wild child …

[Credits: Eumundi by Tracy Ann Designs. My staple. Font: Journaling Hand, Avante.] Well, we survived the first day of high school … we came home with tomato sauce down the front of our new white shirt, a huge blister on one heel, and hair looking like it had been pulled backwards through a hedge. But […]

[Credits: Stitching by Katie Pertiet. Papers and staple by me. Fonts: Haettenschweiler, Arial.] So here is the ‘quote of the day’ … great for summer and water layouts, and I know that many of you are in the grips of winter, so just save it away somewhere safe to bring out during your summer. Oxygen […]

[Credits: Swirl from Blue Lake by Tracy Ann Designs, good-looking boy by me (he, he)! Font: Angelina.]   We enjoyed a family swim and dinner last night, at my sister’s home.

[Credits: Gimme Some Luv, by Shabby Miss Jenn Designs. Fonts: WeezerFont, Journaling Hand.] I AM still alive … it just doesn’t look like it, according to my blog.

swim bike run …

[Credits: Fonts: MigraineSerif, Arial, Century Gothic.] The other day, my DH came home from swimming training with a great sports quote. You can see it in the layout above … ‘Swim like there’s no bike. Bike like there’s no run. Run like there’s no tomorrow.’ Of course, I had a think about the quote … […]

don’t you love …

… new stationery! The girl and I went to OfficeWorks today, and there we found … green art books, a pretty aubergine folder, and at the local newsagent a magazine that had the best of both worlds, the green world and the aubergine world. The green folders are to create into inspiration folders. Well, one […]

it’s a green thang …

[Credits: Star doodles by Ida. Font: Century Gothic.] Does anyone else out there have this problem? Sneaky little Christmas ornaments finding their way up on to the tree, when they are totally the wrong colour? Maybe it’s just my tree. I have such special friends that spoil me round Christmas time. Quiet day today, a […]

i am every emotion …

[Credits: Sassy, by [ksharonkdesigns]. Font: 5thGrader.] Have you noticed I have been scrapping more about my boy lately? He was being left behind in the scrapping stakes … so much easier to scrap pretty kits with pretty girls, than to do boy layouts, but I mustn’t use that as an excuse. So here he is, […]

books, books, books …

[ I remember that sometime last week I said I would chat about my library, perhaps share some of my favourites with you. I love most types of reading material, though I don’t enjoy horror or anything too salacious, I must admit. I have always loved books … they have been with me all my […]

dreamer …

[Fonts: New Romantic, Copperplate Gothic.] It seems as though my bones ache today. Yes blogger friends, I got on the treadmill yesterday, and did some interval training, and tomorrow, I am going to get on again.
