I Heart Japan

- I Heart Japan -

Hello there! Just a quick one as I have HEAPS of work to get done before the day is through.

I love Kokeshi Dolls, Geishas and Japan so it may come as no surprise that I have done another Kokeshi design! I previously posted a Kokeshi design I did for work. It was so much fun I decided to create another but directed more for kids. I think it turned out rather cute but not sure if I have finished it. I will have to sit and think about it for a bit. Is anyone else like this?

So back to work for me. For everyone in Melbourne I hope you are making the most of the beautiful 34°C day outside. Beach weather! :D

Monsieur Turtleton

I needed something motivational and inspirational for my studio. It's part of my whole 'making my life happier, anxiety-free and colourful ' resolution. I was thinking along the lines of a clever slogan or insightful quote as that is quite on trend at the moment. I have never been good with words... actually I take that back, I am pretty awesome at making up kids songs on the spot. I even managed to impress my Mister the other day after belting out a tune I pulled from thin air. So if everything else fails I maybe able to get a spot on Playschool. Anyway where was i going with all of this...ahh that's right... I managed a little print with my little Monsieur Turtleton. Okay so it's not quite insightful but it is FUN!

Ok. Relax. Breath. So I am working pretty hard here to write this post! I have a little munchkin who has just started crawling/bunny hopping and it is none stop! If she isn't kicking at the library ladder, crumpling my beautiful cartridge paper, chewing on Daddy's computer cables, eating my favourite recipe; she is trying to get at my ornaments, find the stairs or empty the waste paper basket.
At the top of my 'To Do List' this week is 1. Baby proof the home.  But not everything can be baby proof.

I am lucky that my little munchie-face sleeps at night but the pay off is (and I know I wouldn't want it the other way round) is that she doesn't sleep much during the day. This makes getting any work done very hard. I just need an extra hour in the morning and an hour in the arvo to work without feeling like I'm neglecting her.

So for all you Mummys working from home out there - any suggestions of how to occupy a 6 month old, so you can get a little work done? I am very interested to hear what the rest of you do :D

Signing off to get a little work/play/entertaining/multi-tasking done! LOL Happy Monday lovelies!! xo

Up, Up and Away...

- Up, Up and Away... -
Happy Weekend Everyone :D It couldn't come round quick enough for me, I need the break! I have been busy working and looking after a baby who is getting top teeth and just started crawling - it's been HECTIC! To top it off I have a cold - damn you sickness!

I'm trying to finish off Skyla's Nursery. She is 6 months now so I really need to get a move on before she becomes a teenager! The only thing left to do is the artwork and hang the other bits'n'bobs around her room. I have collected frames in different styles and sizes which I have sprayed white, so it is just a matter of filling them. Easier said than done and I am so indecisive.

I have made another version of 'Up, up and Away...' so it ties in with her quilt and cushion in her nursery. I will be using these materials for a couple of other prints too. "Up, Up and Away..." is in my Etsy shop along with a few other prints which is rather EXCITING!!! YES my ETSY is open for business again - HOORAH! Over the next couple of weeks I will be continuing to add items for sale :D xox
xx Skyla 6 months xx
