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.
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
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.

We had a great night and positive feedback for my mobiles, sales spoke volumes for the love of my 100% handmade room décor mobiles.
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...
I recently WON the 1st prize at the St.Phillips Christian College "Gourmet Palette" spring fair cake competition, it was the first time they had the Gourmet Palette added to their spring fair by all accounts.
I had originally made the cake just to enter the competition because a friend of mine was on the committee to drum up applications for the show and I thought I'd lend my support, I had pre-planned a cake design in my head for my son's 1st birthday cake but the competition deadline was way before his birthday, so I was fully prepared to make 2 different cakes, but at the last minute I decided to use this one instead, I just ha...
