1st of the month... HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Wow… can you believe it’s 2011!? It seems like just yesterday that we were bracing ourselves for the big 2000. I for one am very excited about the beginning of a new decade. I’ve got a list of resolutions as long as Santa’s Naughty List {and I hear it’s verrrry long…}. PLUS, to kick off the year with a bang, we’ve got a big fun giveaway for you!

Happy New Year from The Party Puppy!

    For me it’s to be more creative. I’ve just been given a sewing machine and I can’t wait to create. No more buying pants for the boys, I’m going to make some funky pants and overalls.

    Also to do more big projects with the boys – we only made a couple last year. We’re starting our first project next week, I’ve just got to buy the materials. We’re making a giant paper mache teepee painted rainbow colours (my 4 yr olds favourite) and waterproof it so it can stay outside 🙂

  • Being a WAHM, I want to work smarter & not harder this year and I aim to be a better & more efficient juggler of all things at once!
