G'day

Hi all, have been feeling like crap this week, I have a headcold,and I have totally lost my voice! Hahahaha....not funny for a person who can talk the leg off a table,and 2 chairs... And I can't yell at my kids! They are taking full advantage of the situation,I whispered at Sully last night after asking him to do something 6 times "why do you never listen to a word I say?",and his answer was "because you have a very quiet voice mummy"...lol! Have done a couple of pages recently, but have put them up for classes at Scrappy Hollow, and I'm saving my scrap mojo for the scrapbook scene Bushfire releif crop, on next saturday, then the crop for kids the saturday after.DH has been awayfor work since Tuesday,so he owes me many, many,many child free days!!! I'm so over being sick!!! I used to get a cold like once a year before kids,now I seem to always be sick,I hate it, I'm not a person who sits still for longer than 2 minutes, so being sick is a mega inconvenience, and not being able to speak is torture,Lets hope my voice is back before Saturday, I'm kinda classed as the entertainment at my crop days,( I use humour as a way to break the ice as I'm actually very shy)and it could be very quiet if I'm not annoying everyone with my talking!!!!

New Page..


Hello,

Busy, busy, busy!! Sullivan has 3 parties to go to this weekend!! 2 yesterday and another tommorow!..I'ts very exhausting, and I'm torn between worrying about spoiling him, and letting him think this is the norm, and being glad he's well liked by his peers!! I was certainly not allowed to go to every party I was invited to (which wasn't that many my Mum is pretty scary to small children)ha ha, so I suppose I will just go along with it for now.

Did this page on Friday afternoon, it was the only time all week that I had some quiet time at home...It's of my Little Munchie Lincoln, with a footy, of course!!! taken at the now devastated Marysville, Anzac day last year, I do hope it recovers from the fires, Autumn up there is truly breathtaking.

My class at Scrappy Hollow, has been post poned, hopefully I will be able to do a class soon, and then the ice will be broken!!If not i may just keep my stuff to myself!!! LOL!

Cheers B

Some Stuff



Iv'e done this Kaiser notepad thingy in Basic Grey,bittersweet,for a friend who has just moved into a new house..is it just me or does Kaiser stuff rock now? I used to think their papers and stuff were a bit naff,but the range is just soo good now, and very reasonably priced!

and the other is a very quick page, using mostly scraps,I seem to be going for a very clean visual style lately, less "frilly" than I usually do,but I still struggle with the whole "white space" school of thought.It's also the last of the K-mart printed photo's that I had, I quite often panic when I go to do them at the shops,the boys are always fighting or wandering off, people behind you waiting etc,and my mummy brain gets all confused!! Then the sizes and finish are never what I set out to print,that's one reason I am mourning the best Matte photo paper EVER!! I'd much rather print them at home....

The retired list is here!!

I am a very slack Stampin' Up! demonstrator... I find it hard to push people to buy things, I just take orders from people, and put them with my own, I don't do parties, I don't do workshops, and I like it that way...But it's always exciting at this time of year, when the retiring list comes out,,, because it means that the new catalogue is on it's way!!! (we can place orders from the 1st of April) When it arrives I will spend waayy to much time and Money buying all the new stamp sets! I have just ordered the new 'In colours' for 2009, should be here by Thursday.. yay!

If you want a list of the retiring stamp sets,leave me your email address, and i'll shoot you off the list.And if you want a catalogue, I usually only buy one box of 8, and distribute those free of charge, after that they cost 15$ each...so if you want a copy, again let me know!I luuurvvve Stampin' Up!s products, they really are fab!
Hoping to get some scrapping done this week, last week just didn't seem to have enough hours in it!!

Cheers B
