The Hyden retreat was a huge success with 60 ladies attending. We had amazing tutors who wowed us with their creativity, great company - girls from all over, great food (important) and even nice weather - its amazing the difference this can make. I am so pleased with how it all went and appreciate the feedback I have received, both good and the constructive suggestions. I try hard every retreat to make improvements and make each one different to keep it interesting. We raised $1164 for breast cancer research which was an added bonus. Well done girls for your generosity and congratulations to those who won prizes - well earnt!
I also had a successful mini retreat in Denmark last weekend (17th - 19th November) at The Cove chalets. There were 14 of us who had a relaxing, creative weekend in the tranquil forest surroundings....just beautiful. I was quite unwell over the weekend but the girls were so gracious and enjoyed there time none-the-less. I have some layouts to share from the retreat but firstly I am pleased to announce the next retreat for the Albany region is on the 17th - 19th February 2012 at the Emu Beach Holiday Park in Albany. There are limited places so be quick to put your name down. You may register as soon as you like but registrations officially open early January 2012.
That's all for today...there is heaps more to share but gotta get some creating done...Bye for now.

One of the reasons I've been so busy is that in my bid to get ready early for Christmas, I have been making Advent calendars and teaching classes on how to make them. They have been such a huge success I am now being commissioned to make some to sell...lots of work but very exciting seeing each one evolve and finish up looking different from the rest. I love these babies and I think I could just about make them in my sleep. The raw calendar comes from my fav WA manufacturer Jen @ Dusty Attic. Then you choose a centre scene and decorate. Here is a pic of my first one...
If you would like one let me know!

I don't know about you but every year Christmas comes around long before I am ready for it and I don't get into the Christmas spirit or have all the frills I would like to lead up to the holidays. Well this year I am trying to be organised much earlier than usual so i am making an advent calender months in advance so once its finished I can fill the drawers with goodies for my kidlets. I am also going to attempt making bulk Christmas cards and perhaps even start on making some presents for loved ones. I'll keep you posted on my progress once I have achieved some. I always look at blogs leading up to Christmas where paper craft artists are preparing mini albums in advance for the 25 days leading up to Christmas and I think - "how do they find the time to do this?" Each year seems to get crazier as the kids get older and there are so many school commitments, end of year functions and then swimming lessons for the last 2 weeks before Christmas to top it off! Who has time for Christmas shopping?! Well (I'm a little slow sometimes) I figured out that some must start back here in September or even earlier! In fact, my sister-in-law does all her Christmas shopping in September so there is no pressure thinking about all that while she is harvesting right up to Christmas Eve....smart girl!
Bye for now...thanks for looking!

It's a vintage layout using a black and white photo (or sepia) but would also suit more recent photos as well. More to come...

A little while back I did these 2 layouts of the kids with a Monarch butterfly that they found. The large butterfly on Phoebe's layout is handmade by a lady I met who makes them out of acetate and decorates them with glitter and bling so I just had to have some for my shop.

And finally a new Black, white and cream range by Teresa Collins. These papers are lovely and very versatile.
I mostly have packs in at the moment for a lot of ranges as they are very affordable and handy for anyone who likes to buy coordinated papers to take the rocket science out of choosing things that match!
I have been scrapbooking quite a bit and have loads of layouts to show that I need to photograph so bare with me and I will get to it soon.
I have some kits for a great boys layout using Crate Paper Toy Box range complete with instructions for anyone who needs some inspiration to get them kick started...here is the layout...
That's all for today...be back soon...
