Saturday Night

On Saturday the lovely Judy B threw a wonderful end of year party for all her staff at the hospital and we were lucky enough to make it on to the exclusive invitation list, and we had a ball!!! Thank you so much Judy, for thinking of us. It was a great night!!!
This is Judy getting her "groove" on and boy can she groove!! Judy and Benedict absolutely rock when it comes to tripping the lights fantastic!

Mel-Belle and Natalie

Natalie and Michael (hahaha, looks like he is in trouble! He wasn't but I have managed to get photos mid expression on everyone, wait till you see the ones I scrap)

Kev and I (not the best photo, and would you believe 2 weddings and a dinner/dance later, not one decent photo of us. It is a conspiracy!!)

I swear I have some art to show you very soon, it must have just been one of those fortnights, can't seem to catch up. But I will post photos asap!!

Take care of each other,
see you soon.

Your cordially invited to have a look!

Hello, just another quick update. Thought I would show you some invitations I knocked up the other day for display in Scraptivate.

Please excuse the photos, they were taken with my iphone (just gotta luurrve the iphone), and they were just sitting on my grubby old work mat.

Had big plans to show you a finished work of art I have made for the joyous season but unfortunately Angus got to it and broke my cone... lucky I am not short of adhesive type substances. It has put the completion off a little though! The joys of motherhood!!

Take card of each other,
see you soon!

Pride, Lessons and Laughter

Sorry about the quality of the photo, yes, I took it in church... with my phone... UMMMM VAAAAAHHH - "Hail Mary full of Grace..." will say a few more of them to make up for it.  Although I am sure that God understands how much I want to share my pride in my (not so big) boy.

Yes that is my Moo-Moo, first time as altar server.  I am so proud he has taken on the responsibility and that he is learning about taking on a role of care and service within the community.  Whether it be in the church, in the family or just in the wider community, I think it is soo important that I teach my children to take care of people and offer support and service to those that need it.  Taking on a role like altar server just helps give the opportunity to put that in practice. 

Father Bonaventure actually really helped my in his sermon on Saturday, he touched on a point that is something I struggle with on a day to day basis.  Without prattling on I will pass on to you his gem of truth as I am sure this will make a lot of sense to alot of us no matter what your faith or convictions...
"When you win the rat race, you are still a rat."   
Think I am ready to take 5 minutes out and have some time for peace and gratitude, how 'bout you?

Now on to something a bit lighter...

This is Anghee (2) being difficult, if I can't take photos of him now what is he going to be like as a teenager!?!

Take care of each other (and yourself), 
see you soon.

I know what boys like...

Does anyone else remember that song except me? "I know what boys like, I know what guys want, I know what boys like, boys like, boys like me, nah nah nah nah nah!" Eighties music, YUM!!!

Anyway, that is not quite where I was going. I was actually refering to the fact that I love Halloween because of all the great releases, ie. paper, stamps, ephemera. While we don't celebrate Halloween in the traditional/commercial sense, I love the Halloween stuff because most of it ROCKS when it comes to making cards, pages and OTP projects for boys! Here are a couple of 'boy' cards I have made for my big boys to use for some of their mates birthdays. BTW, I was also playing with UTEE and Opals!! Heellllooooo, how cool are they???!!! So happy with the drippy effect!!  It took a while but I have it down to a fine art and here is a tip - it doesn't involve a melt pot!!!  I layered a bit of black UTEE on the already melted Opals and then reheated it all to get the top of the bat wings. Loved this and am definately going to play with that a bit more, think that effect could really look gorgeous with the right colours and the right pattern!!

Take care of each other,
see you soon.
