I survived the Christmas rush

Day 2 of my blog, and I'm lucky to be here after surviving the Christmas rush at the shopping centre.
Got most of my Christmas shopping done today, a little more tomorrow and I'll be done. With the way things are at the moment I've decided to only spend $250 on each child and to craft the rest of my gifts. Will get some pictures up of the gifts once I've finished crafting.
In the following weeks I'll post some links of my favorite crafting sites.
Well I'm beat, going to make a hot cuppa (it's quite wet and cool here even though we're in Summer) and get some things organized for my swaps on
Until next time...

My first post

Wow, so I finally got around to starting a blog.

I'm a stay at home (for now) Mum of 2 boys. Elias is 14 and putting me through all the grief a typical teenage boy gives his Mum, at 34 I feel a little to young to be going through this LOL. Malik is 5 (turning 6 in January) and is so bossy I feel as though I work for him (well I suppose I do really).
I love to craft (hence the name of my blog) in my spare time and have really gotten caught up in the Dotee craze. My boys can't understand my want to make and swap these little dolls (males hmmmppph). With the end of year school holidays starting today :( I'm not sure how much time I'll have to craft.
I live in Adelaide, Australia but come from Cairns, if it wasn't for the Ikea store I'd move back home in a jiffy (and no I'm not kidding, I would never kid about Ikea) I'm absolutely, well and truely addicted to that place.

Well that's it for now (Elias is on his way home with a group of mates) Will be back if I survive the onslaught.
