Thought it was about time i posted again, although I have not actually made anything since Christmas! not for want of trying tho! The Creative Juices have totally dried up so i will just go with the flow and hope it kicks in soon!
Thanks to Creative Everyday i have been thinking a lot more about arty stuff and drawing heaps on the shower screen [my favorite canvas!] it just doesn't seem to make it out of the bathroom:( !!
The girls and i also went to the local art gallery and The Golden Age of Couture exhibition. 1947-57.
It was gobsmacking.
Chanel, Dior, Balenciaga to name a few. Jennifer Hawkins opened it [not that i personally saw her!] but she looked pretty stunning in the pics.
I loved the cocktail dresses the best and the beautifully cut woollen coats with their beautiful shape and full skirts.
It was such a glamorous time and to think i got stuck with the eighties! shoulder pads and big hair lol!
I had disappointing news last week that my local Scrapbook is closing down at the end of the month. Its such a shame as it was the only one left here. She won Retailer of the Year last year and had a thriving business but is closing beacause of ill health.
wish i could buy it.
must buy a tattslotto ticket......
I have been filling in time with appts like the dentist, acc etc so my spare time has not been wasted.
i have 5 days off next week and Charlie and i are going to paint her room. Its currently yellow with a white lace fairy austrian so we are going with white walls and a deep purple feature wall. much more teenagerish!
I bought her a new white day bed a few months ago so i guess new bedlinen and doona cover will be in order as well!!
Tomorrow night we are off to the Cricket at the MCG. Oz vs Sth Africa. I have never been before, we are very excited as its a 20/20 so it should be action packed. It is however, somewhat tempered by the news below....
The really sad news that happened this morning is that my next door neighbors 19 yr old son and girlfriend were killed in a car accident in Gippsland last night. We are all pretty stunned and upset and cant begin to imagine what a horrendous thing to go through.
It hits pretty close to home as my girls are getting old enough to get licences and go out in mates cars. scary times ahead, just have to hope that they make the right decisions with their friends.
Two families in so much pain tonight, so sad.....
