A little Paul Kelly for Christmas, yes please! I am a fan, a huge fan as it happens and have his book on my Christmas wish list.
Thank you bloggie friends for following BOB & MABEL and commenting on my posts. I love this little community and you all continue to amaze and inspire me to create. For all of those people having a hard time this Christmas, my thoughts are with you and I hope 2011 is a much happier year.
Enjoy and have a lovely Christmas.I'll see you on the flip side!
Being the last minute shopper, sewer and organiser that I am I was up late Wednesday night making these little makeup bags for my girls teachers. They picked the fabric and I did the sewing. Included in the little package was a "Teachers survival kit" consisting of hand santiser, wipes, panadol, chocolate and alcohol. My girls didn't get it, the teachers did!!!!
For the little guys daycare teachers I'm going to copy Janina's idea from here.
I've been incredibly teary over the last week or so and I'm not really sure why. Maybe its because the girls have had such a great year at school and have had the best teachers. Next year it is the unknown, I don't know their teachers and we have to start fresh. It may also be because my big girl is turning 9 tomorrow and that's too close to 10!!!
I've been trying to figure out what to buy/make for the school teachers this year. There is nothing like leaving it to the last minute I say. In the past I have bought gorgeous Christmas decorations, chocolate, made gingerbread and other things. This year I think I'll be shopping here. They have free postage until midnight Dec 20th.
Blatant plug for BOB & MABEL but that's the way I'm rolling today!
Over the past 3 weeks or so I've been working away with Anna from Invite with Style to create a logo for my business. Its something I've wanted to do for a long time but was a little wary after a bad experience with a designer last year that got it so wrong. I saw an advertisement for Anna's business in an email from madeit and after contacting her felt that she was the woman for me...... the designer for me anyway!
She has been amazing. The 3 initial concepts were all just beautiful and I would have been happy with each of them. She really understood what I wanted and I could not be happier with the end result.
Hi. I'm Mandy and this is my little slice of life where I share my family life and my creative pursuits.
BOB & MABEL is the result of a creative itch that resurfaced after too many years ignored. After studying Fine Art and working as an Art/Photography/Welfare teacher I followed the path to motherhood. Since having No.3 I started playing with the growing mountains of vintage fabric and BOB & MABEL arrived!
