Inspired: The Block Hotel Room Challenge

Super excited about the new series of The Block!

Here is a concept board showing what I would have done for the first challenge - a hotel room on a budget.

Navy, Mustard, Scandinavian & Graphic.  

Add a full wall of sheer curtains, some great strip lighting and a dropped ceiling and I think the room would have looked fab!

New House

Today we're doing some work on the new house.

You may remember the old house that Izzy and I worked on a while back - well it was so popular that it was ripped apart many times and finally beyond repair, so it was time for a new house!

Now trying to do this with a 2 year old Izzy is much harder than with a 1 year old Izzy! The attention span is just not there! So it is taking a LONG time!

Anyway here's a few piccys of the house and the recipie for the glue we made :). Sophie even woke up to join in the fun!

Mix 1 cup plain flour, 1/3 cup sugar & 1 1/2 cup water in a saucepan to make a smooth paste. Add 1 tsp vinegar and heat over medium heat until it thickens. (try to keep stirring or else you'll end up with chunky glue like us!). Whack it in a jar and da-da! Glue. Edible glue. Enjoy!!!

Work & Play

After 7 months at home I am just a little excited to be back at work!  I have missed the creativity :) 

Today I spent a good half hour looking at ideas for a kids games room, and I'm now wondering how I can create one of these beautiful, whimsical play areas for my own girls!

(Is it ironic that I need to get back to work to get excited about playing?!)
