WOWEEE!!!

I joined up for the Sassy Apron Swap earlier on in the year thinking that it would be loads of fun to make an apron for someone and even loads more fun receiving one from someone else that loves to craft just as much as me.... I was so surprised when I collected the post this morning.... Yep, that's right, a lovely big package from the USA.... I could barely contain myself from squealing with excitement!!!! In all of my wildest dreams I never imagined that my apron could look anything like this..... Or this......Yes that's right, it's reversible!!! So I really got 2 aprons, what a bonus!!!! Adrienne you're a genius!!!!! She even threw in a matching tea towel, a bottle of tabasco sauce and a divine recipe for some bloody Mary's that I just can't wait to try.... The theme to her apron was naughty but nice...... The apron that I've designed for my partner is very vintage, well I hope that's what my partner thinks anyway.... I'll post some picks once she receives it....

Here's a little skirt I whipped up for the little princess the other day..... Not a very good shot, I know!!!!! If anyone has any toddler photo taking advice I'd love to hear it... LOL!!

Take Care.... :)

  9. Lovely aprons, it was fun being part of the swap. I guess toddlers are easy to photograph when they are sleeping, and they look angelic!

  14. love the apron - lucky you.
    my photo advice would be to take them whilst they are asleep! it's still a good shot though - i love those 'artistic' ones and i love the skirt you made.

  16. gorgeous apron - very racy! I can imagine a 50's housewife with a cocktail in hand waiting for her husband to walk in the door!

    Toddlers: My toddler is my etsy model and I have learned that I have to be super fast, take loads of shots (so you may end up with one OK one) and have the Wiggles on the TV just behind where I am taking the shots...
