Hello Everyone – school holidays are over and we finished it off with a lovely few days away up the NSW coast with friends.  Spring is definitely here and I am loving the warmer days – I am definitely a warm weather lover!

Today I am sharing with you a recent article I wrote for the Spring edition of Adore Home Magazine all about my favourite places to visit in Bali. How nice to be called a Travel Writer – I need to find more of these gigs!

I am excited to announce the first Sweet Style Photography Workshop to be held in my studio here in Sydney in November.   

After teaching a number of larger group sessions, I have had numerous requests from people to run a small session that really allows lots of personal attention.  With this in mind this workshop will only have 5 attendees.  We can look at your camera and I can help you to understand what all of the manual settings allow you to do.

Here is all the information you need about the day.

Click here to be taken to the workshop page and book your space!  
The session time is set for 10am-2pm but we can go longer if there are more questions that need to be answered.

Remember we are only taking 5 participants so don’t delay!

It is school holidays here and my lovely friend Michelle dropped over last week with a big box of fun craft to keep the kids occupied for the morning.  Michelle is a whizz with craft which goes without saying as she owns a super cool business called Little Crate – a fabulous box filled with craft fun that arrives on your doorstep each month!

Our crafting activity for the morning was all about being in the garden.  
Follow along with these simple instructions for a great craft activity to do with the kids this week.  

Alternatively jump on the Little Crate website and order one of their crates and it will arrive on your doorstep ready to go within a few days.   School holiday boredom solved!

Here is what you will need for today’s project
Mini paper cups
Paint brush
Jiffy Soil Pellet

To start use the toothpick to peirce three small holes in the bottom of the cup so that the water can drain

Now it is time to paint – grab those paint brushes and have fun with lots of colours and patterns.

Allow your works of art to dry in the sun for a little while before moving to the planting stage


Next place the soil in the bottom of the cup and add some water – the soil we have used is a jiffy pellet but any soil will do


The seeds go in the pot next – we have used a Lemon Balm Seed

Now you need to leave your pot in a protected spot with plenty of light and and over the next few weeks watch your seed turn into a lovely plant.
