I am having fun!

Since I have been confined to the house ill - what the heck... lets get crafting. I have set myself a challenge to use every stamp set that I own which is in the current catty along with the borrowed ones from Claire and Michelle.
So I will finish my challenge today then its to the photoshop and uploading. Some of the designs are from the catty (with some slight variations - as I don't have every type of ink pad,ribbon,brad etc...) Some have been CASEd from Splitcoaststampers and the others are from Claire. She is such a wonderful person and shares everything.
Here in Perth the weather is going to be miserable so I am glad to be inside..

We are getting eggs from the girls, Lenny, Red and Jess.. I have collected two in the last three days so it looks like all the hardwork (not) is paying off!!

Well its off to play some more - have a wonderful day.
Please check back in a couple of days to take a peek at my hard work.. I was working so hard yesterday - when my hubbie rang from up north (FIFO) I thought it must have been lunch time, but Oh No.. I had worked right through lunch and it was about 1.30pm.. Whoops... ha ha ha how time flys when you are having fun!!

Love ya lots

What a month! and it hasn't finished yet....

Sorry for being away so long!

Today I am home sick - yes I have the Flu, although some have suggested its the swine variety (I think not) as I am feeling more human as the hours go by!

My dad's sister passed away earlier this month - and I have spent most of the time worrying about him, as well as him going to the doctor and having a melanoma cut from his ear! I guess men of his age 70's went without hats for most of their life and are now paying the price. So we had to wait for his results - thank goodness it was good news - however, there are still some spots the doctors are watching! I have been trying to get the creative process flowing and I must say its been hard. My hubby has been painting some walls inside for the big 21st in August ( my girls - yes two of them, are turning 21) the family will be visiting and this to some extent puts creativity on the back burner! Hopefully he will be finished this weekend and I will be able to clean up all the dust he manages to get everywhere! and we can get some semblence of "clean house"..

Take care and stay safe..
Perhaps this arvo I will get to have a play.

Creative juices are flowing ~ with some catalogue help.

I've had a go and here's what I've come up with! Yes, they are out of the catalogue - which is what everyone has told me to do... and I must say they look ok.

Well have a great day/night.

Stay safe

My first delivery is here!!

I came home from work and found a huge box on the kitchen table. I was very excited to see that my first delivery had arrived. I couldnt wait to open it!
As you can see I managed to spread it out everywhere!

It was easy to see I had some work ahead to do. Thats creative work!
Even Hallie (cat) had a helping hand in the work!

So now all I have to do is get the creative juices flowing.

Stay safe.

Its been a rough week....

My dad's sister died on Saturday - so we have had a blue week. The funeral is tomorrow in a small country town in Western Victoria and my love goes out to all my family at this time - especially Alice, Jim, Joyce, Keith and Dad and my cousins Nola, Robert, Ian, Shirley, Ann and their families.

Hugs and love to you all.
