Happy weekend everyone ~

Well if you live in Canberra I'm sure you're feeling as waterlogged as me after seven days straight of rain and storms. It's lovely to have some wet weather following ten years of drought but this is beyond a joke and has definitely worn thin with me :o)

I'm here to show you a money wallet and gift card holder. Each is going to a different friend so it was okay to 'dress' them the same. Gorgeous Kid sat in the craft room with me earlier this week and we pottered about making some things together - a rarity for sure now that he's 10! He chose the c/s and dsp and even the button embellishment (I was so impressed). I did the cutting, he did the corner rounding and applied the SNAIL while I stuck it all together ... it was very much a joint effort and so much fun. I really enjoyed seeing his interest and enthusiasm in being a little creative with his old mum :o)

We used Choc Chip c/s, Holiday Treasures dsp (retired), misc buttons, Linen Thread, small Jewellery Tag Punch & the Tiny Tags Stamp set.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend - hopefully not all of you have developed webbed feet. Gorgeous Kid is away down at the Coast this weekend with a good friend of mine - hopefully they're enjoying some sunshine and beach weather.


  1. We are waterlogged in Sydney as well. The wallet's are a great idea, they look fantastic.

  2. How awesome! I'm very impressed with Gkid's ability to coordinate everything - he must get that from his mum :)
    These are very cute and such a great idea at Christmas time.

  3. Wow! You're blessed that your gorgeous kid loves to share what you do!! A great little set.

  4. Ooh, how lovely to spend time with your son. He did an amazing job!!! These are perfect gift ideas and I'm sure the recipients will love them.
    I hope you are starting to dry out down there, we have also had heaps of rainfall and I'm well and truly over it :)
