Advent Day 2

The boys had an awesome time making cards for some special loved ones,
There was glitter and glue everywhere, some stamping and even some stars were glued on.

Advent Day 1

Today was all about Santa letters. Blake spent the morning colouring in his letter then writing down exactly what he wants
There was much excitement about the arrival of two elves, this one Zap they are not allowed to touch so they also have one that they love to play with.
Hope you had a magical day :-)

Christmas Tags

Inspired by my beautiful friend Emma, today I made some Christmas advent tags.

I've hung them up in a row and the boys are going to add one to the tree each day. They also have an advent activity for each day. Are you getting organised for Christmas ?

Christmas Soaps

Finally I have some Christmas Soaps!
I am love love loving these reindeer soaps with there glowing noses, antlers and jingle bells. They smell super sweet too, cranberry and fig! 
Then I've made some Stary Sleigh Ride Bar Soaps. These smell like candy canes with a hint of Christmas pudding. 
I've been having some technical problems on the heart flutters shop, it should be updated and fixed tonight!

What's happening??

Hi there :-)
Thought I would pop in and share a few things that have been happening here in the last few weeks.
I turned 30, Paul spoiled me with a beautiful birthday party.
I've been crocheting up a few Christmas gifts.
We've been pushing Luke out of his comfort zone and taking him out different places to eat, so far he is doing really well. 
We took Blake to the Christmas pageant, he spent the whole time on Paul's shoulders and loved it!
Celebrating my beautiful SIL's birthday .
And stitching up a flock of birds for Christmas! 
So that's what's been happening here lately :-)

Scrappy Share

These are some pages I did on a recent Scrapping Retreat run by my friend Nell :-)

Monday, 7 October 2013


Over the weekend  a baby sitter was arranged (my mum is our only babysitter and at the moment it is a near impossible feat to get her to babysit, she is always so busy) and my man and I had some time together.
It was so nice to have his undecided attention. I'm turning 30 this month and I wanted to get a dress for my party, he spent 3 hours so patently helping me find a dress. Hes so awesome!
 The next day I managed to get some sewing time in and whipped up a few teabag wallets

Today I spent some time creating a scrapbook wall for Luke's birthday. I have some gaps I need to fill, may be I will do some mad scrapping tomorrow on top of cake making and decorating ready for Luke's birthday on Wednesday

Today I've been whipping up some gingerbread men

Yep I'm already sorting out things for Christmas. Our theme this year is JOY ( to all the boys and girls)! I'm so looking forward to sharing now soon :-)


My little guy had speech and OT. He spit the chewy half way through and it took a whole lot of extra effort to get him back on track. 
We are working on a lot of behavioural stuff at the moment, pushing him to do more results in more tantrums and that can be exhausting at times. It will be worth it in the end though, least that's what I keep telling myself ;-)


On Wednesday I spent most of the day making a new Maggie for Luke's birthday .

He chews on his Maggie and so it has gotten kinda disheveled, he loves he anyway but I think it's time for a new one, 
I'm happy with how it turned out, hopefully this one lasts a little longer. 


I've been playing with soap again, this time lavender scented with a heart embed. I'm loving it, it's bright and pretty and a little sparkly. The bottom layer is goats milk with the top two glycerine. I'm calling this one luscious lavender.
I've also been coming up with some Christmas soap ideas but you'll have to wait for them ;-)


I had wanted to post all of this week, so I'm going to pretend that I did and catch up.
This weekend we did something we have never done before.... We went out for lunch just the four of us! It was really a bit of a test to see how Luke would go and he did very well. He was a little distracted by all the different noises but he coped very well. When we got home the boys spent most of the afternoon riding there bikes up and down the street. It was so... Normal. It's the simple things :-)

Just scrapping

Just thought I would check in today with a little scrappy share. 
Some of my favorite 'on my table' photos all things that make me happy.
I still have a few New York pictures to scrap, I've actually put all of my holiday photos into a project life album  and then scrapped some of my favorites. I will have to share a little with you sometime :)
Hope your having a happy little Friday!

Make and Take: Paper Flowers

Secretly over here I am hoping to at some point start some children's craft classes. In my biggest happiest dreams I would love to own a scrappy, fabricy crafty store, a place where people can come to make. I'm all about making ;-) A place that makes your heart flutter. May be I am crazy, but its pretty much all Ive ever wanted to do. If only I could turn off the big Miss Scaredey Cat inside of me and get over all my crazy fears I might actually get somewhere. Anyway for now I thought Id share a cool idea for some....
Paper Flowers
 So there would have to be patty pans, tulle and doilies in those flowers.
 There would be a lot of layering, scrunching, inking and cutting.
And then you would have something that can look cute on your table. 
Hope your having a Happy Thursday
What are you dreaming about doing??

Make and Take: Itty Bitty Notes

Hi there, Sorry for the blogging break it wasn't intended but life did get in the way. We had a death in the family, I got sick and well a whole pile of other stuff happened too.
Now that I'm here I thought I would start sharing some things that have been on my mind lately.
So today I am sharing some little 
Note Books
 I love the idea that you can simply whip up something that will be useful to you and also cute.
 And may be even use some of that stash of papers that you have.
 These little notebooks are fantastic for popping into your handbag or even keeping on your bedside for all those amazing ideas you are thinking about right before you close your eyes.
 I've simply sewn the writing paper into the cover, Ive added some pockets and things in some of them
And there you have it, cute to boot little note books!
These would be great for writing in all those ideas you have for Christmas and Christmas presents so you don't forget them closer to the date!

I am quickly popping in tonight to apologise for not being here Sunday when I said I was going to draw the winner for the set of soaps. Blake drew the winner, it was Lisa Bugg, a facebooker. I'm so sorry that it took me so long to check in here! xxx
