Sha wop bop a loo bop

the weekend’s here! I love weekends. Whilst no longer the pinnacle of sleeping-late-lazy-breakfast-reading-newspaper bliss it once was, there is nothing quite like waking to a small child beside the bed, flicking on the tv for some cartoons and all snuggling in for another half hour or so. I did attempt to hid under the covers once and pretend to be […]

Been scrappin’

During a recent beach escape, on a warm afternoon, I left two gently snoring boys in the care of their daddy, and made my escape to a favourite little craft shop. I planned to be good, honestly I did, but somehow, I still managed to waltz out the door $75 lighter.   My illicit haul included some very yummy scrapping […]

Holiday mini scrapbook

Yep, I’m slack. But I have been working like crazy, and unfortunately, with the amount of work I’ve had, something had to give. And despite wishing the housework would disappear, it didn’t. Leaving my creating and blogging being the only area I could really afford to cut back on.   But, before the proverbial hit the fan, we went on […]

Time out…

If you’ve been following me on Twitter, you may have noticed I’ve been lacking in the sleep department somewhat this week, thanks to a small boy who is teething. Which has impacted on my time to craft/sew/blog/anything except care for children & attempt to keep my head above water in the housework department. But yesterday, I’d had enough, and when […]

Yes, sir, I do have a note from my mother…

Well, not really, but, dearest blog, will you forgive me for being absent for far too long? Creatively, life has been pretty flat lately, not from lack of project, nor of mojo,  but with various goings-on conspiring to keep me out of my disgustingly-untidy studio. However, on Saturday, with the realisation that the next day was mothers day, and that my […]

Time flies…

…when you’re having fun! Friday has snuck up and caught me completely unawares this week. It only seems a day or two ago that I was pondering the potential of a new week, and here we are, week over, and with it, a chance to reflect on my plans, and a desire to do better next week. (Or maybe the […]

Santa knew it would be a long night…

…when he had only visited one timezone, and he already needed some balloons to help him back up the chimney! For last week’s Illustration Friday (and yes, i knew that it’s Thursday already!).   I’m actually thinking of making this one into a series, so keep an eye out for some more Christmas collages!

Illustration Friday – Opinion

A week late, but never mind! November seemed to be full of politics. The American election consumed the first half of the month, and the second seemed to be full of talk about the anniversary of the Australian Federal election. So when this topic lobbed into my inbox, the first thing that sprang to mind was the phrase, “opinion poll”. […]

Where’s the daddy?

A common question, particularly in the late afternoons, is “Where’s the daddy?” (I’m not sure why, but whenever he asks for someone, it’s “where’s the …”)   So when the question was combined with a plaintive look out the window, I snapped some pics, which lead to this layout that I did last week.
