I've been preparing for a creative fest ................

and deciding on colour

for this ole girl

with beautiful handles

and maybe a mosaic top

of technicolour

and hanging prints from my mum
and kid friendly craft

and storing essentials

and sorting pretties

and loving my new transport
(did I mention we own a bike shop?)
and hanging to use my new (old) machine
to create lots of lovelies!
But in the meantime  .....
I am stuck in the cupboard
(yes literally)
knee-deep in paper work!
This was a walk in wardrobe in a previous life
now its my 1.4m x 2.6m office
(notice anything? there is no window grrhhhh)
I am itching to get out into the sewing room but my current priority is bookwork for my "other" business (the one that puts food on the table!)
After an 18 month break, I am back to my old antics keeping the business end of our bike shop going!  Paying bills, reconciling bank accounts, running errands, paying staff, doing the GST and general organisational shenanigans!
Am I happy about it? - no not really (if the truth be know)
but alas,
I am a Company Director and a Company Director needs to do what needs to be done!
I am hoping with all my heart I can sort it all out, and get into a fabulous routine of 2 days per week at the office (well in the closet) and 3 days of sewing gorgeous frockery.
But my life is NEVER that organised so we will see.
As usual I promised I'd catch up on every ones blogs and in grand "Dee" style my plan flew out the window, so forgive me wont you.
I am hoping like hell my next post will be full of pictures of gorgeous dresses in a fest of floral delights to tantalize your eyes!
(but honeys, dont hold your breath)
Till then,
Dee xox


  1. Your bike is fabulous. You must look super cool riding around town on it. That set of drawers will look wonderful painted a bright colour with a mosaic top. It's a shame you're having to do bookwork again but you gotta do what you gotta do.

  2. Good luck with the paperwork! Then you can play.....:) x

  3. Paper work is always a drag but hopefully your soon be organised you have a huge incentive playing with your gorgeous fabrics and making dresses and transforming that unit i cant wait to see how that turns out the colours and those tiles are beautiful. Good luck with everything, dee x

  4. I can't wait to see that chest of drawers converted into something brilliant!
    I hate paperwork, that god for a house-trained man! x

  5. I am dying to see what that dresser will look like the colors are fab and the tiles even cooler. I have a window in my office and I keep the blinds closed is that bad? I get too easily distracted but in the summertime it is a must, light = life. I hope you sort it all out soon. I think it's really cool you guys have a bike shop!

  6. OOOO, those drawers! the handls! Your bicycle! The wallpaper! the fabric!!!
    Ugh, anything to do with beaurocracy gives me the SHITS!
    How awesome to own a bike shop, though! You just need someone to do the boring stuff so you can do the AWESOME stuff!

  7. That chest of drawers is a beauty, gorgeous shape and lovely handles.
    Look at those fab suitcases and all your stunning fabric... What a shame that The Proper Job is keeping you away from your sewing, but IO guess the family needs to eat...
    Don't work TOO hard, Dee! xxxx
