Snapshots // October 2015...

1. Most of our mornings don't look like this. Usually someone is crying, hungry, still sleepy.... usually me!
2. The cute old style buildings of Newcastle. We finally made a day trip up the coast to the Hunt & Gather Markets. Well worth it.
3. Axel and I enjoying my new birthday present. Bit of bike-cam on a stunning spring day by the water, we stopped to watch the diggers fixing the storm damage. 
4. We now have a two year old in the house. Nothing terrible about it ;) well maybe the toilet training...I forgot how messy it can be. Any tips please let me know.  
5. Biggest smile when you can finally ride your own bike at the skate park with dad. 
6. Perfect spring beach days. This Little Tienda dress is just gorgeous! and I seriously want one. Handmade and hand embroidered, it's just perfect for hot Aussie summer days. (model Patchwork Cactus)
7. One thing I learnt this month....Did you know this flower is called 'Pigface'? seriously....Terrible name for such a pretty flower.
8. I ran out of merino roving. So I fixed that problem, now I think I own at least half a sheep. Check out the colours.
9. My latest pink sparkly creations. You might have already seen this weave on my Instagram or Facebook
10. Ever been to Gerringong? I have twice... first time well it wasn't so nice. My little lady was only two at the time and we went down for a weekend get away. She ended up getting sick, vomit and all. So think we were there a whole 12 hours before we headed back home. THIS time so much nicer. The place is stunning. I went on a day road trip to pick up supplies for my upcoming weaving workshop. If you like rolling green hills, farms overlooking the ocean then you need to visit. I really want to try for that weekend away again.

Fun With Pom Poms // Lets Make A Cactus...

Seriously! How much fun are pom-poms? It doesn't matter if you're five or eighty two it's something you can make and once you've mastered the basic pom-pom you'll be able to knock this bad boy up in no time.

You're going to need a few things...
One medium sized green pom-pomOne small sized pink pom-pomOne medium sized brown pom-pomScissors Glue (I highly recommend using a hot glue gun, much easier and less messy).Cardboard egg container (to use one cup section as the cacti's little pot). Some Paint (I used gold spray paint).

Firstly cut and trim one egg cup section from the carton. Paint your egg cup container 'Pot' and leave it to dry. It should be dry by the time you have finished cutting your cactus into shape.

Make your three different pom-poms in the colours and sizes needed. (Make sure you leave the tied pom-pom strings through the centre of the pom-poms long, you'll need these to tie your pink and green pom-poms together). 

The trickiest part …
