creating a memory …

What a busy week!!! Lots going on in my part of the world! We are moving from our house at the end of this year, and one of the projects I am working on at the moment is documenting the rooms in our home. We’ve been here nearly 11 years, so it is the only home that […]

dust storm …

Wow! We seem to be in the middle of a big dust storm stretching along the east coast of Australia. Sydney is shut down today, with airpots closed, ferries not running, traffic in ‘slow mode’ … here’s what the sky and Sydney Harbour Bridge looked like this morning … The dust is slowly moving up towards […]

exams and illness …

Things are a bit miserable at our house at the moment … for the last three out of four major exam sessions the boy has ‘enjoyed’, he has been sick, and this session has been no different. I don’t know whether it is psychological, or if it is just a combination of stress and tiredness and […]

crazy boy …

[Credits: Bounce kit, by [ksharonkdesigns]. Font: DJB Poppyseed.] I’m pretty sure that my kids weren’t born with books in their hands, as I was there at the time, lol, but pretty soon after, they discovered the written word. The girl always handled books with care, right from the start, but I remember the boy having […]

the surfer …

[Credits: Sea Reflections by Anita Designs. Font: DJB AmandaG.] My journaling on this layout tells the story …  It doesn’t sound like it, but we did spend a heap of time together before we got married, but I really had no idea that I was marrying into a surfing/skiing family, lol. I just went to […]

there’s a fairy at the bottom of my garden …

[Credits: I Heart You kit by Ana Reis, stitching from Starting Out 1 kit by [ksharonkdesigns]. Font: DJB Angel Baby.] We made a sort of informal deal with the girl a couple of years ago. She had so many subjects that she wanted to do when we had to make subject choices at the beginning […]
