Remember those bows I was making? Also life update.

I am sure I posted about them a while back but now I can't find the post though, I admittedly did not look very hard. This is how many are in my collection now. If only I had enough hair to wear them! I also made the headbands in the pic plus that Robot. The robot is a mini version of a robot I made for Bayley and now that I think about it, he has been MIA since the move. Oh dear!

Speaking of Bayley, he is going away on holiday camping next week for three weeks with his Mum and Granddad and I am going to miss him like crazy, it will be the longest he has been away from us since he was born. Waaah! While he is away, Steve and I are hoping to get B's new bedroom all sorted as a nice surprise when he gets back and hopefully the veg garden will get completed too. That whole area came to a standstill once the weather got cold and rainy. I am also hoping to get my pole installed in our bedroom and get the kitchen painted. It will be busy busy busy and I hope to keep this blog updated with the progress. Ooh I am starting a beginners sewing course next week, hopefully with Mama but possibly all on my lonesome, it should be good because at the moment I am basically just winging it whenever I try to make something so I think a bit of basic knowledge will do me a world of good.

See? Made these, they aren't awesome but they are wearable, I love the cats they are hilarious. 

Work is going good, I am still managing full time at the cafe and I still love it but the job makes me extremely time poor and fills up my 'interacting with people' quota to about 99.7%. I have been driving to and from work lately without the radio on just so I can squeeze some quiet time in to my day. I think the dreariness and coldness of Winter has been really getting to me lately, if you follow me on Twitter you have probably noticed what a sad sack I am in the mornings, I am just so over being cold all the time. I am so grateful that I live in Australia and not somewhere that actually gets super cold. Can you imagine how much of a baby I would be? It'd be horrid. I can't wait for the weather to start warming up and it makes me happy that the sun is making its little way back over here.

What else before I pack it in and go wash my hair then get to bed? I went to a Quantum healer and I have been really getting into that lately. I know my friend Steven Mcg is probably shaking his head at me right about now. Haha! Anyway, the healing worked well for my back and I have been getting Bayley to do it to me and it seems to be helping. Better than physio or acupuncture? I don't know, it's debatable but I don't think they would be able to get my periods back on track like the QH did. I also bought the book 'Amazing Face' by Zoe Foster and followed a bunch of her advice and I am happy to report that my skin is looking and feeling better than ever. Not quite at the point where I feel comfortable going out in no make up at all, but today I went out in just tinted moisturiser and for me, with my skin hang ups, that is a  pretty big deal.

Ok I have to go to bed because I need to get up super early to take B to kindy before I go to work. I will leave links to the books I mentioned at the end so you can have a little looksy.

Love Carrie xoxo xxxx

Amazing Face
Words cannot express how much I love this book. Full of great advice and Zoe is very witty. She also keeps in mind that not all of us can afford to drop a billion dollars on beauty products. Give it a go!

Quantum Touch: The Power to Heal

I haven't read this one yet but it has been on my Fishpond wishlist for a while and when I went looking for this link I noticed the price has dropped a lot so I am going to order it now. Hooray! It was recommended to me by my quantum healer and has had some good feedback. I will let you know how I go once it arrives.
