’s foodie blog, especially if you’re in Sydney – she’s written a mouthwatering post about the best Easter chocolate finds around town.

Remember that old rhyme about what little boys are made of?

My friend’s little boy came to a party last weekend wearing sparkly wings. He wore his crocs, a pair of long black shorts and a funky hat to complete his fun and stylish ensemble. He felt and looked fantastic and not at all girlie in his wings. How great is that?!

Kudos to his mum (my gorgeous friend) for giving her son the freedom to express himself without the constraints of our adult expectations.

Pencils as Both Medium and Canvas

Isn’t this such a great idea from melbourne’s Ghostpatrol? I just love the use of these vibrantly coloured pencils as a canvas for illustration. And the drawings themselves are so lovely.

Two Great Magazines & Two Lovely Surprises

Surprise #1
I was thrilled when leafing through my new copy of real living to find that the magazine’s Style Director, Jason Grant, has one of my “Love Bird” timber cards pinned to the wall of his desk space. (See it there with the 3 red hearts on it?)

Surprise #2
Last week I received and email from Inside Out magazine saying that as “one of our favourite bloggers” they were going to send me something special. My postie arrived today with a copy of the new issue of the magazine and the fabulous drawstring bag that comes with it. Grace Lee’s typographic design is gorgeous – I can think of a lot of uses for this sweet little bag. In fact, as you can see from my photo, it’s already in use! As usual this issue of Inside Out is full of beautifully styled and shot images of gorgeous homes and lovely finds.

Two mags, two surprises, and two very big “thank you”s !

Are you having any trouble commenting here? I’ve had a couple of emails from people saying they can’t leave a comment. Frustratingly I am having the same issue when trying to comment on other blogs I read which are powered by Blogger. I can’t comment as me, anonymous, open id, or any other option.

I’ve also noticed that the profile view counter is stuck and doesn’t increase on my blog or some of the others I’m visiting.

Any ideas? Blogger Help has been no help.

If you have any ideas and can’t leave a comment, please send me an email: lisa [at] the red thread [dot] com [dot] au

Sooo frustrating!
