Yup that’s right I am over the laptop and trying to post on there so I’ve gone back to the semi reliable desktop! Yesterday I was trying to download some photo’s of teachers gifts I’d made off the camera and I lost the lot yeap you heard right I lost them off the laptop and in my infinite wisdom I had it set to delete after they were downloaded and so they were gone of the memory card to!!
I can tell you they were cute!! Perhaps if I get a chance I’ll make another and photograph it. I’d made 3 different ones and they were all so purdy!
Things have been getting a bit on top of me lately where I am feeling like everything is just to hard but over this weekend I have sat down and worked out a planner/ timetable for my week and scheduled everything in so am feeling much better about it all. I’ve also cleaned up my stamp room and house which was getting me down!
The other distraction I have of late is my new addition to the family (Bella) Seriously look at this face you’d think she was an angel!!!
Well let me assure you looks can be deceiving! We have erected many kinds of containment units over the last few months. Alas she is Houdini reincarnate! She can jump, chew, dig her way out of anything!!! So we have had to bite the bullet and bought a static shock fence! OK dog lovers don’t condemn me here but she has scared a little girl up the road once when she escaped and I’m afraid she will get in trouble and the good ole timber fence is not doing the trick!
Here’s a photo of the kids helping to show her where the warning zone is!
The little flags you see are where the beeps on the collar start if she takes about 2 steps past it she will get a shock from the collar. So far so good. Neil is tempted to get a collar for the neighbourhood kids to keep them out! (not nice)
OK so I know it has been ages and my excuses are poor so I thought I’d treat you to a collection of cards I made using the new set Good Friend for our NEW catalogue launch on the 3rd.
And then last but not least a scrap page as well!
This is a layout I saw on Keeha’s blog ages ago and filed it away thinking yeap one day I’ll do a page with that and finally I did! This is Jess and one of her good mates on her 6th birthday!
With all of these I have used the new incolours cardstock and ink and the new Good Friend stamp set. I have also used the Good Morning sunshine DSP. These items all came from the preorder but Stampin’ Up! did not offer any ribbon in this preorder…..seriously what were they thinking! But luckily I received an invite to a managers function at convention made bu some lovely person at Stampin’ Up! and they used the Kiwi Kiss striped ribbon. So I just sort of borrowed it and made it stretch 3 cards! Thanks Stampin’ Up!
Hope to see you all again soon. If you still stop by sometimes do pop in and say hi so I know your still out there!!!
