The Winners Are...

It's been such a hectic week! Apologies for not getting back to you all sooner, I've just been swamped down with work so much that I haven't had time to dedicate to my softies creation.

So I really enjoyed old and new friends popping over and saying "hi" in the last creative space, it's nice to meet new fellow crafters and learn something new about people, I love that! I had so many dilemmas trying to decide which new home I would give my mouses to, I don't like the fact that I might be neglecting someone who could enjoy them as much as I do. Therefore, I have decided to give the mouses to all of you who dropped by last week to say "hi"! Yes you heard it right.

So the new mouses will go to these lovely new homes:
  • Amanda I hope your 5 month old bub will enjoy Mouse 4.
  • Steph and Carlos, I love the fact that your whole family would be able to share Mouse 4! I hope your kids enjoy the latest member to your family.
  • Little Grubs, honest is the best policy and you've shown that. I hope you enjoy Mouse 1 and start to discover the wonderful world of softies!
  • Helmitarha I love a fellow beader! It would be so special to deliver Mouse 3 all the way to Finland to you, enjoy!
  • Marley, Mouse 1 is coming your way, enjoy!
  • This Photographers Life, I love Colour Me Katie too :) Mouse 1 is on it's way to you!
  • Kellie, the wonderful thing about softies is that they're so colourful that it suits boys and girls. I hope your boys will be able to love Mouse 2 as much as I do!

I am in the process of bringing the mouses to life! I will contact you all via email to get the details for delivery. They will be delivered to you all within the next two weeks! I would love to hear what name you've given them once you received them.

Little Grubs and Marley, can you please email me with your details as I am unable to contact you.

I will post pics of the lovely mouses soon on my blog, keep tuned in!

My Creative Space

Last week I promised, so this week I'm delivering.

Sooo...did you guess what it was? drum roll...a cat? a dog? a teddy? tadahhh...it's a mouse!

Meet Macey the Mouse.
Bio: I love cheese, cheddar cheese, feta cheese, ricotta cheese, cheeseburgers, yumm!
Height: I'm big enough to cuddle!
Hobbies: I like to tease the occasional cat, meowwww...

I love creating softies, but the thing I love more is enjoying the excitement and expressions when someone receives one of my softies! The great thing about softies is that there's no right or wrong. For example: Macey can be green, yellow, brown, have orange ears and red arms, it doesn't matter how different she is, she is unique.

So getting down to the give away! This week I have four mouses (or mice) to give away, I am being a bit sneaky again because I want to keep the excitement mood alive! The four mouses are below, it's a sneak peek, once the winners have been chosen I'll post the finished mouses next week in my creative space. Normally I give all my softies names, but this time I am calling them Mouse 1 to 4 so I will leave the naming of the mouses to their new owners!

MOUSE 1

MOUSE 2

MOUSE 3

MOUSE 4
It's quite easy, leave a note to my post, you choose how much or little you want to write. I would like to know:
1. A little about who you are? I love meeting new fellow crafters!
2. Who you would like to receive the softie for? Don't be ashamed if it's for yourself, who said adults can't enjoy softies!
3. Which mouse you would like to receive.

I'll announce the winners next week in my creative space and then the mouses will be on their way to their new homes. If you know other people who love softies or mouses/mices, let them know so they can pop along and say 'hi' and have a bit of fun!

On another note, you can find more inspiring creative spaces at Kristy's.

What's held in my hands

This is my favourite photo of the few I took today. I have an obsession with taking pictures of things held in my palms. I don't know why, it just looks so inviting.

Today I can offer you a Persimmon.

The more photos I take, the more I fall in love with my camera.

I am also spending my long weekend off working on my surprise softies! Hope everyone is enjoying their long weekend off!

My Creative Space

It's that time of the week again, welcome to My Creative Space. Soo, what did I do this week? I've been working...you know as you do, on a little something...a little something special!

As much as I love to create and make, I love to give! This week I am working on a little surprise. I've been designing a new softie, I can only give you a sneak peek! Don't pull your hair out trying to figure out what it is, all will be revealed next week! AND I will be giving it away.

Stay tuned to this space to see what and how?


On the other front, I have been enjoying a few things this week, we'll actually 10 things!
1. I am overly excited that I stalked the Ticketek site to get my MUSE tickets, Dec 14th I can't wait!
2. I am so happy I discovered today that the Sri Lankan restaurant across the road to my work has the most yummiest fish buns! you must try fish buns! yumm go fish buns!
3. I feel quite guilty yet again after I indulged myself in a bunch of lovely new fabrics at the Spotlight 20% off fabrics sale, DWOH!
4. I am in love with my new "thinking" song. It's a song called 'Ten Thousand Lines' by Electric President.
5. I attended the Digital Life Expo last weekend, which is all about photography. I got to try out a Nikon 3S with a 300mm, 400mm, 500mm, 600mm lens! It was amazing! At one point I would have held about $15,000 of equipment in my hands, scary!
6. I'm sorry but I love sticky date pudding with vanilla ice-cream, it's official.
7. My mother is very interested in where all my softies have disappeared to. 'Mum, they've gone to a place where they will bring smiles to faces".
8. I love boots, is that the new trend for this season? because I see every women wearing them! I especially love my indie boot below!
9. I am more conscious of how much I have returned to my bad habit lately, bitting my nails, yuck!
10. I am currently in the city of Melbourne's annoying sibling, Sydney :)

My State of Mind

This photo pretty much sums up my state of mind right now....

We learn to "live" life to the fullest.
We "work" to stay grounded and supported.
We "create" to inspire.


Most of all we don't take anything in life for granted, but at times we have to look at things and learn to take it with a grain of salt, otherwise we would never see the better side of life...

Electric President

This song is the song I absolutely enjoy listening to whilst I am working this week. It's a song called 'Ten Thousand Lines" by Electric President. I like this band, very much.
Just close your eyes and listen to this song and then you will know what I mean....
Sometimes we just need a song to trigger off our imagination, this is my song.

Passion Pit

I am crazy about this Band and song right now, I just love their unique sound so much. It reminds me a little of MGMT. I can not wait to see them live in August! Their two shows are totally sold out, I can understand why.

Passion Pit - To Kingdom Come.

15 Things

So I've just realised, I've been posting stuff up for a while now, but you don't really know me. So let's get acquainted...

15 things I like, dislike, do and don't.

1. I love cupcakes, even though I sometimes find them too adorable to eat.
2. I like taking pictures of things up close where the background blurs and all you see is the subject, the real beauty.
3. I dislike flying, it makes me claustrophobic because I feel like I am losing my personal space.
4. I am in love with the Aussie band 'The Temper Trap'. I wished they would take me on tour with them, I don't mind being a groupie for a day or two…
5. I like making softies because I feel like it's a time where I get to be that 5 year old girl again who wished she had a cabbage patch doll when everyone else had one.
6. I don't like mean people, that goes without saying…
7. I wish i was 10-20 cms taller, then I can wear jeans that fit without alterations! argghh…
8. I'm sorry but I can watch 'The Notebook' over and over again 100 hundred times and never fall out of love with Ryan Gosling, I mean who can?
9. I believe the line "Don't Believe The Hype" should make a reappearance just for sake of the iPad…come on now, who wants a HUGE iPhone?10. I am mad about Modcloth, they have pretty dresses. I don't wear dresses much, I am such a tomboy, but I can't resist stalking their site every hour to see new pretty dresses.
11. I love my dogs, they are my babies until I have real babies. They don't judge me, they love unconditionally and most importantly the obey ;)
12. I dislike my short memory, it's so annoying…err sorry what were we talking about again?
13. If I could live the life of someone for a day it would be...drum roll please...taadah…Wynona Ryder in 'Little Women'. I still love that movie until this day.
14. I loved Sex and the City, but I don't know if I can stand watching the sequel to the movie. Carrie should have ended up with Aiden, not MR BIG! arrghh...
15. I can't believe I resorted to ebay last night to buy 'Passion Pit' concert tickets, that just shows how desperate I am..SOMETIMES!

So now that we're acquainted, feel free to leave a comment about 15 things about you. I would like to know who you are!

My Creative Space

This week has been extremely busy, I can't begin to tell you how many moments of "stop and take a deep breathe" I've encountered. I really wish I had more time to dedicate entirely to making my imaginative creatures come to life, but with reality, we're always short of time!

This week I only had time to bring one softie to life, my hippo.

Name: Alice
Height: 35 cms
Hobbies: I like to bath all day long and graze on grass, umm what else did you expect from a hippo?
Bio: I have an obsession with being clean!


I started to make Alice her male companion, Alfred. He's slowly coming to life.



I started to draw again, don't ask me who or what this is, it was just a moment of doodling.
