Just finished this baby, it says CREATE, painted it off white and put red and turquoise polka dots all over it :D So cute. When I finally get a craft room of my own this is going to be the colour scheme!
You would think that me being crafty I would make heaps of cute things for my 18 month old son to play with, but no he has to settle for all my trials of things I attempt to make, you should see his toy box, there are sad elephants with no faces, a sock n glove dog with his head not straight and no face, poor kid, anyway I have finally made him something, mind you he can't really play with it.... :S
Its an "N" for his door. When we finally move and he gets his own room we will be decorating it with a jungle theme. Hence the giraffe and the lion, der! LOL?
Please ignore the glue smudge near the giraffes neck, its annoying the beejesus out of me, but will have to do... HOPEFULLY no one will notice it when its on the door.

I made these for L who was in the maternal softie swap but didn't receive their softie. When I decided what to make I just had to make 3 for her 3 little girls, L, R, M.
I saw them made on Martha by Emily from Black apple.

Enjoy the buttony goodness :D

My latest softie has been recieved so I can now show him off to you, my loyal fans lol.
I saw a similar owl on an etsy seller and fell in love. He has the prettiest blue eyes don't you think?
The material which his ears are made of covers his whole back and on his bum is a little felt heart.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gocco (プリントゴッコ, Purinto Gokko?, "Print Gocco") is a self-contained compact color printing system invented in 1977 by Noboru Hayama. Gocco became immensely popular in Japan and it is estimated that one-third of Japanese households own a Print Gocco system.
Using flash bulbs similar to those found in old cameras, an original image is thermally imprinted on a master screen.
The name "print gocco" is derived from the Japanese word gokko (ごっこ, gokko?), loosely translated as make-believe play. Riso Kagaku president Noboru Hayama explained, "We [as kids] learned rules and knowledge through make-believe play. The spirit of play is an important cultural asset. I thought that I wanted to leave "play" in the product's name."
In December 2005, Gocco’s parent company, Riso Kagaku Corporation, announced it would end production of the Gocco system due to low sales in Japan. An Internet campaign was started to find a new home for the product.
As of June 2007, Riso Kagaku Corporation had resumed production of several lines of Print Gocco units and they were available in Japan and through limited import retail stores in the United States.On May 30, 2008, the Riso Kagaku Corporation announced that it will stop shipping Gocco printers in June 2008. They blamed the sharp decline in demand for their printers on the increase in use of home computers and printers. They will continue producing supplies for the printers until further notice. Information provided by the Japan Corporate News Network
I couldn't remember if this is what I had been seeing around being used by Elsie to make her cute little prints. But of course it was and it had everything in it, including paint!!!!
Gah I could kick myself! :( It didn't have a price on it but can't imagine it would have gone for much. Ah well off to trawl Ebay.

This product is a life saver! You know the Kitchen tea invites I did a few weeks ago well the date got changed and instead of sticking the new invite over the old one, I removed them with this god sent product!!!
Its made but Timbermate
This product is VERY toxic and must be kept out of reach of children. If swallowed don't induce vomiting and seek medical advice immediately.

As the title states, I did my first paying job! It was for a lovely mummy-to-be for her forthcoming baby shower's.
It is the same as the kitchen tea invites (see below) with a bit of tweaking here and there.
I am hoping this could turn into an ongoing thing, I would love to be able to earn money from doing creative stuff. Anyway, I loved doing these and can't wait for the next job!

Here is the final result of the Kitchen tea invite, I have printed them on matte photo paper at a Kodak Kiosk, which I wasn't overly happy with, the colour came out a little crap but it still looks ok, I then mounted them on metallic card stock with a baby blue grosgrain ribbon to fasten.

But forgot to take a pic of it before I posted it, so as soon as Sarah posts a pic of it I'll post it here!
I was quite happy with how it turned out, and the invisable stitching turned out better than I had thought too. I'm going to make one for Kate with green and brown polkadot materal.

How cute is this? I am so going to make this maybe for a little girl who's second bday is coming up!!! I might try my hand at some wings as well! You can find the Tute here .
My list seems to be growing and growing of gorgeous thing I want to make.
Well I'm at the half way mark with my felt book for the Vana CFAC (crafting for a cause) Its so bloody exhausting and all i'm doing to blanket stitch geee's!
Thought I would show off a card I made Dad for Fathers day last year I think. The technique is call tea bag folding (I think) and the paper is Japanese paper, not sure of the make. I think it turned out ok, I used some gold trim to make the obi.

I also am in a sewing swap with the forum ladies, its a softie swap, I have already had a go at a trial and it went ok, so I will give the real one a go soon, hopefully it turns out ok.
