Over the past 18 months I have been attending the occasional market promoting my business, MikaelaBeth. At first I started with just a laminated sign with my logo pinned to the front of the table, but I wanted something more… and this is what I came up with. A sign like this would be perfect for so many different purposes – at a wedding, in a kid’s room, for Christmas etc.
Here’s how you can create your own:
Wooden Letter (these are the one’s I used)
Spray Paint in your chosen colour (I used White Knights ‘Magenta’)
Tiny Screw Eyes
1mm Drill Bit
When the stain is completely dry, plug in your drill, hold it like a gun, and rev it a few times (just for fun).
Next grab your 1mm drill bit, and drill holes in the top of each letter. For narrow letters drill one hole in the top center, and for wide letters (like M or K) you’ll want two holes in the top so they hang straight.
After drilling, twist a screw eye into each hole.
Lay the letters out on the floor in the correct order and space them the way you want them to hang. Unwind a length of string long enough to connect all the letters, plus a bit extra on each end.
Thread each letter onto the string one and at a time, knotting them in place. Make sure the letters are spaced evenly as you go along. If a letter hangs crooked, you can twist the screw eye to adjust the angle.
Here it is in place on my market stand and I love how it looks.
I may be off to a late start this year but I am looking forward to getting stuck into the new year and all the things that it’s going to bring with it!
Over 4 weeks of spending good fun, quality time with friends and family, lot’s of driving, beach holidays, music teaching training, birthday parties, Ultrasounds and getting my husband ready for work again. ‘Christmas’ really has been so much fun and I have enjoyed every moment of it.
Today I have finally been able to sit down in my office and get a few thoughts together and start to make some sense of the disorganised dumping ground it has become over the past month….
One thing that jumped off my phone screen while browsing my Instagram feed one day was the above 5 goals. Lorna Jane had posted the image and I have decided to make those 5 things my ‘New Years Revolution’.
Half way milestone has been reached. Wow.
Over the last couple weeks my belly has grown so much! (I’ve been told that it doesn’t stop from here on either…)
Now that I’m really starting to ‘show’ (and not just look like I’ve eaten too much for lunch) I’m enjoying wearing some of my firmer fitting tops that accentuate the growing bump mixed in with the loose flowy items which have been my primary wardrobe recently.
Turn the robots on and off to create your own tune!
Warning: It is slightly addictive.
The 2014 Pantone Color of the Year is Radiant Orchid – a gorgeous hue saturated with color.
It is described as expressive, creative and embracing, and emanating great joy, love and health.
Above are a few things that might need to make there way into my wardrobe very soon!
If you have 5 mins to spare you have to watch this!
Not sure if it’s the christmas spirit or pregnancy hormones but I actually had a tear rolling down my cheek!
This is the kind of thing I love about Christmas.
This is the perfect casual sunday outfit for brunch and a leisurely drive along the back country roads.

My husband had a unexpected day off, we celebrated by driving up to Murrurundi to have a late breakfast at a gorgeous cafe. There is a pretty little nursery attached to the cafe and I ended up buying a couple of indoor pot plants to assist with my goal of freshening up the house and to bring some extra life indoors. It was a perfect sunny morning and so nice to be out and about.
I love this time of year. Full of celebration and happy times.
Also its a good excuse to have a change and redecorate! personally I love to rearrange furniture and change things around in my house as its a fun way to clean up and declutter without making that the main project which isn’t near so fun.
I’m in the process of getting out my christmas decorations and thinking about making some new ones. Here’s a collection of DIY Christmas decorations that I love.
1. Porcelain Holiday Tree Lights 2. DIY Christmas Crackers 3. Confetti Bursts
4. Petal Drops 5. Christmas Cake Topper 6. Bottle Brush Trees
7. Mini Tree Advent Calendar 8. Twirling Trees 9. Modern Paper Ornaments
It’s popping up all over the media, on Facebook, blog posts, instagram and even the news, so I thought even though I’m not American and Thanksgiving isn’t an Aussie tradition I can still be thankful for so many things in my life.
So here are 10 things I am thankful for:
