Last week I finally figured out how to make the Uterus Mini Cushion in a manner that was not slow and ineffective!. I had been having problems with how to sew it in a way that allowed me to stuff it all effectively and after making up a template and being determined for success with the iron I got to work. I am happy with the end result!

Ovaries in a Jar are back!
I forgot all about Ovaries in a Jar! I really dropped the Ovary on that one! But now the Ovaries are in my Etsy shop in a cute little jar. They’ve been away since 2012.
I’ve also been thinking that I need to make the anatomy to suit the jar, not make the anatomy and try find a jar. I don’t want to keep buying jars when I have so many available to me already (I also collect them for Terrarium Workshops).
Hands On Brisbane-Workshops
Hands On Brisbane is a workshop program based in Brisbane, Australia that aims to deliver affordable art, craft and design workshops. We’ve just launched the Spring workshop program, including a few new workshops.
Hands On Brisbane is my “day job,” although I sometimes wonder how you choose which is the main job and which the extra. Hands On Brisbane brings me better pay than my own business, Your Organ Grinder, but I spend more time on Your Organ Grinder, so which is which? Well anyways, Hands On is one of the things I do.
This term I am taking 7 workshops, that includes 2 terrarium workshops and 2 screen printing ones, plus a resin workshop, shrinky dinks and polymer clay. I’ve been teaching Terrariums for ages and probably showed over 150 people how to put together a Terrarium. My favourite workshop is definitely Shrinky Dinks, the participants get so excited about the shrinking plastic and want to make more and more. Every time every person is thrilled with the results.

I signed up to Pinterest quite a while ago but didn’t use it much at first. Earlier this year during a business overhaul (when you have all this energy to do amazing things with your business which pretty soon disappears under the millions of things you have to do) I decided to try to get into it more and I have been using it pretty solidly ever since. I enjoy the ease of Pinterest, adding things to your board with a simple click (and I really enjoy adding things to the wrong boards…cute animal in Savoury Meals and Snacks). Recipes are especially easy to save with Pinterest.
I do try to promote Your Organ Grinder on Pinterest when I think of it but often I just open it up, pin some cute animals or food ,(I follow a board based around Lemon sweets and I just love all the Lemon recipes) and get overwhelmed when someone has been pinning something with the same theme all day…
