It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Hi there. I finally got around to taking some official photos of Christmas 2011 and here's a couple. I love this time of year as crazy as it is! I just love getting ready for Christmas and decorating, wrapping, dressing up and celebrating.

There are always things we wish could be better in the future but lets also reflect on good things that have happened as well. I have my health and my kids, a husband and my Mum, Dad and brother so I am extremely grateful. I am also grateful to live in such a fortunate country - Australia. I love my job, my town and my much to be thankful for. I hope you have loads to be thankful for too. Enjoy the Christmas break and your families - they are more valuable than gold.

I sincerely wish you all a very Happy Christmas

& a safe and memorable 2012

Back soon!

New Releases from Dusty Attic...

Hi there! Just thought you might like to know I have the new releases from Dusty Attic in store now....they are gorgeous! You can see them here and you can order them through mwah! I am especially looking forward to using the new Christmas tree and titles for my Christmassy layouts.

I've been busy in the shop creating framed layouts for people for Christmas gifts and also doing some off the page projects with kids - also for Christmas gifts. I have been making cards as well and my favourite is this Diorama style card. Easy to make and really cute. If you would like the instructions let me know...

I have also begun a December Daily album which is a concept Ali Edwards came up with about taking photos everyday in December and documenting them in a mini album. I have managed to keep up with photos but havent kept up with the pages so far but I am not worried as I will finish it in January. I don't know how the thousands of other women doing the December Daily project find time to keep their albums up to date in December as life is just so busy! I am pleased to be giving it a go at least. I will show pics soon on the progress.

I am hoping to blog often this week to show all the projects I have been doing so here's hoping I can! That's all for now.

Its a pink one!

Hi there folks. At the October retreat I promised an update on Amy's progress with her status on becoming a Mum and (although its late!) I am pleased to announce Amy and Garth had a healthy, beautiful baby girl - Saskia Morgan - at 3:17pm on Thursday the 10th November weighing 3.055kg. Both are doing really well now and Amy is a very chilled out good Mum. Its so nice to see them have a bundle of joy an what has been a tough year. Good on you Amz...your awesome!
