Project Life - where did it go!

OK, OK I'm ready to admit it... my Project Life has gone belly up, yep it's a just not happening and ya know, I'm OK with that.  Instead of pages today I will share a few pics of what I should have put in my Project Life...hehehe.

We celebrated Miss Ivy's second birthday last Saturday with a Blues Clues themed party.  Can you believe this little girl is two 0.0...
I made an iron-transfer of Blue with my Cameo to add to a little top.  She did look cute in her tutu and co-ordinating top.  And boy didn't she love those plaits, ran around for a full 5mins swinging them from side to side and having a wonderful time :)


Miss Ivy's very clever Mummy crocheted a Blue and the Salt and Pepper as cake ornaments, little Miss thought they were just awesome!


And of course what's a birthday without cake and ice cream... it seemed to taste better if you just licked it out of the cup rather than use a spoon...lol!

Have a great day!

It's Time for Christmas!

Finally! I've made it to my craft room to start on Christmas card...YAY! I've been madly pinning cards I like to Pinterest, so I have some sort of idea on what I can make. I even bought a pack of three card making magazine...lol.

So here are the first few offerings...

The Silly Season has started...

well for me anyway!  OK so it really started about a month ago but I am beginning to feel a lot more like Christmas is just around the corner...EEK!!!

KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON - this will definitely be my mantra for this month and the next.  Not that I really need to worry, I couldn't sleep one night last month so I got up and planned out my schedule for October, November and December... hahahaha cos that's what ya'll do when you can't sleep right!

I have to say though I am glad I did this as it really has taken the pressure off, I highly recommend it :)  

Here is a little of what I had/have planned for Oct/Nov...

1. Invites for Miss Ivy's second birthday.  Our gorgeous DIL is doing a Blues Clues theme and asked me to help out with the invites she designed that required a lot of cutting... cue the Silhouette!
2. A tutu for Miss Ivy's birthday...


isn't it gorgeous, I can't wait to see it on :).  I followed the directions from this post by Mandy http://babystribling.blogspot.com.au/2011/10/diy-tutu-do-it-yourself-no-sew-tutu.html
3. Christmas cards and calendars for the family are in the works.
4. Organize canvas prints for family members as Christmas presents.
5. This year I am decorating around the front door with swags and present trees either side, way too excited for these...lol.  Photos to come :)
6. Get cracking on some subway art I would love to have on the wall this Christmas too.
7. As I am working the first weekend in December which is when traditionally we put the tree and decorations up, I am going to do this the Thursday/Friday before.

...and well because that isn't enough I have signed up for three eClasses this month!!!  Yes I did...hahahahaha.  Studio Calico are having a class for the Silhouette, I don't think I can ever know enough plus they had a really cool class kit.  Gossamer Blue are running a December Daily Boot Camp, this one I hope will have me and my album ready and set for December 1st. Last but not least I signed up for {MO}tography over at Jessica Sprague, this class looks like a lot of fun as I learn how to take better pics with my iPhone.

Well that sounds like a bit of a quiet month doesn't it...hahahahaha. 

Have a great day!
