From my creative space this week....

Magic spray from Homemade Home. It's so refreshing and calming. Everybody needs a bottle. I brought some airplane sized spray bottles, just perfect to have for spritzing on a hot or stressed child (or adult).
Cup cakes for lunches and afternoon tea. Really awesome recipe in the Sunday Star Times this week by Annabel Langbein.
A pencil roll for Chrissy's best friend Sophie who turned 16 this week.
A refashioned t-shirt, using Kate's dot-to-dot method. I just cut of the existing neck band, did the dot-to-dot thing and put bias binding on. The t-shirt has been transformed. I also cut off the length, and zigzaged the edge pulling the fabric tight to make it go wobbly (sorry don't know the technical term!)
From a boxy, ugly shirt, to one I can wear any time!

Still to come this week...
 some bunting out of black fabric with white stars for the boy's birthday on Sunday.
 a hem on a dress I'm making much much shorter (and much more suitable)
 a crochet snake (by request) also for the boy's birthday on Sunday.
