Let the juggling commence...

So, the kids break up today for the summer holidays. Every parent is an entertainer, industrial cleaner, referee, therapist, personal shopper, detective (I am really good at hunting down odd smells, missing loom bands and finding the hair gel thief), cook, event manager, nurse, health and safety officer and that's just to name a few of the roles we take on plus we have to work. Over the summer hols all the roles are required ALL DAY EVERY DAY FOR SEVEN WEEKS! Good luck to all the mums and dads out there covering the hollies. I do dread the juggle but we do manage to have fun (honest) plus no morning rush - yey!

I recently worked on this FABULOUS project for Homemaker Magazine (issue 21 published this week by Aceville). Once the design had been selected from my sketches, I had to create the pattern for the dog shape and then design the print that would decorate him as well. I then needed to fit all the decorated pattern pieces onto one fabric piece (the reader then cuts them out and stitches them together). It was tricky but phew, I did it, and was super excited to see he has made front cover of Homemaker Magazine - yey! Pop out and get your copy today and you too could make and own this mutt.

A Crafty Birthday

It's one of my crafty friends birthday soon - it's a BIG birthday. Her family are making her a book full of memories, words and art. To send her our best wishes and love our crafty group have made little labels to stick in the book. The first two are mine - had really great fun making them.

Afternoon tea anyone?

My son made these cakes in sweet little silicone cup shapes cases, he spent ages making the little flags too.  Cute hey?

Armchair Glastonbury 2014

Arcade Fire looked fab. at Glastonbury this year. They and their shows are such a creative force (take a look at RĂ©gine Chassagne reflektor dress in this video - stunning). It would  have been fabulous to  have trotten the muddy path to Glasto but the good old BBC did us proud with tons of coverage on three channels. You don't get the same atmosphere I know but and you can stay warm and dry sitting on a comfy sofa.

Gifts for a special teacher

Copyright Infusion Home 2014

It's getting to that time again when your kids start asking what can they buy their teacher? I think Mr Mullet (yes, that is his name and no, he doesn't have a mullet hairstyle) would probably prefer a bottle of wine (or three) but my kids always want to take chocolates in. Teachers must get so many chocolates so you could buy this mug I designed instead - from good gift shops NOW!
