Bit of Dexter History

I've been watching all the CSI's since they started. But this year I've lost interest in most shows. With exception of Criminal minds and Bionic Woman. That's all I watch.
Then My Partner in crime Karen.............(Karen and Sharon rhyme) She told me about a show. I watched 2 episodes and that was the end of me..
I'm just hanging to watch each episode every week. I have the first season DVD on its way to my house. Of course I've seen it but I'll now own it.
Our serial killer that kills other serial killers.
He does his homework and only kills those who are guilty.

Oh and he's a bit good looking.

Look at my new pictures

Can you tell I like Dexter, the show isn't even aired in Australia. And I'm up to date. I love it. There's something about him you can't help but like.

Dexter RULES

Family Weekend

What a weekend we've had. Sunday we drove in the Convoy for Kids. It was the first time we'd taken all the kids. And my car too. They have heaps of rides for the kids and I got some awesome shots. I can't wait to scrap them.

Cute kids, Our Utes under Telstra Stadium, and kids being kids running in the water.

What A Wednesday

Someone most excellent came up with the idea of getting our mothers group hall and scrapping all day. So we did. It was awesome.
I completed 3 layouts and finished 2 mths for a calender swap I'm in.
My scrapping soul mates are my scrapping guru's and never ending givers of inspiration, support and great for that scrappers block that you get towards the end of a layout. Girls you were the best part of the day. Of course we were missing some of our gang. We missed them.

Holiday Monday Madness

Well I continued my cleaning bug into my scrap room and finished setting it right. I have everything where I want it to go. I'm now set for Wednesday and our scrap day. I'm so looking forward to it. There's nothing like a day full of scrapping and good company. I think even if I sit and talk all day I'll be a very happy girl.

The kids are excited too. Jack will be with his best bud. I so need to scrap them. Tomorrow I'll be planning all the things I want to get done. I'll have all my page packs ready.

OK the Madness for the day. I have a Coffee table. Whats MAD about that. I guess its more about what holding it up. DRAG TYRES 2 of them. Its very cool. I wasn't sure to begin with, but now I love it. Kids think its awesome too. Shelby keeps cleaning it. Shes such a girl.

The Weekend

Most bathurst weekends Kev doesn't move off the couch. He's planted there till the race is over. Seeing its the only time hes does it I don't care.

But I took the day to clean the lounge room from top to bottom. I sat and watched all the crashes whilst thinking about my next move. I was disappointed there wasn't more crashes. Not that I wanted anyone to get hurt. But it always rains at the end and they all bump into each other.

The kids watched a bit this year too. Of course I still have a thing for Craig Lowndes ever since he drove the Black Silver and green ford. And he won......YAHOO.

I miss bathurst. One day I want to live there. Just not now. We may end up the coast yet.

What an Awesome Friday

Mum wanted to do something whilst she was off work. We got 3 buy one get one free vouchers and off we went.

Featherdale Wildlife Park. Its awesome. All on one level and it only takes 2hrs to get around it.

The roo's where a hit. And this little fellow soaked up the attention. As you do. The peacocks put on a show too. They seamed to be everywhere showing off there feathers, and might I say I was very happy to follow them and photograph them.

I'm looking forward to our next trip. It's so close and cheap with the vouchers. Here's my favourite animal. What a life...hey

Thursday Fun

Imagine my suprise to find a petting zoo in the K Mart complex. The kids thought it was great. A big hit was the brushes to brush the animals with. Jackson now brushes everything.

We took a quick trip up the the Norman Lindsay gallery. I really wasn't sure what to expect but is was beautiful. We saw where he worked etc And Imagine this.........he wrote The Magic Pudding. One of our favourite movies. I was amazing to hear the story of how he came about. we'll be going back there for sure. It was so peaceful. Maddison felt right at home there. She needs to be on land. This is a pic of the Magic Pudding.

My Scrap Space

I am constantly trying to organize my scrap space. Finding the best storage solutions is my never ending mission.

Most of my ribbons are on cards. But in the bright green stripe etc squares are the rest. I need to get them organised so I know what I have. I find alot when I do a clean up I find stuff I didn't know I had. So its almost like going shopping all over again.
I need another one of these for my growing stamp stash.


Canvas for Travis

Elaine's youngest son Travis turned 1 this week. I made him a canvas when he was born, for his Christening, and this is the one I made for his Birthday. I love this paper, of course its Basic Grey how can you go wrong.

What do you think?

He is away

Kev says All roads lead to DENI.................whats that you ask. Deniliquin or Deni is where the big record braking Ute muster is is. It kind of like Kev's home land. He left Wednesday and he'll be back tomorrow night some time.

Of course we're all sick. Because that's what you do at the beginning of the school holidays.

I love holidays. No rush to be anywhere and PJ's all day if we want.

Whilst sick and kids are glued to the TV I've been cleaning my scrap room. And re organising it. Like always I've found some cool stuff I forgot I had. I'll take some pics when its done to share.

Watch this space

I completed a Challenge

On one of my swap groups we have a very cool challenge.

You start with a sketch. The first person crates a layout from in. They
then send a photo or scanned image to the next person of there layout. They then send
the image of the layout to the next person. They in turn create a
layout from this layout. And so it goes on until all those
participating have had a turn. at the end we put them on display to see how
the process changed from the original layout.

Here's mine..................I found this so quick to do.

Fighting Fit

At long last I am healthy again. It took a long time. I was so over it I can tell you.

Lots has happened in the last few weeks.

I have updated my technology, with a new laptop. Its fast and very awesome. Of course it came with Vista, and every time it asks for permission I am reminded of the MAC and PC ad.

I have many thing to report, share, photograph. My latest storage constant quest for an organised scrap space. Will it ever end.

I'll be back this evening.......Till then

Peace, Love and Mung beans baby

Health Saga continues.......

Since my last post not much has changed. Like most people in Sydney I have hopped on the merry-go-round of sickness, and I want to get off. I've had the tummy bug and nausea for many days which quickly changed to the head cold thing.

I'm so over it.

It has however given me the opportunity to scrap some cool pages. How you may ask. Well when you have a temp or can't sleep cause you sleep all day you tend to stay up all night. I seem to be able to focus very well when I'm sick. One very cool side affect I guess.

I have many layouts to share.

Will return when I'm better, although the house look like a bomb hit it so I may be a while.

Stay healthy

I haven't disapeared

I had such great plans this week to do stuff, with the kids and for myself. But it all went to hell. Tuesday I woke up with a very sore throat. The DR misdiagnosed and to put a long story short, the threat of hospital scared my body well......or at least enough to stop that @#$% stay.

I'm still not right......but I started eating again today. I've lost 4kg in 4 days. Not bad.

I shall return when school does and show you all my holiday layouts.

Cowra Japanese Garden

It was so pretty. I can only imagine what it would be like in spring. Amazing I bet. we bought fish food to feed the Koi fish. Some where huge. Kids loved it. Of course I took heaps of pics to scrap of course. It seems that I even take photos to scrap and with a layout in mind.

The kids took turns of hitting the Dong, or big bell. Not sure what it was really. But it made the best sound. Perhaps I should get one to call the kids. How cool would that be. And husbands that work on there cars

Grenfell Concert

It was great. Sitting listening to great music with my family with me.

This photo is of the stage and of course a rainbow. We love rainbows. Shelby has been drawing them since she could. It was freezing and there were so many people.

We bought the CD Spirit of the bush. We listened to it all the way home. We had a few showers that would last for 5mins and then be gone for about 1/2 hr. But the last shower lasted for some time. it poured. we sat under our umbrella's and couldn't move. The kids made a cubby under the umbrella's. They had so much fun in there. Just as kids do.

The Big 6 Years

Rain Rain Rain

Oh the rain. We some need it. But how many times am I going to have to dry kids shoes.

Where inside so that means SCRAP time. I cleaned up my scrap table. Haha I have one under all the mess. I have a new place to put all my paper. Its sooooo cool. I'll take a pic and share.

I'm off to scrap...........

"Scrapping is what air is to the body. Breathing for the soul"

That's my deep thoughts for the day.

16 Layouts

I had to clean my scrap area, so I could use it. In the process I found all the layouts I'd done so far this year. 16 How awesome is that. A few are from Disney World. WOW that was the best holiday I'd ever been on. I've only been back for 5 weeks but I feel like I only came home yesterday.

My goals for this yr are as follows:

52 layouts.....1 a week.
I think I'm a bit behind
Loose weight..........First goal 10kg
Move house.
Keep the house clean......LOL how funny is that. It interferes with my scrapping time.

I'll share some of my layouts when I get them photographed.

What a Weekend

What fun I had helping Kev dig trenches to drain away the water. We had one trouble spot so in true Kevin style, he used the cars to help dig. How you may ask..........He spun the wheels to dig the holes. He made some good smoke in the process. As you do. It was hard work but I laughed so much.

Monday.......Queens Birthday we had our big clean up outside. We saw worms, bugs, red backs etc. Kev decided to burn some cardboard boxes. He insisted it was all good. 20mins later the Fire Engine turned up. Kids were so excited.

I'm looking for a job and we'll be looking to move out......sooner rather than later. Into a house. With a back yard.

Lets hope the week brings new beginnings.

Friday, 8 June 2007 experiment

For my CJ (Circle Journal) with OZswap till ya drop I used a sketch as my theme. I wanted to see what everyone did with them. Nothing or changed it was a great experiment. It was great.

They all looked fantastic. Everyone has changed in a very small way. Some completely different.

I want to add more layouts to it. Send me yours.

For my next CJ I'll be picking a different sketch.

Well I added a pic's. How techno advanced am I........there's hope for me yet.


Sharon G

The first post

Well I have one cause everyone else does too. lol A lame reason but I'm not sure what all the fuss was about so I'm jumping in feet first to have a go and see what the fuss is about.

I know I'll be posting all my layouts and anything else I can think of. Seeing I'm never going to be famous I'll never have to worry about who going to read it. I think.

That's about it for now. I have no idea what I'm doing but lucky I know enough people who can help......I think.
