Kaiser Wall Frame

My eldest daughter Sarah has made this lovely Kaiser Wall frame of her and boyfriend Henry. She's used Doodlebug Spot Glitter Cardstock and lots of bling (kaiser). Has turned out really lovely and is now hanging on the wall in her room.

Chrisco Hamper

Well not only did we lose our food in the fridge with the Brisbane Storms the other weekend ($400 worth of groceries) which we had just bought that afternoon.

Millie (my mother-in-law) had bought us a family present for Christmas being a Chriso Hamper. I knew it was being delivered on the weekend but there was no set day or time.

I had not realised that it had been delivered to us until Saturday afternoon when I was putting away pool toys etc getting ready for the next big storm when I noticed these 2 boxes under our back deck. I opened the boxes to find all this defrosted food and gosh it stunk. Nothing was able to be saved. We then found in the mail box the delivery card which had been put in there at 4.30pm (approx) but I had already cleared the mail box much earlier on Friday so I had no idea that they had come.

I would have thought that delivering at that time of day they would put the card under the front door rather than in the mail box. I had been home all day on Friday until 4pm when I had to take Sarah to work and of course this is when they delivered.

Check out all this wonderful food gone to waste

Millie contacted them about it and they have now refunded her money, so we will go shopping ourselves for new hampers.

Circle Journal Layout

Managed to complete another page for a CJ on the weekend. "Favourite Colour" - all shades of Pink LOL!!

Collage Layout

This layout was done by Shannon and myself. Shannon edited all her photos in picnik adding all these cute things to her photos. I then took the images and made it into a collage and printed out as 1 complete photo. Too easy and looks great!!

Brisbane Storms

Well it's been a week of really bad weather here. Sunday afternoon Brisbane was hit pretty bad and a number of areas received a great deal of damage. Albany Creek was hit pretty bad too with many trees down, roads were cut, power lines down, flooding. Power was out for 24 hours and we lost our food in the fridge.

We were hit again last night and now again tonight with more on the way. Tonight not quiet as bad as previously but bad enough considering the damage already done from the previous storms.

Here in Albany Creek tonight we had some small hail, heavy rain and wild wind. Once again we were caught out in our car, this time it wasn't quite so scary and it didn't last anywhere near as long. When we got home I grabbed my camera and started taking pic's. Most of what I have however is after it had passed. I wasn't stepping outside during LOL!!

Take a look at the photos, taken from my front verandah.

The first 3 photos below are of the 1 lightning strike.

A beautiful Gift from a beautiful friend

On Friday afternoon I received this parcel from Lea, inside was this beautiful handmade gift of a scrapbooking organiser and hanging monogram with a beautiful friendship verse on the back with so much meaning, it almost brought me to tears.

Thank you so very much Lea for this beautiful gift and being such a beautiful friend, your gift means so much to me and I will treasure them.

This is my beautiful gift from Lea, I just love them.

Bathing Kookaburra

Well this was a lovely sight to see. This Kookaburra having a swim in our pool and doing a little baking to dry off. However, another bird didn't like the kookaburra being there. The kooka flew off and landed on the neighbors garden shed with a spinning whirlygig LOL!! Now you would think it wouldn't stay there wouldn't you LOL!! Take a look at the video below, too funny.
