Putting it out there!

Yesterday i was at the op shop and i asked the girls there if there were any suitcases. I need one to take to the snow with our ski gear in it. I wasnt concerned with the condition as they are to go in the back of the ute, and will get thrown about a bit.

Today i go to the op shop, and what do you know, not one, but two suitcases, so perfect for what i needed. $3 each.

also while i was there, i got a teletubbies and a Kipper video, benny being really into teletubbies, and tom liking Kipper,.. 50c each. A bath mat, $2 perhaps from memory, and a long sleeved collared shirt for $2.

also with the material that i bought from the Salvos a few weeks ago, so far i have lined a bag with it, made a skirt, and then this headband, which is permanently on my head at the moment. obviously my hair needs a trim if its annoying me. I just love these colours.

what ive been up to

Its been nearly a month since ive updated my blog.

I have been a bit sidetracked with crafting lately, particularly with Jo starting up Monday Craft again. My rules for crafting are though that i cant buy any material new, not that i could afford it anyway, but all material has to come from either the op shop or from existing material that i have.

Tom is desperate for a camera, so he decided to make one! It even has a slot for a memory card

I wish i had taken a picture of the shirt before i chopped it up, but here are the pants that i am making. The material flower things were on the front of the shirt, and i just cut them off, and re=sewed them on.

Cute eh

and here is tom with his Blues Clues apron he was deseperate to make, and the baking that followed.
