The City is Back

Just a quick note to let you know we are all very excited because the Scrapbook City site is slowly returning to normal! The message board is back up and running and the gallery is on its way too! Yay!

Quick One

Just a quick note tonight, I really need to get into bed! Spent most of today at the Paper Crafts Festival working on the Scrapbook City stand with Sara. We did have a fun time! But, I am sure that Kerri said it would be pretty quiet! I guess lucky for them it was a bit busier than that! The time flew past! I was very tempted to buy more things on my way out...but I resisted! Knowing I could go back to the shop and pick up some of the goregous new things there! I did shop on Saturday with friends Deb and Jo and spent enough! I am feeling inspired to create too (just read Sara's blog!), but it will have to wait til tomorrow, sleep is more important right now. The girls took along the houses we had decorated (mine is pictured below) and it was really cool how much interest there was in them! I feel almost famous now! Anyway, off to bed the screen is starting to get blury! Thanks for dropping by!

Need to Vent

I am starting to think that all the idiots were out and about today....especially those in cars....Well I suppose I had better explain....It started this morning, I was backing out of a carpark after dropping in to a local ATM, and someone behind in another carpark just started to reverse out without looking behind at all! If they had they would have seen that I was HALF WAY OUT! Lucky I was looking otherwise we would have hit....This idiot continued all the way out without looking behind at all. The passenger, his wife I am guessing saw me but looked blankly at me when I started yelling that he didn't look at all behind him and that I was already halfway out when he started to reverse...AGHHHHHHH.....Then I had to follow behind him and his erratic driving til the next set of lights....I guess at least his other bad driving put my mind my at rest knowing he probably does this sort of thing to everyone...... small consolation though. I have never been angry enough to want to get out and abuse someone until today.....Lucky for them I am in control of myself and I didn't (probably lucky for me too, last thing I want is a police record for road rage or something). I feel somewhat better for venting here. But there were more idiots out there after that, everywhere...one of those days I guess. On a better note, Andrew comes home from Sydney tomorrow and he doesn't have to go back! YAY!!!!! I am so relieved that he doesn't have to go away again.

This is another recent DT layout. I have used some of the great new Scenic Route papers.

This is one of my more recent projects for Scrapbook City. It is a cute little paper mache house that I have covered in the new Basic Grey Pheobe papers.

Well, this is Niamh, on her birthday! Now she is 8! They grow up all too quickly!

This is Liam doing his "cheese" for the camera! He is really funny, when he is sick of photos being taken he tells me "no more see Liam" !!! Such a cutie!

Just love this one of Erin. It was taken on her birthday. I just had to convert it to B&W and give it a grungy border!

Thought I had better use the blog!

It has been just over two months since I set up this blog and I thought I had better start using it! Especially since people from the scrapping community have links to it! Can't let people down! Well, it has been a pretty hectic two months. Especially where work is concerned (Scrapbook City). There have been no end of "issues" with the web site. Just when you think things are starting to improve something else jumps in and messes it all up again. I guess the important thing is not to dwell and look on the positive side. It will all be up and running again (soon I hope) and then we can work on the plan of making it one of the best sites around! I have to admit I am really missing my online community. I enjoy catching up with these people and seeing the amazing work they have to offer. On the home front....Andrew has spent the last 5 weeks in Sydney (home on the weekends) and it is wearing pretty thin on us all, especially Andrew. He has this week and next and then he finishes with that company, has a break and then onto a new job! Thank goodness! Life has been pretty stressful in this current job. We have been trying to win the lotto so he could just quit, but like that was ever really going to happen! The kids have settled really well into the school routine. Niamh is now grade 3 and Erin has just started grade 1. Liam is settling into the daycare routine also, he is only there 2 days a week which is enough for him, and me! I am off to the Paper Crafts festival on Saturday! Yay! A day of drooling over all the cool new stuff! Then on the Sunday I will be working at Scrapbook City's stand. Hopefully I will get to meet some of the many lady's from the shop while I am there too! I have been getting into my photography a bit more lately. Really trying to understand all the features of my new camera, and work out the best settings for things! I got a great few shots of Liam the other day. Will post them in here to show you. Well that is a brief summary of the last two months! Now I will make a date to update regularly! See Ya!
