I love home grown cherry tomatoes

I planted 8 cherry tomato seedlings about 6 weeks ago and now they're growing taller than the house!
I have NEVER successfully grown anything before (I forget to water things - apparently that's a problem), but these have taken off and are fruiting so madly that every meal includes cherry tomatoes in some form at the moment.
I've been making some fabulous tarts with caramelised onion, cherry tomatoes and olives, and I did a Donna Hay chicken meal that I'll definitely photograph next time because, my God, it was just delicious, and really easy.
So there's my boast for today. I can grow something.
Now, back to sewing labels on teatowels, ready for packaging.

My Teatowels are here!

I feel like I've been talking about it for absolutely years, but finally my first batch of screenprinted teatowels have arrived!
They're hand printed on 100% natural linen teatowels measuring 50 x 70cm (nice and big) and I'm really happy with how they turned out. The lovely Thea from Thea & Sami printed them and professionally heatset them for me.
One design is 'In Bloom' printed in spring green, and the other is 'Coffee and Cake' printed in a special lilac. They'll sell for $20 each + postage.
I'm finalising packaging now, while I add to my www.shinyhappyart.com website which is so close to going live.
So it's all systems go now! It's going to be a busy week.

Easter Holidays

We're holidaying on the Gold Coast for the week, so will be taking a break
from blogging until we get home. Hope you've all had a lovely time!
