oh what Happiness!

I spent most of my morning helping in Owen’s classroom. I have done it weekly for a little while now and I always walked away thinking I could never be a teacher. Today one little boy who had really struggled with naming his letters got nearly all of them right when I did it with him…WOW it is amazing to see these little people when the light switches on so to speak.

She gave me some great educational game sites for the kids which are FREE woohoo (although this one seems to have no sound so def needs an adult helper for little ones).

This afternoon I FOUND my lost little plastic doodad from my Stamp-a-ma-jig! Phew have been looking for it for over a week now and really need it for the weekend demos!

Better yet – what happiness I actually found time to do a little scrapping! The LO is not yet finished but have been playing with some of the new SU ‘in colour’ colours and my new Happiness background stamp as well as a few others too.  Felt good to have a play.

Celebrating with A Scrappe Angels Heaven!

My local scrap store just won a ‘retailer of the year’ award! Not surprisingly really as they offer a huge range of the latest stuff at reasonable prices with very friendly customer service.  I love the girls at ASAH – it is my home away from home (but then it is only 2.2km away – yes I measured).

So the girls are celebrating with a big SALE and a crop night on Friday – I have booked to go along as I’ll be kid free so will be nice to get out and get some scrapping done – haven’t done much of it lately sadly.

just a teaser…

I decided to turn the 5 playgrounds in 5 days photos into a mini book…

so here is a teaser – just the front cover…the rest isn’t done yet as after the 1st days photos the printer cracked a wobbly so will have to try to finish it over the next few days.

I used the Stampin’ Up! markers (pumpkin pie and taken with teal) to colour the grungeboard 5’s – the paper is from a range called ‘orangeaide’ from Pink Martini5 in 5 front cover

Going to bed….oh so tired…

I wasn’t going to go…I was going to be sensible….but I caved….I was silly….and I had fun!

Went to A Scrappe Angels Heaven Midnight Madness crop – 12midnight til 10am (only I got there around 7pm so got an early start).

I got 4 Layouts done and a good start on a ‘5 playgrounds in 5 days’ mini album….will share soon – or photos at least but right now I really need to go to bed! got the kids back at 2pm so haven’t been to sleep at all.

A quiet night…

I dropped the boys off at 5 and headed down to my local scrap store A Scrappe Angels Heaven with the excuse that a friend needed some white bazzill…well as I walked in I realised that in fact I have a rather Large stash of white bazzill and well that is a good thing I guess as Cindy’s order hadn’t turned up so she was out – very unusual. Anyway Jude is prattling. I just wanted to say that I love those guys. Ok so they are less than 2km from my house and are open 7 days a week so they see me ummm probably weekly lol. But honestly they are all so friendly. They know me pretty well – hey I’m an open book. Today I got to have fun with the price gun because I told Cindy I needed to buy something new to get me scrapping again…hmm so I helped her price all the K&Co new treasures she had in…and we chatted and helped her with a couple of top50 things and watched the new mezzanine level going up to make yet more room in the store. Bill told me that they ordered the RED Bind-it-all wires for me – YAY I’ve been hanging for them so that will be cool when it comes in.

It’s funny but before I was a scrapper I didn’t know the first name of any store owners…

So did I scrap?

haven’t touched the stuff I bought today but I did make a whole TWO cards with my stampin up stuff lol!

Ah well tomorrow is the Scrapanalia Crop so hopefully I will get something done there as I haven’t done much. Then some friends coming over on Sunday to scrap some….and Sunday night the kinder committee dinner – just cause we all got along so well!

A productive weekend!

yes for a change I actually got some things done!

The new top50 advertising shop – complete with direct debit payments is now up and running – with no loss of order details or member details!

New guidelines for posting in the forum have been added and publicised.

The forum has had a spring clean and things have been deleted, moved and generally reorganised.

And I bought a storage trolley from kmart and have started to pack it with things for the getaway. I also printed out 5xA4 pages plus 25 4x6photos to take with me. Have packed chipboard, alphabets, stamps, ribbons and flowers. Am planning to pack my 3 half completed mini albums plus match some card/paper to the printed photos and pack the lot – have NEVER been this organised for a getaway!

Also worked out a calendar with who is going to have the boys for Nov/Dec as with the getaway and kinder AGM/dinners, Xmas etc it all gets a little complicated…just waiting on the ex to approve it.

organised? who me? really?
