stamp art is cool

when i was little, my nanna had a huge wooden box filled with trays and trays of rubber stamps. my little sister and i would spend hours creating stamp art.

in the latest frankie there was a small blurb about these love inspired rubber stamps that come in this super cute wooden box from notemaker.

i think they would be a gorgeous addition to envelopes and letters. what a lovely way to tell the people in your life that you love them :)

then i went searching on etsy and found these alphabet stamps from karaku..

gorgeous huh?

the expression of self

the number of fashion blogs out there in the world wide web is rather staggering. this causes me a great deal of procrastination and distraction much to my hisbands delight (he cannot understand why i am looking at other people lives instead of packing up my house into boxes... go figure). i have got to say that this french blog i stumbled across the other day is one of my favourites. i just love the simplicity yet creativity of these outfits. and i am having some serious hair envy!

in another plus - a lot of the clothing seems to come from chain stores which i appreciate as a broke and nearly homeless student!!
oh betty - you make me smile..

winter holidays..

okay so i use the term holidays VERY loosely as i am working nearly full time hours. BUT it does mean no more prac and no assignments for 6 weeks so im thankful for the small blessings. and it also means that i will have more time to tick things off my 'to do' list.
so far it looks like this.

*learn to sew
*watch french movies
*cook yummy vegetable soups
*sell clothes on ebay
*go walking in the bush
*watch the 'new moon' trailer over and over and over
*drink good coffee
*beat my little brother at wii
*plan our next holiday
*find more vintage shoes
*watch the first season of 'packed to the rafters'
*finish our wedding album

i'll keep you posted on any progress made to this list :)

p.s. what i would REALLY love to do is go to new zealand to test out my new snow suit but it doesnt look like that will be happening anytime soon - so its soup and sewing for now!!
