What a lovely weekend...

Hi Girls, I hope you've all had a lovely sunny weekend. The weather here has been great and we've been lapping up the sunshine. Saturday was 26 degrees - warmth at last. Max played soccer, Eva spent the afternoon rollerblading and Jess was volunteering at an ice show so everyone was busy, busy. Today we did something for Mummy; we went to my first craft fair, not participating you understand just looking, but it was great fun. Even the kids had a good time! I bought some new fabric and the kids bought some wooden instruments in the shape of frogs - don't ask! I also did some sewing this weekend. A few weeks ago I bought some curtains for $3. I knew they wouldn't fit my windows but loved the fabric.

So I made Eva a little gym bag with one piece and I must admit, I love it! I am going to make the other piece into an apron. A bag and an apron for $3 that's frugal-tastic!!!

On another note; my friend Kasey over at my favourite blog Lola B's has had this great idea for a photo challenge. It was based on the idea of trying to capture different views of yourself - or your chosen subject. No editing or cropping just the raw image. I chose Eva; never shy to have her picture taken! I'm definitely no Annie Leibovitz, that's for sure, but I do enjoy taking photos. So here goes...






That kid is such a clown!

Have a great week girls and remember to live large,
