Woodhill Wonderland


I have a friend, Rita. She is pretty bloody awesome. So awesome in fact that she had a GREAT idea. A Garage Market - not just your normal garage sale, a Wonderland (in her garage). She and some of her friends will be selling heaps of goodies and I will be there aswell.

I have started creating new things and my creative juices have been flowing at a rapid speed. Its school holidays at the moment and my boys are keeping me very busy so far. I am not sure how I am going to go during the Christmas holidays, maybe a small holiday might to the trick.

If you live on the Southside of Brisbane, come check out Woodhill Wonderland, the Garage Market.

Here is what I have been working on this weekend and they aren't what you think they are.

Yes, they are owls, but what are they really? I can't wait to show you the finished product. I have been working on some Christmas buntings aswell. You know how much I love buntings.

I finally got myself to the flea markets today. I am so glad I went, I found some great finds. 4 Better Homes and Gardens magazines for $2 they are all Christmas editions. I love love love Christmas and this year Christmas is at our house - its going to be heaps of fun. I also got Monopoly for $4, I was pretty chuffed about that aswell.

Schools Out, Sewing In

September school holidays 2010 has begun.

I'm not looking forward to these holidays as we have to move house the week the kids go back to school, so the holidays will involve alot of packing *sigh*

This is what I have been up to so far. Creating aprons, finishing burp cloths and sewing pillows.

I had inspiration this week. I love it when you get inspired by things and people. I made these buntings for a friend of mine. They are moving from Brisbane to Townsville. I got inspiried by the new Julia Roberts movie movie, Eat Love Pray. These buntings will look lovely in their new house.

Just thought that I would share my favourite t-shirt with you. My dream is to go to New York. I think that I have secretly lived in NY in a past life. I watch all the movies and tv shows that are set in New York. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Gossip Girl, The City, Sex and The City, Seinfield. The list can go on and on.
I will get there one day, I truly believe it. Until then, I am very content and happy with my life here in Brisbane with my family, friends and all the crazy stuff in between.
Nothing happens unless first we dream.

A New Obsession

Do you ever have one of those weeks where all you want to do is sit back, chill and create? Well that was my plan for the 'week that was'. But for some reason I got nothing I wanted to do done. Kids being sick, work, husband duties, mother duties, house inspections and a small social life consumed my week.

I finally had time to create Happiness today. I was a tiny bit happy that today was rainy, so a day at home inside, was had. I made buntings, I love making buntings at the moment. I enjoy making different combinations with colours and the fabric, anything goes really. I am hoping to get REALLY, whoops, I mean - I plan to be EXTREMELY busy making and creating heaps of Kazza's Happiness this week. I want to do a few market stalls before the end of the year (its really not that far away (insert panic face here)

Here's to a happy and productive week ahead for everyone :)
