Happy Christmas and New Year!

Wowzers! It's 2014 already! Totally can't even believe it. Time has flown by so fast, and the Holidays went even faster. I was so grateful for an extra long holiday this season - being able to spend lots of quality time with my new Nephew and Families.

Back at work now, and into the normal daily life! I was hesitant to go back to work, because I was loving the holidays too much! But now I am here, I am actually enjoying the pace of it. Getting to do more design and making people happy :) - which is the most important part!

Here are just a WHOLE LOT of photos from my Christmas and New Year break - there's quite a few so feel free to grab a cuppa and have a scroll down!

Christmas is coming!

Wow I can't believe it is less than 3 weeks till Christmas! This year has just flown by. So many exciting things have happened, and I am just so glad to be ending it on a good note :)

Hubby is happy in his Apprenticeship - with genuine workmates and boss. It is just such a blessing to be able to have this opportunity for him to work and study at the same time.
We also welcomed my Sisters (in laws) beautiful baby boy - Corban. He is another amazing Blessing - Thank you God! :) he is perfect in every way, and he has just added to the joy of this year. And it is super duper cool being an Aunty! Love it (and Him!)


With so many different things going on this year - the end of it has just crept up on me, I can hardly believe that the holidays are just around the corner, hurray! I finally got around to doing my Christmas Cards and Gift Tags, which I normally get done in November, but that's ok, there is still time haha! Funnily enough I ended up making this one up when I was sick with a Vomiting bug, I was soo bored at home that I had to do something, so I came up with my Christmas Card.
This year I went for a more simplistic look - and it is cheaper to print! :P
Here they are;



Well it is the end of the day now - so better be off. Hope you all like the cards, and feel free to link me yours! Would love to have a look :)

Kara


Our little puppy Kara gave us such a shock last night, when she started to act all sleepy and weird, and let out these really high pitch yelps..was very out of character, she is usually super active and happy. So off we went to the after ours Vet (sooo expensive!) And she was fine..Vet gave her a shot of anti-inflammatory just incase she is swollen somewhere, maybe from a bite, or something that was stuck in her throat. 

So this morning she was back to her normal self, and licky and happy. We played outside, and had fun, and she ran around like crazy. Then we came in to rest, and she had a wee nap. Then she started doing it again, with the weird noise and being all shy and slinky. Ugh. I have no idea whats wrong, and there is no point going back to the vet, as they couldn't find anything wrong. Maybe she is a bit depressed? Who knows. Here are some of the pictures from this morning, you would have no idea that anything was wrong with her;








Well lets just hope she gets better soon, whatever is wrong with her :(

Hubbies 25th!


Firstly, Happy 25th Birthday to my wonderful Husband!! Wooho 25!

Well we had his party on Saturday, and it went really well :) Was a lovely evening, with friends and family.
Hubby wanted me to make a guitar cake for him, so we went ahead and created one that kind of resembled his most recent guitar (a Maton Electric Custom)

Anyhoo, here are some pictures of the cake (which was a little tricky, but hubby and i managed to get it done without any oppsies or arguments! Woo!)



So yeah that was a bit of an experience!

On some other news, Hubby is very happy to say that he has accepted a new job as an Electrical Apprentice! Starting in two weeks, he is super stoked and so am i, it is wonderful to see him happy and excited about work again. And now he can finish his training, and continue in a real career :)

Also, i got my hair done again! hehe, here are some pics;

More blonde! Exciting :)
And the back :)

Well that is all for now :) Hope everyone has a fantastic week.

Hubby's Cake Creation!!


Hubby had to make a cake for work, his shout for his up coming birthday. (which isn't for a few weeks, but a few others have birthdays close to his, so he got in early) So he had to come up with an idea - pass it by me to see if it was do-able, then he had to make it and decorate it! He decided he wanted to do a chocolate, vanilla, red velvet layer cake. Woah! Man it is big! We had a wee accident with the icing, originally going with Cream Cheese icing, which since the size of the cake, and stability, was too flimsy. So i had to make a mad dash to the supermarket to get some Fondant icing! Oh boy. Fondant is no where near as difficult as i though - very simple, if you stay calm lol. 

Anhoo. here is a pic of Hubby's cake - That i dropped off this morning (he goes by motorbike to work)

Hubby and his Cake creation!

Close up of the cake this morning :)
Inside of the cake - And it tastes FAB!


So proud of my hubby for all his hard work, hope he get good reviews from his workmates!
Mmm coffee time now :)

Bits and bobs from recently



Woah it's been a while since i did a post again - getting slack! Not much changing on the life front here, the weather is starting to warm up a bit, and little peaks of Spring are showing. In my garden i now have Jonquils and Daffodils up, and my Freesias and Bluebells are popping up too. I love this time of year where you see all these promises of warmer weather, and beautiful long sunny days :)

And all the new flowers and veges that are growing fast! Makes me so happy!

Here are some pictures of my Garden etc;

My first Daffodil out!

Found this wee fellow with a broken leg :( - but he flew away happily

More Daffodils and Jonquils out - enough to pick!


My first Broccoli picked - and boy it tasted yummy :)

Made some Foccacia bread for a party

Coffee in the Sun with the puppy

Fun gardening with Puppy!

They are finally getting on - and this is a rare occurrence...oh my cuties!

Well i had a wonderful weekend, celebrating with family and friends at a special someones baby shower :) - such a blessing babies are, such miracles, in this case a massive blessing. Was so great to see everyone gathering to celebrate her becoming a mamma soon. Not too long to go now, can't wait to meet this special fellow soon! And give him a big hug! - That reminds me i have to buy something special before he arrives!

The rest of the weekend went pretty fast, Hubby was away on a mens retreat with Church, and that was lovely for him to be able to go and have a fun weekend. I ended up going out for a girls night and movie with a few ladies from church, that were also husband-less/fiance-less :P.

Then Sunday brought Church, and i was upstairs teaching the littlies, as i do. And then another quiet afternoon followed, where i caught up on my new favourite show - Call the Midwife. Now i am sad that i have finished it, and there wont be anymore out till next year :(. But on happy news, lots of my shows are starting soon, and i didn't even realize that Drop dead Diva had started again! So i have got lots of that to watch.

Last night was spent watching the end of Breaking Bad season 4 - trying to get up to date with the new season, and Baking hubbies cake for work (on your birthday you have to make a cake and you get judged on it, winner gets $100!) Anyhoo, so hubby did real well (considering he has been off sick - thankfully was feeling a lot better when he baked it) He is doing a layer cake, which is looking pretty good i must say - well done hubby!



Well i better get back to it - Yay coffee time! Woo...need it considering we were up till 12:30 baking and watching Breaking Bad! :P - silly us...
