Having fun with Peg & Kate

When Rob from the QT contacted me to do a story on Peg & Kate I was over the moon. Then it dawned on me, they are coming to my home to do the photo shoot. Eek! I had "crap" (excuse the expression) everywhere!

So after a mad clean up, I dug out all of my stock that was packed in boxes from the launch of the Boutique Markets at Portside. And put together some displays.

I love this little desk. I picked it up from an auction in Bangalow. I think I paid $40 for it. But it makes a great homework station for my daughter.

After putting together some displays of Pencils and the sort, the guys from the QT were only interested in the human interest side of the story and took photos of me.... After much protest, they still wouldn't agree to air brush out the bags under my eyes... something about journalistic integrity. Ha!

I love messing about with my stock and taking shots, so as soon as the guys from the QT had left I started experimenting with some shots of my own. (dont get to excited, they are only on the iphone)

I think they look good. I am a little biased though.

I'm hopeless at decision making so here is another very similar photo. I like them both!

Anyway, Rob Lockyear was lovely, and so to were his colleagues. I look forward to
reading his story in the QT. Fingers crossed it is published online. Thanks Rob.

Hi Kate,
Thank you for the kind comment on my blog. I have a 4 1/2 year old boy (and 18 also a boy and 20 yr old daughter) so making gorgeous things for boys is easy. I love all that arrr me hearties and giddy up well as the pretty in pink things as well. I popped over and looked at your blog and wow, for someone only new to this you have done so well, your blog is so interesting and nice to read...having my first cup of coffee, reading emails and blog catching up while the little one has a huge sleep-in! So it'd be great to keep in touch and read what you are up to. Keep up the good work!
All the best
