jo + alex / married

Jo + Alex found each other at opposite ends of the globe. I just love it when that happens. I find it completely incredible that this world is so gigantic, yet so small, all at the same time. Love finds people when they are least expecting it. These two included. I'll tell their whole story, in pictures, very soon. Until then, here they are in moving pictures.

the colourful kemp family

The internet is such a weird and wonderful place. I have made some really wonderful friends since diving down the rabbit hole of blogging and then, Instagram.

I found Anna in tiny, little, colourful squares. I was drawn to her instantly. Mostly because she was (and still is) my ultimate style guru. But then she began to share her raw, honest, hilarious, profanity filled tales of being - in her own words - a baker's wife and mum of four on a colourful journey of recovery from anxiety, and loved her even more. She also writes for Geelong Advertiser's GT Magazine and is an ambassador for Beyond Blue. Did I mention SHE HAS FOUR KIDS. She is beautiful, brilliantly witty, brutally honest and swears like a sailor. Just my sort. She is every colour of the rainbow rolled together in a vivid ball of life - she is, Colour Me Anna.

Anna's beautiful family is merely an extension of her authentic, vibrant demeanour. A loud mash of love and truth.

I'll share the full stills collection of the Spurling+Kemp family soon.

ten on ten / november 2014

So the last two months of Ten on Ten are still sitting in my library.. you know this poor blog is going down the gurglar but I am determined to catch up and finish the year with a FULL SET. A job for tomorrow!

So lovely for a little change up with Nanna here. *smiles*

the craft corner / DIY felt crown

So the week got away from me last week and I totally forgot to let you know I was over at The Beetle Shack again for The Craft Corner! DIY felt crowns this month. This one is manageable, even for the beginner.

Some people who seemed scared of a needle and thread asked if you could glue it together - GASP! Kidding. If you love a bottle of craft glue more than needle and thread, knock yourself out. BUT.. you will still need to sew the elastic in.. I can't imagine glue would work for that bit - but I could be wrong. If you have success with the glued elastic, do let me know - it's good to be told when you're wrong!

Happy sewing! Or gluing..
