Diaper dream boat(bag)

Today, I bring you totally droolworthy diaper bags. I own my own JJ Cole bag (unfortunately bought mine before they brought out this fa - bu - lous one. ) I also convinced my husbands cousin to buy one for his wife (aren't I just the nicest family to have) and my brother also bought one for his wife. I should be showered in gifts by our dear friends at JJ-Cole!!!

My own diaper bag design is coming along nicely. I finally got a quote that i'm happy about, so I should be having pictures for you guys in a couple of months. I will be marketing my bags in sunny South Africa. Today South Africa, tomorrow, the rest of the world!!

be amazed. photo wednesday?

I know its not Friday yet, but I wanted to share this photo with you.
I feel my heart melting when I look at those toes. and i almost, almost get broody again.

update on the diaper bag: I went to see a manufacturer of beautiful leather bags. we really hit it off. It felt like he understood my vision. and what makes it so much better, is that it's local guy (smaller carbon footprint, you see...) i am awaiting a quote from him.

Recycled magazine paper rose ball turorial

It's here!! I promised didn't I?

I can't believe I've been lazy for a week after we got back from holiday. It was amazing, but much to short. Our little one loved the ocean, and we had perfect wheather!! A bit overcast in the early morning, but sunny during the day!!

I have another very good excuse for my absence. I've been dreaming up the perfect diaper bag. I'm going to see a manufacturer this morning to get a quote and see where and for how much I'm going to market it for. I'm really excited. It will be a while before I have an actual product to show you, but I promise to keep you updated.

And now, without further ado, the tutorial:

Photo Friday

I took this pic on Wednesday.

There is a tree close to my home that is covered in these lovely pink flowers! Amazing how beautiful things are when you stop (and pull over in this case) and look closer.
