What little boys like

I just finished whipping up a batch of 'cards for little boys'. It was a recent order from a client, Megan Kate Tregilgas, who owns a charming little shop in Willoughby, Sydney.

I was all smiles when I first visited her store. It's so colourful 'n' pretty. The shop holds an eclectic mix of accessories, stationery, gifts, homeware, baby 'n' kids stuff - you just have to see it for yourself. Most of the products are exclusively crafted by artists around Australia. You'll find The Craft Angel's handmade creations on the shelves too :-) So if you live in Sydney, or if you're visiting, do drop in at the Megan Kate Emporium in Willoughby where some cute 'n' interesting purchase is a sure find :-)                                                               Like this adorable little giraffe we picked up for our little bun in the oven :-)

Okay, so about the cards for little boys...I was immediately thinking of dinosaurs, space crafts and robots :-) And Megan also suggested a 'farm animals theme', which works great for children's cards. So here are some cards I made -

I didn't make any with the space or robot theme. But I did have fun making these simple yet cute cards with a set of super cute graphics -

So much fun! You can see I clearly get very excited about crafting :-)

I think I'll end this post here, after the heavy overload of pictures!
Back soon with more projects.
Until then, happy crafting!

A Bout of Crafting!

Here I am again! Considering the slow trickle of posts, I can see how I might have given you all the impression of me being a lazy, uncommitted and inconsistent blogger. Well, it's not all wrong...part of it is true. However, (excuses, excuses) there is a reason for my sluggish behaviour though and it's a sweet little reason :-)
Here are some cards I made recently, now let's see if you can guess 'the' reason -

Yes! Our little bundle of joy will be here in September!

The mommy-to-be-ride hasn't been all fun. Nasty nausea took over the first trimester, that clearly meant no crafting activities :( The second trimester was a soothing relief. The joy of pregnancy actually kicked in - the glow, feeling special, the works :-) And now, in my third trimester, I'm constantly exhausted! But I do enjoy spending time crafting. It soothes me and keeps me occupied so I don't go white with anxiety about the coming times. All in all, pregnancy is beautiful! I'm now looking forward to meeting our little girl. I can already imagine bonding with her on those crafty afternoons :-)

Happy crafting!
