I'm a forty-three year old mother of three grown up children, I'm obsessed with craft and mixed media, and am passionate about family and friends and very excited about, and loving blogging!!
Thank you for viewing my blog, I love to share my work, but it is my work, so please don't replicate anything you see here without my written permission. Thanks.
I dragged out my embroidery box last night, (which my uncle gave to my Mum for her 21st!!) in order to embroider these flowers onto my 'AAACHOOOO!!! Tissue box holder' made out of a pair of B's old jeans, I think I'm going to start a collection based around the 'doodle daisies' I designed for this...
And I found these beautiful treasures - aren't they divine?
It's Australia Day! And for the holiday, we're having a BBQ to do some fundraising for MSF and their Haiti campaign. The fridge is full, the BBQ is on (well, ready anyway!) and the friends will soon be on their way, have a great day everyone, might have some photos to post tonight!!
I had an interview on the BrisStyle blog http://brisstyle.blogspot.com/ yesterday, and I am so excited!!! It's my first-ever 'public showing' apart from this blog and people have said some really lovely things, so thanks to everyone, and a special, big TraceyD thanks to the fabulous gals at BrisStyle!!! <3 :D
I'm learning how to make fabric paper and have made this journal which is now for sale in my Etsy shop...you layer fabric and paper and tissue paper with a glue mixture, and paint and then sew (after it's dried of course!! :P) Am working on some 'Woodland' coasters this afternoon, in between cooking and tidying the space that I believe was once my house!!!! Have a great afternoon, everyone!!
After some very damp nights with our recycled cork coasters, I'm working on some denim ones that I hope will absorb more of the condensation - this time of year is so ...summer!!! I'm going to put some up in my Etsy shop in the next couple of days, but ones for home first!! What do you think?
