Heeeellloooo.... Suitcases!!

Okay, So I have a new obsession I think... Furniture made out of suitcases!! I was watching Better Homes and Gardens a few weeks ago and believe it or not the Crafty Lady had a good idea.
(Doesn't happen often, but it does happen)

So that got me thinking what other things could you do with suitcases?
Well here is the answer... Anything you can think of!

So I am now feeling super inspired, and I've been looking for a set of bedside tables for my bedroom (which already has a bit of a travel theme) So what better side tables then pieces of funky luggage!!?

Say it with words....

Saying something heartfelt doesn't always need to have an illustration to accompany it. I really enjoyed Typography when I was going through Tafe and I still love it now. There is nothing like a well designed sentiment thats comes from the heart...

Google does Charles Dickens

I got to work this morning to discover Googles new logo is celebrating Charles Dickens. I think this is one of my favourite Google logo designs.

Doesn't it look great!?

Charles Dickens was an English novelist.
Dickens's work has been highly praised for its realism, comedy, mastery of prose, unique personalities and concern for social reform.

What a handsome man!

Some of his Character that you may know, are Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim, Oliver twist, The Artful Dodger and many many more.

Banana Nut Muffins

I've joined They Draw and Cook, and this is the first recipe I have submitted...

These Muffins are absolutely delicious. You should definitely give them a go.

Frankfurt Fair 2012 - Christmas world and Paper world.

Hi All, Sorry I haven't posted much since my give-away, but I headed off to Frankfurt on a work trip for a week. But I'm back now and Im happy to report on my findings. Below is a very small sample of what was around this year.

In a nutshell it's... Retro and Vintage styles and icons, mushrooms and owls are still as big as ever. Lots of crafty bits 'n' pieces, raw white ceramics and an abundance of paper star lanterns. There is soooo much more and I wish I could share it all with you, but that would take me all night and I am still battling my jet-lag. So... nighty night. xo

Also a big hello and welcome to the bloggers that have joined Little Jackrabbits while I was away. :)
