Feeling greatful...

Thank you very much for all the well wishes, it’s soooo nice to know you care :) and even though I’m still not 100% I am feeling a lot better than a few days ago! And speaking of caring the lovely Tiffiny sent me this wonderful present to make me feel better – thank you so much my sweet sweet friend! My beautiful boys are still on school holidays and have done such a great job of looking after me – Christian has been helping out with housework and little Cameron made sure I got plenty of cuddles and has been leaving me little notes like these :)
Also a big thanks to Naomi because my first Scraptapestry kit arrived this week…. and you just know the kit is going to be fabulous when you open the box to find it wrapped like this!!
and trust me its like a paper crafter's heaven inside ;)
And last but not least thanks for stopping by, and I hope you are having a great weekend :)

When it rains it pours...

First up I want to say thanks to everyone who has been leaving me lovely comments or sending emails :) and I'm sorry if I have been a little slow getting back to you!

So last week I started feeling a little sick - ok it's not like I've never had the flu before, then a few days into it I got a ugly case of conjunctivitis which is only just starting to clear up - then this morning I woke up to a very sore and swollen mouth, and inspect it to find what looks like an ulcer and a lot of swelling & redness on my gums - and I'm not usually the type to feel sorry for myself.... but come on already!!! I am in pain, I am cranky, can barley eat, and basically feel like crap :(

So I don't really have any scrapping to show... because I haven't done any! Although I did manage to make this card - perhaps to cheer myself up ;) using this cute RW laser cut tree and some Bazzill. Thanks for the visit and hopfully the next time you stop by I will be all better and have something creative to share :)

April's Dare...

April's theme at Aussie Dares is LIFE - and as always the team have come up with some wonderfully inspiring ideas, so be sure to check them out!

For me life is only as good as we make it and even though we all lead such busy lives I always encourage my boys to take time each day to enjoy the little things - whether it's a field of fallen leaves, or listening to a favourite song.... fill each day with the good stuff :)

Remeber When, Mushrooms and more....

We've enjoyed a very full Easter weekend with our families and our boys have gathered enough chocolate to last for several months! and spent Easter Monday at the NSW Central Tablelands picking forest mushrooms and wild blackberries at the beautiful Oberon pine forests.
The mushrooms we look for are Saffron Milk Caps and this is how you find them - covered in fallen pine needles and forest debris. We ended up collecting several bucket fulls and cooked some up for our lunch. and all the kids love to pick the abundant blackberries straight from the bushes - which are delicious! it was a great day out.... until it started to rain and then the fog rolled in - but we will be back to do it again at the start of next Autumn :)

On the scrapping front I am very happy to announce that I have joined the Remember When team - and have completed my first page using one of their gorgeous RW Laser cuts. Also this month I have this page featured int he 'Autumn' gallery of the Scrapbooking Memoriesas well as this one in the current Scrapbook Creations 'Less is More' gallery

Other than that - I already have a build up of scrapping projects to get through so I'd better get a move on lol :0

Happy Easter...

Just wanted to take a minute to share the cute decoration I came up with this year. To make this I planted some cress seeds into a bowl of cotton wool, which one week later sprouted into this cute little mound and today I added some paper blossoms and a few fluffy chicks :)

We started our Easter celebrations this morning after the traditional Easter basket blessing at the Polish church - where the priest blesses baskets filled with symbolic traditional Easter foods with sprinkle of holy water and a prayer and although we aren't really that religious, it's something we enjoy every year. I hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend, however you celebrate the occasion.

April's One Little Aussie Word...

The word for April is NOW and this is what I came up withAlso be sure to check what the rest of the team has come up with and maybe give it a go yourself :)

Goodbye March....

Well it's been another busy month, and I thought I should share all the other things I've been working on - and I don't know about you but I'm loving swaps atm :) and have been taking part in the White with 1 colour swaps for the past few months. It all started with the red swap when I made these ladybug tags in return for all of these fab creations
then I made 15 fluffy tailed birdies for the black swap in exchange for all of theseNext was pink....
and then there was orange...and now we are up to naturals ranging from browns to creams and to me nothing is more natural then cute little trees - and I can't wait to see what I get back in return!!
Also on the weekend I found myself itching to do some scrapping and decided on the A2Z Scraplets sketch challenge and last but not least I have been painting -and finally finished my Klimt inspired forest for one of Gary Reef's Mixed Media Art challenges
and to keep in in true Klimt style I've included some gold leaf detailAnd with that I can say goodbye to March and get ready for all that this month will bring :) and will be back on Friday with a page for April's One Little Aussie Word.
