Book Week Characters



This week was book week. We had a few tears about costumes (the issue of wishing to just go and buy one off the shelf). I would rather encourage creativity, and think of how I can encourage my kids to think outside the box, and use creativity to think up something more original. Both of the kids were happy with the outcome. It took some time, but it was fun working on something together...

Punch art

I was most impressed by this gorgeous card designed by the lovely Tania-I love that flower. I have since made the same flower (in a different colour) for a little brooch, but using the glue gun instead. I loooove cute things that are quick and easy!


Hi everyone, well it has been a long time since I've had a moment to create anything crafty, or make cards. But I had a lovely weekend with some creative friends, who inspired and challenged me. My brain is feeling a wee bit more relieved, as it has had a creative outlet....

Below is a punch art fairy that I created using an already-existing punch art dress design-I just added wings...

Visit to Townsville

We headed to Townsville for a week during the school holidays to see what my brother, Samuel, was up to-and to make sure he wasn't getting into mischief after leaving home for the first time. To be sure, he is getting on just fine, and we enjoyed poking around Townsville and its' many beautiful water parks/features. It just makes coming home to the cold that much harder to bear. We went from a lovely 25* to -8* overnight-a bit rude really... counting down the days until winter leaves....

The man we came to see: The Famous Uncle Sam... being climbed on, and not looking too impressed :)

Cooling off at the Strand-not that it really was THAT hot....
