Collabrate For A Cause

It is that time again........

Collabrate for a Cause is about to take over facebook. So I can hear you aksing what is it all about???
CFAC 2012 is a auction that will begin on Friday 27th July at 8pm EST and finish on Sunday 29th July at 8pm.

Jen Kennedy from Ainslee Fox(Ainslee fox page) started the Cause with the aim to promote friendship, understanding & fun throughout the facebook handmade community, while raising money for causes we are passionate about.

To contribute a item you must have a facebook page and also work on the item with someone else who also has a handmade page. Then a charity is chosen and any money raised in the austion will be donated to your chosen charity.

All you need to do is pop on over to the Collabrate 2012 Auction folder and you will find a 'HUGE' collection from the best from the facebook handmade community.( 2012 Participating Businesses)

Vintagebubbles this year was lucky enough to work with Karynne from Chook Shed Designs who makes the most amazing handmade tea sets. Make sure you pop on over and check out her page!!.
We decided to go for a more of a photo prop idea of a tea set and one of my mini hats both items can be for the young at heart or the older ones among us.

Our chosen charity is the Leukaemia Foundation 'Vision to Cure', 'Mission to Care' and are dedicated to the care and cure of patients and families living with leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders. This is a charity close to my heart with my brother losing his battle with the disease and something I grew up with during teens. A lot has progressed since my brothers passing and hopefully one day a cure will be found.

Once upon a time......

I was asked to make a dress and cape fitting for a Little Red Ridinghood shoot......WOW I swear the photographer read my mind as I love a fairy tale and Little Red ridinghood has to be a favorite also hence my logo :D

So off I went and dived into my Annela Hoey's fabric stash 'A walk in the forest' and my Whimsy Wonderland Collection was born.

I am so happy with this collection and instead of releasing it all at once I have staggered it so I could give 100% to each product and thanks to the lovely June over at
who photos were awesome!!
