I've made a batch of Easter bark - no peppermint and a sprinkling of candy coated chocolate eggs, I've also made a few Easter bouquets for preschool and school teachers too. They look so nice as a center piece on my table it's a shame to gift them away!
I've got a bunch of stuff to share with you dear readers, including a very exciting product review and giveaway! Yes! I've been working on quite a few other things but I'll have to wait a wee bit longer till they can be shared.
I wish you a safe and happy Easter!

I'm happy to report that I have one very happy four year old, nestled in bed, snuggled down and totally in love with his "rainbow" blanket! Perfect timing too, seems that the weather is finally cooling down, after the Summer that never ended.

Now to another giveaway! Remember this stool I made over with maps? Well I've still got lots of maps and I thought there might be someone out there who would like to have some maps to play with! I've got two to giveaway, one is of Hamilton and the other Lake Taupo, they are large topographical maps. This giveaway is open to everybody, world-wide! (As long as you don't mind them being sent folded). Just leave a comment on this post if you would like them and I'll draw a winner on Sunday.

Bakers Delight sent me a selection! Some original, traditional buns and also some chocolate ones. In order to give a fair review, I sucked one up for the team and tried both! Then I wanted to check to see how they well they kept, and if they were in fact nice to eat the next day ( a very important test right?) so again, I might have had one with my morning coffee (they were in fact so fresh the next day I could have sworn they were baked that day).
The rest were gobbled up by my family so fast that I didn't get to take a good pic of them. I saved two chocolate ones for a friend who was insanely jealous when I mentioned I was getting some sent to me. I popped two in a bag for her and surprised her, she was so excited and sent me a "thank you" text to say how she and her daughter had enjoyed them for their supper. That's what it's all about isn't it? Making someone happy with a surprise of something delicious? So pop down to your local Bakers Delight and make someone's day!
Now the lovely people at Bakers Delight have given me some of their vouchers to giveaway to my lovely readers.
I've got a first prize of two $10 vouchers - A combined value of $20! You'll be able to get lots of yummy goodies with that! A second prize of a $10 voucher! Yummo!

I had a fabulous time at Fabric-a-brac over the weekend! I was next to a very lovely lady (more about that in a post soon) and I finally got to meet the lovely Anissa from the Growmama blog! A few blog readers introduced themselves too! Which was a really lovely surprise. I came home with a few new pieces, my stall was really close to the Hospice donated fabric stall - dangerous. I bought a leather hide and another leather piece too, I'm hoping that some bag making will happen in the very near future. I didn't really have a good look around, which for a fabric
Check back tomorrow for a review and a yummy giveaway!

Fabrica-brac is on in Auckland and I've got a stall, some of those vintage trims I've been saving up will hopefully be off to new homes! But not the cross stitch trim in the top pic, I found it in a local church thrift store, two metres and a $0.40c price tag! It's quite beautiful, more so than the pic suggests. It's been lovingly unpicked from some other project, leaving behind some of the old threads, I love it! I'm thinking of putting it on a top.
