Just another weekend in Australia

Summer is slowly slipping away, so we try to spend every sunny weekend outside, while the good weather lasts.
We woke up to a beautiful Sunday morning and the weather was perfect for a pic-nic, so we packed some food, joined a couple of friends and headed north to Morisset Park, 100km from Sydney. It had been a while since we'd seen kangaroos and this park is known to be the best spot to catch them in the wild.

It wasn't hard to tell we were in the right place, as we approached the park and we could spot kangaroos casually sleeping on the side of the road. Some curious ones would stick their ears up at the sound of the car, checking us out.
There were so many of them, just hanging around in large groups, and lots of mothers with babies in their pouches.

We found a quiet pic-nic area, away from curious wallabies, and had a nice relaxing lunch, before venturing through the park to meet the locals.

They are so used to human visits that they allow us to come really close and we can interact with them safely.

Even a young mother with a little joey in her pouch came to us and let us pat her.

Note the joey's legs sticking out of her pouch on the left

The couple of seconds when we actually saw the baby's head

We spent a good few of hours in the park, taking photos, enjoying the surroundings and just appreciating these amazing animals.
I can't think of a better way to relax and get ready for another week!

Last minute Valentine's Day ideas

If you're like me, you've probably just realised that Valentine's Day is already here. I keep telling myself that I need to get organised and stay ahead of the Holidays, but this always happens. Where did all those January weeks go?

Anyway, if you're looking for a last minute idea for your kid's class gifts, you came to the right place!

Our Cookies & Milk Valentine's Day collection has been a success this year and the labels are really easy to put together. They also come with an editable text field for you to type your child's name in before printing. Simply print the labels, fill a small bag with cookies, milk bottle gummies, or chocolate hearts and you're good to go. Find them in the shop here.

Isn't this the cutest thing?

If you're really late and don't have any goodies for the bags, don't worry! The next option will save you!
These cards have editable text fields that you can use to type your child's name in, leave blank, or even put a different message on each card. They fit 8 to an A4 page, which makes them the perfect size for little hands and a less of a hassle for mum, as you won't have to spend too much paper and ink.
Simply type the names in, print a few pages and cut the cards.

Done! Another simple solution for last minute Valentines.
Happy Love Day!

Etsy finds - The Dirty Bandits

I love discovering new shops on Etsy and this week I found the Dirty bandits and their "Love for Sale" collection, with a variety of fun typographic cards and prints for adults.

These slightly naughty and silly notes would make a great and original Valentine's Day card!

And for singles, one of these gold foiled stamped prints would be a fun and precious gift.
