I'm posting early....because the kids left early with Mr N to spend the entire day and night with their grandparents. Yes that is right, I have a day just for me. Aggghhh, what to do? I think this will be a great day.
Today here in Australia and also some other countries, we celebrate ANZAC Day. Both my parents are ex Army so they will be marching today to represent all those who can march no longer. We will be there to watch and I'll be very proud.
someone is having a party soon...not soon enough for me because all I here is mermaid this and mermaid that. The invitations have been sent and I'm making some puppets for the little friends. Most of these friends are boys so I'm trying to tone down the girliness of the party as well as avoid the whole Disney version. Puppets, and Make your own Sea Creatures will be the highlights of the morning. Here is a sneak preview.....
I'm in the process of adding some items to my Etsy Shop. My computer is not behaving very nicely so it is a slow process. Hope to be finished in the next day or so. Thanks for all your comments, I really appreciate them and they made me laugh. I'm sorry about not replying to you all but due to this overheating computer of mine it has been very difficult.
About a month or two after I began this blog, I decided that I wouldn't make it into a blog about my family, or at least not let that side of my life become the focal point that could be viewed by millions hundreds of strangers. I'll be honest and say that I'm inquisitive about people and their lives and I like to look into them and feel a connection with them, but I'm not one for ooohing and agghhhing about other people's children, dogs or cats on a regular basis. I'm drawn to what people, more so woman with a creative ability can do with their minds and hands. If you happen to have children (or animals)I just relate to you more I guess.
ANYWAY I'm getting off the track here. Back to the point of this post....There are many consecutive weeks where my art, work and craft simply get put on hold due to family. Have I posted about this before? Are you one of these people too? I'm in that zone right now. There are many things happening here and I feel like there are many incomplete projects rolling around my house and in my head waiting for May to arrive so I can finish them.
However, we are renovating and this week is not a good week to be in the way of sharp, loud tools and heavy door frames. So I'm out of the house and we are making the most of being together. Hence no craft, no art,just a photo of 'one of the family'. And please no ooohing and aaghing unless it is about all that wonderful yarn or my coffee on the table!
I went to my studio this morning to start some sewing projects for a swap I'm in. It was a mess. So what did I do? Clean it up? NO! I just moved everything outside onto the verandah. It is still so warm here so I thought I would make the most of it. Infact it is ridiculously warm for April. But it was fresh this morning, I even put my dressing gown on. What a nice feeling that is to feel a coldness in the air. Mind you it was all over by 8am! So this weekend is about being at home with the family, hoping only to venture out to the clothes line, sew and draw.
Mr A is currently asking lots of questions about what daddy does at work and is fascinated that he works on buildings. My husband is an engineer and after explaining some basic pointers to him, Mr A made a 'ginormous, biggest ever building site drawing'. He and Miss M have worked on it this morning. Although Miss M insists that mermaids should be in the drawing. I am always so amazed when they play so well together. I guess this means that somewhere in the world there are siblings spending their Saturday morning constantly fighting. My thoughts are with you if this was your children.
