Yes, I am busy.
I'm going to participate in a crafts fair this saturday and as you can imagine there is still LOTS to be done.
And yes, it is almost my b(irth)day.
You might wonder why I don't want to think about... because I'll be THIRTY!
That's right: 30!
Well, I have mixed feelings about it. As far as I'm concerned it's a birthday like any other, but people sure don't seem to agree with that. And every person who reminds me of my age definitely has an amused sadistic glint in their eyes.
All the past year I told myself I was fine with it, but as my last days as a twenty-something are ticking away, I'm not so sure anymore.
It does feel as a big change.
It feels as if my young days are really over now... (which might seem silly as I've been settled down in an adult life for so many years already)
I'm on the threshold of adulthood... that is a bit scary actually!!
I've heard of people that make lists of the things they want to do before they're 30; what about my list? I don't have one and there is no time make one anyway!
I would love to know how you all felt about turning 30! Or if you're not 3o yet, what are your thoughts on turning it?
Well enough about getting old...
Here are the two pocket-bags I made today.
Don't they have a lovely summery feel to them?!
I'm really behind on my sewing and of course this is the moment that my sewing machine is starting to act funny! It makes horribly ugly stitches and there is no time to have it fixed before the weekend. Luckily I've been able to borrow a sewing machine from one of Michel's collegues, so full speed ahead!
To end this post I'd like to share this photo of Amber.
She wanted to play a game with me this afternoon, but I was too busy sewing (bad mother).
So she played alone.
When I looked what she did, I was so proud...
She had found a photo in the leaflet and had arranged everything exactly as on the photo, which was really quite tricky!
It's lovely to feel so proud over such small things... why should I even care about turning 30?!
