'lil birthday treat

yesterday a little birthday treat for myself = 3 gorgeous macaroons.
pistachio, strawberry & chocolate.

from the delightful choux cafe in swanbourne.

noah's ark baby room

as possibly previously gushed about, my best friend sylvia is expecting.
so exciting!!!
note: the baby will be adorable – des and sylv both hail from that beautiful, olive skin, perfect features group of people.
anyway she told me about the wall paper border they were getting for the baby's room and then proceeded to worry about what would match with it.

dear pregnant musketeer:
in true i-love-to-design-the-world style i decided to put together a little 'mood board' for a noah's ark themed baby's room.
1. the wall paper border
2. himmel bed canopy (buying this for you, unless you don't like)
4. ikea elephant
(this is yours sweety, i bought it at the ball the other night for you xxx)
note: i think it's a girl – hence the wall colours

what do you think?

heart to heart ball

saturday was the heartkids heart to heart fundraising ball.
an amazing evening of food, entertainment, auctions and stories.
it nearly makes you cry to hear what families with heartkids go through.
we (slick design) designed the logo, tickets, programs, certificates etc.
a truly worthwhile organisation that we are so proud to support.
check it out here.

as promised heidi – here is a photo of my new red dress. xxx

believe it or not, i baked! (kind of)

i don't know if this counts as baking, but it's a huge step for me since I'm slightly 'allergic' to the kitchen (i.e. i hate it).
i made mini apple pies for charlene's baby shower on saturday afternoon.

mandy's mini apple pies:
some* puff pastry
some canned cooking apple
some cinnamon (i used lots. yum yum)
some sugar.
directions: 1 chop some apple into tiny little squares (I think it's called a fine dice in the cooking world). 2 add some cinnamon and some sugar. 3 make some pastry circles with a round object. 4 put pastry circles into mini muffin tray things. 5 put some apple mixture in the pastry circles and dust with some cinnamon. 6 put in the oven (i just winged it and guessed 200 degrees celcius). that's it.

(* 'some' – who measures?)

THE wedding invites

the invitations i designed for josh and cheri's wedding.
granted the concept was not mine – they came to me with an idea to do a magazine type layout.
a LOT of work, but they came out really well.
the 'lovey dovey' couple are over the moon about them so that's the main thing.
i also designed a simple matching DL (below) for guests only invited to the ceremony.
