Neglected Blog and Lavender Hearts
I want to say two things , firstly I am sorry that I have not been writing anything on this blog lately , I am not sure if anyone is at all bothered about my lack of blogging but I did say i was going to try and write often and secondly where on earth do you fantastic bloggers find the time to do all the great writing.
My life is not that interesting but it is just too busy and blogging gets put to the bottom of the list.
For all you mums out there with younger kids let me warn you that the summer holidays are a disaster when you have teenagers and teenagers friends. I presumed that now my kids are older (12.15.17) I would have lots of time to myself to sew,blog and generally be creative but No, these teenagers are a demanding race, they want food all the time and they enter your kitchen like a swarm of locusts and just devour everything they see, I would not have believed the amount of time I have spent in the supermarket this holiday. They want lifts everywhere and as I encouraged them to get jobs and do swim camps etc I suppose I have to help get them there and back, so when I am not in the supermarket I am playing taxi driver. And when I am actually allowed to be in the house with time to work there are so many comings and going it is just impossible to get things done so role on september and the new term and hopefully back to creativity !!!!
Now I have finished making excuses for my lack of communication let me show you what i have been up too, i have started creating this great little lavender hearts with adorable charms on them.
They started when i wanted to jazz up a present i was giving to a special friend and I did not have a card or a gift tag so i thought I would make one of these . They really are cute and you can use them for so many things, I fill them with organic lavender and flax seed and I get the charms from Cards and Craft on Esty. I love this shop.
Have a browse through my shop and if you cant find a heart in a color you like just let me know and I will make one for you .
