Happy Christmas

I love a flash mob video. This one is fantastic. Enjoy.

Have a fantastic Christmas. Stay safe and enjoy your time with family and friends. And remember the greatest gift ever given, the Rescuer who came as a baby and saves us from our sins, if we will just ask.

Making all things new

Hi. I wanted to drop by and let you know that I am still here. I hope to make a return to regular blogging in 2013. Amelia will be starting school then and I will have more child free hours in the day. It is my hope to turn those hours into productive and efficient times of utter domestic goddessness - HA! I can dream.

Anyway, this year has been full of house renovations and lots of driving. Amelia has been at kinder and Esther and Ellamay at school, it seems all I have done is drive.

We now have a new kitchen and laundry. The renovations continue as we try to finish off bits and pieces. We have been making all things new. Changing so many things has been hard work and the kids have had trouble adjusting. Especially since so much time has been spent falling over boxes and tools. I can't wait to find some kind of normal again.

I have painted until I can't paint any more. We are doing most of the work ourselves which means it takes longer and we are limited in our times to work... mostly when the kids haven't been home or if we can manage to be awake after they go to sleep.

It is looking wonderful though and it has made such a good change to our daily lives. Maybe when I get back next year, I will be able to show you some pictures.

Painting shoes

I really haven't even been in what you could call Mid Craft because the closest I've been to crafty for a long time is pinning crafts onto my Pintrest boards. And I must agree with the line going around, Pintrest is electronic hoarding. But what fun it is!

I actually managed to catch up on my google reader finally so there is hope that I might get back to this part of my world :-) In the mean time, I hope you are all well and being craftier than I.

Have a wonderful and safe Christmas and I will see you in the new year.
