Goodbye 2009 Hello 2010

Goodbye 2009, If we're being honest then we're pretty happy to see you go. Too many close friends were touched by death and we came minutes away from loosing my dad. If 2010 could please be a bit less stressful that would be appreciated. We don't want to go to hospital for any other reason than to see new babies and a particular little much longed for bundle due in July that will bring some love into a family who have had a disastrous 2009.

2009 wasn't all bad of course, there were lots of highlights;

Liam started daycare
We visited Thomas the Tank Engine
We joined the PowerHouse Museum for the year and had great fun
Saw the Mermaids/Dugongs at Sydney Aquarium
Had the arrival of lovely babies
I joined the Handmade Helps team and helped in the release of the recipe book
I started knitting and learned to crochet
I opened my etsy and Madeit shops and sold things
My website design business got some fantastic new customers
Dean & I celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary
I visited Finders Keepers, Mathildas and Stitches & Craft Show
Took part in 2 Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Days
I turned 30
Isabella turned 4
Dean turned 34
Bella & I went to Melbourne
Liam turned 2
I was part of 2 fun swaps
Lazy Days Skirt sew-a-long
Liam went to his first Wiggles concert
We went back to the Hunter Valley for a few days
Santa visited
We cooked alot
I sewed alot
I attempted knitting alot
Lots of friends and family received handmade gifts

I don't really make New Years resolutions, more like something to try and improve on for the next year. 2009 was about taking the kids for more adventures and I think I'm cheating and doing it again for 2010. Visit more places, try convince hubby to take us camping. It's Isabella's last year at home before she starts school in 2011 and I plan on making the most of it.

Hello! I saw your car mats ages ago and was inspired to have a go at making one for my nephew. I did and sweating aside it generally worked out! I take my hat off to you - I would not want to make them every day! Thanks for the inpsiration - come and have a look if you like!
