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
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 ;-)
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 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 :)
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....
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.
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
