I'll do anything for money....

....said master 8.
He is saving up for one of these little "chips" you can put into your "D.S Lite" to store hundreds of games with one card. Does anyone else understand this....
Mmm, anyway, I said "OK, I want you to model something for me. I need to take some photos so I can put it on the website......"

So, one of my pink T-shirts later, a bit of tucking here and there, a little girly "stance" training... et voila......Here he is modelling a lovely shabby and sassy frilly apron for me! You've got to laugh! Well, he did say he'd do anything! He is now 50 cents richer!

Lots of new goodies have been added to the website this morning and a few to my Etsy shop. Click on the pics for a better look around at what has been added.

I was in a notebook covering frenzy on the weekend. I first made one for a friend for her birthday then decided it was so pretty I'd better make some more!

The house is coming along too.....

Bye for now, Kathryn. XX

gorgeous shabby goodies...(just been reading rachel ashwells blog...sad she is closing down all her shops)..

BUT KATHRYN...I THINK that wonderful pose deserves at least a DOLLAR..!! 50 cents is a bit cheap for THAT wonderful pose..

Don't you just love 8 year olds!! No no only pay him 50 cents, as a mother of a 15 year old you need to save every penny ... hahaha

Selina said...

slave labour! yes, I understand the little chip thing for the DS. only my hubby is the one that wanted it in our house!! and I do think the little guy deserves more than 50 cents! hehe

Deb said...

More wonderful goodies Kathryn. Tell your son I can see him in Next Top Model in a few years!!

sandra said...

love the covered notebooks. 50cents!! definitely worth more. Specially for a DS chip!

Shabby Raggy Roses said...

My son is also saving for the DS chip - $55 with 180 games isn't bad! Your notebook covers are adorable, I've been telling myself to make some more, but just haven't got around to it yet! I noticed your stunning apron earlier when I took a peek at your things and actually wondered whether it was one of your boys posing! Lol he looks great!
Best wishes,
Jenelle

Lovely makes, you've been a busy bee. Cracked up at the image of your son in the skirt! I've been wanting to make some headbands and wondering about getting Harry to allow me to use his head!

So much loveliness on your blog...I just say AHHH!!!
And say to your lovely boy..that he did a fantasic job!!! :o)

Thecraftytrundler said...

Well it's certainly an easy way to earn extra money, you would never know it's your son!!! It's hard to take a picture of yourself, so this is a great idea!!
Love your pretty, shabby chic makes, they're gorgeous!!

Have a great week : )

Hilarious!
He works very cheaply... watch out for a price rise in the near future.

Alison Gibbs said...

Oh that is so funny. I hope you have some photos with his head in them too- that would be fabulous for his 21st birthday photo board.

SG said...

Lots of bautiful work! Plus you are having some fun with your boy! He doesn't charge that much... You should pay him a little more! :) :)

Dionne said...

Beautiful work, your photography is grand. And your model is so.... lovely!
Cheers,

Love all your pretties Kathryn - especially the notebooks. I think it is time someone older and wiser had a whisper in Master 8's ear about brokering a better payment deal. Surely all that pink deserves some kind of humiliation allowance or extra loading...LOL.
Got to admire his work ethics though - well done Master 8.

Beautiful creations Kathryn! As usual! I love the little notebooks.

Master 8 looks good - I agree with many - that pose is definitly worth more than 50 cents!!

Thank youXX

The Handmaden said...

Love all these things, especially the quilt and pillow. Your shops are looking gorgeous with lots of variety.

Sarah said...

Hi Kathryn,
YES YES YES I do get what you mean about that little card thingy. Both my girls have DS's & it's amazing what I can get them to do if I say NO MORE DS if you dont......!
He did well for you, looks super cute! Your apron is just beautiful, as is the quilt & pillow & those note books are just adorable.
Hope you all have a fab weekend

Your poor lad - that's given me a giggle this evening. So you tutored him in 'girly stances'? He he!

Beautiful things here - I'm off to see your etsy shop - it looks full of treasures to me.
