I have been trying to upload pics for over 24hours and blogger is not playing nice.
Not happy!

Monday, 30 July 2007


Having a major drama with Holden as they are not going to honour the warranty we have on the Cruze. I am so angry. So I won't dwell on it here...

Been scrapping a bit. I used my Bind It All for the first time. Made this little notebook for my baby girl. I am a bit spewing that I used my last hambly overlay. I really need more of it. In every color. Every style. Can't wait to get some of the new Hambly. Totally to die for.
My other 2 layouts I have used some of my Poppy Ink Kit. I think it's about time to use up the stuff i am "saving". I mean, what am I saving it for anyway?
Does anyone else do that? Or am I the only weirdo?

I went to the Scrapyard on Sunday to get a few things - and saw this amazing clock canvas that Sandra has done. It is so cool. She is running the class at the end of August. I am SO THERE!!
I can already see it hanging in my loungeroom on the bare wall. I can't wait!!

Blogger is being a bugger and won't let me upload any pics. So I'll be back later and try again.

See ya,

My car

How pretty is it?

I am in love!

Lookie what I did..

I painted my nails. This is my favourite shade of OPI in the whole world. It's called La Boheme.
I love to wear nail polish sometimes. Makes me feel girly. Which is good considering I am not much of a girly girl!!

Forgot this page

This one was after the back to school one. I didn't even see it.
The top pic is the card I made Bellas B'day. The colours are completely off. Bad light. Or too much. Don't know.
Yesterday I went to have my eyebrows waxed. (they looked like caterpillars) Then I came home and walked in. Hubby burst out laughing. I said "what?". He said "look in the mirror". So I did. Oh My God
One was overly thin. The other was very thick. How could somebody let me pay for that and then walk out in public. I had no idea it looked like that. How embaressing.
So I called them back to tell them and ask if they could fix it.
Now I have 2 overly thin misshapen eyebrows.
What I have learnt: If the person waxing you does not show you a mirror with the light on - it's probably bad news!!

We spent the day at my mums today.

See, I can do that now - coz I have a car!

Still totally in love with it.

Am also loving all the products coming out at CHA. Definately want all the Doodlebug glitter chipboard letters and their bottles of sugar coated glitter. Yummo!

And how cool is the Daisy D's rub on tape roller thing.

Better start saving now!!

This morning we were moving some boxes to the office.

So I loaded up my boot, and was just backing out of the driveway, when hubby yells out to me to take one of the big bottles of water for the water cooler as well. I had no room so I had to put it in the back seat. So I pull out of the driveway and start driving down the hill. I turn the corner and I hear...CRACK!! Obviously not a good noise.

When I finally pulled up at the office I opened the back door and expected to see a cracked water bottle. Nope bottle is fine. So I pull the bottle out and go to close the door - and what do I see?

The water bottle had hit the door and cracked the speaker cover. Not a little crack. Oh no. A giant crack. Not happy! Felt so bad. Not even 24 hours and it's already damaged!

Cakey had to go to school today (yes it's Saturday) for a choir workshop. They are performing up in Brisbane next week.

And then we all went to see Transformers. Really good movie. It didn't finish until 6:15pm so I had to come home and cook my roast beef. That will be lunch tomorrow!

Zina swapped me her Bind it all today as I wanted Pink and she didn't. Thanks Zina! What a sweetheart! So now I've got a pretty pink one. Yay. I may get some use out of it this week.

Till next time...

I'm not a happy bunny today. It's just a sucky day.

Here's another page from the first day at school.

I did a few more late last night, but haven't had a chance to photograph them.

Our air conditioner broke last night. The cold works fine but the hot doesn't work at all. It was so cold.

Holden rang to say I can pick up the car at 4:00pm tomorrow. Then they called later to say that they will not guarantee the paint protective finish (that costs extra) as there is some minor scratches in the front. Not happy.
Hope tomorrow is a better day.

I got the dog!!

So here's 2 more from my book. Totally loving it.

And today after total chaos, I got the call. "It's been approved". Woohoo!!
I am now the proud owner of a car. Yes we already have 2. But this car is all mine. Can fit all the family in. Is not to be shared with 4 other people. It's mine. Mine to have on weekends. Through the day. Night too. Mine 24 hours a day!! Hooray.
I am confined to the house almost every single day as other people use our cars. (they are work cars) And now I have my own. I am so happy I could burst. Good Day Today. Actually great day today. But I won't be getting it until maybe Friday. I can't wait.
Yay for me!!
Hope your day is as good as mine!
Might go buy a lotto ticket coz I am feeling pretty damn lucky today.
See ya!

2 more

So here's the next 2 pages of my book. I started at Christmas Day. Used all my leftover doodlebug stuff from 2 years ago.

Still haven't heard anything from the man about the "dog". I hate waiting for other people to get organised. Really can't stand it. So since I have to wait on other people- the earliest I will hear about it, will be tomorrow afternoon. I just want it before the weekend.
Today I received my Poppy Ink July Kit and Nic Howards new book "That's Life". Can't wait to get into both of them. The PI Kit has a cute little scallop stamp in it. (that's really what I wanted the kit for).
Well wish me luck that I have some happy news tomorrow!

So here's the cover and inside page of my new everyday book thing. I am really enjoying doing it. Having lots of fun.
I went to see a man about a dog today. Ok, it wasn't a dog but I did see a man. I don't want to get excited so I'm not going to say anything just in case it's a no. But I might have a new toy by the end of this week. I will probably know by Wednesday. Might have it by friday. And no it isn't anything related to scrapping. Although that would be nice too.
It was the first day today that both my kids have been back at school. It was so quiet. Didn't have time to scrap anymore pages because my computer was playing up. Then I had to go and do some work stuff. Didn't get home until after 5. Then I had to quickly make dinner before my hubby left for work. It is really cold tonight. Has been really cold today too. I think I need to bring the heater in here. It would be much nicer.
Target Toy Sale starts this week. So I am heading there on Thursday morning. I hope it isn't too crowded. Fat chance.
Ok. Off now. It's f-f-f-f-freezing...

Guess what the kids are watching

Cakey got it in the mail today. I made them hot choccy's with marshmallows and some popcorn and haven't heard a peep out of them.

I stated making a book today (just like the clever LEE) to document our everyday life. Managed to cover it and do 2 pages for christmas and then I got stuck at my birthday as I had no pics.
I'll give it another go tomorrow. I have a fair bit to catch up on. But I'm liking it so far.
I have run out of albums and if I do any pages they are just being shoved on my shelf in piles so I think this is a good alternative. Using up lots of leftovers.
Don't have many plans over the weekend. Babysitting for my neighbour tomorrow as she is taking her son to see Harry Potter.
That's about it.
Catch you later

From last week

Did these few pages last week.

I cannot believe how cold it is here. My hands are completely numb. I have to rub them together, type, rub them together, type........

Michael went back to school yesterday. He had a good day. They all had to swap seats around and he ended up being moved next to the girl he likes. Their birthdays fall on the same day. So cute. I don't know if she likes him - but she is nice to him. Thats enough for me. Michael has Aspergers Syndrome and sometimes kids are really mean. Which means I worry alot for him.

So I think it's pretty sweet that there is someone that is nice to him.

Caitlin has been naughty today. I think she's getting bored with everyone going back to school. She is absolutely lost between 9 and 3. No kids around. Bring on Monday.

Peace for me. And also means I can get my chrissy shopping done!

Goodnight xxx

One page

So I managed to do one page today with the goodies from my kit.
Also stopped in at The Scrapyard and bought some goodies. Bought 25 sheets of white cardstock, some bits and pieces from the Toby line from Love, Elsie. Also got some green chipboard letters. Oh and some tape rolls. $75 later. (bit naughty considering I only wanted some cardtock and tape.) Especially after I spent too much at Spotlight over the past 2 days.
I am going to have to be on a serious budget from now on. SERIOUS!!
Off to make a cuppa before Big Brother starts.
See ya,

I think I am obsessed....

With aqua. Just can't get enough of it at the moment. I love it.

Also have a bit of an obsession with glitter! So what did I buy - aqua glitter.

I am so digging that aqua tape that came in my Collection - yummo!
And the BE LOVELY tag is from the one and only Rebecca Sower! It is so staying in the clear package up on my shelf!!
I am so in love with my SIStv Collection - I can't actually bring myself to use it. I think I need a couple more days to drool over it!
Michael went back to school today, so Cakey and I headed to Spotlight. She wanted a candle making kit, and I wanted some glitter and kindyglitz and some ink pads.
Have nothing really planned for the rest of the week.
Perhaps a bit of scrapping. Got 2 more birthdays coming up so need to get cracking on some more cards!
Have a great day -

Last day of holidays

It is so cold. I don't like it. Bring on Summer..or at least Spring.

My scrapping room is in the garage and it's too cold to go in there for too long.
Michael goes back to school tomorrow. Then I have Cakey with me all week. This is the trouble with sending them to 2 different schools! She gets so many more holidays than him. I'm just glad it wasn't the other way round because she would be kicking up a stink that he got more hols than her!!
So glad Michelle went on Big Brother last night. She was driving me crazy.
Hopefully my SIStv Collection will arrive this week. Cannot wait to play with it. Yummy!
That's it. My fingers are numb now!!

It's the end of school holidays. Back to getting up early. Yuck.

I am definately not a morning person. Give me late nights and sleep ins any day!
I watched Shooter this week. I loved it. Mark Wahlberg is so hot!!
Boys layout is from a free online class by Kim Archer.
Michael goes back to school on Tuesday - but Caitlin doesn't go back untill the following week. So I'm trying to get all the christmas shopping done while the Toy Sales are on. Without getting busted.
Girls are so easy to buy for. But I find boys to be much harder. Maybe it's the getting older thing too. I think as they get older the more expensive it gets!
Anyway have a great Sunday.
Love K xxx
