{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2017} Chalk up some goodies this Christmas

I LOVE this business. Its the beautiful combination of talent, a hard working mama and just brilliant style. thumbnail_IMG_9199

Chalk. Creative Designs is owned and operated by the gorgeous Amy Keech and provides all things graphic design. Think:  wedding stationary and styling, business stationary, logos, prints, birthday boards, signs, milestones cards and birth announcements.

This little business was started in May 2015 whilst Amy was on maternity leave and has grown significantly since that time! Amy has grand plans for the future of Chalk. Creative Designs and trust me when I say you want to be along for the ride! thumbnail_IMG_8899

I think the best part of Chalk. Creative Designs is that you can actually see that she is a true perfectionist when it comes to designing and the genuine love she has for the art of design is visible in every piece she creates!

If you want to see Amy’s work in real life make sure you pop into WedFest at BoxGrove on 28 January 2018. thumbnail_IMG_8322

{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2017} Mayfield Is the Perfect Christmas Gift

If you follow the blog at all, you will know the eternal love affair I have with Mayfield Garden. It is a spectacular slice of heaven gorgeously positioned between Bathurst and Oberon and is literally a whimsical little getaway from the real world.

If you follow this link you can see for yourself the wonder that is Mayfield ->  Magic of Mayfield Video  15774794_1534919409868677_1770834628648578297_o

It is open spaces, quiet moments. It is green grass and a secluded grotto. It is feeling like there is no one around, but also the coolest place on the planet. They are open 363 days a year (only being closed for Christmas and Boxing Day)

I was thrilled to learn that the White Party will be back in the early new year and that is one date certainly set in my diary. I can’t tell you enough just how fun the party is and you need to gather your squad and get tickets ASAP!16836371_1603146223045995_2522223762439251135_o

You can grab tickets for the white party here -> Event Brite – White Party Tickets or otherwise make sure you get your Autumnfest 2018 tickets from here -> Event Brite – Autumnfest. I promise you – you won’t be disappointed!

Mayfield is on 36 acres of beautiful Australian land and there is also a nursery, water garden and a cafe. It really is the most spectacular way to spend your day. During the fesitval periods they even open up the private gardens! Oh La La!! 24131878_1910527092307905_1220542948780837461_o

{Christmas Prizeapolooza 2016} Tinkered By and loved

A little while ago on the blog I showed my love for a beautiful little business called TinkeredBy and I am still as much in love. This business is absolutely wonderful, not only offering sensational and fabulous pieces but also helping people.

Run by creative sister duo, Kate Boston and Rachael Steadman TinkeredBy is more than just a shop, it is a movement.

kates

TinkeredBy  is all about the truly hand made. They support sustainable products that are sourced with a sense of conscience. This business has a beautiful spot in my heart because not only are chasing their own dreams, but helping to build brighter futures for those around them.

TinkeredBy are your go-to for quality handmade homewares and jewellery. There is nothing matchy-matchy and you know that wearing one of the TinkeredBy creations you are one of a kind.

My very favourite part about Tinkerked By is that I can read the actual real life story of the artist who created my purchase. That is incredibly special to know the story behind the art or jewellery that is going to come into my home. 2collageblog

 

Tinkerked By really is creating products that better the world and using business to inspire change.

You can purchased directly from their website, or alternatively you could host your very own Trunk Show.

{Christmas Prizeapolooza} JASIT Up with style

I LOVE this business. Like, cannot tell you what a fantastically brilliant idea it is. Plus, Jasmine the owner/operator/actual real-life-talented person is so friendly!

She runs the beauty that is Jasit Up – Hand Stamped Artisan Jewellery.

Jasit Up has been operating since July 2012 and provides quality sterling silver pendants and bangles which can be stamped with anything you like! Think: quotes, names, dates, random information. That’s the best bit, it is completely up to you!jasitup2

This business was created with love by this gorgeous mumma when she realised that there was nothing available this side of the mountains for a reasonable price offering this service!  After many a sleepless night and hours upon hours of research, Jasit Up was born!

The best bit is that Jasmine has extensive experience working with jewellery. Prior to the kick-off of Jasit Up she worked for over 3 years with a local jewellery retailer and there was able to develop a deep understanding of quality products and excellent service. bangle

Jasit Up offers free delivery in Bathurst and can usually complete any order received with a week! (Sometimes, this can be quicker if needed!)

Over the last 18 months, Jasit Up has grown extensively, there are always new and exciting designs being added to the selection.

Our favourite new pieces are the new ‘lily’ premium range. These are BEAUTIFUL. Made from 2.5mm thick solid sterling silver they are such a affordable price for such amazing quality!pendant

All products are hand stamped by Jasmine which allow a deeper stamping and impression into the silver, rather than say engraving. This adds to the beauty, and last factor of each piece. It also adds a unique look that you are unlikely to find anywhere else.

Jasit Up is SO incredibly well priced (I swear it’s a ploy to make you buy two!) and you get that good ol’ fashioned country customer service that you can only get from a local. Plus, she offers free clean and repairs at any market she attends!
