Not MORE!!!!!!

Hi & welcome.
This is the lastest edition to my craft room - (note to self - must come up with a name for my room). We found this fantastic shelving unit at a clearing sale this afternoon. I left it to Joe to do the bidding & let him know what to I was prepared to go up to. Then when he arrived home - he had it in the back of the ute!! Yeah for me. How cool and how lucky am I!!!! Thanks heaps babe.
I knew it would be great item to display craft goodies on, as it is all shelves. So I rearranged my room a little to fit it in & popped some things onto the shelves.
So what do you all think of my lastest acquisition?????
I'm off to Coco's tomorrow until Thursday for a visit and a well deserved play!!! Can't wait to get there and spend some time together.
OK, cheers for now my lovelies!!!
luv me xxooxx

Just a quick one .....

Breezing out the door in 5, but just before I leave, I thought that I would post a few pics of the lastest card I have made.
The stamp is from a new set I bought from Kasazz. Over 60 words, which will be very handy for allsorts.

A little glimpse of the inside of the card.

Front cover.
Well I hope you all enjoy your weekend. I'm off to cook teas for Senior Presentation night for Kyby.
Bye for now.

Just a quick post today.
Just letting everyone know that even though it was a FLYING visit, it was so much fun to catch up with Kathryn again.
She had to come back over here to check on house & check cleaning, so popped into Craft Group last night & stayed the night at my place.
Had a chat & a talk, & another chat & a laugh & a giggle, etc and finally wandered off to bed after midnight!!!!
Therefore a little tired today after a hectic weekend.
It was so nice though.
And a HUGE thank you to Susy girl for my most beautiful, gorgeous, stunning cup cakes topped with fairies & flowers for my birthday!! They were very yummy, thanx.
So I bid Kathryn farewell this morning & headed off to work, looking forward to her next visit in mid October.
So bye for now chickens!!!!
luv me xxooxx

Here's a quick snap shot of the inside of my last card. And this is my 'Things" card. I wasn't realyy sure where I was going with this one, I had an idea but this is where I ended up.
Inside detail. A few pieces of feather & bling of course!!!

I stamped the stamp - 'things' inside with versamark for detail.

I hope that you have been enjoying checking out my lastest cards.

Are you 'Adorable?' ......

On a roll with another card!!!
I was inspired to create this card when I was perusing a scrapping magazine.
At the moment, I am enjoying coming up with ideas and bringing them to life. No pressure!! The background of this card was made by dobbing some distress inks onto my non-stick craft mat, spritzing with water & sliding my paper across it to pick up the inks. I also stamped my dress stamp in the ink too.

The ribbon I used was a new one that only just arrived in my hot little hands today!! It's from Ribbons Galore. Great shop for all sorts of ribbons.

I then finished off with a bit of bling and waa laaa.
Thanx for checking in.
luv me xxooxx

Spring & Birdhouse ....

Hi everybody!
This is my lastest Scraperlicious Challenge page. This month we had a 'blind challenge'. This is where we were given a set of instructions to follow to create our page. It will be interesting to see each one's interpretation of the rules. Theme was - flowers. The photo I have used on my page are of flowers blooming in my garden. This is a view of my title on my page.
I found these cute smiley face beads & just had to include them on my Spring Flower page.

My birdhouse. Yes ... you're right ...... I copied from the picture & used the same papers as on the birdhouse as I just LOVED the look of it. I have put the hooks on & will hang it in my kitchen for my keys.

I love the colours of the papers & the patterns with the birds & flowers.

Well thanks for checking in with what I've been up to. Enjoy your night & safe safe!!
luv me xxooxx

First I had my 'Lady in Red' & now looking 'Cool in Blue'.
This one I added a little lace & some beads, along with a large 'jewel'.
A different view.

Having a sneak peak inside.

A close up of the music paper, wire & beads.

I'm quite proud of these efforts as I have created them all by myself!!! woo hoo, getting into this collage card a bit now.
Thanx for looking.

The RED one.

This is a card that I put together today after I completed all my household chores!!! lol
I am in the process of making another one in blues/greens too. I must get myself some more 'lady' stamps to use on my cards as I only have this one.
I found some very old music sheets that someone was throwing away, so I snavelled them up quick smart!!! Sorry the image is a little blurry, but I was trying to photograph this outside in the wind!!!
A close up of the top right hand side with the cute little red flower.

And this one was one of it standing up, but then a gust came along & blew it over but it turned out ok anyway, hee hee.

So there you have it for now. Keep an eye out for the completed bluey one soon.
Cheers. luv me xxooxx

Let's 'SPRING' to it .....

Hello & welcome.
This is just a quick snap shot of a little sprinkling of some flowers in garden.
Love the colours and freshness they bring to the yard. I always find that flowers make me feel happy for some reason.
This is the finished product of the album I was asked to create. My 'adopted' daughter asked me to come up with an album for her bestest friend, Clare ...... so this is what I designed for her.
Clare is a real girly girl & loves pink. So I thought what better thing to do other than a PINK CASTLE for a PRINCESS!!! I added fairies, flowers, rub-ons & bling!!!
I hope she likes it????
Well I hope you are all staying safe & well & enjoying the sunshine while it's out!!!
Cheers for now.
luv me xxooxx

Hi All!!!
Jamie and Emma went to Adelaide last weekend and I was ever so kind (hard job!! lol) to babysit Chloe. She was an angel to look after and we had heaps of fun together. She did miss her dad though & was very happy when he came to pick her up. Yesterday I did some catering in the town hall for a Limestone Coast Leaders Conference. (school thing) This is a pic of what I served for them for lunch. We did savoury & sweet scones for morning tea & lasagne or quiche for lunch. They could choose from beef or vegetable lasagne served with salad or chicken & asparagus, garden vegetable or ham, cheese & chives quiche served with salad. Got great feedback & everyone so enjoyed having a choice.

This is a page that I created for a friend. We attended her 50th birthday party & had a ball, so I thought I would treat her to a scrap page from the night. She loved it.
And lastly, this is what happens to your arm when you stir homemade pumpkin soup & it spits at you!!!! OUCH!!!

I didn't realise how HOT it was. It splashed up onto my arm & I thought oooooch & wiped it off, not thinking it did any real damage!!! But then it blistered up & this is how it is today. So please take care when stirring hot things!!

So there you have it. A brief run thru of what I've been up to.
Bye for now & take care.
luv me xxooxx

Hi everyone. Hoping that all is well with you & yours. I am doiong fine now. I travelled to Mount Gambier yesterday to have an ultrasound on my ankle. I also was treated to a wonderful cortisone injection in my ankle too. Ooooooch!! I have been told that I have severe tendonitis!! Well at least now I know what's going on & it has a name!! I have been in constant pain with the stupid thing, so now I have been treated, it should settle down & be ok!???!! Fingers crossed anyway! xxxxx
Life has been busy at the moment, well, it seems to be like that ALL the time!!! Kirby & Simon have moved into their house now & it was so exciting for them!! I am very proud of both my boys as they have done well for themselves.
The time is drawing near for another wondeful friend to leave us here in Naracoorte - Kathryn. We are going out for coffee & cake tomorrow night for a last hurrah. She heads off on next Wednesday. It will be so sad to see her go, but then we are all planning many a visit, etc!!
Work is keeping me busy too. I have some catering in the town hall next week & just the end of term stuff coming up. I can't believe that we are nearly on school holidays AGAIN!!! You all know what that means ........ that time of the year is getting very close!!
So I hope you all stay healthy & safe. Until next time ......
luv me xxooxx
