its the most wonderful time of the year

Oh I love Christmas! I hope you all had the most wonderful Christmas! I certainly did, spent with my family all day long! It was magical. Having children in the family really make it so much more special. One of my favourite things about christmas is Giving presents! I received some amazing ones but today I'm going to share some special ones i gifted!

I gave this Jen Booth Necklace to my sister in law, i'd really like one for myself

These aren't the exact Blackmilk tights I got my little sister but they are similar I got some too I LOVE them

My mum gave me some catbird stacker rings and I got these gems for my friend casey 

I got a thief and bandit dresses for my three nieces, they are beautifully handprinted and super cute on

and how could i not get this mug for my friend stacey 

I'm sad its all over for another year, but super grateful for how special it was!

Have a safe and happy new years xoxox

The School with Lulu Lucky

Last weekend I attended a class at the School  with my friend Kelly. The class was taught by Lulu Lucky (Kara) an uber friendly 'creative'. Kara learnt how to make a paper chandelier when she was having a baby to hang over the babies crib. They are a polish tradition and a called Pajaki. They bring good luck and good health. Megan Morton greeted us when we arrived and made us feel so welcome before the crafting begun. 

to be honest i found the most difficult part of the whole day, choosing my colours! I even added some green right at the last minute. I ended up going with yellow as my base colour and added pink, blue, orange and green. I think it turned out pretty well.

Kelly's turned out great too!

Feeling very inspired this week, at school we have a bit of a battle of the staff rooms going on. We have a Christmas competition, and the best decorated staffroom wins. My staffroom has been using out creativity and hand making all the Christmas deorations. So of course after last weekend I had to make a Christmas themed chandelier! I got some year 1 kids on board and we made this one in two hours! I think ti's given us a bit of edge over the other staff rooms. what do you think?

Wedding Wednesday

Two weekends ago i spent a big chunk of my Sunday compiling these invitations for my friends Jen and Mark who get married in February. Jen knew she wanted Kraft paper colouring and gave me a few ideas and this is what I came up with. The paper was purchased from lava stationary, the envelopes are poppies for grace the doily paper was from a local shop called super dollar and the twine from the reject shop.

I looked on pinterest for inspiration. Heres some other invitations I really liked.

It's got me thinking about our wedding invitations. I think I'll actually make them these school holidays. I don't want to spoil the surprise for me guests though so i'll keep it under my belt for now.

Wedding Wednesday

Wedding rings........
I tried some wedding bands on over the holidays with Toby. He did too... i'm really unsure as to what i would like. I wish I was bold enough to get this from Catbirdnyc if only i could try it on and they'd make it for me in white gold. Would black diamonds take away from my white diamond??

what do you think? black diamonds... sigh

Wedding Wednesday

I came across a beautiful wedding on Green wedding shoes earlier this week. The wedding was inspired by the store free people, although I haven't been there (it's not in Australia) i have frequented there online store ad perhaps one of my bridesmaid dresses is from there. The bride wore a stunning Sarah Seven dress.

My Favourite part about Adam and Stacy's wedding was the dream catcher seating chart... isn't it creative

Here's a link to the post on their wedding

Minnie Mouse Cake

My eldest niece Millie turned four in september. She rang me the week before and asked if I could make her a cake. I replied "of course, what would you like" and she said Minnie Mouse! I searched different cakes and decided to use the recipe that i used for Blair's but didnt make as many layers. There is lots of different Minnie cakes out there but i decided to make Minnie's head. I carved out the ears from a bigger cake and made her eyes nose and mouth out of marzipan. 

Her reaction to the cake was... "where is her arms and legs" hahaha but she liked it.

Heres the gorgeous 4 year old
