Hello to all my lovely crafty friends.
Yes I know I have been very silent for the past month, but you will be pleased to know my nursing placement is complete, my last exam has been sat and I am almost ready to submit my case study. I only have 24 classes for next year and I will be finished entirely, which is a relief. I am not a huge fan of study. I am too disorganised to do it well.
Button Bliss is set to take off in the new year with lots of new buttons, paaterns and special gifty 'stuff' ready to go onto the website. With that in mind I am clearing out some button trays and making room. Would you like to help me? Yay. Well firstly all my lovely bloggy friends can help themselves to a storewide 20% discount . Fill you shopping cart and when you proceed to checkout make sure you enter the words SecretSanta into the "Do you have a coupon " space. Feel free to share the code with crafty friends, I need space kinda desperately. The code will work until 31st December 2011, so grab a bargain while you can!
I am also retiring some designs, I might have reworked them, got sick of them or simply not have space for them in the Button Bliss range. Keep an eye on the Sale page for goodies and yes- you can have 20% off those items too.
And on to news... well it's not really news, more of a roundup
My youngest daughter loves to dance and last weekend was her dance recital. We went along to watch and cheer.I had imagined her in a little tutu doing cute little jumps or pointing her toes delicately. It was not to be. She was a mouse with big grey ears, nose and whiskers, on stage for around 30 seconds. The rest of the 4 hour concert - YES you read that right 4 (four) FOUR!!! hours of loud teenage hiphop belly button shaking grunge street dancing we endured. In the first hour I was thinking it would be great to encourage Child No 4 to do more classes. by the last half hour I was nearly in tears, and my ears felt like they'd been physically assaulted. I am hoping next year gymnastics, netball or even jetskiing might catch her eye and we will get a reprieve.
She did ask me to make a new ballerina button
The other kids are well and as happy as broody, moody teenagers can get. They are almost finished their school year, so the teen boy 17 is happy to be having extra X-Box time, teen girl 15 plans on painting a masterpiece and teen girl 13 gets teary whenever she remembers that she won't be able to see The Boyfriend every day. I get teary thinking of 2 months locked in my house with 3 x teenager hormones and a 7 yr old who wants me to play Barbies. If anyone would like to loan them for a week or too just send me an email.
As for me, well with 2 months study free time, I plan to sit by the pool and read a book. I plan to visit and catch up with long suffering, neglected friends. I plan to cook, eat, enjoy free time and get crafty. It is afterall the holiday season!
