Filling my nights...

Since my hubby is away interstate most of the time, I have found myself hunting for things to keep my mind occupied so I'm not just dwelling on how much I miss him... Which is enormously...

Nights are by far the worst, once my littlies are in bed I find myself with hours and hours to fill. They are both in bed by 7 and I cannot get to sleep when my hubby is away, so i have had to look for things to pass the time and keep me interested... Usually till the wee hours of the morning...

Which is how my blog and crafting/creating interest has grown hugely in the last 5 months... I find myself trawling the net looking for things to inspire me, things to make and things that just make me happy to look at!! I constantly find myself bookmarking things for future reference and printing off loads of tutorials for things I want to make.

My fave blog of all is One Crafty Mumma... I discovered this blog long before my hubby left and have loved it ever since. One of the best things about it is that my Mia loves looking at it with me and telling me the things she wants to create....

At her request I now have 8 Eggies lined up waiting for ribbons around their stuffed bellies, 2  polymer hearts waiting for their plaited cord and I have been asked to hunt out a mini heart cutter (tomorrow while she is at school) so we can make the heart buttons as soon as she gets home. She tells me they are to go on the front of the Eggies for her girl cousins... Love it...

Simply put this one blog has been a great distraction for me, much better than tv anyday...
