Christmas has arrived for 2011 and it is such an exciting time for us here in the Butchart household. We have not been fortunate enough to have a gorgeous Killicrankie Farm tree but we are fortunate in so many other ways.
We are fortunate to have each other, to have found a community here in Longford that have become our friends. I am fortunate to have the love of a wonderful man, and to have my four gorgeous girls and more fortunate to experience motherhood a 2nd time around when I didn't think I would and now have the beautiful and entertaining Mathilde.
I am also so very fortunate to have got in touch with my creatice side and now produce beautiful clothing and other wares using the two methods I love, op-shopping and finding wonderful vintage fabrics and recycling. I am so fortunate to have the support of the Longford community and council for the Longford Makers' Market to grow and succeed as it is. And I would not be able to do any of this without my amazingly supportive and encouraging husband, who builds my confidence up every day and makes me realise how lucky I am.
Have a very merry christmas, enjoy being with the ones you love and enjoy the holidays, for those fortunate enough to have them.
