3 oh it's a magic number

Friday was my little man's 3rd Birthday.

He is totally enamoured with yellow at the moment ... so yellow it was!

We woke up and opened presents (yellow monster trucks, books and dvd's)
Went to McDonald's for breakfast (Yellow arches)
Came home and baked a cake

I asked Lauren from Raspberry Pink to make me some monkeys for to put on the cake - they are AMAZING

Watched our new birthday dvd's (Hairy McLairy - yellow case of course!)
Ate dinner with our family and then CAKE! (Big Yellow Cake!)

The next day we went to the Pine Hills Festival and celebrated with more family and friends there.

I made him his own special birthday T

We saw Dora the Explorer and Boots, we ate lots of carnival food, went on rides and shopped at the markets.
It was a great Birthday!

Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day in MAY ...

Remember Giveaway Day in December on Sew Mama Sew's Blog?

In case you were busy planning for the holidays and missed it, she coordinated one day when everyone with a shop or blog could give something away. All the participants were listed on her blog to create one master list.

The last Giveaway Day was a great success. And now she's using reader's suggestions to make our May Giveaway Day even better! This time everyone will leave their giveaways open for several days to give readers a more relaxed browsing experience.

Basically all you have to do is leave a comment here for your chance to win these clips!


Then pop over to Sew Mama Sew on May 27th EST (US) to check out the master list and enter as many as possible!

Out of the Loop ... In with the Giveaways

After spending a few days sorting my sewing room I have decided to finish ALL the unfinished projects and miscellanea floating around so I ---
  • a) Have some more stock to sell out
  • b) can see my floor again as it is covered in green bags full of unfinished projects
  • c) have peace of mind when I cut my fabulous new stuff simmering in my head!
After finding 8 (sheesh) yep, 8 girls dresses, 2 hoodies, 3 wrap skirts, 3 derby skirts, 1 medieval top, 1 baby sleeper bag, 4 aprons, 2 halter dresses and much more left to sew together and making great headway last night --- I CUT THEM ALL LAST YEAR BEFORE WINTER --- I am compelled to finish them, and even a little ashamed that it's taken so long.

So I wont be here for a while, at least a week, so I draw your attention to the giveaways of

Kitty Boo Boo

on this months BrisStyle Blog.

4ZzZ Trash and Treasure Mini Markets

What a fantastic day, I had a great time, caught up with friends, spread some Kitty Boo Boo love, coveted and fondled Scampsville wares, bagged a Phatsville latest edition, bought the kids a few finger puppets from Wicked Child Designs.

The Trash and Treasure was AWESOME and the baked goodies were just the ticket! Those Brownie's were ace Scampsville's mum!

I renewed my subscription, and hope HEAPS of others did too!

4ZzZ is a rock in Brisbane and we can't let it go ... check them out HERE, there are podcasts and live streaming ... and now they are GREENER too (solar powered baby!)

Oh oh and oh ... I also found this little treat in Rave Magazine (sorry for quality - just a snap at the moment ... will scan later) if you click on the pic it's bigger and you can actually read it!

Get Yer Roller on!


Ever since I was a kid I have been fascinated with skating ... speed, agility, bumping, banging, crashing ... sweeeeet. My first skates didn't have a key but they were adjustable. I use to borrow my Aunties Skates and roll around the streets of Alexandria in Sydney, and Xanadu was GOLD. Derby takes it that one step further ... it's tough and it's amazing ...
How cool is it that it's had a resurgence! I love all things Derby and now you can too
