Things will be quiet around here for a couple of days......
We are leaving on a jet plane early in the morning to the warmer climate in North Queensland.
Will be back on Monday hopefully with some photos to share.
Have a great weekend!
Whilst checking out the Paper Crave blog last night one came across photos of the Wiley Valentine booth.
Now I am sure that the National Stationery Show is actually all about the Stationery but...... how cute is the bird cage wall hanging that Wylie Valentine have popped all their cute little bits and pieces on. I NEED one of these little treasures....NOW!
Check out the Wylie Valentine blog here, so much yummy stuff!
Who else would I call but the fabulous Kristina from
Just a few little changes to titles, sidebar titles and the frame for the photo of me and my little guy!
Thanks so much Kristina! Always a pleasure to deal with you xx
Let me know what you think.....

So I see sister today and give her the parcel. She opened it up to find a gorgeous little parcel wrapped in brown tissue with a black ribbon and gorgeous card with a chipboard key attached, almost too cute to open! She opened it up and inside was the most gorgeous little zippered clutch. So well made, the attention to detail was amazing.
So now I have decided that I have to have one - or maybe two! Only problem is, I can't decide which one I want.....
Here are the ones I have narrowed it down to...
Option A - Upcycled Khaki Bird Pouch
Option B - Upcycled Denim Bird Pouch
Option C - Upcycled Red Seaoats Clutch
Option D - Upcycled Green Seaoats Clutch
So I am sure after seeing the above that you all know the dilemma I am.
Which one would you choose??

However, this morning I open up Etsy and find two totally gorgeous items on the front page, so I guess technically they are not my finds but thanks to simpleroots, my favourites list has now grown.
Just between you and I there are a few good Birthday Hints amongst this lot.....
Gorgeous Bags by Crazy Boy....
Cute In Touch Clutches by downstairsDesigns...
I love this fabric......
Finally, these Hats are the cutest things I have ever seen......
This one is my absolute FAVE!!!
Finally some good weather to take my little friend to the park!

What a lovely day we have had today, just what the doctor ordered! Lunch with some fab company and a lazy afternoon on the couch!
I have updated the Made It and Etsy Stores tonight...
Some cute new buttons, although a couple of the mixes sold almost as quickly as I listed them!!! I will hopefully pick and mix some more and have them in the Etsy Store in the next couple of days.
Not to mention the new crochet embellishments in some gorgeous new colours....
And these gorgeous new crochet goodies in two new colours....
Off to pack some orders, then off to bed!
Hope you have had a great weekend xx

So last night was the lesson with Wreaths. A nice change on a traditional bouquet or arrangement of flowers. I like working with the oasis, much more forgiving than straussing a bouquet!
Here is what I came home with.....
Found these little Jonquils whilst at the shops this morning, so cute..
Don't forget you only have until Midnight AEST tonight, Thursday 20 May 2010 to enter my Giveaway, details of which can be found here. I am overwhelmed by the response so far.

I have been thinking about these little Paper Lovelies for a while now but just have not had the time to sit and make them work, but today was the day!! I am so excited not only could I not wait to share them with you here but I have also listed them in my Etsy and Made It Stores ahead of all the other items I have to list!
Here's a sneaky peak....
Let's hope the other ideas filed in my head turn out just as good!

Have been busy posting off orders to some customers....

Was excited to receive some new supplies in the mail today!
Was super excited to receive an enquiry that could lead to me being very busy!

Definetely not fabulous, think I will be dismantling and rearranging this one today!
Have a great day!
Well Nate and I took at trip to Tesselaar's, the flower wholesaler in Coorparoo. Oh my goodness, I was in flower heaven! I have never, ever seen so much variety, so many amazing flowers and beautiful foliage, all in one place!
Anyway, back to the story, I decided that I was going to make a couple more of the cubed arrangements, they were just so cute and I really enjoyed making them. So I left the wholesaler with a truckload of flowers and over the next couple of days this is what I came up with...
The green chrysanthemums are just divine! I love them!
Looking forward to class tonight. A presentation bouquet is the task. Check back tomorrow for the pics!
