Hand made presents-String Art

This year for Christmas I am trying to save money, but also give out more meaning full gifts. So I'm going for more hand made gifts.
Its hard to buy for my partners family-they have all they need, I don't really want to go out and spend money on something they aren't going to use, or will just clutter the house. So combining my love of Pinterest I've finally decided to start making some of those things I've pinned.

So this is my take of this pin :

These are on pieces of MDF that are A3 size. The black one I only printed out the map A4 size-hence the size difference. 
I love them! What do you think?

My new love-Crochet

At the beginning of the year I started attending our local stitch n bitch with a bunch of lovely ladies. I knew most of them already and as the year went on we invited more to join us.
I was lucky enough to be taught how to crochet, and since then haven't looked back. I have made so many things and really enjoy it.
Here are some pictures of some of my creations this year.

I'm back!!!

Boy, its been awhile.
Life boy has changed since I last posted. I should really read my last post to see what was happening then.

But anyway, there has been some big changes. September was a massively huge month for our family. We moved for the first time since having Lara and boy was that a mission. Our old house was at the top of a nice big path which meant we opted for movers. Best $500 spent ever!
A week after moving our I gave birth to our not so little boy Leo. (Yep that's right, we moved four days before I was due!) Was a very speedy labour (just over 2hours!) Lara and Paige are totally smitten.
A month later and Lara turned 5! Off to school she went, and she has coped brilliantly.
So here are some pictures from the past wee while.

Cuddles with big Sister

Just chilling and being cute.
Sleepy cuddles in the sun with Daddy
(Yay our new house gets soooo much sun!)

Miss Cheeky Paige-dressed herself with two tops.

Not so little Leo, having some cuddles with his sleeping sister.
Well done if your still awake after the pictures :)
Tomorrows goal will be to redesign my header-I think that is well over due!
