Shhhh … it’s a secret.

Wanna see?


Can’t show you what’s inside until it gets to it’s destination later this week …

But I can show you this layout:


Which was on the Fiskars blog a while ago. Yep that’s me when I was 19 … now I’m all grown up with boring brown hair.

And this layout:


Which was on the Paper Pesto blog recently … I’ve rediscovered my stash of rubons since doing this layout … specially like the idea of putting them on accetate and adding bling. Photo of the grown up me complete with family was taken last year by Deb Scheib.

Don’t you hate it when you can think up amazing, incredible blog posts but when it comes time to actually write them all the words disappear? Maybe I should just give up on the words and just show you pretty pictures. Only sometimes I don’t have pictures to show you of all I want you to know about … like the cupcake crop of the last post, I should have mentioned that Rhonda had set up the tables with pretty cupcake party stuff … and there were pink lollies and chocolates and she made yummy cupcakes too and the whole room looked amazing … only I don’t have any photos of all that, so I forgot to mention it.

I also keep forgetting to mention that I’ve discovered I only get e-mail notification of some of your lovely comments … half of them sneak by me only to be discovered later … and then I can’t reply to them by e-mail. Very annoying, must look into that one day … has anyone else had a similar problem and solved it? Let me know if you’ve got answers! Don’t stop commenting though … I love your comments … even the ones that call me insane!

Congrats to the new SBO design team … so exciting to see some of those names. And did you see The Sketch book have something to keep you busy this week? Blue skies and sunshine today … I like this weather much better than Sunday’s snow showers. Catching up on washing, sorting the house, packing parcels to be posted, writing project instructions and planning todays netball training session … okay, back to it.

  1. Well the box looks intriguing; and I suggest you contact WordPress to sort out your comment problems cos it sounds like something needs resetting. Also an idea for your blog post woes … I write drafts now, adding bits and pieces when I think of them, and then put together and publish when I have time … saves ideas slipping from your mind!LOL

  2. i’m with heidi on the drafts… write a few and add pics and then update later… and as for the comments.. someone else with a wordpress blog said the same thing… I’m all good (though get the odd comment in the spam!!!)
