  • thank-you Elsie for saying nice things about me. I hope you liked my gift! Love Emily.

  • Oh that’s so sweet! Yay for little Aussie artists! Keep it up Emily 🙂

    I wish blogs were around when I was 10. How cool would that have been?

  • Nothing like getting love mail from a child because they speak the truth. Glad to see you are inspiring people from all ages, my 5 year old Princess is already a scrapbook junky like her mama.

    Have a great weekend.

  • Looks like your having a very creative weekend there elsie!

    and i must say we love you very much in aussie, so keep it up!

  • Hi! just found your blog a little while ago and already checking it is a daily routine. You’re so talented, I can’t wait to see more of your beautiful art!

  • I loved seeing the Australia Post package in your Blog! Good to see we are proding some talent at a young age!

  • Oooh cute stuff! 🙂 Love how you’re hanging he ribbon, that’s such a good idea! She looks like a good little artist!

    Can’t wait to hear more about the online class 🙂



  • I used to play with those bead things a lot. Its so fun to make a picture with them and then iron it together. Cute stuff, can’t wait to see what you do with it!!

  • awesome awesome. I love the ribbon hanger.

    What a precious gift from Emily, your such an inspiration to all ages, all around the world! (even my 52 yr old Dad thinks your rad, yep)

    I’m looking forward to hearing more about the online class!!


  • I hope one of your classes talks about your photography! How you edit your photos, cameras you use, etc! We all love your pics! You inspire us every day!

  • Love all the pics. And Emily’s art is so pretty. How sweet of her to send it to you with a nice card too.

    I can’t wait to hear all about your online class. I’m excited!!!!

  • That is so awesome Emily, your art is really good!

    I agree with the others, cool home decor stuff!! I love the idea your friend has with the clipboards, I may do that in my loft when I move back.

  • Ooohhhh…exciting! Can’t wait to hear more about this online class!

    I received my Dreams art journal yesterday and already have ideas floating around in my head to put in it! Thanks so much! <3 it!

    (I was jumping around like a 6 year old when I saw the package in my husband's hands after getting the mail, lol)

    Love how you're hanging your ribbon! Great idea! Can't wait to see more of your home decor ideas also!

    Have an inspiring, happy & lovely Sunday!!!!

    xoxo -j

  • I hope you’ll show us what you made with the beads. My little 3 year old (!) loves doing those too. I can’t believe that she has the patience for it.

    The letter from Emily is awesome! Kids are the best.

  • …R those perler beads in the first photo??? my kids LOVE those things and they keep them busy for hours!! i love their little finished creations they make with them, i’m the lucky one who gets to iron them all the time ( and vacuum them up, find them in my couches, stick to my feet…. ) hahahaha!!!

    can’t wait to see what you make with them Miss Elsie!


  • I hope you consider doing an online class about photography! I love love love your photos- they are so inspiring! Would love to know what kind of camera and lens you use!

  • Elsie – you are just too cute for words! I would love to see what you’ve been up to with the Perler beads! My 6 year old daughter and I absolutely love them. Aren’t they utterly addictive?? 🙂

  • I love your package of goodies Emily! They’re wonderful!

    Can’t wait to hear more about your classes, Elsie!

  • I like that saying, thanks!
