Well I was looking back at photos on my phone the other day, and realised how tiny I looked at 12 weeks, when I thought I had a bump! Man was I wrong. I think this wee boy is going to be a big one.
Here is a collage of weeks 12, 20 and 26 - just so you can the difference, it's way more extreme than I thought!

Now I am almost at 27 weeks (into the 3rd Trimester already!) and I even look bigger again! Oh boy :P

Well it's Friday here, and I am about to know off for the day - YAY! Can't wait for my sleep in tomorrow!!!

Recent crafts and happenings :)

Well it has been a busy few weeks - and they just keep flying by! I am already almost 25 weeks!! so over half way now. This boy is growing well and kicking me heaps! I love it. It's such a special feeling, feeling him in there playing around - oh love <3 p="">

I have been doing a few projects for his room lately, and here are a few photos of them. I have made him some artwork for above his cot, and hubby and I painted a mirror - and some letters for his wall (which I can show you when he's here!) Then i have made a bunting for around the top of his room :) Making this stuff makes all this feel the more real - even though i know it is, it's just kinda like a dream some times. Can't believe that in about 16 weeks i will be a mummy!!! Eeekk!

Here are some of the pics;

And here is a pic of hubby and I about to go out on a date/friends birthday night (anything's a date now - when you get dressed up and actually leave the house!!)

Well that's about all from me for now - will try and keep putting up pics of the artworks i am still making for his room! :)

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 :)

And here we are being silly lol! Such a fun night.

The tutorial I used was from: Thecherrydollface

That's about all for now, just busy busy at work with the year coming to an end - already!!
And soon I will be planning my Christmas Cards, and decorations! CRAZY!

This Christmas will be an extra special one, with a new family member there to celebrate with us - can't wait to have a new Family photo to share will you all :)  (P.S. I haven't had a baby LOL!)

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.
