the joys of pregnancy

picture from sindyshops.com

i love this picture! how glamorous is Sindy? if only i felt this way today. some women love to be pregnant, i think i am definately NOT one of these, well i am some days......

Congratulations you are pregnant!!!
 here are some things you (me) may not like about it:

1. every morning begins with a quick dash to the loo to bring up breakfast
2. your wardrobe no  longer fits
3. oh aching breasts
4.oh even more aching nipples
5. itching skin as it starts to S T R E T C H
6. no brain,  cannot hold a decent conversation
7. sciatic pain in butt
8. can't sleep due to large bump in the way
9. kankles appear around 5pm
10. indigestion from water!
11.  waddle like a duck
12.  always hungry but nothing ever tastes good
13. no champagne or sushi
14. constipation
15. fork lift needed to get off the couch
16. ok so i could keep going..............

the count down for me is now at 16 weeks to go & yes i know its a very long way a way and all my  non- joys are only going to get worse. i'm crossing my fingers for a
 " i love pregnancy" list soon.

a lazy sunday

yesterday i was woken from my dreary sleep with a msg from mum who was at this market. PACKED she said. it took ages to get a coffee and to wander through the amazing stall holders was at a slow shuffle. So it sounds like this new makers market, about an hrs drive from Daylsford is definately one to keep an eye on. Mum lives only 5mins away, so it would make  a great girly w/e away.

if you havnt had a looksy at their info page, do, its got some fabulous creatives on it. my fave so far, this lazy sunday morning, has been Blue Day Designs very interested in her stencil pics - might put this one in the vault for later when my new baby arrives. (not long now, only 17 weeks to go!!!)

purses to blush

the last week or so has also seen me being super busy making more doily purses for the lovely Jo from Blush in Corrimal NSW. Jo found me via MadeIt and bought out my store in one swoop! It's always such a good feeling when your creations are loved so dearly. She let me know that over the w/e the most popular purse was the big green sari one . So with that being said, more were ordered and are on their way.

(ok now i'll go enjoy my quiet time)

a week of creatives

ahhh the serentity!
nina has finally gone off to day care after having the dreadful cold for 1.5 weeks, finally she has gotton rid of it & they say the only way to get rid of a cold is to give it to someone else - ME! so i am now in week 3 of cabin fever, although i have managed inbetween nina's cold & mine to get some crafty swaps done and make a stunning cake! i promised nina on one of our rainy inside days that we would make a cake - pink with lollies was the request! it was yum!

the calico & co crafty swap was sent off during the week and loved much by its recipient- a doily purse from previous post (the white one) and Here Comes The Sun sunny day swap over at Punky&Me. The criteria was to make something that screamed SUNSHINE- i think i covered this pretty well! my swappee is an uber cool chick who sneaks the streets of perth and crotchets onto street placements, so i thought maybe a crotchet bag that could be slung over the shouder would in order. check out Captainplaknit 's stuff here

i've also got some new purses to show you, but i think i might go and sit in the sun while its out & enjoy my few hours  off life xo
