Busy, busy, busy!

Busy, busy, busy! That definitely describes my life right now. Busy weekend as we were out 3 of the 4 nights of the long weekend then on Tuesday we got to visit our brand new 'neice' Layali (isn't that a beautiful name?) - 2nd daughter of our fab friends N & Z. She is so tiny and cute and almost exactly the same weight etc as our little guy was born at.

And speaking of new babies - here are some of pics of photo album gifts I have been making recently for the new babies in our lives:

Hopefully I have some time to do some more crafting next week as we are off to visit my sister and her family this weekend.

Polka Dot Party and My New Love

One of the things I love about the internet world is finding new and interesting blogs to read. Amanda from The Homely One is a woman after my own heart. Her fantastic blog details the craft and home projects she undertakes - her kitchen renovation I can only dream about.

Recently she threw a polka dot themed party for her daughter Grace's First Birthday:

I especially love the bunting and the party bags. The birthday girl also wore a gorgeous green polka dot dress to complete the theme.

Now onto my new love:

The armchair was picked up today with the help of my generous sister and has prime position in our (almost) empty dining room. Slowly but surely we are getting there. Next step I think will be new curtain rods for the lounge and dining rooms. I already have curtains for the dining room ready to hang but need to organise some for the lounge and have found the perfect fabric at Lincraft.

Off to a 30th birthday party tomorrow and hopefully a nice dinner out on Monday with my boys.

Happy weekend everyone.

I'm Still Here!

It's been a while since I have posted. Lots going on at the moment - few health scares with people close to us, a brand new gorgeous little neice Charlotte and a very demanding one year old. Plus something else very exciting (well for me!) that I've been working on and hope to have up and running with very shortly.

Last week I did manage to visit the new Gymboree store at Westfield Parramatta with the little guy in tow and am happy to say it did not disappoint. Master E will continue to have Gymboree pieces forming a large part of his wardrobe.

As promised weeks ago here are the full pics of the two Personalised Canvas Boards with Mini Pegs I made for some birthdays recently:

Hope to be back to regular blogging this week.
