Cover girl Gemma and the beautiful Edie

Lovely photos of Chloe. I won't bother telling you what I think of the one of me - suffice to say it was only six weeks after Arj was born.

Tasmanian business magazine Enterprise did a story on three mum's fitting a creative small business around their kids. I'm thrilled to be in there with Gemma of Loz and Dinny and Georgina Freeman of Baby Hoot and The Adventures of Dick and Dora(can't find any links to this new partnership but here is Dick and Dora). Also, the arrival of the lovely photographer lifted the mood in our house when we were having one of those days! Chloe was thrilled with him!

Back from the brink...

... of becoming a non-blogger!

Blogging just hasn't been my thing for a little while. I expect I'll continue to come and go a bit. It's pretty hard to get anything done around here! Can't really blog endlessly about getting the kids up and dressed, changing the nappies, feeding Arj, not getting to the housework or the cooking, never mind the sewing endlessly. You (and I) would die of boredom.

To be honest (cos I'm not sure enough Mum's are) I've had some pretty low weeks and felt my emotions getting out of control. I feel like I'm getting past that stage now. Maybe it was hormonal - it seemed to coincide with my hair starting to fall out in a big way (Yay).

I have done a little bit of sewing. A pair of trousers for Arj and the beginnings of a quilt in American Jane's Wee Play fabric. I love them both and they've whetted my appetite for more sewing. Just got to work out how to get the kiddies to enjoy occupying themselves around me while I do it!

We managed to get away for a long weekend to Melbourne a while ago now. Had a lovely time wandering around the shops, botanical gardens and zoo. Had some great food and enjoyed the feel of being in the big smoke. Chloe, Arj and I had a lovely afternoon with Jen (Thanks so much for coming into the city to meet us) while Sam was cringing in the stands at the MCG watching his team disappoint him again!

Oh, yeah, and there's a few things listed on Etsy. Only what I have ready to go - I won't be making to order for a while.
