Media: Soap World Magazine

Be sure to grab a copy of Soap World Magazine that goes on sale today (June 30) and flick to pages 58-59. There you will find a double page feature of MWWAH (Mums Who Work At Home) with Giggleberry Creations being one of them! Yay!

Yep - that's our logo and photo taken by the awesome Tea & Jam Photography you can see on the bottom of page 59 - how cool is that!?!
I haven't seen it in real life yet (thanks to Bec from Pretty Things Distract Me for the photo) but I have sent hubby to the newsagent on his lunch break to grab a copy... or 3!

I am thrilled with how all the banners came out - what do you think?

This chocolate and turquoise birthday party, styled by the very clever Sharnel, My Life My Loves blog, is just STUNNING and such a great colour scheme and theme for an 11 year old.

I was asked to make some custom bunting for this party in chocolate brown and turquoise polka dot & striped fabrics and just LOVE how they were used to decorate the grand house for party!

Thank you to Sharnel for sharing these pics! Take a look HERE for more gorgeous party photos.

Envelope is on the way...

How can you say no to joining in this fun little project? The Envelope Project - I couldn't!!

the envelope project

My decorated envelope (I actually got out the kids good old Crayola crayons for this one) is all sealed up with some little goodies inside and stamped ready to go in the post and head to Pip.

Have no idea what I am on about?? Check out the blog post with all the in's and out's HERE but the basic idea is... A bunch of people are sending a decorated envelope to Meet Me At Mike's in Victoria with some small trinkets inside... Pip will then collect up all the goodies from inside the envelopes and hang all the envelopes in the Meet Me At Mike's shop window... after the six weeks One VERY lucky envelope will be chosen from the bunch and that person will receive ALL the fabulous little things that were sent to Pip - Yay!

Just check out the things you could possibly receive if your envelope is the chosen one

Too fun!!

You might remember from HERE Kate asked me to make custom bunting to match the Sambelina Choo-Choo Train invites for her little guy's 3rd birthday party. The red and sky blue colour palette was so fun to work with for the banner and Kate did an AMAZING job on every little detail for the day!!

Bon Voyage!

Two of my close girlfriends are about to head off overseas! One is taking her first international holiday and heading round the words for a few weeks, the other friend is moving to Manchester for at least 12 months - lucky ducks!
On the weekend just gone a handful of our friends got together over a casual lunch to say Bon Voyage and wish them well. So I thought it would be a bit of fun to take along some yummy travel themed sweets.

I made some airplane and globe shaped cookies and also made a few cupcakes that I placed in wrappers I made from old atlas pages and poked in some cupcake toppers I made using THESE printable traveler's party circles. For a bit of extra fun I used my little girls mini suitcase to serve them in - very cute!
I had also spotted a little while ago some gorgeous sewn paper cards made with old atlas pages by Moonmum so grabbed one to write a little farewell note to each of the travelers.

The Traveler's printable party circles by Paper and Pigtails
Sewn Atlas Paper Cards by Moonmum
Mini Suitcase in green from Little Styles
Airplane and round/globe cookie cutters from Little Betsy Baker

It all went together so well and was a great talking point at the end of our meal.
