The last Christmas orders have been sent, the snow has seemingly come to stay, all the presents are wrapped.
I’d like to take a minute to thank, sincerely, each and every one of you who have supported me and my endeavours this past year. Be it through a purchase, a comment here on the blog, a sweet compliment. I appreciate them all.
I truly would not be where I am today without you.
I hope that you all have a wonderful, Happy Christmas and a safe, joyful New Year.

I’m so glad it’s Friday.
It’s been hectic around here with the holidays coming up.
I planned to do absolutely nothing this weekend, but plans don’t always work out. Oh wells.
The husband is requesting I go to a Rugby match with him tomorrow. He got free tickets and New Zealand is playing. He thought I would want to go because I’m a fan of their pre-game dance ritual thingy. ( Is there another name for that? I have no idea.) But, I know nothing about Rugby and I’m pretty sure the dancing doesn’t last for that long. We’ll see.
Here’s a video if you haven’t the slightest idea what I’m talking about.
Anyway, Monday is our 5th wedding anniversary. 5th! I don’t know where that time went. It’s been a wonderful 5 years and I love him so, but the time is all a blur. This year especially has just flown by!
So… we will be having a nice long weekend together. Rugby pending.
I’m also just finishing up this photoshop e-course I’ve been taking and haven’t shared any pics here yet, so… here you go.
not bad, eh?
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

I’ve been trying hard not to get sucked into vacation mode. Mr. balanced is off work for 2 weeks for his birthday, but I’m not. It’s difficult for me to stick to my “schedule” when he’s here. Not that I don’t want him here!
Anyway, we made some plans, but the weather has been horrible so we keep pushing them back. We have, however, had a lot of success out in the garden. During the small breaks of good weather.

Ok, I don’t usually gush over children’s items, but seriously, how much would you have loved to have a room like this as a child?
That’s one lucky little kid.

… her new “beanbag” pillow.
This was something I sort of just threw together a while back. I got these great yards of Amy Butler fabric in a trade on Etsy and they had been just sitting around in my craft room. I basically just folded one of them, hand stitched up the sides and then stuffed it with some styrofoam peanuts I also had lying around. Ginger loved it as soon as I gave it to her!
Recently though, it dawned on me… dark fabric, light haired cat. It might have been wise to install a zipper? to be able to wash it easily? perhaps?
So, that’s what I did. And then to make the stuffing easily removable during washings I just put it all in a plastic bag that I can just take out and put back in. Voila!
Of course after all this hand sewing, because I don’t own a sewing machine, Ginger was not interested in her pillow at all. Cats!
It sat around unused for a couple days, but yesterday I caught her. You can hear her on it with all the noise from the peanuts.
She loves her pillow once again.
