Bunting Fever

I made this for a crazy NRL footy supporter. She's clearly a Queenslander fan. Hope she likes it. My husband J and my boys were pretty happy with it aswell.

I like doing buntings. Their simple, can heaps of fun and your imagination can go wild on the designs and the letters you want to put on them.

I believe I have 'Bunting Fever'.

Made the trip

If you live in Brisbane and is anything like me and LOVE to make, create and imagine. Then it is well worth the trip to

Reverse Garbage is a not-for-profit workers' co-operative that collects high quality industrial discards, diverting them from landfill to sell them at low cost to the general public.

The only bad thing I did was not bring my car, I caught the train. So had to buy things that could fit into my green bag. I bought some carpet squares for 50cents each and some whiteboard felt (for now)

I had a lovely day with a very dear friend of mine re discovering West End and discovering the West End Markets. If your after fruit and veggies, vegetarian foods, and some retro/vintage clothing, then West End is for you. I also checked out and spotted some lovely handmade items from my favourite blogs! Nook is totally worth a look aswell. Oh and finally when your hungry from walking around and exploring what West End has to offer, have lunch at Urge Burger..Yum yum yum!!

I am currently working on buntings. I made a NSW bunting for a friend of mine and her mum wants a Queenslander one. Its looking good. Although I am a little bias, I am a Queenslander after all. I am planning to have it done by the end of tomorrow. Fingers crossed!

Loves a Bargain (and gift)

Look what I got at the markets on Sunday. I love the craft book. I am going to put the pillow cases to good use. My favourite market bargain is the fabric. I am thinking a baby blanket with soft fleece on the back perhaps.

Oh and this. It was a birthday present from my brother. I can't wait to get started on some projects. I've heard Amy Butler is awesome.

Hugs and Kisses

This is my big (Awesome) brother, Steven. He lives in the ACT but comes up to visit about twice a year. I love him to bits. I have a sneaky suspicion that the boys love him more because to save on postage, he buys the boys birthday presents when he visits. So to them, its Christmas when Uncle Steve comes to town :)

Something else that is awsome is what Kellie custom made for my sister's 21st birthday present. Nicole loves snails ALOT so this was a great surpise.
