The Kiddies have FINALLY settled in!!!!

Well i woke up a few minutes later this morning with a feeling of impending doom in my stomach. Today was the first day back in school after the weekend and from the last 2 weeks experience i would say that i HATE Monday mornings! But not today......on kids decided to surprise by waking up with smiles on their faces. My daughter spent the whole 45 minutes saying "mummy i want to go to playgroup NOW!" and my son who normally spends the same 45 minutes telling me he's not going to school said nothing at all (which i take as a good sign). So i spent the 45minutes in a frantic mess trying to get them ready and out the door and surprisingly we were on time!

I dropped the little lady off first as i always do and as we drove away she waved out the window with a HUGE smile on her face and before we were even gone she was gone to play with her little Pals. Then i took the little man to his school and as we walked around to his class there was silence between us. I felt that all was not good but we went into his class and he sat in his chair. I said to him "ok i'm going now little man" and he just said "Ok bye mommy"!

My babies have become children and have taken their first little steps to letting me go. It's not a nice feeling but it isn't a bad one either. I've realised that my babies have become children and are some day going to be adults and it's bitter sweet. I'm beginning to think that i am the one who is going to have problems letting go!

Killing Facebook??

I heard some very worrying news today! Apparently a hacking group called anonymous is planning to take down facebook in November......... a related article can be found here.....

While I understand that we're all human and have a cause, this really concerns me as a business trying to take flight. I just opened a facebook page and my fan base is steadily rising. November, when they plan to do it, is just before Christmas and the busiest time for ALL retail business. If the big guys are gonna be affected by this what about us little guys who are using Facebook as our main way to network and grow our little businesses!!!!!! How will this affect us:o(

Great News!

Seeing as my store is Brand Spanking New i've decided to have a 10% off sale on all of my items as a thank you gesture to all of my new fans! Take advantage guys cos it ends on the 26th of August when my baby girl officially starts playschool:o) Remember, there is also free shipping on all items in my zibbet store!

There is a link directly to my store in the zibbet badge:o)


Time really does fly by!

I can't believe it! My baby boy is starting school in 13 days and my baby girl is starting playschool in 6 days:o( Where did the last 4 years and 11 months go!!!! I was playing with both of them here yesterday and i started getting really sentimental. I kept getting little pictures in my head of the days that they were born and it REALLY DID FEEL LIKE YESTERDAY. I try to cherish every single second with them even when they're giving out to me ........which happens quite a bit.....LOL, but it seems the more time that goes by the faster the time starts to go. Somebody told me that when they start school that's when the time REALLY starts to fly by. My mornings will be quiet and i will find PLENTY to do but i'll miss the little laughs. But then they'll be home in the afternoons and i'll be wondering why i wrote this.......LOL!

For all you new mummys, cherish the nightfeeds and the constant nappy changes and the winding and all the things that are HARD work because your time will fly by too and even though it doesn't feel like it now, because you feel half dead, but you will genuinely miss these things when you're babies are no longer babies..........but preschoolers!

Busy Busy Busy!

Ok so this week I've been taking on the world and losing miserably:o( I'm trying to get everything in order and it's really hard. Sometimes i wish i hadn't taken the year off cos i really feel like I'm starting again. I started a new Facebook fanpage and i'm trying to find out how to attach it to my blog amongst other things. I'll work it out..........eventually!

Anyway, on a lighter note i've been busy making more stuff and I have a great photographer in the states who's gonna take pictures of them on actual babies so that's really positive because then people will have a better ida of what they're buying. It was never gonna work with my photography skills! I'm attaching a pic of one of my masterpieces......enjoy!

Going to start working on building up a few tutorials on this blog so you guys have something useful from coming here. Chat soon.......

I'm getting there!

SO i've been working on some new designs, i have my craft room organised and I've just opened my new Zibbet store......yipee!!! I also sell with etsy but i'm finding that it's so saturated over there that it's really not worth my while anymore:o( Everytime i list something it just gets drowned out within the first few minutes so that's the reasoning for me trying Zibbet.

So as i said i've been working on new designs and i really love them so i hope other people think so and buy them! Let me know what you think:o)

What a Year..........PHEW!!!!

So I decided that that's it...............i'm blogging again:o) I'm a whole year older and i CAN'T BELIEVE that i haven't done this since January 2010! I had the craziest year ever. I got married last September and I spent most of the year preparing for that. I made everything and I mean EVERYTHING related to my wedding (well slight exageration cos i didn't make the clothes). My crafting craze really helped me out. I had so much fun doing it. I'd love to do someone elses wedding cos it was such a pleasure. I sat down on the day of my wedding and I couldn't believe all that i had done. And talk about saving money! I don't understand where all the high price tags come from when the word "wedding" is mentioned. I did it for a fraction of the price and i had the BEST DAY EVER...........and some of my guests said it was the best wedding they were ever at.........which was an added little pleasure in itself:o)

Anyway, I've decided that this blog is gonna contain everything there is to know about being me.......a stay at home mom with a passion for making stuff. Unfortunately with the year that i gained I also gained 24lbs so i'm on a mission to try and lose that. SHould make for interesting reading!

Until the next time,
