Busy busy day....

Today I did loads of washing, the sun was nice and strong so I took advantage and hung everything out to dry.
I can see thunder clouds looming in the distance so hope everything dries before rain comes.
I took the boys for haircuts, stopped at the fruit grocer and got some more supplies as I promised my niece I would bake and decorate her birthday cake! I think Im going to keep it simple but I have a pink and white colour scheme in mind. I love how Tessa Kiros decorated this cake! gorgeous!

Speaking of gorgeous, look what came in the mail from Karianne!
This is for the Happy swap that was organised by Karen. The deal was to buy something that makes you happy and to meet a new blogging friend!
Thats what swaps are all about!
What a beautiful girly box and have a peek inside - so many lovely things! its made me very happy!!

Ive finished my two projects for the magazine, my kitchen has been sent off to all the girls involved
so lately Ive been craving for some more crafty challenges.....
so Ive signed up for this swap and this one
and Im also taking part in a Round Robin book collabaration that Dede is organising! Its something new for me!! should be fun!

Have a FAB weekend everyone!!
