Someone wrote om our whiteboard
'I work in marketing because I'm creative'
And some cheeky bugger changed it to...
'I work in marketing because I'm not creative enough to work in an agency'
Hehe made me giggle anyway......ok back to work..............

I'm totally loving it!!
I'll feel a little lost I think once the wedding is over. I'll have have to create a whole new lot of crafty projects for myself!!
the cards in the left hand corner are Moo Mini Cards. They are just the bestest thing EVER! If you don't have a business card, go get yourself some of these!! We got some printed to tie onto the Bonbonnerie (or as Mr Honi says..Bomaderry)

I had patchy detail memories of the place, then mum showed me these pics the other day and it all came flooding back.
It’s no wonder I have an immense passion for Vintage things when I grew up around a place like this!

The baby is being christened just after our wedding so I want to be able to give it to them before we go on our honeymoon.

YES- I work for a Telco. NO- I haven't received any benefits for posting about this phone!!
I have wanted a new phone for AGES and it's taken me 5 years to decide what phone I wanted to buy!
This phone does just soooooo much. Here's just some of the things it can do:
- I can use Gmail on it
- I can check my blog, and all my lovely readers blogs on it. It has a complete web browser with a touch screen AND a mouse to ensure easy browsing
- I can take a picture and email it to my blog which creates a post!!
- I get all my comments emailed to me, so because I can access Gmail, comments come through to me like an SMS message
Other things I can do:
- use the qwerty keyboard - which makes emailing sooooo easy
- check google maps with street view (perfect for finding my way to Brown Owl meets)
- do google searches
- download any number of free applications which do things from providing an on-screen ruler to tracking my menstrual cycle!!

We decided to have disposable cameras on each table and when we went looking for them, wedding disposable cameras were more expensive than standard ones!! So I just went into the reject shop and bought 11 “party cameras” that had a hideous cover and I made new covers for them.

I was showing mum and dad the great magnet when Dad said......
“Oh, did you know there’s a lady who made a whole dress out that sellage….selly….sella-whatever…..the edge of the material stuff”
Well, for Dad to know about Jodi, I think means that she’s pretty darn famous!
He was quiet stoked when I told him that this card was from “that lady who made the dress”
Thanks Jodi – your magnet has pride of place on the fridge – and thanks for making dear old Dad feel VERY cool because he can say he knows all about the selvedge dress and chair! (and yes, he can pronounce it properly now too!)

These fabrics will be used in a new baby cot quilt for peanut (my soon to be niece/nephew). As we don’t know what it’s going to be I’ve decided to make it in bright yellows, greens, aqua and purpley pink. I think it’s going to look quite funky.
It’s going to be a wonky log cabin, as I was totally inspired by the ones that Amy @ Badskirt made. The monkey is fussy cut from a piece of material that has all wind up toys. So I'll pick each toy and make it the centre of the square.
I'm really excited about this one as it's different to what I've done before. And I am promising myself that I will finish it in ONE MONTH. Dear readers, please chase me up and make sure I get this one done in my timeframe!!!!
As for not finishing my other projects....
I can finish the corners of this quilt now that I have some cute fabric,
And I'm going to take this quilt to MO (as mentioned in the previous post)
I needed to buy some more fat quarters as I have a new little niece or nephew on the way in a few months so I want to get sewing and have a few things finished before the wedding.
I've decided to make this little elephant called "Peanut" as this is what we've been calling the little bub!
It's from this gorgeous book
and here's a close up of the fabric. I don't normally like clowns but this is very cute material..

WOW!!! I sent this from my mobile to blogger!! AWESOME!!
Cool Pic of some boots and random shoes at Eden Gardens in North Ryde. That place rocks so much! Mr Honi and I love it there, and often go there to get our coffee on the weekends.

A night filled with cups of tea, delicious home made cakes and goodies (Jess is an AMAZING cook!) gossip, stitching and laughs.
It was lovely to meet other like minded girls. We all discovered each others passions and crafty aspirations and it seems we all want to crochet a “nana rug” for the coming winter.

I had gone to great lengths to protect the budding tomatoes that were growing, by placing the toe of a stock over EACH ONE and then stapling it in place.
The possums managed to de-bunk my protection methods and ripped the toms off the tree and ate through the stocking.
We are so annoyed. I am no longer allowed to mention the words “possum” or “tomato” in the house.
