Happy Birthday to Me...

Some birthday goodies. Below are the fabulous pics from the 1930's paper doll cut out book. My sister bought this book and said there were also other books in the series from 1920's through to the 1980's.
So I'm one of those people who stretches their birthday out. Love the birthday and will happily celebrate all month given the chance. For my birthday I had a girl's weekend in Sydney with my sisters and nieces. I received some most excellent presents for the birthday, including a jigsaw(of the cutting kind), paper doll book and a quilting book.
Check out the fantastic paper doll outfits - Amazing!!
Ah, the peoples know me too well..... T'was fabulous and we capped it off with dinner at Billy Kwong's and a long linger at the LifeInStyle at Moore Park. I scoped out the kids section as I hope to exhibit there in the next few years. Lark and Friends was my favourite stall, but poppies for grace was also fab.
LifeInStyle kids section refreshment area. The tables and chairs were made of cardboard.
Very clever and very cool. Suprisingly the food was very good, not a hot dog/pluto pup in sight.In other news my article "Improv Crafting" is in this month's Mixtape, Issue 8. Justine has once again pulled out another corker of an issue and this time it is in full colour. So go get crafty people and pick yourself up a copy here.

Issue 8 features articles such as:
Roller Derby
Cupcake Revolution
Collections: Lunchboxes
Business Profile: Isy @ Incube8r
Blyth Dolls
Improv Crafting
Crafty Lady: Erin Harris
And a big thank you to Corrie from retromummy. She was my swap partner in imagingermonkey's fat quarter swap. Lucky me. Look at the fabulous stash she sent me.
Thanks Corrie. Now, how am I ever going to cut up that hedgehog and squirrel fabric?

Happy Birthday! I am very jealous of the jigsaw- been hankering after one of those myself.

A big happy birthday to you! And Billy Kwong's - nice going. I heard you just about have to give away your first born child to get a table there.
