Thank you ... and more!


This week I was lucky enough to receive 2 awards!

The Love Ya Award from Helen at Ruby 2 GoGo
One Lovely Blog Award
from Rebecca from Edward and Lily

These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends.
They are not interested in self-aggrandizement.
Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated.

Please give more attention to these writers.

Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

Then let everyone know...."

7 Things about me -

1. I wanted to change my name when I was little from Katie to Kitty after falling in love with the TV show The Sullivans ... even then I was a freak for the 40's

2. I miss movies from the 80's. They were family friendly, kids loved them and mum and dad could get a kick out of them too - Flight of the Navigator, Space camp, The Goonies, The Explorers etc, etc.

3. I wish I had better ability to not be distracted when on-line, so much to read, see, play, visit, comment on etc

4. My best friend lives in the UK ... I miss her heaps

5. I think I need an admin asst.

6. Everyday I meet someone who helps me change my perspective on how I live my life and how I can make my world happier

7. I overly use certain types of grammar, especially abbr. versions like etc, and the ...

Monday Madness and some burnt fingers!

Woo hoo the BrisStyle Indie Desgner Markets are only 3 weeks away ... so I spent the weekend making some more clips so I can get down to the more time consuming work of the stitching ...

I have some new ideas in the works ... again and NEVER enough time to complete or even start half of them!

Sometimes I do wish I didn't work and that I could stay at home with my kids and just make and make and bake and create.

But bills must be paid and internet usage is neither free nor cheap!

Here's a quick peek at the scene of creative chaos!

Also in the works are some cuffs, wristlets, spats and glorious glorious chokers and garters ... woo hoo to Burlesque and all things a wee bit sexy.

Coming along for the ride are of course more Derby skirts, more girls dresses and if I get time to finish them some extras for the boys
