♥ these prints...

Hi there blog friends. I have a few new mini sets to share today using some of my most favourite Amy Butler patterned papers. I had forgotten about these papers tucked away in my stash, until Friday night at the markets when some lovely customers commented on some cards I had for sale with some AB fabric scraps, that I had made quite a while ago...

{Edited to add: I have just uploaded all these new treats to my Etsy store if you are keen for a closer look :) }
... it got me all excited again about my Amy Butler obsession that I had a year or so ago, that saw me making AB inspired...


...camera straps...

... fabric cards...

...and even kids clothing.

So, as you see, it is well time I got back into my ''Amy Butler love'' phase.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon.

Market Wrap

Hi there blog friends. The BrisStyle girls hosted yet another fabulous event last Friday night for the BrisStyle Twilight Markets and I had an absolute blast. I am always amazed at the organisational skills of the BrisStyle girls. It was a beautiful night, and not too chilly when snuggled under the marquees with some lovely new crafty friends.

I have to admit that the highlight of my night was when a lovely pair of ladies appeared at my stall, mentioning that one of them had discovered my blog recently and popped along to check out my wares... thankyou... you made my night... I felt like a star for a wee moment ♥ . I, once again, forgot to take any photos... I was a little busy most of the night which was a real treat... it started early, before the markets had even kicked off, when a lovely fellow, who was on his way to an engagement do, saw me setting up and remembered he needed a card... it was nice to be able to save the day;-)

Anyways, a night amongst other creative folk has done wonders for my craft mojo and I have been a busy little bee since creating some new designs for my online stores, which I hope to upload this week. Here's a little peek for now...

I also wanted to share some photos of what my cherubs have been busy doing on the floor beside me while I have been busy creating...

a rainbow with clouds

...who needs elaborate toys when you have a bucket full of buttons?

Enjoy what is left of the weekend, thanks for stopping by ♥

{Twinkling} Twilighter's..

... I am not talking the Edward kind... sigh... rather the BrisStyle Twilight Markets of course. I will be showcasing my wares this Friday night, 27th May, at King George Square from 5 to 9pm.

I have been busy this week putting the finishing touches on my goodies in preparation of what is sure to be a lovely night.

Hope to see you there.. I will be hiding under my beanie and scarf as I do suffer from true Queensland climate control and seem to feel the cold terribly!

On another note, I was excited to find out earlier in the week that Sweet Simplicitee's Girly Girl Mini Cards were featured on the Seller Picks Page over at MadeIt! Thankyou!

Thanks for stopping by, have a delightful weekend, wherever it takes you ♥

Winner, Winner... {Chicken Dinner}...

Hi there Blog Friends. Big apologies for being so late with my giveaway winner. I have had a bit of a dental dimemma for myself causing a few dramas and a hefty helping of pain over the last few days, followed by a little one with a tummy bug overnight, a couple of hours sleep... and two little ones at home today {one sick, one perfect... but unable to get to school in case the other chooky was sick in the car;-) }

Anyways... here it is finally...

Congratulations Gail. L! I will send you off an email shortly. Thankyou to the lovelies who left comments.

Have a lovely day wherever it takes you... I am off to have a little cat nap with my cherubs after a big night {funny how 'big night' now means something so different to what it did 10 years ago}.

Mini's... Vintage Style

Hi there blog friends. Firstly, a big thankyou to all the lovelies who have left comments, and started following SweetSimplicitee's Facebook page, you have made my day.

I have some new designs destined for my Etsy and MadeIt stores, and the upcoming BrisStyle Twilight Markets in May. I only have a very small sample of my stock in my online stores, with about 80 items listed. In actual fact, I have a box on wheels that contains about 600 cards (all packaged and ready to go), about 20 packs of my mini card sets (all packaged up), about 30 packs of gift tags (all packaged up), and lots more... so be sure to pop along to King George Square on Friday 27th May from 5 to 9pm if you are nearby... it will be a beautiful night.

I made some Cream sets too...

One perfect day...

Hi there all. I have been debating of late what this blog is really all about. It started off dedicated to my crafty creations, but some family stuff has popped up along the journey... obviously... I don't sit chained to my craft table ALL the time. My dilemma at the moment is whether it becomes simply a craft blog... or remains a bit of both... mostly my paper and fabric goodies, with a little sprinkling of life along the way.

I have decided today to share some personal piccies, maybe for the last time, just not sure yet, of a day of sheer perfection we had over the Easter Break... no crafty stuff... just holiday bliss.

Perfect little set of winding stairs ...

... check.

Paradise found...




And a rare moment when Dear Hubby wrestled my beloved Canon out of my hands...

To help me out, I'd love to know what you come here to see, just the crafty stuff, or is there a little part of you that likes to see what else may be happening behind the scenes with my little brood? Leave a comment on this post and win $10 worth of goodies, plus free postage, from my Etsy shop. I will draw a winner next Thursday 12th May.

Taking the Plunge...

Hi there Blog Friends. I have decided to try my hand at a little online networking.

Facebook... here I come...I'd be tickled pink if you decided to "like" me... I feel like I'm back in first grade all over again ;-)

I'll be back blogging soon, thanks for hanging in there:)
