Mr LK has returned from Chicago, once through the front door he was brutally pushed aside and his bag ransacked by two small children who had heard a rumour he was in possession of new pairs of crocs. Unfortunately for them, their mother beat them to it, the call of Orla goodies being stronger...!
He was promptly given a hug as the good man had also picked up the latest copy of 'Mothering' magazine, which contains a rather lovely and beautifully written article called 'Crafty Mama's'.
I am doubly pleased to have a copy of this as it also led me to the blog of the writer, The Artful Parent, which is well worth a visit.
In other news, the mobile for the mobile swap is complete and on its way across the pond to it's recipient.
I am embarrassed it is so late, but better late than never.
And finally, after Trashalou's raffle to raise money for the Bushfire Appeal, the winner of Marmalade requested that she be sent off to the Toy Society, who are collecting donations to be passed on to children who lost everything in the fires.
That means Rusty is all alone and in need of a home. So begins the 'find Rusty a home' appeal. By way of apologising for completely forgetting it was my two year blogiversary last week (oops!), who would like to offer this poor, lonely pup a home?
Just leave a comment on this post, you can take part in a little market research for me, and let me know your favorite craft book, and why. Comments will be closed as of midnight on Wednesday 25th March, so you have almost a week.
In the meantime, if you are in the UK and a mum, Happy Mother's Day for Sunday!
