Hello…

Hello

My poor neglected blog followers.  I am sorry for lack of posts! No plausable excuse for my lack of posts and lack of comments on other blogs.

Warning long catch up post!

Today I am popping in to share a jumper I finished a few weeks ago and has taken me months to complete! If the weather stays how it has been the last few days I might get to wear it before next winter 🙂

Excuse the silly pose I was acting up for Ms 13.

I have created a few cards including sympathy cards that unfortunately went out the door faster than I could take a pic of them.  The kiddos have mostly been using my stash cards and I have added a sentiment or die cut number appropriate for the recipient. Mr M has requested “21” on all sorts of cards including a baby card! I recently sent some of last years Christmas card makes to Aussie Farmers I saw a collection for on Facebook.

I have also been busy sewing.  Continuing on with my contributions to Days for Girls and also a few presents.  These were a recent 1st Birthday gift.

In early November I decided to start a new quilt for an upcoming December Birthday. None of the quilts in my stash were suitable! I’ll share pics of that when it is completed – it is a secret project.

I am not going to make promises about regular posts from now til post Christmas there is loads on the calender. Between now and mid January my 4 kiddos have a birthday + 2 of their partners – 6 birthdays in about 6 weeks including two 21st’s.  We had one last week too.  We will also be hosting Christmas lunch. Ms 18 is squeezing in a 2 week trip to USA.  I wish I could get her to do some crafty shopping for me 🙂  She is in the first group of Victoria University students ever to go to NASA.  And to top it off my boss would like me to work full time so I have declined the offer and am busy job hunting again. Just quietly I would be happy staying in my craft room.

Many of my regular readers may be familiar with my December/Christmas calender – we will survive the silly season.  I hope you don’t feel to exhausted reading some of the things on my calender for the next few weeks. It will be OK. I have learnt over the years it is OK to say no.

Until next time

Cheers

Vicki

Today I am sharing my DT entry for the current challenge at Unstampabelles here.

The challenge to use gold foil or glitter and white.  No stamps or other colours.

I have die cut deer from SU Detailed Deer thinlits added to an embossed white die cut circle.  The circle and deer were popped up with foam tabs as you can see with the shadow.  We are enjoying some lovely sunny spring days.  The sentiment is from Stamplorations.  A little glittery bow to finish off.

Thanks for stopping.  Will I see you in the challenge?

Cheers

Significant Birthday…

Hello

Popping in to share a card and cupcakes from this weekend.

Hubby celebrated a significant birthday.  He didn’t want a party so the kiddos, partners and hubby and I went out to a local Japanese Teppanyaki restaurant.

A simply card using my large numbers and my new Stamplorations Congrats die.  I was luck enough to win this recently along with some other goodies from Stamplorations.

Back home for dessert

Until next time

Cheers

Vicki
