My Little Luie Turn ONE!

My baby is no more.. I know have a 1 year old on my hands. We had a Party on Sunday and for a present I made him a little party outfit :)
I found this fabulous cotton drill (?) at a garage sale a few weeks back it was a sample piece but will be enough to make a few things.
Snap on bow tie for the birthday boy...

and matching pants, with some contrasting red stripe.

Isn't he just the cutest little party boy ever!

Party post to come soon :)

My Creative Space

Yesterday Ollie and I made Christmas decorations. Most of you would have seen them around. I have seen some gorgeous ones on various bogs and Pinterest. So anyway I thought I should give it a go. I have a second round of Christmas decoration swap with our baby coffee group, so thought I could make these, and get Ollie to have a go too.  I just used plain old Das, it was ok.. but I'm sure you could get better, softer and more pliable clay.

Have a lovely Thursday.

My Fabulous Fair Day & maybe the start of a business!

Eight hours on I am still buzzing at how my first shot at selling my own creations went... I went with no expectations and I am so proud to say it was a hit!
I went with about 33 items and sold about 20 (and counting)! Take a look at what it all looked like ;-)

And here's our little stall, like I had mentioned in my previous post I shared a stall with a extremely talented friend. My condition to share a stall with her was that she stick with girls clothes and I do the boys. And it worked really well. There was no competition between us and the collections actually complimented each other. We were also super lucky to be out on the verandah as the space inside was crazy busy with stalls and we had room to wander and hang our little clothes line :)

Chelsea's gorgeous little collection

love the lace style fabric!

So anyway it was a fabulous first experience for me and I will be back... actually I have already semi committed to the christmas art and craft fair in two weeks! YIKES better get sewing... again!
And who know this could just be the start of a wee business for me. Hurray! 
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
