it just told me in just over a month i will have a one year old!
now im a little sad, its ok that lilly will be 4 just 2 weeks after emilys birthday...it is not however ok that my baby is going to be one!....where did the first year of her life go...its like i went to sleep and woke up the mother of a nearly one year old! When your feeling that your family is complete im more emotional about her turning one that I ever thought I could be. I want to celebrate it, but there is this part of me that is breaking and going this is the last time...:( I have so loved this stage of my life. Having babies is wonderful...but i feel like we have what was meant for us. We have to work so hard to get pregnant and then i have such issues in the last month as the baby gets bigger and my body packs it in and i cant lie and say its been easy as i get older (Emily is a dream baby or was a dream baby) but i have felt every single sleepless night this time around. for me right now...there is just something very bittersweet about this birthday all the first she has shared with us over the last year there isnt many times in your life that you get to do all these things is there.
anyway my dh doesnt get it...he is happy to move into the new stage in her life and celebrate it...i want to be ok but im sort of greiving i think this part of my life was a dream come true, i guess its now time to live the dream in the next chapter

I made the 2007 DT...so im looking forward to doing some aussie dt work this coming year. Congrats to the other girls that made the team with me. Looking forward to getting to know you. and a big thankyou to the outgoing team, boy do we have some shoes to fill.
Ive been doing some work for a guest spot i have coming up, but i cant share yet. And some work for scrapbooking by design, which has a monthly kit that this month features lil Davis papers and they r NICE!
So pretty and all double sided too. Loving double sided papers atm. Heres what i created with them. I love this photo of youngest and dh.. :) The quote reads loving a child is circular business, the more you give the more you get and the more you get the more you want to give. Sourced from two peas. and my tip for doing any circular sewing on the machine. I stitched the flowers around and around first before i stuck them down...it was so easy i was saying drr jacqui

Shell if you want to email me on firstname.lastname@example.org with your details i will get your little note book in the post.
thanks for all the tips people put in the comments it was interesting to read what other people wanted in classes. Something i took from the weekend at the convention was that a little give away was nice!.
off to the convention on saturday. I had a great day. Got there about 9 and wondered off to find my classroom. Dumped my heavy bag and had about 15 minutes before class started. I found the scrapbook creations stand with the display of colour competition layouts in it. And to my delight i found my layout to be up on the wall as a finalist and the comp, along with chris millar and michelle grant. Michelle was a runner up...congratulations michelle your layout was beautiful.
Here are the pink and green layouts up on the wall
thats my layout in the top row to the left. me and my beautiful lilly. (thanks to chris for the pic of the display its nice to have.) these are the pink and green finalist. see the green and black on chris's blog . Heres a close up of my layout
its given me a vote of confidence one needs before sending in your masters entry!
until next time
oh ps anyone in the flood zones i hope your all ok and things are starting to improve for you
