the year that was ... and pause

2011 has been a huge year we went from being a family of Three to a Family of Four . I started doing markets and selling our crotchet goodies . It has been year of ups and downs .A baby that slept to a baby that never slept . I have met some amazing people and formed many new friendships . I have left the Safety of a full time job to look after my boys and continue with our little crotchet adventure . It has been an amazing year and I cannot wait for what surprises 2012 will bring both myself and our growing family . Thanks to all the amazing people who have supported both myself and our family on our adventures there are no words for our gratitude ! Have a very Merry Christmas and a Safe New Year . Here's to good health !

Mad dash to Christmas

Sorry for the late blog posts as the title states it has been a mad dash to the Finnish line this year for Christmas . So although I had finished all the boys shopping the beginning of November there was still so many last minute goodies to purchase , make and then throw a week of much needed gastro in there .
So we have been busy making some homemade rocky road for the teachers gifts with a little La de dah Christmas decoration- you can never have to many Christmas decorations. What Have you been busy doing for Christmas? are you still going ?

I hope that everyone is enjoying the Christmas countdown so far December has lived up to the month of madness here is what we have been up to :
- Markets and more markets has been great meeting returning and new Customers .
- Christmas parties both for the big people and the little people .
- Ginger bread making , after meeting the very talented Kara from Kuna foods how beautiful is this christmas bauble .My attempts are the wonky house no final pictures as the roof is needing to be remade yep it is an art .
- Christmas decorating with our beautiful lLadedah kids christmas decorations .
- Some much needed together time for the boys .
- Baby O is on the move and into everything ! I thought my first born was busy but baby O takes it to a new level .
- A little gardening our Hydrangeas are finally out in full bloom and looking great . Finally we have harvested some goodies from our vegetable patch cabbage and zucchini .

boys tees

Seb is rockin his coloured denim jeans and the fit is amazing. Now to find some great tees to go with them how great is this selection .

cute kidsroom

I am loving this kidsroom found here .Although small the storage and layout of the space is neat tidy and oozes cool . Although I am getting way ahead of myself as baby 0 is not even 1 yet . The thoughts of how the boys will share a room and how to configure the space is already on my mind ... yep I love a design project .

A baby and a monkey

Couldn't resist posting these super cute photo's of play time with monkey . Both my boys love there Ladedah monkeys they have been chewed , dragged along the floor , cuddled and thrown and they have lasted the test of time . As I share with many customers these monkey's are built to last and they do . A cold hand wash and they are as good as new.

These lovable characters are very much loved . They make my little 11 month old giggle every time he plays with him and that makes me happy .

Would love to hear your La de dah monkey stories ?

Crotchet lampshades

How great are these crotchet lampshades I love them ! I love looking at what can be crotchet and it seems endless the ideas tick over and over ! image found here

christmas cheer

It is a crazy time of the year but it is so nice to take the time out and enjoy . Yesterday I took the kids to see the famous Myer christmas windows and to visit Santa. To say that they loved it was an understatement .To be honest I was rather concerned as previous years we have lined up for hours only for little Seb having a freak out ,at first glimpse of Santa . However this year was a nice change I could not get him away from Santa and even after a extended consultation he wanted more . Baby O took his que from big brother and did not show any signs of being afraid the result some beautiful happy snaps and amazing day of Christmas fun through the eyes of a little boy .
