Another layout

I scrapped it last night. It feels really good to be using up my older stuff.

Which is timely because I am expecting some deliveries this week and next.
Love parcels ;o)

I had fun. It made me happy.

So I am a happy girl once again!!
Have a great Saturday ;o)

Heroes Thursday

Hooray- Heroes Thursday is here!!

Last night I was up really late and scrapped these. I didn't do a very good job. I don't really like them at all.

So I decided to stop in today at The Scrapyard and spend my VIP card. They just got in the new Love Elsie - Jack and Abby line yesterday , so I picked up the journalling stamps, 3 sheets of cardstock and yet ANOTHER pack of Thickers. $30 well spent I reckon!!
I placed an order last week for some scrappy goodness. It should be here next week. Can't wait. I got a heap of LE Jack & Abby, some Hambly and the Kelli Crowe Collection from a couple of months ago. Also ordered this stuff called Frosting. I think it is jewels on top of flexible adhesive. Not quite sure - but I can't wait to play with it. Sounds fun.
Got a huge pile of pics here to scrap - but haven't felt very good. I started getting a headache this morning that got really bad by this afternoon. I took Panadol - didn't help. I drank heaps of water - didn't help. So I went to sleep at 3:30. Hubby woke me at 4:30. He went and picked up the kids and organised dinner.
I've taken some more Panadol but it doesn't seem to be doing anything. So painful.
Absolutely going to get an early night tonight. Don't think I can stay awake. It's pounding.
Anyway - enough moaning -
See you later ;o)

Today I started my diet.
The no wheat, no dairy, no red meat diet.
This diet is not about calorie consumption - it's about creating a balance in your body, free from particular chemicals and such that cause an imbalance. And for me, that just happens to be dairy, meat and wheat - and alot of other stuff.
I know it sounds a bit weird but I did this a few years ago when I was constantly ill and in pain. It worked. A wonderful side effect was that I dropped all my excess weight.
What happened - I hear you say?
Well, I started eating things here and there that I shouldn't so I piled all the kilos back on.
But as of today - NO MORE.
I am 20+ kilos overweight. I don't care how long it takes. I just plan to be my healthy weight by the time my 30th birthday rolls around.

Other news - I went to see the doctor about my hand. He believes I have carpal tunnel syndrome. NICE. So in two weeks I have a date with a neurologist to find out for sure. Then after that I don't know exactly. Operation perhaps. I don't care - I just want it fixed. It hurts!!

And the final piece of news - back smoking again. Can you believe it? After a whole month!!
Yes I am really disappointed in myself. But I will try again when I am ready. I am really trying to limit them for now.

Haven't scrapped in a while. It's my right hand that hurts - so it makes it a bit hard.
But I have ordered a whole heap of yumminess with the money from next month (that I haven't been paid yet) Back to old habits - OOPS!!

What a downer of a post. That's just me at the moment!!

Just quickly

Here's another two layouts I did today with the Kristina Contes Collection from Scrap In Style. Love these papers.

Back to it -

Good morning ;o)

I decided to scrap last night. Needed to keep my hands busy. (I bought a packet of smokes yesterday - but I only had one and threw the rest away) It was disgusting. And I didn't enjoy it. There is no physical need for a cigarette. I think it's just a psychological need now.
Anyway I went and got some photo paper and decided to get my scrap on.
Nothing spectacular. As you can tell by now - I don't ever do spectacular.....but I like them.
Felt so good to scrap again.
I did start making some cards for me. But really need to get my hands on a cristmas stamp. You'd think that would be easy - nope - they are flying out the doors before I get to them. I really want to get the "Merriest Wishes Clear Design stamps" from Hero Arts.
So if anyone sees them can you let me know. So I can snap them up!!
That's it. Going to go and enjoy my cup of tea!!

Happy Mail


Hooray for happy mail days!!

Today I received my Kristina Contes collection from ScrapInStyle. I love it. Love the colours. Love the design. Love the Hambly. And if only you could see the wooden postcard up close in real life. It is simply beautiful.

I am a happy girl!!

My little man is off at Indy today. I hope he is having a good time!
Have a great day!

Wednesday already

Yesterday I received my cards. So I quickly whipped up 8 more and dropped them off to Mum today. And now I have $50 bucks in my kitty - that has Love Elsie written all over it!!

The card review - the cards were not exactly as I thought. A bit too thin than I like. (I like sturdy) And a bit smaller than I thought. Didn't exactly line up when folded. And the envelopes got smooshed in the mailing box. They did arrive within a timely manner - so that was good.

I think it is day 21 today. I've lost count. Feeling a little stressed and overwhelmed. And severe lack of sleep doesn't help.

Michael is off to Indy tomorrow. He is so excited!

My internet sucks at the moment. It is really slow. Like slower than dialup and it's a pain in the ass!! I don't know why it's like this. But I want it fixed. It's driving me insane!!

That's all -

Blah Sunday

Here's a layout I made today.

And some more pages from my journal.

I just used my last sheet of A4 photo paper so there'll be no more scrapping this afternoon. Bugger!! I was just staring to get into it too.

I hope the cards I ordered last week, arrive tomorrow - so then I'll have something to do with my hands. And not to mention $50.00 bucks for the kitty!!
Also expecting my SIStv collection- so I hope that comes this week too.
Only 17 days till I can go shopping again!

Early Saturday -

Up early this morning. Have to take Cakey for dance rehearsals.

Did a bit of scrapping last night. I didn't have any new pics for a layout so I decided to play catch up in my journal. I am still not all the way caught up (are we ever??)
My book is getting really thick now. Not sure how fat I can go.
Going to give it another go this afternoon. See if I can get there!!

Very best cake

Here's another layout I quickly did tonight. The pic was taken on my 20th birthday. And it's about the beautiful cake that my wonderful husband made for me. What a sweetheart!!
I'm just recording Heroes now. Coz I'll stay up until hubby comes back for his break and then we can watch it together.

Day 15

Today has been a bit hard with the cravings so I decided to scrap. This is for the Becky Higgins Challenge over at SIStv. The link is over there ..........>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
And I have been in here for so long...I din't even check the time and now I have to go and pick my boy up from school!! Ooops!!!

A bit of linkage....

I really like to make my own cards. It's not often that I will buy a pre made card. But since one of my local scrap shops closed down - I haven't been able to find square white cards with envelopes. That is, until, I was searching last night and I stumbled across here - Blue Edge Crafts. After shipping I paid $53.00. Which equals 53 cents for a card and envelope. Square ones!! I dare you to find a better deal. Even on ebay I was looking at 68 cents.
I am hoping they are matte and not glossy. I hate the glossy cards. Anyway I should get them next week - so I'll let you know what the quality is like. Hopefully they are exactly what I think they are. So happy. I have been searching for months!! I think Blue Edge Crafts is going to be my new best friend!!

Off to do my happy dance now ;o)

Winners are Grinners

So tonight I found out that I won some cool new Making Memories Halloween stuff from Christy at The Scarlet Lime. How cool is that!! That makes spending my last $50 feel so much better!!

Happy to be me right now!!!!

The 13th day

Here's a layout from a while ago.
Haven't scrapped anything today - although that's not to say I won't later.
I just don't think I've posted it here before.

Today Cakey went back to school. And I tell you what - she looks so cute with a haircut. Hubs and I went to check the mail and borrowed some movies. Having a bit of a blah day. I watched "because i said so" downstairs and he watched "28 days later" upstairs and then we are going to watch "oceans thirteen" tonight.

And that's all today.
Got to hang washing out and go and get the kiddles from school soon. Boring day. Have no energy today. Need more sleep. It took me hours last night to fall asleep. Not happy! I love sleep!!

Catch you tomorrow -

Monday, 8 October 2007


Today, Cakey and I dropped Michael off at school, went to visit Mum, got her haircut and came home and I scrapped. And bid a little more on ebay.
Not very eventful at all!!

Should have stayed at home

Here's the other card that I made last night. I don't think it's spectacular but at least I used those Heidi Grace glass effects holly & ivy things that I've had sitting here for the past 2 christmasses.
I went shopping today and blew my other $50 on this stuff. I don't think I spent it well. Considering I really wanted to save it to get myself a scrapworks album. Ooops. I still have to get used to this budget thing.
By the time I have money again I bet a whole heap of new stuff will be coming out! Bugger.
Got a bit of a storm here tonight. There is hail about. Hope it doesn't hit here coz my car is outside.
Gotta get to bed early tonight. Michael is back at school tomorrow. I just love school traffic.
Happy Sunday to you -

P.S Today is Day 11 of no smoking. I am feeling a bit better too. Go me!!

This was all I managed to do today.
After getting inspiration from todays post on the Hambly blog. So cool.
I think I might make another with some blingy bits!

I must be psychic

So yesterday I was really wanting to get a scrappy fix. And what happened last night? I got paid. Woohoo!!
First up I paid school fees for this term. Put away money for the groceries and insurance. (i get paid monthly)
And with my new budget I have $100 a month to spend how I want.
So I placed my order this morning for the Kristina Contes Collection at Scrap In Style. And with shipping that leaves me with $50 for the rest of the month.
I won't get it for about 2 weeks - so I'm thinking I need a bit of instant gratification. Perhaps a little trip down the scrapyard. I just really don't want to blow it and regret it. Especially since I'm on such a tight budget. And I don't exactly need anything. I don't think. Oh..blank square cards - but they don't sell them. Hmmm. What to do?

Maybe I'll just sit on it for a while!!

Have a great Saturday!!

Day 9

Feeling ok today!

HEROES season 2 premiere was on last night. YAY!! Love that show!

Had trouble sleeping last night - which is probably why I only feel ok today!

In serious need of a scrappy fix. With all the yummy new stuff out- it's like torture!!!
This is an old layout - not sure if I have posted it before. Sorry if I have.
Just got nothing new for you!! ;o)
Have a great weekend-

Day 8

Made this pop up card today. My first try at one. Not really impressive

but I have a plan for next time.

Also scrapped the water baby layout last night. How cool are the 7 gypsies glitter sheets. They are so easy and go on so nice. It's a really nice subtle glitter. Love it. Definately want more of that!! I can tell mine isn't going to last long!!

I had to move my desk around again. My compuet keeps shutting dow (i think it is overheating) so I have put it on the side part of my table in front of the fan. So far I've had no problems. Touch wood!!

Still got a cough. But haven't had bad cravings today. Going well. Bit of a headache. And feeling really exhausted. Can't wait to get better and get started on losing weight. I have 25kgs to lose. And I reckon that's going to take a while!!

Kids go back to school next week. I think Michael goes back on Monday and Caitlin goes back on Tuesday. I'm going to miss them being around!!

See you tomorrow -

Day 7

Wow. I made a week. Yay. Very proud of myself.
Also scrapped this last night. It's for a challenge at SIStv. The challenge was to use 10 photos in a layout. Not sure if I like it. But hubby did.
Still got the coughs. But I don't think I am as bad as I was yesterday. I'll see how today progresses. May see a doctor this arvo.

Day 6

Not a very good day today.
Bought a packet of cigarettes and a jar of coffee and some mud cake.
I had one coffee, half a piece of cake, and the cigarettes are unopened on top of the fridge.
Don't know how I feel.

Still sick. Every time I cough - my lungs burn.
That can't be good. Maybe I should go to the doctors.

Made these 2 cards last night.
No scrap action today. After moving the garage and my desk around - my printer cable doesn't reach. Think I might have a shuffle and reorganise.

See ya -

Day 5

Having a much better day today. Hardly any cravings but I'm still sick. Feel pretty awful.

Yesterday Michael was at the pool and Connor threw a ball and accidently hit him in the face. So Michael has a big graze under his eye. And this is his bruised foot from last Sunday when he was swinging on the chair. He has certainly been very unlucky these holidays. I think I need to keep an extra eye on him next Sunday (accidents seem to happen only on Sunday for him). Poor little bugger.
