this week

It’s been a busy week – charms out the door for the Bonnie & Camille Aussie Charm Swap, crafting for a little boy who I’m pretending isn’t having a birthday this week, catching up on Project Life, and getting some cute letterpress notecards listed in the Etsy shop. How’s your week been?

WIP Wednesday :: party time!

Last night, when the baby was in bed and the big children were at their grandparents, I parked myself on the loungeroom floor with my BigShot. As we watched The Block (and snarked only slightly), I cut out a pile of cardstock and got folding. Aren’t these little hamburger boxes adorable? There’s a bit more work to do before they […]

House Block Swap :: what I sent

Like many things I seem to get tangled up with lately, it was one of those things that seemed like a good idea at the time. Also like many thing I seem to get tangled up with lately, it was one of those things that I ended up using every last minute of my deadline. As in, in the mailbox […]

A few bits and pieces happening around here this week, my big WIP I’m focusing on at the minute is some getting some fun stuff ready for the Etsy shop.

the world’s fanciest sticker book

It’s as predictable as the sun coming up. Five minutes after we walk out of dance class, the tears start. The sticker that was on her hand just a moment ago has disappeared. Not a worry, thinks I, we’ll make her a sticker book. A bit of patterned paper or some fabric scraps, some book board and some heavy printer […]

The Aussie WIP Wednesday

On the work table today is a gorgeous table runner I am making for a friend, based on this tutorial from Blossom Heart Quilts. I am totally smitten with this fabric, and have a couple of projects for myself planned already. Last week, Skip shared her hexie travel project – complete with makeshift craft table – clever or clever? Have […]

my first mixed media class

Following on from a one-on-one mixed media lesson I did a while back, a couple of weeks back, I taught my very first mixed media class. Leading up to it, I was a mess of nerves and excitement, and now it’s done, it was so much fun, and I can’t wait for the next one in November!   Normally I […]
