My creative space.

The truth is, I'm meant to be on a bit of a self imposed creative break this week.

I'm trying to spend every available moment doing this,

and this, in preparation for the Lake House Producers' Day this Sunday.

But the girls are home from school, (they have dentist appointments later on), and they have been spending the morning playing with fabric scraps.

They have been working so nicely together to make a bus for Jazzy's rock family. Pepper has been supplying the soundtrack by singing 'the wheels on the bus' over and over all morning.

So what's a girl to do?

I just had to have another go at the silly billy dress!

I hope you are having a creative Thursday. To check out what the others are up to click on over to Kootoyoo.

  1. The rock family is ace! I'm thrilled you're revisiting the silly billy dress - I think it has loads of potential.

    PS: so glad the banana bread is a hit at your place. We love it here too.

  5. I suddenly have an irrational need (well, I am 38) to have a rock family happening in this neck of the woods. Seriously cool stuff (and I'm a bit envious if that is a meringue in the making)...

  6. Making cakes looks suitable creative to me ... and better yet you can eat it when it's finished. Now ... how to angle an invite or at the least a piece of the action! LOL

  7. Well it all looks VERY creative to me! You just give right in there Kate! You've got to grab these moments when you can right? Hmmm, might go and grab one now myself!

    Hope the dentist went ok ;)

  9. Why is it that whenever we don't have time, that's when the creative drive becomes completely impossible to ignore??

  14. You must adore creating yumminess in a harmonious home environment with your girls. I particularly love "the wheels on the bus" I much prefer that as a soundtrack to "Bob the builder......".

  18. Oh Kate - you are amazing! I would have ripped that silly billy dress to shreds in anger and frustration - you are a true inspiration! it is a gorgeous vintage sheet though, would be a shame to waste it. Bless your darling pepper for trying it on and even posing for the camera in it - what a lovely daughter you have. Also, I love her name!
    Thanks for leaving such a kind comment on my blog too, I'm ever so chuffed I left a good first impression on you! I've been reading your blog for ages and think you're quite a wonder woman *blushes*

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
