Hello there. It's been a while. The last few weeks have been a little crazy. A combination of dance concerts and birthday parties and hot weather and fatigue. School finished yesterday and we begin our journey through 10 weeks of school holidays. I'm trying to embrace the concept of such a long break, we'll see how that goes.
There will be some changes to the blog eventually, nothing too major but I'm aiming for a bit more structure. I have some exciting collaborations on the boil, ever the one to have my finger in too many pies, and they will eventually come to fruition in their own way. Meanwhile, I'm working on some Xmas in July stock for my Etsy store and getting a real workspace setup so I don't have to keep putting the sewing machine away. Fingers crossed that it won't be too hot over the summer, need to work and we need to get out and enjoy the break. We have new bicycles which we're slowing learning how to ride and some family are coming to stay with us next week. Yay!
For now, I've compiled a few photos from the last week or so which have made me smile...
|I love this Family Tree they've created at school. Each child's name is on it.|
|Great window display at the bookshop. All made of paper.|
|Obligatory ice cream at the dvd library.|
|Carved out a corner for some Ikea desks. Drawers and shelves to come.|
|A journal for girls and their 'moms'. We are going to play with this through the summer.|
|I bought these gorgeous Rob Ryan plates but don't have the heart to take them out of the box and use them. Things seem to get chipped in this house. Maybe I'll hang them on the wall.|
|Quite happy with the way my snowmen are coming along.|
|Took this Grade 1 'graduate' out for pizza last night to celebrate.|
And now she's driving me nuts on the crappy keyboard I bought her to play with. Keeps trying to figure out the "Here comes the bride" song, lucky me.
