It’s been a thoroughly busy time in our household this past month.
We have my parents visiting from Melbourne, plus our daughter that lives in far north Queensland came down to visit for a week too. It’s the first time we’ve had all 3 generations together in the same house for about 4 years…. and it has been perfect. We are in the midst of organising a wedding, so of course there is much to talk about.
I admit that I miss a full house; one that is filled with laughter, abundant hugs and the odd bit of family teasing. Meal times are always kind of crazy and there’s the constant theme of cooking, eating and doing dishes, but that all makes me a very happy mum.
Needless to say, there has been no time spent crafting in the craft room, however, I am working on a fun project that is portable and perfect for stitching while I’m sitting in the winter sun, chatting with family members.
This is just a very small part of a much bigger project, so I look forward to sharing the completed items with you very soon.
Simply Shabbilicious Magazine
I put a call out on social media this week for contributors for the 2018 Christmas issue of Simply Shabbilicious magazine.
You can CLICK HERE to read last year’s Christmas issue online.
I’m looking for great quality photos of Christmas home tours, Christmas crafting projects and recipes.
If you would like to put a submission in to be a contributor to this issue, I’d love to hear from you.
Is it too early to talk about Christmas?
I know it is still 20 weeks away, but I always start working on Christmas prep about mid year. I’ve been tossing around ideas for themes and colour palettes and because I couldn’t decide between my love of pastels and Christmas reds, I’m working with both this year.
Here’s just a little sneak peek at my Wintery Woodland theme….
