Good morning all!
So the summer holidays are officially over for most children today. The last six weeks for us have flown by. Little Hippy did really well and made it to school on time, dressed! That may sound odd but for those that follow this blog they will remember that she has been suffering from anxiety (school seems to be the trigger) and OCD as a result of the anxiety. She worked really hard yesterday and this morning to try and combat her fears and stay on top of the stress and she did really well. She did get upset when it was time for me to go but her teacher gently led her away. I'm hoping that as she did this well on possibly the worst day of the year anxiety wise, things can only get better.
Well done Little Hippy!
Here she is with her handmade puppets:
I've had some time off over the holidays to enjoy with my daughter and I was lucky enough (again) to spend the last week (and a bit!) in Cornwall with Mr Hippy - just the two of us - which was fantastic. We had a lovely time touring the coastline and just being free to do whatever we pleased. We went for some lovely romantic meals and we took a water taxi from Cornwall over to Devon for a day trip. We did tons of walking (I reckon I hiked up more hills than we had meals) - we crammed in an awful lot!
I definitely think we have both gone back to work feeling much better for the break. We both needed it. We are busy planning for next year; there are quite a few exciting things in the pipeline that I can't wait to tell you about! I am getting impatient and want next year to be upon us already.
The Autumn and Winter mini catalogue is now out. I have put a link on the left hand side of this page - please let me know if you would like a paper copy (which I will send out once I have received them). It is packed FULL of beautiful products and crafting and home decor projects for the colder months. It runs from now until the 5th January 2015. Please message me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like a copy.
There are a few good offers from Stampin' Up! running at the moment which I will be update onto this website during the course of the day. Please refer to the Offers page of my website (or press this link!).
I'm hoping to start loading up some more inspirational projects each day now, I just need to get into the swing of our routine again!
