~Crafty Business~

Its a hot one in my corner of the world to day and I dont know about you but all I want to do is ...nothing when its hot like this.  I have a few project I want to start but have lost my mojo today.  I really want to make some of those cute strawberry sachets....oh and candles...well melts actually.....I go through so many melts.  Totally love having all the beautiful smells in my home.  I am forever buying them (melts) and thought why don't I learn to make them for myself.   I found a candle starting kit on ebay (they dont just do a melt one) and then I saw a soap making kit I bought both lol. I decided my soaps were going to be pink roses with rose petal sprinkled on top.  I read all the instructions...the colour looked perfect...the smell was divine...and the insructions said sprinkle petals in the bottom prior to pouring...which I did.....and as I am pouring the petals are floating to the top and making the soap around them go green.  I havent made the melts yet but they are on my to do list.  I even have pretty fairy floss fragrance which I cant wait to try.  Maybe by next Christmas I will have perfected both good enough for pressents.


A beautiful box I bought from the markets for $1 a while ago.

~Christmas is Coming~

I am terrible at keeping up with just keeps rushing by and my to do list is never ending.  It only 37 days until Christmas....are you ready yet or are you like me and rushing around trying to get everything at the last minute.  I shop for my grocery's on line in the last two weeks before xmas because I hate crowds..I hate trying to find a park and really I can just do without the added stress.  
Its also only 35 days until my 50th.....and that freaks me out a little.  I still think like I am in my 20's...where as my mum was old even when I was a kid.  She still tells me off because I don't act like an adult at times....and I always laugh at all the wrong things.  I am loud and I do see the funny side of things more often than not.
Anyways I had better keep this short or a 3 page essay it will become.  Thought I would share a picture of my son and my adorable grandson.
Thanx for stopping by and hopefully I will post agin before Christmas..
stay Happy xx

This is my son Brad & my gorgeous grandson Chase.....a good looking pair if I may say so.

A little something I have been sewing this year.
