Wow I have to say what an amazing job our stall holders did on Saturday. The cake stall looked a million dollars. It was exploding with yummy treats. George FM rocked the house all day and we even had some lovely customers come in theme. How cute do they look!!!!
We are still taking in money for our Pink Ribbon Breakfast. We should have a total for you at the end of the week. Thank you, thank you, and thank you again to you all.
I'm very excited to share our silent auction. This will start at 10am tomorrow morning and run until Friday next week. You can bid on this via crafternoon tea in email form and private message on facebook. Also via big little on their facebook page and email. The reserve is $30 with a RR of $100-$130. What a beautiful coat. Head over big little's blog for more details. ONE MORE SLEEP TO GO.
Make sure you grab a copy of The Ponsonby News or jump online for a great read. Even better I spot Crafternoon Tea on page 122. A big thank you to them for their support. All confirmations have now been sent for our huge Pink Ribbon Breakfast market. Amazing stall holders, yummy cake stall, live DJ's from George FM what more could you want?? Giveaway's at the door and in the market maybe??? A silent auction from Big Little perhaps??? You will just have to come along and see won't you.

It's nearly that time again. Time to get into your bike and head down to the market. We are excited to have a cupcake person attending. Welcome to Caitlyn's Cupcakes.
And the always, always did I mention always. Yummy Relish the thought will be back. Get those empty jars ready. And stock up on your favourite sauces, jams and pickles. I can't wait. So this Saturday people. 400 New North Road 10am -2pm is the place to be.
You really must head over to Big Little and check out their winter coat giveaway. I had the pleasure of hanging out with Lisa from Big Little yesterday. Seeing her amazing work studio and enjoying a warm drink while she did a little work. I have to say that Lisa's coats are amazing so you really must check out her blog for the giveaway. The work and love put into each item is beautiful.
I finally go around to using my free 30 trial with MDS (my digital studio). Via Stampin' Up. Now I'm not the best when it comes to computers but I was able to download it onto my computer. (high five to me!!!!) and after a little help from a lovely demonstrator last night I had a little play around. It's awesome!!!! There are lots of tips on youtube if you get stuck so don't panic. And if I can do it.... so can you. I've done lots of fun ones for the kids and I really think it's something I could get into. It might motivate me to get the kids photos sorted out.
Halfway into the holidays and it's not so bad. We picked about 22kg's of Fejoas and the kids have a stall outside our house. A great way to make some pocket money and learn about pricing and weights.
My oldest boy gets so excited every time someone puts some money in the honesty container.
Yesterday we took the train into the City and walked around all the lovely shops before grabbing lunch then home again. It kind of made me miss my old life (as a Visual Merchandiser) especially looking at how beautiful all the windows are around Britomart. Karen Walker, Zambesi and Trelise Cooper just to name a few. I even came across a little wool shop so I managed to get myself a fix.
Tomorrow we are off to the movies. That should be fun!!! Three children and one movie to pick is always an issue in our house. There is always someone who isn't happy. Oh well such is life.
