You know those moments in life where things escalate quickly. Before you know it, you are someplace that you had no intention of going (and you have no idea how you got there).
 
That pretty much sums up this R2D2 cake for my son’s birthday party. I started off with the idea of making a pretty special cake that would stand vertically and make a striking centrepiece. Then my husband got involved, and suddenly we were discussing  how to make our R2D2 cake play the famous Princess...

We were at the market on the weekend when we discovered some beautiful bowls made from repurposed wine barrels. With a gentle curve to the wood, the barrels already have graceful lines and it’s like they have been secretly designed for this purpose.
I have seen so many ‘playroom’ pictures online that look like a magazine spread, let’s face it, they probably are. The rooms look amazing but you kind of get the feeling that the minute a child is allowed to actually ‘play’ in the space (rather than pose nicely for a photo) then the room would look altogether different.

THIS would be the number one item in our home that I get the most comments from guests about (and there is lots of cool stuff in our home if I do say so myself):

When I redecorated the playroom I wanted something different and creative to top it all off. I made this super-easy lampshade using only a basic paper lampshade, glue and paper ‘patty pans’.

When I say easy, I mean easy.

I have had so many questions and requests about this so finally I am going to let you all know how I made this dresser:

I made these quite a while ago, before baby 2 was born and absolutely love them. They are so bright and colorful I use them in heaps of my display shots for the artwork in my WallFry store and customers have been asking me where I got the dresser.

Our friends had a baby boy recently and we wanted to give them a personalized gift that was a little bit different. After searching high and low for a set of alphabet blocks to make his name, we decided it might be better if to do it ourselves - and I think it came up looking great.

I have seen these fabric covered letters around and I loved the look of them so thought I would have a go at making one for my baby daughter.

It seemed pretty straightforward, but I scoured the Internet anyway for a tutorial or some tips. I found this tutorial to be very detailed and helpful.

I have always wanted to create a cookie Christmas Tree and this year I finally found the time!

I purchased one of the star cookie cutter  packs online (you can get these everywhere now), found a rolled cookie recipe and got baking! You may prefer to do these with gingerbread, but I am not a fan so went with a vanilla cookie base.

Make your Halloween treats more spooky with edible monster eyes - so easy to make!
 
 
Edible monster eyes are the must-have item for making any sweet favor 'monsterlicious'. Making your own is sooo easy and works out sooo much cheaper than buying them. Once you make them you won't be able to believe you ever considered paying for them and (if you are like me) you will have heaps to spare!

Halloween is supposed to be creepy, even scary right?  Well if you have little kids like I do, you might want to keep the level of 'horror' down a bit. Still a little 'ewww' goes a long way.

Who says Halloween has to be all about the candy? We had a 'Monster Party' recently for my son's birthday and this was one of the huge hits with the kids.
When I started Wallfry, one of the biggest selling items in my store was the custom, personalized wall letters.  They are different from a lot of the other wall letters for children, in that you only need one!

Each year I make my two boys a cake. You may remember my post regarding the dilema with my 3-year olds 3rd birthday cake which ended up being a pretty satisfactory lion (albeit a licensed TV character, but that is all part of the story). This time it was nearing my youngest son's 2nd birthday so again the preparations begin:

We had a space in our relatively new house that has been bothering me since we moved in. It is a tall, narrow space and was completely bland and devoid of color:
It catches my eye every time I enter the house and I hated it. I had been searching for the right solution for ages (I even considered a feature wall) but could not find anything either both the right size AND right color.
 
Then I remembered a very old 'Art' frame that we bought from the Ikea 'As Is' section (it...

The only thing is with making your own cakes for your childrens' birthdays is that there is a certain pressure for the cake to be better and better with each year and each party. So the pressure was on to go one better with Harvey's second birthday cake after the success of his first birthday cake.

Posted by in DIY and Tutorials, Cakes / Parties on December 01, 2011 .
There are so many different children's birthday themes and ideas for decorations that it can become an expensive exercise for something that usually all gets thrown out the next day (or the same day if you are really efficient). So I took DIY to the next level and had Harvey create some of his own decorations for his second birthday party.

We have a space in our entry hall that was looking pretty barren and..... vacant even though it was a major thoroughfare for bikes and play.

I wanted to make use of this bare wall and had seen so many fabulous photo walls and framed art walls that I thought this would be the perfect space to create a feature wall with a difference. My goal was to make it as eclectic as possible while still maintaining some design integrity. We are really happy with the results:

As it is in a...

When DIY goes wrong..... sort of.
 
No, it is not a photograph of the sun during a solar eclipse or anything remotely as impressive, merely the results of my latest DIY project:

Have you ever wanted to do something with all those photos from a special event, trip or baby's first year? They sit in boxes or photo albums and never get looked at. None of them are really good enough to warrant a frame or spot on the wall of their own, but together they could be awesome!?
 I have recently created a collage frame with the photos from our wedding reception and want to share with you how I did it.
 
I made a large frame with 35 photos, however you could go...
