Merry Christmas 2011!









Dear lovely blog readers. Shelley and I have had a wonderful year with Sweet William - we have been flattered by some great features, our online sales and markets have been amazing and we have thoroughly enjoyed all the positive support. Sweet William started as a small creative outlet for the two of us and we are proud of how it has grown into a something that enables us to keep being creative and passionate about what we do. We are taking a break from now until the 10th of January. ( I am going camping with my family and Shelley is finishing off her house!) We wish everyone a blessed and creative Christmas and all the very best for 2012. Here are some shots of my lounge room in all it's pink and silver hand made Christmas glory! Paula x

Last Christmas Market for Sweet William in Melbourne



I will be in Brunswick Town Hall at the Sister's Market this Friday evening and Saturday. Here are a few Christmas pieces that will be at the Sweet William stall. After a pretty busy season I must say we are looking forward to a well deserved break - Sweet William's on line shops will be closing on Sunday the 18th until the New Year. Hope everyone is enjoying getting into the festive season.

Late night Christmas shopping at Scarlet Jones





Can you spot the Sweet William 'touch the sky' card?




One of my most favoured shops in Melbourne is Scarlet Jones on Auburn Road. I love how everything is thrown together so easily and makes such beautiful imagery, which has recently been posted on the Scarlet Jones facebook page. The good news is that they are open tonight until 9pm and are offering a 10% discount on most items! Yay. The other good news is that they stock Sweet William LaLaLand cards! I hope all your Christmas shopping is going smoothly.

'tis the season











Gosh it has been pretty busy here at Sweet William! Now I find myself a few weeks away from Christmas, the kids are desperate to put the tree up and I am in need of some festive inspiration. Here are a few images that have caught my eye and will help me get our home and hearts ready for this special holiday time. I am loving all the candy stripes and pretty colours around at the moment - happy times! All links to these images can be found in my pinterest board here.

at the markets

Just a quick post of Sweet William and some other retailers at Magnolia Square in Malvern Town Hall. Above are: beautiful products by Memi designs, Lynne in her lovely Scarlet Jones stall and Sweet William. It has been a wonderful event so far - we are there until 4pm on Saturday. I have had such lovely and supportive comments from people, repeat buyers and customers coming especially to look for my new work. One lady stopped to tell me how beautiful her feather print, bought at a previous market, looks in a silver frame. It has all been very encouraging.
