Autumn Essentials List

My husband and I were just saying today how packing up our family into 6 suitcases and moving to New Zealand for a year has been the best thing for us (you can read more about it here). Having much less stuff has forced me think very much in terms of essentials. I’m not only talking […]

Rainbow Leaves Tradition

This has become a traditional thing for the kids and I to do as the leaves begin to change, early in Autumn. It always amazes me, even when I think there’s not much colour in the leaves, how many colours we find! Just take a look!  It’s such a simple, grounding and beautiful activity to do. Head […]

Famous Painting Colouring Pages

I searched around the net to find the best famous painting colouring pages.  I set this up as an after school activity one day. I simply printed out the colouring pages, did a collage of corresponding famous paintings and cut them out.  I found a heap of great ones over at Super Coloring here and I picked […]

Nest Cupcakes

I’m not flash with cake decorating. Let’s just say this: I make the cake part of the birthday cakes in this family, but my husband usually does the decorating because he’s far more precise and patient than I am.  But this is simple and easy! Fun for Easter, baby showers or birthdays. This is a […]

Plastic Egg Faces

Plastic Easter eggs are such useful things. They are great for Easter Egg Hunts (reuse them every year), glow in the dark Easter game and craft. One idea is to make cute egg faces. Wool, googly eyes and a permanent marker does the trick. Or just draw with permanent marker. More Easter Craft Ideas

If your looking for a jar full of cuteness this Easter, keep reading as I show you how to create the tiniest  Bunny Miniature Terrarium ever made (well by me anyway!).

Beautiful Mother’s Day Gift: Your Child’s Handwriting on a Necklace

I’ve been a fan of Uberkate since 2010 when I first discovered Kate Sutton’s work. Kate’s designs foster a deep sense of emotion because it’s all about carrying the ones you love close to you. Over the years, I’ve following Uberkate closely and there’s something new I wanted to share with you. It’s called Your Script, and essentially, Kate […]

Fun Play Jar

I’m working on an article (for another website) about chocolate-free (or minimising chocolate) Easter ideas and one is to make a fun play jar. Take anywhere! These are easy to put together and cost about $20. These are great for: Birthday Parties – make smaller ones for party favours or do up one as a […]

Disney Characters in Regular Clothes

Pauline (who blogs over at Punziella) is a Disney-lover in her 20’s, and she draws very cool stuff. Like these popular Disney characters in regular clothes. I asked Pauline about her love for Disney, her favourite chapter to draw and where she finds her inspiration. Great inspiration for budding artists.   Why do you love Disney […]

Wholemeal Pizza Base (2 ingredients)

Hi again! Last week I posted a recipe for a vegemite & cheese pull apart and wanted to show you how versatile that dough recipe can be. I have used the same dough but instead used wholemeal flour and turned a pull-apart loaf into mini pizzas. They are great for a snack or lunch box […]

Cath Johnsen caught up with Lachy this week and learnt about his love for Emma, life in the Wiggles, and their newly […]

Easter Chick Houses

I didn’t get around to making our yearly gingerbread house last Christmas. I missed the personal challenge of balancing the walls and roof to prevent a culinary tragedy. I even missed scraping the cement-like icing off my kitchen bench! If you’ve ever made a gingerbread house, you’ll know exactly what I mean.   So now that […]
