Friday freebie - September calendar

I am still here, just running around like crazy! I eventually finished a range of labels for a client that took much longer than anticipated - I would love to share it with you as soon as she launch her products, so watch this space. I am going on a short trip upcountry and hope that things will be back to "kind of normal" on my return. Here is your Sept calendar - as the 1st of Sept is Spring day in my part of the world, I also made a Spring version with some butterflies. Hope you like!

Taking a break

Dear blog friends, I haven't been around a lot - my apologies! I have been quite busy and we have a 3 week school holiday at the moment, so I am taking a rather long blog break. In the meantime I found the most amazing blog via Pinterest - finding it so difficult to choose a design to share with you, please visit Sarah for more eye candy. Be back soon ♥

Blue dress

This dress reminds me of a blue dress I had as a teenage girl - it actually drove my mom crazy, because for a while there I was kinda hooked on blue and wanted no clothes if it wasn't powder blue! Now it's my turn and often makes me smile when my daughter is very specific about what she wants to wear and what she will not wear, although she is actually very easy going when it comes to clothes.

Friday Freebie - Paris tags

Ernest Hemingway's "If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast." from his published memoirs of his life in 1920s Paris, called "A Moveable Feast" inspired me to make this tag. I hope it inspires you in some way, I just love that quote! Have a great weekend!!

'Plaaskoffie' is the afrikaans (my first language) word for farm coffee - I scanned it from an old coffee tin we inherited from my mother in law. I absolutely love a good cup of freshly brewed coffee and usually don't have more than three cups a day, definitely three of the highlights of my day! The heart, hand and coffee tin images are from Graphics Fairy - linking to Brag Monday, also my entry for the coffee challenge over at Take a Word today. Enjoy your cuppa wherever you are!

I heart

Last night I tried to catch up on some of my favourite blogs. I literally felt like a kid in a candy store when I visited the Graphics Fairy. Karen posted the most beautiful images during December and January, one of which was this pretty heart with the rose and butterfly! The birdie is also a favourite from Karen's blog - linking to Brag Monday.
