Hi there all. We are still enjoying the school holidays here, yummy lazy days with sleep in's and no lunch box rush hour...ahhh... bliss. The down side to this is not much craftiness happening, so here is a quick little peek at some tags I made a few weeks back.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi there all. Sorry for the little break in transmission, we have kicked the school holidays here off with an early start and had a beautiful week in Far North Queensland. We visited lots of lovely spots and had a blast. You know that my posts are usually relatively short and sweet, so I will let the photos do the talking..

Port Douglas

The Daintree

Cape Tribulation

...and as well as all the touristy stuff, there was lots of this...

...and this...

Thanks for stopping by, have a lovely week:)

Small Things

Hi there, I am playing along with Moonmum today. It is so true... it is the small things that can mean a lot, my 'small things' list goes a little something like this:

* the toothless grin I keep getting at the moment from one of my poppets... I just can't get used to it and it makes me giggle each time

* a morning coffee

* a sausage mcmuffin through drive thru after school drop off (I know it's a dirty habit, but it's one I just can't kick)

* hubby noticing that I cleaned the fish tank without me having to say anything

* new followers on the blog

* a pair of king parrots sitting on the bird feeder

* 'angry bird' therapy... kind of sounds contrasting to the one previous...but you get the idea ;)

* my presently clean craft table... it will be shortlived but is a joyous moment nonetheless

What 'small things' are making you happy today? Pop on over to Moonmum's blog and leave your link in the comments.

Have lovely day:)

Thankyou to a New Friend

Hi there all. I want to send out a big thankyou today to Katia from Plushka's Craft for doing a little feature on SweetSimplicitee over at her gorgeous blog. Grab a cup of coffee, or tea if you fancy {I am a coffee girl} and pop on over to have a bit of an ogle at the beautiful crafty goodness that is Plushka's Craft.

I couldn't leave without a quick share of some cute patterned cards I made last week using this pretty paper from My Little Shoebox... these would make such cute thankyou's/invitations for a special little cherub, don't you think?

Have a lovely week, thanks for stopping by.

Welcome {baby}

Hi there. It has been a long time since I sat down and made a card 'just because', I am always trying to come up with new ideas for sets of cards for the shop, taking into account what sells and what doesn't, how customers seem to prefer sets of cards as this is the more cost effective way to purchase when you have to add postage in... etc. So, today, I just sat down at my craft table and enjoyed making a single card for no apparent reason whatsoever... 

... as you can see, my love affair with banners/pennants/bunting has not come to an end just yet;-)

Enjoy your day wherever it takes you, thanks for stopping by.

{Edited to add: I was a little chuffed... to say the least... yesterday, when a lovely fellow creative Brisvegian did a little shout out for Sweet Simplicitee over at her gorgeous blog Little Chrissy, thankyou very much Chris and I hope you love the birdy tags that are headed your way}
