my (late) creative space

Wow, the past few weeks have been so full on, now I really understand what people mean by living life to the full. Just have two kids and lots of friends to visit and catch up with and a garden, some chooks and a sewing room and you're pretty close. I feel so lucky though, and I love where our family is at at the moment... Josh is finally starting to do some interesting stuff, and earning some money -sometimes- Tahi is just a delightful nearly four year old, great big brother (considering his age) and so smart. He's recently taken to building marble runs with blocks and is very talented. For one they actually work, and they are really inventive. He's also getting into music, and loves playing with the little guitar Josh found him at the tip. His favorite band is Queen, but he also likes Def Leppard, Autozamm (His uncle's band), T-Rex,... Anything with guitars and drums that plays fast. That's my boy.
Miro has just started shuffling, sitting up by himself and trying to crawl/ pull himself up. It feels like we went through 10 months of inertia and all of a sudden he's all over the place. He's is happy all the time and is so cute and fun, he loves his brother and is just all go all day. We took him to his first swimming lesson last week, he loved it!
Parenting is such a crazy, incredible eye opening adventure, I can't stop myself from wondering how I could be so lucky to have given birth to two such amazing beings, and I'm sure all the mums out there think the same. I feel blessed to have had this opportunity in my life.
Anyway, this is my creative space for this week: a snack bag! One of the on-my-list-for-ages projects. I used a coffee sack scrap (from another project hopefully soon to be finished), lined with organic fair trade cotton tee shirt (left over from my KowTow stash), put some velcro to close it. Pretty simple, Tahi loves it and it's easy to wash, no nasty plastic. I then decided to make a couple more for Tahi's little friends we visited over the week end. I tried using snaps, but I think I like velcro best.
