Bunny Soaps are Here!!!

Bunny soaps have arrived! And they are rapidly multiplying.
They are a delicious combination of Jelly Bean Scent and Natural Goats Milk.
They are still the fantastic price of $5 and an awesome non chocolate easter gift. If you'd like some soapy bunnies to give this Easter let me know and I can surely sort something out for you :-)

Today I Made

Today I painted some rocks with some special words and hearts. Next time I will have to buy some for the boys to paint. 
The boys have already been playing with them, they love the words on them and love the feel of them.

A totally simple and fun activity for little ones ( and grown ones like me!) just a little paint and some rocks. They could be a really nice Easter project too, a lot of the rocks looked egg shaped and they could be painted up in fun coolers and then put in a sweet bowl or basket for display.

A Scrappy Share

There has been a little scrapbooking going on over here.It always makes my heart happy when I get to scrap!
 You Make My Heart Sing; I used some chalkboard paint on a piece of white card stock and am totally in love with it! So watch out for more to come ;-) There is also some hand painted hearts they were made with a mixture of water colour paints and acrylic paint, some doilies some gorgeous Heidi Swapp frames, a Martha Stewart punch or two and a few other bits and bobs.
Eight: This is Blake's birthday page I think most of the products on this page are from a studio calico kit. I loved that circle wood veneer and I even managed to sew through it!

Last but not least These Days: the background bee hive pattern is a mask I used from 'close to my heart' thanks to my friend Nell :-) There is a bit of old and new mixed in there too.
So there is my Scrappy Share for Wednesday, hoping your having a magical Wednesday!

Valentines Day

We had a sweet little Valentines Day.
I made some spelt chocolate muffins for the boys.

Decorated the table for a special valentines dinner with my little guys.

I'm still enjoying this cute valentines lady bug :-)
And ended the night with Paul and a chocolate fountain!

Today I Made

I've been needing a little pencil case and makeup case to pop in my handbag in the mornings. So instead of buying one I decided that I would use up some fabric and make them.

Just a simple little bag that has already come in handy. 

And keeps everything together instead of letting it float around in my handbag. 
Hope you had a lovely week and are enjoying your weekend!

Little Luke

We have had a traumatic few days.
Luke Had a large seizure at school and was rushed to hospital.
He is safe and happy and well now but these terrifying moments somehow change you. Obviously the appreciation of our happy little lives is overwhelming but also there will always be a closer eye and a more worried feeling there. Worried that he could have one at any time and that he might hurt himself when he has a seizure.

He is as he always has been the most loving little soul. We are recovering. And we will return to some kind of new normal.

Monday Moments

Some happy moments from the last few weeks.

Making a butterfly Mobile 

Scrapping away making a mess.

Having a tutu kind of day. Loving having some sparkles.

Loving this time of evening when the sun is setting.
Hope you had a lovely Monday :-)

Project life Week Three and Four

So here is week two and week three :-D

Week two was fairly uneventful and I hadn't taken many photos for it. Maggie Luke's blanket was captured and I'm glad because she (yes she!) is such a big part of our lives. She plays a big role in Luke's sensory needs and takes a lot of pressure off of me, it makes it much easier for him to be able to look after his own sensory needs rather than depend on me. Although there are times when he most certainly needs me, these times are lessened thanks to Maggie. He treats Maggie like a person, he tells her she is cute and talks to her, he always knows where she is, I think Maggie might even deserve a whole page soon ;-)

week three was an exciting week we had a new couch delivered and it was Blake's Birthday! This new couch has completely changed our day to day lives so much! Blake asked to go to the museum for his birthday with his cousin, he had a wonderful day! 
So I'm nearly caught up :-)

Project Life

I finally decided to give in and have two albums for this year, last year I did a mish mash of project life and scrap pages and my album is bursting at the seams. I know just how popular project life has become in Scrapbook Land, I figured let's just go with it this year and see how we go. I can honestly say that I am completely loving my PL album already and though I will still be scrapping pages because it is such a delicious way to capture moments, enjoy products and be creative but PL has a really nice flow to an album, it really tells your continuous life journey and it is simple- love that! 
So this is week one, left side above right side below.
I'm not so worried if I miss weeks or if I'm not always up to date I've already had moments with my boys looking through the past few weeks enjoying seeing what we've been up to. So much more to share, I've decided that I'm just going to be blogging from my ipad for a while, so I'm hopefully here more often, if the formatting isn't so perfect oh well, it will just be nice to be here :-)
