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 http://www.alannahhill.com.au/

… and this ‘apparently’ is the No. 1 portrait photographer in the universe lol INSPRIATIONAL!!! His name is Platon I believe… http://platonphoto.com/portraits/movies/index.html

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!

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…
