in the stars...

mothers always feel guilty...no?
i don't like to get involved in the working/staying at home mother debate. it's not healthy.
we made a decision early that one of us would hang at home. my career went on hold. we travelled around the country for my man's work, i worked a few days (or nights) a week & the boys had me home mostly. now it's my time. i feel a little selfish at times....
it was in my stars....everything i read last year was about a little leo growing up & moving up.it felt like whatever i dreamed of, i got. don't get me wrong. it was hard work too. but i set my mind to something & i achieved it. the universe aligned & now i have a dream job. sometimes you just have to believe.
photo is one of poh's paintings...remember i discovered her before she was on masterchef??

jumping through hoops

i am unsure where the months go.
i have jumped through alot of hoops lately though.
today i feel strong. other days, not so much. hormones. life.
change is great though.
on a crafty note.....i have squeezed in a few sessions of late. the ironing & housework just has to wait sometimes. the crafting quiets my soul & brings me joy.
this teeny embroidery hoop was made with love from recycled cloth, vintage buttons & transfer paper. it took me longer to figure out how to print in mirror mage than to make the whole thing....i made another but it was gifted before i photographed it. it had red & white spot bunting. really cute.

new year

somehow my holidays are nearly done & i am back at work in 2 days....how does that happen?
in typical 50percent fashion, i am still to get gifts to friends i work with. my brooch making came to a halt when the rainy weather wouldn't let my paint dry & so i lost interest....am back into it today despite the rain.
we have a new baby in the family...he is a tiny maltelier puppy & as we are first time dog owners, i am the typically annoying 42yo first-time mother at the vet with a million questions. i am surprised at how in love with him i am as i have never been a dog sorta gal. he has melted me though.....despite the toilet training & 0430hr starts most mornings. man he is cute!
the rain continues & i am reaching for my inner craft diva to make use of my last few days of holidays....i am going to let the kids (fur children included) fend for themselves (they have a new x-box bought yesterday with savings & a 15yo niece to entertain) & be totally selfish for the day i've decided.....& finish something for god's sake! am off to find my rainbow....
