I'm Hooked :-)

Well it has been so long since I have blogged.  I have a new iMac and having the time to learn to do all what I am so used to doing on my laptop... well it takes time.  So I have really been avoiding blogging and posting stuff up elsewhere except FB of course... as I  have worked that out to be easy.
I have been working lots since I started and I am loving my job like you wouldn't believe.  I feel so so blessed to be working amongst my passion and lovely people.  There are some great girls there which makes the day enjoyable.
We had 2 weeks at the beach in our caravan.  I promised myself that by the end of the two weeks I would be able to crochet a square.... I spent 10 nights and at least 2 hours a night which included a few throws of the crochet hook... blood, sweat and tears.. and not to mention a few indecent words thrown in there at myself.. but LOOK... I got there... hehehehhehehehehe
I am pretty happy with myself as I have always wanted to learn how to crochet and it has been one of my goals for the past 12 months to learn to do. These are the colours of the blanket I am doing for Corey and Daddy.... I will back it with a blending colour.  My hubby can't believe it has taken me 2 weeks to do this... I smashed him ( giggle)
So the race is on... to get this finished as I have two other requests to make Granny Square Blankets.  By the time I am ready to make mine.. I will hopefully know all the right stitches and patterns to make a really unique one for myself.

If you are wanting to give it a go.... this is the most amazing beautiful book you should buy.  We sell them at Spotlight.  I will be a very happy old lady I am thinking with all the craft I love to do.

Few and far between

My scrapping room has now become the CRAFT room.  I have my overlocker, sewing machine, paints, quilts, basket of wool plus my scrapping in here now and I am ever so overwhelmed with it all.  No wonder I can't sleep at night time.  I have been trying to get 9 large cushion covers made to put on my day bed, along with a few requests for baby quilts too.  So as much as I love my scrapping, Im not finding that I have as much time to do it as I want.  But I was in my element for the last two nights putting one together.  This is what I did.  I have used Crate Paper - Random Collections, Rima Annalee Collectiion, Prima Alphabet stickers which are really cool.  They feel like canvas.  And my gorgeous cluster is thanks to my2angels.  I have used lots of Tracys wee stash of flowers and a chipboard flourish which I have inked up using Silver ink.  Of course a Martha Stewart punch... my ever so favourite punches.  The cute as bird up on the top left hand side is front the House of Three paper.
Here is a close up of the journalling which I so believe in.  My life is not what I thought it would be 14 years ago.  I have been through so much, moved 8 times in the past 10 years, made a mile of friends through scrapbooking, got my second child after 12 years of being incapable of falling pregnant..... so yep, you just have to go with life and take what it hands out.

Love to all you girls out there who read my blog.  I wish I knew who you all were as I would love to meet sooo many of you.
Take care and Happy New Year to us all

Honorable Mentions Masters 2011

This is my second year at giving the Scrapbooking Memories Masters a go.
I did not manage to become a Master but the girls who did certainly had full on amazing work.  You never know what the judges are looking for as the work and styles they chose are so far from different from each other.  There is such a wide variety of work that is submitted each year and I love looking in detail at what each one of the girls submit.
This is the layout that I got honourable mentions for.  The criteria on this layout was we had to use some memoribilia of some sort that means a lot to us.  I used this photo.  I only have two of my sister and I when we were little wee ones and these are two that were taken by a studio photographer way back 20 or so years ago.. LOL  Mum said to me I just laughed and laughed at the photographer.  Would have been fun to see a video of that time.
Anyway here it is.  I was pretty happy with the end result.  
It's a pretty special layout to me and I have put it on a 12 x 12 canvas for my wall.
Well done to all the winners and I am looking forward to the next round later this year.
Luv to all of you.

Card Making

I have used the 6x6 Kaiser Craft Vintage Timeless paper pad to make some of these cards.  The other paper I used was Echo Parks Times & Seasons.  Love the vintage feel of all of these papers.  It was a gift to someone who has everything.

I have not really had the time to scrap lately and it is really getting to me.  I love my scrapping and I love creating pages... but I have so many other projects sitting in my scrapping room looking at me with a smile on their dial so I have been doing some sewing and trying to learn how to crochet a granny square blanket. I have all the wool and it is pretty exciting.  Cant wait to get going with it.
Thats all for now.... off to the beach I think and grab a coffee on the way.
