Hello strangers....

Has it really been 5 months since I was last here? Seriously! It is just insane how fast time is going these days. My little guy has already turned 1! How did that happen? It feels like only yesterday he was still in my belly...

It has been sooo long since I last listed anything new for the shop as I have had a bunch of wholesale orders to fill which has taken up nearly all of my time. Not to worry though as I am sewing my little butt off to try and list a bunch of new pouches by the end of the week. There is LOTS in the making at the moment so make sure you check you the shop soon!
I have just listed my new range of fabric hand-bound books which I am SO excited about! Fingers crossed they do well as I would love to continue making these. I can finally put my love of fabric and notebooks together! A lot of love and time goes into these books so I hope that the person who might buy one loves it as much as I do!

Thanks for all who have hung around! I will try my hardest to post a little bit more frequently.

Love & Hugs

I was going a through a few of my bookmarks and came across another gorgeous picture of my little angel. I created a Tumblr account last year but didn't really get it so thought I would post it on here. I love reading through my blog every couple of months. It is amazing how quickly you forget moments. I wish I could keep an actual 'Journal' but it just doesn't feel the same as an online one where I could look back at photos :)

This is just another small moment which I can keep and look back at.

From 17th October 2009

Today you played in front of the TV, I still think your eyes are going to turn square

but you look so cute sitting there with your daddy watching the sport.

What are you thinking when you watch them hit the ball the ball from side to side?

I’m not sure, but, you enjoy it, whatever makes you happy. All I want is my precious angel to be happy.

I love you my sweet baby Jacob

Happy New Year!

I know I know, it's nearly February and i am only now wishing you all a happy new year... Well it is better late then never right??

Life feels like it just keeps getting better. Jacob is now 6 months and I feel like we have FINALLY established a routine that works!! I have tried so many to only have it all go through the window in a week. Before now, I don't even think I could have called it a routine, lets just say, it was 'chaotic', seriously. I think most days I was running on about 4 hours of sleep thinking, 'Yeah I am tired but I have so much to do'... Well I learnt it the hard way... I ended up burning myself to the ground and was no good to anybody... I ended up crying at everything, poor hubby, everytime he would come home and say 'How was your day' it would turn into me crying without even being able to say a word! Ick, it was awful. But, things feel better now, I just have to remember that i am no good to anybody if I can't take care of myself!

Over the past week I have spent a lot of time doodling.. It is insane how it relieves stress, I now go to sleep thinking of things to doodle when I wake up... weird... I scanned a page which I did late last night, not the best but it was fun.
I would love to some day turn some doodles into fabric.

Last night I brought a SUPER COOL book from Amazon, It is called 'Doodling for Papercrafters'. It looks like a bunch of fun doesn't it!?

In other news, the shop has a few new goodies. I have added some new passport covers and pencil cases, a few were only one offs and they went quickly! I will try and post here next time I have some 'one only's' so you can take a peek before everyone else!

In other 'oh so exciting news' my super awesome sister is coming back from the UK in a couple of weeks!! As I will have a spare pair of hands it will mean that the pile of fabric sitting next to me should be able to be finally be touched! Most of the new stuff is going to be passport covers, I love making these covers... I was hoping to make some note book/journal covers but I am yet to make the decision...

Ok gotta fly as the little man is waking! love you all!
