Nippers & cards....

...........that's what we've been up to.

Seeing as we are living near the beach now, we thought it would be a great idea for Lily to join Nippers at the local SLSC so she can learn some beach awareness & survival skills. Great for a bit of fun & fitness too. The kids all seemed to be having a great time & poor Lily ended up with sore muscles in her legs from all the running in the sand after the first week. She's pulled up fine after this weekend so it just goes to show how adaptable & resilient kids' bodies are! Gone for now are our Sunday morning sleep ins but with the weather the way it has been the last 2 Sundays, no complaints from here! Even got in the surf myself & had a bit of a boogie board. I'm really settling into this whole beach lifestyle now, can't imagine ever going back to live in Sydney (not even the Blue Mountains) & anyone who really knows me knows that's a huge call for me to make.

I've spent a fair bit of time using my Stampin' Up! stuff to make lots of cards too lately, some of which I donated to my friend, Sonja, who generously hosted a fundraising "Girls Night In" at her place on Saturday night. All the proceeds of the night are going to the Cancer Council to help in the fight against womens' cancers.

Also been making cards to sell at some of our local markets in the lead up to Christmas. It's going to bit of a joint venture with a friend from school who has lots of wonderful handmade wares to sell. It'll be great to have company for the both of us as neither of us has done this kind of thing before. Looking forward to the challenge & hope to make some sales & maybe even make some workshop bookings, that'd be really neat!
