before and after

This little guy I made for a two year old last Christmas has been well loved over the last four months : )

After discovering Lullatone via Pip's blog, I went ahead and ordered baby's first CD "Songs that spin in circles". Now I'm on the hunt for a xylophone, fingers crossed that I'm lucky enough to find one at Camberwell Markets similar to the one lucky Sarah found.

buns in the oven

Speaking of buns in the oven, I took my partner along to a mystery date last Saturday. I first heard of the breadmaking course at the Abbotsford Convent Bakery via Hollabee's blog and considering spontaneous weekend activities may become a soon distant memory I thought I would make the most of our couple time together.

Poor Franjo had no idea what I had planned, his guesses ranged from couple counselling to sky diving and in the end he was pretty happy with the days events. Now I'm onto thinking about our next mystery date.

Thank you so much for all the sweet comments with my baby news, it's all very exciting and a little scary at the same time. I'm glad we're given nine months to adjust and prepare for our little arrival.

seven 'very interesting' things about moi

About two weeks ago now I received a 'kreative blogger award' from Dorothy Bills. Eleesa has asked that I share seven things about me. I have been holding off writing my seven things until this week just so I can share some extra bits of 'very interesting' information...

1. I have been struggling to fit into my clothes lately.
2. Sleeping has become my best friend.
3. I share something in common with Craft Schmaft.
4. I turned 39 on April Fools day, it's my last year in my 30's.
5. I'm 20 weeks pregnant.
6. It's a BOY!!
7. It's my first pregnancy.

Now I would like to pass on the kreative Blogger award to seven kreative ladies, miss hello sandwich, teddy bears wednesday, betty jo, earl and cookie, badskirt, pottymouthmama and super duper things!


P.S. (My blogger absence has been due to some queasy first trimester fun).
P.P.S. (It doesn't hurt does it)!

two faves

Two faves... a condensed version of five faves.

Image one: Tangrams, I'm really loving the use of tangrams in design it's a little reminiscent of the 80's.

My apologies for not providing a link to the original owner of the image used, I've been looking for days trying to find where I had found the image from with no luck. Please let me know if you are the photographer or if you recognise the photo.

Image two: Millimeter Milligram, for stationery lovers.
