Cut & Snip
so its been a little quiet in our household. My big boy is away skiing and we miss him a lot but Ive my little ones keeping me company and I get loads of cuddles and attention. With work and everything in between , the days go by real fast!!
Ive spent my lonely nights crafting and cutting out vintage images whilst watching TV. Im hooked on Anthony Bourdain’s ‘No Reservations’(...love the guy!!!)
Miami Ink and (eeek!!) a new addiction ‘the girls of the Playboy Mansion’….its quite entertaining actually and Hugh Hefner is a hoot…haha how sad of me!!
whats even sadder is when the girls were doing a book signing on one of the episodes and some mothers were there with the tweenies saying ‘Ohhh ohhh my daughter wants to be a playboy bunny too’…. Now that’s just weird….
I found these vintage school reader books the other day – such sweet illustrations! love stuff like this!
Here are the images I have been cutting
I have 4 large Burda and Simplicity books from the 60’s and they have about 1000pages each so Im stocked up – the illustrations are really happy and make me smile!!
If anyone wants some images, Im more than happy to swap some – just email me! Im after black and white vintage images....
Im busy making some papergoods for
Meet me at Mike’s second store which is opening in Melbourne next month.
Very exciting for me to have some of my stuff in a real shop!! Its on consignment and I think Pip is such a wonderful supporter of Handmade goodness!
Cant wait to visit her store one day – it looks like so much fun and they have embroidery nights– how cool!!!
I also got this bag in the mail yesterday – its from Paula’s OtchiPotchi range and is just beautiful!!! It will be my Summer weekend tote – love it!!
I got a bonus at work so I splurged on a new leather bag last month, I felt a little guilty as it wasn’t a cheap purchase and I am a huge bargain hunter but I think I deserve it…. Work is crazy most days!
