Made it Monday..........

Some Christmas inspired hats as that season is on the horizon. It is a tad warm here for my girls to wear such hats but who cares if they look so cute!! 

They are in my shop if you would like to take a peep.

The winner circle.........

WPWD photo challenge with a twist- Spring racing carnival was the theme this time around. This photo is aptly named the winners circle.

P.S the dead rat smell was a dead rat that had died under the cupboards. The husband was very good and worked out how to get it out before we all suffocated from it. God it is an awful smell:(

There I am with my wares and at the end of our little sale. My table looks a little less full which is always a good sign that it was a success. Things sold that I wasn't really expecting to sell and then others were left behind that you think are the winners. You never can tell what people will spot and want but aside from that it is always nice that people like what they see and know you have created it with your hands.

Oh well now it is back to normal world of cooking and cleaning. We have a dead rat smell that I must contend with this morning.........wish me luck!!!

Last photo of goodies for tomorrows sale I promise. It is all for the benefit of the local peoples who may be thinking of coming along. See what you can get pretty felt Christmas ornaments for your tree or to decorate gifts or for whatever you please.

It has been a busy few weeks of sewing and stuffing so I may take a break for a few days and get the house tidy it has been a bit neglected. Then get back into making anything more I need for Xmas gifts for all my lucky family & friends!!

Fab Friday.............

 My owls!
 Busy Friday today!! Been very busy talking to my friend, Gemma about a little Christmas sale we are doing next week. My husbands workplace has a morning tea every Wednesday and on that day you can set up a little table to sell your wares. We have motivated one another to get off our butts and make some stuff to sell rather than just talking about our stuff that we would like to sell. 

Some squirrels!!

So here are some of my many doudous I have made, my owls that I love( I have many more but they all wouldn't sit in the tree for a photo, it's too windy) and some squirrels. I will show some more things tomorrow and show what my crafting partner is doing.

Now for those in Noumea and would like to see the things in person it is next Wednesday 23rd Nov, 9.30 at the SPC social club!!

Once in every Blythe doll owners life she/he pulls it apart to inspect what is inside and how it works.

Then you muck around with pastels and do a little face-up.

and then you put her back together a different girl. Here is Berenice pronounced Ber-re-nice with a wonderful French accent.

I am happy with my first attempt at customising a Blythe girl not sure if I will do more there are particular skills involved and not sure if I have them!

Here are some ladies that do do some fabulous customs.

I snuck in a bit of sewing on the couch time this afternoon. I don't always do it as I feel a bit guilty about sitting down while the hubby is at work and kids at school but these are little craft things that I am making for an upcoming sale I am having here. So it is kinda work isn't it????

I haven't talked about a book for a while and thought it about time I told you about the last book read in our book club. The death of Bunny Munro by Nick Cave. Well didn't this one cause a bit of a stir within the ladies. Some really liked it(me) and others thought it was a total waste of time and I can understand why. The novel is about a middle aged man who is a womanising, alcoholic which comes to a head after the sucide of his wife. He is a shady door to door beauty products salesman(who tries to get into their pants as well as sell cosmetics) and ends up going on a distructive road trip with his 9year old son. He finds he is losing his grip on reality which is quickly spiralling out of control.  It is dirty, crude, gritty, full of sex and mentions Kylie Minogue & Avril Lavinge several times.  The novel is abit like riding a rollercoaster, full of ups and downs, loads of twists and turns, and a cracking pace that threatens to derail it all.

Nick wrote this novel in 6 weeks on a tour bus. I originally bought it for my husband to read and put it up as a suggestion for the bookclub as everyone know Nick Cave because of his music but I don't think they really knew what goes on in his mind. I liked it & I would recommend it to anyone but only if you have a strong constitution, some of the ladies couldn't finish it. They said it made them physically sick. so with that in mind read at your own peril!!

Treasure Tuesday...............

It's all about the music today. Have discovered Lanie Lane and am loving it. Check out the link as it has a video of her lastest song.  And if you like her you may also like Imelda May.
