my creative space


This week has seen a little last minute making...


some rainbow felt bunting to decorate a favourite colleague's baby shower, made late at night while the "bring a plate" was cooking... thank you to Lupin for the lovely, colourful felt (trust me, it is colourful! It's a little hard to take photos at night when 2/3 of the light bulbs have blown!),


and a toy / laundry bag whipped up to help her carry the baby shower loot home.


We also made a bit of mess yesterday - while "making" lamingtons (from bought cake, just adding the icing and coconut).


We made some which actually looked like lamingtons (if a little variable in size, after attempting to cut a round cake into cubes!), and some which...

well they still tasted yum!

Lamingtons, yum!!! You know, I've thought about making them from shop-bought cake before! Such a simple & easy idea and then you get to make the fun messy bit at home!!!

I've been meaning to make laundry bags for my kiddies for far too long. Maybe because it's such a simple task it just doesn't seem to interest me, but you've inspired me to get them done. Yours looks great!! Love lamingtons too =)

I'm loving the bunting, and the lamington's look delicious! that is my kind of cooking baking. And I'm not big on beautiful food, I mean it all tastes the same, your tummy doesn't know the difference.

Oooh, I don't know what lamingtons are but they do look rather yummy! I'll have to google them.

Your gifts are both so thoughtful and cute! I don't know what lamingtons are either but if they're sweet I know I'd love them
