2013 : Farewell the year of intense change!

We were reminiscing, today as we celebrate New Years Eve, that this time last year we skipped the 31st December on our way back from the USA to Australia.

It was a brilliant time to fly - hardly anyone else was. We left LAX at 10.30pm on the 30th and arrived at 11am in Sydney on the 1st - no NYE celebrations - we just dove straight into 2013...

I guess you could say we hit the ground running on New Years day and things didn't slow down from there.

2013 you were INTENSE!!

We've moved countries.

Lived at the in-laws (never again).

Bought a house.

Started renovations.

Both of us have started new jobs.

Our kids are well settled into a fabulous school, with the luxury of it going through intermediate as well!

We adopted a new (crazy) kitten and dragged our beloved cat across the ditch with us.

There have ups and downs, health challenges and amazing moments with family.

There has been crafting. Lots of crafting.... my sanity!

a snippet of what has been produced!

Have a safe and Happy New Year and I'll see you on the other side!

The Insane Christmas Crafter

There is something weird happening in our house at the moment.

I am on a crafting binge.

Seriously, its insane.

I really have no time for it. I am still working, we are renovating our bathroom and I'm managing to feed the family (most of the time anyway). 

I have no idea what is going on but if only I used my time this effectively all the time!

I'll be back soon with my favourite christmas cookie recipes!
