This unique beauty I designed for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex after the fantastic news which broke during their Royal Tour of Australia 2018, and is traveling to Kensington palace by plane.

It's always exciting to hear that a couple are expecting a child, and you reminisce about the daunting things you felt about becoming a parent for the first time, mostly feeling joy for the happy couple. Everyone you talk to is an expert on the subject and you find yourself becoming public property, so to speak LOL!

I wanted to give a subtle nod to Meghan with stars and stripes fabric as well as Harry's HRH.

My husband said he thought it neede...

Long before a retailer developed a set of star wars bedroom furniture i had started planning my son's BIG BOY bedroom of the same theme. My creativity would evolve around a millennium falcon bedspread that i had bought on-line three years ago that had a hand applique look, and yes, i could of made it myself but by the time i'd finish it Dash would be a teenager LOL!

My search for items to use took me to KMART where i saw a round shelf that would be perfect to turn into my first piece of STAR WARS decor for my son's room

Items needed:

1 x round shelf

1 x can of grey spray paint 

1 x sheet of ply wood

1 x tube of silver paint

1 x bla...

Although we see the hot air balloons almost everyday, it's always a treat to see more than the regular amount in the air during the Balloon Fiesta in the Hunter Valley. Grabbing my camera and toddler in arms we drove 20 seconds down the road to see them land at one of their preferential landing sites in Old North Road.

Day 3 of the 4 day fiesta 

When i first moved to the Valley over 13 years ago we went up in a Balloon Aloft flight for our wedding anniversary, and since then we've always loved seeing them floating over the area we live in.

When i first saw the full baby mobiles of mini hot air balloons on Pinterest back in 2015, i...

With my lounge room looking a little worn and tired from toddler wear, i thought it was high time to plan a little make over with a lick of paint and some accent furnishings. 

I set a small budget and a moderate time span to shop for bargins and ideas, but with no luck. 

Then one day i saw an advert for Spoonflower, fabric / wallpapers and gift wrap, and my search 🔍 came up trumps, i had always wanted some outlander tartan from another website but they didn't ship to Australia unlike spoonflower.

It was a little expensive but i thought I'd order small and if the quality was good i could always order more. I used the fabric sparingl...

On Saturday the 30th Sept 2017 - Balloon Aloft hosted their first NIGHT GLOW event at Roche Estate (formally Tempus Two) in the Hunter Valley vineyards.

We didn't know what to expect being a first time event, but we hope that this event will now become a regular annual family outing, the ticketed event was completely SOLD OUT on-line and at the gate and everyone was in a happy mood.

We had a great night and positive feedback for my mobiles, sales spoke volumes for the love of my 100% handmade room décor mobiles.

At this years Gourmet Pallette the school have asked me if i'd be interested in giving a demo during the Spring Fair, to which i replied YES!

I've modelled some Harry Potter items to promote the event and will be crafting objects out of sugar for an hour on the day (TBA)

All of my room decor mobiles are completely unique and boutique, please note i will not copy any other designs on-line, i will make my own mobiles of similar colors but will not make an identical replica of any other company's product.

How does the ordering process work for a custom order ?

Firstly, please note that we can only take custom orders through own website and NOT Ebay.

a) because they don't allow me to make sales outside of their website

b) because they don't allow me to take a deposit

c) because once the mobile is finished I have to publically list it and hope that the person who ordered it is the first person to buy it...
