Season for sweet treats

One of my earliest Christmas memories would have to be hanging around my Nan's kitchen whilst she baked, whipped, moulded, cut, creamed and made sweet treats that smelt so yummy i wanted to lick every spoon and bowl in the kitchen! (this could be where my food love started?)
This year i thought i would get into the 'mum baking' mode seeing as though i need to work on my skills for next year, and i must say that i was kind of pleased and surprised! i didnt attempt my Nan's Christmas cake recipe it seems quite above my skill level for now, but i did find one from here. I also made a batch of rocky road the recipe was given to me from a friend at work, the best rocky road i have ever had and everyone at work drools over it too... although its probably the ugliest sweet treat in the world, who cares though when it is oh so yummy!

Feeling festive!

Well.. it is almost Christmas, yay! not so yay for the hot 38degree day. This year there will be no Christmas ham or seafood for me but hey I am sure I can make up for it with plenty of chocolate and other goodies instead!
2010 has been a great year for champ + Rosie, and next year will bring a new little arrival to the team! I have plenty of pics to post about transforming our study into a happy little nursery, and yes I did treat myself to another very special chair!
Thanks for all of your lovely emails, messages and support this year. I hope you all have a lovely festive season, stay tuned for 2011 x

Market wrap

Thanks to everyone who came down to perth upmarket last sunday it was a fab day! although I was only there for a few hours... my husband & brother did a great job looking after the stall... yes they did get some strange looks and a little bit of 'sooo you two guys craft this stuff huh?...' which they brushed off!

I did manage to have a bit of a look around this time and it was fantastic to see so many creatives in the one place.

If you are in Perth, dont forget that Subi Upmarket kicks off tonight at 5pm on Rokeby rd (towards the Hay st end) we wont be there this time (hopefully the drunken family member of the stall holder near us from last year wont be there either... no names) its a great night with loads of entertainment, yummy food and great stalls!

ps. jus burgers is just around the corner from here so maybe treat yourself after all that hard work shopping
