2010 wrap up and some big news.....

Who can believe that another year is over - just like that! I still feel like i am i fast forward, time is just going by so fast!

Christmas festivities brought the 'BIG' man with lots of fun gifts for the kids, yummy food to indulge in, games to be played and good company to enjoy, catching up with family. I was even totally spoilt by Mr JK, who surprised me with an IPAD for Christmas - i think im hooked!! So i've spent some time uploading some fun Apps, Ebooks (of which i am through 3 books already!) and games - which the kids mastered in no time!

The time before Christmas seemed to get away from me, though i did manage to get a good amount of my gifts handmade (and subsequently forgot to take photos!) but i did manage to squeeze in a last minute Christmas dress for little Miss using the Delilah pattern:

The Christmas - new years week is always busy for us, as we have little Mr's birthday squeezed in there for good measure. Which means more get together's, indulgent food and of course pressies for him!

But he does love it of course - big 7 already!

Mr's choice for a Pirate cake!

Thankfully in amongst the rain we managed to get just about the only fine and sunny day of the week, perfect for a bit of Slip-and-Sliding!

So needless to say that by the time we get to the end of the week, the welcoming of the new years is a quiet affair! 2010 was a pretty good year for us and here is a quick wrap up of some projects i finished throughout the year:

Some of my crafty goals for 2011 including - learning to quilt and making a single bed quilt for each of the kids (I love to sew but don't actually know how to quilt), complete some of my unfinished projects that a piling up, decorate the kids room and making all gifts for this year handmade (including Christmas which i will definitely start sewing earlier!)

I'm not really one to make New Year's resolutions on account that i usually fail to stick to them! So i usually just have a few goals that i like to work towards for 2011. I am looking forward to a year full of new projects, new adventures, new memories and new beginnings. Our exciting news is that 2011 will bring the arrival of our 3rd baby in June!!!

Hence my absence around here and the lack of posts - you forget just how utterly exhausting that first trimester is! So this years projects will no doubt including a lot of baby and nursery sewing, watch this space!

Well done if you've made it this far, a big post i know. Wishing you all a fabulous new year, full of new endeavors and exciting possibilities!!

Thanks for stopping by!
