Blogtoberfest - Day 18

Umm well I suppose I should put this blogtoberfest down as a big fail.

I found this site that lists all the blogtoberfest blogs on order of last post and I actually wasn't last surprisingly.

I will promise to try really hard to find time to do a proper blog post tomorrow one with photos and everything.

Blogtoberfest–Day 9

Opp 9 days in and I have dropped the ball twice, I will try and make it up this week.

I got the bunting sign finished late late Friday night, but sort of miscalculated how big it is (this thing is huge) but was able to use it on our stall on Saturday.


The market was okay, it has just started a couple of months ago but hopefully over the next couple it can improve.

I have decided to apply to some larger markets over the next couple of months before Christmas so fingers crossed some miracle happens and I actually get in.

Oh and with the all the changes happening on Facebook, I have decided to list some of our items on MadeIt as well, which actually leads me to a questions, Does any one have any experience selling on MadeIt vrs Etsy and which do they find better (not costs but exposure)

Blogtoberfest - Day 5 Wordless Wednesday

More Wordless Wednesday here

Blogtoberfest–Day 4

Opps looking at the clock it is actually Day 5 here but I am sure in most of Australia it is still Day 4 Smile
One more family catch up post, two weeks ago this little boy
Bastian aged 10mths127
Turned 4IMG_1054
We had a lovely day at a miniature steam railway (Campbellfield) with the family some friends and one special friend from Kinder (I am not sure if Bastian was more excited of his actual birthday or Riley coming to his party.
Here is the cake I made, it was fun but in future I will not make a cake like this when we have almost an hour in the car to get to the venue, luckily it made it but there was a few times that we were not sure if it would.
Now tomorrow I promise that I will have some sewing photos of some sort Smile

Blogtoberfest–Day 3

Another catch up post today, this one is only 5 mths 18 days over due. What happened then well this little baby turned one
For his birthday I was stuck as to what to get him, I have found that when you have two children of the same sex and you tend to spoil the first born, it makes it a bit hard to decided on what to get the second child for Christmas and Birthday gifts. When I was at SIT I was talking to Clair from Craft Schmaft I told her that I loved her Woof woof kits and it was a shame that they didn’t come in boy colors, she told me that she could make me up a brown kit and so I found the perfect gift, and best of all it was hand made by Mummy.
This was the cake I made it was actually a lot harder to do then I thought icing all the individual cakes, but it was fun to make
Seeing it has been so long since his birthday I thought I would leave you with some more recent pictures of my baby boy, and I actually just realised that I did not take any photos at his actual birthday will have to ask the family if they took any.

Blogtoberfest– Day 2

Well this post is about 6 mths late but better late then never Smile

Back in March I was lucky enough to go to fly up to Sydney for the day to go to Sew It Together, I have originally planned to fly up for the weekend, but at that stage Lachie was still being breastfeed and with was having no luck weaning, so all I was able to manage was a day pass. I got up to leave at 4am and got home around 11pm so as you would imagine it was a long day, but a fantastic one at that.

i flew up with Esther & Alissa, and was excited to meet some on online crafty friends, Kayscha, Jen, Nicole, Karen, Helen.

Everyone who attended got a goodie bag with all of these things included, lots of marvellous patterns, fat quarters, scrap bags of Fabric from Hawthorne ThreadsIMG_7388

We also all got to chose something as a door prize.


I won a owl kit from Plushka’s Makery which I recently made up as a first birthday gift (and of course forgot to take a photo before I gifted it) and a key fob kit from Earthgirl Fabrics.

I also took part in the Namebadge swap before the event, I made this badge for Juddie 600

and this is the amazing badge I received from Clair of Craft Schmaft


Finally there were a few stalls there on the day and of course I made a few purchases. One from Craft Schmaft (the blue bag) that you will see the finished item in tomorrow’s post, the other were a wedge ruler from Material Obsession and a Ooshka Boy kit and extra face to make superheros for my boys from the Red Thread


Now I have next years SIT to look forward to which I believe is going to be held in lovely Canberra

Blogtoberfest - Day 1

I wasn’t going do it, I told myself I do not have the time, but as I read more and more post today I see a recurrent theme – people saying the wish they would blog more and maybe this will get them back into it. So here we go.

Go where, well for those of you who don’t know (and it most likely isn’t many) Tinniegirl is once again hosting Blogtoberfest, which is where you challenge yourself to post every day for the month of October, last year I tried and managed to do 17 posts, so I while I am hoping to blog all 31 days I will be happy to at least get to 18 posts.

I have loaded the blogger app to my phone in the hope that it will give me the chance to do a post at any time of the day.

As for what to post about that is easy as I have only managed 11 post this year, and 7 over those were in January I have lost to tell, My trip to Sydney for the day for SIT (yes I know I was meant to post about that months ago, told you have I have been slack) Lachie’s 1st Birthday, Bastian 4th Birthday, bee blocks I have made for Oh-Beehave (MMQG bee) and much more.

But for now I am going to leave you with one image especially for my good friend Carphoto
See you tomorrow
