Christmas time!

This year instead of a traditional tree I've gone for twigs, which seem to be on trend as a few of my friends also have decorated branches! Mine were collected from my own backyard and painted white with just simple house paint. Known for being very colourful, I have gone for a pretty bright pallette this year which really stands out in contrast with the crisp white. The majority of my decorations were sourced from Big W.

A close up of the base of my twig 'tree', presents wrapped in white with colourful ribbons to continue the theme.

Home made xmas cards.

I used more white twigs to decorate above the doorway.

As we don't exactly have a conventional front door, my wreath is hung inside on a wall.
Hope you all had as much fun decorating as i did this xmas!

Designer window complete!

Here is my 'Designer' themed window display for college. I took my inspiration from peacocks and the outfit is just draped fabric held together only by pins, with a few peacock feathers placed to tie back in with the fabric. The mask appears in previous blog entries and is the only prop added to this display. Appologies for the photo quality!


At the moment I'm studying Visual Merchandising and am almost finished my first year. A big part of the course is learning to 'group' items based on theme, colour, style or just to fill a gap. Never one to miss an opportunity to put together lovely things, here are a few samples!

This mask was made as a prop for a recent window display,I was inspired by peacock colours and just can't go past a sprinkling of glitter!

My mask works well teamed with these vibrant blue orchids which were a gift from my beautiful boyfriend. Aaahhh!

Trying to come up with an image for a jewellery display, I played around with my own pieces and had to include a sweet fairy which suited the style and also cushions as a backdrop to reinforce the pretty pastel shades.

A close up!

This image became my final choice.

Please enjoy Xx

Card making

I made this card a little while ago for my dear friend to celebrate the birth of her lovely inspired me to make more!

The second page of the card for my friend.

A few more cards...I am really into patterned paper at the moment which provides a great backdrop to embelish.

Pretty pink rose scented cupcakes.

These were green for xmas.

Lovely lavender fairy cupcakes.

Vanilla butter cake.

Let them eat cake!

Baking is something I am becoming more and more passionate about. Not sure if it's my love of eating cake or the decorating part but either way it is the perfect hobby for me!
