Aussie Rainbows

I've always wanted to create one of these Etsy Treasuries and this week I finally worked out how to do it!

It's called 'Aussie Rainbows' and is full of great products.

I had a lot of fun searching for gorgeous bright rainbow inspired items created by some very talented Australian Etsians. Most of them are from the Dust Team and the others are fellow Aussies.

Hope you enjoy it as much I enjoyed creating it!

So proud of my DH

Well I must say, I really am a proud wife at the moment. My husband has always impressed me with his many talents. He has always been right in to music and he loves to play it loud! We all usually sit in his 'boys room' which kind of respresents a home based nightclub! Complete with laser lights, strobes, a smoke machine and of course my little contribution - my disco ball!

Anyway, he recently went to DJ school and learned how to mix music and as it turns out he has become quite the DJ.

My aunty had her 50th birthday party on the weekend and he was asked to DJ and he just did the most amazing job! Everyone danced all night and the music was sensational. It was a really good mix of golden oldies from the 70s, 80s and 90s. A great night was had by all and now we cannot wait to do it all again!

Well done Pete!
