A special hello to all my recent international visitors. I hope you enjoy looking around my blog.
It's full steam ahead here at the moment & we are all constantly on the go. Can't wait for the school holidays to have a bit of rest time although with a 3.5 mth old puppy around the house I think that's one of the major reasons we seem to be always so busy & unrelaxed, not stressed out but just never resting!
Winter's kicked in the last few days too, the winds are just so cold & strong. Both Mackenzie & myself have had little battles with the flu too & thankfully we're at the other side of it although Mackenzie still barks like a dog at night.
I've done a little bit of scrapping since my last post & had my stall at the markets which didn't go particularly well as the overall attendance was very low, mostly the family's of kids who were performing dance & musical items on the day. So all in all it was pretty disappointing but what can I do. I'll be giving some other markets a go closer to Christmas.
I might also add too that we are very proud of Lily for her excellent school report for the 1st half of the year. She is travelling along very, very well & all in all a pleasure to teach which is just lovely to hear.
This little pillow box was made for to thank Lily's substitute teacher for all her hard work this term as she replaced Lily's usual teacher who was away on long service leave. We filled it with M&Ms minis & she loved it!
Both of these L/Os were made using the "French Twist" monthly challenge kit from 3AS, you could add ink & your own alphas I think from memory but everything else had could only be from the kit. Lots of fun & I think I also won a prize!
