I'm Back

Ok I'm back, long time waiting,

First of all I want to thank each and everyone of you beautiful lady's for your well wishes, they all meant alot to me. Now the visit to the hospital visit went really well, results came back, as I have had heartburn for the last two years, I was alittle worried that the acid may have caused some damage, while waiting wondering what it was going to be, ulcers, the C word, nothing like that, clean bit of health there, but did say I have anxiety, and that I need to relax alot and not stress out, and not to worry about house work for a while....Yeah right, So to destress myself I've stayed away from blogging and drop alot of smaller things for awhile, which has been quite hard, after selling our house No I haven't started backing yet, I have had my daughters party to organize, Greek Easter no I'm not Greek hubby is, make new stock, take my girls to friends parties, find and contact wholesalers, and paint shop tell you about that bit alittle later, awwwwww I'm just tied just thinking about it, and my house.... trust me looks like a bomb has it who can work in such a mess, not me that's for after all that my time has been spent listening to relaxation music, having massages, and having my hair down on Tuesday...yeah for that as I'm looking like and old bag right

Ok now I'd like to share my daughter Anastasia's Birthday Party with you!

Cupcake theme is what was asked for this year, so I was sitting out side having a cupper looking at all the rubbish piled in the corner, trying to think cupcakes for this party, I had a brain wave two hanging wire pots where just thrown in that corner of rubbish sitting how you see them in the above picture, I screamed cupcake and run and grab the wire pots and got to work, threading the chain so it sat right, wire the two together, threaded scrap piece of shabby rose fabric, lace doyle for the icing, added a rose and beaded butterfly and whola...we have this beautiful cupcake to hang near the party table,
which lead me to this one, another hanging pot, painted pink, large rounded piece of foam from a chair, covered and tucked rose fabric, knitted trim, paper flowers and glittered feather leaves, another one finished to hang for the party.
Some sugar fix for the children to go on the party table, which half of it was forgotten to be put out, the children where more interested in the BBQ cooking out side.

Now to the cake I made, How beautiful did my cupcake turn out, I'm so proud of my self, I must confess, I was inspired by Natasha's cupcakes, but you could eat theses ones, and let me just say they went down so well the children loved them and all the mum's wanted to keep them for them self' and to my surprise they tasted fantastic.......can I join the cupcake club now.....hee, hee.

Everyone sing happy birthday, I just realized I didn't get a full shot of the party area, there was a timber chandelier hanging in the center with vine leaves twisted around it, lace hanging, with butterflies and cupcakes hanging......oooohh where is that image!

all the children waiting for the wizard to set up they are so excited, lady's of Melbourne if you have not seen Manny the wizard you must his magic trick are just unbelievable, he even have the parents fooled and amazed!! I did film one of the tricks but I ran out of upload space on my PC it's still on my camera, maybe later I can show this to you, but anyway, not only that he plays games with children and face paints, for the price you pay he is well worth your money. Manny the Wizard and AnastasiaAnastasia and her little friend Jordan! she keeps telling me he is her boyfriend and I say no he is your cute!

Ok so there is alittle with what I've been up too.....once again thank-you lady's for your well wishes.....oh I forgot it's been 8 day's now and no heartburn....I'm going to start making my way around your blogs soon, hope you all are well!

Chat soon!
