Crafternoon Wrap-up

Crafternoon went well yesterday even though our craft leader Ange was quite worse-for-wear after post birthday celebrations. We managed to craft-up a big bunch of origami lilies, and a few phony flowers (with minimal swear words... Tori!).

We also polished off a two batches of interesting scones, a selection of cookies, a few cups of tea, and a bottle of champas! We even had a little visit fom little baby James. Oh so cute! 'Cluck cluck'. 

So thanks girlies, we really put a dint in the number of flowers I have to make for wedding decorations and bouquets. 6 weeks to go! xox

I'm holding my own Crafternoon Tea today. Making flowers from Meet Me At Mikes new book for my wedding. I am so excited, but I better scram. I have to bake some scones! 

P.s. I'm now back on twitter, but it's all screwy. Hope to fix it soon (thanks for the headsup Liss x)

Cherry Blossom Girl

If you've never been to The Cherry Blossom Girl check her out. Alix is a recent fashion school graduate, and a designer with her own fashion line. She models these gorgous clothes and hot Chloe shoes, takes all the photos herself. I can't get over how beautiful every single photo is.

I just love her. Look how beautiful she is now in this portrait photo by Mark Abrahams. Apparently she's currently filming the next Twilight movie playing the role of Jane.

Someone's Jealous Here!

Oh Etsy, you've won me over again! I had no idea you were so full of such splendid things!

The very amazing couple from Something's Hiding Here give Etsy a tour of their incredible renovated Philadelphia loft. After watching this I spent 2 hours searching for a loft / wharehouse space to buy / rent in Brisbane... no success *sigh*.

Wherefor art thou Polaroid?

A sweet chick at my local coffee shop told me that you can hire polaroid cameras for weddings for about $30 from Sounds awesome but I can't actually find the info I need. Has anyone heard of this? Or anyone know where to buy cheap cameras?

Happy Sparkly Birthday Ange!

"Everything insipres me! A scarf around someone's neck, a blue in a Picasso painting, a stripe on the floor, a word in a book. I am like every artist, running in my head and stealing everything I see!" ~ Sonia Rykiel
