my wandering heart, enhances the everyday

A little bit more Pia magic ~ she has captured her My Heart Wanders brisbane book launch on her on her blog.  I posted about this beautiful day previously.

This book launch was the creation of the gorgeous Kylie from paper boat press,

who inspired Brisbane’s creative community to celebrate the event.

There was much anticpiation when the raffle was drawn

~ many of Brisbane’s most creative and generous crafters had contributed their artistic delights to the prize.

To discover the beautiful treasures they make and sell, click on the links below…

A visual delight were  the garlands made by the lovely Kristina from old yarns

– she had collected pages from old french books, maps, and soft blue card that matched the colours of my book cover, cutting them into pretty circles and flower motifs and sewing them together to make long garlands which were strung between the stone pillars.

Photos were taken by Natalie McComas who is a Brisbane-based photographer, and Pia was very gracious to mention fellow bloggers who were there to enjoy the moment….

Among the beautiful Brisbane bloggers who came along for the event was A-M from the house that A-M built – I’ve been following her blog for a few years now, inspired by her two beautiful boys who always write her the most incredible letters (I posted one here some years back). It was a treat to meet the lovely and talented fashion designer Mady from an abundance of and her friend dayle of green bean food.  There was also Tracey from Quiet Paws, Ana from coleccionando estrellas, and Cate fromA White Carousel. I also met new blogger Hayley from stylimerence who interviewed me on the day, you can read her beautiful post about the event right here.
