Quickie craft Canvas revamps.


 
I had these beige little canvases in my guest room and they looked good till we changed the room colours to blue and white....
 
Now I liked these canvases as they fitted on the small space we had them on but oh the colour was wrong...
 
I used a piece of fabric I found in my stash and by starting at the corners I used a staple gun to do the corners first.
 
Then I just stapled each side pulling the fabric to keep it taught...
 
 
 
And as quick as I started they were finished....
 
Even I was surprised by just how easy they were to do....
 
So now if I see a canvas and its wrong I know how easy it is to change the look.

Timber wall



When we did the guest room reno I got this bird wallpaper .

When I got the wallpaper I wasn't real happy but I thought it would look much better on the wall...

It wasn't but I could live with it...

Well I did for awhile then I bought a blue and white quilt to go in the room and then I knew the wall paper had to go...


I had seen where someone had used timber flooring on the wall and I liked it.

So one Sunday Kevin started to put the timber on the wall and slowly the wallpaper went and slowly I started to smile...



I cant believe how great it looked....

Kev just used a nail gun to put it on the walls and by Sunday night it was finished...

Probably could have been finished sooner but he is a perfectionist sometimes....


LOVE IT......


So I am really loving the wall now so all we have to do is  finish the room with blue and white pieces ...

Urghh you all know how I hate blue and white ha ha

Black and White blanket update.


I saw this blanket on a friends post on Instagram and fell in love with it...

So in a mad rush it was up to the wool shop and I got all my supplies and once again the world felt good.....

What I don't do things like that do I ?


Now for the life of me I couldn't get this bloody pattern URGHHHH

So back to the wool shop to see if they could help me before I chucked it....

What do I do that?

Actually I do but I get it from my mother ha ha ....


Well somehow I worked it out with the woolshops help and I am back to doing it...

I like the pattern now that I can do it the only problem is it is too short it is only going to be a lap or bassinette throw if I was to do it again (maybe ) I would do it twice the size.....

Now to finish it before I get sick of it and move onto something else...

Do I do that ?

YES I BLOODY WELL DO ...ha ha

First day of school 2016.




Well my little man started 3rd class this year OMG can you believe it he is now in primary school...


He loves the fact that he is growing up real fast and is going to be tall..Nooooo where is my baby?


Da has  is now Dad or Daddy and he is probably Aidan's best friend.He is always calling out to him for Daddy to come for a swim or a bike ride...

 I nearly cried when I did this collage .

Just seeing how much he has grown up .....lucky you can still see some excitement at the thought of going back to school although how long this will last is any ones idea.

So mothers gather your kids tight tonight and kiss them and remember just how fast they are growing...

I don't think I will let Aidan go

Newest family member part 1

We have decided to get another dog....

It was a hard decision as we all loved Miss Lilly and I think its that reason that why we knew the time was right.

This time we wanted another Boxer.We loved our Boxer Spud she had the best temperament and fitted into the family well so a Boxer it was and oh it had to be red and a girl.

Yep a big order but if it was to happen it had to tick our list....



And we found the pup who ticked our list and touched our heart....


Since our first Boxer was called Spud Kev suggested we call this one Chip.....yep that's Kevin's sense of humour....


So here is our Chip...


She is four almost five weeks here....


She has such beautiful markings just like we wanted....


I want to take her home now ha ha ...


Aidan fell in love with her which sealed the deal....


So here is Miss Chip we will be picking you up very soon pup so welcome to our family...xx

The old white church birdhouse

Kevin bought me a white church birdhouse 10 or more years ago but being in the weather with the sun and rain had taken its toll on it...


Kev wanted to throw it out but I couldn't let him I really loved this birdhouse...


So Kev said he would try to repair it but couldn't promise anything....


Slowly the Church started to come together again....


I knew I was right and that Kev would do a great job...


We decided to put it on a post and placed it in the garden looking over where our girls are buried.
Spud and Miss Lilly.

I feel this Church was meant to be fixed so it could watch over the girls as beautifully as it does...


Thanks Kev you did a beautiful job....

Bits and Bobs 1




How cute is this jar ....

I put a pack of fairy lights inside the glass cloche with a pear....


I decided to get Aidan a Santa sack .He has never had one so now was the time to get one.

Big W had a sale on so I ordered it from there and we received it within a week .Great service great product.


Lately one of Aidans favourite things to do is to go Ten Pin Bowling .So here we are at bowling again and this time Aidan won .

He beat Kevin and Uncle Alan and he was the happiest little boy...


Just had to show this picture of mum and John it is really lovely..


How cute is my little Levi....and he hasn't lost any of his hair either...


I am sick and tired of either making or buying those cheap Advent calenders so when I saw this in Target I knew it would be coming home with me ...

The "A" is one I made last year...


My two boys at Kevin's work Christmas party....

We had a great day there so thanks Schindler...



I bet you cant guess who was excited to get this slippery slide for the pool.he he he


Me and my cheeky little boy Jaxon...


I am a farmer look at my lovely fig fruit ....these surprised me when they popped out but fingers crossed that they grow and I can make something yum for kev.
