Backpacks & Cushions

The backpack is complete thanks to a wonderful and very, very easy tutorial over at Nikki’s
It’s for library day at kinder but we are using it everywhere.  
It makes me smile.  I love kid’s drawings, they make me happy.
He drew it and I made it, what great teamwork.  

I love it and so does he.


Something we also love is the cushion swap loving we received in the mail….AMAZING!!
Thank you Michelle and thank you Vic, you are just awesome.

I love it, especially those teeny tiny ants marching along!

How’s your creative day going, why don’t you let us have a peek.

My Creative Space…

It was international Women’s day the other day and I was lucky enough to enjoy a few morning gatherings and a wonderfully organised movie screening with lots of other women.
I enjoyed a few hours of being a woman, not just a mum, not just a partner, but a woman.
Today I am celebrating creativity around me.

The henna tattoo on my hand was a creation by a talented woman from India


the fabric covered canvas I made so I can store my beautiful brooches created by lots of other wonderfully creative and talented women


the lovely family portrait by the little guy framed and admired


the magic of liquid chalk for drawing on the window and practising our school words



and of course, the gorgeous girls in the background creating what they do best… a bit of a mess.

Hope you have had a day full of creativity and enjoyed being a woman ♥


I am not a complainer, I do get annoyed at certain things but mostly I am happy to be around to enjoy the little things, things that make me smile, things that I am grateful to have, people I am grateful to be around.
I haven’t always been like this, maybe it’s being around young, innocent, playful minds that inspires me to look at life with a smile.
Here’s a few of my grateful moments, 
I must, MUST start with tea

Hope you have a happy, smiley, sunshiney day full of grateful moments of your own.

Hugs ♥
