Some things are done ......

Hello Bloggers.
This is a layout that I completed for a class at the shop. Although the shots may not be the most flattering of me  .........  it is who I am. These were taken at Bendigo when Coco & I visited Kathryn for her birthday.
This cutie is also me !!! I did this layout for class too but as no-one booked in, I just have them on display.
This is me when I was about 5/6 years old.
Remember this unfinished project I posted about a little while ago ?? Well it's finished now !! I added some flowers, metal and a butterfly to make it look pretty.
This is a close-up of the key, twine, beads and flowers.
Thanks for checking in today.
Stay warm and take care.
luv me xxooxx

Family time.

We ventured out today for a wood cut. Joe has a new chainsaw as we have decided to cut our own wood again. Both the boys have wood fire places [soon] and with this cold, cold weather lately, we can't kept the wood pile full!!!
 We took Chloe with us of course and being the dog she is ....... LOVES any form of water!!! Here she found this tiny mud puddle .... but it was big enough for her to roll around in and cool off!!! hee hee
 it never matters how old your kids get ...... they still like being a kid and bouncing on the tree limbs !!!
 Oh ...... and LOVE to show off their 'guns' too, hee hee. Thanks Spud for making me laugh.
 And there has to always be a windmill in the picture.
 Oooohhhhhh ..... who's that on the end of the chainsaw ????? It's ME !!!!! Well ..... when you are surrounded with testosterone ... you do have to show them that you can cut it like the best of them !!!! hey !!!
 As we moved along, Chloe did manage to find the best water hole to swim in.
 Everyone had a go on the chainsaw and it made light work of cutting.
We had a great day ..... we all got to have a laugh at the funny things that happen and Chloe got to get wet, play with the ball and hang out with her 'Ma'.
Thanks so much boys for helping us out, we love you both very much. xxx
Well I'll sign off for now.
luv me xxooxx

What's that ..... I can't see you ..............

I have been enjoying watching the sheep dogs strut their stuff this week from the comfort of my heated shop window.
This was the view I had this morning .... mmmmmm ..... just a 'little' foggy, hey.
 The trials continued on regardless and as the morn moved on, I swear the fog got even thicker !!! These men and their dogs didn't bat an eyelid & continued to fasinate me with their skill and expertise.Then, you know, before you knew it ....... it was gone !!!
These dogs are certainly born to round up the sheep and their masters are very pleased with their performances [well most of the time. Some get it wrong on the day but hey.... we can all have a bad hair day !!] I enjoyed talking to a few of these fine gentlemen and a pat of their well loved dogs.
It certainly is interesting where I work. You're never quite sure what will turn up next !!
Cheers for now & stay safe & warm.
luv me xxooxx

Coco's visit.

Hello friends.
We were blessed to have Coco visit and host a collage card class at the shop. It was so good to have the chance to catch up with her & the boys [Dave & Thomas]. We had such fun and laughs on Tuesday night at my place. Thanks girls for making the effort to call around for lots of giggles and hugs.
We had wonderful attendance at the classes. Thank you for your support and I'm sure everyone had a blast and learnt more about creating a collage card.
I am happy to inform everyone that the family made it safely to Adelaide and Coco was able to get to the seaside and dip her toes into the water [albeit it was FREEZING !!! lol].
Thanks Coco and boys for sharing a small snippet of your holidays with us here back in Naracoorte.
Thanks again everyone for your support.
Looking forward to my holidays starting tomorrow........ yeah !!!!
Cheers for now.

luv me xxooxx
