We recently moved office at work and the new building has a lovely fresh feeling to it. There is lots of light, both natural and artificial and the walls are all panted in a very crisp fresh white with a fresh lime green as an accent colour. A few of the staff have indoor potted plants growing at their workstations, which add to the lovely feel of the space. I really wanted to have a plant of my own but there was one serious flaw in the idea, I kill plants! It’s not like I try to kill them or that I only kill sensitive plants, I genuinely kill any plant I look after! I was determined not to let this small flaw, ruin my plan and decided to think a little creatively. If I can’t keep live plants then artificial plants would have to do! I didn’t want to just get a plastic plant, I wanted something a little more lively, something with a little more soul. So, I thought I would make myself some flowers. I have the perfect blank wall next to my desk to display something sweet! (more…)

I hope you and your loved ones had a fantastic Christmas yesterday. I have been melting in the Queensland, Australian heat! I sure was dreaming of a white Christmas. But alas Santa didn’t make it snow in Brisbane this year 🙁
There isn’t much time after Christmas for recovering before New Years Eve rolls around. If you are hosting a New Years Eve party you only have a few days to take down all the Christmas decorations and dress the house in glitz and glam already to welcome in the New Year. Today I will show you a really easy and simple craft perfect for your New Years Eve celebrations.
In the past, I had lightly dabbled in paper crafts such as scrapbooking and card making. I had once attempted a horrible excuse of a scrapbook. It was so bad that just the shear memory of it makes me shudder in shame! I have had a lot more success with card making; some of them were quite great (if I do say so myself) and some of them not so much, although I don’t think any of them were as bad as the scrapbook. Argh, that scrapbook.
There isn’t much of a history of celebrating Halloween in Australia, however the Halloween fever is slowly spreading to this side of the pond. It has come a long way since it’s early UK heritage, these days the young children celebrating it wouldn’t be able to imagine the origins of their favorite sugar filled holiday.
When it comes to Halloween, there are two groups of people. There are those that love it and those that loath it. I suppose there is a third group of people; those that really just don’t care. Mr Hubby is in the last group but I do suspect that my yearly insistence on celebrating Halloween may cause him to learn to loath it, or if I’m lucky he may even learn to love it. Hey, a girl can dream can’t she?
