Hot, Flowers & Paint!

I bet you are wondering what does that mean?

Well, the last couple of days have been pretty darn hot here....the rest I will explain as we go along....... Saturday night I spent the evening with my daughter, a gorgeous scrap friend from Perth, whom I met online, and 2 other awesome local scrappers...... I didn't scrap, I grabbed some of my old PP and punched out flowers with some new flower punches, while chatting and laughing.....(I also managed get my youngest granddaughter to fall asleep in my arms......awwwww......cute)
The next day was another hot one, so I spent the afternoon & most of the evening making these:
In between makin these gorgeous flowers, I have been prepping pages for Art Journals........ I'm not a great one for adding much journalling to my LO's, so this may help me express myself in art form.... I love paints, mists and my favourite Modge Podge......
On the left is the a journal with paint background, but will add more to the page as I feel the urge..... and on the right is a small old 2008 diary I covered with torn book pages with modge podge, and the top of the photo of course, are some of the flowers I've made......I have been inspired by a few awesome people..... Gigi, Louise Nelson, and I also love Balzer Designs
I going to try to do something 'arty' everyday this month.... and hopefully some actual journalling..LOL...


Oops time has gotten away on me again...... off to go for an evening walk!

SCOOTER!!!

Today SCOOTER & I went to the Gym for an hour, then the Chemist & then the Post Office to pick up a parcel.............. it was a pizza box with scrapping goodies!!!!!
then I had the problem of how to get it home!!!
So I ended up going to Cheap As Chips to buy $2 velcro straps...... must've looked pretty dorky WITH A PIZZA BOX ON THE BACK...LOL.... I wish I taken a photo of it now...

We then had a stop-over at my daughter and grandies for a chat & cuddles... and back home again....safe & sound.
Tomorrow?.....well, I have two shifts at work, one in the morning & one late afternoon......... I'm sure I will find a reason to take SCOOTER for a spin in between shifts!!!! LOL

What a month it has been!!!!

My thoughts and prayers are with the victims of floods and fires everywhere.... it is so sad to hear there are still people missing, my heart goes out to the family & freinds...... All those who have been helping clean up the debris ... YOU ALL DESERVE A MEDAL!!! I can only imagine how unpleasant it would be!

It's been a while since my last post, and a lot has happened since then.... NYE Party with friends was pretty tame, I took photos but they didn't turn out!

On the 2nd Jan DH & I went to Nelson Vic for a relaxing day on the Glenelg fishing..... a gorgeous day, the water was very dirty though (and it will be worse once the water comes down from the floods up north....


 I was thrilled that we bought AUSTSWIM Classes for 2 of our grandsons... 7 days...... and we had good weather up to the last day (bit drizzly).. but they really enjoyed it, and they improved from day 1!!! Next year they go to the BIG pool!!!

 That's Regan in the middle.

 Chei... and he LOVES putting his head under the water!!!!!!! Good job Chei!!!!!

 On the 8th Jan we went to a friends 50th Birthday Dinner at the Barn (Mount Gambier)..... and I could not resist taking a photo of my meal!!!!! It was to die for!!!! Surf & Turf....... compliments to the chef!

AND of course I have been back to work....BLAH!.... I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY enjoyed my 2 and a bit weeks off work over Christmas and NY....... stayed up late and slept in.........I am not an early morning person, so I struggle to get up in the mornings to start at 5am!!!! I know I really am lucky to even have a job.... so toughen up Princess..eh?

Just before Christmas I swapped my Honda 600 motorbike for a Kawasaki 250...... and until today had only ridden it for about half an hour...... so today, the weather was perfect for riding!
We went Penola about half an hour north of Mt Gambier for lunch. I loved it so much I wanted to ride to Port MacDonnel, which about 20 mins south of Mt Gambier......I feel much happier on the Kwaka because now BOTH MY FEET touch the ground!!!

The sea was pretty calm, a bit of breeze and it wasn't cold (which it usually is)...... we arrived home around 3-30......
I have edited and printed photos already and hoping to do some scrapping in the next few days!!!!!
