Meet Hootie...

I can admit that I have a little Owl obsession ...
But that's ok!

This here is Hootie!
My first little owl... Welcome to the family Hootie!
You will be much loved!
Until my kids somehow manage to pull the stuffing out of you!


Hootie is made from scraps of material and felt, 2 random buttons and his stuffing is an old pillow I was going to throw out! So if you have an old pillow and some material laying around ... be excited!
I have more EASY patterns and idea's coming!

Again, I'll have this pattern up soon!

Choc Chip Oreo Cookies

A close friend of mine gave this recipe to me ....
I love her....

Chocolate Chip Oreo Cookies


135g Butter (or 1 stick of butter OR 1/2 cup butter)

6 tbsp Brown Sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp Vanilla
1 1/4 Cup SR Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 Salt

Cream butter & Sugar
Add egg & Vanilla
Combine in a bowl flour, Soda and Salt

Easter Idea's

I made this cute little bunny ...
She is meant to be holding an Easter Egg ...
though I hold no responsibility of the where a bout's of that egg!

Very simple!
And when I can find it, I will add the instructions to this post!
You will need some calico, wadding (old pillow), Pen, pretty material, sewing machine and there is some hand sewing included ... but again, its all easy!


My sister and her family visited us recently and she bought me these CUTE as wooden Easter eggs to hang on the tree she palmed off to me at Christmas!

Gotta love sisters...
I love mine!

Easter Cake Pops

I sat up last night until 1.30am making 40 cake pops for my daughter to take to school for her class.....

I'm not sure if I'm feeling SO TIRED that I'm moving onto hysterical laughter or if it's the amount of left over chocolate I managed to shove down my throat !!!

either way ... ENJOY!

1 Chocolate Cake, Cook to directions - lick the bowl
Crumble cake into smithereens
Mix in approx. 1/2 cup of (made) chocolate icing sugar
Mix like you have never mixed before - lick the spoon
Roll into balls - lick hands
Stick in the freezer until hard ... much easier working with hard balls! Ummm ok
Melt 1.5 blocks of milk chocolate - eat remaining .5
By this stage you will be pretty wired... so have a drink of milk!
Stick your stick in and dip in chocolate, a spoon helps!
Drain off excess and dip in annoying 100's & 1000's
Feel free to lick the spoon again - because you now have to pick up all the 100's & 1000's off the floor you just spilt!
Sit on baking tray with baking paper - do NOT bake!
Place in fridge to set - tie bows around sticks or just skip that bit and eat!

To the parents - Enjoy your wired little kid for the beginning of the school holidays!
no no ... don't thank me! ANYTIME!

The "Pillowcase" Dress

Last night I made Rylie this "Pillowcase Dress"!
It's Teddy Bear & Purple day at school and she didn't have anything to wear!
Not to worry... Mummy will save the day!

Of course she had to have a matching hair accessory and Teddy a matching scarf!

Not too bad for a 50c pillow case from an op-shop, some material by "Heidi Grace Designs" from a SUPER sweet gal in California and some crocheted flowers and old buttons in the button tin!

{Sunbeam Stamps} - Temple Marriage Card

This card was fun to make! Now if only someone was getting married!
I used pieces out of my scrap box for this one, so telling you what paper I used is a little tricky!
But basically some card stock, patterned paper, pink ribbon, 2 black brads, black ink square, Vellum, Kaiser Rub on which I used my NEW favorite Quickie Glue Pen on and some unreal black "Superfine Glitter" by Celebrations of Australia!

If you don't have a Quickie Glue Pen or some Superfine Glitter.... go get some!
