I have gone for a more muted blue/grey and red theme, rather than the bright green. I also found that the little birdie on my old header was actually a logo associated with Twitter (it was a free download template so they probably just knicked it and put it on the green back ground). Anyway, I am not really a fan of Twitter so I had been yearning to get rid of it. My heading font needs some work but thats a little puzzle for me to solve another time. As I said, I have been wasting toooo much time.

Here is my very rough very first attempt at doll making. I already knew what my boy was going to say when he first saw it, and I was right..."It's Jemima, Mummy!". So, Miss Jemima it is.
This picture hides 1000 faults. Things I like about her are her decent body and head size, so she is easily cuddled under one arm, and she sits up well, no saggy bits. I don't like her too skinny legs, her lack of a neck, the way her hair grows mullet like down into the back of her dress and her pigtails look like her Mickey Mouse Club ears have slipped down to an odd place.
Some improvements to be made to be sure.
Next to her is the original Jemima doll, from the ABC Playschool program (Australian children's television for those not in the know), just for a little comparison fun.

Today I went to the Mathilda's Market at the Brisbane Town Hall. I had a good time and met a few folks. There was a lot of products available for baby girls, and I don't have a little baby anymore, and I don't have a girl...there were attempts to offer products for boys but I found most of them just too cutesy for a nearly three year old. There was one lovely stall selling knitted jumpers for boys - called Motley Monkeys. I had a nice chat to Kylie at the stall and bought a stripey jumper for my boy - it looks really fantastic on him so money well spent I think.
I was also impressed by the toys on offer at Honey Bunch. Very professionally made and displayed, much my style of things and extremely cute to boot.

I purchased a blue domino pendant with little white flowers from Emma at Up In Annie's Room and wore blue tops all weekend just so I could wear the pendant (totally LOVE it). And bought myself a subscription to Peppermint Magazine and a copy of Mixtape zine. Got home, popped the little one into bed and sat down with coffee and two great reads. What a great day.
