my week so far...

This week is turning out great!  Having time on Monday (Otago Anniversary Day) to scrap with Lynley was just the best beginning!  Lynley was putting together some beginner class stuff that she intends to do soon – it looked great!  I got home to an email from The Scrapbook Outlet NZ asking if I would be a casual/oncall designer for their Design Team – of course I accepted – can’t wait to learn from Rach, Donna & Shani!  Then today I get an email from Jo (subeditor @ Up2Scrap) accepting one of my submissions – I did send a few mind you so as you can imagine I’m buzzing!  I have packaged the LO ready to send tomorrow after Playcentre.

Need to get back to reality though – Mum & Dad’s 50th Birthday this weekend, have to work out what I’m going to say, sort some table decorations & not to mention some way of sharing pictures of them when I only have Friday night & Saturday to do it!  Have to do some Playcentre Admin work this evening while Jase is @ Bible Study & then perhaps work on some speeches & table decoration research.  But first, dinner!

Congrats Lara. Seems like you have a reasonably relaxed lifestyle down there, I know you probably get busy etc like all of us, but seems to me just going by your pics etc that you have a really nice non-stress life, well compared to living in Auckland maybe, people don't seem to stop up here, you can't help buy get caught up in it all. I've worked for so long now and raising a family at the same time that I can't even imagine what it would be like to wake up and think, mmm I think I'll do some scrapping today!...lol usually I try to fit it in late at night if I'm lucky, there never seem to be enough hours in a day!!

Hope that came out right!...lol, I didn't mean to say you're not busy in any way, just mean't that it seems you have a nice life and get to spend some great quality time with your kids. Sometimes we get caught up in the big game of making money and don't stop to appreciate the simple things in life....(meaning us!!)

Lisa said...

Hi Lara, sorry me again.....lol, hey just been reading about your royal scrap camp mmm sounds awesome, that would be just heaven, escape for a few days, how cool would that be? Have to think about that one!

You don't have any time cause you are here posting all evening LOL! They say if you want something done ask a busy person. I tend to have lots on but seem to be able to prioritise & my family is one of those priorities. We took a drop in income just over a year ago with dh's work & he now works family friendly hours (10-5) five days a week. My paid employment means I get to work with my youngest two at Playcentre while my oldest is at school. I did full time study for a year (Post grad stuff) and that was 50 hours a week with children aged 4, 3 & 2 so life was really full on - living seems really cruisy at the moment & living here you can't help but enjoy the scenery. Our Scrap Camp should be a great weekend - might have to do a post on here about it - there are a couple happining up your way - one through KS (check Nic H or Lianne's blog - I think) and Scrapcamp wtih Jenny - I'll find her info & put it in a post too - stay tuned...

Congrats, Lara - that's so exciting (and deserved) for you. Can't wait to see what you get to do!

Ali Dub said...

Well done Lara - you busy little bee! Can't wait to see what juicy projects they get you to dream up.

Lisa said...

Yeah your right Lara, I seem to get less scrapping time since I started blogging.....lol, I'm sure the novelty will wear off, soon you'll probably see posts once a week! I'm lucky enough also to work and see my kids at the same time. Sounds like a lovely place where you live I've heard its a picture of beauty down there.

Ruth said...
