This is my trade secret.....
no big trade secrets but I try to have Balance in my life...taking a little time out for ME in a hectic day makes me a better mother, wife, and a happier more content person.
Baking is another thing i enjoy - It relaxes me!
I get my boys involved too and it always makes the house smell nice. My husbands Uncle owns a cake shop, a popular one too as its been featured in the Good Living section of the paper many times but I much prefer home made treats....most people do dont you think?!
this weekend I made chocolate caramel slice ( can you believe Im still melting chocolate easter eggs?) - the slice was perfect with an afternoon coffee...yum!
Being Creative - i tend to craft late at night but Im happy to be creating amongst my papers and craft supplies... fingers always sticky from glue (my favourite is the reliable UHU stick) so baby wipes nearby are handy whilst crafting!!
i love to surround myself with sweet things - ribbons, vintage images, ephemera, lace scraps ... my collection of vintage children books always make me smile.....
Finding Inspiration in the everyday ....beautiful visuals, wonderful blogs, random acts of Kindness, nature ...our world is a special place! now Im sounding kinda corny...heheee
