Don't you just love the freedom of knowing that you are naughty and that no one is around to see you doing it!! I have the house to myself. One of those rare nights that Hubby is still at work....Hannah is out having dinner with her in laws, Matthew is at a sleep over...and I am doing something that drives my Hubby insane and the kiddies are always getting told off for!! yay!!! I love being a 'growed up'!!!! I have all of the Family room lights on, as I am painting some Halloween pictures on to fabric, BUT.....I am also watching Season 1 of Felicity on the tv but, I have it paused and on mute, because I am also watching Jane Eyre on the computer AND I have the stereo blasting while I paint!!! Loudly belting out Madonna 'Sorry' and my Chemical Romance 'I don't love you' with just a touch of Linkin Park 'What I've Done'.......yay...oh the freedom of being able to wander from happy place to happy place!! Watch an episode of Felicity, watch 20 minutes of Jane Eyre, paint for 30 minutes....I have been doing this for almost 4 hours now!! Sadly.....2 of the people I share a house with (Dear Hubby and Dear Daughter) will both be arriving home within the hour, so I shall have to pick ONE thing to do, and stick with it!!! Eeeek....which to choose!!! Well off to enjoy the last few moments of freedom!!
Spring is almost here!! Part of me is a little excited....part of me..hmmmm...not so much!! Visions of gardens blooming, and gorgeous flowers bursting out, gets me alittle excited about heading down to the nursery and spening wads of cash buying all of the new seedlings. The part of me that is not excited...is the hayfever suffer!! I hate hatefever....we all suffer from it, watching my 13 year old sitting on the couch rubbing and rubbing his eyes until he looks like I have beat him, it's awful!! I have to have the yard man (Andy, you are wonderful!!!) come in and do the yard as poor Hubby will just sneeze and sneeze and sneeze some more if I make him go and do it. But, with Spring comes new signs!!! Of course!!! Totally stoked at how they have turned out......all of them are 24 inches x 6 inches, and you can check them out on The Choclate Crow Trader this month!!!
Happily married to someone who still makes my heart skip a beat, he is the most supportive and patient hubby a person could have!! I have three beloveds, My sweetie Hannah who is Mother to Isobel who is just the most precious wonder *sigh* and Master Matthew who is always going to be my dear little boy even when he is not! Appleberry Farm was started by my sister in law Leanne and myself 1n April 2004 when we realised that we loved crafting so much that we had to turn it into a business! We were store front for almost 2 years, but, decided that being a business 'business' was not for us, you really don't have alot of time for sewing when you are trying to keep up with book work!! So we are a mainly online business, particpating in the occasional craft show within the regional area. I have a total love of primitive and shabby and old goodies and take great joy in turning something boring into something stained and different.
