my baby boy

Wow my last blog was in August, where does the time go?
Just thought i'd share a few pics of my beautiful baby boy. Caius Alexander Hopes was born on christmas day weighing a 9.1lb.
(above) 1 day old
(below) 9 weeks
My Boys! Theo and Caius
.....and as if a newborn and 4yr old weren't enough work we also took on a new dog 2 weeks ago
this is ziggy.
Caius is 10 weeks this weekend and ive finally this week found a few 10mins here and there to do some crafting. ive missed it so much.
I've got big plans for 2012 but i just hope i find the time to put my visions into reality.

pay it forward folksy friday

Some of us on Folksy have decided to be super generous and do a little good deed which involves selling one of our items for free (well 20p to cover the listing fee and enough to cover postage) in return the buyer should do something nice for someone else or list something in their shop for the same price.


If you wold like to get involved just buy one of these fab items below and then list an item in your own shop with the tag "pif" and "pay it forward" for the listing fee of 20p and pass on the love! here is the folksy forum post where you can then promote you pif item http://forums.folksy.com/forums/6/topics/274105?page=1 "One good deed might not seem like much, but if everyone did something good for someone else, then the cycle of generosity and kindness can help us to become better people".

my first week on etsy

wow i hadnt realised it had been so long since i last blogged. ooops! very much neglected.
well ive ventured into the big and somewhat scary world of etsy.
i started listing things over the weekend and although my views are small they are creeping up slowly and i even have a few hearts, although this doesnt mean much but its very exciting for little ol me! oooh and ive already been featured in 2 treasury showcases. which is great exposure for my little shop and although it may only bring in a few looks its still all good news for my first week. so overall im happy it has gone well so far, cannot wait for my first sale!
here are the fab treasuries im featured in
and i thought i better make one of my own
im liking the etsy treasuries they are a great way of seeing shops that you might not see otherwise, and great if you love a style or colour.
Please take a look at my etsy shop!
