Lovely Links

I haven't really got time to be cruising around the blog sphere on dial -up entering giveaways, but I'm glad I did because I found these beautiful individual stamps. I'd love to buy myself one right now, but I'm living frugally for winter so I'll put it on my wish list. I thought I'd share it with you though cos I think they are adorable.

If you have an hour or so to discover a whole lot of new craft blogs I suggest you pop over to sew mama sew for all the giveaways. Be in quick though they close on the 31st May.

I'm hoping for a weekend of sewing. I deserve to relax a bit, it's been a full on week. I worked in the craft co-op this morning, it was my turn to do the window display. I'd been stressing about it because I wouldn't say arranging things is one of my strengths but I think it turned out alright. I'd show you but I am still camera-less and missing it very much.
This week I've also run into town for sport and dancing three times, and twice to organise the hiring of a suit for the teen's high school ball next weekend. A word of warning... save up for a couple of months before the ball because it's painfully expensive!!
I cleaned the bach for guests from Australia, cleaned the kids bedrooms because they were disgusting and cleaned up piles of seed I hadn't got around to sorting and storing. The red head has a fascination with opening dried pea and bean pods, so he actually did most of the work.
I did a great job at being a good Mum this week too, we had TV off alot and played connect 4, Mancala, go fish and read stories, it was lovely. I asked the kids what they wanted to do this weekend, Skatey said "go catching salmon". I wish I was SUPERMUM.

Just popped over from Wee Folk Art. You have a lovely blog. Very rooted. This is a crazy weekend with the May Giveaway going on, but I've made you a favorite and plan to spend more time here. I've been organic gardening for years, but I want to kick it up a notch from hobbyist to actual contributor. Looking forward to learning more from you.

You have been busy this week. I hope you get some 'me' time to relax with your sewing, in between landing your salmon :0)
