Looking for some affordable art for your walls? Look no further, 'stick meon' has come up with some fabulous vinyl creatures to adorn your walls, whether you are renting (no nails) or doing up your childs bedroom (or in fact your own!) we now have the range available. These will surely catch your imagination and soon you'll have little birdies fluttering above doorways and rabbits dressed for dinner popping out from behind your couch.
Proudly made and designed in Melbourne, 'ho hum-hummingbirds', 'peeping cardinals', well dressed 'Sir rabbit' in floral or spotted jackets and the 'oh little bird.'
Keep your eyes peeled as they are sure to fly, and hop out the door!

improvement in the studio

There have been a few things that we still haven't managed to find time for since opening the shop and today we almost finished one on the long list of jobs- we are giving you a sneak peek to see what you all think of a growing collection we have: 

Can you guess what they are? Oh, and we'll post the finished piece so you can feast your eyes!

something for your diaries

Make note people, next Wednesday will see us climbing to The Order of Melbourne not only for a well deserved beverage but to take part in bidding for handmade jewellery from this years N.M.I.T Advanced Diploma of Engineering Technology (or, the Jewellery diploma!) 

You can start looking at 6pm, then the bidding will kick off at 7pm. 
Not only will you be able to pick yourself up something hand crafted but you'll be taking part in the fundraising needed for their Graduate show held later this year.

it's a wrap

After receiving requests for wrapping paper in our store, we embarked on todays little project, hand screen printing our very own. We have used a fun collection of colours to print some of our most current designs and they seem good enough to collect. 
Printed on recycled brown paper, then trimmed to a standard of 600mm x 800mm
They look even better in real life and are available for $4.50 a piece.

and the hours

I found it quite hard to capture the hours, as Sunday is such a beautiful day and the sun is shining bright! Mmm lovely.
You can see a bit of our hand screen printed wallpaper which sits behind the door. It kind of looks like millions of tiny umbrellas or little mushrooms- but then some people thinks it looks like little spaceships! What ever takes your fancy.

This week we received a box of goodies from our Tasmanian friends take a peek below. The necklaces are made of lovely little wooden beads strung onto ribbon with a great acrylic bird cage and bird cut out. They all come in their own little gloss white box- super!

Along with those goodies we got another delivery of their plain painted beads in red, white and natural. And another great selection of the brooches they do- thank you!

DIY Signage

For those who have managed to make the trip out to Five Boroughs you will know to look out for the duck egg blue repeat design on our window. For those who haven't made it out, now when you do, you can look out for the duck egg blue and cream repeat design that we finished off today.
We even have our shop hours on the door! Something we have been hanging out to have up for a little while now. We love graphics and typography, so we are happy to have a bit more on the front of our shop. 
We'll update a photo of the hours tomorrow.
Oh and for the chocolate lovers, we have just received another order of the wonderful Rewind Coco Smooth (hot chocolate) so pop on in and grab your loved one- or yourself a great canister filled with the good stuff. 
Have a great weekend.
