Does it make the heart grow fonder? I hope so. Sorry for the disappearing act. When I said that the new year was going to be exciting someone must have heard me because I've had nothing but great things happening. Trust me, I'll spill all the beans in due course. Last week was a careful-what-you-wish-for week - but in a good way.

I will try to make up some of the time away by posting a new kid-friendly recycling project (from the photo can you guess the material we used?) and my second template offering too. Just keep your fingers crossed that tomorrow is a good day to take photos. The weather out here has not been cooperating with me in that sense. This of course has been happening just as I needed to take at least 40 pictures in the last few days. Sigh.

I have finally succumbed to the cold that has been going around here (kids had their turn last week - husband is still immune) so I'm going to make this short and head off to some tea and bed. I hope you all had a great weekend and I'll see you tomorrow.

Oh and does anyone have any ideas for a new header? I'm tired of thinking but I'm also tired of looking at those trees!


  1. Looks like egg cartons! But what did you end up making?

  2. Sorry to hear you're feeling sick! Hot tea is my favorite when I'm sick, I hope it helps you feel better quickly too!

    How about some of your gift wrap pics for a new header? Especially the red ones, they'd be great for Valentine's day!

  3. Great guess Jules! Yes, we used an egg carton. Check my next post to see what we made.

    Kari- You're idea inspired my new header. I don't know how I jumped from gift wraps pics to a spinning heart but it worked. Thanks! :)
