Today I was very excited to have some special time with my new friend Chrissy. This darling I met through the Scrap of Faith site and blogging (can't remember in which I came across her now though!) and she is jsut the *sweetest soul*!! We have really hit it off. We had a lovely girly day today together. She came over and we just hung out together and played with my babies! (and took pics too!) Love you Chrissy and can't wait to see your gorgeous house and hang out again soon (and get some *better* pics - silly wall huh ;)) Here's us:
And here's Chrissy with my gorgeous little Miss:
And one that Chrissy took of me and my princess too, thanks hun:
And after Chrissy left, I sat down wit ha quiet cuppa and just *had* to have some more of the yummy goodies we ate for morning tea - my blueberry muffins and Chrissy's oh-so-scrumptious chocolate fudge brownies (forgot to get the recipe off you Chrissy!)
We have been SO BLESSED and received so many gorgeous gifts for Lani. It's been so exciting receiving things in the mail from my beautiful scrapping buddies and family abroad. So I thought I'd photograph the things we've received and say thanks again to the lovelies that sent them!
(still have a few gifts that haven't been photographed yet coz they may be in the wash!!)
This *stunning* brush and comb set is from Lani's grandmother - Greg's mum. Oh its so precious! I can't wait to get her a dresser one day to put it on. Her name engraved and all. So beautiful isn't it!
We've got some beautiful little spring/summer outfits that I can't wait to get her into when the weather gets warmer - she's going to be the cutest little girl around!!
This *gorgeous* pink gingham set from Chrissy (and her daughter Emmy!) - so cute. Thankyou so much sweetie:
This adorable set from Katie Toland (and a gorgeous handmade card to go with it!). Thanks Katie :)
And this beautiful bring dress from Ally, love it too. Thanks hun xx
This one from Rozzy she'll get to wear a bit sooner - yay. It's so cute with that little butterfly and the stripes, so scrappable! Thanks Roz and Clint!
This ULTRA girly, frilly one is from a girlfriend Roxy... and it comes with a headband too. We may put her in this one for her dedication I think. Thanks Roxy, if you ever read here...
This special bowl and spoon is from Greg's Gran, so Lani's great-Gran. My Dad and his brother had these bowls and we still use them (well my kids do now!) when we go to Gran and Pop's house to visit. How special :) Thanks Gran.
Today I also received a little parcel from Tracey from SOF. She had someone (a business) lasercut Lani's full name into chipboard!! Its so great, I can't wait to scrap with it, so you'll have to wait till then to see it :) Thanks so much Trace!
I will try to photograph other gifts another time. We have received a few other pretty outfits and a few things from my Mum too which I'll pop together and photo. Will be nice to have pics of them all anyway - maybe can even scrap em!
Oh, I have not blogged in so long that I haven't been able to publicly CONGRATULATE Anthea and Shane on the arrival of little Zachary Tyler, last Wednesday. He's such a cutie too!
Looks like this week I'm flat-out busy too! Had Chrissy here today, my Mum is coming for a visit tomorrow, and I have to go pram shopping on Friday. An old family friend is coming to visit on Saturday. Well, at least the house will stay clean this week! I've had a MAD couple of days cleaning I tell you. Its nice to have visitors though, but I hope to get a few *quieter* days next week just to chill out.
I've been working on canvases for Lani's walls too. Am doing 3 butterflies in pinks and greens. So far they look great, but I still have to do the black outlines, so hoping I don't stuff it up! Her room is coming together nicely. A few more touches needed though, bit by bit. Can't wait till its all done... :)
Well, that's about it for now. No doubt I have more things I wanted to say, so I'll have to update more regularly.
Think I'll go to bed now (after waking that precious babe for some booby first!) xxx
