sorry it has been ages between posts, my laptop died and the replacement until mine gets fixed has a terrible wireless receiver.

Normally by this time of year I would have all my Christmas presents brought and wrapped, you know in those pre baby years when I had a 9 - 5 job, got 8 hours sleep a night and was SO super organized about everything, well I am still pretty organized but shopping for Christmas Pressies in July doesn't really rate that high on my priority list anymore, but I do seem to be a bit more organized this year than last which is good.
I brought a panel of Kristen Doran 'Robot' Fabric from the lovely Slevedge House Girls at the Racecourse Rd festival and have made up 4 little robots and two matching little T-shirts for two special little boys I know...Two other little boys are both turning one this month so we whipped them up some cute little outfits...
And with this hot weather here in sunny Queensland even Xavier was lucky enough to get a couple of new outfits...
Plus just to make me even happier he motivated me to get a start on making for the next BrisStyle Indie Designers Market and I created some super cute onesies that we will have on sale especially for Christmas!
Then just to keep my happy mood flowing for the week I received a very special parcel from Bespoke Press, the 10 amazing Limited Edition Prints I recently won in their giveaway. Thanks so much Alischa! I LOVE them all, now to just work out where I am going to hang them ;)
Hope you are having a happy week too
p.s We are finally getting ourselves organized and will be starting to re-stock our ETSY store so stay tuned for some new products and a giveaway from us on the BrisStyle Blog next week ♥

Talking of framing I had the surprise of my life this week when I received an email from the lovely Alicea from Bespoke Press to say that I was the winner of their amazing giveaway of 10 limited edition Prints. I never win ANYTHING, so to not only win but to receive this amazing prize as you can imagine I was pretty excited!!! You can view the entire range via their website or shop
Em and I also got the chance to catch up a couple of times this week which was really nice as we really haven't had the chance to hang out as much as we use to lately. Our little ones were happy just hanging around
While their older brothers did some Caterpillar making with my brother Brett

Leave on a cooling rack until completely cool. While cooling whip your cream and icing sugar together and just as soft peaks are starting to form add your vanilla essence and continue to whip until stiff. You can either slice the puffs in half and fill or place cream in a piping bag with a small nozzle and stuff them by poking it into the holes you made earlier for the steam. Break the chocolate into small pieces and place in a glass bowl. Microwave for 1 minute and stir, if not completely melted place back in microwave for 30 sec bursts stirring in between. Drizzle with the melted chocolate and place into the fridge to set.

Anyway enough rambling, EmBelISH had a fantastic day in not only sales but a lot of our new products were also pretty well received and I was really pleased with our stall layout as well.
It was a super hot, bust day and the crowds were a plenty. Luckily there was a yummy lemonade man just a few stalls down from us that kept us going in the heat.
The BrisStyle Co-op stall was a great success also and it was so lovely to see so many talented BrisStylettes coming together to showcase their wares and it was also super nice to meet a lot of these lovely ladies in person as well. It was also great to see all the BrisStyle Stalls all lined up with our Green and Purple balloons linking us together!
I also have to say it was so fantastic to share a site for the day with the amazing Ali of Jellygnite and Little Jellygnite fame, she was such a great partner and helped to make the day go that little bit faster, and also to my amazing sister in-law Kym who was our chief helper and baby sitter extraordinaire and last but not least to our little helper, Xavier who not only helped draw in the crowds was a also a super good boy even though it was such a hot sweaty day J
Counting down now until Dec 5th!!!!
Take care, Bel x
p.s I will be back soon with a recipe for Nan’s cream puffs YUM!
