Kaiser Craft Desk Organiser

I was thinking of ordering this nice big white storage shelf and drawers on casters.  It is very cool and i want to use it for my Project Life Journal cards.  I have a good little stash now and really ant to be organised with it all.
But today I finished this project.  It is the super duper Kaiser Craft Desk Organiser.  It is very easy to put together and all works perfectly.  I have used wood glue to make it super tough and will lightly hammer two little nails in the back top and bottom on each side.
I bought it last week and wasn't sure how it would turn out or even if I would like my end product.   But I love it......I used the gorgeous  Amy Tan and Simple Storeies SN@P papers.  Suits perfectly for what I am using it for.  

And look how snug all my papers and journal cards fit in.

And guess what..... I am going to get my second one tomorrow so I can do one the same and sit them next to each other..... as I have a funny feeling my Project Life products will be increasing massively.
Thanks for stopping in

I have got my hands on this yummy Simple Stories SN@P collection.. it is funky brights with the quirkiest journal cards and sayings and words. Very cool.  I have got quite a bit as I plan to start Project Life January 2013.  I am putting together a Kaiser Craft Desk Organiser at the moment and using the SN@P range.  Pretty cool.  Go to the Simple Stories website and check out their goodness.  Ohh so good.
I have put together another PL page.  Just doing random pages til the new year project starts.

So here is my weekly routine now.. Project Life.. then layout... then some other crafty stuff... but I am loving what I am doing.. There is just never enough creative hours in my day.
I am pretty happy with this layout of Corey and I at Condalilla Falls near our place.  We had a gorgeous day the three of us.  So nice to get out of city life and be in the native bush.  The trees were magnificent and all had their own characters..

And for another Project Life page

That's all folks.. I have a friend coming over soon and we are putting together Kaiser Craft Desk Organisers.  I am loving mine so far.. but time will tell. Depends on how my building comes together. My Advent Calendar I put together 12 months ago was a bit... ummm sad on the erecting part I must say.  Lucky my DH fixed it for me.
Keep an eye out for my finished project.
Have a great week all my friends...

Happiness is GOOD FOR THE SOUL

Well the silly season is well and truly here.  I went into my local Plaza yesterday and I could not find a park for ages, the drivers were impatient, the queues were hideous, the shops are trashed...... and I honestly couldn't wait to get out of there.  When you work in retail every day you get to dislike retail... Actually... thats not it... its not the retail you get to dislike.... it's being around impatient, rude people. And I must say I hate being in a crowded shop or shopping centre at the moment.  Its way to busy for my mind to cope with on my relaxed days off.

I was going to start my Christmas shopping but got put off, grabbed a coffee and sat down instead.  So yeah.. I still have to face it ... but I have decided I will take my son shopping on Saturday as I have the day off and he is keen as mustard to do some Christmas shopping.  So we will have a nice day together.
I got a few little treats for my scrapping room as I am having a bit of a change, nothing too much, but just a few little pretties to add to it.
Tomorrow I have the day off and I am looking forward to going training and then I may go to the beach and watch the waves smash down.  I have nothing on so my day is free and I love it that way.

Just finished this last night.  I love Project Life.  So much fun.  I cropped and printed this photo out in 8x10 but selected NO CROP so the photo is nice and long.  Perfect for this 6 x 12 pocket.
I had my first attempt at getting my journalling correct on and printing it out.  I did it in word and it was super easy so now that I have nailed that Im a happy camper.
I am just about finished another one but I was working on my Kaiser Craft Desk Organiser tonight. I had a friend over tonight who was doing the same as me.  It was a bit of fun. She was speedy and way in front of my.  I do like to procrastinate a bit.  Sooo many papers, sooo many choices..  But I am half way there.. 

And a closer look

Well that is it for me tonight.  I get to share my exciting news very soon with you all.  I have been chosen to join a delightful bunch of ladies (all from overseas) on a Design Team.  I think the 1st December is when I can share the news.  I was emailed and asked if I would be interested so that was a pretty exciting invite for me.  Im sure I will have fun along the way.
That's it for tonight. Need my beauty sleep.
Take care all my friends

Scrap the Girls

I have had a fantastic two days off work this weekend.. I have been chilling out with my DH and DS.  We didnt have nippers this morning due to rain so I had another sleep in.  DH was cold at 9am and jumped back into bed for Sunday morning cuddles.. then did Corey.  We all got out at 10.30.  Love these kind of mornings.  We then headed out and went to the beach for lunch down at Caloundra, then went house looking.. just looking.. LOL
I need to sort through some photos to do some more Project Life pages.  So I thought I would have a go at a challenge.  I always love the challenges over at Scrap the Girls and Scrap the Boys.  Thought the criteria was pretty cool tonight at Scrap the Girls so here is my take on the challenge.
It was to use the colours 

The spotty paper in my layout is actually orange.. Just comes up a bit red in the photo.

That's it for me tonight.. Had fun with my friends Friday night at Daisys.. Love going there.
Have a great week everyone.. Im off to bed as it is just about midnight.. Thats when I turn into a pumpkin.

Love to you all

Project Life - Fingal Bay

Just thought I would add my third Project Life page in tonight..  I am loving this Project Life journey and it hasnt even begun really.  Just having a dabble with it until 1 January 2013
There are some of the fun photos we took while at Fingal Bay in the school holidays.  We had a blast there and my gorgeous girl Tex come and stayed with us too.  Lots of fun and relaxing.
I have got quite a bit of a stash for PL now.  I have cut up a lot and stashed them nicely away.  I have bought a few Heidi Swapp stamps, Studio Calico and Hero Arts Stamps.  They are all sooo cool.  It has become to be a bit of a nice yummy addiction... cough cough.. (another one)

And below here I have used the lovely Ruby Rock-it Eklectique range.  Very vintage and feminine for my two beautiful girls.  Love these girls to bits.  I have cut out the gorgeous clock and lightly painted it with Windsor & Newton Iridescent Medium which you cannot see on the layout on here but it gives it a beautiful shimmer finish, and I have also used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in the Gold on the background of the layout. Once again you are flat out seeing it online here but is beautiful in real life.  I have used a Delish brad, Scrapmatts Dress form, Ruby Rock-it trimmings, Ruby Rock-it pearls.
So nice to know that these girls will be friends for life.  My DD on the left with the dark hair and Bonnie is the other mad blonde.. These girls are nuts together.

That's all from me tonight.  I have a Craft Demo that I am preparing for tomorrow at work 4-8pm at Spotlight.  I have done up some beautiful Christmas cards, a Kaiser Craft Wooden MERRY CHRISTMAS, and I am currently scrapping a clear plastic bauble to hang on the Christmas tree.  Scrapping one side of the template on the inside and the other side is where I put the photo.  They are simply beautiful to hang on your tree.

So I best be off.  I hope you are all having a great week and gettting prepared for Christmas unlike myself.  My DD has informed me all our presents will be in the mail this week.  She is soo good to be so organised and all ready.  Good on her.. She has nothing else to do or organise now except for the day itself.  I wish I could see her.  I miss her.  
Goodnight my friends.

Project Life fun

Well I have had a huge couple of weeks again.. Work Work and work.  I do enjoy my job but sometimes its so hard keeping up with everything.  Luckily I have a great husband to come home to and the hugging arms of my son.  After dinner we all have our special time together as my hubby goes to be early with DS and I stay up til I turn into a pumpkin at midnight every night doing what I love most..  I love my creative time. Some nights Im so tempted to just plonk myself in my amazingly comfy bed but then I lay awake with my eyes wide open creating in my head what I could be doing while laying there being lazy lol.
Im really enjoying the PL stuff at the moment.. Love how you can do more journaling on the page.  I spose you can on a layout too but it just seems to be a great way to add lots of journalling in the little pockets that we have on the page protectors.  I am loving using lots of my paper I would not just pick up for a layout.. Awsome stuff.
This is our son Corey at his second ever game of Cricket.  He is loving it so much.  And he has been Captain twice ... and Man of the Match once.  He is going to be the best batter.  He has such a strong whack.  I am pretty proud of him.  He is also pretty impressed with his gear that he has got.  The whites, hat, knee pads etc.  Feels pretty well a part of the team.
I love this boy.  Just in the 4 minutes I have been writing this he has said out load to me... Love you Mum.... I just love that.
Anyway that is all from me for tonight.. I do have another page I will post but need to take a better photo of it.  The photos are to as clear with the work in the page protectors.  Always a glare.
Night night all.. Happy scrapping x
