Well school is ending here in Australia, for another year. The grade 12 "kids" finished up a few weeks ago, the grade 11's and 10's finished yesterday and I think most of the other grades finish this week and next week. This year has gone so fast, says everyone over 35. It certainly has. I… Continue reading Bird House Party Favours
Spent a fair bit of time on this and I love it. The carriages are little bird houses tied with red ribbon. Just posted it on my facebook page, I just wish that I could have taken some outside shots of this but mother nature had some other ideas. We have just had a… Continue reading Ferris Wheel Fun
Well, I took the plunge a few hours ago and finally used the OHP transparencies I had bought last week. I was terrified that the transparencies would ruin my laser printer...my new laser printer at that too. So I hummed and harred (is that really a word?) for about an hour, loaded the feed with… Continue reading Using My Silhouette To Cut Transparencies

Just a few little goodies I've been working on during the week! Sold a few of each...well apart from the red heart, which I have done anything with yet, but it is just beautiful and I love it.

Sometimes I think there are just too many things in the world to do. I look at Pinterest and pin a billion things to the craft board, each one I am certain I will make today, oh and then something else, and then more. Curse you Pinterest! No I didn't mean that, sorry Pinterest I… Continue reading It’s Now 3.30am I Should Be Asleep!

Remember the days of the glass milk bottles? Clearly this week I have a thing for glass milk bottles...see yesterday's post.

Just recently a local company has… Continue reading No Milk In These Milk Bottles

Something that has really annoyed me for the last 20 years or so is that whenever I walk into my room I can see under my bed. And of course I store things like bags of clothes, photo albums, documents etc etc under my bed. But I just had enough of looking at that shit… Continue reading DIY Bed Skirt.
The above picture is actually from a McCalls pattern. I saw this picture on Pinterest and had a good look at it, sorted it out in my cluttered brain and then proceeded to make one pet bed complete with a top blanket...and I did it in about 15 mins for about $8. I just know… Continue reading DIY Pet Bed…Cheap and Easy.
