And while I am on a roll

and catching up with my blog updating....
I wanted to pop up a couple of pics of what my niece Dahna made on a visit to me during the school holidays. Dahna is very artistic so it wasn't hard to keep her occupied in my craft room with stamps and paper, she enjoyed making a gift for her Mum's birthday and I had a great time showing her how use some of the new toys I have accumulated, it was fun having somebody to play with for a couple of days, lol. Thanks so much for your company Dahna, it was lovely having you visit.

Dahna did a great job of the dvd notepad holder and card don't you think.


A little update

on my Stamping Up workshops. 
I have fallen behind with posting pics of my cards etc that have been made in the classes.
 So I decided it would be a good idea to put them all together in an album for those who are interested in this craft and I can update it when I have new items to share.
 I love going along once a month to the workshops where we get to sample the paper and stamps etc from the Stampin Up range.
Bron our Demonstrator is brilliant at showing us
a new technique each month, so much so that each month I have to put in an order for some goodies, did I say how addicting it is.

I'm a lucky girl...

my wonderful friends from the online C.R.A.F.T group made a road trip up from Khristina's house in Ipswich to come visit with me for a bit before they returned to Mt Alford for the yearly retreat, where they are now enjoying themselves immensely.

 I wasn't able to attend this year so it was fantastic to have the girls make the drive up to Bargara, especially because we had some USA ladies coming over for the retreat. We took a drive into town to the LQS  and enjoyed some yummy seafood for lunch at Grunskies by The River.
 It was just fantastic to meet Marilyn and Jolene from the States and Amanda from Adelaide and to catch up with the other girls from New Zealand and Sydney, even though we have formed great friendships over the years of online chatting it is so much more fun meeting in person. I have put a few pics in an album here if you would like a peep at our time spent together here in Bargara.
