Design Team Submission

I thought I would share with you the card I submitted for the Design Team at The Stamp Spot.
I love, love, love this Teresa Collins stamp. And that little mirror and the pom poms make me smile.

Thanks for stopping by,

Design Team Member

....for The Stamp Spot. Woohoo!

I am really excited to be joining Marcia and her team of designers for The Stamp Spot. I always love a reason to create and this should give me the perfect opportunity to do so.

So keep an eye out here and on The Stamp Spot blog for my creations using goodies from Marcia's store.

We have finally finished up at our old house and are happily living amoung what feels like a million boxes. I got to create a little last night and that was nice. But I can't wait to be all organised and back at my craft table every day. Unfortunately I don't have internet at the new house yet, I have had to come to McDonalds to update here and check my emails. So I wasn't prepared with any photos of creations, so sorry for no picture today. But will hopefully be connected up late next week and I will be back to share some crafty goodness then.

Thanks for stopping by.

Bitter Sweet

With all the excitement of moving to our new property I completely overlooked how I would feel about leaving this place. Tonight will be Jackson's last night of sleeping at this home. Tomorrow he is off on a holiday to Tasmania with Nanny (scary for me in it's own right) and I realised as he got ready for bed that when he returns he will not be coming back here. Sob!

This is what my little boy looked liked when we moved in back in 2003.
He was three and a half years old and already a big brother to one. And this is when I put him to bed tonight for the last time here, in this house.
Nearly six years between the two photos. Man, that has gone soooo fast. Sigh! Such an emotional time. I am sure I will go through it all again in a few days when the rest of us spend our last night here.

New Home & a New Baby

The new home is ours.................not the baby :)

Today we received the keys to our new home and permission to move in early. Yay!!!! I am sooooo excited.

We pottered around up there a little bit and the kids ran around having a great time. Tomorrow I will start cleaning and this weekend coming we will begin the heavy work. I can't wait to start the next chapter of our lives here.

Now, the new baby is my cousins. She had a baby boy this week and my Mum is off to see her and ordered a special baby card.

Hope she likes it.

Loving these Jillibean Soup Journalling Sprouts (spots). They are so cute. And the Tim Holtz adage tickest. Mmmmm.

Off to pack some more boxes.

Cardmaking in the Chaos

The chaos of moving house that is!

I have packed up most of my crafting supplies (gasp!!) and only have a select few things out that I couldn't bear to pack yet. After all I still have just under 2 weeks to go - I couldn't go without any supplies.

Here are some cards made with some new goodies I have picked up lately:
Simple, quick cards and I hope they bring you some 'Delight'.
Thanks for stopping by.
