in an attempt to help the overwhelming exhaustion that's been plaguing me in recent weeks, i ventured to brighton beach yesterday with shane and my sister-in-law for a few blissful hours of lazing in the sun, snorkelling over starfish, anemones and the odd beer can, and seeking out all tiny or especially beautiful shells. ...sigh... nice. it's been far too long since i was at the beach.
it was a busy little weekend in my shop as well, with 5 oobees now currently in transit to their new homes in canada, the UK and right here in australia after a trip to the post office this morning. it makes me so excited every time i get notice that something has sold - i really, really love it! and although selling makes me want to get into the craft room and MAKE MORE, MUST MAKE MORE, i've decided to take this week off crafting to concentrate on my buddy's website. i've been procrastinating on it for too long so i'm going to really dedicate some time every night this week with the reward of a full-day sewfest planned for sunday. i have about 5 oobees cut out and ready to sew, most out of fabulously patterned vintage cotton, and i can't wait to see them all finished up with wee faces. cute.
and, without further ado, here's a wee monday blog treat, just one this time 'cause i'm still pretty tired...

this is one of my very favourite new (to me) blogs, i absolutely love the writing style and brilliant craft work displayed. just realized that i don't actually know the author's name but she's pretty clever, all the same. oh wow, rhyming. i am tired - just go over for a visit already!
