...but I love gift wrapping. Shocking right?
Because I'm the type of person who has more fabric, paper and ribbons than any person really should have.
And doilies. Ridiculous amounts of doilies.
So I use them to make presents pretty. And it makes me smile.
And usually, it makes the recipient of the gift smile too.
This package is for my niece, Grace.
Let's face it, it's more what's inside this package that will make her smile.
This weekend. Heaven. There was sunshine. There was good coffee. There was a kid-free mini road-trip with the Mister. There was splashing in the sea with the little Miss. There was carrot cake. There was time spent with a bestie who lives far, far away. There was my sister. There were lots of toddler sized giggles. The cutest giggles in the world.
There were plans made...the type of plans that give you butterflies.

I try very hard to be on the anti-valentine's bandwagon. I really do. I know it's consumerist. I know it's commercialised. I know it's vomit-worthy.
The problem is...I love an excuse to celebrate. An excuse to be all geeky romantic and spend time with the mister. So this V-Day I will be packing a picnic complete with love notes and letting myself be totally uncool and enjoy a little commercial romance.
Here are some things that would make your fave man happy on Valentine's Day.
1. A boomcase http://blog.theboomcase.com/shop/
2. Able & Game Card http://www.etsy.com/listing/61145281/lover-card-youre-currently-number-one?ga_search_query=number%2Bone&ga_search_type=user_shop_ttt_id_5438341

It's true. They should. So I made it happen.
Check it out here:
I have published two blog posts in the last year? Really??
Wow. I really hadn't realised it had been so long since I had blogged regularly. And I miss it.
Apart from my lack of blogging, the past year has been much the same. Sewing, running my little (mostly) online business and watching The Little Miss growing up. Fast. So fast.
Now that our baby is nearly two (!), I have had some time to breathe. Some time to reflect. Time to realise that ReJenerate has run away in a direction I never anticipated. And I am running behind, clinging desperately to the leash, franticly trying to keep up but loving every minute.
I have so many ideas, so much inspiration. So many things I want to do with my label. So many things I must do.
So over the next few months I will be completely re-launching ReJenerate. New name, new website, new focus and new products. Exciting!
Please check back in and keep up to date with the goings on. Let me know what you think.
I may have been away a while...but I missed you.
