Autumn April....

Kia ora koutou

....As always I have been a busy, creative big curly haired girl in this lovely autumn month of April  :)


Starting off on a sweet note, it was my son Xavier's 7th birthday on 22nd April, he asked me to make a birthday cake.  Though he was not sure what cake he wanted, he trusted me to make him a good birthday cake...Sheeshh, so the pressure was on, I ended up baking different yummy flavoured cupcakes - it was a hit with the birthday boy :)

A birthday cake of cupcakes, yummeh!
Orange chocolate chip, raspberry with raspberry sprinkles, coffee and walnut, vanilla with chocolate and chocolate chips....
Cupcake recipe and butter cream icing from my favourite book - Edmonds Sure To Rise Cookery Book :)


A Bit Of Sewing

Slowly but surely I'm changing my wardrobe out.  The goal is to make affordable beautiful dresses for myself, reflecting my style and passion. I have sewn a couple more dresses using the Vogue pattern  V8470 and of course I have altered it to suit my style and height deprivation, lol.

Ummm...

I had fun choosing different coloured fabric for the lining, this adds another element :)  
I am absolutely enjoying the whole process - from purchasing the fabric and pattern to adjusting the pattern to cutting  and sewing, and then putting the finished product on, success :) 
 Winner Winner, Chicken Dinner!



I finally finished embellishing my daughter's album I mentioned in my last post 'Unpause, Time To Get A Into G'.  I kept it simple and clean :)

I am proud to say (more like showoff, lol) - beauty and creativity runs in the family :)  My beautiful sister Latoya has created some brilliant crafty, short no-talking videos on You Tube called dAzL cRaFtS here are the links:  Cool Canvas Ideas!Pretty Orb Painting - check it out, really really cool, so proud of my sis :)



...What's Coming Up

Glentui here I come, yay!  Yes another scrapbooking/card-making/album crafting super crop weekend in Glentui at the end of this month , more sewing, crafting, baking and living. Since my birthday is just around the corner I have selected a song that I'm into at the mo and fits the brief, lol 

Thanks for having a look, hope you pop back to see what I'm up to next time :)

Can I simply just say what a relief to discover a person that truly understands what they are discussing on the
web. You actually know how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
A lot more people really need to look at this and understand this side
of the story. I was surprised that you are not more popular since you most certainly have the
gift.

Good day! I know this is kinda off topic however , I'd figured I'd
ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?

benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to send me an e-mail.
