my creative space...

I'm playing with some new fabrics today...I visited Kimono House yesterday and picked up these beauties.
I love the green one so much. I've only ever had scraps of it before...

We bought a new couch today. Our old one was great until Jack arrived. Without going into too much detail it didn't survive the early spewy months. This time we bought leather. I honestly think if a furniture sales person sells anything other than leather/vinyl to parents they should be shot. So I jumped straight on etsy and bought these lovely new cushions. I think it will go nicely with this one I bought a while ago.

sleep is for the weak

This makes my heart sing tonight...my poor munchkin has an ear infection on top of his 'non sleeping' phase.

Still no crafting happening around here. My next market isn't until August and I'm enjoying the break. I have been doing some shopping though
. Some new fabrics and a super cute owl brooch. Tomorrow if the boy is well enough I may even head over to this new market

busy, busy

So, I haven't been very up with blogging lately. Jack has been somewhat...shall we say challenging? He has stopped sleeping. No day sleep and waking BEFORE the birds. Like pitch black dark, stars still in the sky.

I have tried quiet time in his room but it usually results in 'trashing' as he just climbs out of his cot.
The big boy bed is on order.

He has stepped his climbing addiction up a notch. This week he escaped out the front door (with the help of his toy piano) and was off to the park when I caught him. So like most mother's I am repeating 'this too shall pass' and am hoping for the best. If not I figure he could fetch a good price on Ebay...I mean he's kinda cute, right??

my creative space...

Not much today. Actually not much at all lately. I'm having a bit of a break from the buttons while it's quiet. At the last MMM I picked up this felted sock for my ipod. When I got it home I thought it could do with some personalising so I sewed on a yo yo and used one of the lady buttons I picked up a while ago. I like it.

Happy Mother's Day!

A big Happy Mother's Day to all the mum's out there. I hope everyone is getting spoilt with good behaviour and lots of kisses and cuddles.
Hubby picked up on my (not so subtle) hints and bought me a beautiful brooch.
I wore it to the zoo this morning

last chance cube...

After 9 months I am finishing up at in.cube8r. It's been a wonderful experience and a great thing to be a part of. My poor cube has been very neglected of late...there just aren't enough hours in the day! I'll be there until Tuesday next week so if you've been meaning to pop in, then this is the time.

While I was there I added to my brooch collection with this cute one by Yasmin Ellis. I also have my eye on her owl necklace...

market day

Today's market was a success! The weather was perfect and my new earrings were the hit of the day. Looking forward to the next one in August.
