Stylish & with substance

The lovely Katena at Taylor Made Baking has honored me with these 2 blogging awards!!!!
I feel very privileged to have received such accolades from Katena as I always read her blog with such admiration & if you drop by to meet her you will understand why....
She bakes the most amazing cakes & party favours you have ever seen, being a very basic cook I can't even imagine the amount of time that goes into her artistic creations.
Thank you Katena ;o)


I also need to thank the ever so stylish Lisa from Ledamae design for honouring me with a stylish blogger award. Lisa  has a wonderful blog & a fabulous Made it store where you're able to purchase her AWESOME art work, so DO pay her a visit if you haven't already, I have a list of Lisa's art I would love to purchase, I just need to build my house so I have a worthy place to display it!!!
Thank You Lisa ;0)


These lovely awards feel not just like a reward but a reminder of a standard to live up to for the year ahead
( the pressure is mounting, he he he!!)

Now to follow in the tradition of the awards I am to share 7 facts about me & then pass them along to some fellow bloggers!

1.My last baby was unplanned & I was pretty freaked out at the thought of managing 4 children having regular crying sessions throughout the pregnancy. One of those sessions was over the fact that I would still have many years ahead of me, of wiping someones bottom (crazy thoughts, I know), but here I am, my oldest child is 17 my youngest 3 & I'm still on the job, LOL, that's a lot of years with toilet paper in hand!!!
( I have to say after 9mths of fear, this little girl turned out to be one of the best things that ever happened to our family!!)

2. We have lived in The Hunter valley for almost 2 years & still feel like we are on holidays, there are sooo many things to do in the area there is no need to travel to any holiday destinations as yet!!

3.My dream guy & I have recently celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary, we planned our garden wedding in 5 weeks, we thought it would be less stressful & we where right, no hic cups, just loads of fun!!!

4.I'm the second child in a family of 4 children
5.When my dream guy works night shift I barely sleep a wink, I'm a fraidy cat.
6.This year I have made it my goal to act on some of my creative ideas, rather than just thinking about them. Yes you are probably going to see some home made goodies, my biggest plan, a tufted ottoman. I already have my dream guy lined up to help with the timber side of things....wish me luck!!!!
7. I never tell people I write my blog,(only my immediate family know) its like I lead a secret life...SSSSHHHH!!!!

Now a few lovely bloggers to pass these lovely awards onto!
(They suggest you pass these awards onto at least 10 other bloggers, so I took this as an exercise in self control & guess what, I failed, Oh well!!!)
