Little bit of baking !

Fri Mar 2, 2018, 10:37 PM
Tomorrow I have all kids to myself yep 6 ! while my Dad and Trent head out to Clipsal 500 tomorrow ! Trent won tickets on the radio about 3 weeks back as well as tickets to Robbie Williams  but hes not into seeing that !

So Today I had a break from cleaning ( hard to believe ! ) and instead got baking , bulk cooking......

Made huge slab of Vanilla slice , 24 banana muffins , 24 butterscotch muffins , anzac slice as well as loaded pizza puff scrolls and chilli scrolls........

Plan to freeze some of the muffins for school lunches and the scrolls but I think im done for the day !

My back is telling me to sit down and do nothing ! well might put my outlander on and watch it totally addicted !

Tomorrow I plan to sit and draw if I get time running after 5 kids is a full time job ! 

Oh and set up a picture wall in my kitchen it was rather blank ! and a coffee station ! so I think on that note I shall go have a nice cup of coffee ! and sit down before making dinner ;p

Organizing my house room by room

Fri Feb 23, 2018, 5:48 AM
I have always wanted to organize my house but did not have the money to start or will power to be honest....... being a Mum of 6 my whole life seems to revolve around cooking , cleaning and yet the house never seems to get as clean or tidy as I want it and I feel so worn out........ plus we rent so putting up shelves or making extra rooms was not a option ! 

Well I was paid back some money I was owed from last year and decided I could afford to spend $300.00 after paying all the bills and decided I wanted that money to go as far as I could because we live week to week  and I do not have one those magical money tree ( has not stopped me hunting for one ! ) so it had to be budget friendly as well as recycling some older things I owned to look brand new......

So I purchased a bedhead after xmas couldn't afford to do my room up plus we share with my 2 toddlers so the kids things had taken over and it looked well kid room , cluttered mess !!!!!  so I went to Kmart Australia and purchased some cheap stylish bedding , a pretty pink velvet chair and some cushions as well as a fluffy pink throw from target to go with what I already had ( my grannies antique lamp and my flowers. ) I feel it really came together so well !!!!!!!!! cost me approx $130 or less.... oh and Fantastic furniture where I purchased my bedhead from asked to display the photo on there website as well as TV , paper adverts and I go in the running to win a $250 voucher ( not going to say no ! ) 

My ensuite was this small room with no vanity storage and room is lacking so everything was thrown into plastic tubs and well it was so messy I hated it ! but I finally found a wire draw set that fits under my vanity for storage and thought its still not allot its now clean and tidy....... I matched the colours with our room as well as some pretty decorations and even came up with a budget crafty idea for a flower set with fairy lights in the bottom of a jar it hides my air freshener - total room cost under $ 70

My fridge was the cheapest space to clean up it took allot of scrubbing and a few ( about to be thrown out ) plastic tubs and some cheap labels to organize this space ! I now have my fridge set up in a way that I can see what we have at a glance ( handy for bulk cooking ) and saves me money because in the long run I won't buy what we do not need !  - cost $3.00 for the labels

My pantry - I call it my little chaos it was terrible like think WW1 and WW2 put together and you get the idea...... I had so much stuff , it was so messy like frightening to think about really ! so I purchased some clear plastic tubs and containers and baskets from Kmart , used some Canisters I already had in pastel to add some colour to brighten the space as well as recycled some old freezer draws that were going to get thrown out to use as draws for my grocery , canned/tinned , veg , and unopened goods........ with a few labels and cleaning power and 7-8 hours yes it was a huge job I got it done........ and to be honest it still amazes me this is my pantry I just love it and the photo's do not do it justice ......... total room cost $60

So tomorrow I hit the kitchen and under my sink ( shudder) and I already know I spent  $15.00 and will use mostly every thing else I own...... less mess more organized  ...... if I could teach my 21 year old son how to wipe the dishes and put lids back on my plastic containers instead of chucking them into what ever cupboard he finds space in that would be great ! few months back he threw a glass dish in and it fell out and shattered needless to say it fell on my foot it was bleeding and I needed stitches so I so do not need that to happen again ! I could not walk on it easily.........

Total cost came to - $278.00 !!!!!!!!! under budget <3 always good but it was huge job this week i am so sore ! my back is killing me 

Now to save up to do the rest of the house * pouts * 

OH also opened up a Instagram page !!!!!!!! www.instagram.com/heartsdesire…

Rainbow cuteness overload ! by Heartsdesire-fantasy





I have been dealing with the hot weather of late here in South Australia as well as getting my children off to school as well as Jasmine starting kindy this last week so I do apologise for not being around as much !

I have worked on a doll requested by my little girl Jasmine , she loves seeing me draw dolls and has been playing with some doll makers but I wanted her to have her very own doll so its inspired by her using my own chibi hearts base and though rather bright and colorful it came together as I wanted it.

I also completed my second entry to the Next top doll contest , she is inspired by woodland and tool/pixel shaded first time in over 12 years ! 

Harmony Aura woodland haute couture by Heartsdesire-fantasy



I have a new base set I have started working on inspired by Jack and Jasmine it is a traced base off some angel clipart and cards I found but edited to my own style so I will get them done in time for Valentine's day I hope ! 

So My plan is to finish my base set as well as work on my Valentine's day gift exchange before the 15th ! 

I also found some old dolls and things not sure if I will post them they are some of my original dolls and doll sets maybe ill do a Then and now sort of thing....... also found a wonderkins base set edit I did , it was a free to use base set a few years back I created that did not require a link back as the wonderkins base is what got me into dolling and back then there was no wonderkin blank bases without clothing so I might update it and release it as a free to use base again. 

I also want to create a layout for this DA page but need to really come up with some sort of idea on what I want.......... I know it will be pixel and hearts but anyway ! 

Have a great week all !

Game Thrones Pixel Heartsdesire Fantasy 2017 by Heartsdesire-fantasy








Last night I was working on my " Game of Thrones" pixel art and I noticed water pouring out of my PC it was like " OMG " computers are not meant to spring a leak ! and sure its water cooled but its so not to leak water !!! well I saved my work and turned it off as fast as I could...... 

Needless to say last week has been rather hot in South Australia and I sit near the air conditioner and last night a cool change came through and it became rather stormy , and started raining well it looks like the air conditioner sprung a leak and decided my PC was a good spot for it .......... well we spent until 2am drying it out , moved my desk , turned and unplugged the air conditioner and all I was thinking was " I so can't afford a new PC I just hope it dries out and nothing's eroded or blown" well thankfully touch wood disaster was averted and its running all good ! 

So today I decided I must finish my " Game of Thrones" pixel art portrait that I was working on , and got it finished , I was going to animate it but I just felt it would of looked to cluttered , really is the most detailed pixel art piece I have ever done and some things do not look fully like it ie. but I tried my best and really am proud of how detailed it is.

Inspired by the following 

Time goes by
Seasons change
winter is coming
'Game of Thrones'


Jasmine my 4 year old daughter went to her first Kindy morning today , my little girls growing up to fast , she was none to impressed getting up early and putting her in the shower but once she got there she had a great time , so yes proud Mummy moment ! next year she goes full day 9 - 3 on a Wednesday and Thursday !  love my baby girl !

New doll and Hiatus

Sat May 22, 2010, 7:46 PM
I am trying hard to get some new dolls out and so far I have finished my Queen Elizabeth I doll which was inspired by a painting of her, I am working on a Marie Antoinette doll and doing a series of dolls "Great women in history"....

I am also sad to say as of 9th June I will be on Hiatus for a while because I am off to have a Tummy tuck to remove allot of excess skin from my weight loss 65kg to 143 pound weight loss. I am very nervous yet excited about this new chapter in my my life.... so I have a ton of things to do before the operation....

So I shall try and update with some more dolls as soon as I can.

Last night I was sitting playing the sims 3 for some time out, and the house started shaking.... now I can not explain how i felt apart from saying I felt sick feeling straight away..... I have never felt a earth Tremor ever before and this was a different experience for us in Adelaide..... it was a freaky, experience one that I hope to not feel again any time soon !

............................................................................................................................

On art note... I have been making some polymer clay cupcake pins for my sewing and a felt cupcake pincushion.... very fun to get into ! I have a plan to make some charms and some different jewelry.....

I have been working on a new Elizabeth doll but I haven't had much time, with the school holidays on atm, I have been spending allot of time with Adien and the boys....

.............................................................................................................................

On that note we are also looking for a new house to rent, I was informed last week that the owner where we are now is thinking of selling the property so I have applied for a new house just waiting to see how our application goes.... its allot bigger than our current house and has a enclosed backyard and allot of space for the kids to play.... sadly there is not a extra room to make into my craft room but one day ! for $265 a week Im not going to complain, especially since 3 bedroom houses in Aldinga are up to $300 plus atm and 4 bedroom are even worse....

thats all for now :)

Scotty dogs

Sat Aug 29, 2009, 6:42 AM
Just a little update to show my little scotty dog toys ! They were created using felt, stuffing, embroidery thread, sewing thread, a ribbon, button and a bell inside to make a jingle........ they were then hand sewed using blanket stich ..... I created them for my boys Joel and Joshua and I have 1 more to make for Jamie.....

if you want to make your own you can find the pattern here
allsorts.typepad.com/allsorts/…

I have also decided to try out making my very own felt inspired candy doll..... It cant be to hard but I would love seeing my cartoon dolls turn into real dolls ! and its a neat way to remember them by .... :) I have some funky retro material and some skin colored felt.... and I thought i would either embroider the face on or paint it using acrylic paint.... but I wont start that until tommorrow :) im tired.....

enjoy.... <3

Creativity

Tue Aug 25, 2009, 7:54 PM
Its been some time since I have been on Devianart..... I do apologise but life has taken a sudden turn and become rather full... its amazing how adding 1 more of somthing makes life just so much fuller... though I am not complaining...

I am very excited about learning a new craft.... well 2 I guess ! I have always loved getting involved into craft and after finding a book about silk ribbon embroidery I was hooked.... So 2 weeks ago I said thats it im going to teach my self... I went to my local library and found some books on Silk ribbon embroidery and also sewing because other than using a sewing Machine in high school I have never used one before..... I got a mini sized Sewing machine for $35.00 and I got some ribbons, material , lace and needles and I was set.... well set after going 3 or 4 times to "Spotlight" the craft mega store here in Australia... I even became a VIP member rofl....

And I made my first silk ribbon heart.... it sort of just came together I was so pleased with the results, though it took me 3 hours to figure out how to use my sewing machine.... lets just say I lost my patience more often than not... but I did it ! Its funny how proud I feel I made somthing yay !.... how sad am I.. I filled it with stuffing and some rose scented potpuri and I now have a yummy smelling shabby chic bedroom with a cushion made by me.... I then set to work on my second one for my Nana's 80th birthday Present but this time I used a template... to be honest I prefer my first one using nothing but I loved how it came out and since it was somthing made by me it was a special gift.... I think she liked it.

I now have 10 to make for Birthday and Christmas gifts which is good practice as I do plan some day of making a shop on ebay and selling them... I saw some plain looking ones going for $30 so I think it could be a good start at a home buisness...

I also found a site about softies.... and Black apple dolls ! made out of felt.... so you will see some more crafty things from me yet..... and I even started my very first "reborn doll" though I feel this is a art that I dont think i could affored to get into.... the start up would be over $500 im doing it cheaply using oil paints atm.... but rooting the hair just scares me I dont know if I can do it.... I have started on a small berenger doll....

I am working on some digital art atm I might post the line art I did... I have colored it once but it just didnt look as I wanted so I deleted it.... my husband said I was just being picky ! its another fantasty style one....

And I have a doll I started shes a mermaid .... just need to finish her up .... I think on the dolling front ill just use my own bases and be done with it .... I miss dolling ! just when I get on the computer atm Jamie starts up ... he hates me doing any thing but cuddling him.... I need more hours in a day.

So yes im in that creative mood but I just need somthing called TIME .... to fit it all in.

Love you guys

Lisa

I haven't gone totally.... actually i am working on some digital art, so far the outlines done and today im working on adding the color..... I also have a mermaid doll I started working on..

I have had a rather stressful week this week ... the whole family came down with the dreaded flue and little Jamie got it also... he had trouble breathing and ended up going to hospital, he has bronchitis and allot of fluid on his left lung... and allot of nasal fluid so I have been having some late nights sitting with him and trying to keep him happy.... I have him home now thankfully but it really upsets me to see him trying hard to breath and coughing all the time. Hes now 10 weeks and they said there is nothing he can have to help just warm baths, and keeping him fed..... so keep him in your prayers.

I am also saddened by the news of Michael Jackson passing, he was such a fantastic performer that had allot of heart.... I am still shocked he was so young.... my hope is that his children will be well cared for.... so my thoughts are with his family at this time.

Well I will try get this digital piece finished so I can show you all somthing.

Oops I did it again !

No im not pregnant again ! thank goodness.... I did a woopsy and backed up the wrong file when I formatted a couple weeks ago and lost all my new dolls, my website layout I was working on, and tons of other arty farty things I was working on ! I put it down to lack of sleep... and to much going on.

We had my mother in law turn up from interstate the other week .... she didnt tell us she was coming until she was outside our house .... and I have never met her before so I was in total shock it was 7 at night and let it be said I looked somewhat messy and the house was a mess ! the kids had every toy out so it was more like toys r us than a house.... they stayed a week and it was good for the boys but I was a bit over whelmed and didnt like the fact we had no warning ! and I was still sore after having Jamie... needless to say I was relieved when they left and we could go back to normal....

So things have been so busy and I still have this pregnancy brain going on ! I thought I had backed up my files but oh well no use crying over it ! now to start over in my spare time * rolls her eyes * what spare time you may ask !

On a good note Jamie is now 5 weeks old now and has put on so much weight and hes out of his 0000 clothing and into 000's already hes very tall and his hairs even thicker ! and I can't beleive how good the boys have been with him...

On my weightloss... well I put on 2kgs since having Jamie which really did upset me but I have been put back on diaformin as my PCOS was playing up again and I am back down to 93kgs which is a relief .... I also found out that when you have PCOS you have problems producing milk so now I know why I have had so much trouble with my milk supply ! I now plan by October to be at my goal weight of 75kgs or close to it.... so back to the drawing board 2009 is the year I will reach my goal ! so far I have lost 67kgs

On Monday I have a appoitment with the plastic surgery clinic at my local public hospital I have been on the waiting list to have a tummy tuck done to remove the excess skin and my hope is that I will be able to have it done !.... they look and see if you are viable to having it done... theres so much skin that I now find it hard finding clothing that looks nice without having to wear the tummy tighner pants or suit.... so fingers crossed ! its a big operation but I need to do somthing as it just wont tighten with excercise theres to much...

well thats it for now hopefully ill have somthing to show soon ! every thing takes longer when you have a baby !

Photos of Jamie

my beautiful boy Jamie

I am happy to say on the 12th April , Easter Sunday Jamie Roger Cotter came into the world at 2.27pm he is just a little doll, it was a very easy 2 hour labor and needless to say he came at 37 weeks but no health problems... It was the best easter pressy any one could give me. He weighs 3,085kgs , approx 6.4 pounds and is very long... and has a very full head of dark hair that has blond streaking through it.... hes very quiet at the moment..... his brothers are very excited atm and keep giving him kisses , especially Joel... Im very blessed.

I plan to spend allot of time with the boys at the moment so I hope you can understand my lack of drawing ect.... and with a new baby I just am going to be rather busy !

A new doll and I have 7 weeks to go !

Tue Mar 10, 2009, 4:08 PM
The big countdown.... well more on that later ;p I am so sorry I have had a slack attack and its taken me 3 weeks or more to finish a doll I started so yes 1 new doll ! mind you I really did enjoy working on her shes was meant for Marrii's contest but I just didnt get her done in time , but i really love her so enjoy.

Well I have 7 weeks to go now until the baby is born and i will admit I am getting very excited.... and I have ballooned in the last week... I feel like a beached whale no pun intended ! and walking is rather amusing or rather watching me walk I cant call it a walk I call it the waddle.... and he has not much room but wow he knows where to kick! he gets him self stuck and often his feet stuck in my sides and it really does hurt.... so glad I only have 7 weeks to go.

I have started preparing for the new baby I went and got a lovely dark cherry wood bassinet on ebay for $75.00 I could not resist it when I saw it !, and I have a beautiful bassinet/cot winnie the pooh set thats just beautiful its old fashioned looking the lady who has made it is really talented... I got it for under $200... once it all arrives ill have to take pics.... And since the new baby will have new bedding I got a new winnie the pooh cot set for Joshys cot and for Joels bed which he wont go  into ! hes scared of the big bed atm  we got a new winnie pooh set so yes there rooms got that winnie the pooh thing going on !!! oh and my major bargain is a cot and mattress for $25.00 its in real good condition has 4 days to go yet but so far no other bids..... ebay is my friend.

So I think im nesting ! i have washed all my baby clothing and want to non stop clean.... I just cant stop thinking about all the things I need to do.... but I have the flue atm so I am so not in the mood yet I so wanna ! and poor little joshua has chicken pox ! hes had a real mild case so lets just say this week for the little ones are feeling rather miserble and Im just feeling ick !
