This is the carry case, the whole thing only weighs 10kg, so it is really light and portable.
I love it!

This is my tote bag, it's hard to tell but it's a chocolatey brown.
The pockets are made from the leftovers and there are vintage buttons on the corners.
I reversed the fabrics for this side, the pocket has a dividing seam down the centre so it is actually two pockets in one.
For this challenge we were given some label graphics to work with,
we could use them however we liked.
These are my Prim journals. I used heavy recycled cardboard and tied recycled paper pages inside. The one on the right is for a bingo prize on P4P, the other one is a keeper lol.....
I also made these Prim spice jars - easy peasy! I was pleased with how they turned out....
I am really enjoying these challenges, it is fun to get out of my comfort zone and work with different materials and ideas.

We love to go out in our gypsy wagon and cart. The girls are such darlings, very quiet..... Blossom is 11 years old, her daughter Vixen is 5. We don't get out nearly as often as we would like, but it's fun when we do....

Victor the goat
and last but not least, my girls, Nutmeg and Cinnamon.
Of course our numbers change all the time, we recently sold my calf, and one of the ponies. And sadly one of our dogs was hit by a car and died not long ago. But we always seem to come home with more animals, tomorrow we will pick up 4 pregnant ewes to add to our menagerie.........
My hubby sanded and sealed the floors for me and put up a few shelves, most of the shelves were already there.
I have my stereo, a kettle, oil burner and armchair- all the comforts of home. It's a great spot to have some "me time" when the kids are getting a bit rambunctuous! We still need to finish painting the outside, and have to replace the timber around the windows, but there's plenty of time for that. We call it the Doll House because I love to make primitve cloth dolls. Aren't I spoilt?
Another friend has a chook farm so he very generously gave us a huge load of chicken manure, taking care of the nitrogen content. As you can see, we still have lots to do. Each garden has to be layered with carbon and nitrogen materials, sort of like a big lasagne. Once it has settled we will be able to plant our vegies. We also set up compost bins made from wooden pallets. This will give us the ongoing compost we need to fertilise our gardens.

I am married to the sweetest man on earth, I am a mum of 2 and stepmum of 2 , and we all live together on a little 21 acre farm. We have loads of gorgeous animals that are all part of our little family. When I am not doing all my "Mum" roles, I manage to fit in my part time job selling skincare and cosmetics.
My favourite pastime is making prim goodies. I love to sew cloth dolls, do punchneedle and I am learning rug-hooking. I hope to share some of my creations with you via this blog.
