Good News, Bad News?


Hi!! How are you all?! Oh I have missed you all!! So what do you want, good or bad?


I'm going with good news first.

Sew it together was awesome. I don't have words or as pictures to describe how incredible it was hanging out with such amazing chicks. I think once I get 'back on line' I will pinch some peeps pictures and tell you about some of my new bff ;)

Now for the bad news....
 
While I was in Melbourne, we had a kitchen fire. Everyone is ok! Thank god! But my house......not so much. We are in temporary accommodation for at least the next 4 weeks. Hence why I am blogging for the first time in nearly 2 weeks. So I'm blogging from macca's and hopefully will be back on line with mobile internet thingy soon. I can read emails with my still broken phone but am not so good a replying. Bit tricky with such a small screen ;) 
 
And just because I told the lovely ladies at sew it I would post pictures.

Kitchen :( 
Black smoke everywhere but the bed rooms :( Including all over some quilts, fabric, stock etc. And it doesn't want to come out :'(.....

Sorry about the quality. The pic were taken with my iphone.
So. That's that then. I must run now and drive the 1/2 hour to school for pick up and then 1/2 'home'. 2 hours in the car every day. GREAT!! xox

Happy Mothers Day!!

I hope all you mum's out there have had a wonderful day! 

Hubby is at work so no breakie in bed for me but my mum is visiting!! Has been a lovely day. I made roast beef for lunch with salad and cold roast meat for tea. Mum has helped out with the kids, although I'm still on pooy nappy duty, and is more than happy to clean. In fact the first day she was here she cleaned the girls room....I don't even go in there.....scary place!! And she has since done my pantry and there is not one piece of clothing not put away. Never happens!! 

So thanks mum! You are a star and not just because you are a cleaning machine but because you are amazing and I love you! xox

I made this last night for mum...


A Junior Ranger bag, mum style!


Senior Ranger bag? Mmmm no!


Big enough for her drinker, phone, wallet and glasses case. 


With gorgeous Saffron Craig on the front! I love it! And so does she! xox

Introducing Junior Ranger Bags!

Ta-da!






I am so excited about these bags!! 
My kids love exploring outside. Especially at this time of year. Dry season has well and truly started here :) And they are forever taking their drawing things outside and loosing it or not bring them back in. So I've designed a bag to keep their drawing things under control (I hope!) while they enjoy being outside!


Included are double ended pencils and 2 handmade notebooks!


Of course it needed some where to hold a drink. And one thing that drives me mad is the kids not closing their drinkers properly and then chucking it in their bag only to leak all through it!! Not fun!
So they have internal elastic drink bottle holder!!



Stretchy enough for big or small drinker! Yay!
As you can see there is a pocket and plenty of room for snacks, hat and sunscreen! 

Oh and a fully adjustable strap! Because it is frustrating 'exploring' up the street and having the Junior Ranger not want to carry their bag any more. So now you can carry for them without looking like a dork! Plus as they grow the bag will grow with them. 

Of course you don't need to be a Junior Ranger. Any child would love to have a cute bag to store their things in while on the go.

So that's what I've been working on! And in the not too distance I will have some other new things for the shop to show you! Yay!

If you'd like more info or to buy one email me or check out my madeit shop xox

Facebook

Yep. I caved. Bianca Jae Makes Stuff now has a facebook page. Please pop over and 'fan' me or 'like' me or whatever it is you young people do these days. I'm seriously a nana parading around as a 30 years old mother of 4. I like elastic waisted jeans. I hate Nintendo DS. I'm more than happy to lock the kids outside for the day so they get plenty of 'fresh air'. 
So off you go....go on, you know you want too ;) Plus if you all go over there, well, I might reward one of you. Or not. I'm pretty crappy at give away's. And if I bang on over there, I'll bang on less here about shop stuff. Which would be good because it would....I'll stop talking now xox

Actually, one more thing, if the linky doesn't work, try the button on the side bar :)
