Saturdays are for....

Perfecting homemade Light studios in preparation for 100's of stock photos to be taken. Best toot ever on this is from here



Pondering, once again, on how to refashion this kids jumper from the Op shop. OK, now Im thinking lap top bag and matching phone sock.

Turning gross lanyard with texta all over it (Thanks master nunde)
into new lanyard. Fantastic, now I can find my keys again.
Hey this will match my cool, really bright laptop bag and phone sock!
And finally Saturday is for eating Bounty Chocolate Tartlets that miss nunde whipped up. Will provide recipe when I pry it from her greedy recipe hogging hands.


2 things I noted today. 1. Light studio works great as you can see with the pic of the kids jumper 2. Sewing machine lights need to be daylight bulbs, not the warm globes. Those globes are a killer on your eyes if you spend hours sewing. I now have a clip on daylight globe lamp to fix that.
Have a good one guys
Cheers

Upcycling ships?

They have been doing it for years dont ya know?
This is the ship my stepfather John Lawler played a large role in sinking last year.
He has dived it 7 times since then and shared with me some of his personal pics


It has only been a few months, can you believe?
Look at the growth already!

Look at the grafitti, already!



I feel that if any member of your family gets their name on a plaque to be seen for all eternity then it is your right and duty to brag about it, so as is my right, I shall brag.


Well done John.
Upcycling ships. Gotta love that!

Time to Stock Make and Take

So it is back to work!
*moan/grumble/cry a little bit*
I had the nicest break ever and although I did nothing special, I think it just felt great to get 2009 over with. I never liked you 2009. I found you a bit of a struggle creatively and barely was a bag designed, rubbish rescued or a cupcake created due to commitments elsewhere.

It is time to start again in 2010
Yep, there it is, my catchy mantra for new the year.
START AGEN IN TWO THOUSAND AND TEN
Bugger off 2009
It was 11.30 pm when I decided to prepare myself for the new year.

After a few minutes of that gruelling exercise I came back  inside to blog about it, as one does when one is faced with stuff.
It is all pretty exciting stuff though. I have things to do this year.  Me things..nunde things, not other things.


(This picture is a test to refer to as my skills at editing hopefully improve. wish you could smell these. They smell gorgeous)


Here is hoping for more peace in places that are in pieces,
where ever that may be, however small or large.

Happy New Year

cheers

Melanie
