I bought a clover yo yo maker before Christmas. I made my first one today. The fabric was a bit too thick and the thread I used a bit too pink but it worked. I'm not much of a sewer and it was easy peasy to use. I've made a few more tonight...I'm undecided about the bigger ones. Hubby said they looked like something his nan would make...hmmm. I'll have to post some pics.

eye spy....the christmas aftermath

Oh my gosh....we need a whole room to dedicate to Jack's Christmas loot. He was thoroughly spoilt. Mostly by his grandparents. Even though it was a lovely day(s) I'm glad it's over now for another year. Jack didn't sleep well from all the excitement and then this morning I think he expected their to be presents under
the tree again..yes we have seen a new level of tantrums!

And it was me who bought the drum kit....what was I thinking???
I don't mind a bit of noise as long as he's happy and that he is

Our lounge room looks like Thomas the Tank threw up in there

The magna doodle was a HUGE hit !!! Thanks Nana!

eye-spy sunday

I'm a day early. This weeks theme was chosen by Miss Hoppo Bumpo. Eye Spy some BLING. Well, sort of. My bling isn't very elaborate but I love them and they mean the world. My engagement ring and my wedding band. Head over here to check out some more bling

Sadly I have closed down my Etsy shop (damn you aussie dollar!)....but don't be too sad, you can still buy my Chiyogami Jewellery from the fabulous Georgie Love. Stay tuned for new stockists in 2009!

we're going to the zoo...

Jack and I had our regular trip to the zoo this morning. Ive finally felt well enough to chase him around again. Perfect day for it....I think Melbourne's recent bad weather has scared everyone off. We were lucky enough to see one of the keepers feeding bong su (the male elephant)
Jack was even allowed to throw him some food.

Necklaces and Stuff

I've been a very neglectful blogger of late....I have so many posts to catch up on. Apologies to all my regulars :-) I'm still sick. Third lot of tonsilitis now. It's so sucky.I have been covering buttons like a crazy woman (or just like normal) These necklaces are made from this fabric. You can see them in person at my cube tomorrow afternoon.

I joined up a few months ago to be part of a Melbourne Etsy Christmas swap...well my lovely package arrived yesterday! It is too cute for words! I recieved a spiral notebook, 2 magnets and a bookmark. I am totally in love with the magnets.Thank you Sarah! To see more of Sarah's stuff check out her website here. Perfect for Christmas!

It's begining to look a lot like Christmas....

Were fully into the Christmas spirit here. This year should be extra special as Jack's just that little bit older. I can't wait until Christmas eve to put his toys together and wrap all the presents. The Christmas Tree has stayed upright and (mostly) intact for a week now only because I've been telling Jack it's hot....hehehe! bad mummy!

cheeky chops

You know your a mum when you catch yourself saying...."it's almost dinner time, you'll ruin your appetite" and you know you have a cheeky little boy when he climbs up and helps himself to some biscuits after you have said the above.

new fabrics

I recieved some yummy mail today....4 new fabrics! You can buy some from here. I wanted lots more but the aussie dollar is so sucky at the moment I had to restrain myself. I'm not feeling very crafty though....the tonsillitis has returned as well as a head cold...BLAH!!!
