Getting Ready

So things have been abit slow with us over the past couple of months.  Mel had her baby a little boy, they are over the moon, it is keeping them very busy.  Michelle has been busy working and I have been busy with homeschooling I have three to to teach now.  Now it is starting to get warmer we have decided to venture out and about to some markets.  Our husbands are all for it, as last year everytime we had a market planned it rained so much we couldn't get out :-)  Hopefully this time we will have better luck.  We have decided to only do local area markets this year and maybe branch out to other areas next year... 

Our first Market is this weekend, the Surat Fathers day market.  Surat is a lovely little town and a great community and we enjoyed our last market there.  Nanny and Poppy are coming to visit the girls, they are so excited they are counting down the sleeps.  We are also mustering at the moment so it is a busy time for us on the property. 

We are have some new kits in progess and am looking forward to showing them to you all very soon. 

Bush Christmas in Toowoomba is coming up again very fast, so I have been busy getting things ready for this as well.  It is a wonderful event and well worth visiting.  I will post more about this years Bush Christmas as it gets closer.

This little angel is one of our new kits, she is a mini version of our bigger feather angel decoration kit, she would be great as a decoration or a magnet for on the fridge.

Have a great week.

Our house this week

A little bit of creativeness has been going on in our house this week.

The girls helped me with some paper gift bags.  We now have quite a healthy stash of these.  The girls like helping with these, as they are so quick and easy to make, they saving wrapping presents and look great.

Also been catching up on lots of schoolwork and are looking forward to the school holidays.

Have a great day.

Creative morning

Big E has been creative this morning.  She made me this little paper plate bird.

It is amazing the enjoyment children get from playing with a few items and some glue.

Have a great weekend.

Another hot day here for us.  The past few days have been hot, and thanks to a bush fire, smokey. 

We have all been so busy, these past couple of months, nothing much has been happening on the craft front.  We hope to get our crafting mojo back soon.

Isn't it amazing how quickly this year is going, so much has happened already, its hard to stop and catch a breath.  Tomorrow will be March and I am still trying to get myself organised for the year.  I think I will just give up and go with the flow.

Back Again

What a Christmas break we all had.  With rain, floods and isolation, it has been a very interesting break, but we are all excited and ready to start the new year off with lots of fresh ideas for kits.   Lisa's internet has been down and is still down and so i have taken over the task of blogging.  Hopefully i will manage to update our blog at least twice a week.

Take Care,
