Big News

Warning personal post!!!

Hi guys,

WOW, it's been a little quiet at my wee little blog lately hasn't it. I keep mentioning I have alot going on recently and have been pretty run off my feet. Well... now that everything is FINALLY official I would like to share my big news with you all.

One of my family members had a little girl 6 mths before I gave birth to my daughter Riley. Due to circumstances which I cannot go into the little girl (Lilly) was unable to be cared for by her parents and went into foster care. I couldn't fathom the thought of this little girl getting stuck in the foster system all her life and not getting to know her family so in August last year we made the decision to get assessed as foster carers for this little girl. And we were successful. So lots of months later after we went through all the paper work and formalities and all the rest we finally have a foster child. YAY! She has been living with us permanently since last Sunday (a week so far) and all is going pretty well. Riley loves having a big sister and someone she can play with all the time.

On top of this huge news I also have a new job which I am starting in 2 weeks time, Again this is another thing that has dragged on and on (Was supposed to start in November) but I cannot wait for the new possibilities it will bring. It will be a bit of a change from my current industry but I feel this is the best time for me to turn over a new leaf and learn something new.

It feels nice to finally share a little bit about what has been happening around here. I have been very busy but feel so blessed to be able to make a difference for someone who really needs it.

Now it wouldn't be a blog post without a card. I made a card for Lilly for her 2nd birthday back in December and keep forgetting to put it on here so this seems the most fitting post for it. I still 3 mths later really love the card...

Stamp Set: Butterfly Prints, On your Birthday
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Perfect Plum
Cardstock: Perfect Plum, Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Whisper White
Accessories: Dimensionals, Pretty In Pink Satin Ribbon, SAMJ, Linen Thread, Big Shot, Top Note Die

Thanks for looking and hopefully I will have time to start creating again soon
