Oh What A Feeling

Whilst I have never had a car in my name, this is the second new car my husband has bought for me to get around in. Today we traded in the old faithful Falcon (which was older than Sarah) for a new Corolla. Strangely there are 4 white cars in our household now....

Indoor play

I have had a very busy weekend. The purple explosion card was for Megan's 21st on Friday night. With all of Melbourne's November rainfall coming on this weekend, today was a great day to craft away. The "Cupcake" card is for neice Ruby's 7th Birthday, the "play" card is for nephew David and the middle piece is for my sister. Half way through 2008 Kathryn (and 5 of her 6 kids) moved in with my (poor) Mum whilst they renovated their house. They all move back this weekend!!!

Ro's Necklace class

What a wonderful day we had today with a great bunch of ladies! Everyone finished their necklaces early and we got home before the rain. Thanks Ro for another fabulous class and to Steve for looking after our "inner" needs LOL.

If you ever get the chance to do one of Ro's classes you will not regret it. Ro is a wonderful talent, generous teacher and friend.

Ro's blog will have more pics up soon...

On again this weekend, the first under the new owner. 36 stands/exhibits at the Showgrounds. Luckily Gail and I went Friday as so many bargains sold out that morning! This is my stash- love the Graphic 45 papers, quality double sided to die for! You had to shop around because there was a big variation in prices between retailers. The Nestabilities were $30! The special jewellery pliars were $15, Jen put me on to them! It's great to catch up with so many familiar faces again, not that we could spent any time with Teresa, she was working flat out at Little Bits :(

ArtyOz Collaborative Book

It's all over for another year! There were only 16 participants this year, not as much pressure. These are my pages and the completed book we put together at Greta's house yesterday with the help of Gail, Sue, Georgia and Liz. There was no theme this year but we had to include stamped images. Thank you to Kerry for lending me Tim's "Umbrella Man" and to all of the other talented ladies who participated.

Collections Box Swap

This one was due in October and because I did JVO's classes in April I made my boxes early - and I am so glad I did! These were for Teresa. I think mine were the last to arrive but they did so safely last week, thanks Vanessa for hosting and making my boxes.

Doll Book

You may remember a book swap that began at the beginning of 2008. I chose Doll's as my theme and enjoyed it so much I finished the covers before forwarding off to the next artist. Well, my book was never returned! Someone must have loved it so much.....

But I am loved even more. Unbeknowns to me Gail, Greta, Donna, Ness, Teresa, Kylie and Debra did brand new, even better, pages for me and now it's up to me to make new covers. Thank you lovely ladies x x x.
