I have always loved them…. I love the idea of solid blocks (soy wax)

I wish you could smell them……. mmmmm…. very calming….

From Gemalyn…. They also have Body Butter, Soaps and lots, lots more yummy goodies!!

I’m thinking “CHRISTMAS PRESENTS”… ;-)

Almost the end of my 2 weeks’ Holidays…….

Sad, but true……… it has been a productive, relaxing, exciting, happy Holidays for me….. I didn’t go overseas, but I did go interstate last week-end….

The second week I did some de-cluttering…. and it felt GOOD!!!… It took me only a couple of days, so the rest of this week I have been painting….. canvas’s ….. I did Oct 123 Challenge.. matter of fact I did 2!!

A week end away…. and I am pumped!!!!!!

As you MAY have read in the previous Blog Post I had a fantastic weekend of painting and relaxing in Port Fairy…….

It’s amazing how good I felt….. haven’t felt that good in…. well a loooong time…..

I have been wanting to ‘de-clutter’ …. to chuck out stuff I haven’t used and NEVER will!!!….. I have talked about it for months……

So this is what I started about an hour after I got home….

I am so pleased with what I accomplished in 2 days!!! I never want it to get that bad EVER AGAIN!!!…. it will be so much easier to keep clean and tidy….

Well….. I figured I should go away more often!!!….. ;-)

Week 1 of Holidays done…… 7 more sleeps to go…

before reality hits!!!!!!!!!….

It’s been a hectic, but awesome week so far…. I have been Face Painting at the 25 year Celebrations at King Craig Plaza in Naracoorte, and for the kids Activities Program at Target last week….

On Friday, I left for Port Fairy for an “AFL Scrap/Art Grand Final Party”…. with 5 other FUN, gorgeous, talented ladies….. it was a hoot!!! Have a look at this Beach House…

CASABA HOLIDAY HOUSE 

3 Storeys… games room, laundry, toilet & garage downstairs… kitchen, dining, family room ground floor, 2 bedrooms, bathroom and toilet….and upstairs, another 2 bedrooms (I think)… bathroom, and lounge room …. all modern decor and lots & lots of windows…
