A Busy Week

It's been a busy week... for being on school holidays.

Monday and Tuesday were lazy days at home, although Tuesday night we did have a really really bad thunderstorm at home which had both boys climbing for a place on my lap to protect them from the thunder. We did suffer a little bit of flooding inside the house, above the glass sliding door where we have just had a heap of new electrical work done... and after my sister told me she had a dream where I died from electrocution, I was paranoid about touching any powerpoints and light switches.

We sat in candle light until Darren got home from work.

I did Nicole's Superstar Class at Scraploot on Wednesday night... loving those swirls, girlfriend!!!!

Then Thursday I spent the day scrapping with friends from JEHS and Ivona. Usually I have a school holiday scrapping day at my house, but this time I suggested we do it as Scraploot (no house cleaning required). What a great day.

Then Saturday was a huge day of scrapping. I did the Buzz and Bloom Mother's Day book class at Scraploot and then stayed on for the Saturday night social scrap. What a buzy day and a fun night. Thanx for the laughs girls... and Craig... I haven't laughed so hard in a while.

Below is a look at some of my stuff. The first is a clock I made and taught last year.

This is a layout I did this week. I'm trying to do something with older photos instead of always printing out new ones to work with.

And one of Riley and my niece and nephew (Tayla and Jack) back in April 2006.

and a close up

Enjoy your week.

Easter Egg Hunt

This year I was a bit better organised than in past years, or maybe it is because the kids are getting older and I have to be more organised to outsmart them! Whichever it is, I had their Easter baskets made and ready for the Easter Bunny to fill with chocolate.

I made a blue one for Riley and a green one for Kody. There won't be any pink ones. My life is destine to be shades of blue & green forever. Below is a collage of our Easter Egg Hunt.

Besides being Easter I also had time for some scrapbooking. Thought you might like to see what I did yesterday.

And some close ups of all the blading (for those that are interested).

Happy Easter to all

Back again

Hi All

I know, I know... it has been a very very very long time since I last update my blog and many of you probably thought I dropped off the face of the earth. Not quite. Just been a very very busy girl.

There have been a few changes in my life since I last posted. I turned 40. I had a HUGE masquerade party with all my wonderful friends. Those of you who came THANKYOU. I will be posting photos here and on Facebook soon.

My swimming pool is finished... well not quite, but it was good enough for my party to be held at home. We still have a few ISSUES with the pool builder, but hopefully we will sort that out soon.

I am now teaching (scrapbooking, cardmaking and off-the-page) at a wonderful new store... Scraploot. If you haven't been there yet, do yourself a favour and go... it is a scrapbookers version of heaven. My first class is on Thursday, April 30th at 7:00pm and I will be teaching Mother's Day Cards.

My eldest, Riley, has started school. He loves it. I can't believe that after eight weeks of school he can read. Wow... you kindy/primary school teachers are amazing. Further on the subject of school, I am now the secretary of the P&C. I know, you are all asking yourselves "When is she gonna fit that in?" Who needs sleep. I'll sleep when I'm dead.

My youngest, Kody, is toilet trainging with a little more success at the moment. It has been almost two months of trying and I was beginning to pull my hair out. Especially when Riley only took a week to toilet train and he was six months younger than Kody when he did it.

My oldest and bestest friends (Joanne, Dorothy, Kerryn and Sharon) in the whole world and I, have booked a trip to Melbourne for a four day weekend in May to celebrate turning 40. We are all so excited and can't wait. There will be lots of drinking, laughing and fun I will make sure we have photos as well.

OK, now for a project. My friend Hazel asked me to make her a card for a wedding she is attending this weekend. She paid me in my favourite currency... chocolate.

I hope to do more regular updating form here on in. So, I'll be posting again soon.

Enjoy your weekend.
