A self-confessed magazine addict, I want to share a couple beauties with you. Firstly, fishhead magazine. Once you get past the name, it is a new Wellington-centric mag that was launched earlier this year. Still on the way to finding it’s niche, it’s definitely one to watch, especially seeing as they love craft so.
A rather thoughtful and well-written article about a bunch of indie crafters and designers (incl yours truly). See that table bottom left? That’s us having a ball at the Apartment Bar, Allen St, Wellington onTuesday nights from 5.30. You should totes join us!
I also had the pleasure of flicking through the new Extra Curricular mag yesterday – based in Auckland, Ellie is getting better and better at putting this together every issue. Absolutely worth your spare change, it would be a real shame to see this go the way of Staple and World Sweet World. So go on, buy it!

Once upon a time, I lived in Wellington. I loved it – loved walking the streets, popping in to Midnight Espresso or Deluxe to loiter over a coffee and read, mooching around looking at beautiful things and spying great graffiti. I’m now resident in another great place, the one and only Petone, but I do so miss being close to central Wellington.
Last night I had the great pleasure of joining some crafty types for a CraftUp at Blondini’s, upstairs at the Embassy. Driving in, the city showed me all the reasons why I love it – moody winter clouds, grey buildings and shining yellow lights. I adore being so close to the hills and the sea, and being able to walk from one end to the other.
It was a perfect evening for red wine, brownies, crafting and talking about crafty business and general gossip. The craft community really are so open and welcoming, and I always go away from catch ups with a big smile on my face. Last night in particular, a few plots were planned…so there is plenty to go on with in the background!
