I have been accepted as a design team member!!! I am so excited and happy and cannot wait to start work with these products ... I will post more info once I have signed the paperwork :-). Here is a page I did of me when I was little... I wanted something old-fashioned but not hertiage (I'm not that old)!! I pulled out the sewing maching and sewed the paper squares together using zig-zag, I also did a faux bow (which I am still not sure if I like) and I also made the teddy bear from a template I downloaded. Will write again soon!!
I took this gorgeous photo of my baby at Bondi Beach today...we went for a drive to have a look around...I got up early and had my blood tests done this morning and now I just have to wait for the results so keep your fingers crossed for me. Tomorrow I am going to go and get my hair coloured and get some wave put into it, I love getting my hair done. I still have a gift voucher my husband gave me for Christmas to get a manicure and pedicure (paws and claws), I must go and get that done soon too. Very busy week coming up for me, Wednesday Riley has an appointment at the hospital for his asthma... Thursday I am meeting up with an online friend for the first time to have coffee... why am I telling you all this? ha ha
On Saturday I have a 4 hour class for a "family wall hanging" which I scrapped and I am really looking forward to that! 23 days till my Mother in Law goes home!
Hmmmm here I am back again the very next day.. not sure if I will write everyday or not, not making any promises .. I will take this blogging thing one day at a time. Today's news - I have been on this special diet for 24 hours because of some blood tests I need done... so off I go early this morning only to be told that because one of the tests requires the blood to be put into a frozen tube that I can't get this done on Saturday because they don't deliver, so now I have to stay on this special diet until Monday morning when I will be going bright and early to get the tests done!! Why the girl didn't tell me this on Thursday when I went in to get my instructions for the tests is beyond me. okay I am over that!
This afternoon I ran a chipboard embellishing class which went really really well, the ladies made some awesome looking pieces (especially the ones with alcohol inks) and they were all very happy.. lots of fantastic positive feedback and a couple of them booked into my "Book of Days" class (see picture) which is happening in March.
Everyone asks me what my fav things are to use on my pages and books.. at the moment it is Bling, Ribbons (always) Alcohol Inks, rub-ons and lace... I can't wait to try the new grunge board from Tim Holtz, I saw a demo of it on his blog http://www.timholtz.com/ and it looks awesome!
Well I am off to have my sandwiches for dinner... hasta pronto (see you soon in Spanish!)
Hi to anyone who happens to drop by...To Blog or Not To Blog? this is my question.. I love to troll through other blogs and have been debating whether or not to do a blog myself for some time... well I guess I have made a decision! (does this thing have smiley faces?)
So where am I in life.. right now I am 44 years old, happily married to my lovely husband, I have four gorgeous children ranges in ages from 2 years (yeah my beautiful midlife surprise!) to 21 years who more often than not are my willing photographic subjects.. Two girls aged 21 (Laura) and 13 (Carly) and two boys aged 9 (Ryan) and 2 (Riley) - yes they all have the letter R in them and in all my scrapbooking supplies this is the letter most used!... I worked in accounting for many years.. but my passion is photography and scrapbooking... I am currently a scrapbook and card making teacher and am being considered for a product design team (they love my work just waiting for the call back).
As I get used to doing this blog thing I will post some pictures of my work...
And now that it is bedtime for Mister 2 I am going to go and make sure I am well prepared for my class tomorrow, in which I am teaching the many different ways of embellshing your chipboard pieces... I hope you tune in for more of my blog..
Posting the latest page I did yesterday of my 9 year old...it is one of my favourite photos of him...
