Digital Scrapbooking...


You may or may not know,that I sometimes dabble in Digi Scrapping,and hybrid Scrapping too,this is a gorgeous Digi kit called "Clementine",from Shabby Princess,they do the most divine Downloadables.. I like to break out the Digi sometimes,when I'm in the lounge in front of the Tele,less messy!

So this picture is the same as the one below,just done as a Digital Scrapbook Page.

Cheers B.

Oh and Merry Christmas! I'm taking bets that the $5 jelly bean pooping reindeer will be the hit of the day!LOL!

Christmas photo shoot...



I actually don't really like Christmas,if we didn't have kids we wouldn't really celebrate it at all...When you don't have any family,it's just build up to another day...That's a whole other story tho...LOL!

So I asked the boys to let me take some NICE pictures of them,which I havn't done for ages,as they are usually filthy,wearing orange and red,or just totally non co-operative.This morning I cleaned them up after brekky,dressed them in nuetral colours,and took some pics...probably about 60? Maybe 5 of them are any good,silly smiles,silly faces,not looking at the camera,fighting with each other....Oh my word it's hard work!!

So here's the pick of the bunch..

Merry Christmas (Bah Humbug)

Cheers B

Whoo Hoo...First Year of School over....


Hi,
Yes we survived Prep! Sully has had a Fantastic year,made lots of friends,learned to read, spell and write.So I think it's been a fantastic start to his school career,his report was excellent,with the only negative comment being,that he rushes his work,so he can move on to the next thing,and needs to take more care with his colouring etc..

Lincoln has also finished up at his Daycare ,as next year he will be going to the same Kinder that Sully went to ,so I mourn the loss of my 2 child free whole days a week,back to 3, 3 hour sessions of 4 year old Kinder...pain in the arse really,but then the year after I will finally be able to perhaps turn my crafty talents to something a little more financially viable!! So everyone keeps telling me!

FRREEEDDDDOOMMMM!!!!! ha ha ha ha...nah I love being at home with my boys,it's just so very full on,and I have little in the way of Familial support,and have only recently started to Farm the boys off for a few playdates and stuff..


I have finished making this Kaiser Craft advent calender,quite easy to put together,but lots of prep needed and very fiddly,I am happy with how it has turned out tho...

Have just gotten Linky's kinder photo's,which are just adorable,so look out there may be some scrapping coming up..:)
And I have had yet another dose of Conjuctivitus,yyeerrcckkk....so sick of wiping snotty noses !!!!there's only so much hand washing and germ killer one can deal with!!!
Cheers B

Look out,even more Craft!!!,and my Kindle..





I'm sure you've all been wanting to see,this is my Kindle!!!,the Skin is from the US,(of course),and you can get many designs,it just helps to personalise it and protect it from scratches and stuff....Still loving it,havn't had lots of time to read tho...

The other photo's are of a little post it note holder I've beem making,inspiration from Chic"n"scratch,in the USA,and My ribbon Jar which I got the inspiration from Nichole Heady's Blog(From Papertrey INK)...The Label is a free download from the "Graphics Fairy", she does beautiful Vintage inpired Clip art,love her stuff...
And a notebook,using Websters Pages,PP.

Cheers B

Look out...CRAFT!




Here's some stuff I had made in the last few months,but hadn't taken pics of..
My Christmas card for this year,using a cuttlebug folder,ink,and a stamped image,very easy...My Mint tins that I mentioned ages ago,and my DS's Teacher gift for his first year at school,the stamps I used on the front and the design, comes from Papertrey Ink,an American company that does the most useful and beautiful acrylic stamps,and they arrived today!!!! (Sunday) I stalk my postie/parcel man,but he took me quite by surprise,apparently it's because of the huge Christmas influx.
Cheers B
