Me in a Magazine!

Hello Peeps
Well I have been GAGGIN to share this with you all, but until I actually saw it in the flesh I did not quite believe it!
I have been published! I had been commissioned to do some work for Australian Scrapbook Ideas way back in May. It was about a form of scrap booking which is sort of harking back to how scrap booking used to be, for example just any old book, a collection of photos and all the tickets programmes etc, with not so much importance placed on producing artwork - more about keeping memories. It is why I really like the project life idea!

 So here it is Australian Scrapbook ideas, issue 16. It was released in September.
I feature on pages 44,45,46, and 47. Yes a four page spread! Bit excited!


Pregnant Pics

Looking serene, not sure how I manage to be able to sit cross legged but unable to walk
My Big Beautiful - stretched Belly
My lovely friend Barbara came and took some late stage bump shots for me! these are my faves. I am 37 weeks Pregnant this week.

It took me a while!

Well talk about frustration, because I had bought the domain name using blogger and Godaddy. Once it expired they tried to auto charge my credit card DUH! there is never any money on there! So once expired to recover and re-new costs around $300 - so not happening! It has taken me this long to work out how to remove the custom domain name from the site to enable you all to start visiting me again!
But now I am here back up and running and making do with the free service for now.
I have not been up to too much crafty goodness lately, with being pregnant/disabled and all! but what I have done I will get to sharing with you all. Mostly those who love Stampin' Up! should try to check out my other site too as I am going to be putting more effort into that as a business! http://www.stampinup-funkibubl.blogspot.com.au/
Also in checking the link I got a security warning in case I had stolen my identity, rest assured this is still me!!!
SO keep your eyes peeled for crafty goodness coming your way 

Post Convention Waffle!

Here's hopin that you all had as much fun at the Scrapbook and Papercraft Expo as I did. I managed to squeeze in 3 classes, with Julie Van Oosten, Stacey Rigby, and Louisa Kenny, and Angela Peardon. All of whom are amazingly talented ladies. I spent 2 whole days catching up with my bestie Wendy, which I probably value most of all! I have not had too much chance to spend any free time recently. The other highlight was helping out the Uber talented Jane Tregenza, such a lovely person and a fantastic person I feel I learn something from Jane every time I catch up with her, seriously check out her website it is full of the most stunning eye candy and Jane is going to be doing an online tutorial/kit combo with Graphic45 to make one of her "books". I am so signing up!

A Little mosaic of Convention Fun!

T!m Holtz - technique overload

Today I have been to an all day class with ....... T!m Holtz........ The man himself!!!! and all I can say is WOW WOW WOW
he really is an awesome instructor and very, very amusing and I learned heaps, ok so I already knew alot about ranger/distress products and what you could achieve with them but now I have a more in depth knowledge base, and can better teach using them and advise on tips and tricks and the whys and whynots!
More than that though, I got to meet the man!!! and get my "me n Tim" photo,  and autograph.

May 2012 Card Kit
I have been a very busy bee of late and have I confess woefully neglected my blog, members of my family, friends, some social interactions etc. What has been keeping me so busy? Well I have discovered I am pregnant! Must have been around Valentines day as baby is due on 7th November. I have been very very sick for the first trimester, unable to raise my poor carcass out of my pit, for days in a row. However things have turned a corner! My mum visited from the UK and was a great help in getting me organised for the next stressful event I have moved house!! Yep we are back to renting for a while, the house is huge as Amy (my 21YO daughter) and her boyfriend Michael decided to stay with us. I have also been doing heaps of crafty work designing card kits and running some classes for my local scrapbook store! Stamp and Scrapbook Madness. I am back to working in Emergency too, although only part time, and private hospital emergency so far more sensible. I have lots of exciting things coming up over the next few weeks so will be updating on here regularly and posting lots of lovely images!

These 3 were from a card class I ran recently, called best of British, and features stamps by Penny Black, and paper by Do Crafts.

Happy New Year

Wow 2012 people!!!! My good friend Wendy reminded me the other day that I have been really slack in the blog dept, it is true. There is no real excuse and, at the moment life is not being very cooperative in allowing me time to communicate......However I will endeavour to keep it up but no promises. I have been up to heaps of stuff, designing about a million cards for Stamp and Scrapbook Madness (SSM), I am currently designing the February kit.
Last night I did a truly awesome class taught by my good friend Barbara, in which we made a birthday card book, in the vague hopes we all get more organized! It is really cleverly designed and I foresee a new addiction on the horizon.
I have been ogling and drooling over some of the new releases about to be revealed at the CHA via sneak peaks, Fiona the Owner (SSM) is off there soon and I am eagerly awaiting more sneak peaks. Among my faves are the new Tim Holtz wordplay die, Cosmo Cricket, and Graphic 45 ooo and spellbinders has some cool new dies too.
Anyway just a quick Interlude, back soon!
