We set off yesterday to Life Instyle which is our favourite trade fair for products. It only happens twice a year, once in Sydney in February and again in August in Melbourne, so we get our butts to it every year cos its pretty much like Xmas shopping for the shop! This year was going to be a little bit trickier as I am now 30 weeks pregnant and my Pelvis has not had a good adventure so far...I have SPD which basically means my pelvis is WAY too loose and just grinds and parties and wiggles all day long which cause pain. SO, off we went with my new wheel chair and crutches. We found many new and lovely things which will be in store in the coming weeks and some companies have even sent confirmation emails today for products which is very organised which means new bits could get to the shop as quick as next week! We took a few little photo's of some of our new products on the way, but between trying to push wheelchairs and ordering and trying not to faint from pain we couldnt take as many as we wanted. But you'll still enjoy!! Concept Japan is new to Little Paper Lane. We are excited for the Piperoid paper robots to arrive! Iggy has already looked at them and told me i have to bring one home for him! MIRIAM COX Paper cuts had such beautiful cards and her actual papercuts are amazing PONY RIDER Had such a great stand and i really want to make the little Jars most importantly TELEGRAM as per usual had lots of our favourite brands including brand new MT MASKING TAPE from Japan with so many new colours I actually had to have a cold drink from all the excitement YELLOW OWL WORKSHOP has always been a favourite and it was so exciting to see the new packaging and new stamps we will be getting soon! TMOD yet again was probably one of the best stands with the most creative and fun displays and their new products are very spesh!! including new scratchie Invites how AWESOME!!!

Do u remember in art class doing lino cutting? I loved it! Art class was always such a great class for me. Even though i am not particularly 'arty' although i still wish to this day i was able to just draw amazing pictures or paint something inspiring, i definitely have creative bones, just not in the i can draw a pretty picture kind of way! But i want to try new creative things this year and after having a little read through the very delicious blog Oh So Beautiful Paper i stumbled upon a tutorial about block printing! How Much fun does it look?!?!?! Katherine Watson at Oh So Beautiful Paper
