>I L-O-V-E Etsy and love any excuse to spent time searching around the creative Esty sellers. Recently I have been looking for a birthday present for my sister-in-law, she is turn the big 3-0 and is celebrating with an Alice in Wonderland inspired fancy dress party. As of yet not sure what me and my WH (wonderful husband) are going to dress up as yet, but I still have time.
>Bet ya didn’t even know I was gone, me and WH (wonderful husband) decided on a whim to got to Toowoomba to see the Carnival of Flowers, it was a very last minute decision, went on Wednesday morning and decided to go mid way through Tuesday. I will post about what we did and the photo’s we took later. Still have to go through all the photos we took!
>This month I splashed out on a showcase spot for my Etsy store. It is in the housewares section woohoo!
>Sunday is my night for really sitting back and indulging in reading blogs and traveling around the world without having to leave the comfort of my couch.
Today we are starting at my very creative & talent cousins Talia’s blog Life’s Visual Journal, she started it after she got married in 2007 in response to never ending question ‘How is married life?’. In her own words her blog is about “The Creative Endeavours of a twenty-something chick geek with Nanna tendencies (read: naps, crafts, embroidery, forgetfulness)!’
First stop Hello Owl by Danielle, I love her blog banner such a beautiful & bold pattern! I find myself very drawn to blue, even though my favourite colour is green. Apparently I look the best in blue too, or atleast that is what my husband tells me, opps! Back on track. I like this blog because if I am feeling creatively blocked then I can hop over to Hello Owl, there are regular challenges and loads of inspiration. Danielle is also pregnant, and has this great section called ‘bump watch’ some great bump pictures love the shrinking view of her feet!
Lets keep moving……
Second stop Danimezza, again great blog banner! Such a sucker for great doodling. I opened her blog up and was greeted by one of my fav things, great thrifty finds. Who doesn’t love a great bargain, and op shops are full of bargains with in build personality. This blog follows the life of the creator, with great pictures (her own & fashion pics). Love the hat pictures!
And our final stop on our trip…….
Third stop Kevin and Amanda.com by Kevin and Amanda (surprise!). Very very cute dogs. Kevin and Amanda blog about their comings and goings. Check out the links down the left side and you’ll find some great shots from around their home, their dogs & trips they have taken. I must say that I want that scrapbooking room! Looking at the links along the top, you’ll find one that says ‘Free Fonts‘, got to check it out! Amanda makes fonts for free out of peoples handwriting and then offers them for free on her website. Great fonts if you don’t like your own handwriting for journalling.
>I think that I might be alittle addicted! It is fun to search around Etsy and see what other very creative people have made. There are some seriously cute things out there. Click here to see my other treasury lists.
>Our tickets to Wicked the musical turned up in the mail this week! Just the distraction that my WH (wonderful husband) needed. It has been a long week at work for him. It was my WH who wanted to go to see Wicked, he loves musicals. We are going in January, just in time for my sisters birthday who has a ticket to go with us. We will all be spending the weekend down in the city, go to the musical one evening and spend the next day exploring and giving my sister a nice birthday day.
Just now waiting on the tickets for the U2 concert in December. Again my WH’s idea, he is a huge U2 fan. Went to their last concert they played in Australia in 2006 and loved it! I enjoy going to concerts & musical too but I think mostly because of how much my WH enjoys them. I feed off his happiness and excitement it is quite infectious.
