The Calm before the Storm...

Well I am not sure what is going on but a strange calm has come about me in regards to the market this weekend. I got alot of stuff finished on the weekend and even managed to get a lot of stock counted, tagged and packed and even though I still have LOTS to do I am feeling ok about it all (this does not mean I will not be having minor heart failure later in the week ;)

I even found some time to make a quick trip to Ikea this morning and pick up some display material and catch up with my good friend Kate who brought me these amazing Russian Doll Measuring cups. They are so Cool! and are going to come in very handy this week measuring all the ingredients for the DIY cookies
I got some cute Pin Cushions finished over the weekend. I really want to keep one but seeing as I can't pick a favorite (I am SO indecisive) I am just going to bring them all along and will see what's left over, maybe lots maybe none :)
DH was amazingly supportive as usual and made up a little stand to display our onesies on and tonight is working out a little man to hang the capes on Ok better get back to it before those dark clouds start rolling in

Hopefully I will be back with some more updates this week, if not see you on the 5th

It's Magnetic...

Well I started my Bristyle Indie Market Prep in earnest on the weekend (nothing like last minute) and it was a gluing frenzy at our place yesterday

In an effort to use some of the supplies I have had lurking about I created these quite little glass bead magnets. They will be joining the other favorites on our magnet display board. They are just so cute I really don't want to part with them but I guess I will bring them along ;P
1. Glass Bead Magnets 2. Computer Keyboard magnets 3. Car Key Magnets 4. Mini Button Covered Magnets

All our magnets are made using small but super strong magnets, guaranteed to hold at least 6 A4 Sheets on your fridge and all (except the car sets) come in a cute little silver gift tin just perfect as little Christmas Pressies :)

I also got the chance to have a play with some old Lego blocks that my brother brought me whilst op shopping a few months ago. It was hard to get them away from Sax but in the end he was happy to let me have a few to turn into cute little rings (time permitting there maybe some brooches and magnets too, we'll see)

Talks are also underway with my fantastic hubby re displays, on the list so far is a little boy cut out just the right size to display our range of super hero capes and a little rack for those cute little onesies. Hopefully our display will start coming together next weekend and I will post you some pics early next week.

Any way better get back to it

take care, Bel x

p.s Also just wanted to wish my amazing Hubby a very very Happy Birthday today! Lots of love me and the boys xxx (yes I am making cream puffs for dessert!)

wondering if I could please have an extension on my BiDM Miss?

Somehow I dont think I will be able to convince all the other BrisStylettes that we should move BiDM just a few more weeks away!! I am trying to craft as much as I can in my extra time, but at the moment that is of the very minimum. Who needs sleep anyways!

As I have probably mentioned before (i cant even remember that) I am now a Tupperware demonstrator, and it has been going really well for me and I love it and the extra cash, but now that I am almost working full-time with Tuppy and my office job for our own business and looking after the 2 little boys I dont have a lot of time to spare. So please bear with me!!

Ok, so rather than posting on here, i really should be using my next 1 hr window before the next feed to get some things DONE for BiDM

see you all there!! more info over at the Brisstyle blog.

Organised... Not :(

When I worked in an office I was the most organized person I knew, I had lists for everything and had my days planned sometimes weeks in advance. When I had my first boy I think I was still pretty organized we had a rough schedule and stuck to it most days, this time around we have nothing and the more things I need to do the more unorganized I am becoming :(

I am hoping (maybe I should say praying) that after the next few chaotic weeks leading up until Christmas things will start to slow down and we can all find our groove again and some of that organization will seep back into my life.

Today for us was an early start (I don't do early mornings very well) so it is now on 10am and already we are bored. The little one was the only one that decided sleep was a good thing today so Sax and I did some Christmas card painting...

and when he got bored of that (we started with 10 cards, but only managed to get through 6, he's not the most patient child and I think my restlessness is rubbing off on him too) it was outside for some bubble blowing before it got too hot (yes Em he's still in his pj's ;P)
The courier just dropped off some goodies for me, aren't they cute (lots to reveal in the coming weeks)
Ok back to trying to get organized better go start some washing...

Have a happy day, Bel x

It's getting hot...

And I am not just talking about the weather! Wow 10 days without blogging thats gotta mean I have been busy. Last week went by in a blur and now another week closer to the BrisStyle market on Dec 5th and I really am starting to freak out

Although on a good note, it has been hot hot hot in my kitchen lately...

I have been working on something new for our next market stall - DIY Cookies - Yep thats right, its all ready to go (even comes with a wooden spoon) just add the wet ingredients (instuctions provided) and hey presto a yummy batch on chocy cookies ready to enjoy!I think these will make fantastic presents and all Saxon's Kindy teachers will be getting one this year (along with one of Jetta's Nest AMAZING Christmas cards ;)

We will have a limited number of these available on Dec 5th so if you are interested and would like to pre-book an order just send us an email or leave a comment on this blog and we will be in contact.

Also last week I had to privlidge of making some engagement cupcakes for the very talented Chris of LittleChrissy fame and her partner Damien. We went along to share a lovely afternoon in the park and partake in a sausage or two and a lovely time was had by all (especially Sax). It reminded me of just how much I love to bake and create and I will have some very exciting news to share in the coming weeks (just a little something that I have been working on, so stay tuned ;)
Hope you all have a great week and manage to keep cool

Take care, Bel x

Shadow Shot Sunday #55

We have all been busy at our house, and I really really really wanted to share a picture of the home my husband has been building, but due to confidentiality it is pretty tricky. But, he has given me permission to share his glass stairs, aren't they awesome :-)

What a clever husband I have, these stairs are truly amazing (not to mention the rest of the house) and don't they look magic like they are just levitating there!!

I have been working every opportunity i can to get some extra $$ together for christmas, so never a dull moment here.

We also had a visitor that we think sniffed out the chook's eggs today.. this photo truly doesnt do Anna justice, she was a whopper!!

take care and I will chat soon
internet on this laptop still sux

A Funny Week...

It's been a funny week around our place, well a should say a funny few weeks actually!

I was reading an email from a fellow BrisStyler who I hadn't heard from for a while and in it she was describing her life at the moment and after wards I thought, wow that totally sums up how I am feeling lately. It was something like this... "I feel like a duck, the view from above the water looks like I am gliding along all calm and in control yet underneath I am paddling like crazy and still don't feel like I am getting any where :( " Yep that's me at the moment! I have to just laugh or things really would be bad, so...

Just to round up our funny week, we had some funny socks to keep us entertained And a funny hat or two as well
Hopefully over the next few weeks I will find that balance I am constantly trying to achieve and things will start to calm down for us all. But for now I am just grateful, I have an amazing husband, two beautiful happy healthy little boys, I am surrounded by great friends and creative crafty inspiring people touch my life everyday!

Hugs those closest to you this week

Take care, Bel xox

p.s I will be back with that giveaway info but need to get some sleep now. Nite xx
