There are still a few shopping days left till Christmas, so relax and take a little wander around the wendy june online shop, you may find just the thing!
I now can receive either paypal transactions or credit card, I know, totally handy.
Here are a couple of my favourites that will be being wrapped up and given to my loved ones this year!
If you happen to live in Australia you have until the 17th of December to make a decision, after then I not sure if the post person will be able to deliver your parcel for actual Christmas day. Happy shopping, and better still Happy Christmas!!
My last market for the year is the Maribyrnong Makers Market, I love this market as I get to meet and talk to all of my lovely customers! Please feel free to pop down and say hi, shop and you never know I may even do some market specials!
Feeling really lucky to be a part of this event. Not only is the event supporting people who need support (Asylum Seekers Resource Centre) it is also promoting our home grown local talent! Yup, win win.
Please come on down for the launch on Thursday Evening (November 28) or if you cannot make it then it will be open till November 30.

Oh yes my friends, it is coming up to that time of year... where one gets crazy-eyed getting thrown from one thing to the next. CHRISTMAS! One has to be wary of crazy drivers and the shopping malls. Unless of course you skip that nonsense, which is what I will be doing.
The deal? Shopping local and shopping online. Now if you want to hold my goodies in your actual hands the next place you will find me is the Maribyrnong Makers Market! In the Park not the hall!
Great things about this market? It is friendly and a happy place with lovely goodies spread through out- but not in a large big market exhausting way! Also it is community run. Why is this awesome and important? Because more money will actually hit the makers pockets, your money will be supporting actual makers, and up and coming designers that are Melbourne based.
The icing on the cake? There is a voucher! Quick go win it here
If you cannot come along because you are too far away, or for some other really good reason... you can go here and buy more wendy june than is good for you.
It seems like such a long time since I posted anything... I am sorry.
I have been so busy with shop orders.
I have also been sneaking new stuff in the kiln too, check out these darling new cups. Each cloud is different, as they are all free form hand painted. I have really enjoyed making them. The shape is perfect to hold in the hand, they are wonky and organic feeling and just lovely. Designed primarily for kids in mind they are the perfect heirloom gift. I found it pretty hard to find anything different or interesting for my own so I came up with these.
Of course they are good for grown ups too ;) Not great for hot things, but really good for summer drinks of ice tea and milk with your cookies.
You can buy them here!
One of my favourite people gave me this really ace sourdough recipe, I bake this nearly weekly and so far it has not failed me. Now I give it to you... go forth and bake my lovelies. Bake and stuff yourselves silly with bread, butter and maybe even some jam!!
No Knead Sourdough Bread
1.000g Bakers Flour
0.700g cold water
Mix until comes together, doesn't need to be smooth.
Rest 1/2 hour, cover with plastic wrap.
Add 0.020g salt (preferably sea salt) and 0.050g water.
Mix together until smooth (2mins), will be quite wet. Cover with plastic wrap.
Turn after approx 1/2 hour (you can do this several times or leave if you prefer).
Retard overnight in fridge, with plastic wrap (also works well left out of the fridge)
Divide dough into 2 pce and shape on bench.
Bring to room temp before baking.
Bake approx 40mins at 210deg.
Tips and Tricks:
1. Oil your tin and flour it so the bread does not stick to the tin, I usually use a vegetable oil but not olive oil as I find the flavour a bit strong.
2. Note that flours vary depending on brand and where you are in the world you may need to adjust the water content try 0.600g and see how it is and add more if needed.
3. Throw in a handful of ice into the bottom of the oven when you put your bread in. This will create a lovely crust on your loaf.
This is how it looks after the first mix.
This is how it looks after you have risen it, by going to bed and sleeping. Note all the lovely bubbles?
