Post #99

Okay, now the formatting on blogger is playing up, so I am not sure hoe this post is going to come out!!?

It has been a while since I last posted. I have been busy getting all the kids ready to return back to school. They are all growing so fast! Madison is in Yr2, Kaitlin Yr3, Courtney Yr6 (!!!!!!!!!!!), Jessica in Yr10 and Samara is studying for Cert. in Teachers Assistant. They all started last Monday, so today is really my first 'free' day in the past 8 weeks. Loving the quiet of the house, just the hum of the air conditioner.

I returned to work on Tuesday and have been so busy getting the retreat organised, doing our workshop schedule (online tomorrow!), ordering new stock and planning some exciting new things for 2008. More later in the post.

Don't forget that this post and the next are your last chance to leave comments and go in to the draw for a fabulous prize package. This package includes Golden products, ephemera pack, ribbons and trims, UM stamp and more. Just leave a comment and you are in the draw!














We finally had some rain last week and it was wonderful. So cool, wet and refreshing. It washed the dust off our city and cleansed my senses. Nothing inspires me more than a good rainfall and it has been sooooo long since it last rained. Alas, the rain has passed and we are back to hot days and balmy nights.
Okay, just a quick note on the competition we are planning. It will be a monthly challenge. You will purchase the kit of the month and create a masterpiece. The winner will receive the next months kit free. Stay tuned for more details....
Happy Monday.
