I’m back home… back to reality and a whole pile of washing! We had a lovely 2 weeks on the farm and the girls had lots of fun doing all the things that they only get to do at the farm. Ruby learned to ride the PW50 motorbike my brothers got her for Christmas all by herself!!

We had the first calf born for the year and the girls loved to help feed her (she was born a few weeks early so needed a little extra help)

We spent lots of time in the vegie patch picking and eating fresh peas.

And to top off all the fun we had a little reminder of just how close to nature you can be on a farm… or really just how close nature likes to get to the house! We had 2 Dugite snakes visit the house within an hour of each other!!!! Thank goodness that on both occasions the girls were inside. The first one made its way towards the house on the front lawn where the girls had been playing only minutes before they were called in for morning tea and the second one was making its way along the drive way just 20m from the house!! Scary stuff!

As I mentioned I packed almost all my craft stuff… 1 bag of clothing for all three of us and 3 big tubs of craft gear!!! I did get a fair bit of craft time and completed quite a few scrapbook LO’s and a couple of cards.

The first card I made was for my wonderful husband. We celebrated 7 years of wedded bliss a few days ago and this is the very special card I made to tell him just how wonderful he is. The inspiration for this card came from this Christmas card made by the very lovely and talented Sarah-Jane Kale`.

I had lots of fun playing with my new Framed with Love stamp set and Hello Again stamp set from the current  Summer Mini. I also used my Life Definitions stamp to stamp the together definition. I must point out that Stampin’Up! is having a super huge Inventory Clearance Sale and this stamp set (one of my absolute favourites) is on a super special so go and check out the bargains to be had.

Well I must admit it is nice to be home but we have been so so busy since getting back that there has been zero crafting done and of course there is the little issue of unpacking all the craft tubs!!!  I am so not looking forward to it!!!
