Train Your Brain with These 3 Great Apps

We’ve all heard it said before: using our phones too much can numb our brains and dull the senses. Our phones can sometimes seem more like a distraction than a tool to help productivity, but it can actually be the opposite. You just have to be using the right apps. There were 1.3 million apps on Google Play, and 1.2 million apps on the iTunes App Store in July of 2014, and this number continues to increase significantly. App developers are continually pushing to make more innovative games, tying together different elements of gameplay to create new experiences for users. […]

A lot is growing

Over the past few days I have been working consistently on the site. It’s brighter and better organised. I’m a bit of a tinkerer and will continue to work behind the scenes as the days roll by. Meanwhile, Bump to Baby is nearly ready for printing! We have just a few more specifications to run through and soon we will have copies in our hot little hands. I will be sure to update you all on where to find the cards. For now, know that we are busy getting it sorted and soon fruits and vegetables will be counting down […]

A Pregnancy Countdown and Art Prints

The Birth of Bump to Baby Over 12 months of preparation it’s finally here! Bump to Baby: A creative hand painted pregnancy countdown. A fun, beautiful way to follow baby’s growth. A unique gift. Part art, part journal. It started with a conversation, when my friend was 14 weeks pregnant. She told me her baby was the size of a lemon. I found this fascinating, from that point on I knew I wanted to create something special. So I set to work finding more about this fruit and vegetable comparison phenomenon. Baby lemon, he is now 8 months, these cards […]

5 Simple Ways to be Creative

How do I be creative? Let me count the ways… Creativity is something that’s innate within us all, yes, it may be more dormant in some than others though let me assure you it is there. I can relate this to my recent experience with abdominal muscles, “abs”. I find it hard to believe I have these “abs” and yet under the layers of body padding I know they are there. I know they are there because despite not being able to see them, I feel them when I crunching! So there you have it, linking “abs” with “creativity”. These are 5 things […]

Let’s do something new

“I tried to be normal once. Worst 2 minutes of my life.” This quote appeals to me, and as a budding stand up comedian, I wish I’d said it first. So I did the next best thing, I appropriated it and made it my own (Super Jen points to image on the left). Some credit the quote to “Unknown”, and others to Ziad K. Abdelnour. Either way,  after looking at the photo on Wikipedia I had a chuckle and I found out bad hair days don’t discriminate. Now back to the topic of stand up comedy. People often say that I’m funny. I like being […]

Strawberry Watermelon Cake

Strawberry Watermelon Cake

I love this cake so much it was my wedding cake. When I found the recipe on Google it was destined to be created in my kitchen. The original recipe is by Black Star Pastry and I found it on Gourmet Traveller. Two of us were in the kitchen for this, and it took a while to complete. I am keen to make it again to refine the Thermomix component of the recipe so it’s easier and more efficient. In the end, it was a very satisfying creation, and so delicious. The recipe below has been modified slightly (I found I didn’t need […]
