{ the  tierlantyn'kies countdown }
As you all know by now, my Miss Milly is going to Tierlantyn'kies Kuier & Koopfees from 01 - 05 October 2014 in Pretoria! The countdown to it, is extremely nerve wrecking and exciting all at the same time.

{ ** new producttealight candles in glass jars }
I liked the idea of making tealight candles wrapped in washi tape... however it came with a few challenges. I decided to package it in glass jars so that it can serve as a gift to someone. It comes with a gift tag that matches the washi tape used on the tealight candles and is such a great gift idea!

{ ** new product: baby clipboard }
After I launched the A4 clipboard #lanklewedieclipboard I stumbled across the little ones { A5 } and it was love at first sight. I am making a few to try out at Tierlantyn'kies to see if there is a market for it. I made myself one to match her bigger sister, and I adore the set!

{ ** new productframe }
I played around with some of the painted laser cut wood that I use for my other Miss Milly products and some washi tape and came up with these small frames. They are perfect for a craft room or nursery. I kept the frames neutral in white and natural wood and added some color with the washi tape and laser cut wood.

{ washi tape earrings }
Gone are the days of making a few pairs of washi tape earrings at a time! I had to seriously bulk up on stock but I loved every minute of playing around with new washi tape designs for the earrings.

{ gold washi tape cards & envelopes }
Who would have thought that gold could make for such a pretty picture? I love how the card and envelope sets came out...

{ washi tape brooches }
As I enjoyed working with the gold washi tape so much, I decided to try out a few washi tape brooches in gold, grey and silver and I am totally in love with it!

{ washi tape cards & envelopes }
I just can't get enough of the happy Spring colors used in these single cards & envelopes! It is such a pretty addition to any gift!

{ washi tape tins }
The washi tape tins are my flavor of the month! Or should I say week?! I played around with some black and white washi tape, as not every one is a pastel girl like me, and I must admit that I am over the moon about the way they came out!

{ pretty proteas }
I bought these pretties at a florist in Pretoria to use in my stall at Tierlantyn'kies. I can't get enough of them and love the soft color of it!

Finally! It is here. After arriving early evening in Pretoria, we offloaded all the Miss Milly screens, tables and stock and started midday on the Tuesday to put everything up. I was truly in my happy place and had to pinch myself to make sure it was really my dream busy happening! The stall changed about a billion times as I was setting up and making sure everything is displayed at it's best and then I changed it again! Keep following along as I will do a full post on Miss Milly at Tierlantyn'kies!
