ABCD Meet Up

Last night I went to the first ever Sydney ABCD Meet Up organised by the very sweet Steph from Bondville (it was so nice to meet her in person) and Lisa from theredthread. Over 30 bloggers turned out for the event!

My new bud Kate from Another Donkey Design and I went together (she is my nearby neighbour - so cool!)

I got to have a great chat with some lovely bloggers such as Jaclyn, Leanne, Amanda, Sarah and Jess. It was a lovely evening of blogging, crafty banter.

There was even a goodie bag... we were asked to bring along 30 things for the bags - I was very slack and only included a business card but there was some awesome stuff.... here is Minky surrounding himself in all the goodie bag loveliness :)

How was your Friday? Ahhhh.... almost the weekend!

Had a very bad night last night as Will had a bad bout of croup and coughed till 4am! So I'm pretty much a walking zombie. Looking forward to chilling out over the weekend.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

P.S. oh and ABCD stands for 'Artists, Bloggers, Crafters & Designers' in case you were wondering.


  1. It looks like you had a whale of a time, Janette! How delightful. I only wish there was such a thing down here. I may need to organise one! Fingers crossed you both have a better night tonight. J x

  2. oh i had fun too!! I didnt get to meet everyone though - looking forward to the next one..more mingling!!

  3. How lovely to meet up with some fellow bloggers - sounds like a wonderful catch up. Poor Will and poor you :( Hope he is feeling better over the weekend and that you're able to sneak in a snooze xx

  4. Sounds like so much fun. I hope Will starts feeling better and you're able to squeeze in a nap tonight!

  5. What a lovely idea! Great opportunity to meet up with "like minded" friends. I have done a little posting about the beautiful Wedding Print I received from you. The photo is a little bit dinky and certainly doesn't do justice to just how beautiful it is. Thank you so much. I know Roland and Rita are just going to LOVE it - they will probably both cry!
    Have a great weekend. ;)Sharyne

  6. So glad we went together. It was great fun. Hope will is on the mend and you get your date night. Ps Ollie still spotty!!! Have a great weekend.

  7. That looks like a fabulous group Janette. Sometimes I really wish I lived in Sydney! Hope Will is feeling better today and you manage to get lots of lovely rest. x

  8. Sounds like a bit of fun. I think it is nice to be able to meet bloggers in person. Glad you enjoyed yourself and hope you have a restful weekend. ;-)

  9. Janette,
    For some reason I thought of you when I purchased my ticket through my 'Books & Nooks' club - to attend Kelly Doust's 'High Tea at the Victorian Room Book Launch' on Sunday 21st in Sydney.

    Are you going? I read her new book cover to cover and cannot wait to indulge in gourmet sandwiches, champagne and sweets! I have advertised on my blog for a girl-date (attending High Tea is not really Paul's cup of tea) - I thought you would probably be going, I know how you also love, beauty, vintage and style. If you are going perhaps we could say hi over a canape?!? Should be a lovely afternoon of grace and style and decorum.

    I always enjoy perusing your blog and catching up on your successes - well done! Hope your little man is adjusting to little school - hope mum is coping with that too.

  11. Wow, it sounds like you had such a fabulous time!! So great to hear. How wonderful to actually meet some of your bloggy friends:) Hope Will is feeling better and that you have all caught up on your sleep. Hugs as always ~ Txx

  12. Hope Will is a lot better and you had a relaxing Saturday. G

  13. What a great idea! Sounds like you all had a fab time. Hope Will is on the mend and you all get some well deserved rest soon.
