Oh my goodness it's turned cold here! I don't like this weather, the only thing it's good for is hot chocolates & pretty scarves. It's also the first week of school holidays here & my two outdoorsy kids can't handle being stuck indoors - they get a bad case of cabin fever. So i've been busy keeping them occupied & trying to keep boredom at bay - we've  been creating yummy goodies with bread mixes - bread rolls & scrumptious cinnamon scrolls....mmm, they've also been doing lots of drawing & colouring & we made some puff paint that you microwave - that was fun! Go here for the tutorial. We've also had some board games & a trip to the local indoor pool. But thanks to my lovely sister Vanessa who popped in for a visit today, they have now both gone for a couple of nights sleepover at her house with their cousins!! So it'll be just little Scarlett here for a couple of's the serenity? *Thanks Vanessa* 
On Sunday my sister in-law, Holly & i went for a little child-free day trip to Melbourne for the Baby & Toddler Expo that i won tickets too, we had a great time checking out some fabulous stalls, i could've spent a lot of money on gorgeous stuff, but i was good & instead walked away with a lot of inspiration. After we left we found this lovely, girly Christina Re cafe in Collingwood & did a quick u-turn for a cuppa.

A few years ago i was an obsessive scrapbooker, sadly i lost interest & unfortunately haven't scrapped any pages for about two years - which means i have done absolutely none for Scarlett. I have felt guilt over this & even The Bloke has told me that one day the older two will be looking through their albums & Scarlett will have nothing! But i must say, walking into this store has thankfully re-stored my love for paper! I bought a few sheets of gorgeous Christina Re paper to start some pages for Scarlett & have since been browsing my old favourite scrapbooker's blogs & pinning lots of inspiration over at i can't wait to go through my stash & rediscover what i have & get lost amongst the paper, double-sided tape & brads again! But right now i'm going to go & snuggle in front of the heater with a hot chocolate & my book.........ahhh......did i mention the serenity?
