It's been a while...

It's been four years...! My girly is now 6 years old. We've been married for almost 8 years and young Mr Fox helped himself to about 9 of my chickens during the winters.. Life goes on!

 Every spring we can't wait to see the new lambs in the field.
We don't actually keep sheep, but another farmer uses our fields and it's lovely to be 'part' of it.



Life is good when the sun is out! Yasmin loves  playing outside (these are from 2013)


For a while I dabbled in tutu making... it was fun while it lasted



We made a guitar cake for Daddy's birthday!


Another tutu and a gorgeous model :)


Glass Painting is my new passion and I get a lot of ideas from Pinterest... I will be putting my own ideas on there, for others to use :)

 In September 2013 we visited South Africa again. 
Local beaches are usually full of sand art for tourist to enjoy



 Wild flowers are Calla Lilies
 instead of Daffodils like in the UK


We came accross this odd 'saloon' restaurant where you can feed a donkey and donate money towards the wellbeing of donkeys all round.

It also had this tiny little museum with a few interesting pieces.



November 2013
Yasmin wanted a mermaid party! I went all out!


Pirate bananas


Seaweed decorations from our local scraps store


Made a photoboard


Ordered a mermaid cake


Octopus sausages





Blue Jelly made by using food colouring 





That's pretty much our 2013 covered.

Who has time to do this??

Fail... I have not blogged for a year and a half. How bad is that? But with promoting 5 online shops and marketing.. (the ever addictive Pintrest is a big time consumer), I have totally nelected my blog.

I hope to get back into it again in full swing, because it shares a little bit of me with a whole lot of world. And thats a nice thought.

Today.. I think I will choose some things from one of the online sites I sell on. Initially I was a bit slow to promote it, because I didn't see any real success. I have yet to sell my any of my OWN products on there, but it has become a really lovely and quirky place to shop.

Have a looksee!!

Get on your Walking Shoes - Folksy Friday

Today my Folksy Friday is inspired by Shoes.. mainly because my daughter is on the verge of giving her first steps.. and she is obsessed with shoes... like her mummy :)

GDH Photography

Some time ago I sent a tutu to  a photographer that I thought would make them look great. Allthought it was initially meant for a little princess photoshoot, he has gone on to use it  in a different way and made it look even better than I imagined. The photographer is Gary Hill. He is an absolute genius when it comes to all aspects of the job! I'm very proud that we won a Gold Award for one of the pictures.

I wish he was closer though, because I would love to have him take pics of my little Yas. Maybe I'll take a trip one of these days, hehe.




I've just sent him another one and can't wait to see what he comes up with next !
