Sometimes as a crafty "I can try to do that" type of chick, I need to go....STUFF IT!! I haven't got the time, I can't afford the fabric, the wadding, my machine isn't working and I just don't feel like wrestling with the bloody thing.
So.....I go to eBay.
Thank you mother ebay for yet another swanky addition to my home. Love it!!
OH...and while I'm here...is anyone else having troubles with bloglines? I can't bring any of you up in my reader and my sanity is becoming questionable. I need my bloggy community FIX!!

It's time to dress up, blast the speakers and dance away the craziness of the silly season. It's time to wish all well and to embrace those close. It's time to enjoy the kids, the kids mates, the kids cousins, the kids cousins best friends and whoever else ends up walking through the door.
It's time for me to embrace my role of feeding them all.
May you survive the silly season with your head in still in tact and without loss of life or limb!!
Take care, see you in the new year! Love to you and yours. Leonie xx

She was the first to greet the car when we came down the drive. She was the first to meet you when you left the house. She was by my side constantly when I was in the garden or rushing out the door to feed the chooks and ducks. She was my buddy, my husbands mate and my kids very best friend.
She became very ill, very fast and this morning we had to say goodbye.
Rest in peace our beautiful girl. May you run free with all who need you in heaven. xxx

There has been a request........Could you please dress your child in period style clothing for their next excursion to a local historical village?
Thank you oppy gods, once again you have saved my hero parental status!
Take one white babies blanket ($1.00) fold in half = Shawl
Take one white shirt ($3.00), that would never typically enter our house, as my elf is often head first looking under rocks!
Add one adult hippy type skirt ($3.00), chop off the top couple of inches and pop in some elastic.
Dig deep into the scrap fabric basket for that old white sheet you new you would use for something someday.
Pop into spotty on the way home and grab some lace ($6.00)
Add Existing black boots and straw hat.
Done. Total cost $15.00 Not to shabby.

Sometimes being a creative type, and a big mouth at the same time, can be an absolute pain in the BUM!!
We decided to have a race day celebration for our local RDA. So ME being the IDIOT said "Wouldn't it be great if we could dress the kids up in racing colours to make them feel like a JOCKEY!!!"
6 HOURS and 10 bibs later......we have colours!
I am never doing this again.........never.......ever.....
They do look SMASHINGLY GOOD though!
