I was amazed at how many people were doing Halloween this year!
Jayden had his heart set on it, and I was dreading it, expecting no one in our area to be prepared, or in the mood. I had 9 kids, (word got around that i was taking Jayden, Jack and Hannah and I became the designated adult)! It was fun though, people put black and orange balloons out the front if they had candy for the kids, (apparently its called candy on Halloween, not lollies). I guess its now a tradition, no chance of recycling those vampire capes, $1.00 at spotlight, Jack's had to be sewn before we even went trick or treating and Hannah's fell apart as we got home!
All asleep now, too much "candy" and a few belly aches!
Happy halloween!!!!!

She's Not a Shabby Sheila!!!!

I made another Shabby Chic Top and it seemed only fitting that I take the photos in front of the Shabby Chic Shop at the end of the street.
Hannah Looks gorgeous, as always! She is wearing the shabby top with blue drill ruffle pants, and the perfect accessorie, the purple flower headband with Grandma's vintage buttons.

Baby Doll Dress

This dress has been my 2nd best seller on!
I have enough fabric left to make maybe 1 size 2 and 1 size 1 or 1 bigger dress!
I have been looking for new fabric to replace the yellow/orange floral but so far haven't found anything that grabs me. The next thing to consider is that, so far I haven't made one of these for Hannah!

4 Tomorrow

the first 6 months seemed endless, Hannah cried non stop and Jack puked constantly!
If we were up, dressed and out the house before midday it was because my Mum had gotten there early. I still remember the first day that Mum didn't come, sitting on the lounge in the morning with Jayden and 2 little babies thinking crap, how do I do this? But I did! I survived and so did you! Eventually Hannah went on solids and stopped crying, Jack got mobile and we were always standing in vomit.
Honestly though, even though sometimes it was hard, mostly its been fun, you are both so much fun and bring so much joy. I love to hear you laughing together, playing make believe....
To Jack, my superhero and to Hannah, my girly girl
I love you! Happy Birthday!

and to Sarah Jessica Parker, look out girlfriend Hannah likes your sandals!!!!!

Anything but....

Mellow Yellow

It works as either a dress or top, its different, not found in kmart!
I loved this fabric when I saw it! Yesterday I had this dress sitting on a picnic table, since I was going to take photos, Vicki (my sister) spotted it and even though I told her it was a size 4 dress, she was adamant that Jordan would be trying it on! Lucky too because this looks awesome as a top on the little bit bigger girls, tweenies?
$28.00 ea + $6.00 postage

I bought the kids a new trampoline today, a 12" enclosed one. Hubby was sick but I really wanted to get it up for the kids to play on so Zac (17) and I spent 2 hrs and got it together. I hope it doesn't fall down in the next breeze! Pretty proud of myself actually, construction of that nature has never really been my stong point, neither has reading instructions.
And just to let you know 4 on the tramp at once is too many! I worked that out real quick, 17 seconds 1 collision and 2 kids crying.

Little Hippy Flower Child

I bought this fabric a while ago and then wasn't sure what to do with it!
I think I've found the answer though. I do quite like this! Do you?
Dress will come with the crocheted flower headband, with one of my Grandma's vintage buttons.
Cute and fun!
$30.00 + $6.00 postage

Little Princess

....... covered in dirt and snail slime!

I finally decided I needed to do something about the garden the other day and Jack and Hannah had a great time with the thousand or so snails that were happily munching away on my plants.

I dont know whether to be proud or horrified that my girly girl will happily play for ages with something so icky!
It seemed like a good idea then, to have a snail race. Hannah had 2 entrants, 1 easily recognisable by its "a little bit" squished shell.
( I must add that despite them being slimy and icky, and unwanted in my garden, I did feel a certain amount of concern for their well being).
Jack had only the 1 entrant and treated him with somewhat more kindness than Hannah did hers!

..... and the winner is
2 of the snails who after a stressful afternoon, were put safely back in the garden and live to eat another of my plants!
