Stills: A Weekly Collection {the crafty edition}









1. One snap from a shoot with a fancy food stylist. I'll share some details asap.
2. Give this boy an empty box and he will whip it into a treasure chest in no time at all.
3. Oh the glory
4. Zeph and Pip spent many an hour in the Rainy Day Room over the weekend.
5. Mum and Dad had the kids on Friday so Dave and I could empty the junk out of the office- we have a baby arriving in a few weeks and it needs a place to sleep. There is still so much to do, like scrub that filthy floor!
6. They came home with easter cup cakes that they made with their nanny.
7. Reflection
8. Autumn light on the dragon palm

Did you get much crafting done this weekend? We did much less than I expected, preferring to spend our time outdoors.... umm.. okay, I preferred to spend most of mine in bed- helloooo 2 hour nap each day, you are awesome.

Either way, If you have craft focused posts in your archives, feel free to link them in addition to your Stills Collection. It's all in the name of World Kids Colouring Day, a warm up for the event in Early May.

In other exciting news, tomorrow is the 1st of April- time for a new artist in the Artist Series- it's a good one, I promise!

  1. I've been enjoying 2 hour naps over this long weekend too and don't have a pregnancy to blame it on! Apart form the cleaning and scrubbing dirty floors, enjoy setting up your Bumps bedroom! How exciting!

  6. I love the imaginations of little ones, coming up with wonderful creations, their lives so full of adventures. I do love those naps, you so need them this close to the end of your pregnancy it is so tiring especially with two little ones to look after too.

  14. No crafting for us, just lots of eating, easter egg hunting, and perhaps a couch nap or two. They're so hard to resist on a Saturday afternoon with a full bely!!!

    Also, can I say that I'm kind of in love with your office chair???

  16. I so wanted to buy that office chair a year ago when Freedom was selling it, but my boyfriend at the time voted against it. Now we aren't together anymore! I *so* should have bought it anyway!! Great photos as always Em xx

  21. Hi Em,

    I love peeking inside your colourful house.

    I didn't do stills this week, but I've added a rather monotone crafty-ish link.

  24. Love Zeph's creativity. Do you craft with the kids at the kitchen table? Do you put anything over it to protect it?

    Can't believe bump Beetleshack will be here so very soon. Eeek! So exciting!

  25. Love your photos Em! They look so warm and wonderful - I want me some of those little corner shelves! And I love the Castle logo - delicious and fun. We have a dragon tree too - but it's surrounded by a hedge and behind a carport and impossible to get out. My fiance loves this tree, but if I could I would sell it in a heartbeat - and use the money for our ensuite renovation, or get new floors :)
