Easter 2017

The year seems to be flying & suddenly Easter is starting to appear.Easter eggs & hot cross buns have been around for a while now, but I tend to ignore them. When I start seeing beautiful Easter collections from talented designers, then I know it's on its way. I have seen gorgeous Easter bags, bonnets, soft toys & delicious handmade chocolates. My Easter collection this year has a new bunny in town. I wanted to keep him & her simple this year, & have them especially for this fun occasion, but also make sure they were sweet enough to be beautiful gifts for nurseries. Drawing this year's bunny was a bit of a struggle. I wasn't really happy with him...

Kids Valentines

I am not really into Valentine's Day, well what I mean is my hubby & I don't buy each other gifts on this date. To be honest I am not really sure why, but I know some of the stuffed toys I see at the florists make me cringe. Maybe the fear of receiving one of those has propelled me? HaHa. However I do love handmade Valentine gifts & crafts, especially those Valentine gifts that you can make for your kids. Such a super cute way to let them know how much you love them, or for them to let heir friends know how much they are liked. Take a look at these sweet printables, so simple & cute. Photo cred...

I bought a Thermomix!!

I finally bought a Thermomix!It's been on my mind for so long, I really wanted one. A couple of times I nearly bought one & chickened out at the last minute. Initially, I thought I didn't REALLY need one as my Kitchen Aid, & current blender was perfectly OK. That was about 2 years ago. Then my neighbour had a demo & bought one.Some mums from school bought them. I'd hear them gloating about their "thermie" dishes, & how delicious time saving they were. I was totally glued to their discussions on delicious recipes & how fast they were.  Totally envious.I went to another friends demo & was so inspired & ready to buy one. But I chickened out again due to cost,...
