Vintage White Swap

Another swap completed for Arty-Oz, using as the background, beautiful wallpaper supplied by the wonderful Greta. My wonderful Cuttlebug did the lattice and of course Collection Letters with another inspiring image from the internet.

Skinny Book Challenge

The skinny book challenges have started again for the year and to kick it off, the challenge was the letter "A" using a stripey background. Mine of course is the amazing actress Marilyn Munro, with my first use of stripey grungeboard painted.

Book of Words

I have finally completed my book of words, which I made the covers for late last year and only had to add the pages.

Morning Tea with Julian

Whilst in Newcastle I caught up with a very talented lady by the name of Julian whom I had morning tea with in a little bakery in Warners Bay near where she lives, which just happens to be near where my parent in laws live as well (its a very small world). I was extremely lucky as she gave me this wonderful piece of her art work, which I absolutely love, thanks again Julian if you read this. She also showed me some of her other work which if you go to her blog, you will be able to see here

Back From Newcastle

Some photo's from Christmas day the top one is all the nieces and nephews and of course sons there on the day, a few are missing all being interstate. The next one is Me, Hannah and Susanne my sisterinlaw. The last one is Stuart and Tristan before everyone arrived at Mark and Diannes home in Brandy Hill NSW for our Christmas dinner. It was a lovely day with the weather only in the 20's and the food all being wonderful with prawns to start and then all the traditional foods including pork with apple sauce and of course plum pudding.
