More jars! n stuff

Hello people. Well I decided rather than just plugging myself and Manda for our goods, I'd actually share some other stuff for a change LOL!
I have a tonne of Moccona coffee jars that I've been washing and doing stuff with. There are sooo many ideas out there!
I have made two lolly jars for the boys' teachers so far, and used the lids for the huge jars as tealight candle holders... the big jars also I'll be altering and making into cookie jars as gifts for Christmas. We even used a large one as a fish bowl for Jaana's fighting fish!! It's very VERY well scrubbed though! lol. We kept the plastic part of the lid and added slits...this is to keep our cats' paws out! lol
We made money jars too

I scavenged some jars off mum too, not that we didn't already have HEAPS...they were behind her shed and I think they've been there for years!!! but I have soaked them (I use hot water with Laundry powder ;) the sticker pretty much slides off itself after about half an hour!)

I have completed the February 'SHE' challenge at Scrapchat...LOL only a few more months to catch up on now LOL...

And just because I can't help myself...for those you haven't had a chance to visit Miss C is the clear stamp storage album I have created to sell..

There is more info on my other blog!

Manda's new product

So now you have to vist Made X Manda again (it's in your bookmarks ;) lol) to see her gorgeous little coin/card purses. I so need one of these! They are too cute NOT to have one!


I hope you have all visited Miss C Design too?! GET OVER THERE! lol

I have added a new design to my clear stamp albums - you're going to love it!!!

The link is in your bookmarks ;) really, it's in my last posting here :D


Today has been a really hot day hasn't it? 35 degrees celsius in our kitchen and it's cooler inside than out here too! EEK! Not sure how I will cope...might have to lock myself into our bedroom with the air con haha.

I need to get onto the challenges I have to catch up in over at Scrapchat . I have rejoined, I was a bit afraid at first but the ladies there are very forgiving and have warmly welcomed me. Now to PROVE to them I'm for real lol. I know they'll see I am a very different person nowadays.

Anyways, I better go get ready to get the squids from school :D
till next time!

Don't forget to go over and see miss c design ;)

Made X Manda

If it's a new camera strap you need, or if the one you have doesn' match what you're wearing - (HEY! it's all about style...and like my BF always says "ACCESSORISE ACCESSORISE ACCESSORISE!!" LOL... ) You need to head over to Made X Manda and pick up a new camera strap or two! They are fabulous and such great quality..I will be investing in some...just as soon as I gets me a new camera that is! LOL. I guess I could get one for my film camera...I don't use it often but it would look good on the shelf! hehe...


Made X Manda spread the word!

Watch this space!!

It worked!!
Are you looking for a safe and stylish way to store your clear stamps? Are you having trouble with the stamps falling out of the acetate sleeves (or is that just me??lol)? Don't want to carry too much bulk and weight when it's crop time and you have to travel?
Well fear's coming!! The solution you've been dreaming of!

I've been scrapping!

digi scrapping lol...

Went to see Saw VI on was awesome!!!!

Murray painted the boys room on Tuesday. The feature wall is Caltex red and they love it! I reckon it's just awesome,

Went to get new bunk beds for the boys today. I must say the drive up the coast with my father was rather pleasant! The bunks match the red wall perfectly. Just have to get a Transformers rug and a Transformers doona set for Mika and their room is done. I will post pics of the finished room after it's finished lol.

Jade made cupcakes on Thursday - don't they look yummy? All by herself too!! Flowers n all!!

I took a couple of pics of our yard this morning ... the lawn looks a little sad but it's definitely getting betta!

Anyways, better go now, there's rain acomin and I wanna scrap! lol

It's a new era...

I've been doing a lot of thinking lately. I haven't been as active online for the past year. I have had a lot of changes in my life, and now that I am settled into a very comfortable lifestyle and I am happier than I ever thought was humanly possible, I have sorted out a routine and am ready to be a part of an online community again. I have decided I will wash clean the slate of the past, and start all over again. I hold no opinions or grudges. I have gotten rid of any animosity I had in the past - it was there, I suppose, because I was in such an unhappy place and I could never find the joy in a thing besides scrapping (I'm talking pre-Murray days!) I was, in short, an asshole, and now I know it I want to extend my apologies to those who feel they need it from me. I am so sorry. I am not in the business of hurting people intentionally but I have hurt a lot of people in my lack of contact with them. I have just rejoined scrapchat, awaiting approval...hopefully things will be ok.
I miss Lynnie so much but I haven't been in touch with her for so long I doubt she will forgive me this time. Yunno I could have called too, but I haven't. There is no other reason for it than I just get carried away with life in my immediate surroundings and forget to go outside that. I still have some confidence issues, and occasionally I can't even call my bank or Teslstra if there is an issue - other times I can call with guns ablazing...I honestly do not know why I am that way, i just am I always have been...I remember as a kid if there was something in the paper I wanted to buy, I would make my dad call the number while he was trying to make me do it - in the end I was left deflated and without the item in question. So it's a lifelong problem, which has upset people along the way...I know it's 'not hard to pick up the phone' but for me, sometimes, really it is!

So there it is the first day of the rest of my life (again LOL!!!! but in a different area of my life)

Till next time!
