Listening to:

Have you heard of the Creative Women's Circle? the:
"is a networking group for women involved in creative industries to share information, inspiration and ideas."
Last year they also published a book which is a collection of interviews with 
14 creative Australia women.
Recently they hosted their first Sydney talk, it was lovely listening to the stories of Julie Paterson and how her textile business 'cloth' came to be.

Julie asked us to finger knit while listening to her collection of memories and experiences, it was a lovely way to spend a little time and get together.

That was then followed a week later by the ABCD meet up - which combined with Sydney Instagrammers! This must have worked it's charm on me as i hardly snapped any shots at all
once i entered this world! Luckily the lovely Steph has more comprehensive visuals here

We even had a visit from a travelling tea house thanks to Sweet Jane

While we had planned on a picnic in the park, inclement weather meant a venue change. How lucky we were to be hosted by the lovely women of Polli. I had to contain myself, being surrounded by such a variety of  'seductive' jewellery. Everyone pitched in with  sweet treats to share - the mixed plate of 'leftovers' was a hit to take home too.

Steph and Lisa (make sure you check out her new look site for fabulous ideas, seriously!) both do a fantastic job of creating these meetups ensuring they work on so many levels: visual, social, satisfying + fun!
 As for the instagram part - it was interesting breaking into smaller discussion groups to hear other bloggers discuss how/why they used instagram and basically chat about why we all loved it!

While lots of people these days have many facets to their lives i did appreciate the opportunity to get out  from behind the screen and mingle in these circles.
