One week left.

There is just one week to go of my holidays. It has gone fast.
Yesterday I scrapped at Chookscraps and created the following layout.

Ugggh! Dentist today!

I am off to see a new dentist today. Hopefully we will get along as I need to do a lot of catch up work.
I got my keys on Monday morning and have been slowly moving all the art papers into their new home. Hopefully the new furniture will no be too far away. With so many school in the same boat, I don't know what will happen.
I managed to put my new bike together with help from DH and have been getting used to the different programmes. It even measures body fat and BMI.
I have been scrapping at Chookscraps on Wednesdays afternoon/evening and have managed a few layouts. On Saturday there will be a midnight madness crop ( 12pm to 12am), so I am looking forward to that.
This layout was for challenge 3 from the January non-sketch challenges which had to include sanding, embossing and paint. I used some glam on the flower petals.

A New Start for 2011


Sorry about the lack of posts to my blog. The end of the year was rather stressful and rather than try to catch up with the photos for each day, I decided to just stop and take a break.
Christmas and New Year have been and gone and I have just two weeks of holidays before I head back to the coal face. I have spent the last two weeks scrapping, quilting, knitting and reading. I get the keys to my new Art Room on Monday, so the big move will start. My plan is to do some each morning while it is cool. Luckily I do not live far from school.
Last year I tried to post a photo each day for a year. This year I am going to try to blog once a week. I think that is more doable. I got a macro lens for Christmas, so hope to play with that when I get the time.
