New art

Hey bloggers! As promised, here are a few pieces of finished artwork for my new stationery set. The stationery set includes notepaper, matching envelopes and stickers. It will soon be available to buy at my store.

I finally got my printer to work properly so I've printed the set myself and hand-made the envelopes for a more personal touch! It was so much fun making, designing and seeing the final thing printed!

Oh and I almost forgot! Do you guys remember ages ago, I designed a page for the 2010 diary project? To refresh your memories, go back here. Well, the lovely Lucy has printed and sent me the final product! It's absolutely stunning and I love all the other artists' work. Each page is unique and different, there's nothing like it. And now I get to flick through and will eventually visit every single artist's website. So much fun! To have a look at the artist's inside the diary or to purchase one go here.

Sweets and candy,

Just scroll down to the link on the left and you can now buy advertising space on my blog for an extremely low price! I've got 2 sizes you can choose from: 100x100 pixels (for $2.00 AUS) or 200x200 pixels (for $3.50 AUS). These last only for 1 month.

All you need to do is decide which size you would like. Then use the scroll down bar and click 'BUY NOW'. It will take you to the paypal secure site to detemine payment. You can easily pay through paypal OR if you don't have a paypal account and would rather pay buy credit card just choose this option (to the right of the secure payment paypal page).

P.S. Notice the new artwork? Yay! That's coming soon...

Super Hero

The other weekend we had a themed dress-up BBQ party. The theme: Super Hero.

After days of racking my brain I fnally decided to go as Batgirl. It was the easiest. Wear black, cape, and a mask. I also cut the bat logo from yellow felt and made a yellow belt! The party was a lot of fun and the outfits looked great. Here were the heroes who turned up:

G.I. Joe
G.I. Jane
Sailor Moon

So if you ever need to dress-up as something, I hope this has inspired you just a little bit!

I've been out of action for a while mainly due to work and preparing to go on vacation! But now I have returned and I know I say this all the time, but I vow to keep up-to-date with blogging. We're in the process of getting internet at home so it'll make posting on my blog, etsy and twittering a lot easier! (i hope!)

Not many of you know this about me, but I LOVE to travel. When I was little, we were asked what are dreams were and all my friends would say, "I want to grow up, have babies and be a good mum". Well my dream was, "I want to travel the whole wide world!" But sadly, I havn't been to many places overseas. I plan to visit Europe, Japan, America, Egypt and NZ next so I'll just keep working away, making enough money until I have enough to take each one head on! But first on the list was Thailand and I'm happy to say that 2 weeks ago... that's where I was!

My favourite thing about Patong Beach in Phuket? The shopping! And I did a lot! I bought bags, wallets, clothes, dresses, socks, dvds, food, shoes, jewellery and bags... and bags... and bags! I bought a lot of bags! I bought presents for mum, dad and my sister and by the end I was so worried my luggage bag would be over the limit! But I wasn't (lucky, I wouldn't have been able throw away anything).

I've been pretty stressed at work recently so this vacation was the perfect thing to do! And it was the most relaxing thing I've done. Thinking about it now just makes me remember how relaxed and carefree I was. We rode on elephants (so cute and clever), ate a lot of food (breakfast was my fave - buffet!), went on a speedboat tour around the 42 islands they have there (so much to see), went on a city tour (cashew nut factory, viewpoints, big buddha, world's biggest gem factory, temples), went to the FantaSea show (spectacular!), went canoeing (fun!), got foot massages, body scrubs, and pedicures (so cheap and so good), went cave exploring (slippery), and enjoyed the nightlife (Bangla Road)!

The only thing I didn't like: The plane trip. 9 hours. Cramped. Babies crying. Headache. But despite that, it was great! Every day was like an adventure. There's so much to see and do (and eat!) that it was hard to choose in the 10 days we were there! I would definately go again and can't wait til the day I do!

Next on my list: Japan!
