Tim Holtz Stamps Arrived

I have been waiting .. no not quite the right word hanging out for my stamps to arrive from stampers anonymous and a courier arrived with them at my door today what a fantastic early christmas pressie the only draw back its chrissy eve and i cant play for at least another few days heres a pic of what i ordered

A Dressed Table????

My friends that dropped by yesterday thought I was mad setting up my table for Xmas Eve on the 23rd... I had to race back to spotlight on the 23rd as the table cloth I bought was centermeters to short on each end of the table ... I wanted to set it up early so if there was anything i needed i did not have to race around the shops on the Eve of Christmas .. Plus i get longer to admire all the effort I put in before everyone destroys it all.... as it was i also went to the shop to buy new glasses so they all matched new santas i thought they would make a great little embellishment on the table. I cant wait to see all my families faces when they see the table this year i think my scrapbooking is extending into all diff areas of my life, hence how nicely the table is done this year. I have to say I have gone all out cheers everyone enjoy your day. PS My hubby got me the white candle i then decorated them and he was suprised how nice i made them... a bit more faith please.. If you have photos of your table for chrissy and dont mind sharing ideas email me some pics I'd love to see your tables


Yay The Big Fella comes tonight.... here are a couple of our chrissy pics I hope Santa brings everyone what they hoped for... I wish All my Friends and Family a very Merry Christmas.

Instead of Chrissy Cards for the Kids at Skool

Does all the craft mess in the first photo look interesting? I made one of these at my LSS on Friday night at thier Christmas Party... I came up with the idea that these would be great instead of christmas cards... 90 packs later time consuming YES, will I make these next year yep they have lollies inside of them and all the kids in Chanels pre primary loved them, even her teacher asked me for the template which is really really simple. I have even had my Mum and kids help me make them. Thanks mum for all your help nothing like pulling together.

Photography Excursion

These are some of the shots I took of the Mandurah Mariner with my photography class. We learned so much more out on the field.. It was all done between 7 and 9pm... having 5 kids this time of evening and being around like minded people was heaven.. Im off to do some editing in GIMP (the shot of the pillar i have already edited to the best of my ability at present LOL) which takes me hours at the moment...have a great week
