Christmas gifts....

These are some notebooks that I have decorated with my Stampin'Up products.

I have used the "Simple Said" and "Dots & Daisies" stamp sets. I'm giving these as gifts to family members.

Nearly the end of 2006.....

Wow, hasn't this year gone ever so fast. It's been a great year; we've had lots of great times with our three boys. So many things to be thankful for. The new year will bring lots of changes for us. Four more weeks and we move to Busselton. But first we will enjoy a family holiday which we all cannot wait for. One more week and we leave for Port Gregory. A beautiful spot up north, about six hours from Perth. So this next week is going to be very busy and frantic; trying to be organised. I'm still hoping to take a family photo before the week is out and upload to here. Hopefully that will happen. After that I will be away from here for a while, busy packing and getting ready for the big move. So until then, we all wish you a wonderful Christmas time and God's blessings for 2007.

Next year, when I'm set up, I hope to upload my Stampin'Up cards and idea's more frequently. And of course continue to update you all with photo's and what's happening in our family.

Hot summer days

Yesterday and today, the weather has been really hot, up to 38 degrees. So we are all trying to stay cool. The boys have been having some fun under the sprinkler. I had some fun taking pictures of them being silly and cute.

Some pictures...

The boys enjoyed swimming in the river and taking
turns to drive Uncle Craig's boat.

Kyle with his cousin Adam. They are very good
friends and always have a great time together.

My younger sister Aimee and me


Just been reading a friends blog and this has prompted me to write something from my heart. It's not often enough that we sit back and look at the big picture; to acknowlege how truly blessed we are in this life. We have just had a busy but wonderful weekend with lots of family activities. My baby sister just graduated from Year 12 and she has done her famiy proud with her fantastic acheivements. On Saturday, we had a nice family outing, boating on the Swan River, with my parents and Craig and Renae and the kiddies. It was really nice to be able to enjoy each others company as well as God's wonderful creation around us. On Sunday, my cousin, along with many other young people, did their Confession of Faith, which we were able to witness. Each and every moment in our lives are special and so we should cherish them and give thanks for the freedom we have. It's good to step back from the busyness of life, to share special times with your families and children who are so very precious.

I will share some pictures from the weekend soon!! lol:)

Boys having fun ...

From warm sunny days to cooler rainy weather. We are finally getting a little bit of rain with the hope of some more. When the boys saw the puddles, they put on their boots and ran outside to go and play in the muddy water with their trucks. They had lots of fun as you can see, getting very wet and dirty ....... and more washing for mum.

Adventure World

Today we took the boys to Adventure World. For those that don't know, it's a fun park, a real fun place with lots of different rides and water slides - great place for the family. We went with Leon & Julie and their girls and we all had such a good time. The boys loved the Kids Cove the best with its very own pool and kiddie slide. Since the weather was quite warm, they spent most of their time keeping cool. Here are some pictures of happy faces enjoying the day.

Hello again, I had my first workshop last night and it was very sucessful. It was good to stand up to the challenge of a 'hands on' workshop. Had a few nerves but it all went well. Everyone loved the cards, so I thought I would share some of them with you!!

Both cards have been made with Stamp sets from the Mini Catalogue. The first one being, On the Spot and Sweet Spot using Ruby Red and Choclate Chip colours. The second one, Looks like Spring with the co-ordinating punch in Barely Banana, Close to Cocoa, Brocade Blue and Old Olive colours. I used some ribbon and some of the Hodgepodge Hardware to embellish.

New blog

Hello, I'm here and my blog is up and running. I had been thinking about doing this for a while now and was just reading a friends blog and that finally convinced me. I've just become a Stampin'Up demonstrator so thought it could be a good place for me to post some of my creations. This will also be a place I can share my thoughts and special moments. And I soon hope to upload some photo's of my three beautiful boys
