To Market To Market

We are off to Surat Fathers Day Markets this weekend.  This will be our first market for this year.  Now the weather is growing warmer we have decided to do a few markets to end off the year.
Surat is a lovely little country town about 1 hours drive away.  It is a great community, we enjoyed our visit to our last lot of markets there last year. 

I have been laid low the past couple of weeks with this nasty flew that won't go away.  But we solider on.  Emeline woke up with it this morning so I hope she doesn't get it as bad as what I have had it.  It has certainly drained all my energy.

I have also been busy making my felt decorations, here are some of the latest.

Have a great week.

I am so sorry dear friends for being absent for nearly 2 weeks, we are a little overwhelmed with everything that is going on at the moment, I'm afraid I don't even know where to start, I feel like I am just treading water, getting things done but not really moving forward.   August, September and October are probably our busiest months on the property along with schooling etc...  It doesn't leave much time.

The girls and I spent the last few days in Charleville for the School of Airs Sports Cluster Muster.  The girls had so much fun catching up with their friends and learning new sports they are exhausted but estatic.

The girls at the school disco waiting for some dinner with their bestest friends (4 blonde princesses).  They were wearing these handbands with butterflys that flash bright blue lights, very cute, but very distracting on the eyes.  They were sad to have to leave their friends and come home, luckily it is only a short time till mini school where they will see each other again.  They get to talk to each other on air, so cute.

I have been making some inchies (1"x1" square) for some swaps..  These are what I have managed so far.  I must say, these are quite addictive once you start making them and the girls like making them to.

Have a great day.

Good Morning

Good Morning all, yes I am up bright and early this morning.  I have been up since about 4.00, the dogs woke me barking at a wild pig that has been coming around the house in the early hours of the morning, mmmm.  Might have to do something about that.  So I have been busy doing some tidying and enjoying the peace and tranquility before the girls wake up.

We have had a busy week this week, I am in a few swaps at the moment so have been busy trying to fit those in between everything else.

We made some more ATC's these ones are for a Stampin Up monthly swap I am in, the theme was Christmas, I don't have any Christmas stamps yet, so I did what I could with what I had.  Are they Christmasy enough?

I have also joined up to do a beginners art journal swap and some inchie swaps.  Thought I might try and give something different that I have been wanting to do for a couple of years now a go.  Swapping seems to give me the motivation that I need to get things done.

The girls have also been busy helping, here is an envelope that Em made.

I just adore these ladies that she draws, have to love those lips.  Wish I had lips like those :-)

I have also been slowing posting pictures of the beautiful stationary I received in Creative Collectives Snail Mail Swap.  So here are the photos of the goodies I received, I was very spoilt.

So many goodies, some are too pretty to use, the girls and I just like looking.

Have also manage to squeeze in some stitching time there is only three months to go till Bush Christmas and I have a couple of very busy months ahead with school stuff, so I am trying to get as many decorations done as I can.  Haven't taken any photos yet, but will post some soon.

Thanks for visiting.

Have a fantastic weekend
