We're Growing a Pineapple!

Bella decided a while ago that we should grow a pineapple. So today i got a nice pineapple from the fruit shop.

I did some research google & i was suprised at how easy it is grow a pineapple! It's just going to be a LOOONNNGGG wait to get out pinapple, it takes 2-3yrs to grow 1......

If anyone has any tips on this growing pinapples thing or you have grown one before, please share your experience with me please???

Facebook's Handmade Gift Status for 2011

In January this year on facebook there was a status going around, saying that if you commented on the status that lovely person would send you something Handmade :-) Then in return I copied the status into page and then so on.....

So a lovely friend of mine Juanita commented saying she would love something Handmade - So as you can see it has taken me 9 months to make it but i am so happy with how it turned out and i hope that my friend loves it :-)

I made very simple christmas bunting, as you can see from the photo :-) Just Red and Green Material, Cream Bias Binding and for the lettering i just used a Fabric Pen and some Letter Stencils i had in my Scrapbooking stuff!! At both ends of the wording there is more plain red/green bunting flags.

Day 3- Organize-athon

Day 3

Well i feel fabulous and it was all thanks to a very small task - Organising My Kitchen Utensils!!!

It was very cleansing to empty out my 2 drawers and sort it all! I did however realise that i do 'acutally use' alot of utensils :-)

Can't wait to do Day 4!

Day 2 - Organize-athon

Day 2

Today's task was to clear out the hanging space in the wardrobe! For me this took alot more than 5 mins.......

But that's ok, as you can see by the photos my wardrobe really needed the attention.

Even if it was Mother's day i am really glad i spared the time to do it. (Also helped by putting a movie on the Bedroom TV and watching it as i went along sorting) (Also some dancing, i was watching Striptease) :-)

This Below is The After Shot :-)

(Sorry i have been having issues with positioning of photos, i wanted this one to come 2nd but the before shot is below.)

Day 1 - Organize-athon

I am committed to the Michelle Connolly 30-Day Organize-athon!!!

Day 1

Spend 5 minutes de-cluttering, dusting off photo frames and wipeing of the coffee table in the living area!

So i put on my Katy Perry CD, turned it up loud and had a clean up with a garbage bag in hand and went over my living area!

Feels fantastic, So i thought i would blog my 30 days. I am so amazed how 4 songs worth of being in 1 room cleaning felt.

So easy, i need to do it more often :-)

Can't wait to read Day 2's challenge!

My crafty planning begins....

So invitations are out, this party is happening :-) Bella is very excited about her cooking party celebrating her 7th birthday!

For the table they will eat at, i am making it very pretty :-) I have sewed up a table runner in the above purple material and purchased the other matching items!
Below is the water bottles that i covered with a pretty label! This is such a simple but effective thing to do for a party!

The next task is to sew up the aprons and work out the recipe instructions :-) I am having lots of fun planning for this party!

So out go the invitations......

Only 3 weeks till Bella's 7th Birthday Party. Ryan and Bella have to take turns on party years so this is her turn to have a party.

It's decided that this year will be a cooking party for her & 7 friends :-) (i have some lovely mummy helpers coming along too)

The inspiration for this party is coming from a lovely book by Annabel Karmel - Mummy & Me Cookbook.
Above is the photo of the cute invitations on wooden spooons. I created the cupcake shape and printed them on pretty papers. I am looking forward to hearing how Bella's friends liked the invitations. Bella is so excited about giving them out today to her friends :-)
I will blog more about the decorations and party food and games :-)
Have a great day!!
