It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

 We decorated the Christmas tree today.
The girls had so much fun arranging the baubles and 
some how they had the tinsel spread 
from one side of the room to the other, oh well :)
Here's the end result, didn't they do a fantastic job.  

  Just some things I have made.

All The Pretty Dresses...

I started smocking when my eldest daughter was a baby, she's now eight. The first smocked dress I ever made was a christening gown for her name giving. I love creating these beautiful dresses for my girls, knowing they will become treasured family heirlooms.

My Story...

A Little piece of heaven...
Hello everyone! After reading other craft blogs and much procrastination I thought it was about time to start one myself, thanks to my supportive hubby.

Hi my name is Rochelle, my friends and family call me Shell. I am a stay at home mum who loves to create. I have more ideas than I can handle! Creativity has been a lifelong passion....

I am married to my best friend, he's the love of my life and together we share three gorgeous little girls, my creative inspiration. The girls keep us busy but make life fun! 

I love being with my family, sewing, scrapbooking, photography, smocking, embroidery, knitting, crafting in general really. I love the way my girls faces light up & get excited when I've made something for them.
I enjoy long walks on the beach, watching movies, ice cream and good laugh.

I am a bit obsessive compulsive, a perfectionist and I love all things organized. Which is very frustrating when you live in household of mess makers.  

This will be a place where I share things I'm passionate about: being a mum, sewing, crafting and everyday life. 

Thanks for taking a look at my new blog.
Please be patient while I work on my layout.
See you again soon, as my story unfolds.
