The best news ever...

Yesterday was my birthday and I'm sad to say I am now 35 years old. I don't feel that old and I stand by the saying "you're as old as the man you feel" (I tweaked it a bit) and my man is only 29 so that makes me 29...I can only wish. As long as I age gracefully that's OK. I had a lovely morning tea with my neighbour and a couple of friends, then later in the day my Mum came to visit and stayed for the night...love that woman! I got some amazing diamond earrings from Rosendorffs from Matt that I love and a gold filigree heart pendant for my necklace from my Mum and Dad...very spoilt I must say! And of course I got chocolate...what more could a girl want? Well...one more thing, and this was the best gift of all. My brother, Dean, is now out of hospital and at home with his family. He had the transplant almost 3 weeks ago and now has to wait for the outcome which will take time but he no longer has to wait in hospital which is miraculous and awesome. He still has some discomfort but on the whole is improving and doing much better than expected. I cant tell you how good this is. So relieved.

Sharon Manning's off the page project is now complete and I have a sneak peak to show so here it is...


I've been preparing for my first kids class ever this week and I am overwhelmed with it in some respects. I agreed to hold the class for 12 kids from Newdegate which is celebrating 10 years for its Telecentre this month. I now have 27 kids attending the class and have frantically put together the projects and 29 kits. I hope I can pull it off. Could be my toughest crowd yet!
Kits for the retreat are also coming together. I also have Christmas papers, embellishments and stamps in stock for the silly season which is now less than 3 months away...shudder! Thanks for looking!
