i wish.....

i posted more regularly , then i wouldnt feel so overwhelmed or give you an overload of information. lol

last week i got home and found the dog had pulled the nurofen[ibroprufen] off the bench and eaten at least 10 tablets. so after two days of being on a drip , blood tests and $500 later she is fine and back to her naughty self. the nurofen now being tucked away in a cupboard with anything else that she shouldnt have.

as lucy said , that was an expensive packet of nurofen!

Charlie has returned from the kfc team challenge where our little country store came second in the national comp. She went to Qld for four days all expenses paid and came home with a new camera and great prizemoney. who knew there was a certain way to pack fries and that you had 47 secs to get your customers thru drive thru.

yep 47 secs, think about that next time you are scratching around the car for change or arguing with your kids about their order!

the next few weeks are busy for her with getting her braces off after 2 yrs and 8 months , her deb and.........

she's off to Denmark in Jan on her Rotary exchange, so its busy busy busy.

Lucy has her ag art dress nearly finished and is busy with getting her final folios finished.

i made some extra fused plastic cards and most are traded. When i get a working sewing machine again i will make some more! i like the ragged edge on these...









i made this notebook cover from some fused plastic and was pretty happy how it turned out....


made these two litle poohs for friends having bubs , they are about 10 cm /4" tall and fully jointed. Ive been making these for years for all the babies and i put mine on the christmas tree each year. The pattern came from Rosemary McQueen back in the 80's when teddys were all the rage.....



i have been recieving some lovely atc in the mail and will post soon....

i promise..

Thanks for all the kind comments too on my last post, its a wonderful world the blogging world.......
