A Whirlwind Wait

Phew - it's been a whirlwind past couple of weeks.  While I should be resting and relaxing and nesting, it's actually been go-go-go!  And every night passes that I ask the little one to just wait one more day while I get this "last" thing organised.

Dear Husband had his wisdom teeth taken out.  I nearly cried when they wheeled him out of the hospital to the car (standard operating procedure).  He looked so.... operated on.  That was a couple of weeks recovery time.

Then we bought a new car (to fit the third car seat).

Then we sold our old car.

Then we bid on an apartment (and was successful!)

Then we organised financing and settlement.

As you can see, little bubs has been very patient.  She had dropped a couple of weeks ago, but then decided if she was going to wait then she would wait a little higher up probably where it is more comfortable (for both of us!).

In amongst all that, I've been trying to "nest".  But, I have to say that nesting and crafting really don't go hand-in-hand!  Especially when I've been using the bassinet as crafting storage for the past year.  Oh - where am I going to put all of the work-in-progress projects if not the bassinet?!?

Hmmm.... maybe I should try finishing them!

And so I present the first UFO now F!!! ("UnFinished Object now Finished" for those of you not up with the cra-lingo.)

It's the wristlet bag from You Sew Girl's book.


I'm working my way through the bags in the book.  The book is laid out so that each project builds on the techniques of the previous project.


And it's written in such an engaging way that it makes me want to sew!


Yep - sewing just to sew.

Seriously, I have no use for this bag!  I love the material - the outside is like a textured linen type thing.  And I love the style and shape - it just sits comfortably in your hand if you are holding it or dangles nicely from your wrist.  And the gorgeous button from Buttonmania...!

But I really don't need this bag... you want it?

Visions, Goals, Plans... Oh My

I'm a sucker.  And I've got an addictive personality.  And I rationalise and justify everything I do.  So, it's never a good idea for me to pick up a new hobby... aka addiction... unless it's truly good for me.

I picked up the capsule wardrobe thing... good.

I picked up the skincare/makeup thing... not so good ($$$).

I latched onto the no shampoo thing... good.

And now I'm onto the Kikki K thing... so NOT good.

I'm into it.  So so so into it.  My life can be soooo much better with the help of stationary and vision boards and stickers and pens and yep... workshops.

It's mid-year and I'm goal setting.  I've never been a believer in the New Year's Resolution movement, but mid-year goal setting... I'm all over that like a rash, baby.

I've "invested" in a planner so that I can live each day with purpose.



I've "invested" in a vision board so that I can keep motivated.



And I've attended a Goals Workshop so that I can…

Happy Birthday Little Miss M

I asked Little Miss M - Do you want to have your birthday at a play centre and you can invite lots of friends, or do you want me to plan an at-home party with just a few friends?

After all the fun that she had been having at her friends parties being held at a play centre, I was very surprised when Little Miss M opted for an at-home party.  Apparently, I'm loved because I plan the birthdays.


And so a birthday party was planned... A FURBY PARTY!!  Dah-Noh-Lah!  Party party!!

We had games...


A photo booth with props... (and we printed out the photos for the guests to take home)


We had cake...


And we sent the party guests home with a furby key chain, a photo from the photo booth and some homemade love...


Yes, I had to take a few days off from work to get everything done.
Yes, the Furby cake was filled with smarties and m&m's (not sure why we don't have a picture of it).  And I really don't want to think of how much butter was used to make the cake and the frosting!!

Growing up; growing together

My little girls are growing up.They’re catching up with each other, and then they’re racing away as they go through their developmental growth spurts.But whatever the case, they are growing together.And it’s the joy of my life.You know that feeling?When you’re just sitting there, watching, enjoying, with a goofy smile on your face.Yeah – that feeling.It’s awesome.


One day, after Little Miss M and Dear Husband had already left for the day, I was lounging around in bed – ok, I was wallowing in self-pity over my head cold.Before he left, I think Dear Husband had a quiet word to the two little one to let me rest.
And so they did.I heard some shuffling.I heard some whispering.I heard some furniture being moved around.I heard some “help please Ditse”.I heard some “Ssshhh, mama’s sleeping.”
Of course, who can resist that?I had to get up to see what was going on.And this is what I saw…

Little Miss Independence and Little Miss Independence-in-training.  Gee willie winkies – they’re clever, huh?
