Had a heap of work accepted for publication lately and I can't put up the rest just yet as it is DT work for over at Bon's...

I've been using Bon's BOY kit (and the girl kit too)....I think these are my fav kits ever of hers!!!!

another post by me...something must be wrong LOL.

nah just think I've finally caught the blog bug!

So we went camping at Sandy Point for the Cup weekend with Kell, Jase and their two kids, Jade and Josh. Had a great time, weather was a mixture of everything, but the kids had fun...especially Jade and Isy who played sooooo well all weekend!!!

05 November, 2009


yes it's been a BIG month -it's been a VERY BUSY one!! and we've hardly been in Melbourne so a bit hard to blog!

So what's news?

1) I'm pregnant - 20 weeks today.
We are very very very excited! It has been a very long road to get to this stage, but after a couple of years of hell, and some mishaps along the way we can say we have a very healthy baby on the way, due March 23rd 2010!


2) I am the guest DT member until the end of December over at Bon's Scraps....

Here are some of my latest creations....scrapping is a little hit and miss at the moment...I think it's the pregnancy hormones!!!

3) We spent 2 weeks on the Sunshine Coast, staying at Sunshine Beach, hanging out there and in Noosa....weather was perfect...27 - 29 everyday...and all we did was relax, go to the beach and swim in the pool!

and we just got back from 5 days camping at Sandy Point with Kell and Jase and Jade and Josh...but I will blog those in the next week i promise!

mmmm i think that's it...

Isy turns 3

Yes that's right 3!!! what a big girl...and here are just a few shots from her b'day. We had it on Grand Final day and at Murrumbeena Playgroup. From us she got a bike...that's all she wanted...and she loves it. She had a great time and I think all the other kids did too.

A day out with friends

Today was a lovely day....not a very long one but a lovely day nonetheless...

We don't get to spend as much time with Flynn and Jodie atm, due to Jodie's work committments but Jodie didn't have to to work today so we decided to take the kids to Myuna farm (just near Dandenong).

The kids loved it, the weather was pretty good (got a bit chilly towards the end) and we saw heaps and heaps of animals!

Just a few snaps from today....

Scrapping wise what have I been doing...NOT MUCH!!! just been busy and very tired....I think I've lost my mojo!

and the last few pages I've done I've not been happy with AT ALL...but i'll show you anyway!

Oh and have you seen the latest edition of Scrapbooking Creations (it's #67)? Well I'm the Artist in the Spotlight this month....let me know what it's like...I haven't seen it yet, as I haven't' got my contributor's copy yet :0

Loving the lack of pressure at the moment! So I'm playing around with my camera, loving the way my photos have changed now I know how to use my camera LOL....here's a few of my scrapping creations I've done recently!

This was for the May Write Now challenge over @ Bonsscraps

This was a BC done with the lovely Peta MacBeth....just love her BC's. I used the May Boy Kit from Bonsscraps. I was AFRAID of this kit...but just LOVE how this turned out! Aren't those flowers gorgeous - from Bon's of course (they're sold out now but check out her shop for other yummy goodies!).

I'm not a 123 Challenge CT member anymore (just have too much on now) but I did manage to do the June Challenge this month...criteria is material (my background), more than 6 buttons and handstitching....I was loving this until I added the buttons...I'll blame Gigi for that one LOL.

And this is one of my favs at the moment...did this for the June Write Now at Bon's....

Of course I can't leave without sharing some photos of the most gorgeous girl around.....

26 April, 2009


The question needs to be raised....why do I have a blog?

I'm so bad at updating....How long ago did I blog?2.5 months ago...that's shocking! Ok so settle in, here's an update.

1) Work is fine....a few minor issues but nothing I can't sort out IYKWIM.
2) Nath is great. Job is good.

3) Isobel is great. No more crying when we leave her at Day Care (yay). Toilet training all done, she is such a star. She's also moved rooms and is in love with her big bed and new room.

4) We went camping at Cumberland River (Lorne) for Easter. It was out first time camping as a family and whilst it was a bit of hard work, we had a great time, despite the zip on the tent (Dad's tent) busting on Saturday. So we are going to get a new tent with separate rooms, a new mattress (NOT a lilo) for us, a camp stretcher for Isy and a camp stove and we are going to try and go camping at least twice a year as a family. Great, cheap, relaxing holidays!

5)We are on the IVF train again. I won't be writing too much about it as it is such a long process and we are trying to not think about it all the time, let me just say it is going well, I have lost my mind, can't remember things at all, been quite silly but we are definitely on our way to having another baby. The next time I update this blog, hopefully I will be pregnant!

6) Scrapping wise, haven't done a lot! March I only did 4 LOs, no not in a week...in the whole month!!! April has been slightly better.....went to a crop with Bon's - did acouple of LOS there and I am hanging out for the CC over at Bon's this Tuesday, have some great photos to scrap and need a challenge or 2 or 3. Here's my latest stuff.

Have a great week....
