WOW almost at 300!

Thank is so amazing! and is so much more than I thought I would achieve at this stage!! So THANK YOU to each and everyone of my likers, I really appreciate it from the bottom of my heart

I am busy (and stressing) with making and choosing stock for the newest southland event The Market that is being held in SIX WEEKS!! I have never been part of a market before from this side, it is VERY stressful...even more so when your part of the planning committee :) I have been trawling FB and other sites for ideas and market tips, from how much stock to have, to great ways to display your stock and stall...there are sooo many helpful and wonderful pages out there, the one I have fallen in love with is Handmade Canberra, thou they arent from New Zealand their tips and advice are fabulous and fit all markets.
Another wonderful part of this Market is the group that Chantel Kent from Southern Jewels and I started Southland WAHMs, we aim to bring all Southland working at home mums together in an environment that encourages help, support and most of all if your a mum from Southland come over and check us out

Well best be off and get cracking on these new exciting patterns and getting stuck into the fabric that has arrived this week

Have a great weekend xx

Happy Mothers Day

 Ethan - Amelia (Milly) - Liam

I am so blessed and thankful to be a mum, thou there are mornings I just want to bury my head under the duvet, or run and hide from all those questions,demands and moans -  "mum why is the sky blue?" "mum why cant I fly" "muuuummmmmm" ...But man do I love the little rugrats!!

Tomorrow is Mothers Day and while we really don't do anything in this house hold to celebrate, I'm lucky I get sleep in every weekend and pancakes cooked often...Love you Troy.
But it does make me sit back and think about my mum, I have come to realise that you don't truly appreciate what your mother did and gave up for you, until you become a mum/parent
The saying I hated the most growing up that my mother REPEATED alot was "I know you better than you know yourself", of course I always rolled my eyes and replied with "whatever" - clever response huh
But after having my three, I totally understand and now know, yes as mothers we DO know our children better than they know really is quite scary, and I'm sure I'm going to have that same argument with my children.
 My mother is an amazing person, and really is my inspiration...She raised four children as a solo mother and did a damn good job!
She also picked me up and put me back together after my messy and very painful divorce from my boys father, I really have no idea what I would have done without her during that time.
 So this is a HUGE THANK YOU to my amazing mum!!
 Have a fantastic mothers day everyone, and remember the best gift a mum can get is a hug and a huge smile
