It’s quiet round here

… so what’s been keeping me quiet?

Well … besides an icky little cold … I’ve been working on this:


The single most biggest paid scrapbooking project I have ever worked on. My cousins wedding album.


Such a huge job … which I probably underestimated just a tiny bit when I first agreed to work on it last year.


From getting the photos printed in different sizes, organising them into some sort of order, picking out papers and other bits and finding an album to work with … to actually scrapping the photos … I guess you could say a fair bit of time was taken on this project!


I am now really, really hoping that Karen and Malcolm will like it … when I figure out how to get it to them in Aussie.

What else has been happening?

Rebekah and Alexander are performing in J Rock tonight, which is the primary school version of Stage Challenge. I’m officially over practices and notices and all. Hopefully they’ve had a good day today … they had to be at the venue at 8.30 this morning for dress rehearsals and other activities. The concert is at 6.30 tonight … so it’s a big day for them.

I’ve been spending a bit of time at Kiwiscraps lately, designing and packing project kits. The down side to being there so much is that it’s really hard to not notice yummy stuff arriving in at the shop … and some stuff simply must come home with me!  Like this … and this … ahhh Fancy Pants! The on a whimsy journal pad is especially cool … will be used on a layout or two in the near future no doubt!

Don’t think I’ve shown you these yet either:


I decided that it would be a good idea to teach the Rally kids how to finger knit … and then of course I needed to find a use for a long string of finger knitting, so I made brooches. We’ve also been making sherbet and marbling paper … it’s been a busy term. Next Rally night is our annual movie night where we transform the church lounge into a movie theatre and break out the pop-corn, jaffas and fizzy drink. The kids bring their friends and families and just generally have lots of fun.

Right … Jessi and I going to grab a bite to eat before the concert so I’d better go convince her to put some warmer clothes on.
