Friday 27th April

It is raining!!! YAY!!Yesterday it rained continuously. Fantastic. We really need the rain here right now. So dry, gardens dying and even worse the farmers and irrigators are facing very very hard times.
I was listening to the radio today and a lady phoned up to say yesterday when the rain was falling her and 3 friends were leaving a slimmers club at Victor Harbor and the hooked arms and sang “Singing in the Rain” to a few bemused passer-bys!

This weekend is Georgia’s 4th birthday. I am stressing.. I am so used to my step-mum being here to help me get organised!! This year she will still be at home in Tasmania!! Oh well you would think after 3 b’days I would be a little organised, but this party is different. Georgia knows what she wants this year and this year she has 7 little friends coming along. In the past it has been mainly family and 2 little friends!

I have planned a couple of games – the usual pin the tail on the donkey and pass the parcel. Not sure what else to do. The party is only for a couple of hours. Oh did I say I am also nervous about meeting the mums of Georgia’s little friends?? Well I am!

Food wise, because of Georgia’s allergies, it is a little more difficult to cater than just whip up a cake etc… Have to keep in mind, no eggs,no nuts, no sesame and the list goes on.

Kylies Bakehouse are making her cake. Last year I tried with egg replacer and at the last minute it was a flop. Better they make it and it be a great cake, than my efforts! Kylies bakehouse if fantastic for gluten free, nut free, egg free etc. She is totally switched on to being very careful about the ingredients she uses as she has a child too with allergies. Fortunately Georgia is not allergic to dairy and does not require gluten free.

Anyway, after rambling I think I might continue a little longer (ha haha). I made a gorgeous Maze Book the other day for my step-mum for Mothers day and am working on another for mother in law too. Thanks to Tricia Morris – Clubscrap for the directions and the webisode she does, it made it quite easy!

Oh I have ordered a rack for all my papers that has 24 shelves and a dustcover! I can’t wait until it gets here!! Shhhhh don’t tell hubby!

Also, my bestfriend is now a Stampin’ Up consultant (yes I am going to become one too) and I received an order from her yesterday with stamp cleaning gear. Also the ideas book. Wow, the book is fantastic. She had also emailed me to say she was sending something for Georgia and could I wrap it for her birthday! Turns out she had included 3 sheets of chipboard – shapes, labels everything… Hmmm and she thinks I am going to give them to a 4 year old!!! No way.. LOL

So if you are interested in stamping, cardmaking, scrapbooking, then contact me for your supplies from stampin Up. They really are great value and the ideas book is well worth buying.

Please think of me on Sunday when I host this party!!!! Will update you then!

Sunday…

What do we do on a Sunday. Well this Sunday Georgia and I had a lazy day. PJ’s until midafternoon, scrapping, oh and she made a plaster mold and painted it beautifully.

Georgia was so proud of her scrapbooking (she has her own albums!) and today asked me to photograph it with my effort at scrapping!

At age 3 (nearly 4) she is not into adding photos but loves sticking things down and trying to copy mummy.Anyway here is her and my effort today.

Along with Georgia holding her page up:

Anyway we had a great day, scrapping and in our PJ’s until late!!

More Scrapping

Hello again. We had a great Easter and I got some great photos of Georgia doing her Easter egg hunt! Will get around to scrapping them soon 🙂

In the meantime I have done a few more pages over the Easter Break. Being part of challenges on a group for scrapping gives you some incentive to scrap when you are running out of ideas etc.

The other thing that gives you inspiration is joining Club Scrap. I LOVE their papers!

The Paris page is with CS papers and the floral piece is Basic Grey. Beach one is with CS papers and fonts and their stamp too.

Almost Easter

Well it has been a while since I updated. I have been busy with work and scrapbooking and contemplating getting into the stamping side of things as well.

I managed to get a fair bit of scrapping done last weekend. I have discovered a really good club that provides the best quality paper and kits around and that really helped with inspiration.

Anyway, with Easter fast approaching I am looking forward to sharing it with Georgia and we plan to have an Easter egg hunt, bunny rabbit feet and all. Anyone know what the weather is going to be overnight and the next morning (Sunday) ??

I must add, with Georgia being allergic to all nuts and tree nuts it has been an exciting time for “mummy Easter bunny” to go shopping this year. I could not hold back the smile as I got to shop for Easter eggs this year. Finally people are getting IT!! Companies are “getting IT” and there is now a wider choice for children with anaphylaxis to nuts to be able to share in Easter. This year is the first year we have been able to buy Georgia an Easter egg with smarties in it that does not have the “may contain” nuts warning!!!

Anyway enough of my lecturing/rambling.. Here are some of my latests scrap pages. I hope you like them.
