Project Life 2015

2014 was a bit of a muddle in terms of Project Life & what I was doing. I switched from weekly print-at-home to in-theory weelky print-at-Harvey Norman which mergeed into fortnightly or even monthly “oh crap I’m so far behind”. I also started the year with the Honey edition & all it’s co-ordinating bits, & ended the year mixing in […]

A non-handy girl’s guide to a DIY Pegboard

In the last week of the school holidays, four small people packed their bags, filled nanny’s little car with car seats & tiny bodies, and abandoned me to four days of hysterical sobbing & loneliness. Somehow, I managed to dig deep, wipe the tears from my eyes and make a list. A LONG list. Four whole days to myself! Where […]

Where I Stand {this week}

This week was HUGE – a brand new look & a brand new name! Thanks to everyone who has stopped by & left such wonderful feedback! I’m glad you are all liking it as much as me.   Things my barefoot wanderings around the interwebs led me to: A fun pie chart tutorial – I can’t wait to try this […]

on going barefoot {plus a free planning printable}

So. Why the change? While a rebrand wasn’t something I was actively looking for, I’d been gradually feeling that I was outgrowing my previous identity. Nothing definite, but just not quite right. But with nothing else really striking me (which, to be honest, I wasn’t exactly putting a great deal of thought into), I just allowed it to simmer along […]

Kissing Fish AKA The Aussie Aviatrix Quiltalong

I am so excited to finally be able to show you this quilt. I have shared the centre medallion previously, but have had the final photos under embargo until this week when the quiltalong wraps up.   {round of applause for the excellent quilt-holding-and-foot-modelling skills of Mr Barefoot} It is a quilt, quite literally, built on blood, sweat & tears. […]

busy bees

Before Christmas, Beetle & I spent one of our big-sibling-free mornings cruising the local op-shops – I had a project in mind, you see, something I’m sure would surprise, um, no one. I wasn’t having much luck finding some of the bits & pieces I was looking for, and just generally browsing, when I found some cute little glasses for […]

customised keyrings {commission}

A month or two before Christmas last year, I got a text. “Hello, my wonderful, lovely, crafty, clever friend…” (or words to that effect), it started, and I giggled as I knew what was coming. A little photo and some more sucking up, followed by a request – could I make two personalised keyrings, and how much? We-he-hell… a new […]

end of year teacher care package

Am I the only one who tends to compare how much I like a person with how much I like a fabric I will be sewing with for them? When Beetle’s baby quilt arrived, I was blown away and touched on many levels, not the least of which was my beautiful friends had sewn with one of my favourite fabric […]

tell me a story

A few months back, as a subscriber to the 2014 Once Upon A Time sampler, I got to take part in the survey for the theme of the 2015 sampler. There were a few cute options, but as soon as I saw literature, I knew exactly what I was voting for. And then when the 2015 sampler was revealed to […]
