.....to us, from us, with lots of love!

every year we do a "from us ,to us with love" present!  this year we got a cool clock! it was obviously a xmas gift to someone 54 years ago, that's quite amazing, still has it's little box and everything and it works perfectly! I love it and at R25 we definitely didn't blow the budget!!

..... cat's out of the bag

these are part of the range of designs we registered. they were supposed to be the new release at design indaba in feb next year, unfortunately one of the crafters we work with decided he could sell them , so i suppose the cat's out of the bag.....an opportunity to come up with something new?

..... a little something for my boy

cute and functional, would definitely go along way towards keeping all ryan's books tidy next to his bed! such a little bookworm.....so glad he loves to read.....

he would love this bookmark.....smarty pants thinks he's very cool now that he knows most of the scientific names for the bones in his body, i am quite scared, he's only twelve! will have to stay on my toes!

..... cardboard chair for jac

admittedly not the best but jac got a new chair for his next "home". i am sooooooooo impatient so the fact that it made it to this stage is an absolute miracle.....

.....funked up matt boards.....

decided to ditch the boring matt board for once and replace it with vintage record sleeves! just add your pic to the round opening and voila! think it funks up this black and white nicely.....
