So I've gone a bit crazy and decided to attempt Project 365 this year. Except this year is a leap year so technically it's Project 366. The idea is that you take a photo everyday for a year. I'm not going to take it too seriously. I'm just going to take photos on my iPhone. Every now and again I'll post them on FuShMuSh. I think it will be a nice chronicle of the year.

Project 366 - 01
  1. Day001: Perfect at Copacabana Beach
  2. Day002: Evie going for a swim
  3. Day003: Locked out

  6. Day006: Challenging times

So 2011 is officially a good year. We got our happy ending - our beautiful daughter Evie. I thought I'd put together a little photo mosaic from all our FuShMuSh posts this year. As you can see Evie features quite heavily. Aw, she's so beautiful (and clever...)

This is my favourite Christmas present this year. I received this family necklace as my present from Evie. (She's not quite up to online shopping so she may have had some help from Mummy and Daddy). I think it's sweet without being overly cheesy.
Family Necklace

It was bought from Eclectic Wendy Designs on Etsy. I was impressed with her service as Evie ordered it after the cut off date for Christmas and it still arrived in time.

The lead up to Christmas was so busy that I had to let go of most of the crafting plans that I had made.

I was a bit disappointed. I had pinned lots of ideas in the middle of my uni semester. While uni is on I'm not able to craft. I plan instead and use these plans as motivation to make it through the uni semester. I was going to try to make a handmade present for all of the kiddies. But in the end I realised that my plans were unrealistic and were causing more stress than enjoyment. So I decided that in the future I would make birthday presents and buy Christmas presents. With that decision made I was able to relax.

I did manage to squeeze in this bit of Christmas crafting for the boys. On impulse I bought some Christmas sock monkey fabric when I was Windows shopping during one of Evie's late night feeds. It was really too cute to resist. I used the sock monkey fabric to make the boys some personalised quilted Christmas placemats for Christmas day. They were just the right sized quilt project for me. Not too big for me to stuff up majorly but big enough to let me practise my quilting skills.
Craft: Placemat Oscar
Craft: Placemat for Leo

A success I think. I'm adding personalised placemats to my list of standard present ideas.
