Well right now, I'm mean't to be finishing up my essay for Art History Theory, but seeing as I am the Queen of procrastination, I wrote 37 words...then started looking around for other things to do...So I will only make this a short update. Uni has been AWESOME! its been crazy, fun, stressful, challenging and all the stuff I've been missing in my life. The boys and I have done a brilliant job in adapting to new routines, late nights and a crazier than usual OC mummy! I've made some lovely new friends in OBP..those especially who I like to call "my people" (if you watch Grey's Anatomy, you'll get it) .... Zeffy, Harry, Natasha and Julia have made me love coming to school...You guys Rock!. My teachers and lecturers have all pushed me outside my comfort Zone, and made me want to do better and better....So anyway, on the very long, long school break, I am endeavouring to write more regularly, and get back into a less hectic routine. Cheers B

Long time, no post!

Well I've been barely keeping up with my project life the last 2 weeks, school is just crazy! I keep thinking i will have time on the weekends to do my photo's and stuff and I can just see it falling behind;(.

I really hope that it doesn't happen,but I'm prepared for the eventuality, LOl! I'm writing this in the RMIT Student Learning Centre,whilst waiting for someone to check my annotated bibliography. Exciting hey? Anyway it's done! I think it's ok, but I probably could have spent more time, just filling it out a bit more. My major essay topic is going to be on Feminism and Art. That will be easier I think,writing about something that interests me is always easier. And I have 4 weeks to write it rather than 2! Iv'e designed my Earrings for jewellery Fundamentals,pretty happy with where they are going,I'm using sterling Silver,Bronze and PAPER! How can they not be awesome, right? Pretty much finished my spoon. And trundling along in Ideation,which is a weekly assessment based subject,probably my least favourite.... I Like the people in my classes,we are all starting to get a bit more comfortable with each other. I still find it sooo nerve wracking trying to find where I fit in, because I'm pretty sure I have never really fit in anywhere! I'm always the slightly weird,intense one,or older,or younger.... It's like having 2 separate lives too, School and Home. I do know that I am absolutely in love with my course, I'm learning so much every day, and I feel like I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be.

Michael has started a new contract job, for 4-6 months. It's in Tatura,which is a 2 hour drive from Melbourne,so he is staying 2 nights a week there and working at home on Wednesday's. I'm not going to lie, I hate it,but it's necessary and I know he doesn't want to do it either...*sigh*.

Anyway going to head off now.

Some new pages!

I've had some of these photo's hanging around for ages, so I thought a Blondie montage was in order! And the film strip one is of me and my DH, we went to a wedding recently, and they had a photo booth, so after a few Sav Blanc's, I dragged him in there! Quite enjoying my scrapping of late, so stay tuned!

Project Life! week one..



SSSooooo couldn't wait to do my first week of PL (finishes tomorrow,)that I did them today,LOL! already super happy with how they are working out! I like the quick,no brainer aspect of it,but I also like that I can tailor each card how I like,and USE MY STASH!!!!!
That was the other new years resolution a made,to not buy any more scrap embellishments until I have finished up some of the stuff I have because....I HAVE A LOT! and I do want to use them,but because I don't really scrap full pages very often any more,they were just sitting here looking pretty,but I always felt guilty about not using them!

Lots of inspiration from Michelle Wooderson (mishmash) and Marcy Penner.


My other New obsession is Vintage Pyrex! Gosh its sooooo pretty,and Practical too! Hoping to go to a trash and Treasure Sunday to see of I can pounce on some more! LOL!

Bonnie Doon

Came here for a picnic when Lincoln was about 6 months old... Sully would've been 2-1/2? There was no water, it was the height of the drought!!! Look at it now! Love these little churches too!
