Project Life week 9, 10 & 11


It seems my blog is a little neglected these days, other than the token project life and Scrapmatts shares (which I think I even forgot my March Scrapmatts post here). Things are hectic to say the least but I am at least keeping up with project life within a week or 2 so pretty good effort.

In between the usual mother duties, part time work and small home business stuff, I am still learning how to sew. Some great accomplishes and some near disasters but learning while I create. This week I finished a nappy clutch that will make life a little easier overseas. It fits a nappy or two and some wipes and folds out into a change mat so it's good for changes on the run or when you don't want to throw in the whole nappy bag.

I also finished most of my first attempt at a quiet book. These projects are not quick but they are fun. My daughter was given a quiet book by her grandparents for her first birthday and she loves it so I decided I would make another with some different activities as they are perfect also for travel. There are endless amounts of tutorials and patterns available online but I made mine free hand, through trial and error and it's not perfect but I'm pretty happy with the result. I will share in another post soon :)

For now, here are my most recent project life pages :)

Happy creating x

Project Life Weeks 7 & 8

Here are my weeks 7 & 8 for 2014. I am a couple of weeks behind at the moment but thankfully digital doesn't take too long to catch up. Not totally loving either of these layouts though unfortunately. But some very nice memories with my birthday outing to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary!

And after neglecting my blog for almost a month, 2 posts in one night. Wow!!!

Time Flies

A week ago today my daughter was 15 months. She is every bit an active toddler now and no longer has that little baby look. It feels like this past year has just vanished and she is growing too fast!

This time of year is just crazy for birthdays in our family. In February was mine and my niece also turned 21. Then rolls around March and one of my nephews turned 13 along with 3 other family birthdays. Busy busy busy!
So lots of quick cards thrown together over the past couple of weeks and Scrapmatts are just perfect for making very quick cards... as in under 10 minute style cards ;)


Have a great week
