On Saturday 22nd of September my good friend Lexie (aka Lexhar) took me to see Tori Amos at the convention centre in Brisbane...OMFG this woman can perform!! I was just so amazed that she played the keyboard with one hand, the piano with the other and sung and danced at the same time. It was truly incredible and it has prompted me to buy her albums...thanks so very much Karen!!! Luv you chicky!!!

OMG I'm so excited!!

As many of my friends know I am a huge Marilyn Manson fan (betcha didn't pick it if you didn't already know eh?!) and I am going to his concert with Chris and my nephew on the 8th of October. We have seating tickets but that's ok...all I can think of is how I am going to be in the SAME ROOM AS THE MANSON!! I just can't stop my heart from racing everytime I think of it (which is every five minutes!! ROFL) I have friends who teased because I was sick the week the tix went on sale...which meant I could not work...hence no money for tix...but alas the tickets are not sold out! well the floor tickets are but not the seating ones... for $80 a ticket I could be standing at the front door for all I care! but I'm not I'll be seated...for a few minutes then I will be trying to get over the barrier ROFL!! watch me ruin my night by getting arrested :( sigh...what to do!? lol

I worked a full week this week, which is PERFECT! my hands are sore and my back aches but my bank account is sitting pretty!

I have a few things I HAVE to scrap today, mainly things for other people. and I have to get them packed up and ready for postage.

til next time...
here is one of favorite the moment anywayas...please be warned there are explicit lyrics here..
"Irresponsible Hate Anthem"

I am so all-american, I'll sell you suicide
I am totalitarian, I've got abortions in my eyes
I hate the hater, I'd rape the raper
I am the animal who will not be himself
fuck it

Hey victim, should I black your eyes again?
Hey victim,
You were the one who put the stick in my hand
I am the ism, my hate's a prism
let's jut kill everyone and let your god sort them out
fuck it

Everybody's someone else's nigger/I know you are so am I
I wasn't born with enough middle fingers/
I don't need to choose a side
I better, better, better, better not say this
better, better, better, better not tell
I hate the hater, I'd rape the raper
I am the idiot who will not be himself
fuck it

What a trip!!

On Friday 17th August at 6am my girls and I left home for a trip to NSW! we swung by my mum's house to pick her up too - girls weekend away!!
We left South Bris at around 6.30 am, to begin our 10+ hour trip. I had told the girls NOT to ask 'are we there yet?" for at least 10 HOURS...they started it in .. now where was the first q? hmm I think it was around Ballina? which is only three hours into the trip! little brats but they did it to be funny I'm sure!
The scenery along the way was divine! Mum was in heaven driving past and over the rivers. She loves her fishing, my mum, so seeing any water will drift her off into fishing world! lol.
We only saw TWO police cars the WHOLE way there...amazingly.
Coming in to Bulahdelah I was just waiting to see the piano rock that's on Mt Tambourine...I swear the scenery was EXACTLY the same...what do you think? (for thiose who know Mt Tambo that is! ;) )

cool huh?!
We spent the Friday night at 'aunty' Lyn's (not a blood relative but awesome enough to call her aunty LOL) This is the scene through the wondow of the room that my girls and I were in...
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Ahhh blissful. I always loved visiting Bill and Lyn when I was little. So very peaceful around that area. Lyn cooked a wonderful meal for us. We went to bed early because we still had the drive to Pam's the Saturday morning. Mum stayed with Lyn while I went with my girls to Gosford.

I was quite pleased with myself for not getting lost...till we got to..uh...well I'm not exactly sure where we were, but an excellently timed call from Pam and we were on our way (thanks Loz for the directions! lol) Then when we got closer to Pam's I had to call her for help. We were only one street away! YAY!! the party was about to really begin! lol. Pam gave me a beer to get me started, then another then it was off to take some cool pics near some awesome [yet odd] carved stones...

I won't post all the pics, but if anyone can tell me what this horse (below) is doing, please do so!! LMAO!!

Went back to Pam's via the bottle-o...then after that it's pretty much just a bunch of scrap buddies having an excellent time. Loz was amazing! 20 LOs she got done...I was sat next to her and was totally scared! Such an inspiration. Then I had Scrapwitch on the other side of me, who is equally intimidating in the arts department! needless to say I got NOTHING done except a couple of pages for my NSW album, and a LO of Jim Morrison...might have helped if I had photos with me! GRRR what a dick I am eh? had everything else bar the most important thing!!! idiot! lol

Crazymumm, Leababy, kata, scrapalot, webbgod, scrapwitch, and all rock!!! it was amazing to meet you all, and I can't wait to hang out with you guys one day again! thanks so much for having me Pam. You are too too kind, and you have a beautiful family. We really enjoyed being there.

The above photo of me witch and our girls was taken on witch's camera...hope you don't mind me posting it here witch?!

The trip home was not too bad considering it POURED with rain all the way from Pam's to Pacific Palms, then from there to Ballina, after Ballina the rain was a bit lighter, but still rain!
Got home at ten thirty Monday night, and although we had a really wonderfully awesome weekend I have to admit it was good to be home!
I missed my boys...Pam's boys are so adorable, as are all the kidlets that I met ...

I hope one day I have a house big enough to accommodate interstate visitors!!

Some layouts to share

I was going to do the masters for Scrapbooking Memories but I didn't get around to finishing all the tasks because I got sick (yes, so sick I couldn't even scrap!!)

Enjoy! have a great week!

Sunday, 29 July 2007


Well, have I been busy? yes tremendously! I cleaned my bedroom on Wednesday. it took me 5 hours!! un-freakin-believable!! it was atrocious and I figured how am I supposed to get my girls to clean their rooms if I can't even keep my room clean! so now it is so clean and it's my favourite room in the house again for the moment LOL!! I took pics before and after and did a layout on it, but I haven't taken a pic of the layout yet. I printed the before pics in black and white...less shameful I think LOL.

I have been making cards more than anything lately, and making a couple of albums too. It was my aunt's seventieth birthday last week, so mum and I are sending her an album and a card I made. I told mum she could write in the card!! well, my Finnish isn't that great lol... I should put more effort into relearning the language I guess.

I wish I lived closer to my friend lynnie :( her hubby is away for work and well, she is a bit lonely through the week :( I know how she feels I just wish there was somefin I could do :( if you're reading this I'm thinking of you chicky!

I just added Scrapwitch's blog to my check it out. it is sooo good her scrapping is gorgeous!!! Witchy - I will endeavour to send that layout to you this week sometime...I have a billion things to post out and yours is one of them! and lynnie too...luv you guys!

I went to get the girls their Nintendo DSs on Wednesday - little rats!! they were all over me like a rash at the shops when they realised what I was buying...ew!! lol.. j/k of course! but no, the convo went like this..I only asked one thing of them in return...

me : get off me!! (laugh) all I ask is that you do not fight with each other!!
jade: what about with you?
me : *rolleyes* well that's inevitable! we'll always fight!

ROFLMAO!! we all laughed. but they have been so good! and they know that they will get no warnings for having them little blowup and they will lose them for a day...but they are being good - and I am bummed because I wanna play with them too!! ROFL...

well I am really looking forward to going to NSW!!!! mum might be coming with me too because she is worried about me driving that long rive with just the girls. She will stay in Forster so I really don't know if I'll be carless for a couple of days or what... I think she said something about staying at Pam's for the first night or something too...I will have to ask Pam if that's ok first!! they neededn't worry though, my mum is really cool and not judgemental of anything or anyone :D and she isn't a stick in the mud or anything either...just wonder if it's ok with Pammy - I mean I feel bad enough as it is that I may be imposing on them...but I'm sure it'll be ok...Pammy is such a sweet soul, and I feel so happy to know her :)

anyways, I'm off to catch up on Scrapchat because I haven't been online for a few days !

Heids x

This week

Well I am still not 100%. I have been sick since last Wednesday with the flu. Though it isn't the snotty nosed watery eyes flu. It has wrecked me fully. I have, since last week till now had coughing attacks (dry coughs too that just annoy me more than anything!); pain all over my body; headache; joint aches; hot and cold sweats; vomiting (on the first day). I am so glad I can keep it in my mind that it CAN"T last for has to end sooner or later. I just really hate fact that I can't go to work! that pisses me off more than anything else, because I really hate to let people down, and my boss is such a good person in every aspect - she doesn't deserve this...but she is very supportive and says 'don't come in and give it to all of us!!" lol.. Although the three machinists (me and two others - there are only four of us all up!) all called in sick on Monday...Poor Bev :( She text me today asking if I was still alive! lol. I text here back bu then called her anyway - thought it would be more polite. I told her I should surely be ok by Monday. So now I'm hoping that I don't get worse again. I shouldn't ... surely??!! I'm so drained. I just wanna go to bed. Maybe I will soon.

It is my beautiful little nieces' birthday party this Saturday - Amy turned one in June and Saara will be 4 in July - a combined party is definitely easier methinks!. It's a dress up. Apparently I'm not allowed to dress up as a fairy though LMAO! I said I could be the toothless fairy HAHA!!! Mika is going to be Capt Jack Sparrow, Trent will be a cowboy, and my girls will be fairies - Jade reckons she will be a tooth fairy (hence my comment I mentioned earlier) . It will be fun. I just hope I'm not contagious!

well, anyways, I better get going. started to feel a bit tired again.
I will post pics from the party on Sunday.

Thanks for reading for those that do!! Cheers!!

Saturday, 7 July 2007


well, this morning SUX. woke up to tell Chris that I don't think we can afford a huge house adn that we might have to get like a two bedroom or something for a couple of years so we can save up a deposit and he kinda huffed about it and got upset with me that I was talking about it at 5am...that's what I do! so then he goes out side for a ciggie and I go "I'm in charge of this household because I have a clue and you don't and if you don't like it fuck off" so then it ended up in a screaming match about he hasn't even looked for a fucken job since coming home from the states, but yet he was like "as soon as I get back to Oz I'm getting a job fuck this blablabla" yea whatever.
then he calls me a bitch and I call him a C and he gets offended?? ahhhh right ...then I say that i have made some stupid decisions in my life but taking him back is definitely one of them. I juat want my life to run smooth like it did before he moved back in. I honestly don't know what it is. I don't know if it's the fact that we never have money left over for things or what. I know it pisses me off the amount he smokes. I mean it's almost a pack a day and that's just stupid waste of money and health. Well He has told the lady down the shop that he isn't to be allowed to buy smokes as of Wednesday. Going cold turkey he reckons. I scoff. It won't happen. it never has before. hell I can't give up because I like it, but a pack of 25s lasts me three days at least. it's gonna be a fucked day unless we just stay away from each other - he has his racing I have my scrapping...

Tambo retreat

On the 20th of April this year I went to a scrapping retreat on Mt Tambourine with some of the members at Scrapbooking Memories forum. It was so much fun! We went on the Friday and it was over on Sunday - except I had to leave on the Saturday because Chris flew out to USA on the Sunday so we had to go see him off at the airport.

I got drunk within the first half hour I was there I think! I just couldn't wait to get acquainted with all these new beautiful people! I love them all!! I think I swore too much - will remember at the next retreat to not be such a potty mouth *SHAME!!*

here are some pics...

Please vist!

I know I wrote about this in my last post, but it may get skimmed over...

PLEASE COME VISIT SCRAPCHAT!! I have the link in my list of sites I frequent on ---> that side of the page ;) lol

Well, I thought it was about time I did some updating!

I am now a mod at a brand new forum called Scrapchat. It was started by a good friend of mine called mods are all known as Gypsy's angels' and I reckon that rocks right there! lol I will add int he link after I finish this posting.

I have been working here and there which is fab.
Chris has moved back in which is totally awesome! The kids are so much hapier especially Jaana! Her grades have gone up since he came back...daddy's little girl - ain't it sweet!?

anyways, here is a LO I did this morning... am thinking of sending it in to a mag but I don't like my chances because the pics are blurred - I used an effect called 'Dad's old camera' to make them blurry, I love it!

Wow, that was a short three months! (some swearing SORRY!!!)

OK, so Chris left us on the 22nd of April to go to America. A lotta bullshit went down, that I really don't want to get into because it's just SHIT (dumb american CRACK whore that TRIED to start shit anyway - SUCKER!!)... but anyways, instead of staying three months, he had his tickets brought forward and he is home with us where he should be. YAY!!! the kidsmissed him dearly, i missed him dearly and all he wanted to do from the minute he arrived there was come home to us! lol

I haven't had a lotta work lately - but just enough. It's good that I am learning a new style of coat too. My workmate refuses to do them, but If I learn (which I am excited to do!) then it will mean that my hours may just go up a fraction. I just hope I can make them quick enough AND neat enough. These coats are soooooo top of the range! No margin for error really, but I'm happy for the challenge. I can't wait to get a handle on the ropes properly - I'm still sewing with my Ls for Claybourn. TACC I can do with my eyes shut! lol but Claybourn are very different...and very HEAVY omg!! I'm going to have muscles in places that I didn't even know exisisted! lol.

I made a LO of the next retreat we are going on. I know I haven't even posted about the Tambo retreat yet...I will soon! lol... but I just wanted to share this first...
the beautiful Scrapmanda from SM forums has organised the next retreat at is going to be soooo cool because this time I won't have to leave early!! The gorgeous gypsyangel organised the one at Mt Tamborine and I tell ya - I just felt so comfortable with everyone...I hope I didn't embarress anyone LOL

I am a moderator over at Scrapbooking Memories forum now. It is great! I get to delete spam and ban spammers!! muwahahaha...instead of reading the crap! I did have a person trying to make it hard for me at first - by telling me that this other member (all will be un-named - but if you happen to stumble across this - you may know who you are) would try to make it really hard for me...what a twat!? ah well, i hardly talk to her anymore and I can honestly say I'm glad. Yunno I thought i really liked this person - I really did - and who knows IRL we might get along if we ever meet...but online i think she is a bit of a stuck up lunatic TBH!

OH OH OH!!!! I got a new tattoo a week and a bit ago!!! I am so in love with it!! it cost $280 EEK!! but Chris paid half and my half I'd been tucking away bit by bit for yonks!! lol
here it is...

I guess I better post a LO I did in the last couple of weeks...haven't done much scrapping at all while Chris was away...

Happy Scrappin'!!

Friday, 6 April 2007

Happy birthday to me!!

I woke up to have chocolate for breaky YUMMO!!! then I ate half a caramel ring from Brumby's bakery mmmm..... lots of coffee too !!

Chris is going to leave us for three months. He is going to America. I am excited for him, but scared at the same time. I know if I ever get sick he is here to help me, so I will be without my support crutch for a while... I hope he gets over his nervousness though. I'd hate to send him off knowing he is terrified!
I will have to email a link to this blog to him so he can check up what's happening if he gets time that is!
He is going to do some wood burning for a tattooist, and also learn how to do tribal indian tattooing...he wants to finally support his family the way it should be... so it looks like we'll be A-OK after all. I have to admit i do worry that he will fall in love with someone else over there, but if that ends up the case then I will let him fly...then I can move on too...but I hope it doesn't come to that! I know he loves me too much to want to leave me...we'll neither ever find anyone else who will put up with our bullshit the way we do! lol
