Scrapping: The Week Thats Been

I can't believe how quickly this year is going, the weeks are just flying by! I'm slowly starting to get organised for Riley's birthday, its hard to believe that he'll be 4 in a couple of short months. He's mad about birthday's at the moment as I've had one recently and there have been a couple at Kindy. All he wants is a chocolate birthday cake and for Mummy, Daddy and Uncle James to sing Happy Birthday to him, how sweet is that?

September will also be the last month of DET 13. I have signed up for the contest again though, so hoping I get to be a part of DET 14. Its been heaps of fun and a real learning experience.

Anyway, here are a couple of my layout's from last week:

My Creative Space

There's not a lot going on in my creative space at the moment ....
We have my brother staying with us and with my sewing room being our only 'spare' room, that's where hes sleeping which unfortunately doesn't leave much room for me.

I did manage to squeeze in there at the weekend though before he got too comfortable and whip up a hot water bottle cover for Riley. He was getting really cold at night with all the snow around and he'd been using Phil's hot water bottle so I thought it was about time we got him one of his own. He chose the colour and needless to say he loves it.

Scrapping: The Week Thats Been

We're back from holiday now and back to reality. Riley is back at Kindy today and he seemed happy enough to be there, I never really can tell with him.

My brother is now working in Christchurch so we have him staying with us at the moment while he looks for a place. Riley is loving having him here. Me? Not so much since hes taken over my sewing room and I can barely squeeze in there with all his stuff.

Anyway, here are some of my layouts from last week:

Scrapping: The Week Thats Been

Still on holiday .... and it snowed in Wellington! It was so bizarre and unfortunately coffee group was cancelled because of it. There's more snow in Christchurch too and I'm just hoping that the roads are all clear by Thursday so we can make it home.

Here are a couple of layouts from last week that I managed to get done in between doing nothing much (isn't that what you're supposed to do on holiday?):

Back Soon ....

I'm not sure how often I'll be able to get on here over the next couple of weeks as I have limited internet access because .... we're on holiday!!

I'm sure I'll have lots to share with you all once we're back home.

My Creative Space: Cloth Baby Rings

Check out this sweet little baby toy, perfect for little hands!

My sewing machine can be a bit temperamental at times so what should have been a nice, relaxing bit of afternoon sewing turned into a HUGE nightmare. I finally got there after a lot of growling and unpicking and considering the trouble I had I'm pleased with the result.

Scrapping: The Week Thats Been

Woohoo I've survived the school holidays! They actually went really fast probably because I've been so busy organizing things for our holiday (which is 3 days away now). Riley isn't back at Kindy though as I don't see the point in getting back into routine just for 3 days and I don't want him catching any nasty bugs right before Phil's brothers wedding! Hes still a snot monster as it is ....

Here are a few of my layouts from last week:
