Here’s a page for the Nook & Pantry Comp!

You had to use 2 photos…


Recycled lettering…


and something from the kitchen…


I made flowers from baking paper/foil/cupcake papers. I love this page! 12×12 when I’ve been 8.5x11ing for a while. I am no Nic Howard on the 12×12 but Im happy with it just the same.

Cheers & thanks for looking,

I made another order through last week. Such super quick service and absolutely the latest and greatest goodies. The new Making Memories papers and embellisments are seriously so yummy. Anyway, because I have signed up to their newsletter, I found this competition and put my name down to join in the fun!

Just the kick I need to get scrapping! I’m into week 2 of my holidays and I have another to do list. Maybe I should post it here and tick off the projects when I’ve finished them?

anyway gotta go…

Let’s Get Shabby – Challenge Three

6 09 2009

This is my entry for the “Let’s Get Shabby” blog and all about COLOUR…. Except it’s ONLY to be dominant in WHITE or/ and CREAM, with a HINT of ONE other colour of your choice.

That was the brief… and here is my take;


This is a close up of the flowery bit… you get the idea.


The photo is of Claire pulling a ‘so excited she could burst’ face.

I went shopping yesterday with the ladies, we had so much fun especially in Pumpkin Patch. Saw Mandy and her Mum in Shop and Crop, hi girls! Man there are some gorgeous papers out at the moment… didn’t spend too much which surprised me.

I’m at war once again with the bindies in my lawn, but other than that my garden is making me so happy at the moment. I will take some pics of it. Just signed another 12 month lease here. Rent went up by $15 a week but at least I don’t have to move and the landlord is happy with us. Hope to get a bit more scrapping done today… Happy Father’s Day (yeah sure) they are a bit thin on the ground around here… the ladies and I have had a day so far of lots of loving cuddles and time together, they don’t seem to be too worried about the situation… they come out with some funny stuff to explain to people where their Dad is… I try never to be negative… just say that he is at his house and will come see them one day. They are too young to face facts yet and that seems to be okay for now as the next shiny thing comes along and they get distracted.

Cheers everyone, try to get out and enjoy this beautiful weather! Take care and thanks for the visit…

This is going to be fun!

Happy Long Weekend!

7 06 2009

and here I am at home on a Sunday…. not working you say?

Indeed not working my pretties …

because I have recently been (nervously) through the Local Government interview process (again) and accepted a Customer Service position at Singleton Council… yipp yipp yeehar… no more working weekends or public holidays!

The ladies are astonished that Mumma is being so tough this weekend though… officially the rubbish that they used to get away with because I was only with them every second weekend (and exhausted and unable to put up a fight… I always gave in… while I worked they stayed with Mum) it can now STOP!!! I am being quite tough but if I’m going to survive with my sanity in tact, the rules are now enforceable… they don’t try half of the cheekyness with Mum as they do here with me. I think it’s that I’m on my own too. No back up of another adult. So as of now I’m toughening up on discipline and acceptable behaviour. Mind you it’s 10.30 pm and the little toads were just jumping up and down on my bed. They aren’t completely under control yet obviously… I wanted to sleep in this morning… 8 am was all I got.

Anyway that means more time to berl-loggy blog!

I beg your pardon? You don’t believe me? We shall see… shall we?

Bestest ever news! I am officially going to Kim Archer’s amazing retreat in November… that cannot come quick enough for me and I will no doubt be blabbering more about it as it gets closer. I went to the Skrapkatz weekend retreat last month and this year made myself a new handbag and managed to finish about 7 layouts … A new record ’cause normally I take a car load of stuff and all I do is gasbag and eat …

speaking of cars… I have a new (for me) car. I will take photos of it tomorrow. I have never loved a car like this… I did love my celica from my young and free days but my new wagon is the most perfect for us! I even bought personalised number plates. Because Jennifer Lopez is J-Lo I am L-Mo… like ELMO – gettit ??? Yeah not many do understand it lol.

Some of the retreat pages;


and I HAD every intention of entering the Kaisercraft Dt call… so I started this… of course the deadline came and went before I finished the album… so here it is finally done. The best news is that (great mate and unofficial sister) Rona was awarded a position on the Kaisercraft DT… I have been telling her for ages that she would be a shoe-in for DT’s and mags… now she believes me… I think … I do love Kaisercraft’s mini albums and have so much of their mdf in my stash… Did you know there are flamingos on their new paper? … for what it’s worth I reckon flamingoes will be the new deer in scrapping lol


So I’m about to put a scrapping dvd on and go glue my fingers together lol

Say hi if you are still reading,

Hi to Chris Millar and Rach who I’m still getting around to replying to …

much love

So this is my fabulous new bag… I saw it and fell a little bit in love. It’s really a nappy bag, however it holds all the great stuff I carry around. I am on holidays for 3 weeks now and so expect some new bags popping up here on the blog. I have patterns in the cupboard screaming to be cut and made into fabulous handbags… material too for that matter lol.


and the reason for this post… my new punches from Jill @ A Million Little Things. I love the new Martha Stewart border punches. So sweet!



… and here’s what the fabulous little gems can do…



I’m off to punch something lol
