Fabric Book cover

Hey there,

I finally got my 2010 diary for the year. I have been looking since January for the perfect one, but they were at least $40 for ones that had all the features I wanted and didn't look hideous. Well this little one I found on special for $7 with everything I needed was boring and manly looking.

Thank goodness for crafting blogs though! I remembered this tutorial from the brilliant V & Co.
and made this....

Ahhhh much better! I used up some fabric scraps and made it into a diary I actually want to use and carry with me. Its soooooo not perfect, all crooked and only just fits, but I love it, and it was quick and easy to make. Oh and its removable so I can take it off and put it on next years diary too.

That's it for me tonight, hope all is well in your world tonight!

Big Brothers

I love my sisters, they are my best friends. They taught me everything I know and inspire me everyday to be a better person, and to live in the moment and just have fun. So I was sad that Bean does not have a sister. Someone to giggle with late into the night and share clothes and secrets with.

But she is very very lucky to have two big brothers.

They will always be there to protect her and teach her, and probably tease her, and most importantly they will be there to help her up if she ever falls down.

Goodnight beautiful bloggers, I am off to call my brother :)

Back to school

Hey there beautiful bloggers :)

I haven't posted in ages. We have been very busy getting back into the school schedule, with the EARLY mornings and packing school lunches again. We B's are not early morning people!

Bean and I have been moping around the house this week waiting for the boys to come home, it's so quiet and clean without them, which I will soon appreciate but just for this week at least I am missing their laughing and running and star wars battle-cry's and even missing finding Lego men in very unusual places all over the house. Here are some pics of my very-grown-up Grade 1 boy and I-can't-believe-he-is-in Grade 5 boy...

And guess what I got!!!

My sweet friend found this at a garage for a bargain price and called me and told me to get down there quickly. It was a great price but didn't come with a manual so I talked them down a little more. Yay, Yay, Yay!! I am so excited, I have been practising with a lot of help from Google and You Tube I think I am getting the hang of it.

OK that's it for me, I have a dress I need to get finished today, I will post pics when I am done and it is safely winging its way to its new owner.
