LA LA land

I went to LA in October to be the celebrant at my brother's wedding (so fun!) but only managed to snap a very few photos.  Unfortunately I wasn't feeling well for much of the trip but managed to have a lovely time hanging out with friends and family who were also in town for the wedding too.  I did manage a few quick trips to Mood, the LA fabric district and Joann's.  And there was a bit of crafting for the wedding too (well, just wrapping up the most generous guest boxes for out of town guests).


Don't these look great?


I got a few stickers from the Farmer's Market at the Grove, two cotton gauze fabrics (peacock feathers and cartoon animals), skeleton quilting fabric and laminated fox fabric at Michael Levine in the fabric district, knickers elastic from the trim shop I love in the fabric district (not pictured) and mint green silk from Mood (not pictured).  All in all, I don't think it was a crazy haul but as I'm trying to destash - not the most reserved either!

Another Card Round Up


I'm loving the envelop matches with some of these :)

Oophs I've done it again

Its been a really long since I posted (again).  Its been a hard year healthwise so I've been really behind the ball on a lot of things.  Thank God for time off over Christmas!  We lived in Melbourne for three months (fun and I miss the bubble tea on our doorstep!), came home and renovated our kitchen (should have been 5-6 weeks and turned into an epic 9) and stressful time in work.  But next year should be very different (for a few reasons!).  My computer didn't enjoy playing with me anymore and I'm finally back on top of a new laptop (iTunes installed as of today!).  So trying to work through my crafting backlog as I really appreciate this space as a location for sharing my makes.


A few relatively quick card makes using up some wooden embellishments.  I like how these turned out in the end.



I even repurposed one for Christmas :)


The paper was leftovers from some homemade envelope makes.  I'm going to try to run down my stored supplies a lot over the next year as I'll be losing my craft room (but for a lovely reason).


I love the variety and colour of these.  I definitely have to put a white sticker on the front of some of these or else the address won't be seen.  If I stick with my crafting plans, I may have to start thinking about selling them somehow (which either involves better photo taking or setting up a stall!).
