School holidays are going good, I love having the kids around the house. Even the part where they decided that the spider in the window frame was a whitetail and obsessed with showing me the squashed remains so as to identify it. NO thanks.
I took Jacob shopping with me the other day. I picked up a box of Glad Wrap, looked at it, said to myself "THAT is SO COOL" and put it in the trolley. The sideways glance he gave me said it all but I still had to ask him "What? what's wrong with that?" "Mum". he says. "It's a box of Glad wrap".
"I know" I said "but I only ever buy the refills and it's kinda cool to be able to buy myself a new box." Eyebrows raised at me he said nothing more, but I did realise at that point that things are getting a little sad when the fact that one gets to buy the box of gladwrap instead of the refill makes ones day. Or are they - it's been 3 years or so since I bought the last one :o)
Registrations for the Autumn Escape retreat are going well - way busier than we anticipated actually which is GREAT- it's good to see that it's not just me that wants total relaxation in a scrapbooking weekend - and actually there is a popular golf course on the resort so we've had some very clever bargaining from some ladies - and as a result they are bringing hubbies! Well. Not to the scrapbooking thingie but they are staying at the resort together! Clever, clever! I see Kim Archer has blogged about it - she's excited and we are excited to have her there!
If you really have no clue as to what I'm talking about, check out the Autumn Escape blog.
Sharing an old page here, probably a few years old. It did feature on the Aussie Scrap Source blog a week or so back so I thought I could show you again.
Oh! SENZ - a few things I'm being asked about.
Paintables - the photo/s are better if they are feminine. We can swing it if they are boys, we can use a lot of blue and paint ;o) but girls/friends type pics are probably best.
As usual when you are in any of my classes, if you have a crop-o-dile, bring it and glue dots are a neccessity!!
CraftHouse added another paintables class after all my classes sold out, and there may be space in that I think.
Judging by the amount of product spread around my lounge at the moment, these classes are going to be seriously dangerously fun. Ask my poor neighbour who got dragged in to sort flowers the other day. lol
Right. Off to use my NEW glad wrap on the kids lunches. They are home today (schoolholidays) but I think I'll pack their lunches anyway ;o)
