missing teeth, dogs & collecting

played a little last night with the supplies I have in my crop bag. did some 6 x 12's. was a nice break from packing & cleaning :-)

Katya lost her first tooth this morning - much to her big sisters excitement (who is now trying to pull out her 4th tooth just so she doesn't miss out on the tooth fairy).

& I found this 'arrangement' outside. Ethan was away... Katya & Alicia had tied all sorts of things to the tree: fairy wings, blankets, baskets (a swing/bed for teddy) & even chairs. they 'camped' out on the trampoline & only those who had 'decorated' could come into their house! They will miss this tree at the new house!

gala days and fairs

just some of the 'events' going on at SBO - keep an eye on the forum... & we are going to a real one tomorrow at Lake Hayes Pavilion :-) I must not purchase any junk LOL - with our move only 4 sleeps away :-).

We have to get a mailbox for our new house... current owners have just used a PO Box... hmm, what sort to get... any suggestions?

all stuffy with a cold at the moment, itchy eyes & all. The house is ready here for us to move out of.. as much as it can be with us & some boxes still in it LOL - just have windows, ovens, walls, doors & behind fridges etc to clean out.

To those I owed PIF's & RAKS... they were all posted on Wednesday :-)

SENZ was fantastic - met SBO dt members for the first time....taught scrapbooking for the first time & attended SENZ for the first time too :-)

journal draw & the snow

Jase just pulled two names from a bowl for the journals..... AMANDA & ROCHELLE.

So please send me an email scrappykea at xtra dot co dot nz with your snail mail addy... I will post them, but it may take a week or so as I have a lot on this week :-) (Janine & Karen your PIF is coming... just me & the mail/post system don't get on too well.. guess it's cause I grew up rurally & we just put stuff in the mail box at the end of the drive & the mailperson took it away ... now I have to go to one of their specific buildings... just one of those things about being a townie!

Didn't feel too much like a townie today out at Waitiri though... kids played in the rocks and adults enjoyed some clay shooting & each others company.... nice veiw of the snow covered mountains too!

Ok must get on with SENZ preparation... back to work tomorrow... School, Playcentre.... & then off to Christchurch on Thursday :-)

busy :-)

busy making things & playing with stuff - all for SENZ next week & with what SBO will have over the weekend! I even have the expression here with me so I can demo it next weekend! The collage above is just some of the things I have been working on. I have had a couple of packages arrive for make & takes this week - I love that kind of delivery :-) Wish my coffeemachine would come back too though... long story but I'm not sure I'd buy products by that company again... it's a well known brand and their service is really disappointing. The pump stopped working about three months ago & after a further month I got a replacement machine.....then when that machine was less than 3 weeks old... the steamer pump stopped working!!!! we didn't want another long wait, but it's been another 3 weeks!!!!!!!! but in the mean time - here's the one cup filter that I'm using.....

Also, since I'm packing for our move (in between playing with paper & embellishments) I've been getting rid of 'stuff'. We've been sorting out things this week for a garage sale tomorrow (but only if it stops raining) otherwise we might just have a trip to the Salvation Army Store - or ask them to come to us! but if you want to 'purge' your stuff too... check out this challenge :-)
