I've been tagged - by a celebrity!!

Oh, so maaaaybe she isn't ACTUALLY famous, but she seems famous to me - I stalk her blog, and she tagged ME!  How cool!   Thanks FRAN for tagging me - I LOVE games.  Actually, I'm really really competitive a quiet conservative game player - pretty much don't care if I win or lose!  yeah RIGHT - ask my BIL!

Ok, here's 7 random facts about me....

1.    I went on a honeymoon cruise 16 1/2 years ago, and ended up getting a cabin with TWIN BUNKS!!  Fun. Not! Actually, the NOT fun part was the seasickness we both got - ended up wasting 3 days not being able to get out of bed - and NOT for the usual reasons you stay in bed all day on your honeymoon - we were SICK AS!

2.    In my previous life (did I actually HAVE a life before children??!) I was a Travel Agent, and got to go on heaps of cool trips overseas.  I met two of my still best friends working in my first Travel Agency.

3.   The two best friends (that I mention in the above fact) and I ended up all getting pregnant with our first babies and due within TWO WEEKS of each other - even though we hadn't see each other for ages - how bizarre is that??

4.   I hate quiet.  Yep - I feel claustrophobic and panicky if I'm at home and there is no other noise.  I love having the radio on all the time, and at the moment I'm listening to music through my PC from Alyssa's blog, as well as I have the radio on in the lounge with another station. 

5.  I HATE having the t.v and the radio on at the same time - drives me INSANE.  Nuts huh??

6.  I've broken two bones in my life - an arm fracture when I fell off my horse, when she tried to jump a bull (yep, a BIG bull) that was blocking the path we were galloping along.  I landed ON the bull, then the thistle bush.  My mother took me for an x-ray, but the Dr said I was fine, so went to school for 3 days with a fractured arm!  Ha!   The second time I broke my little toe by walking into the corner of the dresser at my Mum's house.  It looked dislocated, and the lovely young Dr presumed it was, so tried to relocate (??) it by yanking on it, making me cry, and my Mother said "Now look what you've done - you've made her cry!" (I was about 23 years old!) -  I can still hear her saying that.  Sooo funny - Now. The Dr then asked if we could x-ray it, and when he saw it was broken, he asked if I was going to sue him.  Should have!

7.   And number 7 - since we have been married, we have lived in  8 different houses (as well as living with Mum & Dad once while waiting for our house to be ready).  I LOVE packing up a house - as long as the kids aren't with me, and in fact my sister, 'cos she makes me throw out all sort of useful things!!  Hi Sharlene!

Ok, here's the 7 RANDOM people I'm tagging....  Hope you can all play!








That's all folks! 

Just for fun

Yes, sometimes I do make cards "just for fun" - I've been inspired by TRUDI who is working through her favourites that she has saved, and actually MAKING some of them - I'm shocking!   I save so many cards that I just LOVE, but don't usually get around to making them, so this was one of those.  A super simple card that I still think needs 'something' in the space at the top, but just kinda going to leave it as is now - unless you have any ideas for what I can do??

Oh So Lovely 001

Just beyond the deck that is outside the window are about 10 ducks, who seem to be one of the few who are really enjoying the weather!   You know that I love the rain, but when it's coooold as well, then I don't love it.  I really need to move somewhere lovely and warm, like Greece!  There's a thought!  Hope you have a fantastic day.

Don't forget - any of you who are coming along on Saturday or Sunday to my Christmas Classes, please let me know if you are intending on bringing along your favourite Christmas Plate (of food!) so I can put you in the draw for the inkpad.  Sarah - looking forward to tasting some of your goodies!!

Guess who's giving away blog candy??

While cruising around other blogs, looking for inspiration for my Christmas Class THIS WEEKEND, I found Renee's blog, and discovered that she is giving away Blog Candy - simply check out her blog, leave her a comment, and you are in the draw.  Cool huh??  Go check her out HERE

Sorry, I've been waaaay to busy getting ready for my classes this weekend to be doing much to show you - I'll have lots to show you next week though - once this rush is over!  OK, so I might just give you a little peep at one of the cards..

 Christmas Peep 001

I know - the colours suck, but that's what you get at  this time of night.  Been a very long day - went to my first appointment this morning at 10.00am, but then found out that it was at 1pm, and I'd forgotten!!!  Duh!  So that sort of threw me for the morning.   So I popped into a friend's house down the road for a surprise visit.  Surprise indeed - poor Megan and all her family, except Eloise, were ill.  Here I was popping in for an unannounced visit for coffee, and these poor guys were all sick.  Shame - I really really wish that you guys all get better soon.   We missed you today Megan!    I muddled around for a couple of hours to fill in the time, then went out to my appointment, which was loads of fun (thanks Helen!), collected kids from school, then went to miniball.  At miniball, I saw that Mason was a bit wheezy, and taking quite a few big breaths, but he looked fine, and got around the court just fine.  Decided to go to the supermarket and pick up something easy for dinner (two beautiful roast chickens, and all the roast vegetables AND gravy - YUM!!).  In the carpark, as I packed the groceries into the car, Mason suddenly started crying, and gasping.  Oh NO!!  Poor kid was having a mild asthma attack, and was panicking.   Stink - I threw everything (including the lovely hot roast) into the boot, and raced towards home.  On the way, I of course hit 5.00 traffic, and everything seemed painfully slow, so I decided to go into the emergency clinic to get something to help him right away.  That would be right away after the receptionist has found us on her data base, and while the nurse then decides to take a history, and then while we wait for the Doctor to see us for 30 seconds and confirm what we had told them - that he was having an asthma attack, and needed a nebuliser.  MAN!!   Very frustrating.  I'm not good at watching my kids cry and puff while trying to breath, but I seemed to be the only one who was struggling with that!    Anyway, now that I've got that off my chest, we had the neb, and were sent home with a "he's ok now" (the most words that the Dr actually said all-together).   Nothing like a lovely bedside manner huh??   My dear little Riley said to me while Mason was waiting with his neb "Mum, do only brownies get asthma?"   I answered "No Riley - anyone can get asthma", and he said "Even Whiteys??"  He is sooo funny - he thinks that Mason & Blake are "brownies", and me and him are "whiteys", just because his skin is paler than his brothers.    I'm sure my MIL would be shocked if she heard him talking about himself as a whitey!  He's more Maori than the rest of us are - eats Kina straight from the shell at the seashore, loves snapper for breakfast, and LOVES whitebait!   Well, long story nearly finished - we did manage to eat the beautiful roast dinner - even convinced my DH that I had made it, not bought it, just by taking it out of the packaging! LOL.   Everyone else asleep now, and hoping that all will be well again tomorrow.  There's a storm outside, with lightning, thunder & rain.  Lovely to be inside.

Hope you are warm & dry - enjoy your night.

Scrappin' Sunday

Good afternoon everyone.  A lovely rainy afternoon to be home scrappin.  YAY!   Two of my boys are asleep after a busy weekend, and Riley is playing at Parker's house.   I LOVE being inside when it's raining.  Love it!  But very soon I have to go OUT in the rain - that's not so great.  Even worse, is I'm making an effort, and going to a circuit class at the gym with a whole lot of squash people, who are all desperately trying to get a little edge over the competition before our regional competitions next month.  LOL.  Desperate, yep, that's what I'll be feeling during the class - desperate to get out of there and go home!  

I've been playing here with some pictures and layouts, and I found the simplest one was the one I liked the most, so here is this weeks layout.

Scrapbooking 005













This little baby is one of the big boys who is currently asleep - he sure doesn't look like this anymore - he's 10!  My apologies - I used a Simply Scrappin' Kit from the last catalogue on this page, but the colours were just perfect, and the scrappin kits are soooo easy to use, so I kinda just didn't worry about that!

RECIPE: Stamps : Baroque Border Wheel, Think Happy Thoughts.  Cardstock/Ink : Blue Bayou, Chocolate Chip, River Rock.  Accessories : Cherished memories Rub Ons, Jumbo Eyelets, 3/4", 1 1/4" & 1 3/8" circle punches.

Enjoy your night - stay out of the rain if you possibly can!



Saturday, June 21, 2008


Yes - we are having a new mini out on the 1st August (which isn't that far away), and today I received my preview copy of it!    YAY!   Love getting that sneak peek at things early  - the joys of being a demonstrator!  You are going to LOVE it.  I'll be having a special event at the start of August, with some great offers for purchases from the new mini, and making some cool cards with these sets of course.  Dates will be confirmed shortly!

Have a great Saturday!

In The Spotlight

Good afternoon.  Here is a quick card that I made with one of the level 2 hostess sets - In the Spotlight.  Helen kindly let me borrow her brand new set to have a play, so the pressure was on the come up with a card, and of course, the more you try, the worse your ideas get!   Nothing seemed to work, and after throwing aside the first few attempts, this card came together really quickly - about 5 minutes before I left to go to a workshop, and then have lunch with Helen.  Amazing!In The Spotlight 001














RECIPE : STAMP SETS: In the Spotlight (Hostess Level 2), Baroque Motifs.  CARD/INK: Elegant Eggplant, Certainly Celery, Whisper White.  ACCESSORIES: 5 Petal Flower punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, Paper Crimper, Celery 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Gold Brads.    Notice the paper crimping??  I finally bought myself a SU Paper Crimper, and I just love it.   Really don't know why I kept putting it off now.   I've just had a box of SU delivered to my door, so look out for some new cards over the weekend (DH is working all weekend) that I make with some of the new stamp sets I ordered.  Can't wait to play!   Now, back to washing windows, and hanging out washing.  Yes, I know.  I don't WASH windows, but this morning, I just couldn't warm up, so decided to do some manual labour, and that did the trick.  AND now my windows are clean.  Hopefully.   The proof will be about 4.00pm when the sun hits the big ranchsliders at the front of our house - then I'll see if I really cleaned them, or just moved the dirt around into different patterns! LOL. 

Have a great Friday



Oh, and BTW, I didn't burn the roast last night.  I undercooked it!  Had to put everything back in the oven, in order to avoid giving my family all food-poisioning!  Thanks Mum & Dad for your patience, and for looking after the boys!  FMILY


Thursday, June 19, 2008


Thanks to my wonderful proof-readers, Kim & Helen 8-) 
Slight changes to the dates for all classes.   OK, so everyone is allowed to have a senior moment every now and again, and I just happened to have mine all at the same time, making mistakes & double booking for every class date!    Lucky for me, someone else knows my life better than me, and has let me know.  Thank you so much...
Have a great day - I've had a fab one, cuddling lots of children, from a 6lb, 6week old twin boy (just delightful!) to a 5 month old boy (so very very sweet) to a one year old little doll.   WOW  Lucky me.  I'm now off to put the pork in the oven for my parents for dinner tonight (here's hoping I don't burn it like last time - even my DH wouldn't eat the last roast I made), then out for a fantastic evening with The Jewel Company tonight, where I get to get all glammed up and play ladies for a change.  Really looking forward to it.

Muuuum... Did you...

Don't you love the way kids ask you questions?   This morning, we were talking about what year the boys were born.  Riley (6yrs) said :

"Muuum, Mason was born after me, 'cos his birthday is in May, but he's older than me". 

Me : "Yes Riley.  Mason was born in May, and you were born in February, but you were born in different years"

Mason (8yrs) : "Yeah Riley - I was born in 2000, and you were born in 2002.  And Blake was born in 19....   Mum, what year was Blake born again?"

Riley : "The 19th Century!   Aahhhhhh hhaaaaa haaa"

Me : "Blake was born in 1998"

Mason : "1998.  WOW.  Mum, did you even have electricity in 1998?"

Riley : "Or playstations?   Or SUV's?

Me : "What's an SUV??"  (and how does my six year old know more than  me already??)

What a laugh - makes you feel really really old when your kids think 1998 was when the dinosaurs roamed the earth!

Well, back to the cards now - thought I'd better post the full card that I gave you a sneak peek at last week.

3D Class 006 

Here it is closed...








3D Class 009 



And half open... 

See how the butterfly is sliding across?










3D Class 007And fully open. 









This card is fantastic - such a cool idea.  It's called a Peek-A-Boo card, and is NOT difficult - once you get your head around the instructions.  Probably a card that is best made in a class (unless you are one of those really clever people who can understand instructions! - NOT me!)   Anyway, HERE is where I found the most fantastic tutorial, over on Michelle Ide's blog.  Thanks for the fantastic easy instructions.  I just changed the square punches to circles, but other than that - everything is pretty much the same.   Have a go!

Guest cardmaker

Good morning!   I was thrilled to receive an email recently from the very talented Leanne Gally from Lepperton showing me some of the cards she has made.  Leanne has raided her husband's toolbox, and gone all out creating some fantastic cards for boys/men.  Thanks so much Leanne - it is just so lovely to get inspiration from someone else.




If you would like to showcase cards that YOU have made, then email me a photo of your card, and I would love to post them here for you.

Have a great day - I'm hoping to get my classes all sorted out for next month and post them here tonight.

Stay warm, and enjoy this beautiful Winter day.

OK, so it's not ACTUALLY a scrapbook page, but it's a Squash Album.  The first picture is the album all folded up, then the next picture is when it is all opened up, and the third is one of my fav photos of Riley - he was 4 years old, and just look at those dimples!   Gorgeous!  This is one of the projects we made today at my 3D class.  Well done ladies - it was a great afternoon.  These albums are really fun, and pretty easy to put together, so have a go, and let me know what YOU do with your album.    That's it - short & sweet for tonight, as I'm absolutely shattered!  Busy busy weekend, and I'm really looking forward to a little bit slower pace tomorrow!  Take care - I'm also a little sad, as the season finale for Grey's Anatomy has just been on.   I'll miss that programme!  What could possibly be as good?  What's your favourite t.v programme?

RECIPE : Stampsets: Life Definitions, Classic Stars Wheel.  Cardstock: Rose Red Prints DSP, Very Vanilla.  Ink: Rose Red.  Accessories: Very Vanilla 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, large & small star punch.

A Sneak Peak...

I just couldn't resist - I've got to show you a peep at one of the projects we are making tomorrow at the 3D class. It's sooooo cool!   Even I was impressed that I got it to work! LOL.   I must admit, it has taken me about 5 hours to GET it to work, but we got there in the end, and the work was worth it!  Thanks (gee Cherie, I see to be thanking you ALL the time - you're WONDERFUL!) to Cherie for showing me her Peek-A-Boo card last week that she made, and WOWing me with it enough to make me just HAVE to figure out how to make it myself. 

3D Class June 08 001 3D Class June 08 002

Really looking forward to the class tomorrow - hope you all love the projects as much as I do!

Oh, and BTW - after my great intentions of scrapping yesterday, I had an absolute DISASTER of an afternoon - my computer went on GO SLOW (apparently we had used up all of our something-or-other which has reverted us back to dial-up!) PAINFUL!!  Then, I couldn't find my photos.  Really.  I've yet to find them, so I may have a late night hunting through all the nooks and crannies that I may have put them to get them out of the way.  Hmmm.  There's something to be said for always putting away things where they belong after all!

Enjoy your Saturday - it looks like it's about to start raining here pretty soon.  YAY.  I LOVE stampin, and sleeping, and pretty much doing anything in the rain (apart from having to go out in it!)

Inglewood High

Another fun class last night - I don't know who has more fun at our Inglewood High classes - me, or the students!  Students - doesn't that make you all feel very YOUNG??   A HUGE Happy Birthday to Joviann, who is turning 21 today.  Joviann, have a fabulous day, and I hope you have a wonderful dinner out!  I'm sure your darling will really treat you...  Anyway, here's what we made last night.  Thanks to Cherie who showed me a card box that she made with her Stamp club last month.   INglewood High 12 june 003 INglewood High 12 june 004

OK, I'll ALSO post the recipe for the Rocky Road that I made last week for Inglewood High that is TO DIE FOR (Thanks once again to Cherie, who is going to make us all fat with the most terrible, wonderful recipes ever!)  But wait, there's more!  Thanks (again) to Cherie for yet another terrible, wonderful recipe for Caramel Cashew Cheesecake that is divine!  I made it for my DH to take to squash in a moment of weakness, expecting them to not really be into it, 'cos it's kinda a girly dish I thought, and he brought home the clean plate.  8-(    I guess, at least it was clean huh?? LOL.  Anyway, get commenting - what are you all still doing reading?   Kim...  that means you!

Take care, and have a fantastic Friday - I'm going to do a scrapbook page so I'm all ready to post it on Scrappin Sunday!

Stamp Club (second try!)

Stamp Club Jan 036Hi everyone - this is my second attempt at publishing some of the projects we did at Stamp Club yesterday.  I typed up a great big post last night, and loaded the photos, then for some reason it just wouldn't publish.  Grrr.  Very frustrating.  So, I  left it, and decided I'd try to publish it again this morning, but my DH must have updated our computer late last night when he got home, because everything was gone this morning when I got up.   Double Grrrr.  So, here's the short version - pictures~  Hopefully!  This is a double pocket card made with our beautiful DSP.  Love those papers!  RECIPE : Stampsets : Life Definitions, Lovely Letters Alphabet, Boho Backgrounds.  Cardstock : Brocade Background DSP, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla.  Ink : Chocolate Chip, Old Olive.  Accessories : Corner Rounder Punch, Mat Pack, Scallop Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch.

Double Open Card

Today I tried my first double open card (absolutely no idea if that is what it's called, but that's what I'll call it!).

Inglewood High 001



Here it is closed,







... and open!    This is one of the projects we are making tonight at  Inglewood High 003 Inglewood High School.   Very easy - have a go!  Thanks to Cherie for making one of these for my son's birthday (see previous post) and giving me the inspiration to try myself.  Keep your eyes open for another weekly class that will be starting next term in New Plymouth - I'll let you know all the details when it is confirmed, but there will be one class on Tuesday (daytime) and then the class will be repeated on Tuesday night.  The course will run for four weeks, subject to numbers.  

Recipe : Stamp Sets: Bud Basics, Wonderful Favourites, Occasional Greetings, It's Your Birthday.  Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White.  Ink: Versamark, Elegant Eggplant, Certainly Celery.  Accessories: Celery DSP, Narrow Organdy Ribbon, pastels & sponge daubers.

I've got an award!!

Yay - Thanks so much to Trudi for passing this award to me.  It's very cool - "Blogging with A Purpose", and "You Rock Socks".  I'm so sure that I could find a nice pair of blue shoes to go with those socks! 



I would like to pass this award onto Angela, Latisha and Chris.  You girls do rock, and I love checking out your blogs.



And the answer is...

Being grumpy!   Unbelieveable.   The average woman spends 3 1/2 hours PER DAY being grumpy.  I just couldn't believe that.  ONLY 3 1/2 hours!  LOL - I know that some days I get in a full 1 1/2 hours before the kids even get to school.  But really, that's not good.  So if everyone finds a creative outlet and makes lots of cards, that's sure to decrease the grumpy average huh?  Anyway - no winner for this poll, so I'll keep the cards, and might just have to post one to someone to try and get the national average down.  Getting a card in the mail ALSO would decrease the grumps I'm sure.    $2 cards May 002 This is one of the cards we made last night at $2 cards.  I used some of the in-colours after seeing a card from my sister, and then got the idea for spotlighting the bird from a card on Splitcoast. 

Recipe : Stampsets: Baroque Motifs, Natural Beauty, Sanded (BG).  Cardstock: River Rock, Bayou Blue, Whisper White.  Ink: Blue Bayou, Basic Black, Versamark.  Accessories: 1 1/4" & 1 3/8" Square Punch, Watercolour Pencils, Blender Pen


have a HAPPY day.

My Blue & Green Challenge Entry

blue and green challenge 003

This is my entry for Louise Forsyth's Blue & Green Challenge she has going on her blog at the moment.  If you want to take part, just check out the details HERE.  Louise is a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, and she has fantastic ideas on her blog, so make sure you go and leave her a comment as well.  This card we made at my Technique Class a couple of months ago.  It was using the shaving cream technique - lots of fun, and mess.  I also made this card a suspension card, to add that something extra I felt it needed. 

Have a great day - yes, if you read my blog yesterday, then I'm happy to say that I have indeed made a whole heap of cards, including completing early (I KNOOOW!!)  my Demosink swap for a masculine card.  You can check out my entry on the NZSU blog, which is managed by the very talented Trudi Hopkinson.  Trudi, I just want to say what a fabulous job you do with this (and your own) blog.  I really appreciate the time and effort you dedicate to making it so fantastic.  Everyone, go check out this blog as well - HERE.

Enjoy your day off!

Scrappin' Sunday

Scrapbooking 005

 Scrapbooking 006 

Hello!   Yes, Sunday rolls around very quickly, so I have another page (in fact two!) to show you.   Sorry to you ladies who have seen these pages, but I haven't had the time this week to do any new ones.  Something I'll get around to one day soon I'm sure!  This photo (my DH will absolutely DIE if he knew they were on my blog!) is of my DH with Blake, aged 4 days.  I love these photos.  The pages are super simple again, as my scrapbooking is all about the photos, not how many embellishments I can fit onto a page.  I know this isn't in vogue at the moment (more is more!), but I still prefer the simple look. 

Recipe: Stamp Sets: Boho Backgrounds, Natural Beauty, Oh So Lovely (Hostess Set).  Cardstock: Old Olive, Really Rust, Close to Cocoa, Soft Sky, Chocolate Chip.  DP Fall Flowers.  Accessories: Five Petal Flower Punch, Pretties Brad, Hodge Podge Hardware, Spiral Punch,  Mat Pack & Paper Piercer.


Enjoy your Sunday (and long weekend).  I'll have some more cards to post tomorrow - I'm on a mission tonight to get some of my $2 cards done early for a change!
