Domestic Diva

I made quite a few sales on Etsy last week, so I bought myself this necklace.

This is how I feel today, although I have been a Domestic Diva, I have been baking flat out to help out some friends. I love baking so that's ok!

Here is my latest published scrapbooking page, (Scrapbook Creations, all materials used are from Craft Queen) it's all about baking too! Sorry about the wonky photo!Thanks for visiting! Leah

A funny photo

If you click on that awful photo of me here you might learn a bit more about me! Don't forget to read about the other Craft Queen Design Team girls too! I don't have any scrapping to show as we had a very sad weekend, our close friends suffered a huge loss on Saturday, we are still in shock. Bye for now. Leah

Jack started his transition into primary school yesterday. He is wearing Harry's old uniform I haven't bought him his own yet. I imagine he will grow even more before Feburary. He had a great day, but it makes me feel sad! Hope that you are enjoying your week! Leah

My little model

I made some of these headbands last week and sold most of them over the weekend, after spending so long trying to get good photos of them! There is one green patch in our drought stricken yard and I won't let Danny cut it because it's great for photos!
I keep forgetting to mention that I have a layout in Scrapbook Creations this month, I must post a pic here for you and submit some more pages! I haven't submitted for such a long time! Jack has his first orientation at school in the morning, I just can't imagine him in his uniform going of to school! Bye, Leah

not sure!

Have you ever seen a chenille bedspread like this?? I bought it at an op shop, not looking closely, when I got it home and unwrapped it I was so surprised at the picture in the middle. I'm not sure that I should cut it up to sew with now. Do you think that it could be rare or even valuable?? We will draw our winner for the latest giveaway tonight, the boys were asleep before I had a chance last night. Hope that you are having a lovely day! Leah

I've donated!

$10.00 right here I know that's not much ,but it might help a little! I sold $100.00 worth of pink chenille items during the month of October, not too bad for a busy mum! My sister and I donated $20.00 each at the lovely "pink" night that we attended on the weekend too. Jack says he loved the pink "laminations" that I bought home! Toby will be 3 soon and he is looking for his birthday everywhere, under the cushions on the couch, under the computer desk, funny, I don't quite understand why he thinks he might find it! Sorry I haven't got a pic today but you can see my latest scrap booking here. Thanks for dropping in! Leah

a sneak peek

I will be calculating my 10% of proceeds from my "pink" sales during October, tonight so that I can make my donation to the Jane Mcgrath foundation asap. Thanks for dropping in! Leah

I'm addicted to Op Shopping!

I made this bib today and was taking it to give to my niece to wear for some advertising, but I looked at Grace in her cute little red and white top ( $1.00 from the op shop last week) and decided that since we were going to the hairdressers and out for lunch that we should advertise ourselves, sorry Miss A! We visited an Op shop today and got a bag full of pillow cases a table cloth and some very cute doilies all for $4.oo. I have so many ideas, and hardly ever went near an op shop in the past, now I can't keep away, I need another storage room! Thanks for stopping by! Leah

Another giveaway

Hi, I've been making some of these, using another stamp from Craft Queen, the link is right there in my sidebar. I will give away this set of 6 if you leave me a comment at the end of this post, I'd love to give away larger items but I have been keeping them so small due to the expensive international postage! Harry will draw a name from his hat again next Tuesday night. Thanks for dropping in! Leah

Thinking about Christmas!

Do you like this card? the stamp is from Craft Queen, one of the goodies I bought at paperific. We had another craft stall on the weekend, which was fun, and busy with our 4 kids! Jack sells some of his eggs and parsley from our garden, he makes at least $20.00 each time, pretty good for a 5 year old! His little chickens are growing really quickly too. Thanks for dropping in!
