FREEBIE: 'Bon Appetit' cutlery tags { Part One } | July 27, 2012

As you probably have figured out, I love details. I'm a consummate 'details' nerd.

Some might say that attaching a tag to your dinner party guest's cutlery that wishes them 'bon appetit'  is gratuitous nonsense. I, on the other hand, live for this stuff.

You know you do too.

Continue to download your freebie and for information on your nearest 'details freak' support group.

Blank | March 27, 2012

Boxes, gift tags, and labels...oh my. I feel like a kid in a candy store browsing through this online shop full of colourful paper goodies. If you love getting creative when it comes to gift packaging, you'll adore "Blank".  (Oh, and it's based in Australia too!)

In particular, I'm loving these 'blank' wooden eggs. Gorgeous Easter gifts!

DIY Paper Popsicle Memory Game | August 22, 2011

As a kid I adored the game 'Memory'. The truth is, I still do. Sure, it's not exactly what you would define as 'challenging' but there's something charming about it's simplicity. So, for a bit of cute fun I decided to re-create the game with a slight twist. I've replaced the cards with paper popsicles. Who doesn't love popsicles, right?

Scatter these at a summer ice-cream social, bbq or picnic for a bit of interactive fun for guests!

  • Simón Coll Umbrella Chocolates from 'The Department' ( a new and interesting concept store) in Prahran
  • Glitter hat from Woolworths (pick up some munchies while you're there) in Kew
  • Felt balls from The Colour Lab ( lots of pretty colourful things ) in Prahran
  • Happy Birthday candles from Daiso ( could spend hours in this cute japanese store. everything is $2.80! ) in Westfield Doncaster.

Free "Let's Picnic!" Invitations | July 25, 2011

I'd firstly like to apologise to fellow Aussies for my obvious neglect of their 'seasonal' interests in recent times.  It is probably clear, upon viewing my last couple of projects, that I am a touch pre-occupied indulging in fantasies of the summertime. Please forgive me, I find that this helps me get through the cold winter months!

So, for those currently blessed with beautiful weather and thinking of enjoying a lovely picnic or two, I'm hoping that these little invites I've designed will come in handy!

DIY Rustic Wedding Table Numbers | March 29, 2011

I recently bought a set of wood coasters from Carina Sherlock in Armadale.  It struck me that they would look beautiful transformed into wedding table number signs for a rustic style wedding.

I thought they would look especially good when combined with a set of nature-inspired numbers I had recently illustrated.

After some research I discovered that I could use Lazertran decal transfer paper to transfer the numbers onto the wood surface and successfully create the table number signs I had imagined!

Continue to download this set of illustrated numbers and to get instructions on how to transfer them onto wood coasters.
