Saturday family time

I am so lucky that both my girls take after me in the crafty department - put some hama-beads, paper and glue or just coloring pens in front of them and they are off. It's fab to see them develop their own styles - yet very hard NOT to guide them too much and make them do things my way :-)

Sometimes - not very often - but sometimes I manage to be a little bit organised - and normally when we are going to all the birthday partys the girls are invited to we more or less go and buy the present  on the way there... BUT NOT THIS TIME.

So with the presents already bought I thought it would be nice for the girls to make their own gift wrap, and with my newly invested small ink pads and my stamps I they made the most gorgeous wrapping paper.

I am so ready to give the wrapping paper for Christmas a go.

My husband was watching from the kitchen - he volunteered do the dishes all by himself not to get involved in the potential mess :-)

Until next time...

What a start to this new venture. I can't thank you all enough for popping by and for all your lovely comments. It is all a bit scary, but you have all helped me on my way.

As some of you mentioned I have now managed to add the Follow gadget - so hopefully I've done it right!

So this is it - officially a blogger :-)

My very first attempt...

so please bear with me :-)

This is a whole new experience for me - but with everything else new that is going on at the moment I thought it would be a good time to try it out.

I think I ought to warn you immediately - English is not my first language and I am renowned for coming up with new English words or frases, sorry phrases (and spelling mistakes) - so if there is something you are confused about please don't be afraid to ask.

Even though I am in the middle of a move I have a few projects on the go:
  • Scrapbook from our honeymoon in Kenya 2005 (has to be said that I only started it this summer) - there will definately be posts about this...
  • A lovely scarf (started in June but struggling with the knitting pattern)
  • Christmas Cards (still in the design phase)
  • ...
- not to mention all the projects that are in my head waiting to be materialised.

I am not very good at creating anything without inspiration, and one of the people I turn to most is my very good friend Louise - and besides checking her blog daily I am very lucky that I also go to her classes and - if need be - has an open line. I can't thank her enough for getting me going again after many years of not doing anything crafty - whatsoever...

This it is for now - I can't wait to share my crafty/bakey/knitty journey with you.
