BDAY BLITZ





This week it was Brooke's birthday. We just had a mellow one inviting our gorgeous neighbors over for a bbq dinner. Their 6 year old daughter who is the raddest little girl around, wanted to make Brooke a birthday card. Who would buy a birthday card when you can create the most amazing card using glitter pens, sequins, bows and lace from the craft box? I forgot how fun glitter pens were and as we were sitting there creating our masterpieces I thought for a minute that I was 6 years old too! Needless to say, they were a huge hit and Brooke was feeling pretty special.

INDIAN-MANIA

I wish I could find the site where I spotted this amazing vintage indian fabric to see if they had any more versions of it! The colours are awesome and I'm loving that mane of a head dress!

ZEN ME OUT



There's nothing like a good crystal to sink your eyes into, let the days stresses melt away and think of all the magical fairy land creatures that are waiting to play...wow, I really have been watching too many episodes of In The Night Garden....

TSUNAMI SURFIN'



Brooke pushed Ace into his first wave the other day. He loves getting pushed into waves and climbs onto anything he can to lay down and wait for a wave to come along...boogie boards, surfboards, eski lids....As one of my girlfriend's mum put it, "that boy has no fear....I feel for his mother" Its true, he fell of his last wave, tumbled around in the white wash for what felt like 5 hours (more like 2 seconds) and got up laughing. I'm telling you, this little dude is not afraid. When I was painting our house a couple of weeks ago, I left the 6ft ladder standing in the middle of the living room, I went into my bedroom for less than one minute, came out to find Ace at the very top of the ladder banging the red bit on the top. Yes, the TOP of the ladder.
I am considering a monkey backpack that secures your toddler to you. No, seriously.....
