I Lost my boys on the weekend they decided to go and spend the night at my Mum and Dads place at Lake Canobolas(for those of you that don't know Orange this is one of Oranges icons) they Live in the Caretakers Cottage. So Matt and I went up to my mates Lyn and Pete's place for dinner. The boys watched DVDs all night and us girls scrapped for about 4 hours. I got my mini book done for Bec. I held a Baby shower for Bec a few weeks ago and I got the Guests to write down their piece of advice. I then placed all these in Becs "Advice from the Heart" book. It turned out quite different to what I had planned.

On Sunday morning I went out to the Lake to pick up my children and they had gone to my other Brother and Fiances place for the afternoon. Jamie and Jodie finally bought them home at 4.30pm and we all sat down and play the new electronic banking monopoly. It was quite Fun. We didn't finish until 10pm (only cause we had had enough). I am going to see my beautiful Niece tomorrow and I will give them the advice book and the Hanging. I really hope they like them.

Thanks for dropping by!!

This is a wall Hanging that I made for My Brother Andrew and sister in Law Bec for their new Baby Elise my Niece. I wanted my present to them to be completely different to your usual Baby clothes and products. I know that they will Love it. I used old drink coasters that I had laying around the house then just covered them in carstock and added photos and embelishments. I am very pleased how it turned out.
I have two more parts to add to this present. At Becs baby shower I got all the guests to write down a piece of advice. I am now putting these words of Wisdom into a mini book. I am then doing another mini book about families for them to cherish.
Cant half tell that I am a loving and excited Auntie!!!
Thanks for dropping by

The Layout above is one that I have just completed on MUD!!!
Both my boys get messy in Mud at any chance available. In the corner of the yard we have a small patch that the grass doesnt grow. My boys worked out that if you turn the Tap on it runs down the path and hits this patch and makes mud. Then they strip naked and play in the mud. I dont mind as it is healthy for children to get dirty. The very first time they did it I had a fit.
Thanks for stopping by

Layout for a Circle Journal

This is a recent Layout that I completed for a Circle Journal that I am involved with. You had to answer questions and randomly put them into a layout. Everyone else just printed out strips and organised them on the page but I wanted to be different so I can up with this. It needs something else but not quite sure what yet.

I recently went to see Pink live in concert with my Buddy Lee. We had a fantastic time. Pink is the most amazing performer that I have seen.

I have just had a quiet weekend at home as I have had one of my boys in hospital with croup. So we stayed inside all weekend and didn't venture out of the house. Lots of DVDs got watched.
