Michael with his very own personalized cushion

Hi Everyone,

We recently collaborated with an amazing family owned company called : https://artisangiftco.com.au/ They sell amazing keepsake gifts and prints. My family and I, quickly fell in love with their products. What I love is that they put so much love, care and attention into their products and it truly shows how passionate they are about what they create for us. They are creating and designing products that we will love and cherish forever.

About arts and gift co

It was established in 2018 with the idea of creating hand made keepsake gifts that will last a lifetime. Starting off with hand made prints.They have grown their range and added decor, toys and gifts but, They have and continue to stay true to what we’re there all about: hand made and high quality. They are not wrong their either because their products are incredible!

The unique and beautifully hand made gifts you buy from The Artisan Gift Co will be so special and will be something you and your family will cherish for many years to come and nothing is more special then a beautifully handmade keepsake you can share with your loved ones.

My family and I received 2 wonderful products from Arts and gift co

My little Mikey with his personalized storybook cushion
  1. Was the ever so beautiful Personalized story book range cushion – Bicycle design : https://artisangiftco.com.au/collections/kids-decor/products/storybook-cushion-customised-bicycle .

This is a fully personalized cushion. The cushion also features a small paragraph on the back which really cute and gives it that story feel. They retail at $85.00 and afterpay is also available. The quality and design of this product is absolutely impeccable and I know that my son Michael will cherish this for many years to come.

2. The next thing was the family name print keepsake. https://artisangiftco.com.au/collections/family-keepsake/products/family-surname-keepsake-print

Family surname ke e psaje print with rose gold foil

I wanted to have something special and meaningful that I could proudly place in my hous and this was the perfect idea. This is the perfect definition to what a family is. This is what we have written on our print:

  1. a group of people related by blood or united through friendship and love.
  2. . the result of two people falling in love.
  3. the ones you live for, laugh with, support, forgive and love unconditionally with all your heart. You can also choose what color foil you want for the the big capital letter of your surname on the top of the print. We went with rose gold as it’s my favorite color. We absolutely love our keepsake print. It’s very special and I already have it up in my living room with all of our other family photos. You can also have other themes for your keepsake print just contact someone in their friendly team who will happily assist you.

We are so thrilled with our personalized products and have never had anything like this before, so a very big thank you to Arts and gift-co for gifting my family and I these beautiful keepsakes. At the moment they have 10 percent of site-wide all you need to do is use the code : 10SITEWIDE. They also have afterpay available.

SMILE because you are BEAUTIFUL
SMILE because you are AMAZING
SMILE because you are WORTHY
SMILE because you are UNIQUE
SMILE because you are BLESSED
SMILE because you are LOVED
SMILE because you can!
SMILE because tomorrow is a new day!
SMILE because life’s to short not too!

I SMILE not because life is perfect because it isn’t, It just means I appreciate everything God has given me and for that I am internally grateful.
.
I SMILE every day because I am very blessed to have my family, my faith and my friends and so so much more..
When I’m feeling a bit down I think of all the positives in my life and eventually, it outweighs all the negatives. Smiling is so important. Smiling is also good for your mind, body and soul.

Staying hydrated and supporting mental health

Staying hydrated and supporting mental health



Hi everyone,

Recently I have been working really hard getting back into my fitness regime. I have been going on early morning runs and I am back to eating keto-friendly foods. One of my biggest downfalls, when I’m trying to keep fit, is not drinking enough water! I’m terrible at remembering! Recently I was scrolling through Instagram and had stumbled across @realactivemovenent They sell big beautiful and unique water bottles and accessories. I purchased a purple 1.4L bottle and I have filled it up twice a day every day for the last 7 days and I am very proud of myself for remembering! It’s big enough and I don’t think I will forget to drink water anytime soon! πŸ˜‰
Did you know that 10% of the proceeds from every sale is donated to their incredible mental health charity partners. How awesome is that!


I haven’t spoken about this topic much but I too have struggled with my mental health over the years due to different life challenges being thrown my way. But it needs to be spoken about alot more and I will do all I can to help with this. I am very happy to support such a great movement. It’s important to always support each other and be kind always. You can never truly know what a person is going through in their life. Your kindness and support will go such a long way.

Who are we to judge?!

Who are we to judge?!

Hey everyone,

For the last 4 weeks, I have noticed a homeless man sitting outside Aldi in my local town and I admit for the first few weeks I just smiled at him and didn’t do anything to help him! And if I’m completely honest then I was a little nervous approaching him because I didn’t want to place myself in an unsafe situation. Looking back though I wished I had helped him sooner.

On Saturday afternoon I had noticed he had a limp and I could feel the sadness that filled his eyes, I knew at that moment that I wanted to help him in any way I could. Earlier that day I had been on a girly shopping day with my mother in law and I had a bit of money left over and so I walked up to him and handed him $50! Now I know what you are all thinking! You think it’s a bad idea to give homeless people money because you think they will spend it on booze etc.. But at the end of the day who are we to judge? We don’t actually know what they will spend it on or why they are in this situation, or what they’ve done or haven’t done! and quite frankly it’s none of our business! I know there is some people who claim to be homeless and aren’t being genuine about it, but I felt in my heart and soul that he was different. I handed him the money and he lifted his head and was instantly filled with joy. He cried and said thank you and shook my hand, I told him to go get some food and he said he would and with that, he got up and went into Aldi.

I went to Aldi again on Wednesday and he was there again. I reminded him who I was and I asked how he was. He told me he was able to get a good feed on Saturday. I told him I had no money to give him but I would go and buy him some lunch. I bought him a big bottle of water, a croissant, a pack of flavoured crackers and a pack of museli bars. When I headed back outside with my shopping he was gone. I ended up

leaving his lunch with the sales stall that was outside because he usually comes back.

I really wished I could do more for him but I did what I could.
I’ve seen many people look at this man with disgust and that makes me very sad 😒

If anyone is in Queanbeyan and can offer this man , food drink, blankets or a safe place to to stay then let me know.😒

Maths made easy with Maths Online

Maths made easy with Maths Online

Georgina aged 11 is watching a Math tutorial

Hey everyone,

As most of you know by now we are large homeschooling family living in regional  New South Wales and we have been schooling now at home for almost 5 years and it’s been wonderful.  Although homeschooling has mostly been a breeze for my children and I,  there, of course have been some struggles along the way especially when it comes to maths. Maths is not their favourite subject and if i’m honest it’s not mine either, however,  it’s important that we work hard at mathematics because we will be using  these skills for the rest of our lives! The children often find their workbooks boring and lose interest very quickly! I decided it was time to try a different method of learning.

Maths onlineIn collaboration with Maths Online

In the last few days we have starting using a 12 month family membership with maths online and although it’s only early days my children are really excited to use it! I have never seen them so excited about maths before so I’m definitely a very happy mum right now! Over the next 12 months I will be updating you on their ongoing progress with the program We are so excited! Maths has just been become a fun subject in our household thanks to maths online!

How it works

Each of the 1,400+ Maths Online tutorials last around 4-9 minutes and present the concepts of the maths lesson step-by-step. Using synchronised audio and animation which harnesses both audio and visual learning styles simultaneously. Maths Online lessons can be studied at home or at school and all devices. Obviously no one can force a young person to study maths, but what we have done here is to provide materials that are interesting and stimulating in themselves, and which will encourage the student, once started, to continue studying.

What we love about it

What I love about the programs far is the video tutorials that you can listen to  before each lesson. the tutorial explains the lesson very well and even shows you few examples to help you. I also love that I am able to set tasks and keep a track of my children’s progress.

Home school Pricing :

https://www.mathsonline.com.au/purchase/homeschool   — (We do ask that once you have purchased your homeschooling membership that you provide a scanned copy of your certificate or registration of approval to home school within 4 weeks of purchase)

I’m looking forward to sharing more with you all over the next coming months. Stay tuned because tomorrow I will announcing a huge math online giveaway over on my Instagram.

Don’t ever let anyone bring you down

Don’t ever let anyone bring you down

TRIBE


Hey everyone,

I want to have a chat about the highs and lows of social media.

I started my blog just 1 year ago and I have been very fortunate with it.I have had an amazing year and have had some amazing opportunities come my way. I have worked with some amazing brands/companies and we have worked on some amazing media stories. I have some amazing supportive followers who say such kind things to me every day. I am truly grateful for every single one of you.There have definitely been more highs than lows, however, I have met some very unkind people along the way who don’t like to see you succeed. These people have also said; “You are not good enough” or that ” you don’t work hard enough” or that “You have missed the boat” I say; “well you try being a mum of 9 who lives rural and home schools her children full-time. I do what I can with my blog and it gives me so much Joy to write and put content out there for everyone to read. I work very hard at everything I do. I put my heart and soul into everything I write. I am learning new things every day and will continue to build on my craft. I let most things go over my head but I have my bad days. I am only human after all. Being a mother is a tough gig no matter how many kids you have!I want to continue to inspire people and share my life experiences and even if it only helps one person then I’m happy. I’m not a perfect writer but I write because I’m passionate about it.Instagram is an amazing outlet and can be a very supportive place, it’s also a great place to connect with other mum’s. I will always be real, raw and honest with you. It’s important to never let anyone bring you down! You do you! And I will do me! We are all on a journey. Everything I do is for my family and family and faith will always come first above all else. Always be your authentic self and don;t ever let anyone bully you or tell you to be a certain way. Its none of their business how you lead your life.

Be careful not to get sucked into the dark side of social media. There is so much ‘fakeness’ on social media and it’s important not to believe everything that you see or read.

Be kind always because you don’t know what the other person could be going through Support each other always The negative nancie’s wont ever stop me from doing what I love!I am here for the long haul.

Thanks for your ongoing support
Love always Claire X.
