scattered bits and pieces


So this post is just a bit of random rambling.
  • WOWOWOW I'm so surprised by the enormous showing of support I've had for the giveaway!! I'm so excited ;)  I've added to the pot and it's currently sitting at about 6 stamp sets... I might even do an extra random giveaway too :)

First of all, I want to post THIS picture

it's the ENORMOUS giveaway over at the gorgeous Wee Memories blog (run by the fabulous Jenny :))
I want to live inside that pile of crafty goodness. (If you're nice to me, I might let you join me :)

ANYWAY, this is my little entry for the giveaway PICK ME PICK ME *waves hand in air*

  • I've been playing with some new product the last few days-- Some Metallic Rub-ons I got a little while back and Twinkling H2O's...I'm in LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE!! I'll post the projects that they  turn out to be...
I'm TRYING to get around to starting my Ali Edwards December Daily album...but I just never get there...maybe when I'm finished my week-long Christmas Cards to Inspire posts over at the a2z blog. If you haven't checked it out, please do.  I'm showing a few new and a few not so new ways to use Distress Ink etc etc.

My kids have been fabulous this past week, but I'm so tired!! I hate being tired when you're generally having a good week--no fair!

We're in the middle of trying to get a home loan, I found the perfect house for us in Melbourne (we're moving there soon), so I'm praying that it will all work out.  We had originally thought we'd be heading over to the USA (HOW EXCITING WOULD THAT HAVE BEEN?!) but it's sooooooooo expensive and difficult to get VISA's etc etc, so maybe in a few years. It's still definitely in my plans.
So anyway, if you can all join me in praying that the banks play nicely with us and let us buy the house we want :) that would be great--any deity you believe in, I don't mind who :) we could use all the good luck we can get!

I'm VERY impatiently waiting for my latest order from a2z to arrive so I can start playing and show you my new creations.

I've had problems with my printer, so it had to be shipped off to the store to get fixed, bbut of COURSE, nothing went wrong with it while it was in the store, so we had to wait a week to find that out, then go pick it up GAH--THE ANNOYANCE!!

I MUST send you over to my friends new blog Simonetta Creations --she's only kinda new to craft and this blog is very new (and I"M the one who told her to get a blog going!! *proud*) but she's CUH-RAAAZY talented... I want to make layouts just like hers :) kisses to you girl xx

Anyway, that's about it for me. 

Talk to you all soon--don't forget the giveaway closes soon so get your friends to follow me!!

Lots of love
