STOP THE PRESS! A New Family Member & Home Renovations...

Lots to share with you all... & I hope you're sitting down, because it's actually a decent, information filled post!

Firstly, I must introduce the newest addition to our family- Miss 'Milli'. A miniature black & tan smooth haired dachshund (what a mouthful!!) We have had her for nearly 2 weeks now and she is uber cute!! Mish loves having someone to play with but does get a bit sad when Milli gets cuddled at the same time!!

I have been scrapping! I just can't show you right now (I haven't taken any photos of them haha). For all of those who knew we were doing an album for Pop's 70th in July...just so you know, he really, really loved it!! There were lots of photos in there that he had not seen in a long, long time & thanks to the scouting of Mum, Aunty Tracy & Georga-they were able to make the album! I am going to take it to Peta's Retreat so I can show everyone. I cannot imagine photographing all the pages, it would take far too long!!

Speaking of which, I am so looking forward to Peta's retreat!! Think I need it...and of course catching up with all the ladies that I have not seen in far too long!
I had an invitation to go to Manning Point with some lovely ladies, but being as uber organised as I am-I got the invitation too late & had lots of appointments anyway that I couldn't miss for THE wedding tomorrow- would have been so nice to go though!!
A really good friend of mine-Jess, is getting married. It will be at Pepper's Creek Winery & I CANNOT wait! Knowing Jess, everything will be perfect! Must practise my reading for the wedding today...
Lots of home improvements have been going on....a new kitchen & if any of you saw what the old granny green kitchen looked like, I'd say it's an improvement! (still waiting on the splashback!), a feature wall of marble & then a fire in front of that & a new dining room table (& you know what a bigger table means don't you? Scrap day at my house!). It finally feels like it is all coming together!

Thanks for looking-bet I suprised you hahah.

Photo Share: Jack's 4th Birthday

Just thought I would have a photo share of Jack's birthday...have had these for a couple of weeks but just haven't got around to uploading them. Had a lovely day and the kids were so great. On a scrapping note-I have been scrapping and using some of Peta's amazing kits!! I just can't share any of it yet as it is for something special.
Very much looking forward to the school holidays (although some will disagree with me!) I feel like all I have been doing is living and breathing reports, marking and school work. Need a break I think. I also have the Canberra Connection coming to visit: Georga & Aunty Tracy and I am very much looking forward to seeing them and spending more than a weekend with them.
Thanks for looking,

I have been missing in action of late. so thought I would quickly pop in here to update everyone. I have been super busy lately with home and school. Term 2=reports and very shortly I will be bogged down in my first ever attempt at writing them.
At the moment I have the flu and just can't seem to shake it. Have been resting and snoozing mostly. The only scrapbooking I have done is the birthday books that I make for the kids in the class, but hey-that's still scrapbooking so I should be thankful!
I desperately can't wait for Peta's retreat, I wish it would come around already! I feel like I need a good weekend away and to see my girls again, I'm forgetting what you all look like and miss you terribly!
Exciting news from the home-front is that we are finally getting a new kitchen. A bit different to what I thought we'd end up with....but I did have to remember that this is not the forever house and that there is no point spending big $$ when someone may come in and not like what we'll do anyway-will keep you updated on that!
Best be off, just a quick one to let you all know that I am still around!

Weekend Away...

Hold onto your knickers Kate, another post! Hehehe

What a lovely weekend away! Brad and I decided that we needed to get out of the house and just relax somewhere for the weekend and we decided on the Blue Mountains.
We arrived late Friday afternoon and we both moped for most of it and weren't too enthusiastic as it was the first time since Mishy was born that we have left her at home without one of us there. She stayed at Mum's house and was pampered for the whole weekend and I think we missed her more than she missed us!
Lots of shopping and a bit of bush walking which really did seem like a great idea, until I realised I was wearing thongs, was carrying shopping bags from earlier on that day and that when I went to photograph some of the gorgeous waterfalls etc... I learned that my camera battery was infact dead-doh! Not happy Jan!
We stayed at the Metropol Guesthouse which was very quaint. Breakfast and a 3 course dinner was included every day. The room was like a match box, but because we were hardly in there it didn't matter. We also visited the artist Tanya Loviz's gallery & I loved her chekky artwork!! So much that we bought a bit of it...
All the pic's below are borrowed because of my camera...and I feel like a day of rest unwind from the weekend and to relax my aching calf muscles!

Print Titled: Bed of Sweet Sweet Dreams

Print Titled: Mixing Your Reds

And this one we bought as a Giclay (Canvas Print) which is an investment and comes with
an edition certificate etc... as they are limited edition.
It is appropriately titled Bring out the Bubbles.
I could have bought so so many more if the money tree grew bigger lol!
Thanks for looking,

Easter Long Weekend!

What a cracker of an Easter long weekend!! We spent a lot of the weekend at Mum & Dad's place as well as across the road at Nan & Pop's. It was extra special because it was 'our' year to have George (cousin Georga, pictured below) and Aunty Tracy. I don't think we stopped all weekend! Way too much food, bbq's, seafood, shopping, again!! Can't wait until we see you again next time! xoxox

Mishy playing in the sand...

I think Mishy has perfected the sad puppy eyes!

Brad & I xxx

Lucky there was feed in the bucket, otherwise Mishy wouldn't have been able to see over the top!

Mum posing...(didn't put up the ruder versions...George & I were in stitches!!)

My new Easter gumboots from the Easter Bunny!

Love this photo of nan and pop wasson and nan turnbull (my great nan) tucked in the middle there xxx

And finally, Mishy smooching with one of her favourite people...her Dad!
Thanks for looking,

Retreat to Main Creek

Wow! What an awesome weekend (again). I had a wonderful time, Marion was an excellent cook as always and Kate and Peta had the classes and shop organised exceptionally.
It was so nice to catch up with all the girls as well as those who travelled to be there and Donna, it was so nice to meet you in real life!
Here are the pages I got done on the weekend and I apologise in advance at the quality of the photos I took of my pages.
