*gasp!* Amy Butler now does wallpaper!!!

Oh my!! I'm sooo excited! Amy Butler has brought out wallpaper!!!

I've been wanting to do a little freshen up of both my lounge room and my bedroom and have been looking around for some wallpaper to go on 2 walls for ages. I haven't found anything that I've liked, but now I have!

My bedroom makeover is going to feature blue I think. I want to make a quilt for our bed, pop a chandlier up and put wallpaper on one wall.

In the lounge room, we have a small wall behind our tv that is currently painted burgundy. We are ready for a change and I'd love to just have one wallpapered wall in our living area.

Now... which ones to pick????

Sunday Citar

Now that it's the last month of winter, I am getting excited about spring coming very soon! Yay!! I LOVE the sunshine and warmth and am ready for the cold weather to end. I love watching the flowers starting to bloom and hanging out with my boys outside.

My hubby took this lovely pic of a beautiful flower and now I'm really ready for spring!

Earth laughs in flowers. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us. ~Iris Murdoch

If you've never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom. ~Terri Guillemets

My Creative Space

This week I was lucky enough to have one WHOLE day to myself. Yes. A whole day. Wow! I  had to decide between sleeping or sewing... and what do you think I chose? I'll give you a hint... my eyes were not closed!

I put on girly movies (The Princess Bride and Legally Blonde) and sewed away to my heart's content. Without interuption. What bliss! I made the shells of 20 tote bags for my next market. 20! I felt such achievement for that day. And very relaxed.

Here's some of the totes. They just need finishing and handles.

Also this week I've been making up mini yo yo clips. I made big ones for my last market and I had people comment that they'd love smaller ones. So, I've been making some up and I really like them.

Sunday Citar

I realised yesterday that we haven't taken a picture of Luke in his cot and he is 15 months old! So last night after his bath we popped him in his cot to try to take a picture of him. Well. It took a while, but we got it! And I love it :)
