So I have forgotten how nice country people are... We went to Ballarat yesterday, just for a drive and to visit a really cool little scrapbooking shop called "The Imagination Factory" (waving hi Fiona!!!) and after we went to Bakers delight for the obligatory cheese and Bacon Rolls, and the lady who served us was super nice!!! I forget that we city folk, don't always connect with lots of people, always in a rush and such....Then we went next door to get something sweet as an after lunch treat, and the guy who served us was super nice as well!!! I asked him about the Lake (Wendouree) as I had heard it was mostly dried up...(It is)..and he couldn't have been more helpful. I come from Daylesford originally so Ballarat was my next major town, and I knew it pretty well. We had our rolls at the now dried up Lake, and the boys had a go on some pretty mean See Saws!!! Lincoln was laughing his little head off!!!

Cheers

And another one...I find it easier to go with a basic design, and then you can mass produce them without too much drama. After all most likely they will end up in the bin....

Christmas Cards

Here are some of my own chrissy cards that I have been making,I actually hate the idea of Christmas cards, but I feel guilty every year as they start arriving, so I thought if I get them rolling now I won't be so stressed about doing them later on!!!

Using Scraps, (from last year!!!) My trusty cuttlebug, and my Sepia ink pad....

Went to paperific yesterday... pretty good, not too crowded, but also not as much good stuff...I did however complete one mission, to find Basic Grey's new christmas card kit....I did them last year and they were divine...even better this year I reckon, not so much snow and mittens kinda thing (let's face it it just not and Aussie christmas thing)...I also found another Tim holtz stamp binder, I now have 3! I usually buy them from overseas, but the dollar is soo crap at the moment it's not really worth it.Will pop some of my other X-mas cards up later.

Cheers

City versus Suburbia..


Being a stay at home Mum, me and the boys tend to drive around melbourne a bit (usually looking for Scrapbook shops!!!) and having worked in the city for 10 years, I would like to think i have a fair grasp on the workings of the CBD....Any hoo, last Friday we went into the city, and against my better judgement, I didn't buy Bakers delight rolls on the way and thought we'd get something in the city...2 cheese and vegemite sandwiches and a baked potato later....$22.50!!!! I nearly passed out on the spot!!!! Maccas for 4 people dosn't even cost that much!!!


Yesterday, Narre Warren hot bread shop, 2 sandwiches, 1 cheese, 1 peanut butter, a Thomas fruit drink, and 2 face cookies.......$10.30....


Makes you think huh?


Here's the boys enjoying their cookies at the botanical gardens...I'm going to miss these sorts of expeditions when Sully goes to school next year....
