My favourite workshop at this years @handmadefair had to be the wire bead jewellery making with @katandbeejewellery . She is so talented and has totally inspired me to continue at home! My wire and bead collection now has a new lease of life! 🙌🏻✨
Aussie slang for moving fast! And I don't know about you but for us time is moving like a possum up a gum tree as the holidays are once again nearly upon us!!! I am looking forward to a break in routine but man alive 2 more weeks of entertainment to get in with 🍭⚽️🏏⛸🏄♀️🎧🎬🎲🚕🛶⛱🎢📸🛌 May the force be with you
Aaaaaahh Tuesday! The first day of the week when I can think, and be, and do, uninterrupted, for the morning at least. I've finished processing orders, and now I'm going to settle down with a cuppa, my laptop, the first episode of series 5 Orange is the new black (I'm so hooked!), and work on some Christmas sack designs. Have a happy uplifting day everyone 😘
I had so much fun again at this years @handmadefair . I was so engrossed in what I was doing im not sure I have enough snaps for a post but fingers crossed I have enough footage to make a small video! 🙏🏻 hoping you all had a fab Monday 😊
Beach day 🏖
Iguana Beach 🦎 is my fave in the area, not only because it has the nicest people and a cafe that makes the best ice coffees, but because of these colourful sun umbrellas 😍 Red, yellow and green are the colours of earth, our common ground 🔥🌳🌻 #beachday ☀️ #naturelover#earthling#visitgreece#visitcrete
I have a textile problem. Rug count: 4. Pillow count: 6.
Good thing I'm banking with the Bank of Kendra since my debit card no longer works. Highly recommend the service. She'll even run two miles to find an ATM for you while you try to "haggle like a Berber." 🏃♀️💸 #nonormaldays
BACK in Stock. Our Djeco Origami Planes are for the little aviators out there who love to go flying. A craft kit with colourfully illustrated paper you fold to create wonderful flying machines. A great small gift for your gift stash, stocking filler or raining day activity. #awholelotoflove#giftstoplaylearnlove
NEW DJECO. A kirigami craft winner! Make 6 parachutes with tissue paper, string, beads and sticker people and watch them float through the air. A great small gift for your gift stash, stocking filler or raining day activity. #awholelotoflove#giftstoplaylearnlove
Lately, my sister has got us into knitting, quite good timing really as I need to find hobbies that encourage me to sit down. Yesterday we went to a learn to knit session at our local library, it was really nice and both of the boys enjoyed it. I'd love to say I made this beautiful blanket but all credit has to go to my clever mother in law. The only thing I have produced so far is that rather scruffy looking square ☺️. I'm not too focused on making things - I just enjoy listening to the click clack of the needles. If you need something that relaxes you for 5 minutes I'd recommend it. A bit like yoga but with wool 😊#nozoominginnow#whpmadewithlove
Who knew my jeans and the backseat of a Vauxhall Insignia with tinted windows would make for such a good backdrop for my hastily created flower crown! (7.30 -7.45 this morning!) Felt I had to step up my headdress game for the last day @handmadefair. Craft-offs with @heartzeena, felt cacti workshops with @molliemakes and more customising with @swarovski.createyourstyle. It's going to be a busy day!
SOMEBODY stayed up late working on deadlines for this crazy week of work ahead (and has big regrets about doing that). Then SOMEBODY woke up needing to be escorted for a pee just as I had fallen asleep. Then SOMEBODY was drunkenly belting out church songs walking past my house in the middle of the night and woke me up. Then, SOMEBODY woke up at 5am bright as a button ready for the day. Only one of those somebodies was me. I'll let you do the guessing...
Today we left Morocco after a slow morning and the purchase of rug #3 . 💸 We drove several hours through the Atlas Mountains and toured Kasbah Ait Ben Haddou (pictured) before arriving at the sweetest riad in Ouarzazate.
Current struggles: Not enough local cash, one canceled debit card and one canceled flight. Thanks Ryanair. It's like Morocco doesn't want us to leave. 🙃
Oh, fun fact: They filmed Gladiator and #GameofThrones here. #nonormaldays
Ever sit back and think about how blessed you are? Not for the things you have but the life you've created. Living by the ocean is a constant reminder of how beautiful life truly is. Sometimes we just need to pause, take a deep breath and appreciate the little things. Guess it helps that it's local summer at the moment down here... and we are loving every hot minute. #vitaminsea
