Comic fun for your little artists

Hey there beautiful bloggers!
Its holiday time here, Yay!!! But its also a rainy day. So to keep the boys ( and me) from going to stir crazy in the house we came up with this idea...

Make your own comic books!!

Binx and Beef could draw all day long and they love reading and comic books so we combined their love and here it is.

Super simple to make. I finally figured out how to add documents (yay me!) so I have included the cover page and the blank pages for you to print out. Just make sure your set to landscape before you print.

Blank comic book pages

Blank comic book title page

I went with cardboard for the cover and back cover - just left that blank.
and printed out about 10 pages of comic strips on plain paper.

Next I use a two hole punch on the left side of the paper.

Then bound all the pages together with black string. Wind it around through the holes a couple of times. Just a hint - Leave the string long after tying it off for now. My boys changed their minds a few times and we had to untie the string so it is easier if you don't cut it short just yet.

Then let their imaginations run wild!

Have fun everyone!

Hey beautiful bloggers!

I was so excited to see this post the other day on Lil Blue BOO!

We are having so much fun since we bought the rights to make and sell LBB's sienna dress pattern. Here are a couple of them that are in the shop...

Taking a minute

Hey there beautiful bloggers!

I just wanted to share a tiny part of my day today. Bean and I were rushing out the door as usual and walking hand in hand down the stairs. We got part of the way down and she stopped and wouldn't go any further. I was just about to pick her up and keep going when she tilted her head up and closed her eyes.

I stopped what I was doing and tilted my head up too ( I didn't close my eyes because I DON'T trust her on the stairs yet) I felt the sun on my face and the breeze whispering past, I heard the soft twinkling of the chimes near my ears. I just took a minute.

Then Bean smiled this beautiful big smile, opened her eyes and continue down the stairs.

I learn so much from this amazing 18month old about appreciating the world around me. There are so many things I take for granted. I am so thankful I get to see them all again through her beautiful eyes.

Look what came in the mail!!

Eeeek we are so so excited to show off our new Chimi Changa dress!! I am so in love with this dress. The colours and the screenprint, oh its all just too cute!

I am getting quite a collection of them. I bought two, won one and got one free with the dress. They are adorable! When I finish making frames for them I will post a piccy for you all.

Sewing up a storm

Sorry I have been ignoring you all. See Sam has its first markets of the year coming up so we have been busy bees getting ready!
I sewed for nearly 5 hours straight today! With Cuppa breaks of course. Amanda and I cut and overlocked 15 funky new skirts! Whatever doesn't sell in the markets will be going into the See Sam Made It store

Here is a quick peek at one of the new skirts. Lots of fun colours!!!

Well better get back to it.

New Layout!

Welcome to my new look!

I am starting to get the hang of this blog thing a little now so I thought I would settle in and make myself at home. Starting with a More me look. I really like it, what do you think ? Its so much cleaner, clearer and cuter.

Now I need to get a little more acquainted with the ins and outs of the technical side. I finally figured out to hyperlink the other day, yay me! Now I am determined to figure out how to post a collage and a pdf file.

Stay tuned my fellow bloggers!

Bec xoxo
