Long time no see!!!

Well sorry it has been a while since my last post... Things have been very hectic around here!! We are in the middle of moving house so I have had to put the craftying to one side and start packing/clearing etc!! We had 7 yes 7!! bags that went to charity!! Why do we hoard so much junk I wonder..... Felt good getting rid of it though! Other than the stresses of moving with a 17 month old we have all been good and for once none of us have colds so that is a bonus! Every time the sun peeks out me and Amelie rush out to the park to feed the ducks and go on the swings , so ROLL on summer..... I am looking forward to lazy days at the park or beach and picnics galore!! Plus very excited to take Amelie to the zoo this year but I want a sunny day!!

Anyway wish us luck with the BIG move and I will post a few pics when were all settled xx

I thought I would share with you all that I had my first Etsy sale and had a few more sales on Folksy!!! Im so happy that I am finally getting my business of the ground and selling my work! Yay!!
So me and Amelie have just been to the post office to send all the parcels which felt nice and get some lunch too... (Waitrose always tempts me!!!)
We also had a walk down to the park and fed the ducks... All feels good when the sun is shining!!! Apart from the OH is away for work so can't wait for him to get back and give me a break this weekend!!
