s.............
DRUM ROLL............

TONIGHT AT 9PM NSW TIME the entries to win the iPAD 4 will CLOSE! Now so I am not repeating myself all day this is how it is going to go down tonight:
As stated in the terms and conditions on the blog It can take up to 48 hours to announce the winner publicly as these following steps need to be ensured:
1) they are in fact an Australian resident
2) They have done the additional entries correct e.g comment on blog post, share set to public etc.
3) I need to ensure there are no fake profiles being used and will be confirming the identity through a copy of a current and australian drivers license again confirming their address, name, resident status etc.
4) The winner will need to be emailed and all checks confirmed before I can legally announce on the blog
5) cannot and will not be announcing the winner on fb it is against fb rules and it also will only be announced via my blog. again winner will have been emailed and notified first.

I pray for it all to go smooth sailing and I hope that it is someone who has indeed followed all the rules. 
I just wanted to make it clear to everyone involved how it will work.
Also to make it clear I DO NOT SELECT THE WINNER. IT IS DONE RANDOMLY!
IT IS AT MY DISCRETION TO ASK FOR PROOF OF WHO YOU ARE TO BE FAIR TO ALL INVOLVED. THAT IS FINAL. YOU WANT THE IPAD YOU WILL RESPECT MY DECISION. FINAL.
Now lets get on to enjoying a day of fun and celebrating all that is MWL!
Lots of Love,
Talya! x

Dump Everything! This party is under construction!

Did the title catch your attention? Well I hope it did because this next invitation design is bound to catch your eye! This party is under construction and as you guessed it, it is a construction/dump truck themed birthday.

What little boy wouldn't want to have this as a party! And a lot of the mums have been so impressed with our new design, I was even complimented today when I went into my local bank's branch and one of the lovely bank tellers was telling me how impressive she was with this invitation. Really made my day seeing and hearing people appreciate my work (without bragging) but it really made my day. I left the bank all happy and confident. So thank you all for your encouragement and enthusiasm and appreciation. Bet you are dying to see what all the hype is about!

Here it is! The infamous dump truck invitation design! The template is completely my own design and I spent at least 7 hours designing the truck template alone. But I love the end result and so glad so many mums do too! This massive dump truck measures 14x21cm. The dump tray tilts or swivels out to reveal the wording underneath which is headed with "Dump everything! Russell's 5th birthday is under construction".

This invitation features a colour scheme of black and yellow which really stands out!

Have you ever noticed that all the samples for a boy feature the name of Russell or Lachlan? Are you intrigued to know why this one boy has all these cool parties?

If you would like to order or enquire into pricing of these invitations please feel free to email or contact me via my facebook page.

Do you have another theme in mind and would like samples and pricing? I love, love, love the challenge of themed and custom invitations so contact me to find out how your next party can be 'Made with love'!

The animals go marching Two by Two!

I have been busy this week creating some gorgeous and interactive invitations which has been great considering all of the horrible weather we have experienced this past couple of weeks. I was nice to finally see some sunny weather the last few days!

The new sample I would LOVE to show you all is my Noah's ark invitation. What a cute and adorable theme for a baby shower or birthday especially if there are gorgeous twins being celebrated!

I had a lot of fun creating this invitation! The ark and animals are my own patterns and templates and I am rather proud of how it really came together!


The ark measures a massive 20x20 cms! Featuring hand drawn wood panels, clear acetate windows, the bough of the ark folds open to reveal the invitation wording and FOUR hand assembled animals with googley eyes!

And it has become quite popular as well!

The invitation wording features a poem I wrote:
The wording reads:
"Twice the blessing, twice the fun,
Two little miracles instead of one!
Two giggles and two smiles, two hearts filled with joy,
The stork is bringing two new bundles of joy!"

The animals featured are a giraffe, a pig, a lion and a hippo. Each have been created and assembled using various punches.


If you would love to have these invitations at your next party please feel free to contact me either via email or through my facebook page where you can view past works created.


For pricing or a quote please feel free to contact me. If you wish to have this invitation design customised with preferred animals or if you have another theme you are celebrating please let me know as I love the challenge of custom orders!
