Sweet Lyndsey Lou.....

Isn't she just adorable? This is Lyndsey, one of my closest friend, little baby girl. It is actually the first LO I have done, of her, and I am actually starting an album, just for her daddy. Not much else to report about this week, really, just been an ordinary week with nothing out of the ordinary happening. Hopefully this week week will bring something special. Only six weeks to go till I'm off to New Zealand, I'm really getting a bit excited you know.

Till then,

Silly me.....

So yesterday I spent some time doing the current dare at Aussie Dares site. Do you like it, yeah I was pretty happy, excited and the 6x12 format was much easier to do than I thought it would be. So anyway, went to have a look to see if anyones work had been posted yet, and I decided to re-read the intructuions for this dare. Finds from an op shop.... check, 6x12 format.......check, NO PATTERED PAPER!!!!.........ah shite I used pattered paper. I think this will teach me to slow down and really read things. How could I miss that, and it was in capitals as well, and I think maybe even underlined. Im soooo silly some times. Beside that major mess-up, I like it. I won't be sending it in though, seeing as I muffed up. I will have to make sure I read much more closley next time.


Sunday afternoon......

I have to say that I love nothing better than a lazy sunday afternoon on the couch with Lawley. Amazing sunlight streaming through the windows, the sound of football in he background lulling me to sleep. I was incredibly calm, happy and oh so content yesterday. Don't you wish everyday was like that?

I've been tagged again......

ooohhh, im a bit popular this weekend, how cool....

Here's the deal:

1-post these rules
2-each person tagged must post 8 random (... hopefully interesting) facts about themselves
3-tags should write a blogpost of these facts
4- at the end of the post 8 more bloggers are tagged and named
5-go to their blog and leave a comment telling them they're tagged

Here are my 8 random facts..

1. I have no sence of smell! nothing at all. I had a nose like a wolf when I was a child and around the age of 5 it just went on
holiday, and never came back.

2. I have lived in 27 houses in my short 30 years on this planet. My mother is a complete Gypsy.

3. I have never been out of Australia, but about to remedy this in about 8 weeks!

4. I have always worked in Male dominated work environments, and now work in a 100% Female dominated work
environment, and loving every minute of it.

5. The first job i applied for after finishing high school, was as a Vexalologist? Flag maker, pretty cool huh, sep I didn't get
the job.

6. My partner and I have been together as a couple for 10 years now. We have been freinds for 13 years.

7. My last name is not my birth name. My mother changed my last name by depole so I would have the same as my brother.

8. I have food issues. I hate fruit, just can't go there. And like I cant have say apple pie and custard in the same bowl, it's just wrong. If they are in different bowls I will eat seperatly, but can not put them together. I dont drink coffee at all, never have, oh once, but that decided it for me that I just can't like it. I only ever eat pinapple if it is on a pizza. I hate tomatoes, cucumber, zuchini, squash, you know any yucky vegi like that, but on the flip side, love like mushrooms, blue cheese, and caviar, so go figure.

Ok, I tag..... I don't think I know eight people........

1. Natalie
2. Kelsey
3. Vivian
4. Tania
5. Nichole
6. Kelly
7. Cath
8. Chelle

bad, bad blogger......

...and a totally bad scrapper too! haven't blogged in a while and also haven't scrapped in that long also. I have some really bad insomnia at the moment, and you would think that i would be getting lots of work done with all those many hours awake at night, but no, not getting anything done. i just seem to look at things, never eventually getting any actual work finished. i have a plan to break the insmnia, but have to wait till sunday night to put the plan into action.

im pretty excited about tonight, i am working at scraptivate, which i love, but then on top of that a group of ladies from the scrapbooking memories forum are coming along to the crop night. i have met a few of them, but it will be great to meet a few more.

i only woke up like and hour ago, and it's time to start getting ready for work already.

promise i will have a pic of new work next time i blog.
