INTERVIEW WITH
ELENA from EP DESIGNS
……………………………………………………………………………………………………



♥ HOW DID YOU FIND OUT ABOUT THE HANDMADE SHOW?

I met Celeste Wong (the show organiser) via Twitter & we soon discovered that we lived close by to each other. This was during my EP Designs Christmas sale held from home. Celeste came along to my sale & we got to know each other. She discussed her plans for the handmade show & I put up my hand to try it out & be part of it.


♥ TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR CRAFT & THE MEDIUMS YOU LIKE TO USE:
I recreate items (new or old) into decorative home wares - anything from furniture, wall art, silverware or any item that inspires me. They’re usually given a painted finish – I mainly use acrylic paint on my work; But I also love creating anything that comes to mind – tassels, table runners, notebooks, thows, keepsake boxes, chessboards - I’ll give just about anything a go. This may include using materials such as fabric, beaded fringing, handmade paper, gold/silver gilt etc



♥ WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR CREATIONS?
I like to use colour, I love to paint & I love to give old things new life – but in all I love all things beautiful. Most works are one-of-a-kind, unique creations that are handmade & not massed produced. They’re different to anything I’ve seen & that makes me feel good & inspires me to keep on developing my style.


♥ WHAT INSPIRES YOU MOST?
Hmmm, this is a bit tricky because lots of things inspire me – op shops & recycling yards (this is where I find most items I recreate), browsing through antique stores, walking through homeware stores, looking at beautiful things, roses, blue skies & even sitting in a cafĂ© having real coffee, something deliciously sweet & chatting about life with a friend can get me all inspired…. the smell of paint gets me going too, lol.


♥ WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY?
Usually it’s the simple things that make me happy depending on what’s happening or what’s needed at the time - sharing time with family & close friends; making new friends; sunny days, the beach, lots of colour; being creative & creating something beautiful; going for a walk in the evening during summer; bringing a smile to a sad face.


♥ FAVOURITE WEBSITES?
i won’t start naming them because i love visiting lots of sites belonging to creative people. i especially love finding aussie creative bloggers – it’s a great way to get to know other creative aussies. if you visit my blog you’ll get to find some of them. http://epdesigns.com.au/blog

♥ WHAT CAN'T YOU LIVE WITHOUT?
Chocolate! Chocolate! Cafes, real coffee & delicious desserts! .… did I mention chocolate?




♥ WHERE CAN PEOPLE FIND YOUR CRAFTS & MORE ABOUT YOU?
My work is currently sold privately via my yearly Exhibition & Sale- invitations are sent out to people who subscribe.

Plus my soon to open Zibbet.com store will have some of my recreations listed there www.zibbet.com/TimelessTreasures

… And of course I’ll be exhibiting my work at The Handmade Show.

The Handmade Show (January Edition)

It's been a whirlwind month, so I do apologize for the late-ness of everything.
However, a lot of things have been moving along, and applicantions for the next market are now open! The next post will be about the upcoming market in March, but for this one, let's do a quick recap of the January edition.

In January, we had a total of 5 show participants. We had the honour of inviting: Holi Goddess, Vintage sew and so, Ep Designs , BowerBird Inc and Little Waltz to come and share a beautiful afternoon with us at the Oakleigh RSL.

Here's some photos of the day:
