Introducing Adventure Girl

Last weekend Adventure girl came out to play (that's me when I'm adventurous)

This time the mission was to watch Earth Hour.Little did I know how extreme the night would be. I won't explain the whole story but I will tell you that there was lots of climbing involved, and with a little help I managed to make it without plummeting to the ground, Phew! After my knees stopped wobbling with fear it was exciting to see the spectacular view.

That was what it looked like over the edge, nice and safe :)

What did you do for Earth Hour?

Sewaholic

If you like sewing then I suggest you head over to the lovely Tasia from Vancouver's blog Sewaholic!

She writes about absolutely everything sewing related, she has heaps of handy tips and even makes her own patterns. Speaking of which I'm super excited that I received mine in the mail today!


Not only is the packaging beautifully designed, so are the cuts of the clothes which they make!

I can't wait to get started on them! oh and did I mention that Tasia also does a sew-a-long blog post series for each of her patterns? Just to help you through any tricky parts and give you all the best tips to reduce the unpicking! She's thought of it all, the toughest part is waiting for the patterns in the mail (which actually only took 6 days)

What did you find?


Yesterday I went to Finders Keepers! Hooray :) The atmosphere was amazing, and I was absolutely loving the paper pyramid installation




Alex was there :)


It was great to find Ink and Spindle there


I got to chat to the lovely ladies at bespoke about getting a wedding suite printed for my brother, I can't wait to get going on that little project! I also bought them this cute engagement card :)



My purchase for the day was this little gem by the lovely Cat Rabbit!

Such a little munchkin

Did you go to Finders Keepers? What did you think?

Street art

This little guy lives at a suburban station in Melbourne. A few years down the track he is still going strong and making people smile as they walk by each day :)

I hope they last for many more years!

30th Birthday Jelly

On the weekend we celebrated my brother and sister in-law's 30th Birthdays, and I thought it called for another jelly cake!

Finders Keepers!

So much has been happening lately!

I've been working on the products for the launch of Pom by pomegranate, a little textiles range to make sure my little blog doesn't get lonely! I'm launching this winter which is super exciting, and there will be a few little goodies to keep you all warm and fuzzy, and of course a pom pom or two.

While I've been working hard, I'm starting to get distracted by Finders Keepers
which is fast approaching! It's on this Saturday and Sunday in Melbourne and I can't wait. I've been having a look through the designers who will be there and I am saving my pennies! There looks like there will be a few new labels that I haven't seen before which is super exciting! I love chatting to and seeing what other crafters are spending their nights making.

I especially can't wait to see these cute little ones
by Okt - ober - dee,I might even splurge on one!

Bring it pom

Sadly it has been getting quite wintery very early this year, the only thing that makes me happy about this premature wintery weather is making pom poms and crocheting. I'm very excited to see that I won't be the only one getting my pom on this winter!
