My Flutterfly - A new crafty venture (and a giveaway!!)

I have recently set up a little online store on (visit my store here) to sell decor and accessories for children. I have been busy for the last week or so making some cute little fabric mobiles for children's bedrooms or playrooms. I have set up a facebook page for My Flutterfly and would love it if you could join and help me get the word out. As a thankyou for joining I will be doing a giveaway of a birdhouse mobile in the colour of your choice from the 4 mobiles you can see below (sorry, Australian residents only). All you need to do is join my facebook page then leave a comment for me on this post. As soon as I have 70 people 'liking' My Flutterfly on facebook I will choose a random winner (please remember to leave your email address with your comment).

I will be doing a market with my friend Kate in June to sell our goodies. I have a few projects on the go, such as children's applique canvases, fabric bead necklaces, bunting and frameable pictures to match the birdhouses. If you are interested in purchasing any of these please email me at for more information.

Well, I hope you like my mobiles. I will post more about my other projects as soon as I get some pictures taken.


Just Add Vintage

This week at Just Add Ink the challenge is to add vintage. Well, even though I really like vintage style, I almost never use it when I am creating something. So I wanted to make a scrapbook page for the challenge and I had this beautiful sepia photo of Grace that I thought would look perfect for a vintage style layout. I am fairly happy with how it turned out apt from my journalling (or lack thereof, lol). I have thought if doing an online journalling course before (can't remember where I saw it advertised though) as I just don't know where to start. Does anyone have any tips for me?
Well, that is all for this week's challenge. Check out my new venture above - fabric mobiles for kids' rooms as part of my new online store 'My Flutterfly'.

Thanks for looking!

Just Add Ink #13

Hi there! I am finally here to update my blog. I have had a few weeks of non-blogging - life is busy! I have been away to visit my Grandmother and take Grace to meet her for the first time, had my Mum, my sister and her kids come to visit and have also been to Sydney for a shopping trip to Ikea ith my mother's group friends. Yay, love Ikea!
In between all of that I managed to get my design team project done and I have to say I am quite happy with how it turned out. I have been playing around with my new toy - my Big Shot - and my dies, as well as a new paper punch. This week's challenge at Just Add Ink is a colour challenge. Barely Banana, Kiwi Kiss and Chocolate Chip. I wasn't sure how I was going to approach this one. I rarely use Barely Banana. But I just started playing and my card came together really well.

Well, I hope you like my card. Let me know what you think.As always, thanks for looking!
