Work, work and more work...

but it's all good! I've been toying with the idea of offering more graphic design services in my web design business for a while now, and I'm excited to announce that I've finally done it!

Instyle Web Design is now taking orders for facebook page designs, blog headers, invitations and announcements, etsy & madeit banners, logos, business cards and heaps more. Head on over to our Instyle Web Design facebook page if you're interested, I'd love you to 'like' me! LOL, sounds funny, doesn't it! Our services are listed on the "Pricelist" tab. I'd love to hear from you!

I'm also in the process of updating our website to offer online payment options and changing the design in line with our new identity design. Check it out soon!

Sewing mad!

Wow. How long has it been since I last posted! Thanks to Miriam over at BubbaChenille for helping get my butt into gear ;) Check out her gorgeous chenille giveaway while you're there. I've never sewn with chenille (in fact I don't sew much at all), but I'm willing to give anything a go!

Speaking of sewing, I actually made a little gift for a friend's gorgeous boy who turned one on Saturday. I couldn't resist these cute fabrics, (and a few more!) lol
About six months ago, I was fortunate to win a gift voucher at Handmade Heaven, and I used it to buy a gorgeous handmade car racetrack travel roll. I've never seen anything like it before, and I immediately fell in love. My son loves playing with it, especially on long car trips, and it's so small and easy to pack up and take anywhere. So, I decided to try my hand at making one myself. Apart from the continuous bias binding, it was heaps of fun to make! I'd love to credit the original designer, however I'm not sure who it was. If anyone knows who makes these gorgeous tracks for Handmade Heaven, I'd love to hear from you so I can refer my friends!

My machine's getting quite a workout lately, and today I spent the day with a gorgeous friend sewing kindy sheets. WOW! Who would've thought it would take 3 hours to make one sheet set! Man! I learnt lots though, how NOT to sew sheet bags, and how to unpick real fast! Lots of laughs though and that's the most important thing! ;) Still have to sew about a thousand hand towels and a few more sheet sets, but now we've got the hang of it, should only take about an hour each!
