Fun fun fun

LOL im haveing so much fun makeing christmas things at the moment,
now most of you have probably already done this, but incase your like me and hadent thought about it,this wee box is a recycled chrisse card,how cool is that.
All you do is get an old used card, cut it in half down the crease,the front will become the top and the back will become the bottom of the box, crease 1 inch in from edge of card on all 4 sides ,to make the courner folds see picture above .
To make the bottom do the same as above but make it a tiny bit smaller,
not to much or your lid will be losse. Have fun :)

Christmas goodie bags

That Christmas felling is starting to kick in at last, i have been busy making goodie bags, the one above is my all time favourite,each year
i buy abut 20 of these cute mini kit bags from the $2 shop, they cost
$1 each, then i decorate them (im loving the bells i got this year) and
add treats, I send these overseas ,and to a few special friends here
in New Zealand, I add things like NZ made products for over seas such as
some of our delicious moisturisers, Rotourua mud soap,kiwi fruit face cream etc, for my NZ friends i add things i either know they like for eg:
I have done one with lip gloss and nail polishes in it and another has
a voucher and lose chockys in it. They are easy to post or deliver and theres no limit as to what gos in them,also were shearing a little bit of Kiwi with the rest of the world .
Hope your all in joying this super weather we have today. TFL
Edited: I have just reloaded this post as the last one had a link to a porn site :( grrr I think i will have to use the moderate posts thing from now on as it takes ages to re post and if anyone has left me a nice post that gets deleted to .

Oh Saturday night Halloween party (dress up) was cool, lots ofus dressed for the night and lots of photos were taken,our very own Kelly made us all tomb stones for theback of our chairs and made EVERY one a little Halloween bag with a chocky in it thanks Kelly your the bomb all her hard work urned our group a prize pack.I will be doing a few layouts with some of the photos over the next week you might find some interesting tit bits on them i have one nearly ready to load thanks to Lisa's nifty little photo printerso it will be up tonight I'm hoping, might have to have a we nap first.Megan did an outstanding job setting this all up and i will defiantly be in for the next one

Paper Pesto sketch

I did this layout using a paper pesto sketch, and some of the products i got in my last kit from them.

Monday, 20 October 2008


Today i was packing some stuff at work and had to cut down a box as it was to big ,I have a lovely sharp Stanly knife for these jobs, the knife hit a join and slipped cutting me across the wrist,
lucky for me it missed the tendon and artery, it bleed like hell,so we stuffed a rag on it and of to A+E i went, 3 stitches and a tetanus shot later i was back at work.....sooooo the lesson here is
don't cut towards yourself lol Lucky its my left hand side so i can still scrap my heart out

October sketch SBBD & NZ Dare 56

This sketch was perfect for my heritage album,the photo here was black and white originally,
on the back is a list of what each persons hair colour is and the colours they were wearing, then
colour was added to the photo,I wonted to portray the love they felt but keep with the old look
so went for the very pail blue,such a beautiful photo but such a sad story.
