Getting my thriftiness on...

Those of you who follow me on instagram (honidesign) will have already seen this but I thought I'd share here as well.

I popped into Alannah Hill the other day and wanted to buy simply everything in the store....but the budget just doesn't stretch to those luxuries these days. So I made my way to vinnies and bought a plain red cardie and some silver glitter buttons from spotlight. I had some lace and sequins in my stash and I 'glammed up' the cardie. I'm pretty darn impressed with the results too!

I also decided to make little Lucy a mini tutu :) can't get enough of baby tutus!!

Busy busy

I'm happy to say that I've managed to find time to craft with a baby, despite soooo many people telling me I wouldn't! It's funny how people can say unintentionally mean things. I think if you want to do something then you just need to put your mind to it and do it!!

So I've been knitting squares for charity (2 more squares done) glittering beads, sewing (a headband for lucy) and lots more.

And of course I've spent a lot of time playing with my gorgeous baby. She provides me with endless smiles and is an absolute angel.

Born to knit

This year I'm knitting a few squares for the Born to Knit charity blanket collection. Last year I rallied the knitters at work and we made 3 whole blankets. This year the lovely ditmeister took the reins and is collecting the squares. I've made 2 squares (pre Lucy days ) but now that we seem to have a little routine going with Lucy I'm hoping I can bang out a few more squares.

If you'd like to participate you can view more information at

Oh and I managed to knit this hot water bottle cover for my Ma.

Little Lucy Lemondrop

The sweetest, funniest little girl in the world. I love her more than life itself and can't imagine life without her now. She's changing daily and it's amazing to watch.

One week to go

Ive greatly neglected this blog... But I've been busy making my greatest project yet... This little critter! I've been busy with awful morning sickness, tiredness, nesting and setting up the baby's room. There's been a lot of crafting but I've only been updating instagram (am honidesign on there too).

So now I have I week to go till bubba long legs arrives and I promise I'll update this blog with some piccies when he or she enters this world.

A new adventure

I decided to up skill myself and enrolled in a class I have wanted to do for YEARS- a Flamework Glass course! I had an absolute ball and cannot wait for the next lesson on Thursday (it's a 7week course).
Hopefully this will mean a whole new craft adventure for me!! (I'm not sure Mr Honi shares my enthusiasm for bringing another craft into our home- especially one that involves fire and molten glass!)
