I have been spending today catching up with blogs (Dodo didn’t have any local internet coverage for the past week – poo and double poo!) I did however while away two days scrap shopping in Sydney, Friday with Mum at the Paper Crafts Festival (interesting but not really worth going – I bought the usual new stuff at the usual stores Katja Schneider’s Memories 2 Remember is always a must… got some new ribbons and new paper there – so cute!) spending the day with Mum was really good and Gabu lent us his ‘Garmin’ so we saved heaps of time getting to Canterbury racecourse – definately getting a GPS for my car, they’re brilliant! Then Saturday went back to Penrith with Rona for shopping at Scraploot, Lincraft and last but never least Fred The Needle – seriously the best scrap/fabric/BTP store in Australia Mum’s comment was that Fred’s is like a Paper Crafts Fesitval on it’s own lol (She’s right and Simone is such a beautiful, friendly, helpful chick, all of her staff are brilliant and make you feel like a really valued customer and I’m always so sad to leave – wish I lived closer – I always get the most amazing stuff there!)
Anyway now I’m sitting here once again at the computer while dinner cooks… a hearty Winter barley soup (made with rice instead – but rice soup sounds disgusting lol – this is officially cold scrapping weather and as soon as the ladies are in bed I am making stuff) The footy is on and I don’t care who wins as long as it isn’t Parramatta lol.

If you have time, check out my favourite inspriation website! Allanah Hill

… and this ‘apparently’ is the No. 1 portrait photographer in the universe lol INSPRIATIONAL!!! His name is Platon I believe…

Have a great Sunday night… you know what the grand final of footy means don’t you??? *sigh* another overload season of damn cricket 😦 ‘Carn the Storm!

Hello. Hi there…

I sit here at home beside my favourite 5 year old. Favourite, along with the other favourite of course!

It’s the ladies 5th birthday today and unfortunately Miss Charlotte is really sick 😦 I had to pick her up from kindy this morning and she missed out on a party with her school friends. Claire has made the most of it. Poor baby Chuck can’t keep her antibiotics down not even Panadol… here’s hoping she gets better real quick! I will be spending the next few days nursing my youngest (youngest by 3 minutes lol)

I have a little ‘happy place’ to share from the 2Crafty blog. I made this mask for a charity ball last year. I took a $2 shop black mask and just kept adding to it…. long feathers, Heidi Swapp velvet flowers, bling and heaps and heaps of ‘old gold’ glitter! Anyway Anthea has some amazing layouts and features the 2Crafty chip products regularly on the blog… go check it out here… Thank you for the opportunity Miss Vanessa! All the 2Crafty chippies… love love love them! Next on the shopping list are the new chandeliers… yum scrum!


Be back soon with NEWS!!!!
