My Creative Space - new home



We are all unpacked! woohoo :-) Now to decorating and making our new house a home. I won this fabulous Schmooks print called Neville and Friends - he was going on the wall but I kind of like him here - he is keeping Celeste company!


My hubby loves old books, particularly on Typography - we have found some lovely ones at 2nd hand book stores but also borrowed a few from my Dad that belonged to my grandfather who was a Graphic Artist. We have plans to turn some of these pages into a big art piece for the wall... with the help of Photoshop and block-mounting!


Boxes, boxes everywhere! They made some excellent toys! Anya sending her Daddy an email at work.




We also finally got around to baking in the new kitchen! We made gingerbread men... yummo.

See what is everyone else up to at Kirsty's.

Love those Office toys :) Boxes make the best toys often! My hubby made a 2 story cubby house with a tunnel, a cave, and the house part complete with front step, 2 windows, a light switch (run off a rechargeable battery) and a slide - and all out of a sofa box with a few bits and pieces!!! It's over 2 years old now, and the eldest still loves playing with it.

Looks like you're having a wonderful time there setting up home. Love the print, the books and the pics of your children enjoying their new home.

Also, great to see their imagination be stretched beyond bought toys, the computer made out of boxes is fantastic!!!

Enjoy!

Gotta love a box! Check out this book, if you get a chance: "Not a box" by Antoinette Portis. (Net wt. 360g). Harper Collins, 2006. One of my boy's favourites!
