Holidays & babies & Christmas, oh my!

My, oh my, this last month has been a whirlwind of activity and unfortunately not much of it was to do with creating. I had the Cancer Council’s Relay For Life one weekend. Our team was the Beanie Bandits and we raised over $2,500 for the Cancer Council. Our team did the 24 hour relay at the Joondalup HBF Arena. Whilst it was an amazing experience, I don’t think my feet will ever be the same. I was delirious by the end but glad that I had been a part of it. My sister, the Team Leader was a power house. She never seemed to stop. She was amazing! Oh to be in my 30’s again…

Then Hubble and I had a short break in NSW with my Stepmum & Dad for my Dad’s 70th birthday. It was great to be able to show Hubble where I grew up. Hubble has never been to NSW before so my Stepmum had the week planned with a bit of sightseeing. 

It was great to be home and great to have a break from the everyday but as with all good things, it had to come to an end. 

Then early Thursday morning I got a message to say my little niece had arrived three weeks early. Such a gorgeous wee thing. Mum & bub are tired but doing well. I can’t wait to meet her at Christmas and to hang out with everyone. 

This has put a bomb up me, because I realised that it is halfway through November and I haven’t started my Christmas shopping yet. So I’ve started making lists and planning. I decided that I am going to make Christmas ornaments for the kids this year and use them as gift tags. Then next year they can hang them on the tree. 

So apart from some crocheting, a little cross stitch and starting these gift tags, I haven’t touched anything in my sewing room. I have decided that I will have to spend a couple of evenings this week getting stuck into some of my unfinished projects. 

I also need to work on my designs, writing up patterns and such. There is so much to do and not enough hours in the day. If I didn’t have to go to my day job I could spend a lot more time on the things I enjoy…oh well, I’ll keep dreaming.

Well that’s it for now.

Until next time…get creative!
