Smart Exposure’s McGrath Foundation Fundraising Lunch 2013

It’s been almost a year since this event, but I just stumbled across these photos and thought they were too beautiful to not share.  I was really proud of this table and so honoured to be a part of this day.  Thanks to Anissa from Smart Exposure for asking me to style this table for the McGrath Foundation Luncheon.  It was a fabulous day, and hopefully  I can make this years event.

Time to get organised…

So I have been missing in action for a while now… we are all busy lets face it. Unfortunately this blog is one of the first things that dropped off the ever growing “To Do List”.  BUT – I am back, and with a recent surge of motivation to get THE LIST down I decided to start with a few quick and simple tasks.

First stop – IKEA:  When living in Melbourne I had a fear of IKEA.  It was a decent drive from home, I worked full time, and it’s not a place you wish to visit on the weekend.  My husband and I learnt that the hard way.  Anyway, when we moved to Sydney, it was located close to home and as I wasn’t working I could go during the day.  So what was once a stressful place, actually isn’t that bad.  (Plus my daughter loves the child minding – BONUS, and my too young to go into said child minding son loves the 50c ice-cream)  Anyway, I wanted to sort the kids pencils – I had the usual pencil cases, but they were kept in a drawer which was tough to open and for young children I think it is hard to see what they have inside.  Hence, pencils all over the table or floor.  So I purchased these beautiful tins – pretty sure they are for plants.  I got my Stampin’ Up Big Shot out and the largest Stampin’ Up Framelits from the ‘Apothecary Accents’ set.  I had some chalkboard fabric which I purchased from a fabric store some time ago.  This is the end result.

Did you know I am a Stampin’ Up Independent Demonstrator?

If you like the look of the Stampin’ Up Big Shot or Framelits, contact me to find out more about purchasing these items.
