Well hello all you beautiful people out there in blog land!!
As most of you are probably aware, I have two spare rooms now. Both the boys have moved out over the past couple of weeks or so. Therefore I am left with two empty rooms - well not really empty but you know what I mean!!
So I decided to keep one as a 'spare bedroom' and the other I would use as a sc rap room. Aren't I lucky!!! Yes indeed. So I have slowly moved my stash over the last few nights and sorting a bit as I go.
This is a view of my new room from the door. This is looking at my table from the other side of the room.
I'm loving my bookshelves that I have moved into this room. I get to display some of my 'pretties' and show off some of my fav equipment!!

This is the one on the other side of the window. Hello Coco!!

This is the built in wardrobe in the room that I have been able to store all my boxes of goodies in. PLenty of room to move and to store MORE!! hee hee

Thank you for joing me in my travels of moving rooms.
Bye for now and take care!!
luv me xxooxx

First House.

This is Jamie & Emma's new home. It's on Sandstone Ave. They received the keys on Friday and slept their first night there. Today we have been moving ALL their stuff from both parents places. This is the front of their house. This is the back of their house. It needs a little tlc but they are sure happy to give it their own touch.

This is a most glorious gum tree that lives in the corner of their front yard.

Jamie & Emma with the 'sold' sign. They are very excited and proud.

This was waiting for them when they arrived at the house along with a box of goodies too. Fancy having your very own labelled wine!!!! How special is that???!!!!

We are very happy for them and very proud of what they have acheived. We know that they will be very happy in their new home together. Best Wishes.

Zutterly wonderful!!

I love my 'Bind-it-all' machine.
I whipped up this little album in absolutely no time at all!! luv me

Birthday card.

Hello to you all.
It's my mum's birthday soon and I wante dto make her a card with a difference.
This is what I came up with. I punched out different coloured scallops. I stamped on the scallops with versa mark. I then punched small circles and stamped with 'happy birthday' letters. I joined them all together with ribbon.
I then attached my 'happy birthday' to a flower and attached the flower to the bottom of this box. I covered the box with pink bazzill that I also stamped with versa mark.

I folded up the letters and attached a ribbon to pull them out of the box with. I wrote my message to mum on the back of the scallops. It all fits very neatly inside the box.

I finished off with some ribbon and flowers. Waaaaa Laaaaaaaaa, finished product.
I think that she will like this one of a kind card.

Thanks for checking in. Bye for now.
luv me xxooxx

Hello again for today.
I was at home this afternoon, getting ready to go out for tea when the phone rang.
I answered and it was my Auntie & Uncle from Balaklava calling. "Are you doing anything tonight?" Auntie Kath asked.
It was soooooooooooo good to hear from them and after having a lovely tea with Joe's mum, I came home for a visit from them.

They have been doing a bit of travelling along the Great Ocean Road and surrounds. They have stopped in Naracorrte to catch up with me tonight. How exciting to have such a pleasant surprise!! I showed them around my house and then we talked and talked and talked some more!!!! Made a nice cuppa and finished chatting some more until they headed off.
I can handle more of these nice surprises!! hee hee
That's all for now.
luv me xxooxx


Hello all you beautiful people!!
I couldn't wait to open this parcel today!!!! It contained my Scrappers poster I ordered.
I was looking for something to hang on the wall in my scrapping area. I wanted it to be inspirational and ME!!! This is what I came up with.
I'm thinking that I may add my own 'personal touch' to it first and then hang. I like the colours and I really thought about the saying I wanted and thought that this was me. 'piNk22' is me and I wanted to include it on my poster too, and of course it HAD to be printed in pink!! hee hee
Hoping that you all like it too and you'll have to pay me a visit to actually see it hanging up in the flesh!!
Farewell for now.
luv me xxooxx

Hi guys!! Hoping that you are all drinking plenty of water and staying as cool as you can. It was nice to have a little relief last night, but then hot again today.
Never mind, we'll appreciate the cooler weather even more when it comes along - I know that I will anyway.
Cruised along to a clearing sale today. Boy was it HOT standind in the sun but I did manage to find some shade for a little while. Think I got a little red!!!
Anyway got the kids a feww good bargans again!! If you're not aware Jamie (my eldest) and his finance are moving into their house in 2 weeks time.
We managed to buy a dressing table and pantry cupboard along with some kitchen goods and odds and ends. Only ended up paying $2.00 for the pantry cupboard and $1.00 for boxes of the other goodies.
It's great when you are starting out to be able to source good stuff for your own home. I know that that's what we did when we were first married!! From memery our first longe suite was $10.00 for 5 pieces. We loved it and it lasted forever!!
So it was worth the little bit of discomfort to get some nice things for the kids again. They are just about set now with everything they need. Just need to MOVE IN!!! Storage at both parents sheds is at a premium!!! lol
Well I'm going to go sit and cool off a bit now!!!
Thanks for checking in and see ya soon.
luv me xxooxx
