Another busy week

How was everyone's weekend.

Well Taylah's operation went well and they got the lump out and there was nothing nasty about it. Thank goodness. The op only took about 15 mins and she was awake and not in any pain. She looked pale but that was about it. The hospital already had a room booked for us so we went back to the ward and then she didn't want to go home she wanted to stay overnight as there were 3 other little girls that had their tonsils out. but I was glad we were going home as I didn't like the idea of having to sleep in the hard chair. She wasn't allowed to go to school till Thursday.

Maddison had her first day at orientation for young starters next year. And she loved it and made a very nice hat with a feather (feaver as she calls it).

Taylah and Maddison go to little athletics on a Friday night and Taylah one the U7 girls 500 metres running. Very happy little girl and mummy.

I was so busy during the week with orders from the sale and then getting ready for the school fete and then the crop day on sunday.

yesterday the crop day was great. Lots of ladies came and I hope they all had a good time.

Here is a great blog that I came across and it had to do with layouts and lots of photos

This week I am going to the dentist as I have a whole in my tooth, which has been there for about 3 months but on Friday I broke half of it off. so that is my dread tomorrow morning. Hate the dentist. Then tomorrow night I am off to Jen Hall's place to do another of her classes. tomorrow night is min album and it is so cute.

At some point this week I have to get ready as I am off to the Paper Crafts Festival in Sydney to do Elsie Flanagan's class and Zina Wright's class. So have to get photos and supplies ready for that as I am going down on Thursday night as the class starts at 8.30am on friday. Looking forward to that and having a look at the trade show and see what new things I can buy and also having a look at the Paper Crafts festival and all the retailers and of course see what else I can buy.

enjoy your week everyone.

Busy week ahead

The sale is going great guns and I have sold out of nearly all the My Minds Eye Kits, patterned paper and rubons. So I have placed another order tonight and I have also ordered some clear stamps by Provocraft and Rhonna Farrer. But I forgot to order some acrylic blocks, silly me. But I got a tip from Scrapbooking Top 50 which was to use a clear cd case for the stamps. So will have to try that to start with.
I am also looking to order some Christmas lines of products so watch out for those. My Minds Eye have just released a Bohemia Christmas range and another range called Magnolia. Check it out at They are beautiful.

Thankyou you all who have taken part in the sale this weekend.

Tomorrow I am off to my brothers 40th birthday and my sister in law's 39th birthday. Yes husband and wife have the same birthday.

On Monday Taylah is into hospital for her throat operation and it looks like we might be staying overnight as my sister rang from the hospital as she works there and told me that they already have a rooom booked for her. We have to be there at 9am but the op is not till 1.00pm and she has to fast from 6.00am so we will be up at 5.30am having breakfast.

On Saturday we have Taylah's school fete and I am having a stall their and then on Sunday we have our monthly crop day at Teralba bowling Club.

have a good week everyone and donna if you read this, I hope this week is better for you and if you need anything please let me know.
