Getting ready for Spring

Well the past few weeks have been a bit of a blur. The exhibition went really well. I sold quite a few things, among them The Follicle Painting *sigh*. All in all it was a fantastic experience and it has inspired me to get a wriggle on for Spring.
Over the past few months I've had to put my shop on hold as Hubby needed to amend our DA for a business he's starting up. I've had to wait until the amendment was approved and as such, had to close. The good news is that the approval has finally come through. The bad news is that in my hiatus, the shop is rather messy. I need to get stuck into it today and set up these little treats...... 

It's all about earrings!!!

I've also been sewing up some neckpieces out of old ties. I've seen quite a few of them on Etsy and thought I'd give them a go. They're super easy to make and are a nice alternative to a scarf. The ties only cost me 50 cents each from Vinnies and I stitched them up whilst watching movies. If however you're not wanting to make your own,  go have a peek at Alisa Neweys website "Ties and Whimsy". Apart from having a FANTASTIC name, her tie creations are amazeballs.

This one is waiting for embellishment however I wore it the other day with a brooch

My "cooey" pose. I'm calling out for Spring to hurry the bloody hell up! If the wattle and daffies are in bloom, it's supposed to come soon right?

I best be off now. The sun is shining and my sheets need a drying.

Enjoy your day!

Dear Booey

Yesterday you turned 5. I can't believe how fast those years have gone. You have grown to be an amazing little girl with a heart of gold. I love everything about you.  I love your generous spirit, the way you stir your sister, your stubbornness and your determination, your cuddles and your sweet gentle kisses. I love that you know how to delay bedtime by starting to play with mummies hair. I love how your new favourite movie is "Girls Just Want To Have Fun", and that you insist on wearing a leotard and stockings whilst watching it. You are amazing and I'm so very proud and blessed that God decided to make me your mumma. I hope you enjoy your party tomorrow, you've worked very hard this week helping mumma with all the decorations. It makes my heart sing, seeing you this excited :)

You rock my world.

Mumma loves you lady bug xxx
