Princesses and Pirates!

I am partaking in my first showcase on facebook and it has been somewhat fun! My friend Julia who runs Booti Tutu has organised a showcase on her FB page in the theme of Princesses and Pirates. It is a way of show casing other creative people in face book land. It is amazing what other ladies have made in the theme.

I enjoyed making the items for this showcase. I had a huge 1kg skein of wool to divide up and then hand dye with some items in mind.

and then a wee Pirate contribution ♥

Gosh the milo took some work with adapting the chart to the number of stitches and then doing it upside down! It was made for a hat knitted bottom up but the Milo vest is knitted top down! Anyway I won! I got the skulls and crossbones chart from here.

Please check out the showcase offerings as there are some wonderful items available! The items are available from 7.30pm on Friday March 8th.

I am going to be doing some rainbow inspired items for another friend’s “Rainbow” Showcase in April…

Crafty MoJo

I found some crafty mojo whilst doing a recent “Kitchen Themed” swap. I must admit I got some inspiration from a link I saw on Pinterest (OMG that site is A M A Z I N G!!! You have been warned!) for the jazzed up tea towels from here. I saw some awesome bright coloured tea towels at Spotlight on special and then found some equally cool ricrac to spice them up.

I then wanted something else to go with it so had to think some more. Hard sometimes to have a bit of quiet to do this thinking thing with three children including a 3.5 month old baby!!! 😆 I had a canvas with a half done painting on it from DD1 that wasnt overlly lovely so used that as the basis for the inspiration wall art. I used some card stock, left over ric rac and some buttons in stash to complete it and my sister in law painted over the canvas for me.

Sit Long, ,Talk Much & Laugh Often

I also added in some bright pink with white dots serviettes.

Altogether ready to be packaged up (minus the serviettes)

Now to stalk the mailbox for my surprise!!! FUN!!!

Oh and I have to get organised for another swap to be done next week!! FUN again!!!

I also would like to share some photos of my girls and especially of Holly who is 3.5 months old now.

Excited! I am flying down to Wellington to partake in Craft 2.0 even tomorrow as Coco Kids have a stall for the second time. We have all been busy amongst the busy-ness of our family lives.

Here is a funny photo that just looks bizarre! I am taking my daughters doll to demo some of the items…here she is in my suitcase. It just looks wrong!
