Dan got me this as a card a while back now...I find it hilarious, silly and going to get it framed and display it somewhere because it always makes me smile...

What do you think? Amusing? Did it make you smile, maybe even just a little? :-P

My apologies for the standard title...he he

Here are 3 progressive shots of our stairs, which are pretty much finished now...

Will be getting back into the house reno work in the next week or so, to get a few more things finished off.

Have had a hectic week, with my parents & nan staying with us - being absolutely awesome doing the housework and ferrying the oldest two to kinder & school for me - and it couldn't have worked out better in the 'help' area because I came down with Mastitis and a head cold/flu thing, and mixing that with an unsettled & windy baby in the early hours of the morning made for a half awake/unwell me but with their help, things still ran smoothly - so a BIG Thank You to you you lots xx

So hopefully, my blogging will be back on track this week. Have a couple of creative projects on the go, as well as some decorating to complete and share.

Till then, take care xx

Fresh Air

As a last outing together as a family (4 generations - isn't that fantastic?!) for this Melbourne trip for my mum, dad, nan, sister and nephew, we headed to Sherbrooke Forest and 'The Falls' walk.

It was so beautiful and fresh, as it had been raining in the morning, and I definitely think we looked liked tourists, with quite a lot of cameras between the 8 of the adults :-P. But I do love that this is practically at 'the back door' of where we live...just have to remember to appreciate it a little more often..

Here's a brief photo share (some photos have been played with in Photoshop :-P)

It Seems We Have Another One...

Looks like Levi is going to suck his thumb, just like his older brother cute when they are bubs.

Green Grass Vase - Funky!

How cool is this little vase? Danielle brought it back, from her trip to Denmark, as an anniversary pressie for Roh and I, and I just love it! It's little and cute, and looks as funky empty, as it does with flowers in it.

Love having small design touches like this throughout my home ...makes me happy :-)

She Likes To Swim

Alannah is currently doing swimming lessons through her school..and she loves it!

We (Roh and I) went and watched her yesterday, do her thing, and I snapped a couple of photos, while I was there :-P

Tiny Ankle Boots - Finished!

Remember this post here..

Well, while waiting to go into theatre last Wednesday (we had a 3 hour wait being last on the list), I got to finish them, and they are tiny! And very soon to feature in a photo shoot with my little cutie...hopefully they fit :-P

From Blue to New

One of our projects over the Easter weekend, was to re-paint our room. As of last night, it's nearly there, but not quite...a little more enamel paint to go.

Here's the pics so far....

Plasterboard patch ups from old doorway and old window...

Covering the white with blue, for a balanced base...with the kids help, of course :-P

First coat on the exposed beams... (originally they were mission brown, then we painted them blue, now white)...

End wall now it!

Just a few more touches to fix up maybe today...we'll see how the day pans out.

Have an important date at a local health facility in the late morning, so we may not get much more done :-P

Will be MIA for a few days, but will hopefully be back with an overwhelming amount of new family photos and an exciting introduction.

Take care xx

I finished Jude's pyjamas...

While Roh worked on our stairs...this is the first coat of the base stain...they should be finished tomorrow, so I'm told :-)

And I sewed these bunting flags together and ironed them flat, all ready to attach to the binding...

And I stitched this little pup to a singlet for Levi...

And Roh finished plastering the main wall in our bedroom...this will be where Levi's area will be set up. I think we are painting tomorrow..

And I also cooked up a batch of Monte Cream Biscuits...yum!

What did you get up to today?


New Carpet

Our rumpus room is now looking a whole lot more finished, and of course, cosier with the new carpet.

Today's house project has been the stairs...more on that later :-)

My Creative Space..

One crochet ankle boot down, one to go :-P. Pattern bought from here.

Deadline the end of next week our new little boy should be in the world enjoying lots of family cuddles.

Must add a big THANK YOU! to those of you who posted (and told me) hints to sewing with stretch fabric - I'm almost finished Jude's pj top and it appears to be looking better. Out of your hints I've : changed the needle; used an overlock stitch for edging; used a specialised stretch fabric stitch for joining; and I've slowed down. So again, thank you friends.

If you're up for some inspiring blog browsing, check out the list of crafters blogs and their creative spaces over here..
