A Quilt and An Announcement

Hi! It’s been kind of quiet around here this year, hasn’t it? My posts have been sporadic at best, which I’m fully aware of. Not sure how many people still read my blog (going by my stats I would say not a lot, disappointingly), but for anyone still checking in, I wanted to explain my absence. But first, I made a quilt!

In case it isn’t super obvious, this quilt is a floor quilt. For a baby. Specifically, the baby I am pregnant with.

Before we moved last year, we only had a very small courtyard space… Continue reading ->

So this year’s Emmys red carpet was a welcome breath of fresh… Continue reading ->

Crafty Lady – Girl’s skirts

Girls skirts THUMBNAIL

I’ve been annoyed at little girl’s skirts in shops the past two Winters (and Summers, let’s be honest). They are usually about as long as the bottom of their bum cheeks, and even with tights on in Winter, they’re still too damn short for my liking, especially on my four year old with long, long… Continue reading ->

Beauty – Winter Beauty favourites

Heel Genius

Bliss hand cream $20 I know we’re in the depths of Winter because in the space of three weeks my hands have become cracked and dry, no matter how much hand cream I slather on them. I was looking at reviews of hand cream and this Bliss one came highly recommended. I already use their… Continue reading ->
