New stuff....

When I got sparky 18 months ago (that's my laser cutter/ engraver for those who don't know), I had wanted to engrave some lockets for the range. However I had been a bit intimidated about it due to outside issues I won't go into here.

However in the spirit of the New Year and "no regrets" Here is a sneak peek at one of the pieces from the new Red Revival range. Most of these designs sat in my sketch book for 18 months.

I love the idea of doing both sides, so there is no "wrong" side.

There will be more designs and colours coming soon and I'll be adding photos to the Facebook page as they progress.

Oh and Happy New Year!!!! Em xxx

My 2011....

I was inspired by Kyla of Little Bird after her blog post to take stock of the year that has been. It's been a big year for both me and Red Revival. It's an interesting project to make a "list"of your year, try it, you just might be surprised.

The year started with water, lots of water, I watched and helped friends stricken by floods.
I kissed my girl goodbye as she started started her journey at school and could hardly believe she was that same baby who fought so hard to live through open heart surgery at 4 weeks old.
I exhibited at my first trade show helped by a lovely friend and mentor.
I got new opportunities to wholesale Red Revival across the country in beautiful stores.
I doubted myself many times.
I got a second honeymoon with the love of my life.
I fell in love with Tasmania.
I learnt new skills.
I failed.
I succeeded.
(repeated last 2 points various times throughout the year)
We bought some land.
We sold a beautiful house.
We made plans to build a beautiful house.
I exhibited in a bigger way at my second trade show helped my another wonderful friend and mentor.
I got more lovely stockists.
We had a difficult diagnosis with our boy.
We moved.
I lost a favourite aunt.
I cursed cancer.
I got creative block.
I had a break through and realised I had been intimidated about using an item I had long wanted in my range by someone I cut out of my life 18 months ago.
I gave myself a good talking to about letting things go.
I felt excited about designing and creating again.

Bring on 2012!

Merry Christmas... From us to you!

Miss Betty (one of my display girls you may remember from LiS ) Has got her tinsel on to wish you and yours a lovely Christmas.

It has been a wonderful year for Red Revival and I feel very blessed to have over 40 fabulous stockists all over this beautiful country. We have big plans for 2012 (including getting our new house and studio built), but this weekend we'll be focusing on enjoying family and friends and hope you are all doing the same. Thanks for sharing our journey with us this year.

Advance Purchase...

image from here

I've always loved this Cole & Son wallpaper and I was super excited when it came from the UK this week. It's for a wall in our bedroom in our "yet to be built" house......

Well I had to buy it while the dollar is strong right?? Well that's my story and I'm sticking to it lol.
