When we had our two wee Japanese boys staying with us, they bought us a whole load of gifts. And I mean a load. Half a suitcase in fact! Extremely generous, and amongst it all they gave us a lot of origami paper, which is just beautiful. I love paper, and kept some aside so I could do something crafty with it.
I thought these glass magnets were a pretty good idea.

I have also had this pattern for a while, and want to make this Kimono dress, which fits nicely with the Japanese theme, although to be honest it doesn't look much like a Kimono to me, but I just can't resist a vintage pattern. I don't seem to be able to muster the energy for much sewing lately. I'm either busy with family stuff, or when I have a moment I am so tired, that going near anything crafty is bad news, because any attempt at creativeness usually turns to custard really quickly only making me more frustrated. However, this only has two pieces so you would think even with chronic sleep deprivation, I could manage it.
Hmmm we shall see...!

5 plus a day?

Mr Busy and I attended the Vegetaball on Friday night. (Mr Busy is in the seed business). It was a good night, and nice to get all glammed up, and have a bit of a dance...

Along the wedding theme...

Pretty self explanatory really. Its hard to see the silver ribbon trim and wee crystal beads, but it did look quite pretty...

Look at all this....

I am so behind the eight ball here that it's not even funny. Ages ago, and I mean a fair way back now, I was lucky enough to win the *Jellybelly*jellybrain giveaway. It was the most adorable button necklace, which I am getting some very favourable comments on. It looks so darn cute, that I am lovin myself sick in it!!

But check this out, not only did Emma send me the giveaway, but a container load of other goodies.
The word overwhelmed springs to mind here:

I don't know how to thank Emma for her generosity, but I will try it by saying this

My baby is growed up....

Yep Senior Busy Daughter has turned 21. How do I feel. I don't know, but how can it be possible that I remember turning 21 like it was last week? Anyway Happy Birthday bub. And even though she has 3 younger siblings, she will always be my baby girl.
