A bit of everything in this post!

Hello Blogging Friends,

How has your week been?  Ours has been busy.  We went back to Tamworth last weekend to celebrate my Nan's Angelversary.  It is a year today since she passed away.  I know she is always with me, helping me and looking out for me, but I still miss her. Here is a photo of me and my two beautiful nieces on the Sunday when we had the morning tea.  A precious moment with the two of them.  I love them both so much.

I promised Candy last week and I have organised it and will post it today.  Everyone is free to enter.  You just have to be a follower.  Click the link in the sidebar and it will take you to the candy post.  It will allow you to make some very quick cards, just what I love to make these days.

Here is a pic of Nicholas.  He is such a happy little baby.  Laughs and laughs...I find myself smiling so much my cheeks hurt.  We went to Pilates today to a Mums'n'Bubs class.  This means you can bring your baby and have them on a rug next to you while you do the pilates.  It feels so good to stretch all those muscles out.

I have been pinning a lot lately on Pinterest.  If you wish to follow me you can click here.  It is easy to pin on my mobile while feeding Nicholas as it only requires one hand.  Anyway while pinning today I came across a pin that sounded interesting and relevant to me:

Click on the picture to read about how to be more organised in life...tips on cooking dinner, storage, to-do lists etc.  I hope to read a little, because this really interests me at the moment.

And finally a card...or ten...I made these the other day...little notecards for Christmas.  I used LOTV die cuts and the new SU Framelit die.  Sadly I didnt really like how they turned out.  They seemed a bit dull or something.  The Kaisercraft Dec 25th papers were a bit dull and the black just seemed to make them darker.  Oh well, I am sure they will come in handy at Christmastime, dull or not!!

Well thats it for me this week.  Off to post the candy now.  Next week I hope to talk about Copics...my plan for next Tuesday is to have something coloured in!!!
Until then I hope you are having an awesome week.

Love those photos - you nieces look gorgeous, and Nicholas is so handsome - April must have been the month for smiling babies as DGS is a 'smiler' too.
What a beautiful term - angelversary - for a bitter sweet time.
