oh oh!

Published by under sewing

I found this link to this cute nappy clutch. I remember when I had my first child I lugged the biggest nappy bag around, it almost held her whole wardrobe!  When number 5 came along, I carried a bottle bag stuffed with nappies, wipes and an outfit. Now instead of an ugly blue bag, I could make my own, in any colour I wanted. I suppose I should settle on making one for someone else, as no one wears a nappy around here any more :C

Another Swap

Published by under Uncategorized

Ok, so some how my blog site wasn’t left at the last swap, so I missed out on the Nancy drew one, so….. I have joined a different one. Why don’t you join me? Pin cushions are not that difficult to make, so even if you are a newy to sewing, you could cope with this one. An excuse to buy some cute fabric? Any how, here is the link.http://foxslane.blogspot.com/2010/03/lets-get-swapping.html

I still haven’t got any room to put my own photos onto my computer…”Jared, darling, I need your help”. Evidently I can put my photos onto the playstation, but hey, do I really have to figure it out? That’s what intelligent men are for isn’t it? Jared told someone a couple of nights ago that he is around for killing spiders (the girls actually do that, for $5 a pop), and to pay the bills. How sad does that sound?, I could say that he has another purpose, but he is needed for so much more, we would be lost without him, we love him 😀 Oh, and it is good that he does the above stuff too!

Take it Seriously.

Published by under Uncategorized

I know people will think that I am over reacting, but please, take this seriously. I was delighted to hear that my son, has made some new friends at school, they even have the privilage of being in a locked room to have privacy while they play some card games. Of course I asked him what the game was called, he didn’t know, he just talked as they played. Today he finally asked what the game was called “Magic”, oh but it is just monsters, not magic I was told. Today we used the internet to look up the game. I wanted to cry. The author of the game use to play “Dungeon and Dragons”, we were looking at the cards, and I could see my son’s colour drain from his face. He knows that it is wrong, that the game is not God honouring, that it is all about the occult. We looked up Deuteronomy 18: 10-12 and Acts 13:10. Now he will need to make a decision, he tells me that he will do something about it.

A Nightmare

Published by under Uncategorized

I have run out of space on my computer memory, I can’t even download my pictures, argh! Can you hear the steam coming out of my ears?I am a monster!

At the moment I am watching Wife Swap, I love this show, it makes you evaluate how your own family is going.

Check out these gorgeous cookies, do I see a Jane Austen party coming on?

My house is needing some helpers, do you think these will help?Tonight Lachlan stepped on Cassandra’s glasses, they are now broken. I went out for an hour, and this is what happens when mum doesn’t put them away, Argh! Now I get to go out tommorow, to get them fixed.

The Childhood I Never Had.

Published by under Uncategorized

What am I talking about? Reading Nancy Drew of course! I have never read one of her books, but after reading this swap, http://perfectisboring.blogspot.com/2010/02/2nd-annual-nancy-drew-swap.htmlI thought that I would take up the challenge. I have choosen “Trails of Treachery”, there wasn’t much of a choice at the local library. Are these books for nine year olds, or do I have a junior edition? Nevertheless, I will look forward to making a little pack to send to someone, hohum, I must have too much time on my hands I hear you say.

Today I recieved a call asking me to give some ideas about a children’s  nation wide program. Just ideas, but I was very excited anyway. I have started to brainstorm, and so I am giddy with ideas. I don’t necessarily know how to implement my ideas, but someone else might be inspired to work it out, we will see.See this regular looking couch? I have been kicking myself that I missed an opportunity. I saw this couch in red, at Moe for only a couple of hundred dollars, but I walked on. Look what it becomes, it would have been so handy.Regrets, sigh..

meanwhile my son is counting the days down until holidays, now there are 17 days left of school.
