I can't share the whole LO yet, just in case I do decide to enter it into the Mojo blog DT. And thanks to all those people who have said I am good enough :)
I am really missing the HS:MS prompts, the game that has been started just isn't the same... I like seeing different interpretations of the same prompt... so I am really hoping that Nikki and Barry will start giving prompts.... go on, you know you want to:)
Better go and paint my little clown ready for nursery... be back later with piccies.

This rattle used to be Oliver's... I bought it because I really liked it and Oliver was never really interested in it... and to be honest Harry isn't either!!! I on the other hand am still fascinated by how the orange balls change to pink when you tip it...LOL!!!
Tomorrow is 'clown' day at nursery, so we have been to the toy shop to buy face paints. It will be the first time that Oliver will have had his whole face painted... so we'll see how it goes, I'm looking forward to doing the painting though.
My smile for today is because Harry 'talked' for the first time... he was sat in his pushchair whilst I put the washing out and he was jibber jabbering away to himself. Now obviously he makes noises all the time, but this was different... he was really expressing himself... talking away to his bling rings (teething rings).
There are a couple of DT comps being advertised at the moment for blogs... not sure if I am going to go for them... one part of me says yay, the other part of me says nay. Might do the LOs anyway, and see how they turn out...
I started a LO last night, but it just wasn't happening... so as I have been really good and done lots of housework today I am hoping to get it done tonight. Will upload it later... if it gets done:)

Ornamental fine wire work. Show us filligree in your space.
When I saw todays word I thought oh eck, we don't have filligree in this space... then I saw this necklace on the coffee table. I bought this on Saturday morning and wore it to my friends wedding the same day.... not what you'd call fancy, and it only cost £1.95, but it's the nearest to filligree i've got!
And these are the first photos i've taken with my new camera... not understanding it yet, but I like the fact I can focus on small things...yay!!!
It's been a bit of a poop day today, lousy weather, poorly sick niblet who has screamed ALL day, an Oliver who has tried to match the noise created by niblet....aaaaarrrgggghhhh!!!! So my smile came when Rob walked in the front door and I could pass the baby!!! Makes me sound like a bad mum... but OMG what a day!!!

It does look better irl... the butterflies are stitched on down the body so the wings stand up, and the beads add texture which you can't really see... and the chipboard swirl has glitter embossing powder on it.... yummy!!! Hope you like it Annie, I'll pop it in the post to you:)
What made me smile today? My dslr arrived and it is fabby doodle do!!! I just need to learn how to use it properly now... tis all a bit scary, with so many buttons and sticky out bits... LOL!!!
A round, deep dish. Show us a bowl in your space today.
You really really need to keep an eye on Barry's blog... only day 2 of playing along with HS:MS and WOW!!! those photos are truly fantastic. I for one will be blog stalking, even at the risk of developing an inferiority complex...LOL!!!
Well my piccie for today is of a cute little bowl I got for Harry... it says 'give peas a chance' in the bottom... not flippin likely, peas are the devil's food!!! There is nothing nice about them, yet they are everywhere... peas are evil and should be banned... when I am queen, peas will not be allowed to be grown... it will be the law!!
My new camera still has not arrived... mind you I have had a card pushed through the door saying there is a parcel to be collected from the depot... so fingers crossed.

Think I may need to move....
*note to self* remember to shut the blinds if the urge to happy dance takes hold again!!!
So all be it a cringe story too when I think about the moment I turned round and saw him grinning away at me... it makes me smile.
Moving or extending in only one direction. Show us straight in your space today.

My take on this weeks sketch is a LO to contrast with the last one I posted of niblet... proof that at times (usually 10:00am, 4:oopm and 7:30pm) he turns into the baby from hell!!! The halo slips and little bumps appear on his head where the horns try to poke through!!!
The journalling is so true though, I have scratch marks on the back of my arm where he pinches and scratches at me!!!
This has made me think of another little project I am going to start... a Smile Diary. Everyday for 1 month I am going to think of something that has made me smile that day, whether it be a conversation I have had, something I have read, an image I have seen... whatever, no matter how big or small. I am then going to record that thing in a journal, so that I will end up with a book of happiness for those times when you need a little pick me up. This is my page 1...
If anyone else wants to do this with me, spread the laughter and share your giggles, post a link to your blog.
Her Space : My Space
A liquid refreshment. Find one in your space.

Last night I did a little late night scrapagogoing!!! The June kit is gorgeous and I am very impressed withmyself that I have actually used it so soon... The piccie is of Niblet, and fitted really well with the little go go challenge. Harry is very much like Oliver, and yes obviously people are going to comment on that... but personality wise he is soooooooooo different. Oliver is a placid little boy but Harry has quite a temper, is already stubborn and strong willed. I just really hope that people will see him for the unique little person he is, and not just assume he is 'like his brother'.

Apparently I have been 'outed' and 'shamed'.Hhhhhmmmm, nope, nothing to be ashamed of here!!! I would however be quite ashamed if I was one of a few people who hijack a thread to get comments on my gallery... might as well go round waving a banner saying 'desparate for praise' on it.
he he he.... desparate-for-praise-athon!!!
And I would be doubly ashamed if I went on to a public forum and started actual name calling... Harmless fun within a team thread, what does that say about me? I like to have a giggle... Using profanities and name calling, what does that say about that person?!?! I know which character trait i'd rather have!
Anyways after the hilarity of that mountain out of a mole hill... I got a very eciting email yesterday... will keep you in suspenders for a bit longer though, coz I can smell pizza, so am off to fill my face!

I must admit I have a touch of OCD when it comes to this chore... I just CAN'T not iron!!! I have tried and tried but I can't do it... does this mean I need help?!?!?!
Then on Thursday I went to mum's to get Olliepants back... had my hair cut way too short, but it'll grow back soon, I hope...
On Friday I started feeling unwell with dizzy spells, then when I got home I got worse!!! Saturday and Sunday were spent lying down, being sick and bumping into things.... I couldn't even bear to look at a tv/pc screen, so coming on here was a no go. Infact it was because of this symptom that Rob knew I was proper poorly...LOL!!!
Anyways, a trip to the docs yesterday and 4 doses of meds and I am upright again.... woooohoooo!!!
So what have I missed? and what do I need to catch up on?
Pencil Lines #36, a fun and busy sketch that I can't wait to do... just need to sweet talk Rob to going into the loft and printing some piccies for me, either that or use some old photos still waiting to be scrapped!!!
Scrapbooking the secret prompt #2... will have to think about this one... but have you seen Jems take on the prompt... how fab is that!!!
DT Sarabinder for Crop Til You Drop... half finished, just need to get a into g and complete it.
RAK #5... idea in head, materials gathered, hoping to do this tonight.
Birthday card to make for team swap.
