whilst trying to grab a couple of hours sleep last night (between feeds), i was thinking about what jobs needed doing round the house (as you do!!!!) i keep looking at the shower curtain in the bathroom as it needs replacing and was wondering what i could do with both the curtain and the rings...
the curtain can be washed in the machine at 40 degrees and either used as a covering for mine and maddies craft table and covering for the floor whilst maddie is painting outside.
the rings i thought would make great book rings as they clip together, ow about using them to arrange your ribbons or making an altered bag charm or big necklace for maddies dressing up box.

any other ideas?????
i will be playing with my shower curtain rings asap

these are my new love (apart from my little girl of course)-i bought these with my birthday £ and never got to wear them in before bettys arrival due to swollen ankles. as soon as i came out of hospital, i put them on straightaway as new dm's take a few wearings to settle them in. they are fab and may be very tempted to get a pair in yello or orange. i feel a scrapbook page coming on dedicated to my new dm's.

Hello, im so sorry for not writing on here for so long but since my last post i have become a mommy for the second time. 37 weeks pregnant and having so many problems with health that the hospital thought it was time to help me out and induce me on the 25th feb. 90 mins of labour with just gas and air to help and betty made her arrival weighing 7lb 2oz. all was well until 2 days later when her temp went up in the night and kept going up so she was taken from me and placed in scbu. she had caught an infection but nobody knew where from and after 5 days of antibiotics we were both discharged from staffs hospital. i will have plenty of photos and memorabilia to scrapbook real soon.

here is betty:
