Crafty Sunday

Welcome, its sharing day again, cant wait to see what you have all been up to but I'm afraid all I have for you is 2 half makes and 1 big excuse.

The excuse is really quite simple, 'half term'. School holidays just mess things up, can't really explain it but the lack of normality really gets to me........the greats have been a weekend away, meeting up with friends, the sunshine, the paddling pool, the odd bounce on the trampoline, the odd lie in, a bit of gardening and seeing the kids enjoying the garden. But the negatives have been the constant brother sister fighting, the nagging, the mess, the mountains of washing, the I'm so bored speech, the I'm so hungry groan, the MUM MUM MUMMY yelling through the house and the lack of structure. Don't get me wrong I love the kids, we've had fun and enjoyed the weather but as for me and making time it just hasn't happened. Am really looking forward to getting back to normality on Monday plus its also my birthday!!

(Oh no, just read that back, do I sound like a negative child hating control freak mummy or what ?)

My first make is the giveaway prize for Tracey at Sewn Up, only showing you a bit so I dont spoil the surprise, its very pink and very purple just like Tracy asked for. Sorry for the delay Tracey it should be with you by Wednesday.
My next make which is not a make at all really but worth blowing my own trumpet about. I've 'made' it into a magazine !!!!!!!!!! My key rings are featured in Creative Crafting magazine on pg 42 the Budget & luxury article for suggested fathers day gifts. I have to say I've never heard of it before, its an online mag but really well worth a read so why not check it out.
So that's me done this week, back to normal tomorrow and hopefully more makes for next sunday xxx

  1. Do you know you sound like a very normal mummy to me! And no wonder you don't get much crafting done in the kids holidays. They are a full time job. I only have my grandson for 2 days a week and its two days devoted to him and rarely do I get anythinng else done.
    Congratulations on the mention in the magazine
    (on line or not) its a great achievment.

  2. I know just what you mean about half term - much as I love a week off, I get much more done in the term time!
    Wel done with the magazine mention!

  3. I know exactly what you mean about not getting anything done over half term. I have four children - three of whom are at school - and it has been such hard work over the half term break. Like you I have throughly enjoyed the time with them - trip to the beach, London and Legoland - BUT I really could have done with a fraction of ME time.

    Congratulations about your magazine entry - you must be thrilled.

  4. Sounds perfectly normal to me too, as you know I have really enjoyed this week, but that is down to luck with the kids getting on well for once. Gratz on the mag mention too.

  5. oh, and happy birthday for tomorrow too xx

  6. Congratulations on your magazine feature ! Its wass nice to hear mine are not the only children who fight !
