I think the one real joy I'm finding from NOT being on Design Teams
or going into competitions is I can both blog when I want and fancy it!
And I don't have to 'schedule' posts. That's a HUGE change for me!
So, this week I have mail going out.
I was blessed [NOT REALLY!] when my DIL, Neri, gifted me some
vintage 6x6 paper pads.
So, what to do with them? Well, since I'm a member of a 'Happy
Mail' FB group...I asked if anyone liked vintage mail & I got a
Yes! from a fellow scrapper..... I don't think she reads my blog,
so I figure you can take a peek at this pocket letter happy mail that's
heading her way :)
Thanks to SIAN from HIGH IN THE SKY
for hosting this idea about mail... I sorta went overboard with the trim...
And I managed to use a tassle, too, Lynette J! Miracles..... ;)
Speaking of fellow scrappers...Margy M, I used some of those CUTE resin
moulds you created! And below, you can see I've actually stamped,
and stenciled etc before adding the little bits and bobs:
Now, if you can bare to look at a Christmas page. SORRY - not really [again!],
then this is of my son & his family at the Carols in 2016.
I wanted to make it like a pin-board, where the photos are 'pinned'
at random. I think it worked?
It was for the Other Grandfather & his partner so they can hang it up
for a while, & enjoy memories of that night :)
I've also made some Christmas cards. SERIOUSLY. No shaking your head now.
Did a pile of Very Simple ones, but I didn't bother photographing them 'cos they
were soooo simple!!! How many you ask? Only 7. They were so easy, y'see. I
didn't MEAN to do that many!!
Righto, tomorrow I'm off to Stampin' Up with my Mum. Friday Tom has
his cataract operation. Mum was supposed to have her hip done the following
Wednesday, buuuuut they rang today & put it off til March. She was less than
impressed, so hoping something can be done before then. Time will tell.
We also have Ollie's 2nd birthday party on the weekend. Busy life atm,
which is all good.
Makes the focus on the HOT WEATHER not quite so intense.
Who am I kidding? It's awful. But it makes for good photos if you're
up at 6:30am cos it's too hot to sleep, so pop on down for a beach walk.
First 'pano' attempt!
Yup! That's Wally caught in the sun's ray by the water's edge!
Right, on that note, I hope this warms up my European friends...
not sure what's happening in the USA!
And I hope the water brings a bit of coolness to you other hot and bothered
Aussie folks. Apparently it's going to be close on 40C AGAIN in a couple of
Oh....& since Sian's into 'firsts' / new things...apparently it's the hottest overnight temperatures
for 2 of our nights this year since records began. One was 33C, from memory.
Blessings one & all ~ Lizzy ♥♥♥
