Our little break away...

We had a little break away to Sicily! A last minute decision, we had already booked the week off work but hadn't decided on what to do or where to go. After a few hours searching, we decided on Sicily! Here are a few pics from our trip! 


^The blue/turquoise sea! The water was sooo clear! Unlike the brown crappy water we have here! 


^ This was at Reserva di capo Gallo - a nature reserve. Beautiful place! 


^ We visited Monreale Cathedral. Amazing mosaics! Huge place! 


This was the view from our balcony. We stayed in the Bel 3 hotel in Palermo. Hotel was nice, clean, people were friendly. What more could you ask for! :)

Dresses!


I am making my nieces a 'Frozen' inspired dress each!

Its my first time using tulle material, but I am mega impressed with the outcome. These two dresses are yet to be finished, need to add some straps, more tulle (Am going to add white strips on the top), snowflakes, ribbon, then I am going to sparkle them using glitter.

Kelly & James's big day!

Some of you may know, I made the wedding stationary for Kelly and James's big day! 

My Silhouette Cameo was well up for the job :) Here are some pics from her magical day! 







It was an honour to do the stationary and to be a guest at the wedding. The day was beautiful, it was my first time at The Carriage Hall in Plumtree. And the rain held off too! A lovely day for a lovely couple! :)

Tidy craft room! :)

About time, so Alex will say! 

Are you a tidy or messy crafter? I unfortunately, much to Alex's annoyance, am a messy crafter! But being as I have had nothing to do this weekend, today I spent most of the day tidying. And here are the results:


^ Pride place, my Mum's sewing machine. I have vowed to myself that once my debts are paid up, I will be booking myself on a sewing machine course as although I know how to use one, I am not the greatest - I tried to make me some bunting, and yeh, it didn't go too well. Machine ran away with me and no straight lines lol Various bits and bobs, magazines, candles etc


My printer, button collection, Spectrum Noirs! 




Here is an upclose :) She guards my craft room! How cute is she though?!



This is one of my favourite sayings. Live, Laugh and Love. This was originally all white, and as my craft room walls are boring magnolia, I decided to paint and sand it! Happy with the results! 


I have a thing for jars. And candles. And pink. 


My desk and funky lamp! :) This was from Aldi a few months ago. So quirky! 


My silhouette (under cover! Which I actually made! Go me!)


Another jar. With pink Pot Pooey! And my fav quote. 

I thought I would take some pics whilst it was tidy! We are in the process (and have been for two+ years now!) of looking for our own place. When we move I can have my craft room how I want it, not boring magnolia walls and crappy brown curtains! :)
