Great Friend

Some hearts ….

Hi again! Firstly … yes … I was VERY self disciplined and DID do my cleaning before anything else yesterday! I am one of those nazi mums on cleaning day, though! I like to think it will stay clean at least for one day! (Sadly, often it doesn’t! … unless everyone is out for the…

For the Boys!

Hi bloggies! While I was sourcing stuff for the wedding … I found a site that had Sizzix alphabet die sets on sale for $15 each! Needless to say … I couldn’t resist! The postage was a bit of a killer … but still a bargain … so my self discipline flew out the window…

BBQ Fixins

Hello bloggies! Well … being stranded at home today (my car has gone in for a service) … meant I stamped a little without feeling guilty. I have been a little slow … though … because I am such a novice with my pencils! I am quite satisfied with this attempt … although … I…
