Goodness it's been a while...

So much for my New Years resolution to blog at least once a month, I just can't believe how quickly this year is flying by, Miss 4 will be turning 5 and starting school before I know it. I have to say I'm very much looking forward to having 2 kids in the same place. 

I've set myself a scrapbooking goal, to have my 2013 Pocket page album finished by the end of May, in reality it's completely unachievable, but it has motivated me to find more time to craft, so I guess it has been successful. I have also had a change around in my craft space, I wish I had a room but I don't, so the corned of our bedroom has to suffice. Here's a picture of it.

Christmas countdown advent calender

Hi there,

At last, it's December, my absolute favourite time of year. I love everything Christmas, and thankfully so do my three girls and hubby gets into it too. I have a really bad habit of making christmas stuff as gifts but not finishing my own, so this year I made the effect do make things for my own family (me). I've had this kaisercraft advent calender kit in my draw for a couple of years and when I bought Teresa Collins' Santas List papers and add-ons, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. So here it is.
I have also entered this in the Simon Says Stamp and Artful crafts challenges.

Artful Crafts Heidi Swapp Challenge

I love all things Heidi Swapp, since meeting her and taking her class at CAD in May, I've been addicted. So when I saw that Artful Crafts had her on Centre Stage this month I was excited and had to participate. So here's my lay our featuring my eldest daughter, inspired by the sketch and using HS product.

Challenge time

Well so much for trying to post once a month, sorry I'm just not that great at this blogging thing, with 3 young girls there isn't much time between school, Kindy, gymnastics, soccer,swimming lessons and housework, I don't get a lot of "me" time. But this past weekend my DH gave me some time out to hang out with my BF and we even did a little scrapping. With decided to give the Scrappin Patch challenge a go.

scanned an old photo of my Mum on my new Canon scanner/printer, which I am loving. And used up some old Stampin Up DSP, the staple & masking I found most difficult to include (the butterflies are masked underneath).

Farewell card

One of the carers at daycare left recently, she had taken care of both Miss 3 & Miss 5 and was greatly loved by both. We will truly miss her. I made this card for her, it was cased but I apologise for not remembering where from.

Other than this card there hasn't been a lot of time for crafting as I've been helping out my in-laws, I have a friend coming over on Thursday night to scrapbook and I hope to finish off a couple of incomplete pages.

Happy belated Valentines Day

We don't usually go over board but this year I put a little surprise package in hubby's lunch bag ( photo below), along with a phot of our girls for his office. He came home with roses, wine & yummy Indian takeaways for dinner.
I had fun with the washi tape.
