Yoyo my day away ... my space today

After drafting some patterns for belts and making up the templates I didn't actually feel like cutting out today ... so after 8 loads of washing and other boring monotonous housework I managed to squeeze in some time on my day off to make some yoyo's.

I use these babies on headbands, hairclips, brooches, belts, anything I can stitch or glue them on to. I LOVE THEM. And they'll be all over stuff I'm making for the South Bank Young Designer Markets on Nov 1st and also the BrisStyle Markets on Dec 5th

Kitchen Delights and Kitty Brights ...

Yay for summer ... in my house we like to cook light and summer is the season for fish and salad. We can't seem to get enough and it's amazing how the same four basic ingredients can be so wholly changed with a few extra herbs and spices ...

Last night it was a throw together - I had meant to have a Thai Salad but we didn't go shopping so with the fish Pete brought home I julienned some potatoes and after frying them up I doused them with a sprinkle of lime and chilli salt.

The fish was pan fried with more lime and some Ketjap Manis. I used baby roma tomatoes and chunks of coriander in the salad. After sprinkling with ground coriander I mixed up some olive oil, sweet chilli, lemon juice and salt and poured that over.


We had a garage sale last weekend and my neighbour and friend Liz popped over and we were discussing wool. She recently started felting and loves it. I happened to have a few balls of wool that she could no longer get and to show her gratitude she made Erin a felt Kitty like the others she has been making.

The photos really don't do this kitty justice

She makes Babushkas, Retro Kitty Cats and she brought over a bag with a beautiful wrap and hat and some felt slippers she has made.

I'm trying to get her onto Etsy because her stuff is that great

Halloween Creepy Cute Giveaway!

Hidie Hi from some little creepy cute guys ... these boys are buddies which is good because I'm sure Sam will have them having duals and wars ... I love watching the kids play with toys I make and usually they're a bit cute so it's even cooler that both Sam and Erin like these guys too ...

I love the creepy side of my crafting, having been a goth for many years I still have a hankering for black stuff and lace etc every now and then so I love Halloween because it means that side of me can be expressed with free will

I know we don't really celebrate Halloween here in Australia and I know it's actually at the wrong time of year for us too but I do so love it ... the kids and I will dress up and hand out treats and watch The Nightmare Before Christmas (and when they go to bed I'll watch my beloved Donnie Darko)

What are your plans this Halloween?

Leave me a comment, follow my blog and you could win one of these ... but hurry ... giveaway ends on the 26th Oct at 9pm AEST (the clips in the packet are devil horns!)

And the winner is ...

Thanks to all who commented on the giveaway post ... I have asked my trusty sidekick for a random number and he chose number 3 ... so the winner of these clips is Little Mary Moo ...
congratulations - (stick in there Sam, I'll have another swallow giveaway soon!)
