Busy busy and some EXCITING news!

Well, blogging has been slipping again. Things are getting busy around here. The house is still forsale but we have had a few people through since I last posted. No offers yet though {insert sad face here}. We now have our block of land on the market as well. We have been considering selling it for a while now and figure we really should reluctantly let it go while it can still fetch a bit of money.

Our move is getting closer and closer. I'm really starting to dread the whole thing, I hate packing boxes! Also with 2 little ones that go through a few clothes and other things everyday - what do you pack?! What do you leave out?! What do you do with the stuff you have 'left out' once everything else is packed? Not to mention the amount of 'stuff' we seem to have accumulated in the last 5 years! Were does it all come from?!

Luckily it seems I may have found one solution to a problem I have had....what to do with all this 'baby' stuff that I have and the twins no longer need or use. For example: one cot, a carseat, 2 rockers, HEAPS of baby clothes sizing from 00000 up to about 0 in both boys and girls colours, cot mobile, a TOMY sound and lights, a cradle and a lot more. At Twins playgroup on Monday a young couple came that are currently 30 weeks pregnant with twins (well dah! lol) and are really interested in buying a lot of this stuff off me as they really weren't planning on having a baby right now let alone two! So fingers crossed she takes it all, if she buys most of it I might just chuck the rest in for free. Less stuff to move in the end - did I tell you that the removalist company (well two) quoted us between $1700 and $2,200 to move us!!!!!!!

Now for the exciting news ........ Anna is crawling!!!!! She looks soooo cute and is just so proud of herself. May be not so exciting for you but to me - I thought it would never happen. They are almost 14 months old.

On another topic. I entered a competition over at DigiDiva Designs to win this cute little kit...

Well guess what! ...... I won! So I am just waiting for them to approve the coupon over at Gotta Pixel and then I can starting scrapping with it. I feel so chuffed, I RARELY win anything lol! If you like this kit you can grab it here.

I haven't done a lot of scrapping lately but I did complete one today...

Journalling says: "No matter what we did you would always end up like this
in the cot you shared with your twin brother Zachary.
I think you were after your own space and just trying to ESCAPE!

As for the nappies.....I have sewn and snapped Zach's nappy. He has worn it and it is in the wash. It works beautifully and looks and feels so nice! I must remember to take a photo as soon as it is dry. Anna's nappy is sewn. I just have to finishing overlocking the egde of the insert and put the snaps on and its ready to go. Hopefully in the next day or so as I have a LARGE box of nappies here that I have to take a photo of and list forsale over at Essential Baby first. They really need to go, I have to many!

Better go now.....and remember to make sure you leave a comment and say hi!

Take care!
