Our first lot of sketches are up on the Oz sketch site. The first guest artist was Kim Archer. Go check out her fantastic sketch and our interpretations of it. Here's mine:
Journaling: You are mischief. You are sunshine. You are delight. You are joy with blonde hair and a cheeky grin.
I take more portrait photos than landscape, so I turned the sketch around to suit. Unfortunately the LO wouldn't scan without the edges getting chopped off and it just plain looked unbalanced. I hate that! So I had to take a crappy photo instead. But you get the idea.
Love these photos I snapped one night while Jamie was playing with Phil just before bedtime. What a little face :).
It's an unusual colour combo for me, but I really like the vibrancy. I'm on a use-my-stash kick at the moment. So it's a matter of going through my stuff and seeing what's gonna work. It's a great challenge. I'm still trying to work through the stack of BasicGrey papers I won a while back, lol.
I have lots of scrapping to do this month. I don't put my hand up for much these days, so why do I suddenly feel swamped? I'm sure I'll get through it all. One step at a time.
Our garage sale was successful on the weekend, but we still have heaps of gear we need to get rid of. We have probably another two weekends work on the house (I keep saying that!). Phil came home and worked on the outside kitchen area tonight. We really do need to get it finished. It's dragging on and on. And now that it's started to rain, there's even more urgency to get the house on the market. We just don't want to be selling in Winter. We're already talking about whether we've missed the opportunity and whether we should now hold off until Spring.
On Friday I got a letter from a childcare centre to say that there's a spot for Jamie from the end of June. Only been waiting 9 months! So, I'm taking another month off work, and possibly another one after that, if no other places come up before then. Today was supposed to be my first day back to work.
On a more relaxing note, we had a scrap get-together at Scrapbook Station on Saturday night. What a blast! I had such fun chattering away non stop. I did get some scrapping done. Not much, but some. It was just so nice to be out of the house, and with good company, scrapping without any interruption. Yeeha!
Way past my bedtime, but otherwise you wouldn't have heard from me. 'Night!
