My boys think I'm OBSESSED!!! lol

We were just about to have some lunch after visiting a friend when Kirby called around to head off to a clearing sale. Well, we postponed lunch & toodled off with her!! I had a look around & nothing had grabbed my fancy but then I saw this!! I was lucky enough to have only one other person bidding & I WON!!! Yeah.
I thought that I might decorate it with ribbons, beads & things.
What do you guys think?????
I thought it was a bargain & just had to have it!!
Finally we did get home for lunch, just a little late, hee hee! But it was worth it I reckon.
luv me xxooxx

The Happy Couple!!

What a lovely couple!! NICE.


Well what a night!! Not only did Emma turn 21 but Jamie asked the BIG question!! He proposed down on one knee & she said YES!!!! WOW - how exciting!!! Jamie, Emma & Grandma together. She was thrilled for them!
The IN LAWS to be together.

The ring. Jamie went shopping all by himself & picked the ring for emma without any help. And yes he got it right!!! Emma loves it!!

Emma's 21st

These are pics of our family dressed to kill for Emma's 21st birthday. Emma is my eldest boy's girlfriendand she turns 21 today & we partied last night. The theme of the party was to come dressed in "OP SHOP" clothes to the value of no more than $15.00. Some dressed for style, some dressed for impact and some just dressed in a dress!!! It was a great night & we all enjoyed good friends & family. The party lasted well into the night with some fantastic dance moves being displayed by the older components of family. I'm not sure who may have jad the best time - young or older!! - I think both!!!! Happy 21st Emma & all the best for your future.
This is my youngest son - Simon. He decided that the mens section of Vinnies was too BORING & wanted something with IMPACT!! Yeah I think he got it right!!! The bravest thing was that it was quite a chilly night & he didn't wear anything under the dress except for his undiess!!! Don't you love the work boots??? He reminds me of Auntie Jack!!??!! Funny how I didn't really need to have a girl 'cos he looks good in a dress??!! ha ha
Matt & mum Helen dressed to impress. These are friends of ours. Helen swears that these WILL be going back to Vinnies striaght after the party!! Matt just couldn't bend over for the night & for some reason his voice was a little 'higher' than normal??

Me. I had to pop my leggings underneath as it was a little cool.
Hats were the thing of the night.

Here's our Emma. She looked gorgeous in her Op shop dress, just like a princess. She had a great night.

Jamie with his hawaiian shirt, grandpa pants & suspenders!!! Don't you love the pink fluffy stubby holder??? hee hee

Joe Bell, dressed to kill!! That hat stayed on all night considering it didn't really fit that well. Don't you love the colour co-ordination???? NOT.

Party night!!

Hello possums!!
What an interesting couple of weeks it has been for me lately.
I have had lots of different things going on in my life. Here's a snippet of what's been happening -
We had our family fair for the school last night. It is held every second year & is a major fundraiser. It was a pleasent enough night for it although it did get a little chilly later on.
It was a buzz with loads of people and good money was raised for the school.
This morning I helped Christina with her garage sale. WOW - heaps successful!!! You rock girl. We had a few downpours of rain which kept things interesting!!! - NOT!!! hee hee Anyway, lots of people came along & got great bargains!!! Well done Christina!!!
I played basketball last Wednesday night and was having so much fun then, BANG - i did a calf muscle. OUCH!! Now I think that Susy has a couple of photos so I'll just be getting the negatives off her before anyone sees them!!! hee hee It's certainly feeling better now so that's good.
Tonight I have Emma's 21st birthday party. We had to go OP shopping & spend no more than $15.00 for our outfit. Well I can see that there will be some interesting combinations on show tonight!! I'll post some pics when I have them. I'm sure we'll have loads of fun.
Well that's about it from me for now so please be kind to one another & enjoy your night!!
luv me xxooxx

Tan looks likes she's in really deep thought here. It was fabulous that she could join in with Christina's final class.

Tonight we went to Deb's 50th birthday party. It was held at the Kincraig Beer Garden. There was a great bunch of us & we all dressed up as 'Welcome to my Nightmare'. We had a whole lot of fun and had worms in shots of vodka & jelly, body parts lollies, spiders & rats and a whole heap of cobwebs too. there were rattly old bones and lots of skeletons around too. It was a great night to catch up with everyone and party on and let the hair down a bit.
We got quite a few stares when we ventured out to the front bar to do some more boogeying!! Joe was the hit of the night with his black fingernails & blue hair!!!!!
It's fun to dress up at times and look silly!!!
We had fun so that's the main thing.
luv me xxooxx

One day I'll get to load my photos in the right order not BACK TO FRONT!!!!!lol
What a wonderful day yesterday was for me! It started with going to Joe's mums for her garage sale. We popped some stuff in of our own so it was good to sell off some unwanted items!! Then I called into the shop (Scrap n Patch) to say hi. Coco was there along with Tan & we chatted & laughed (of course) & somehow we ended up decideing to go out for chinese!!! Don't ya just LOVE spur of the moment things!!! It certainly keeps life interesting. So then I had to go home & prepare for my Shariah party. This went well & was a very pleasant arvo. Then came the time to GLAM ON UP GIRL - for my hot date!! hee hee
I think I shocked EVERYONE. I wore a dress. Yes you read it right - a DRESS!!!!!!!! It was sooooooooooooo cool & I popped on my little bling shoes and added some more bling to me & there you have it - ready to PARRRRRRTAYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Coco looked awesome! We were two hot chickies!!! lol (well we thought soooo!!). We had a fabulous meal at the Chinese & were served by our beautiful Tan & girls. We loved your little black apron Tan. Then we ventured down to the Kincraig for a few more drinks. We danced a little & wandered home about 1.30 am to leave Tan dancing the night away with Vanessa.
You know sometimes we just don't do these little things together often enough 'cos it was so nice to hang out & talk & LAUGH!!!! Thank you for a great night!!!
This is a great shot of Christina & Emma. Emma is my eldest boy's (Jamie) girlfriend. We caught up with them last night at the pub. It was nice that they stayed & had a chat for a bit.

Boy this is serious!!!! Sorry it's a bit blurry but I had to include it to show that we were really into it!!! Don't know what but it must have been good!!!lol
This is Jamie & friend - NICKO!!!! They joined us for a little spot of entertainment.

SORRY MY DARLIN' !!!!!! You said if I posted it I would be DEAD - so I just popped in a little bit. Hee hee, ain't I just toooooooooooooooooo BAD!!!!!!!

Well here we are just chillin' out at the Chinese Resturant, enjoying & savouring a 'Banquet for Two'. And it was just yummy YUMMY!!! We had fab service- thanx Tan & girls and then towards the end of the evening there - beautiful Davey came out for a chat!! Laugh, he's so funny!! Davey & I actually got introduced to one another as no-one realised that that hadn't been done before. So thank you Davey for the warm welcome!!! I even tried chop sticks!!!

(Some may say that's a good thing - hmmm??)
I went to work today for the first time this week & got through the day alright. My voice on the other hand was a little worse for ware still. The kids thought it was funny when I tried to say something & not much came out!!
Never mind - I'm on the improve & feeling much, much better!!!
Thank you to everyone for their well wishes.
luv me xxooxx

Spoilt rotten am I!!!!

I couldn't wait to get into my parcel today to find all these wonderful goodies!! So I thought that I would share with you guys. Velour ric rak is going to look lovely on some cards or even a layout.

More velour ribbon. I thought this was very cute with the wavy pattern done the middle.

These are beautiful 3D felt embellishments. I can't wait to get time to use them!!

More metal - there's handles & keys & words!!!!

I loved this little 'TAG' booklet. It has some beautiful papers and some journalling tags too.

Oooooooo GOODIES!!

These are some nice goodies that i got in a parcel today!! Above are some GLITTER brads. I thought that they may look good on christmas cards!?? (If I ever get around to making some that is!!!)
Now what could I do with these little beauties????? Hmmmmmmmm, aren't they nice!!

These have soothed my 'butterfly' fettish at the moment!! And the keys, yum. Don't ya just love the little tin they came in.

Tan got me inspired when we stitched on a layout page the other week at class. I found these templates for lots of different stitches & am looking forward to using them on some of my stuff.

OMG what can I say ( Yes - you can borrow these anytime, Christina!!!) What am I going to do with these little babies. They certainly didn't look this good in the picture I looked at!! keep posted for art work produced using all my bag of goodies!!!
luv me xxooxx

Do I know what I'm doing????????

Helllllooooooooooo y'all!
Well here I go again - another artwork piece!
What do you think????
I'm so sure I don't know what I'm doin'.
Anyway giving it a go & seeing what happens.
I'm liking the fact that I want to have a go but then I'm scared that no-one will really like it.
Sometimes I'm not sure if others are just saying what they think you want to hear???!!
I don't know!
So it's a long canvas and the pics I've taken probably aren't real goodbut you'll get the idea. The last photo is actually the top and the fourth pic is the bottom. The others are shots of it close up.
Anyhoo - there it is for all to see.
ENJOY!! (I hope) . I'm thinking that I may pop it in the shop to sell????
luv me xxooxx
