With the Australian $$ being really high again, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to do some (more) online shopping. I want to frame all my prints and drawings etc that I have collected over the years and hang them in my stairwell. There are a few white walls on the way down asking to have some colour added. I am a white gallery walls kind of person and like to let artworks have a neutral backdrop, so these little antique sea life prints should be a lovely addition to my ever changing collection. They arrived in our mailbox yesterday. I purchased them from Trampoline on Etsy - thanks Kim, I loved the way you packaged them, so simple and lovely.

Now, to find some frames...

6 Six Seis Sechs Eksi Roku

An unbelievable 6 years has passed with our beautiful Luca growing into such a gorgeous, fun loving, very serious at times, kind hearted boy. He has lots of friends and is interested in all kind of wonderful things. Each year is passing even faster than the last and his mind is absorbing anything and everything. He is bright, smart and trying so hard to be athletic. We love you so much our beautiful boy. Happy 6th Birthday Luca - we love you to the moon and back! xoxo

Chocolate Crackles

Tomorrow my big boy turns 6! Instead of cupcakes for his class at School, we decided to make some Chocolate Crackles. His birthday party in a couple of weeks will have a Club Penguin theme to it, so we found some little penguins to add to the chocolate crackles as well. Aren't they cute?

Summer Quilts????

I've been trying to use some of my fabric stash, and have made a strip quilt for Luca. Remi's is next and will be blue and green. Summer is just around the corner and these quilts are a bit of a contradiction in themselves. Summer fabrics in a winter quilt - go figure! Even if they won't be used to cover them up, they will look lovely on their beds.

Sand between our toes...

We have been back from Malolo Island in Fiji for 6 days now, and we are ready to book our trip again for next year. It was such a relaxing, fun time on the Island. An amazing Kids Club {our kids are so 'at home' in Fiji}, beautiful snorkeling, dinners without the kids, gorgeous surroundings and peace and quiet, all made for an absolutely beautiful time - it's just really easy on the Island. Coming back to reality is always sad for us, lucky we only have about 500 pics to look at over and over again. 

As well as both of the kids being sick this week, the weather hasn't been to nice either *sigh*. Maybe I can get some time in my studio today, to tidy up a little, and begin working again next week. I have SO many thoughts and ideas running around in my head, so much so that it is keeping me up at night. Maybe I am still on "Fiji time" - I wish!
