Once again Easter is here and our house is full of chocolate!!
Erin and I got together last week for some crafting and we wanted to do some Easter Craft … I had some cute little chicks from a Spotlight Sale and remembered a bird box template I had from Nichole Heady. It was a little tricky for the younger kids, but Annalise and Grace were only too happy to help … and they ended up making a whole batch. They turned out so cute!
Friday night I attended the Life’s Artistry class with Donna Downey. It was so much fun!!
And because the girls were at a Girl Guide Camp and the boys were at my Mum’s, it meant that I had some studio time on Saturday morning to work on the album we started. I watched Breakfast at Tiffany’s (twice) and I do believe that it was one of my favourite crafting mornings ever!! Here are the pages that are finished so far …
I’ve been making calendars for family members for a few years now … this year I decided to go very simple … and they still weren’t sent until the new year had already started.
Yesterday I decided that I needed a photo for my calendar … so after a trip to the post office, we stopped in a field and went for a walk. It wasn’t until we got home and I looked at the photos that I realised how tall my eldest daughter had gotten. She has been telling me recently that she’s catching up to me … but I’ve refused to listen and really notice. I’ve never even considered the fact that my children might one day grow to be taller than me … somehow I don’t think I’m going to like it …
Today I printed my own blog book (135 pages) which covers the past two years of my creative journey. This is such a good idea .. I lost a couple of years worth of blogging recently due to my husband changing servers .. he did a backup, but for some reason I haven’t seen that blog since .. very sad about that!! At least I now have a pdf backup .. and for only $7.95 (digital download version) .. what a bargain!!

I hope you had a very lovely Christmas Day like we did … of course I can relax now … because I’ve stopped making Christmas Cards and Decorations …

I received a parcel from Spain … as part of the New Zealand Handmade Christmas Ornament Swap … thank you so much Judit for my beautiful handmade Christmas Decoration … and the gorgeous card too … I love them both!
And I went to the post office yesterday and posted my parcel to Judit.
I was so happy to be introduced this week to Judit, from Pilgrim of the Moon … as my partner in the New Zealand Handmade Christmas Ornament Swap. Judit has some of her awesome work for sale on Etsy.com. My favourite piece is called “Innocence” .. simply stunning. Now I have to get busy making a handmade christmas decoration to send to Spain.
