a funny story …

I’m here, really I am. It’s just that I have been trying to come to grips with the advertising side of being a beginner designer! It seems to be the general consensus that if you want to post ads in various digi-scrapping groups, you really need to make ads with clickable links. Sounds easy enough, […]

cherish …

[Credits: Simple Set #1 by [ksharonkdesigns]. Font: Angelina, Arrire Garde.] [Credits: Designer Page, Set 4 by Tracy Ann Designs. Font: Loosie Script, National First Font.] Moving on … sad triathlon news. Poor DH had TWO flat tyres on the bike leg, which was a bit of a bummer. He wasted 10 minutes changing one flat […]

sitting still?

[Credits: Kit: 4 The Boyz by [ksharonkdesigns]. My staple. Font: Typist, Passions Conflict ROB.] It’s Friday … yay! Morning tea was delicious, thanks for asking, lol … a chocolate coffee with french toast, the morning full of colour, design, inspiration … we wandered through a paper scrapshop and a home design store … the afternoon […]

my pink bag …

[Credits: Template by Miss Kim, from her blog. Papers by me. Stitching by Katie Pertiet. Font: Century Gothic.] I took this photo during the last triathlon, poor boy! He was sitting down reading a book, waiting for the athletes to ‘do their thang’, and I asked him to keep an eye on my bag while […]

[Kit: Funky 1, Green paper from Bedazzled Papers by Tracy Ann Designs. Template by Shari. Stitching by Katie Pertiet. Font: Century Gothic.] Yup, just wander over and shoot me … cos I’ve used that photo a few times now.

sow a thought …

[Kit: Birds of Paradise, by Shabby Miss Jenn Designs. Font: Typist.] Is it just me or is it sometimes difficult to scrap teenage boys. Mine is happy to sit for 3.5 seconds for me to snatch a photo, but then what do I do with it? If we are out, the boy is usually sitting […]

must blog, must blog …

Ever filled your car up with petrol, only to find you had no money and no id on you? Hmmm … I did today! Ever bought your ‘just starting high school daughter’ a new expensive maths calculator, only to have some peasant steal it out of her locker a week later. Yes, well, apparently I […]

my boy …

A photo from the weekend … the boy waiting patiently for the triathletes to finished their races. Mad Monday … the less said about it, the better! Not much of a positive nature to say about it … suffice to say, I was home in my pjs, as soon as I could. Monday nights are […]

as promised …

We have been off triathon-ing today … had to be out of bed at 4.30 this morning, yawn! It was held at a beach north of our city, and even though it is very beautiful, it is waaaaay too early for me. *more yawning* … I have photos, of course, but the batteries died just […]

we are the champions …

Well, one of us is!!! Almost a year ago, the girl went in her school’s swimming carnival, and did the usual … struggled up and down the pool in a couple of races, came home with a ‘third’ ribbon, and generally considered herself lucky that she hadn’t drowned in the process. THEN we started swimming […]

[Credits: Scaplift of Ali Edward’s ‘I See You’, in CK, Feb 07. Stitching by Katie Pertiet. My staple and kraft paper. Font: Haettenschweiler, Verdana.] This is what it’s all about, isn’t it? Happy, healthy kids, ones who live life to the full, who grow up into sensible adults who appreciate the things in life that […]

one of the things …

… I totally love about opening up my emails each day, is that I never know what to expect. And today, I got a lovely surprise. One of my layouts, My Girl, is being spotlighted on the ‘Dishin’ the Digi – Coast 2 Coast … it runs from Feb 6 to Feb 12, so rock […]

more summer splashing …

[Credits: Inspired by a layout by luv2cre8, called ‘anticipation’. Fonts: Avante and Haettenschweiler.] We are doing a lot of this at the moment … pool stuff! I looked out the window yesterday, and there were three in the pool at our house. And all of them going flat out round and round in circles, trying […]

happy [crows] feet …

[Credits: Paper and Alpha from Happy Feet kit, by [ksharonkdesigns]. My staple and notepaper. Font: Century Old Style.] Happy [crows] feet! Do you have them? I sure do. And I must admit it’s not really as much of a problem as I thought it would. I hate seeing unhappy people, so I’m glad that my […]

not watching …

[Credit: Paper from True Blue, stitching and swirl from Peninsula, by Tracy Ann Designs. Font: Garamond, Trebuchet MS.] I have the world’s worst memory, I freely admit that. I have lists everywhere, and I constantly lose them. The shopping list is always stuck to the fridge, and I am usually half-way down the grocery aisle […]
