Sunrise and Bread


I was up early the other morning and happened to catch a glimpse of the beautiful sunrise from our new lounge area. 

It is something isn't it!
Colin has taken over bread making duties as he quite obviously has the touch when it comes to making bread.  Here is a picture of one of his recent loaves in our new oven!

Update on Owen


Owen is doing well and in the past week he has starting doing a lot of walking.  I took him for his second hair cut on the weekend, which he was none too impressed about.  He created quite the scene when the lady started cutting his hair.  I was able to distract him with my purse, which he isn't normally allowed to play with.  We went to his day care centre for orientation today, I think he will be quite happy there once he settles in.

Here is our little man.

In our old kitchen, before it was ripped out.

Getting ready for Christmas.  I got him a t-shirt which says, "Official toy tester" and it came with the little Santa Hat.

Having a tanty!

After the tanty!  All those little curls are gone for now.

Christmas Decoration

Hello There,
Well we have been busy, busy, busy.  We have moved into the extension and it is so nice to have more room.  The builders are now renovating our old kitchen, dining and living area into our master bedroom, with ensuite and walk in robe.  We hope that it will all be finished before Christmas, we don't want to be welcoming the builders back in the new year!
Amongst all the moving I have managed to fit in some crafting (in my new crafting room, which I allow my husband to have a small portion of for his computer!)
We had a Stampin Up Demonstrators team meeting a couple of weeks ago and we all made the decoration on the cover of our Christmas Catalogue.  I had such fun making the first one, I decided to make another one.  I used a couple of suggestions from Bronwyn Eastley and Jayne Sutcliffe, to use DSP instead of stamping and to use the adhesive sheets.  This made life a lot easier.  Here is my creation.
