I am closing this blog down...

Go here to find out the latest with me and mine *smile*
A little surprise awaits!

Oh and to be technically "correct" I am not really closing this blog down, I will keep it "open" for archival purposes... but from now on I am over here.
A new era begins...

3 more sleeps...

and we have a naming ceremony for this little one...
Right now:
Our little boy is sleeping peacefully.
Daddy is driving across the Hay Plains (be safe honey!!).
Big sister is at school.
Mummy is doing some laundry, finalising some packing, doing some creative 'stuff', listening to Ronan Keating (teeehhheee, I am SUCH a dag) and getting ready for a 4am wake up call. I wont be okay until I know Nath has arrived at his parents safe and well.

EDIT: Nath has arrived safely in the Adelaide Hills. Phew! Thank God!

Happy Hump Day loves...

Happy Tuesday...

Good Morning *smile*

AMAZING, I have managed to update Joshua's daily photos, HUGE achievement!

We have FOUR (4) more sleeps until Joshua's naming ceremony and it's a beautiful and busy time for us!

So here are a few pics of what we've been up to lately...
Mikaela has tickets to the High School Musical Ice Show (she is OBSESSED by them)...

Mikaela's birthday party:
And cake:

Mikaela's Dad got her these shoes ages ago, they are too small, but every horse riding lesson she SQUEEZES them on...

Kim is amazing with Mikaela's hair and I ***LOVE*** her to bits for it!
I had my pedicure before I collected Mikaela from school, then we went straight back to have nails all spruced up for her brother's special day:

Have a gorgeous day loves...

I will be posting tomorrow.
Update since the last post in brief is: Valentines was gorgeous, watched Casablanca for the first time {I know that is lame I've never seen it before LOL!}.

Mikaela had her 7th birthday on Saturday, she had an Indoor Rock Climbing party... twas a lot of fun for the kids and adults alike.

Today she had her usual weekly horse riding lesson. Then she and I went on a trail ride, lots of trotting and Mikaela was one happy little girl.

My gal pal Kim came over this afternoon with her two older boys. We watched a movie, I did some ironing, Kim did Mikaela's hair again... while our men were at the pub.
All in all a good weekend.

LOVE THIS photo so much!

The girl can ride...

Solo, which is SO VERY exciting for her. Mikaela has been having "Little League" riding lessons for a few years now, where we lead her {and the horse!}. Yesterday was her first "Junior" lesson where she rides all by herself. She was way overdue for solo riding, so she really loved it and did well. Here she is going for a trot. Mikaela always chooses the largest pony (not necessarily the fastest, though she is yet to believe me on that one) LOL !

A sneak peek of my creations for Maya Memories this month...

I am loving my MOZI mouse pad and "to-do today" pad all in one. Cute as. Well at least it makes me FEEL more organised.

Happy Monday peeps...

Unfortunately I have missed quite a few days here and there, but hey, thats kewl!
I love looking over the blog, it is just incredible how much babies grow and change in the first year... SUCH JOY !

Other JOY... I am still cleaning my studio space in between my real life :)!!

Happy Friday to you and yours...

Time to just BE....

First I have a LOT to clean, I am feeling all boxed in and my energy is blocked.
I realise this is part of my process... I have LOTs of new ideas and exciting things to share with regards to my artistic endeavours, but first I need to clean the "slate"... and spend a bit of time to just BE. {You ever feel that way?}

Going to get my hair done this afternoon... SOME SERIOUS grey going on right now LOL!
Love out

My BIG second grader...

I do NOT know how she is already in Second Grade, but she IS... a BIG 2nd grader.
The morning went well, she was a bit aprehensive last night, but today she was A-okay! A friend of hers was having a teary, so Mikaela was able to come to her rescue.

As I left her she had a huge grin on her face, ready and excited to start a new year.
I **LOVE** the first day of school.
Josh and I then went into Kingston, put in my memory stick to get a few photos developed. I bought some lingerie (oh-la-la), induldged in a coffee and couple of choccies. Josh slept on the couch after I fed him and I had a quiet moment or two to myself (MUCH needed)...

Now in my studio to get some work done.

I hope your day is a beautiful one.
Joy and love out...
