Whew... what a whirlwind year.  It's had more ups and downs than the average rollercoaster, yet here we are... only a couple of days out from Christmas, and ready to get cracking into 2013.
Time to give my poor neglected blog a bit more attention in 2013 I think!
I haven't had an entirely unproductive year though, I've gone back to full time work, and am juggling the challenge of working, parenting (my big girl is in grade 1 next year, and my baby is in pre-prep (kindergarten)... time flies!) and somehow squeezing in a bit of scrappy time as well...
Hopefully what we'll see in 2013 is a bit of exploration in creativity, with loads of quick cute projects - I've got my craftroom happening again, so i have no excuses!
I hope I'll see you around here in the coming months, thanks for still checking out my blog while I've been gallivanting around :)
Much Love to you all

Hi there everyone! Long time no see!
I have been flat out working over on the online store (at but have been feeling a little bit sad that I'd stopped sharing my makings with you guys too! 
Life at the moment, well, with my big girl being off to Prep now, and miss 2 1/2 all of a sudden deciding that she's "grown up" has been hectic to say the least! I haven't had nearly as much time as I'd like to spend creating stuff, but I did make a wedding cake this week (with the help of my sister!)
A family friend was getting married, and she wanted her wedding cake to be gluten free - no cake decorater in the area was able to do that.  So me and my big mouth stepped in...
It wasn't too bad though, we made a gluten free fruit cake, iced it in a layer of rum buttercream (seriously to die for!), and then topped it with a layer of satin ice - a new variety of fondant that tastes incredible, and is so easy to work with!
This is how it turned out!
(that's my sister in the green apron, I'm in the red)
here's the beautiful bride and groom....
and the cake at the reception. 
It wasn't perfect, but it was completely gluten and dairy free, and delicious!
