home peeks vol. 2

I hope you have all had a great week. I've had an exceptionally busy week with tests and stuff but I've had such a happy week since on monday I get my braces off!! So excited - I'll post a picture when they are off.

so here's what's been happening behind the scenes this month..

reading my new book: happy handmade home // making videos

so yes, this is what my room looks like when making a post - it is not tidy!! As you can also see I dont have the most high tech equipment. Don't you love the wood strapped to an old tripod with an iPhone balanced on the end!! Now you can imagine that when you watch a video. the joys!!

lip scrub containers // long spring walks

so the auckland weather was finally kind to us last sunday. So emily and I went for a long walk on our favourite beach - takapuna. Then we walked all around in the rocks to the next beach and took lots of photos! 

Now the lip scrub containers are for a school project. As a year 10 business student at my school, we participate in a market day project. Our group is making lip care products - including these lip scrubs. We also have lip balm and a night time treatment! We are so excited to sell them in a couple of weeks.

diying with emily // taking new photos

I've really been getting into my DIY's again this month - and now have a trusty assistant of emily. We both now just spend entire days together doing DIY. So much fun!!

see you next time

  1. Nothing beats creative equipment ;) Also, I wish I'd thought of the lip treatment idea back when my school held a market day! It's all I ever made back then!

  2. These are such stunning photos! I love all the craftiness to them.


  3. Congrats on getting your braces removed! :)
    The magazine looks really nice, which magazine is it?

  4. The tripod setup made me smile! Good creativity there :) Loved this post.

  5. I adore this (and your blog!) Also, the idea for taping up polaroids with washi tape... WHY DIDN"T I THINK OF THAT?! lol
