My Madeit Fun Finds :)

Yay, I finally got around to doing it :)

So today my finds are based on the fact that I am doing my little boys new room at the moment, and our theme is... yep.. cars! well it started off as transport but its moved more towards cars. I know its a bit boring, but he loves them and I have a few good ideas involving paint, walls and dinky cars :) Will post about that another time..

Here are my finds and where you can find them!

1. Hanging pocket organiser by kitty n' kitsch
2. Vintage cars wall stickers by Mae
3. Car Frame Art by the papertie affair
4. Matchbox car pocket by LAcrafts
5. Cars bunting by Little Foxes
6. Reversible Car hat by Jojas

So there you have it - Im sorry if you are not interested in cars, but many of these lovely people make other things too, so if you click on the link to their store im sure you will find something you like :)

I didnt know what to put as my post title because today I have a few random things to talk about...

First, I have applied for some markets in November! Ekk I hope I am ready in time, although I think I will be as I have a few things that I have made recently and have lots more to do.. Should be fun. I am due mid Jan with bubba # 2 so fingers crossed I am not as big as a house by November :) hehe.. I am slowly catching up with my belly now - I just popped out at 12 weeks and I looked 5 months - am 4 months now so not looking so massive ;)

Second, I came across this recipe on Buttons by Lou Lou's blog and am so going to make it! Not sure when, maybe this weekend and take it over to mum's house for afternoon tea one day :) I can't wait, I luurrvve Lemon Meringue Pie (how funny is the word meringue - try say it as its spelt, its funny :)

Thirdly, I am going to try and post a weekly madeit fun finds post, I wont choose a day because some days im just knackered by the time its my little boy's nap time that it becomes my nap time too, and thats when I usually get all my work done.. So will just say that I will try and do it once a week! Might even do one now.. I have been looking at a few things recently - I find madeit so tempting.. paypal is just too easy sometimes ;)

I hope you are all having a good Tuesday - Tuesday's are a funny day.. not Monday which is a 'right lets get on with it' day, not Wednesday which is a 'yay halfway there' day, not Friday which is a 'phew, weekend tomorrow', even Thursdays are a fairly happening day (well they are in my house anyway).. So Tuesdays are.. a day when I forget that big Mr has Lacrosse training and take out something like a roast to cook, which isnt fun cooking and cutting and eating on your own.. But I remembered today and took out mince - its spag bol for us tonight...

Doesnt look like i'll get the madeit thing done today, I hear little mr stirring in the monitor.. Oh well, will see what tomorrow brings :)

Exciting news :)

Well I have been away for awhile... over a month! But I am back and feel refreshed and all ready to get back into things..

The main reason that I was away for so long was... bah da da bah.. We are having another baby :) yippeee.. due mid Jan next year. I have been a bit out of sorts with some fairly yucky bouts of morning sickness, which meant all my spare time was spent sleeping or lying on the couch.. but thankfully it went away last week.. phew. The thing with morning sickness is that it kinda takes all the fun out of being pregnant - its horrible and depressing really! You wake up sick, feel sick all day and go to bed sick..and not to mention the spewing.. sorry! hhhmmm - I really feel for those mothers out there who have it really, really bad and who have it the whole 9 months! eekk now I really couldnt handle that..

Anyway I am 14 weeks now (but look about 5 months! - you should see the size of my belly, people keep asking if im having twins!) and feeling pretty good, the occasional feeling of ickiness every now and then, but pretty much 100%..

So I am finally sitting back out in the office that I share with my wonderful husband and making plans and getting ideas for the next direction for milly&me.. I have been thinking of lots of things and can't wait to compile a proper plan and start acting on it! I have decided that I would like to concentrate on a central theme this time, instead of making things willy nilly.. I have had an idea in my head since the beginning, of the direction that I would like milly&me to take but was way laid along the way.. I will endeavour this time to stay on track and maybe not buy so much material.. :)

Well I hear my little boy stirring in the monitor so I think its time for me to log off and go make us all some lunch :)

I hope you are all staying warm.. its so cold at the moment, isnt it!!!??
