As a follow on from Ro's brooch workshop Sylvia and I ended up at East Coast Imports (165 Nepean Highway Mentone) at the same time. They import lots of cheap stuff and are trying to clear stock before ending their lease. They have heaps of jewellery pieces at half of their already low prices. There are huge necklaces, ready for dismantling for our art, at crazy prices ($5 necklaces now $2.50) I spent a fortune and will now have to find the time to take them all apart ready to re-use! But that's what we do isn't it?!

Ro's Brooch class

I have been looking forward to this class for ages. Ro is such a talented artist, an expert in papercrafts and jewellery. A group of lovely ladies travelled to Belgrave South to be fed wonderfully by Steve, Ro's husband and trained in wire art to produce some wonderful pieces. I chose a blue coloured kit but added lots of other bits and pieces, mostly supplied by Ro. Wearing the creations will be the next challenge, being heavy and dangly.

I haven't done any RAK's for a while and my new Heidi Swapp mask needed a workout. These ATC's are for the Paper Journey group. I sent them ages ago and haven't heard anything.....there are only 7 in the RAK list which isn't too much trouble.

Gail dragged me to Teresa's on Friday night, it was good to catch up with friends.

On Saturday Dale brought home this HUGE pumpkin from a client. I had the help of lovely Sarah to get through it and we had soup all weekend. I still have a fridge full of pumpkin chunks as well as giving Kathryn a bag full and taking soup around to Jim!

Sarah's interest in cooking has me watching Masterchef and finally fulfilled my wish for stickydate pudding, butterscotch sauce and almond praline. Yummo!!!


I haven' t felt like blogging for ages but life goes on and cards have to be made.

Clockwise from the top is Liam's 21 st card, his Dad's 50th, Charlotte was 9, Pauls is 11 later this month and his mother, Theresa was born 25/5.
