A Late Night

Sleeeeep..... Sleeeep....

Sat up until 1.30 making cards for my DH's Godson, my best friend Jodie and my SIL birthdays. It wouldn't normally take all night to do this but I got a little distracted.

This is my SIL's card. The photo doesn't do it justice. I am still getting the hang of photgraphing my work.

This is the card for Jodie.

There is glitter in the middle of each flower and on the happy birthday sign.

This is the card for my DH Godson. Boys are so hard to make
cards for and 7 year boys seem even harder. Not really happy with the card but seing as it was his birthday yeasterday, I don't have time to do it again.
My New Year's resolution was to make all my friends a birthday card and send it on time! Not a very good start but I am ahead on the two birthdays at the end of the week.

My First Blog

This is my very first post.... Hope I don't bore you all silly!

My two children are tucked up in bed sleeping.... there are dishes to be done.... the toy room to be cleaned and a basket of ironing that I cannot jump over!!! But instead I am setting up a blog!!

The day started as any other day does at 3am.... James (18 mths) waking up and joining me in bed. I live for the nights that he stays asleep until 6 in the morning. Luckily for me he wnet back to sleep nestled up close to me. My DH is away in Melbourne for 4 nights and DS is not at all happy with this fact. Hayley (nearly 4) wakes at 6.30am and joins us in bed but the whinging starts so it isout of bed and down for a bottle, breaky and a strong cup of tea.

Go and pick up my sewing machine that has been in for a service and DS goes to sleep for 2 hours allowing me time to do some more on his quilt. I have only the quilting and the binding to do.

Go to my sister's house for a swim and a chat. Her 2 youngest look after the kids giving me some time out. Come home in peak hour traffic.... argh.. but he kids sleep and only wake up when we get home.

Cook dinner.... fish and chips.... have showers.... talk to Daddy on the phone .... and put the kids to bed.

Have 4 birthday cards to make and get in the mail tomorrow. So no early night for me. Will put pictures of cards onto sight as soon as I learn how to.

Love Chrissie
