New look!

I caved and got a busy background for my blog. Seems that I need to make a new header now too...

Not much happening here at the moment. I'm into Week 2 of my 4 weeks of annual leave. It's lovely, I really wish I didn't have to work. Unfortunately I like to spend money which means that I DO have to work. Oh well.

The great Stash Project is no more. I got a whole heap of new stuff and couldn't wait to use it all. I know, I'm hopeless. The intention was there though.

I have to share this pic. Jacob got new Footy Boots the other day. His first pair. He's so proud of them. I asked him to give me an action shot and this is what he came up with!

Stash project update...

6 down, 24 to go! And, it occurs to me that I had better hurry up and meet my target since I ordered some new papers a few days ago. When they arrive I will be chomping at the bit to use them!
Here are the six cards I made on Monday. Forgive the "same-ness", that's what you get when you are using up papers!

In other news, my Weight Watcher's journey is going very well! I have lost 9kg so far, and hope to crack the magical 10kg barrier this weekend. I feel fantastic, and have a renewed interest in clothes and fashion. I haven't had to buy too many new items, as I find that I am fitting back into heaps of clothes that I got too big to wear.
Thanks for stopping by today, I can't tell you how much it means to me!

Stash project.

My scrap pile is threatening to take over my scrap space. A few months ago I organised all my scraps into colour groups. This is as far as I got!
So, I am now challenging myself to make 30 cards (yes, that's 3 zero) from my scraps. NO cutting into whole sheets of patterned paper. I will need to use whole sheets of Bazzill cardstock from time to time, but that doesn't count.
Who wants to join me?


Yay! I am officially on holidays. I have 4 weeks annual leave from work. It feels good. I don't think I'll be doing anything too exciting. It's mainly all about not having to go to work.

I attended the RW Getaway last weekend. These Getaway's are soooo much fun. Days and days of uninterrupted cardmaking, being fed, drinking, laughing and just relaxing. I got 31 cards made at this last one. I don't know if that beats my record from the last one, I'll have to look back at old blog posts. It was so much fun. The next one is in June, and I don't know if I'll be able to attend. I'll have to do a lot of sucking up to Steve... I'll certainly go to the November one.

Here are a couple of cards that I made while I was away:

Lara had her 10th birthday party on Friday night. She's growing up so fast!

Wow... March????

I know, I know... I am a terrible, terrible blogger. I have had people nagging me left right and centre, but I just haven't been creating anything, which means that I haven't really had time to get to the blog. I promise things will be different from now on. I am going to the Very Special Kids Getaway this weekend, so I hope to have a massive load of cards to share with you soo
The kids are back at school now, and I am ever so proud of them. We had Parent-Teacher interviews a couple of weeks ago, and all 3 received glowing reviews
I have been attending Weight Watchers since January. I am pleased to report that I have lost over 8kg in 7 weeks. I feel awesome and am fitting into clothes 1-2 dress sizes lower. Woo Hoo. Watch this space, the total will increase in weeks to come
Here are a couple of cards I've made in the past weeks. My old computer died, along with many files that I hadn't backed up. I hope the IT nerds will be able to recover them for me, but we will see...
