the week so far.....

Lots has happened since Friday....

well fist of all...I got an email from ChookyBlue to let me know that i have been accepted in her SSCS {secret santa christmas swap} - This is so exciting....I have already completed one gift for my secret partner.....and I am off to the stitches and Craft fair this week...so am bound to pick up something else along the way. - will share some photos of this later inthe week

I have scrapped a lot...here are the cards and pages i have done...

I have also signed up for another pay it forward...yes Leah i still have a few months to complete your last one...and the machine is now out and on the table...so it will be in your hands soon...

Back to the pay it forward....with blogging...comes blog surfing...and I have been browsing lots of sites connected to chookyblues swap...when i found Lailas blog....and i can't resist the pay it foward....so here is how it works...It’s based of the concept of the movie "Pay it Forward" where acts or deeds of kindness are done without expecting something in return, just passing it on, with hope that the recipients of the acts of kindness are passed on. So here’s how it works. I will make and send a handmade gift to the first 3 people who leave a comment to this post on the blog requesting to join this PIF exchange. I do not know what that gift will be yet, and it won’t be sent this month, probably not next month, but it will be sent (within 6 months) and that’s a promise! What your have to do in return, then, is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog..

And while i was in the YES mood....I have also agreed to teach 40 8-15 year olds how to scap a page...in october...I hope this will be fun....Bianca will be helping out on this one.

My back has been really sore since going on retreat in Nowra...not sure if it was all the stitching or the beds....but It meant a visit to the chiro...which in turn meant a second visit, you know how it goes...twice weekly visits..LOL well today was the second visit...Bianca had to go to...so she decided to play hookey....yep i offered to drive her into Uni...but nope, she wanted to go to the movies...so we did...we went and saw The Dark Night....it was fantastic...it was nice to just play hookie...and have fun with my Darling Daughter...

Oh well time is getting away with me....i should be cooking dinner and then i have to upload this new stock...best get too it.

Hope you hade a great Tuesday!!!


  1. Hello again,
    I would like to join the Pay It Forward - it sounds like fun! This will be the first time I've done something like this, so do I wait until I receive your handmade item before I post on my blog, or can I post on my blog to pay it forward at any time? Thanks for your help with this! Can't wait to receive my handmade item...everything on your blog looks so lovely! =)

  2. Hi Sonia. Do you still have room in your Pay It Forward? I'd love to join in.
