i live in a house with 3 boys.
all who barrack for collingwood, much to my disgust.
i think it has something to do with the brainwashing. J takes them every year to the Magpie Club family day. what kid wouldn't barrack for them with lunch, face paint, clowns and one on one time with dad.
Go Hawks !!!

first attempts

after a long night trying to set this blog up, I think I am on the way. after being woken a couple of times in the night by button 1 wanting water, i started to think about all that i wanted to put on here, and write - can you believe it - i can't remember any of it now its daylight !!!
i am slowly adding some inspirational blogs that i enjoy reading.
i am madly trying to pack for the snow. this weekend is the start of the ski season, but little or no snow is promised so i'm looking forward to a few days sitting by the fire collecting my thoughts, recharging my batteries and maybe some sewing !

the beginning

this is my first post and first ever attempt at a blog. Yikes !!
2 little buttons came about after deciding to pursue an interest in creating craft.
I have 2 little buttons at home. One who is 4, and the other 18 months. Both are kindered spirits and bring me lots of joy and love.
The idea to create and sell my wares is something that I have wanted to do since button 1 was born, but some how it just keeps being put on the back burner. However I feel that now I need to do something and something in the creative area of me is starting to stir. So maybe by jotting down my ideas here I will be able to catalogue my thoughts and make sense out of them in the hope that I can create some creations !

Mothers Day

Mothers Day
Hugo had made me a beautiful card and bookmark for me for mothers day. he had hidden the present when he got home from kinder. Grandma had helped him find a special spot ( Daddy was away for work, and grandma and Popeye had come over to look after Archie while i was on a fantastic kinder excursion.) he was very excited this morning when he woke up to go and get my present. he was so proud, and he had every right to be it was beautiful.

morning tea with Granny Pat

Lunch with Grandma and Popeye

This doesn't happen very often !!

this special time with Popeye and grandma means more to me than any present i could get.
