Update on me

Well I'm very pleased I have finished making my Christmas cards and made a dent in my Christmas sweet jars! Although I'm very disappointed to say I am now one day overdue!! And very impatient and grumpy! My first son was born on his due date but I went into labour the day before and my second son was two days early. This is officially the most pregnant I have ever been. Not horrific I know but I had so banked on baby arriving before its due date I am now very miserable!!!

And getting messages every day for the last two weeks asking if baby has arrived yet has not improved my mood!!! Anyway I wont rant for the whole post!

I can't wait for baby to arrive so we know whether we have a little Olivia or a little Oliver! And I am so ready to get on my diet and shift some weight! I never got in 'the zone' after my second son and finally I am and ready to go!

My beautiful boys are so cute with my bump, hugging and kissing it which I must admit I will miss as it is just soooo sweet!

Hopefully my next post will be an introduction to our new addition!!

Start of homemade Christmas presents!

I have been soooo consumed with preparing for baby and trying to make sure I rest etc I haven't done any of the posts I had planned!

However this is a start to my homemade Christmas presents! Sweets in a jar! I have saved any jars I used and have washed and decorated them to make them into something festive!

First I took labels off my jars and washed and dried them inside out. As pictured above!

I then measured the space I wanted my festive paper to cover and cut it accordingly. I stuck it to the jar with double sided tape (a favourite of mine!)

I made a label for my jar (i'm unsure whether to put names or a festive greeting on them-any thoughts?)
And used some left over wrapping paper and an elastic band to make a lid. 

I will fill them with sweet treats closer to Christmas to keep them fresh :-)

I am making a few more at the moment so I shall share another photo soon of them all together!!
