Happy Anniversary!

Happy Thursday, to you all. Another hot day here in Dundee. My 2 oldest boys are looking like real brown berries. They spend their days in their speedo's and nothing else!

Today I am posting a card which I made 2 of. One was for my SIL's anniversary and the other for one of my best friends. They both celebrated their anniversaries on the 16th. The card is based loosely on a card of Jennifer McGuires. She is my real hero and I LOVE all her work, and she seems like such a sweet person too, would love to meet her one day, hopefully she comes to South Africa, because I would definitely make a plan to go and see her.

I am expecting all of my family this weekend, so am going to have 7 extra adults and 2 more kids in the house. Full on! I am really looking forward to it though, and hopefully we can spend some relaxing quality time together.

Finshed wrapping all my adults gifts today, and want to do the kid's things tonight. Look at this absolutely adorable photo of Jamie. I just want to eat him up!

Keep well!

My Knitting Notebook

Happy Friday everyone. Can't believe the first week of holiday is over already, it has flown!!! Hope things slow down a bit, otherwise the holiday will be over before we even know it. Heck it has been hot this week, I have felt so drained and unmotivated. For me to feel uncrafty is something that doesn't happen often at all, but this week I have had almost zero mojo!

I did create a notebook though. I have been wanting to make one of these for a while, and when my stamps arrived from Janel Stamps, I knew this was one of my first projects to tackle.

One of my other hobbies is knitting, I really enjoy it! Can't say I am overly talented in this department (that award would go to my little sis, who is a knitting star!), but it is relaxing, and I can do it while sitting in front of the t.v. I have actually nearly finished a jersey for Jamie, so when I am done with that I will post a pic. Anyway, I often loose track of where I am in a pattern, this this notebook is going to be used to help me keep my place! Isn't this stamp just too cute, she even looks a little like me?!?!

Have a great weekend everybody. To my overseas visitors, enjoy the cooler weather!

First Day of Holiday & First Xmas Card Posted

Hello All. Hope this Monday is treating you well. Here in South Africa it is the first day of the boy's holiday, and it is a perfect Summers Day, 33 Deg. Celsius today, so in fact it's a real scorcher! I will definitely be hitting the pool later.

Today I am posting my first Xmas Card. This is the one I made for our RSA Christmas Card Swap. I had to made 20 odd cards!! I received absolutely gorgeous cards back from the other ladies who took part, and had so much fun opening all the envelopes!
Hope you have a great week. I will be back soon.
