March Month

My March Month Happenings on the blog:

In my personal life March was full of to-do's, not that I mentioned them much on the blog, they were made possible because of my generous husband who supports what I do. I spent March being thankful for him and working my little hiney off because he makes it possible to do so.

So what have I been doing? There was the Plunket Appeal week - we raised $1000 for my local, Woolston Plunket. Some of you helped me doing that by donating $10 and going in the draw to win one of my personalised birth prints. Because of your interest in them I have also started selling them on my Felt page.

The Sisterhood also sent out two LOVE BOMBs and raised enough money to send Deb to Melbourne to bless others.  We raised that money in FOUR HOURS. It blew my mind. Money is still coming in, hopefully we will have enough to give some Australian coin to Cam towards a new bike to celebrate her new lungs! Amazing. You all amaze me.

I have also been rather crafty, lots of long projects have come to an end so it looks like I have been much more productive in this department than what I have been, really its just the end of a lot of procrastination! I put some crochet wipes up for sale, finished Millas Granny Circle Blanket (phew!) and made Milla a peplum bubble dress with the help of a free online pattern.

I also wrote about finding a good midwife, especially important if you've never had one before or dont seem to be connecting with the one you do have. Have a read of the post and forward it onto any of your preggo friends.

Speaking of pregnancy, I did a 25 week pregnancy update, I'm quickly approaching the 30 week mark now! It is flying by! And finally completed Millas 18 month update.

What I haven't been blogging about is my involvement with Around The Table - we're working really hard to create a great weekend for you to come to (in less than 2 weeks!!) so you can meet other bloggers! I've been doing all the sponsorship for the event (think goody-ful goodie bags and tonnes of spot prizes) and designing the brochure. Its proving to be very time consuming and I'm spending a lot of time behind my lap top these days. Mr Moo will probably be relieved when its all over, but it will be worth it!

I hope to write more about Around The Table as it approaches, I have some warnings for you (i'm not a natural hugger!) for when we meet, heehee ;)

I didn't get around to doing any of the My Journey series but I hope to do more of this when things settle down a bit after the conference!

I love doing this monthly round up, it feels so good to put an end to the month and reflect on what has been. I was starting to feel a little overwhelmed with my to-dos feeling like I wasn't getting anywhere but I can see now that I have had a very full month indeed!


 In March I have had some beautiful sponsors on my blog that I am so proud to represent!  

Scamps, an online ecoproduct store for mums, babies and kids have some great products that are worth checking out! 

I love their philosophy and it suits me perfectly, you can buy anything from reusable nappies and eco baby skin products to wraps and carriers or lunchboxes

All About Heidi sent me some shiny gold leather shoes for Milla and gave some away to my lucky readers! There was such a great response to this give away and I was so proud to represent a great business with beautiful products. The winner of the giveaway was Dawnie Burgess as chosen by rafflecopter. 

Belly Beyond are a great online maternity store in New Zealand, they send me some autumn appropriate clothes to review and I wrote about them in my 25 week pregnancy update. I'm continuing to wear the clothes and continuing to be impressed. 

Craft Love Festival! If you're coming to Around The Table, hopefully you are joining us at the festival on Friday 12th night! Hazel and Holly from our ATT are running it and its going to be a fab night, so many great local artists and creators! 

If you're in chch right now, Craft Love Festival are running a guerilla marketing campaign, you can read my post on it and be in to win a $50 market voucher!
