{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2017} The Art of Christmas by Tracey Mackie

There are some people in life who are naturally clever and artistic and well, brilliant. My friend Tracey Mackie is one such lady!

Tracey is an artist who creates masterpieces that deserve to be displayed in a gallery but luckily you can have one in your own house!

Her creations are contemporary, fresh and fun. She has this magnificent ability to make you smile by just looking at one of her pieces.

Offering bright, fun and quirky art she is your one stop gift buying shop. She also sell loads of other goodies such as cushion covers, tote bags, coasters and mugs.

Tracey can also do personalised work. Imagine how much of a favourite you would be if you commissioned Tracey to do your mum’s fur baby?  Winner! 18838806_944877758988110_5792543582602156974_n

{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2016}Tracey Mackie Artist makes Christmas happy

tracey-header

I literally cannot draw. Like I can scribble but when my DNA was being formed they forgot to add the little splash of creativity or art ability. That is the COMPLETE opposite of the gorgeous Tracey Mackie Artist. She is clever and smart and talented. She takes inspiration from the everyday and transforms it into masterpieces.

There is no secret I love local, but I especially love local when it is better than anyone else. Tracey Mackie Artist is beyond better, she is simply the best. westir

So many of my friends want a ‘gossip girls’ or ‘sugar lips’ to take pride of place in their home and for bloody good reason. Tracey Mackie Artist  offers fresh, contemporary creations that scream love and entertainment.

{Great Pieces} How can I do, I do, without you? The best way to ask is with WordsETC

It is an honour, a privilege so you may as well give them a lifelong keepsake.

Enter the fabulous team at WordsETC. A local business with talent to boot!i do without you

These are made using recycled card and have matching envelopes. O, I DIE!

You can find more information about these wonderful products on Facebook – ‘WordsETC’ or on their website at http://www.wordsetc.com.au/

{Little birdies} You can slobber on my Kleynimals

Every so often you have a ‘der’ moment. A moment when you stop and think ‘der, why didn’t I come up with that?’ Kleynimals is one of those products. Keys

Every baby-bird loves sucking/chewing/gnawing on keys but as a parent you constantly toss up the ‘but it will keep her quiet’ verses the ‘eww, germ, germ, germ’ thoughts when you see your little one sucky so diligently on your been-in-the-bottom-of-your-handbag-which-you-haven’t-cleaned-in-months-keys.

So introducing Eli the elephant, Gus the giraffe and Leo the lion also known as Kleynimals. They are non-toxic stainless steel ‘keys’ that your baby-birds can play with without the associated germs! They are fully dishwasher safe as well for easy cleaning!Kleynimals_Baby_grande

Simple, clever idea that I wish I had invented myself!

If you want to purchase some Kleynimals locally you can get them at Explore, Play, Learn for $28.50.

{Design} Frame it, cook it, love it

Some people are clever. Like not can-recite-the-full-version-of-Wannabe-by-the-Spice-Girls-16-years-after-its-release-date-clever but really actually clever.

Felicita Sala is one such person and she is Ah-mazing!

She designs illustrated recipes which are pieces of art themselves. Great for framing and decorating. Great for actually cooking.

You can purchase her work from Society6.com or check out her personal website at http://felicitasala.blogspot.it/
