Struck... truly

I'm never quite "over" blissful feelings of my province/country...
Like lunchtime soccer games on dusty patches of open ground in the industrial areas, or kids in school uniforms walking in cheerful groups on the outskirts of Johannesburg's center, slightly chilled Spring mornings with contrasting warm afternoons....and the lush look of greenery pushing its way into view everywhere..... *sigh*

And the music that sets this all into perspective this week.... Queens of the Stone Age and Eagles of Death Metal...

I find appreciation for the contrasts, visual and otherwise in the country I hold so close to my heart. I may not be "patriotic", but I'm happy to be here :)

...with this renewal and deep breath, we're 3 days away from our 3rd last Wyetti Market of 2012.
The stock that we'll have at the stall is just so so so rad!

I can hardly wait to put it all on display for everyone to see (and buy)

If you've been visiting our Etsy store you'll notice some listings going up now and again. Also keep your eyes open for an end of year clearance code :)
I'll most probably make this available during November and possibly into December.

Alot of new things are being planned for the new year, as I try to expand the store.
I know it'll be fun and rad ;)

But with that little update, time to get back to my day job...

Big smiles...

Well... still recovering from a long day out on Sunday.
But, I am so extremely happy and thankful to EVERYONE that came to buy and look in at our stall.

3 of my new necklaces inspired by the "theme" of Sunday...sold out!
we were barely unpacked when the first of the 3 sold. The other 2 sold in moments after.
So thank you everyone for not only liking what I make/stock but just for coming out to make the market a success.
Boo to those that didn't get dressed up, where's your inner child?!
To the knights and trolls and middle earth kids, you were all so amazing!!

Sadly, because of battery issues, I didn't take any pictures, but I'll see if I can get ahold of some so that if you were in Gauteng and didn't go, you can see what you missed!

Then store news:

Freedom v.1 tees - we still have loads of stock from this run of prints, so grab yourself a shirt either from our Etsy or Bigcartel store for UNDER $15 (excluding shipping).
South african buyers, this tee will cost you R95 (postage is R35).

Freedom v.2 - thanks to John at Nuclear Design for our upcoming Tee collab design. As our stock lowers on the other tees, we'll setup a run of these new unisex tees, so watch out!

Squareheads - because of our single workloads and projects, this project is moving really slow for John and I, but it WILL be happening, so keep watching out for it.

The Quotable Zoo - my new sideproject...
Those who know me best know that I am very much a stationary/typography/word/quotes/font junky, so I decided to create an outlet for it ;)
I have registered a store with Etsy, but it's not ready yet to make an official "opening". I am so excited to start listing prints!

Again, thank you to those that read this blog, support our Etsy store and who follow us on Twitter. It is YOU that will help me take this to where I'm dreaming to go with it.

Much love. Blessed be,

ye olde...

I'm in a rush of mad inspiration for new stock for tomorrow's market... LOVING what's coming out of my workspace today... even if it's inbetween stable chores, clothes washing and page editing...
of course, I have my anime playlist on the media player too... ;)

oh the makery!

And then if you haven't spotted our new bracelet range on our Etsy store (for shame!)...

Now... back to getting stock ready for tomorrow's Medieval affair! Hope you come visit! ...

Tuesday, September 4, 2012


We're about 4 days away from our first attendance at a Medieval Festival!
My partner in crime for the day will be my stablemate, Michelle.
We'll be dressing up as stall weary peasants in our modesty to bring you some very awesome stock!

For the fellow horsenutters there, Wonder Struck Inc will not only have lots of horsey themed jewellery, but we're also sponsoring the prize in the fancy dress competition!

Though my entire being is in desperate need for sleep catchups, I'll be working on *lots*! Of stock for the occasion.

9 September at Lafayette Country Club.
From 12pm.
61 Rose rd, Kyalami, Gauteng.
Be there!!

Also "hi" to our new twitter followers!
