The month that was ....

I've just come home from teaching my second class at Pages 2 Scrap at Tuggerah, bit disappointed that more didn't join the class, but those that did enjoyed a morning of crafting.  Today's cards were the Kaisercraft Vintage Tag cards, lots of blending Distress Inks and fussy cutting, but at the same time, relaxing.  I'm repeating this class at Alice In Paperland on Tuesday morning at 10am, so if you're reading this and you live in Sydney and want to have a fun morning out, give Alice a call on (02) 9638 1523.

I finally got October's class cards finished last night as they were due for submission by today!  My friends who know me well, know that I'm good at panicking finishing things at the last minute.  But I'm reasonably happy with them.  They are more arty then I normally do, quirky meets halloween Tim Burton style, you'll have to wait and see ...... they'll be posted soon, I promise.

My apologies for not posting very much recently.  Very sadly we have lost both my father-in-law and my father in the last 4 weeks and our family has been rather distracted.  There are things that need to be done at a time when you are feeling very emotional and upset and you just seem to run on auto-pilot.  This last week the days seem to have blurred into each other, so if you were to ask what I did two days ago  I'll probably look blankly at you.

Next week is the final week of school before the holidays, which means for my DS#3, no more school.  Wednesday evening is the Year 12 Formal, with Friday being the Year 12 Final Assembly.    After the holidays he has his HSC exams and then he's finished.  Yikes! where the time go?

Anyhow, I need to finish babbling on because I'd really better have a look at what we might be having for dinner tonight before the hungry hoards family start ferretting around in the fridge!

Until next time, happy crafting!
