Art Interactive

Yesterday I took the girls to GoMA's 21st Century Kids' exhibition.
If you live in Brisbane, you must visit.
So much colour!
And the artwork was accessible even for the very young.
It was great for/with the kids, but would be fun by yourself too.
Here is a sneak peak...

Choosing a ribbon from the wall of wishes.

India chose "I wish that I was a princess".
Elara chose "I wish that I could go to school everyday".
I chose "I wish that I had a nice garden".
And Elara picked one for Dad, "I wish that I was a famous cricket player"!

India worked on a white lego sailboat.

And Elara made "the most amazing tower ever".

Well, kind of ;)

Go on, get arty!

(And if you like the sound of mixing art and food, go here and see my sister's work published on the "They Draw and Cook" website!)

Sick day

But still so pretty.

Today's lesson brought to you by red velvet cake

If he looks rich, he is likely to be dense.
If he appears very smooth, he is probably lacking in depth.
If you are attracted by his boldness, you will probably be annoyed by the drama after the first date.

Or bite.

Not a fan.

Upside down cheesecake

How to:
Make up your favourite chilled cheesecake filling. (Mine is lime and palm sugar)
Scoop into glasses and chill for 3+ hours.
Process a packet of butternut snap biscuits and add enough melted butter to moisten.
Divide amongst glasses.
Chill for 10mins.
Top with whipped cream and something special (I add lime zest and a sprinkle of brown sugar).
Serve and enjoy!

Embrace the camera: baby food

I show him I love him with
and smiles.

But also by bathing him, changing him, and feeding him.
It's practical love!

Embracing the camera this week with Emily. Join us!

Dancing in pink

For a sweet girl.

Yes, I AM a sewer.

Though lately I haven't had much to show!
I do have some of these shorts which I call my 'panel van pants' for boys.
I love making these.
I will be making some for the etsy shop too!

Cake Pops

Well, they are hardly Bakerella standard, but:
1. It was my first attempt;
2. I live in a hot, humid climate, and decided to make these in the middle of summer. The butter melts too quickly, the icing/frosting melts too quickly, and the chocolate does all sorts of unplanned things; and
3. I didn't bother with following a recipe because I made them on a whim.

Still delicious. Still ball shaped. Still pop-ish.
Hey, that's ok with me.

Princess 5

God made me who I'm meant to be
He loves me just the way I am
His dream for me is so amazing

My God watches over me
I feel like royalty
And for this simple reason
I am happy to be me

Lyrics are "Royalty" by Hillsong

Boy days foods...
...watching cricket...
...getting stuck... with toys...
(and making all the ladies want more babies)

Embrace the camera: Fail day

That title says it all really.
A teething child. A misbehaving child. A tired child.
But a cuddle with India improved it.
And thanks to a quick photo, in ten years time, I'll only remember a happy day.

Go on... embrace the camera with me (and others)!
