Scraproom!

Just bought some awesome 3m hooks yesterday at the suggestion of the hubby to hang my thickers in the cupboard of our study. What a brillant idea it was as it saves space and has also helped me to realise what a ton of thickers I have and that it's time to STOP buying until I've used up some of them. The problem I've always had is that I feel I should save them and use them sparingly and now ..viola! I have so many of them that I can't wait to get rid of!

While I was at it, I decided to take some photos of my scarp area and post it up here for your viewing pleasure....Here goes....



The other small overhanging cupboard I have..

have a good holiday everyone!

Long post ahead!


Apologies for the lack of updates - H was away on reservist and I couldn't get him to take photos but we managed to get some photos tonight so here I am posting on a sunday night. I resolve to learn how to use his camera so I don't need to depend on him!

Ok, first up is a photo of me and little plum. She's adorable right? In her cool sunnies!


Now for some scrapping galore of the stuff I've been up to this hols. 2 'K's for a colleague and a good friend's baby shower. This one uses scenic route Garden Glove as the base paper and plenty of OA goodness for the embellishements.




2nd 'K' for Kyler..Windran's baby. Haven't got to see him yet as we missed the shower but we'll get it to him soon!






Supplies: Base paper - Cosmo Cricket's Girl Friday and OA paper for the Trees and apples. Animals and mushrooms are from Imagniasce. Lovely line they have here man!

Next on the list is something I wanted to do for a long time since I first saw cosmo's The Boyfriend line and these nice laundry lines really called out to me to craft something for my laundry area. I've not got a frame yet so it's still not on our laundry area but Wed I'll get a frame from Laines. Hope it is a hint to the SO to do the laundry for me!!



Last post of the day is from a class I did at Paper Market..really good promotion cos we had $35 off the class and only paid $33 for this awesome box. LOVE IT HEAPS!!






Thanks for looking! Have a good week everyone. Will be back soon with more posts, depending on what I'm inspired to do next. But I promise I'll get down to some crafting this week! God Bless!

Wed morning

I'm at home on a wed morning with all the other SAHM and people who don't need to work for a living! It still amazes me each time I go out on such a day and meet so many other people who really don't have to toil and have money to spend! I so wanna join the club!

The workmen are coming this afternoon to create a little havoc and unrest to my neighbours (SORRY!!) to do up our kitchen and study room. H and me managed to clean out the kitchen and the study last night to prepare for their arrival. We're not looking forward to the mess and incessant drilling but we figured that we'll be pleased with the end results so we decided to go ahead with it.

Will post photos of the new room and kitchen after it's done or better still, we'll get you over soon to see it in person!

Have a good day!
I'm loving my stay home days!

Natalie!

Made this over the past week for a good friend's new born baby. During one of our conversations, she mentioned that she really liked what Lia did for some of her projects and I thought it'll be nice to do something similar for her baby. She had a difficult pregnancy so I thought this would cheer her up!

H is really busy with work now and so i resorted to using my Casio camera to snap some shots to load the photos up since I'm so pleased that I've finished this project. Will find time to visit her next week..so Fern, if you're reading this, you'll get to see Natalie's present before I actually give it to you!! :)

The letter 'L' is favourite piece...H voted for it too. How about you?
