Monday 29 August 2011

Can't believe the month is nearly over.  Spring is certainly around in the garden with 23 daffodils waiting to be picked.  Camellias are out in full bloom and the winter roses are in full swing.  Unfortunately my garden will be coming to end as we have been placed in the "Red Zone".  I went around in the weekend looking at what plants I could save & put into bags or pots.  I am certainly taking all my roses and bulbs.  As for the lovely fruit & flowering trees they will probably have to stay.  Makes me sad as I love my garden.  Anyway we have created some new things so I thought it would be nice to share.

This is a journal my daughter made.  She has a thing for notebooks ...  in fact she has so many of them it is time for a throw out.

She also made this for her one day new bedroom.  After a visit to Spotlight (man that is a $$$ dangerous store to visit).

I did this about a month ago at a day class. I thoroughly enjoyed making it and was surprised how easy it was to do.  It is now sitting proudly on my bedroom wall. 

In the middle of making a memory booklet for my son which is something I'm been doing off & on so I do hope he appreciates it.  Its not big but will have some pic's of him & his friends & family.  Hopefully by the end of the week it will be completed so watch this space.

Thats all for now.  Have an enjoyable week and take care.

Been awhile since last posting on this and we thoroughly enjoyed the last dumping of snow on us and truthfully the kids are hoping for another one

Even the Snowy (pardon the pun) enjoyed the whole event and went absolutely crazy.  As for the cat she wasn't having a bar of it at all.   She is that little blob under the jungle gym.

We all made this rather square looking snow hut, fun to do but actually quite hard work, hot showers & hot chocolates afterwards.

For some reason I absolutely love this pic below.  It was a clear crisp morning & the temporary clothes line was struggling to stay up.

Wednesday 17th August 2011

Tried my hand at scrapbook page (haven't done one for ages so felt a little rusty & frustated as didn't have everything I wanted)  with pic's from July snowfall.  Ran out of glue so hopefully it doesn't look to misplaced.  I suspect a trip to Scrap it Simple is in order for me - yipee!!

So white and cold here at the moment.  Being stuck at home was a perfect opportunity to get some projects completed - well almost.


They are just sitting on the fridge at the moment.

Sitting on the underside of a decorated tin which isn't completely finished.

Top and inside of tin.  Going to be a birthday present for family member.  Hope she likes them.

Also after going through our collection of stamps I decided to do a couple of these as I just love hedgehogs ...

Really enjoyed doing these

Ok here it goes, quite nerve wracking being in the new world of cyber space. 

I thought I would share some pic's of the cards my daughter & I have been making after she went  to a class held at "Scrap-it-Simple" run by Hiliary in the school holidays.  We have become slightly addicted and are thoroughly enjoying it.
