A snippet of August

I'm wondering where the time has gone? This month has been very busy with lots of birthdays and other activities. Here is a snippet of what's been happening.....

Book Week/Open Day at Amelia's School. The theme was "The Galaxy" and my  munchkin wanted to be a moon and stars. I loved looking at all of her hard work.

Haidee wanted to be a Sun, complete with rainbow stockings :)

Don't be fooled. This cat is ca-razy!!! I love him, i really do....I just don't like being attacked by him when he's in one of his "moods". Seriously folks, I've never seen anything like it.  He is a ninja cat. He even beats up the dog! 

Haidee's 4th birthday. August is our busy month when it comes to birthdays.  I have created alot of cakes over the past few weeks.
 I've also been buckling down and doing some serious work. With the shop opening up soon, I have to build up my stock. It's been lots of fun but jeepers my hands are sore! Here are  a few of the pieces I've been working on.... 
 This piece is all hand wired using vintage bit's and bobs. 

I love this one. It's quite a large piece that consists of coral, cinnabar, carved wood  and vintage beads, chains and buttons. 

Some simple but intricate earrings for Spring.

And as always, my darling "tweets"
This afternoon I have to get stuck into a book carving. I'd much rather snuggle up on the lounge and watch a movie but that won't be happening anytime soon. 

Better be off now. I have a truck load of laundry to fold and put away and even more to hang out. 

Ah the joys in life :)

Have a lovely afternoon,

Alisa x

I used to love Bookweek as a teacher and seeing all the costumes the kids would arrive in. Both your girls look so cute in theirs, I especially love the sun headpiece.

Aren't your girls beautiful. My little niece turns 4 in December - it's such a cute age.
What pretty creations, all of them but I think the tweets are my favourite.

We also have a bundle of birthday's in August, it's a busy month... and I love it, as the promise of Spring is *just* around the corner.
Your tweets are sensational, you're very talented xo
