Busy times...

Well, it's been another busy week, it just never seems to slow down! I can't believe how fast this year is's only about 10 weeks until Christmas! All the decorations are starting to appear in the stores and the madness will be upon us before we know it.

This year I'm going to try and keep to handmade Christmas gifts where I can. Hahahahaa, I hear you laugh...who has the time? I will probably look back in about 9 weeks and wonder what happened to my resolve. But I'm going to try.

There have been so many things going on baby turned 9 yesterday (how did that happen?) and my oldest baby is preparing to run off to Canada for an indefinite amount of time. She is leaving in early December to work in a ski resort, so she will be enjoying a white Christmas away from family this year. :( It will be an amazing experience for her and I'm a little bit jealous, I must admit.

I recently finished this gorgeous dress for an equally gorgeous little girl, I can't wait to see it on her.

As the month is fast coming to an end, it won't be long before I'll be at the Upper Market again in Upper Coomera. Keep Sunday, 6th November in your calendar and pop in, if you are anywhere nearby. There are always fantastic stalls there...great time to start on the Christmas shopping! ;)

Take care, until next time.

As you can see, blogging isn't something that I do regularly! To be honest, I spend WAY to much time on Facebook and never seem to get around to updating my blog. O.o) But I thought it was about time I made an effort to post at least semi regularly...I'm going to try for once a week and see how I go.

Life has been full of changes for us recently. This past few months has been full of ill health and injury for me and I've found myself no longer working part time...whether this is a long term change or not, I've yet to find out. I've also found myself home schooling my gorgeous son. Z is nearly 9 years and is Aspergian (for those not acquainted with this term, it means he has Aspergers Syndrome, a high functioning type of Autism). He really struggles with school and needs constant one-on-0ne support, which he unfortunately wasn't receiving from school, so I have decided to take on the role of teacher for him. It is quite a juggling act but we are slowly getting into the swing of it.

I am still working towards my Diploma in Creative Writing (very slowly!) and doing little bits of writing here and there. Once I've learned to manage my time better (translated, this means staying of Facebook!) I will allot myself a regular time slot to work on assignments and any other writing that comes up. I have 2 possible stories/novels in my head...I just need to get them down on paper!

As well as all of this, I am now trying to focus more time on my family and business. If I am to continue to be a stay at home Mum, I really need to get my business moving from hobby business to making a viable income.

So, that's what's been happening here lately, hopefully I will find the time to stick to updating once a week!

Until next time...
