my new model

Well today being sunday I am at work, working hard, yeah right I hear you cry, anyhoo I have been going crazy trying to work out family assistance payment and also child care rebates, it does your head in I tells ya... you need a double degree and then some just to even get close to working out who and where payments come from. Anyhoo, I will just cross my fingers for some sort of tax refund.

On a happy note, my son kindly modelled for me yesterday so I could play with my new camera, he is such a sweetie, oh and not to mention very photogenic... yes I am biased.

Went to a gorgeous fundraising trivia night last night, our table the champions came in 3rd, so not bad out of 30 odd tables, and I must say we would have come first had the questions been more our era!!! YKWIM. It was organised through Bunnings warehouse Mill Park, to raise funds for a family in need whose Dad/Hubby has cancer, so a very good cause. I will post a pic of me wrapped up in toilet paper later LOL.

a camera plus add 1 plasma

Hello all,
I am extremely titilated this arvo, as I got a digital SLR - Nikon D40, not the newest model but hey I think I will enjoy it as I get to play the whole focusing thing like the old days with our pentax slr. I am hoping to be able to post up some cool shots soon, gotta wait now while the battery pack charges... tic toc!

So when I was getting my camera my DH asked did I want a plasma with that, well sure hon! bring it on, now nip tuck and I can get intimate in my bedroom, the old X-box, (we've been in upgrading frenzy) will be my media centre so Bon Jovi will be singing his heart out in my BEDROOM, that's as close as I will ever get I am sure ;)

Have been trying like crazy to sort out my scrapbooking supplies, I can tell you this is one big job! I am hoping to have a better working room for all crafts.

PS if you like the apron pictured on my blog you can purchase one, they are high quality black aprons with double pockets, for storing all sorts of things when you are in a crafty frame o mind. For $28 and a small amount of postage I can get one to you.

Anyhoo, the kids are on the nag for my attention better get moving.

O roo for now - Tan

Today is a new day

Am getting to finally enjoy my Wii fit that I won, well between hubby and the kids, plus the neigbours kids hogging it, I hardly get a chance, and just between you me and the fencepost, I am the one who needs it the most ;)

I created a beautiful card last night for a dear friends 1 year old, precious little girl, had fun using my new stampin up! stamps and of course one of my fav products, the dazzling diamonds - very yummy glitter. I will post my pic, although my photographing of it doesnt show it's glitzy beauty. Oh well.

Life is flat out as usual, have been trying to compare the Nikon D40 with the Nikon D60 to see which DSLR I should get, so many differing opinions, think I will need to do more research and have a touch and feel at the camera store. I will keep you posted. I am hoping to get one before my dear son turns 3 in a couple of weeks.

Todays adventure will be me looking for paint and a bookcase with Nate who loves to shop NOT, just like his dad.

My first ever blog - ooooo

Hiya all to all those creative mummas out there, I just discovered in the wee hours that my guru, my lover, my partner for life has been living a secret life, he's got a blog!!! So here is mine because he said "it is so simple". Like my life - LOL

I am a mum, I am crazy, I am creative, I am messy as all hell, I am a good friend and I could keep going but I cant think right now.

I love scrapbooking, its my muse, my thing, I love to buy scrapbook supplies, did I mention I am also a shopaholic *grin* - anyhoo I also sell scrapbooking aprons and stampin up! stamps.

My other passion is competition entering... so far this year I have won lots of little nice prizes, but my recent win was a Wii and Wii fit, something I had been wanting since Mothers day, now just to get on the thing and lose some weight :)

I will attach my latest layout that I created for a mag competition.
