My Creative Space…

Today is all about amusing the little people around here while I get some baking done for the Made n Thornbury winter market tomorrow.  
Looking forward to it and hope you can pop by for some handmade goodness and support the wonderful talents of many women. 
Also a BIG thank you to the amazing woman behind this fabulous market, Justine, who is leaving the neighbourhood house at the end of the week. You’ll definitely be missed Justine!



So today we are creatively baking, food colour painting, dressing up and of course thanks to a sweet gift from a super sweet lady they look super good whilst doing that!
Hope you are happily creating, I wonder what the beret-wearing Ms Kirsty is up to today.

Happy day ♥

  • Hi Cathie-
    Still here, reading and catching up with everything. Sigh… Looks like you have been one busy girl, luscious banana bread, the cupcakes, the buntings, the party, quilt, those crowns!!! Love them all! And you know I just need some of those sweet hearts, I am on the lookout!!! Yours are the best though!

    And I was planning on asking you if you would by chance, move your entire family to Minneapolis, Minnesota (home of the Mall of America!) so Libbie and I could adopt you into our family? We want another sister like you and both Lib and I adore you! Is it a possibility??? (HEHEHE… but just wishing!)
