So I had so many plans to get some gorgeous valentines samples done and the begining of a new card kit, but there has just been no time, only time for bare essentials like getting orders out and popping new stock on the website. The rest of the time has been taken up playing nurse and entertaining and chauffering kids everywhere as well as dealing with the never ending array of bickering amongst siblings that can often begin at 8am. What can they possibly have to fight about at that time?? So I have to say to be perfectly honest, bring on school. I can't wait, I am absolutely going to be counting down the next 10 sleeps to freedom and routine. I know I am not alone here as I took the kids to the pools today and happen to see several school mums and in our little chats it was interesting to know that we are all feeling the same way. That's the importance of communicating with other mums so you don't get the mother guilts thinking that you are the worst mum because you have had enough of your kids, we don't have to try and be perfect and say the school holidays are wonderful, when in fact towards the end of it we are all over it and just want the kids back at school. It is okay to be human and honest and not feel like you have let the team down. So if you are feeling the same way, just take a big deeeeeep breath and know that its okay to feel this way and that this too shall pass and soon enough they will all be back at school.
So now that I have had my little vent and to explain my lack of posts, I am hoping for a brighter week ahead. Husband is finally recovering and hopefully the kids will be happy to just be in their final week of school holidays and not need to be taken out every day.
Have a wonderful weekend!

In store there are some gorgeous products already available and more due to arrive in the next week. However to start you off, a new free mini kit is now available, pictured above free with any $50 purchase.
Also available are these gorgeous papers from Bo Bunny. Perfect for making a little mini valentinealbum.
How gorgeous are these papers. The first one is ready to be cut up and all the sections can be used as prompts. The only thing about this paper is that both side are just so good, so I advise you purchase two of them.
Well I think I am officially melting now as it is soooooooo HOT in Melb at the moment and I have no aircon in my craft/computer room. So I am signing off for now to sit where the air con is. Keep cool!!!

to this special little visitor who graced us with his presence at the Rye Pier. Wandered in and then had a nice long afternoon nap up on the rocks.
to a couple of hours out on the boat. Not really my cup of tea I only lasted about 40min, then hubbie took me and my younger two back and just him and Danielle stayed out for a couple of hours. Lets just say I prefer land.
in case you were wondering its not our boat, we just hired the boat for a couple of hours.
Of course some sandcastle building, of which I forgot to take photos of the finished products. Even I got on my hands and knees and helped to dig a huge hole with Michael and Danielle. Not very lady like I guess and I was the only mum playing with my kids and digging. But hey how can you go to the beach and not play with the sand. Oh and that's right I am not in any photos becuase I am always usually the one behind the camera.
Who can forget to mention this gorgeous stuff the sea, I have my own little human fish in the family, it didn't matter how cold or how windy, Miss Mel is always up for a swim, a girl after my own heart, as they say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
So that's a tiny recap of our little break. Back home now and still a few more weeks to go until school starts.
But on a business note I am back and raring to go this year. Lots of great ideas swirling and new products are on their way. More about that in my next post.
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

I am really stuck this year. Some I am thinking about are simplify, clarity, peace, trust.
Spending time at the beach watching the waves roll in and out, taking long walks around the bay and thinking and just allowing the thoughts to come and go. Feeling the soft sand in my toes, listening to birds tweeting and kids laughing, giggling and happily playing. Spending time with family and finally taking a step back from all the pressures of daily life. Letting go of that responsibility I carry all year long, or well trying to anyway. Bliss, is that what they call it! Maybe that should be my word.
I hope you are all experiencing this on some level.
