Fairy Wings and Butterflies

I am totally enjoying all the new creations I have been coming up with. I am having so much fun I hate that there are not more hours in the day.

This one I have just completed was very time consuming but I am just loving the result. I used a 12"x12" chipboard printers tray this time. This one was alot more solid than the last one and I used The Girls Paperie - Paper Girl papers. Such great whimsy papers with yellows and pinks and a hint of blue and green. This one took me 2 days to complete as it was quite fiddly but it was a labour of love. I am thinking a christmas one would be great to keep and bring out each year to decorate the house.

A Gift for Chrissie's New Baby!!

I am a big fan of The Circle and adore Chrissie Swan. When I found out she was pregnant I really wanted to make something for her new baby. Five weeks ago she had a baby boy and I have finally got around to making this canvas and owl hanger for her. I was lucky enough to see a picture of her (above) in her house so I tried to match the colours with the wall stickers that she has. I was going to do an owl canvas anyway so I couldn't believe my luck when I saw the wall stickers were owls also.

I often watch The Circle while I am working in my office and she constantly cracks me up. What better gift to give than what I am doing when I am watching her.

I hope she likes it.

Once Upon A Springtime!

Oh my gosh!! How much fun am I having!! This is Project No 3. A Printers Tray from Twiddleybitz and I used paper from Graphic 45. Love this paper. Have had it a while and finally decided to use it. Sometimes I hold onto the paper for ages because I don't want to cut it up haha. Yep crazy paper addiction!!

Fabulous Friday!

I went into the city yesterday to meet my good friend Andrew for a catch up and lunch. We caught a tram to Fitzroy and checked out some great paper shops and cute little gift shops then had a yummy lunch. It was a beautiful sunny day, a great relaxing catch up and awesome conversation. I had such a good time. Andrew also surprised me with a belated birthday present and I wanted to share this with you all. He knows I have a massive love of owls.

Thanks for a great day Andrew!!

Our New Bed!!

So our new bed arrived last month. I love this bed. How cool is the bookcase. I am having fun filling it up with lots of goodies. This is where my Birdcage and Filigree Stand will now live. I have also made a little canvas set a few months back that also now lives on here. A big special thank you also to my awesome friend Jessie of Art Candy who painted the canvas above the bed to match my Doona cover and also the print in the white frame that has also snuck it's way onto here also.

I am also loving this Doona cover by Pip Studio. All of her stuff is amazing and I think it is my all time favourite Doona cover ever. Would love to find some more things by this designer. Very hard to get hold of though.

Project No: 2

This was a tricky one but came up really well I think. This is the twiddleybitz Birdcage with Filigree Stand. I have done this one in colours to match our new Doona Cover and to go on out new bedhead. Pictures to follow in my next post.
