Dress refashion scribble note

Saw a girl walking down my street wearing this sort of dress and I had to scribble it down for future reference.

To celebrate Australia Day, I made a 'Best of the Aussies' Treasury on Etsy. Check it out here.

Also big thanks to Martha from OpenDoorStudio for her assistance. Today Martha is an honorary Aussie!

Getting organised

A few months ago I did a big spring clean of my house, especially my desk which was a complete mess. Then, for a few months, I enjoyed a wonderfully tidy desk, with every post-it note and paper clip available to me right when I needed it. But slowly the neatness started to disappear, and piles of stuff started to creep in again. Then, yesterday, I got fed up. Where was all this mess coming from? On closer inspection, most it was stationery that had no where to live but in piles on my desk. So I decided it was time to get crafty and make myself a stationery organiser.

It was pretty easy to make - really just cardboard and fabric from the stash. I think I'll probably put a tutorial for making one up here in the coming weeks.

And now, yes, peace and tidiness is with me again, as all those papers are tucked away neatly.

The dress

I made it! I finished the New Year's Eve dress in four days! Yay!

Unfortunately I failed to get a good photo of me in it on the night. It poured with rain and I wore the black shirt over it after getting drenched in the countdown downpour. What a load of fun though! Hula hoop ahoy!
