I absolutely love it when my clients send in photos of their children playing with my handmade creations!
How adorable are these two?! "Dorothy" with special guest appearance from 'Mini Magnus' as "Toto" enjoying book week together, and this young prince enjoying his custom made felt crown.
Feel free to send in photos of your children enjoying their @lovejamincreations - I really do receive so much joy in my heart when I see the smile on their faces 💕
It's raining and cold in Hobart today. We have a house full of snuffles and have settled in for a day on the couch in our pjs! Just snapped this photo of Evie, she is in love with this book gifted to us by the lovely Alice from @tailoredtasmania 😘. Moments after the photo she had Arlo and me sitting on the floor and was reading her very own interpretation of Nevil the Devils adventures 😂 - Suki X
All packaged up and ready to post!
Who else loves packaging...... 🙋🏼So satisfying! Anyhoo, only one of each left now, but more fabric is on its way from the printers, and due to land in about 3 weeks.....🌱Bel xx

Made by local ceramicist Stephen Brown these dishes slip cast from his own design. Glazed with a gorgeous soft Shino glaze that looks slightly green in natural light and has a sublte terracotta coloured fleck. ...

I love knitting there is something very calming about it. This hasn't always been the case, when I first started I'd spend night after night on the couch cursing, frogging my pattern and re casting on! My partner use to sit there and laugh saying "I thought knitting was meant to be relaxing?". Iv never felt so determined at anything and now it is relaxing! I'm always amazed at how I can turn a long piece of string (technically yarn) into a piece of fabric and are having so much fun designing simple classic patterns that really showcase the beautiful yarns we have available. Mind you I can't promise that I don't have the odd curse when I drop a stitch or frog a pattern😜 - Suki X
Tuesday Favorites 💗
The Artistry studs remind me of a water colour painting. Each with it's own unique character and texture.
There are a few New colours on the website, go see if you can find a pair that calls your name! 😘
New Organic Blanket designs have just been loaded onto my website! I'm testing these styles out to see if they're a permanent part of my collection... I'm thinking yes?!? Only 2 of each for now (direct link in profile) 🌱 xx
Since our stockist @DuncanMeerding lost all but 5% of his vision, an alter-sensory world has guided his now iconic Tasmanian lighting design. Next month, he will be joining Tasmanian adventurer Paul Pritchard @pritch5 on a 6 week tandem trike journey from Lake Eyre to Mt Kosciuszko, to challenge the misconceptions around what people with disabilities can do. "Duncan's got two good legs — I've got one and a half good legs — and I'm counting on him to be the engine, and I'll be the eyes." said Paul recently. We are forever inspired by the ways our makers create and the stories they share through their work. We will look forward to following Duncan, Paul and the rest of the team on their journey.
♡ MAKERS NEST FINAL DAY ♡
It's the final day of @makersnest Eastlands! Last chance for this month to grabs some gorgeous hand made goodies x
Please pop in and show your support for Tasmanian Made 🤗
There is some exclusive Mummy's Pretties jewellery on offer and yesterday was the last re-stock so get in quickly!
New handforged BBQ tool range coming soon. Including these pig tail flippers with a forged iron spike, Blackwood handle and copper ferrule. These are my take on a popular 🇺🇸 design but not seen much in OZ. Works well for flipping steak without disturbing the crust or scraping up grease from the plate. Excuse my video skills! #bbq#bbq 🍖 #steak#bacon#handforgedsteel#blacksmithing#blacksmith#tasdesigned
It been pretty quite here lately but have been working hard on wholesale orders which always keep me busy! Our children's clip on earring are proving particularly popular lately- these are header to one of our wonderful interstate stockists @withsugarportdouglas
Campo de Flori // Ceramics Open Studio
Only 1 more sleep until I have the pleasure of supporting my friend and neighbour Lisa Britzman for her Open Studio high up in the hills above Glen Huon. This is also notable as my shortest travel to an event so far as well as the first time I actually had to adjust a pressurestat due to significant variation in altitude #lifegoals#Repost @campo_de_flori
