Some more pics of our fun night thanks to our fantastic friends Ange & Leigh- u guys rock!!!
Both us as adults and our children are extremely lucky to have such a wonderful friendship group - all coming together through common interests of trying to raise healthy, happy well rounded children- it's these people that truly make the whole process of growing and raising children and parenting as a small "tribe" so much better for all involved!!!  Thank you!!

2 markets in one weekend- 1 interstate

What a perfect way to recover from a big night- some cutting and sewing and the results about 30 more little lady snap purses!!
We have a super busy week ahead of us here at silver nutmeg head quarters this week including:
  • sewing up a storm of new products for this wkds markets
  • proofing and hopefully receiving our new logo
  • developing our new catalogue
  • finalising and launching our much asked after online store
  • catching up with some dear friends 
  • organising the children for the wkd
  • a few still secret things
  • and another visit to the dentist to get my stitches out - woohoo!!

Now depending on my motivation and energy levels this week will determine just how much of this list gets completed....wish me luck!!  What has everyone else got planned?

friday the 13th

This year Marty's birthday fell on Friday the 13th so earlier in the year we all decided to make a night of it and celebrate with a horror themed birthday!!
And it was a blast with everyone making the most amazing efforts with dressing up !!  We truly had an awesome night filled with many laughs indeed!!  The only regret - not enough photo's taken of everyone!!
