Time…I need more of you

I had all good intentions to share something weekly but it seems winter got in the way.  In between colds, catch ups, birthdays and lots of orders (which is very exciting), I have neglected my website.

So here’s to winter, it was fun but I’m definately looking forward to catching up with spring & summer!

A bit of what I’ve been up to-

  • Sewing up a storm, loving all the orders coming in and hope to have a few new goodies up and available soon

  • baking slices, muffins, cakes.  My favourite would have to be the cookie dough brownie

  • catching up with some good old blog reading.  Loving Bird with a Chip at the moment
  • and of course playing lots with my Oscar monkey

Until next time…

Worth the wait

I am so excited about this late birthday pressie my sister gave me on the weekend.  I have been looking into some of Nicole Mallalieu’s sewing classes and my sister had no idea.  Can’t wait to make some of her projects the hard part is choosing which one to do first….

Hands up if you have an iPhone

The iPhone! Everybody seems to have one these days except for me.  I’ve been thinking about upgrading to one when my contract is up at the end of the month but was a little worried how it would survive in my handbag.  There is not much you won’t find in my handbag, my theory is you just don’t know what you’ll need when out & about.
While I was having coffee with a friend the other day and I noticed her iPhone was tucked away in a little pouch.  I’ve been toying around with different purse designs and thought this might just keep my phone safe within the handbag jungle.
When I got home I decided to play around on my sewing machine.  I found some gorgeous little daisy fabric with a chocolate background and matched it with a goldy yellow for the lining.  I had to do a bit of guess work on size but was pretty happy with the result.  Now I just needed to make sure that the phone would fit.  When my sister popped over the next day I asked if I could borrow hers to test it out.  It fit!  She really liked it too and asked me to make her one.  Back to the sewing machine.
Can’t wait to get my iPhone now.

Well what a year it has been.  Many a paper creation was made.
This year is going to be an exciting one with a few new designs as well as some new products.  I have a few paper creations up my sleeve and I’ve been playing with some ideas on my new sewing machine…paper & fabrics, so many possibilities.

I look forward to sharing 2011 with you all.
