I love to recycle!

It's lots of fun to create using something that would otherwise have ended up in landfill.

A few weeks ago I purchased some scraps from an online seller. I asked about fabric sizes and paid good money. What I got from the seller was disappointing to say the least. I sent her an email and never got a response. I wasn't asking for my money back or to return the fabric.

I sat and looked at the scraps for a really long time. The sizes and fabric weren't even suitable for a fabric covered button.

When I had my handmade store open I loved making rosettes. So with a little tweaking and hard work I was able to turn some unusable fabric into some gorgeous rosettes (most of the rosettes in this post are made with fabric from my stash)

The Postie

Why is it that the Postie never delivers on days when I'm organised.

By organised I mean showered and out of my pjs.

Most mornings I get so caught up with packing orders, photographing stock, avoiding any cleaning that before I know it the buzzer is going crazy and the postie is here.

I do the mad rush to find something to wear, brush my hair, grab some shoes and get down to the internal door as soon as possible.

There are some days where I will wear my pjs down to meet him.... these are the days when there are workman doing something to the apartments (ah sprung)

Then I have days like today. I'm up and organised but I know nothing will be delivered today.

Neglected Blog

My little blog has been neglected.

I'm back and hopefully regular blogging will return.

I thought I would start by sharing a photo of Brissy. This was taken a few weeks back on a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon (before the heat set in).

My camera spends most of it's time in Macro mode so it was great to change the lense and use landscape.
