I haven't been blogging that much lately, but it's definitely not because I'm in hibernation! There's a couple of exciting things happening soon, and at the top of the list is Made of Awesome's first exhibition! This year we will be exhibiting as part of the tasty annual Popsicle event, organised by the fantastic team at OnWilliam.
Partnered with Tu, we will be showing off new artwork, lasercuts and cards as well as old favourites. Come and enjoy cupcakes, drinks and artwork at our Opening Night on Wednesday 21 September, 6pm. We'll ALL be there and would love to meet you.
If you can't make it on the night (boo), the exhibition runs from 21 September - 16 October, so you've got no excuses! :)
Popsicle is Perth Fashion Festival's annual tasty treat. Popping up in 11 locations around Northbridge, follow the trail to taste test each flavour.
A selection of WA's exciting up and coming designers have collaborated with Northbridge independent fashion boutiques, giving shop windows a makeover and filling the shelves with their handmade wares.
Hop over to the Popsicle website to find out more about the designers part of this years' event!
Popsicle runs from 21 - 27 September 2011.
Outskirts is also happening during Popsicle, filling Northbridge with over 100 events in 34 venues for a one day festival. The program is jam packed with street stalls, workshops, exhibitions, pop up stores and laneway events.. super exciting! You can grab a special Passport guide (pictured above) which will help you navigate through the excitement.
Outskirts runs on Sunday 25 September.
Next to roll up is Pecha Kucha Volume 9, which is happening on the night of Outskirts to wrap up the event. I will be speaking at Pecha Kucha about littlemiso, my creative process and insights from running a creative business.
I'm not really one for public speaking, so this is definitely the most nerve racking thing happening at the moment! If you're interested in coming along to enjoy a drink and some creative talk, it will be held on Sunday 25 September at the State Theatre Courtyard, entry is $5 at the door. There will be 10 creatives in total speaking about their work for 6.6 minutes each.

On other news, I've started a new have full time job (yay!), am preparing for markets during CHOGM (more on that later), have been designing some new lasercuts (oooO) and have been preparing wholesale orders in time for Christmas (what, already?!)
I love September! :)
