Friendship Bracelets

One of the big come backs this year in fashion is the friendship bracelet! And who doesn't feel good when you finish one of those. Well here is an awesome website for some very funky bracelets along with a heap of other cool stuff and lots of DIY's.
Head over to Honestly WTF to find these.
Even if you've never done them before the step by step photos are very easy to understand.

Sonny Boy

Photo overkill maybe but here's few pics of my beautiful Sonny. He was 2 months this week and it's flying by, but I could never imagine life without him.

Our first night.

 Having a giggle with his sis.

 3 weeks old.

 Chillin with the boys.

Smiles make me melt!
And he smells soooo good!

Recycled Phone Holder.

Here is a great idea to keep things a bit more orderly, plus it's recycling. Gotta love that.
I found this over at How About Orange
Use any cardboard you have lying around.

Silver Bug.

I made this cute little bug for my neice Silver. Hope she likes it!

This looks amazing. I'm going to have to try this one. A very simple process for a unique effect. You can find the full tutorial over at She Knows Living. Go check it out!

Veggie Patch

This is the herb side, finally I have a heap of coriander. Usually I can't grow it, no idea why but now that I have so much I can't eat it because it must affect my milk and gives Sonny a sore tummy.
 Broad beans and rocket

 And Jimmy with a turnip. I have SO many turnips because I had a packet of seeds and had no idea what they were and they looked like my other radish seeds so I planted a few lines of them. I checked them a month or more ago and when I pulled them out there was nothing there. So I just left them there and lucky I did, now what to make with so many turnips.

I really do have way to many things on my to-do list. I have so many cut out patterns ready to sew and I just can't find the time to do the sewing part.
A big pile is these

I really like them and think they spunk up any outfit and keep you nice and warm too.
I got the inspiration when I found the brown wool fabric, now I just want to keep making them. :)
