Some Handcarved fun!

Well I have made a start into some extra crafting and trying new stuff to make me happy!

I tried my hand at carving some tiny stamps.
I used parts of new erasers and a craft knife.
They are a little rough but I like them!

I should have used red ink for the lips but the red was in hiding!

New Year's Resolutions

So did you make a New Year resolution?

I don't really make them but I try to pick something to do better at for the year.
No make or break stuff.

I've done all the usual suspects - Clean more, Lose weight, yadda yadda!

This year is more about being a better me!
So probably all the same as above but what makes me feel better!

So more crafting is at the top of my list!  :)

Good Grief!

I can't believe it has been so long since I posted anything.

Life has been so busy this year with both good and bad.

I am going to definitely make a more concerted effort to post more often.
Think of it as my early New Year's resolution.

Lazy Girl

I can't believe how slack I have been with updating my blog.

It's not that I have nothing to put here - I do.

So I will do a few posts to try to catch up with the more interesting things that have happened this year. I will not bother with sicknesses and injuries, although these did consume much time from my family.

So hello first and more to follow.

Another Day, Another Party.

Today I went for lunch with my girlfriends for my birthday.
We went to Moorabool Valley Chocolate by Design. We had fritattas and toasted sandwiches and then the dessert. Chocolate Meringue layers with cream and berry sauce in between. Followed with a Hot chocolate that was divine. 3 of us had that, another had a chocolate fondue with fruit and lollies and the other had a chocolate cupcake sundae. They were all delicious, the prices were good, company was great and we had lots of fun.
Definitely a go to again place.

I also got some lovely presents.

Tonight I went out for dinner with my family and friends. Well as many as could make it. About half so there were 20 of us. We went to the the Telegraph Hotel in Pakington St, Geelong West. It has been done up and was very nice inside. The food and the service was good and I think everyone enjoyed themselves. I know I did, so I guess that's it.

My sister and I.

Happy Birthday To Me!!

Yep Today was my birthday.
And no you may not ask how old I was. A lady never tells.

I had a wonderful day. When my hubby came home from work he gave me a great set of icing decorating tools. He has also bought me a 2 yr subscription to one of my favourite crafty magazines, Handmade.

When the girls were home from school I got the rest of my pressies. I got chocolates, shower gel and body butter in passionfruit scent, lovely perfume called Amor,Amor and hubby also got me a battery operated wine opener as a joke as I can never use the new one he last bought. I always end up with the silly contraption falling apart. (It is funny to watch me, so I am told).

He also cooked us a lovely dinner of roasted chicken pieces and potates and veg. Yummy.

Later that night my sister Nightwyrm came over and gave me some more presents 2 books for making softies and felties. Yay!
AND she made some fantastic cupcakes. They were purple velvet cupcakes (red ones but blue color added to be purple) and they were so pretty.

Iced with white ,chocolate and pink icing and lots of sprinkles and sparkles and flowers.
If you haven't guessed, I like pink and purple and sparkly things.LOL.
