I did a little retail therapy with my little sister today and helped her spend her dosh on some stamps, chipboard, paper and ribbon - might just have to print out more photos of her kids so that she has a reason to use them straight away and we can go scrap shopping again. We have also been doing a little bit of scrapping together - while here i set her up to make a coaster album of the new babe and she is doing a mighty fine job of it too - i will have to take photos of it when she is finished and upload. I have also been playing aunty to the new babe in the family-- he's too cute.
I have been thinking of rearranging the scrap room yet again - gotta love hormones for the sudden burst of moving the furniture around and the powerclean syndrome.... I am thinking of the best type of wall mounted shelves to purchase to go in there so i can start displaying the things that i make - bit of a bummer to make stuff and just hide it away - i'm liking the ikea type ones at the moment -- but might have to do a bit more investigating into it.
The peeps will be working on their little mini albums tommorow so I have to get all their stuff organised so they can get stuck into it should be an interesting arvo after the homework and afternoon tea.
I have my sister visiting again tommorow for a scrap play date - i will have to take the phone off the hook i think, when she visited the other day all i seemed to be doing was answering calls - geesh makes me feel & look important - lol - she did not mind cause she had a little play with the Canon - hence the photo of me connected to the phone and then she got the use of the the scrap desk, which by the way is a bit of a shambles because i decided in my infinite wisdom to make an accordian album to post off to the inlaws while on their travels around Oz - so hopefully they will get it tommorow - I hope you like the updated photos of the family and that you are having a blast on your hols - that new camera is awesome - you should really get one too. Hello to our other friends R & S who are travelling around this fabulous country - We hope you are enjoying your travels and have met lots of wonderful people also.
I am hoping to do a couple of layouts tommorow- no truly - i will get them done -- look if i say i will i will -- lol-- maybe i should just say come back for a looksie tommorow at the layouts - a load of washing or two and possibly a little ironing to go with that - so DH if you are reading this know that my intentions are good -- the day may not go as i had planned - the craft room may need more work than i had anticipated and just closing the door on it may not fix the problem as the amount of stuff in there could tend to leach out the doorway and into other parts of the home -- sort of like the fabric problem that started over 15 years ago- yes my fabric problem started years and years ago - i have fabric that i made my little sister a shirt from when she was 10 years old --yep smells old too -- i think thats when you know u need to have a clean out -- or just use it.
Hopefully i will have time to upload pics of some sort of creation tommorow - who knows it might be the pages i so desperately want to get done or i could change my mind and make a mini album instead or just work on 1 of the four circle journals that have arrived this week ---here's a page i did in a cj a couple of weeks ago...
