These are the things I do to keep me busy (ha ha, not that I'm not busy enough). When I'm not in the kitchen, I'm in the sewing room or the garage. I'm the one in the family that uses the power tools (shhh, don't tell my husband). I love upholstery and painting and all sorts of things so in order to inspire you I'm sharing them here.

Lounge Chairs

I bought these chairs on TradeMe ages ago. It was always my intention to re-upholster them but I just didn't get to it last year.

A Partridge in a Pear Tree

Bought this really cute fabric at Spotlight yesterday. It's actually Christmas fabric but as it's non-traditional colours I've decided I can use it all year round (sshh - don't tell anyone).

I have been wanting to do this for such a long time. I finally got the time, money and help of a husband to get it done.

Home Made Laundry Powder

I have been using this laundry powder for about 6 months now and have been really surprised by the results from a homemade product. It's easy to make, if your kids can use the food processor they can do it.
