I had a great time last night. I met some lovely ladies and bought a very funky beanie, this is J my husband posing for the camera. I am happy to say that my pin wheel hair pins were a hit, as were my coasters and pillows. I got asked to bring some of my creations to one of the ladies hair salons. They will help me get Kazza's Happiness out there, spread the love and help with some sales. Thats exciting for me. This is my little table that was kindly set up by Lindy's daughter Sage.
In other news last night, Ethan had his second footy game of the year. Our team won and Ethan got 2 tries. A famous face was there also. One of the Bronco's players nephew is in our team. The poor fella, he couldnt really watch the game because heaps of kids were asking for an autograph off him. But, I guess thats how the cookie crumbles when your an A Grade footy player.

Tonight, I am off to 'Home Craft Market Night' at a friends house. Lindy knows a nice bundle of people that like to create and make lovely things. She was talking to my sister (as my sister loves to do..talk :) Nicole told Lindy that I have Kazza's Happiness, hence my invite. A little 'market' will be set up at Lindy's house. I think its a great idea. I cant wait to see what tonight brings!
I can't believe Easter is next week. I can handle Easter but not 100% sure I can handle the Easter holidays. With my lovely, warm, wonderful yet 'very active' 5 (nearly 6) year old boy Ethan, I think its going to be a challenge. I am very sure the school holidays will be interesting. I think alot of planning and trips to the park is in order. On the topic of Easter..Our school had a family fun night last night, there was an Easter Egg Raffle and Ethan won!!! He was a happy little man indeed.
Here's some things I have been up to. I finally thought of a way to make hair pin pin wheels. I love pin wheels. Its my little obsession at the moment.
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend. I am sure I will :)

Arh children. I have 2. 2 boys. I have Caleb, who is nearly 8 and Ethan (he's the ones in the photos), who is nearly 6. Being a mum is a wonderful, wonderful thing and love being a mum. Ethan, however, he has a habit on how to push every single button in my body. He is in yr 1 this yr, which is great. He has great teachers, nice school and is a smart little kid. However, nearly every single day at school he gets in trouble for something. It doesn't help that there are 2 little boys in his class that stray Ethan away from making good choices, therefore he gets in trouble. Me and the husband have been over and over with Ethan on how to act, how to make better and right choices etc. But nothing seems to get through to him. BUT, this year Caleb and Ethan has started to pay football. Ethan loves his footy, you give him anything that looks like it can be kicked, then he'll kick it. So, after speaking to his teacher this afternoon, I told him that he is not going to footy training tonight. Oh, did he go off! I have never seen a boy get so angry before. Now, this is the part of being a mum I don't like. Seeing your little boy cry and scream and cry and cry. I was almost crying because I could tell how much this meant to him . But I learnt from my parents that sometimes you just have to be mean.
I am hoping that he has learnt a huge lesson from this and that he will make better choices at school and stop getting into trouble. I will keep you updated.

I had a wonderful morning at the markets yesterday. There was sun, but the rain made an appearance a couple of times. But other than that, a good morning was had. My lovely friends, my sister and my bro in law came down to check it all out, which helped boost my confidence alot. I also got alot of feed back from people (family, friends and strangers) which I have taken on board. So all, in all, a good morning was had.
I have already started on 'the next big thing' for Kazza's Happiness. Lots of surprises to come.

I did it, I went through with it, I was nervous as all hell and stressing a little bit, but I did it. I shaved for a cure. I think I will like having my hair short. One of the reasons why I kept my hair long for so long was for my wedding day and I good my hair looked when it was straighten. But now, I am short. Short, short, short. I feels great, and the feeling that I have for doing it for such a worthy cause and for such a wonderful person makes it even more worth while.
If you ever want to take a challenge and you don't mind losing a bit of hair, Shave For A Cure. I am pretty sure I have raised about $1,000, which is well worth the effort and its great knowing that all money raised is used to help people and families touched by Leukemia.

So I get my head shaved tomorrow. One of my friends shaved her head yesterday and she looks great. She said that its such a great change and the feeling you feel is amazing. I cant wait to get rid of my hair, if I wasn't shaving it, my hair would have been cut ages ago, so in a way its going to be good to get rid of y hair, but I am feeling great that I am doing this for a great person that is dearly missed and that makes it all worth while.
In other news, I am hoping it doesn't rain on Sunday for my 'debut' market stall. I think I am all set, although I am stressing a little because I am not sure weather I have enough 'creations', so I am madly sewing just incase for back up. Although I am sure that I will forget something.

A couple of more sleeps until when you ask? Well, there are 2 things that I am most excited about. On Saturday the 13th March, that's next Saturday, I will have no more long hair, I am shaving it for The Worlds Greatest Cure, I am very excited, this week I plan to straighten my hair and do some crazy styles with it. I only realised the other day that I wont have my hair this long again for some time, I am pretty sure I will shed a tear and also lots of laughs when it all happens. For all the Brisbane people out there, if your on the northside of town, the lovely ladies at the Hairhouse Warehouse at Strathpine will be doing 'the cut' at 9:30am. I will have my collection tins down there aswell.
The second thing I am excited about is that Kazza's Happiness will be having it first ever market stall at Ferny Grove, Samford Rd. There is a Facebook Kazza's Happiness group and I have received some kind comments from people, that is what gets me going (and awake) when I lie in bed at 5:30 on a cold a rainy morning. My head runs and thinks a million miles an hour sometimes though, I start something, then while I am doing that, I think about what other stuff I could craft and then that idea is great, I finish what I am doing then go onto what I thought of but think of something else. Its a good thing, but I think I have to get into the habit of writing everything down and a timeline for the day ahead.
So this week, I am finishing things that I have not yet fully completed, (because of the above), checking that I have everything on my Market Check List, thanks to Curly Pops for the Bad Skirt link of what I need for the day. I also have to do a banner and a sign, I am hoping that it could be sunny in Brisbane for just one day, sunny enough for me (with the help of my kidlets) to paint the banner and the sign. Its all very exciting.
So if your over the northside of Brisbane next weekend, be sure to check me out, (without the long hair), it would be great to meet you.

Its crazy weather at the moment isn't it?? Its been raining in Brisbane for about 2 days, non stop. Sunday, was good. There was just enough sunshine for my washing to dry, which on a Sunday, makes me happy. I love the rain and the cold, although saying that, I don't do very well in winter. Summer, I cant stand, its so hot and I always get sunburn even with tons of sunscreen on. Winter will be interesting this year. I will be shaving my head (number 3) for Shave For A Cure on the 13th March, so I do believe that I will be feeling the cold more than usual this year. All for a good cause though. I'm looking forward to it.
I have been working on my 'debut market stall'. I have uploaded some pics on Facebook aswell. I am constantly thinking of ideas and what I can make and create next. I have to thank my sister in law Lisa. The poor girl, every time I create or finish making something, I run down to her room and ask for her opinion. She's a champ that girl...Thanks Lisa. :)
My aim is to create things that are different, unique and will make people smile. I like to think as myself as a fun and happy person, so that's what I create. Fun and happy things for people who like to smile.
Speaking of happy and smiling. Have you heard the new Train song? Hey Soul Sister..love it!! Its one of those songs that get in your head and you sing it over and over again. Its great!!
