Scrappy Share

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

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 :-)
