Eye Spy....


Cindy has stepped up and created eye spy to give us all something to post about on a Sunday night. Today's theme is eye spy.....what I want for Christmas
I already have my chrissie present. Tickets to see Kings Of Leon in March next year! I spent 2 hours on the net and finally scored some. I can't wait!
Great theme Cindy...I can't wait to have a sticky at what everyone else wants

Design Market

I went to the design market this morning (along with the rest of Melbourne it seems) It was packed but this time I didn't have a husband and a baby in tow. Instead I met up with a lovely friend. There was so many wonderful things (drools) and I'm amazed at how clever some people are. Did anyone else fall in love with the teacup lights?? I couldn't leave empty handed......

Tree brooch from Nest

and some cute badges (I can't remember which stall it was)

on my fridge....

On my desk has been wrapped up so Amy has started on my fridge. The front has photo's....
mostly Jack of course


Jack's most recent creation

Lurking to the side is where it gets messy....bills, old scratchies, dodgy magnets,
postcards from a year ago. You get the idea.

to market, to market



I had a fabulous day at market 3031. It was bucketing down with rain, windy and freezing cold BUT there was a steady stream of people all day. I brought my book with me but never took it out once - I was too busy! Next time I will need an extra pair of hands. It was great to get home and see what sold well (and not so well) I also put some faces to names :-)

On My Desk....

I forgot to take a photo of my desk today (bad blogger)....it was a shambles anyway. I'm a bit stressed about the market. I haven't done a market for about 3 years..so out of practice. I never know what to take either. I'm sure it will be fine...fingers crossed for nice weather

Last night Jack thought he was pretty 'cool' dancing around in hubby's sunglasses while drinking his bottle

This Is....my favorite thing from nature


This weeks theme was easy peasy. Plants are my favorite thing from nature. Before I became a mum I was a horticulturalist...I love plants, seriously. I could rabbit on about them all day long. Botanical names, re-potting, fertilizing, pest and diseases...love it all!
Thanks to cloth and fodder for a great theme. Pop on over to three buttons for more this is

dr jack

Well the tonsillitis is all cleared up BUT I've had an allergic reaction to the penicillin....weird as I've taken it many times before. My hands and feet are covered in hives. Not good for crafting at all :-(

Here's Jack trying to take his temperature with one of my craft punches :-)

Only 7 weeks to go peeps!

A week of Happiness

Today drugs are making me happy...specifically penicillin. I have tonsillitis and it is awful. I feel like I'm swallowing razor blades. Jack has enjoyed my illness as dada has been home and is somewhat 'softer' than mummy....which basically translates to running around the house wild
I have nothing on my desk today apart from the above mentioned drugs and some ice cream. I can't wait to feel better because this fabric arrived yesterday.

have time to grab the chalk off your toddler
