It appears the collection is dwindling!

I have already sold the dress and skirt! HAHA so much for the market! :D

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Collection!

I have been busy sewing up a storm for the February Handmade Expo. I had a fair bit of VHC fabric left over from Connor's Shorts, so I thought I would make a few pieces for the up coming market...
A cute little Pinafore Dress...

A cute skirt....
A cute pair of shorts...

I have a few scraps left, but not what sure what to do with those yet, will have to get creative!

I have been eyeing off this dress since it's release many months ago...

I thought $58 was a little too much to spend on a growing girl (and there was no way Swift Jim would allow me to buy it). But check out Belle and Boo's Blog! Mandy is having 1/2 price on it!!!!! How excited am I! And how gorgeous will Ellie look in it!! And of course how gorgeous will Elizabeth look in it when she is a little older! YAY

I am quite a happy lady this morning.

Back in 2005

Five years ago I went to the Hillsong Color Conferance for women. It was inspiring! So inspiring infact that GLOW was born. The women's ministry at my church.
The past couple of years doing GLOW has been a struggle. We have been feeling uninspired and unmotivated. I feel like I need to be inspired all over again. I need a fresh look at Jesus and what his plan for our women is.

I just had a look at the Color Website & was sooooo excited to see that Holly Wagner is speaking again this year. She spoke 5 years ago when I was there last & she was amazing to listen to.

I soooooo want to go this year. Like really REALLY want to go.... Don't know if i will be able to though......

I'd like you all to meet...

... a friend of mine who I met via a parenting forum 4.5 years ago! She and I have become extremely close, infact if we lived in the same state I am sure we would be inseperable! I love her! And I am SO glad that God brought us together. I will cherish her friendship forever...
I am so thrilled that she has decided to join the land of bloggy goodness and has started her own blog! You can find Mummy Blue at her blog The Wonder Years... I hope that you will visit her blog and offer her lots of encouragement!!

T & I on NYE 2008....

Cute Chitter Chatter

My munchkins were sitting next to each other at lunch time today when Connor turned to Ella;

C: I love you lots Ella
E: I love you too

Then they hugged.

Melt my heart :)

It's a little bit odd in my opinion...

My kids have an old school Mr Men VHS (you remember videos?) One of the episodes is all about Mr Lazy. Now on our old VHS the colour isn't so flash, so if you will, try to imagine;

This in this shade of beige

To me he looks like a kidney, or an EMBRYO!?

Slightly odd don't you think?

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you see 'Vintage' Mr Lazy? I'd love to hear your take on the whole thing...

Edited to add:
This is the new Mr Lazy :)

What do you do with a burning piece of toast?

Why, you throw it out the window so that the smoke alarms don't go off, of course!
