Cupcakes & School Holidays

School holidays have begun, I think I am looking forward to it. Mr Happiness looks like he will be finally working (after being unemployed for almost 2 months) in the second week of the holidays. It works out well because I only work 2 and a half a day and I'm home by 9am most mornings. Given Mr H will be at work and vacation care hardly seems worth the money. My awesome boss is good enough to let me take the boys to work with me. Mind you they will be watching Foxtel, colouring in and eating toast and Weetbix every morning. To me, that sounds like great fun. I do have lots of play dates and all the 'usual' school holidays fun things planned to keep as all busy.

Speaking of busy, I have been making cupcakes and more cupcakes. Why not I say?
I have also been making these. Larger fabric rolls. I finally sorted my diary and set aside some dates for some local markets I want to do before Christmas. I also have some great friends that love what I do and want me to do some custom orders for them. Thank goodness for friends :)

Oh and I won these awesome pencils from Pink Lizzy Sews/ MissIsa. I love them.

Always in Our Thoughts, Forever in our hearts

This is my Aunty Irene.

Aunty Irene sadly passed last week.

God took you in his loving arms;

He saw you needed rest;

His garden must be beautiful;

For he only takes the best.

Happiness for the hair

This is what my Saturday clips. I am finally getting my act together and starting to think of new and exciting things I can create and make. I am also thinking dates as to where my next markets will be. I miss doing the markets, but as we all know its hard work, but totally worth it in the end.

With my hair clips finished (for the moment) I am now moving onto measuring and cutting out fabric for my fabric rolls. I can't wait to use up some of my fabric I have had in a box for a couple of months. Being the multi task lady that I am, I shall be measuring and cutting while watching the mighty Brisbane Broncos will against South Sydney Bunnies. Aren't I clever?

Look what I made! It's another tea pot cosy. I made it for my sister, Nicole. Nicole loves snails. I have no idea why and how she became to love these slimy insects, but snails make her happy and if she wants me to make a tea pot cosy with snails all over it, I shall.

Nicole's reaction to it made me laugh..I think she loves it!

Next? A snail wall hanging..can't wait to get started!

Sunday = Awesome

Today is Sunday. In our family, Sunday's mean football, football, football. My morning was full of footy, but I did get time to go to the markets for an hr or so. I am so happy that Caleb's team played away from home or I wouldn't have gotten these lovely fabric's. My favourite is the one on the bottom. As you may know, I am somewhat of a 'fabric collector'. I love fabric, this week I am determined to make, create and sew lots of things. I have a few ideas already floating around in my head.

I managed to make this this afternoon, I am little disappointed with the denim fabric I used it caught alot onto the other fabric. I am thinking these can be great for kids aswell. I know my eldest, is always losing his pencils and crayons so one of these might be perfect. Lucky I have heaps of fabric to use, so adults and kids fabric rolls will be great to make.

If you have any ideas as to what I can make, create and sew, I would love your suggestions.

Proud Mum Alert

Do you remember having sports day at school? I didn't mind sports day in primary school, until I hit puberty, then I hated it (and the swimming carnival's aswell) For me, sports day in high school was an excuse to stay at home. I am not very co- ordinated at playing sports, that and the fact that I have boobs, they sorta make some sports difficult. Know what I'm saying?

My boys had their sports day yesterday. Ethan loves sports, any sort of sport he loves it. He's one of those kids that will stay in the back yard all day and just kick a ball over and over and shot hoops until he gets 20 dunks in a row. Caleb, he loves sports aswell, but unfortunately, he has my lack of co-ordination when it comes to sports, although he is loves playing footy. Caleb does better in the classroom and likes staying inside colouring, playing or watching a movie.

Anyway, Ethan got an Age Champion (6 yrs) medal. I wasn't sure who was more excited me or him. I was at the presentation and they called his name and I turned into a crazy mum, yelling and cheering, he was just sitting there, because he wasn't sure if it was him or not. He couldn't wipe that smile off his face for the rest of the assembly and the rest of the day no doubt. Now all I have to do is get him to love reading as much as he loves sports and we have a winner!!
