Killicrankie Farms christmas tree.
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.
