Clothes Swap Party!

I didn't take pictures of the actual goings on, but I did take some of the delicacies from the Pink Morning Tea!

A big thanks to all who came! It was such fun!

I'm such a copycat.

Ever since I read this by Handmadies, I have been feeling the urgent need (want, perhaps is more accurate) to get this:

her name is Rebecca and I fell in love with her ages ago while doing my random searches on Etsy. She is just a 4 * 6 print and only $6... The artist is in Sydney. What do you think?

(I'm reticent to put up the link in case someone steals it out from under my nose...)

I'm sure you are all aware of my - umm - need (desire, compulsion, addiction...) to shop, and the other week while browsing Made It I discovered....

These AWESOME superheroes (perfectly monogrammed with the Aphid's and Mealie Bug's initials) are now hiding in their lair (my wardrobe) ready for their grand entrance on Christmas Day. TullyKatAlley is just awesome to deal with and she is such a sweetie! Loved working with her!! She also has her own blog.

Check her out!

The recent past.

Apologies for vanishing for a few days. I generally am a narcissistic talker, but the past few days have gone as a bit of a blur.

The other day I came home to an email from a lady wanting to sell my Fluffy Butts in a boutique in London! How exciting is that!! She found me on Made It, and I've only been listed on there since Saturday afternoon.

Understandibly, I have been fairly chained to the sewing machine trying to get up a supply of goodies for her, as well as a few other places I'm looking into selling them, not to mention the upcoming Handmade Expo in November!

Good thing my shipment of the cutest Christmas fabric arrived today...

Be Excited!

My crafty (or is it manipulative?) fix!

I spent a LOVELY morning, just me and the Mealie Bug at the Handmade Markets. It was just heavenly being out and all girly like and not having to worry about anyone else but moi and the littlest critter from our brood. Of course I spent a smidge, but hey, it's helping our economy AND helping out other like minded ladies who are also into this crafty-ness business.

OH! And after making a few introductions to some selected peoples, and pointing out some enigma's to others, I ran into Swift Jan of ForFunAndFancy fame and received my delightful brooch that I ordered from her! Perfection!

Then reality hit and I came home to the shambles that is my house when it is run by the husband with 2 Aphids of varying ages. Still, I love them just the same ;) But do you know what I did?

Just a quick one...

Don't forget to enter the 1st Blogversary giveaway at Bubba Chenille! Of course, you won't win, because I'm trying my darndest to rig it in my favour! LOL Check out the prize - you'll see why ;)


More locking myself in the sewing room today and ignoring the fact that I have 3 critters. Yeah, I'll let you know how successful that turns out to be ;)

I just found this on MadeIt and, well I *really* like it!

Custom Cuteness Creations ♥

What have I been doing today...

Sneaky Peaky...

Some more creativity for you to peruse!

Have you ever seen..? And what an EXCITING GIVEAWAY!!!

Firstly, I want to refresh everyones memory that this Saturday (Oct 17th 8am - 2pm) is the Handmade Expo at the Ipswich Turf Club! It is such a great place to see all the gorgeousness that is handmade stuff and spend all your hard earned cash on well priced, well made, unique and non-commercialised stuff! I'm planning on doing a wee bit more Christmas shopping and I recommend that you do to!

It's a $2 entry for adults and kidlets are free. And make sure you bring the kidlets, because there is going to be a Guiness World Record attempt and over 1500 people are needed for Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes. I'm sure you remember it!

AND.. there is a giveaway to celebrate some more handmade milestones. Go visit: Handmadies
to find out all the excitement!

In other news...

Yesterday was a baaaad day. I wont go into details, suffice to say that Aphid #1 has no toys for a very long time. I was reeling (? is that the correct word / spelling?) and so I locked myself in my new abode after bed time last night.

Have you ever seen anything quite as cute as this?!?!?!?

It was all my own design! Love!

This afternoon I have spent a little while making up a pair of boys shorts. Aphid #2 in all his pernickity-ness has given them his nod of approval, so hopefully that is a good sign!

Oh, and I just found out today the reason my machine needle seemed to be *gah-dunking* every time it hits the fabric. Apparently they are only good for about 6 hours of sewing. Oups! It must have been very, very blunt! I only change it when I break it on a pin... How did I not know that? And how embarrassed should I be at admitting it???!

Now the *best friend* is sewing like new again!
