Slowly getting back into the swing of things!

I always find it difficult to get back into routine after a holiday. Washing piled up everywhere and suitcases still half unpacked and we have already been at home for a week! We have had my in-laws staying with us for almost a week, they are moving here from Port Elizabeth and I have been house hunting with my mom-in-law. Fortunately on day 2 we found the perfect place. They should be here permanently in a month or so.
I have also been trying to get my new shop ready for opening day 15th, and manged to do 2 LO's and a freebie!

KimB has a gorgeous sparkly New years Kit in her shop called Time Anew.My LO- my son Wesley and his girlfriend Alexia
Kim has her new January Commercial use Grab Bag out, wonderful as usual!It is only $8 for 6 brand new products!My hint as to what you will find in it! I used the colours in Kim's January Colour Challenge at DSO
This is my DD Cherye, who turned 15 on 3 January
Here is the freebie I did for Kim's Colour Challenge - using some of her CU grab bag goodies:Download here

A belated HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone!! Here are a few photos of our small New year's party we had, just our family and a few of the kid's friends. I must admit I just made 12am, one minute past and I was in bed haha! We decided to go Island style and party along with our friends back home who were also doing an Island style theme, at midnight we sms'ed each other photos!
Our hectic punch

My son Tristan, the clown!Mark -haha
Group Photo!
A few glasses of punch later!
And then I forgot I had a camera!!
A few pics of my niece Nicole and me taken a few nights before,after I was force fed tequila!!

Thats all for now!!! Way past my bed time!! Have a great weekend!
