Hello again

Well would you look at that! It’s been a whole year since my last blog post! Where have I been you may be asking?


That’s right. Little baby Milla Plum arrived on 3rd September has been monopolising my time over the past year. I’ve been on maternity leave from my day job and while I’ve been keeping up with a few of my regular design clients, I’ve been just soaking up all this time with my new little human and learning how to be Mumma. Here’s another one because she is just an absolute delight.


Ok so probably no more photos are required, she has already taken over my instagram account. Oops! But I promise to get back to posting here more regularly about the happenings around Hide & Create land. The other exciting thing was that we moved into our newly renovated house just a month before bubba arrived which has been so nice. I’ll have to devote another post to a before an after.

So onto a new little design project. Ok ok… yes it is related to Milla Plum because her 1st birthday is coming up in 10 weeks (whaaa?!) but it is also a really pretty design that I’m super happy with. We’re having a little garden party for her birthday – I’m thinking fairy lights in the big mango tree, little lanterns, flowers in teapots and I’m hoping to organise mum & bub matching flower crowns (teehee). I’ll have to post soon about my party planning.

Until then, have a squizz at these xx

I am a big fan of Christmas. I love everything about it – the decorations, the tree, the carols, the christmas pudding and the presents! I love the stinking hot summer day starting with a trip to the beach, christmas ham toasties with champagne, followed by lunch with the fam and a lazy afternoon on the couch. And equally good (if not better), the Boxing Day test the next day with all the leftover food. Everyone is in a good mood, you’re winding down at work and we’re all looking forward to a good break. Life is good.

So our Christmas tree has been up for a couple of weeks now (controversially early I know!) but to celebrate the first of December, I thought I’d post a little festive desktop for you to use. Let the countdown begin yay!
