Baby Room

Hello! With not long to go until Baby Jones arrives, I thought it was time to do a little blog post on the baby room - I'll try my best to credit where items are from.
I have a few more projects ready to put up on the blog in the next month or so, so watch this space!

We wanted quite a simple room that was easy to keep tidy and that didn't require a new paint job! My theme was to use a combination of white, cream, gold and wood - with a few bits of pale pink now that we know we are having a girl.

Christmas Wrapping 2014

I'm back!! The first Baby Jones is on it's way in May next year and so the blog has taken a little back seat for a few months.

But I'm just in time for a little Christmas Eve wrapping show and tell. Nice and simple this year - these cards were some little thank you gifts for a few people. The red decorations were from our local Christmas shop.

I love this jar from K-mart ($6), I wish I'd stocked up!

And here is the family wrapping for the year. Decorations also from the Christmas shop, and white tulle and card is from Spotlight.

We are working and travelling over the next week or two but I'm looking forward to getting back into my paper craft and posting all about it on here soon.
Thanks so much to those who have had a peek at the blog this year, I hope you have been inspired in some way!

Cork gift tags

I'm back! I hit a little bit of a creative wall for a month or two - and I lost my confidence! But I have decided to sell some goods with some friends at the next East End Markets in October so I had to start getting things sorted. These are a few gift tag ideas I've come up with. 

They are two layered - which I kinda like! The top layer is cork card and the bottom is Kraft card, which can be written on. I like that someone could keep the top layer long after a birthday, celebration or event is over. I painted the white circle and stamped on top.

Painted stools

Hello! We found a few stools at the Hospice Shop and they have served as bedside tables for the last year. We like the idea of not having a cabinet or bedside table with lots of shelves, because they just get messy and full of stuff! These stools only have room for a book or two, a glass of water and a phone so they are perfect for what we need. 

All they needed were a light sand, a quick paint and then another sand to give them the distressed, weathered look we were after. 

We are slowly trying to declutter and simplify our space, and it feels good! x

Duvet cover is from Ikea, and our amazing fluffy pillow is from the Warehouse.
