Grace, Liam, Rachel and Joshy.
Hello friends and family, hoping you are all well and keeping out of mischeif. To all those of you who have been enjoying the recent dust storms, lol, how did you fare? Hopefully no body was too seriously stricken by the dust. We seemed to just cop sore throats and dry eyes. We kept the windows and doors shut when we could stand the heat as to not welcome to much into our home.
Well my little princess Rachel is 6 and a half weeks old now. Been a little bit unsettled of late, but nothing she won't get through I am sure. Bit windy is all. She is so delightful and is talking and smiling at us when we focus our attention and converstation her way. The top photo of her and I was taken a few hours ago on the web cam, but the other ones of the kids were a couple of weeks ago. She looks different to that already. Alert and strong and very aware of what is happening around her.
The two big boys are on school holidays, well one started back today actually. It has been lovely having them at home, and at Grandma and Grandads. Matty (hubby) took the two boys away for a week to a job he had in Sarina, and the eldest three have spent time off and on at my parents, so all in all a lovely relaxing holiday for everyone, especially me lol.
Ok, Rachel must have sensed i had sat down to type, as she has just woken up crying. I tell you, I can do housework, cooking or anything but sit down and she won't wake, soon as i have some ME time, she wakes up wanting my attention. Oh well, that is what it is all about isn't it. I shall enjoy the time with her this little while i have it. Ok friends, that was quicker than i had planned but it is a good excuse to come back and do another one real soon. Let you know what I have been up to in the crafty department. Much love to you all, Ali

PS. Baby Lily has been renamed lol. My hubby hadn't warmed to that gorgeous name and has chosen to call her Rachel. So Rachel it is, he chose our other daughters name as well, and I figure it is a great way to have him feel included as so far it has all been me enjoying ( and not so enjoying) the adventure.
New! Ribbon Plaques

- Precious Lily Handmade Vintage Design -
is my new logo for my handmade products.
Inspired by my little bump Lily.
Hello everyone, I have been itching to sit and blog, but being at number 100 post, I kept putting it off till I had something to use for my giveaway. I still haven't thought of anything big or amazing, but have been making some gorgeous little yo yo hair clips and thought I would show you those. If anyone would like a set, then make a comment on this post and I will draw a name out of the hat next Tues. I know they won't be everyones cup of tea, as they are probably more suited to the little princess in your life, or I guess could be worn as a brooch to spruce up a cardi or something for you. Anyway, if anyone would like to enter, then comment here, and the winner will be notified next Tues and will be offered their choice of the three sets shown below. That is it. Simple as anything.
This photo shows the back of one of the clippies.
And these tiny little ones I made for the little baby girls at TLC in Africa where my precious friend Tammy has just gone back over to a few weeks ago. TLC is a loving orphange that take in abandoned babies and looks after them and most of the time finds loving adoptive homes for them. The precious babies have black afro hair as you can imagine so I made these with black tiny clips which will be camoflage in their hair and will just be a burst of colour.
