Ringing the changes.....and a giveaway!

It has been a while since I’ve written a proper blog post! 13 days into the New Year and I’m just now getting round to wishing you all a very happy, healthy and prosperous new year! 

So, what have I been up to? Having some health issues – what’s new?! Little story……I was at the hospital yesterday for a minor procedure. Hubs collected me and said he had a wee surprise. I thought aww, how sweet – flowers maybe? I was in pain and feeling just a little bit sorry for myself at this point…. We arrive home and he drops the bombshell – “I thought you’d love it, but I didn’t get it finished on time”…..uh-oh…..this wasn’t sounding too good!! 

You can imagine I was looking forward to a little recovery period snuggled under the duvet……hmmm – not to be! The Husband had decided he would swap around the bedrooms (he felt like a change!). He had managed to spread the bedroom furniture around 3 rooms! I thought….. he must have a bed ready – looking hopefully around for our Kingsize…..all available beds were in bits, yup spread around 3 rooms! I ended up on the couch with the dog – haha! Gotta love him, but I could have killed him – what an eeijit!! It seems he got bored waiting for the hospital to ring! So glad he’s going back to work tomorrow – I might get some peace! Of course, I’m left with the mess to clear up as well! 

There’s more change in the air as well, big changes in my life, but that news will have to keep for another time. As soon as it’s official, I will let you know! 

Due to my current health issues, I am at home. As things improve, I have been trying to implement a daily schedule of sorts, so the day doesn’t run away with me. Not just a schedule of work, but a schedule of recovery too. This is my first day trying to implement it, so fingers crossed it doesn’t just end up on the ‘good intentions’ pile! 

So…..to ring in the New Year and resolutions and all that, I have been decluttering and revamping my stores. Delete, delete, delete! I have been enjoying updating and reorganizing and feel like my design store at least, is finally ready to be seen in public – lol! 

To ring the changes, of course I have to have a little giveaway! 

I have recently added 2 new products to the design store: 

Product 1: 

Product 2: 

I would like to give both of these away to 1 lucky winner! So scroll down and enter the rafflecopter – you never know, it might be you! Whilst the rafflecopter is ongoing, both products will be on at half price!! And there's more!  I will also be giving away a $25 Gift Certificate to my teaching resources store to spend as you wish - hopefully you will find something useful!  This little store has been languishing lately, as I have not posted anything new since the summer, but that is all about to change!  This will be my main focus over the next few months and I am excited to begin working on it again!

Also, before I sign off today – I joined together with some friends to bring back our ‘2 for Tuesdays’ deals. Many products are 50% off for today only. See my choices below. Just click on the pic to hop over to TpT and see what other great products are on offer or click {here}

    Our third son was a tad bit early and we weren't quite ready. My husband decided to paint and set up a nursery while caring for our other two boys in the 2-3 days that I was in the hospital. Needless to say, I came home with a new baby and a big ol' mess!
