AT LAST! I have finally got my wonderful Christmas present from Julian Buttenshaw, mounted on the wall. I had to colour the hook it hangs from with alcohol inks to dull it down a bit

I went to a crop day at Paper Heaven today.

I got there a little after 10am (start time) and was surprised to find the first all-day car spot was still available. The girls who arrived before me had parked in front of the shop. It's only 2 hours (not really policed) but becomes a clearway at 4pm.

Lyn always puts on a fab lunch and today was no exception. Our lunch was rather late however, thanks to some lowlife who vandalised Lyn's son's car in his carport. (Lyn is house sitting and car minding while her son is overseas).

Anyway 4pm seemed to come around much faster than any of us anticipated and next thing, Nicole (who was minding the shop) came up to tell us that a nasty little man was writing tickets. I was so relieved to be legally parked - as the other 5 all had $110 parking tickets, as did visitors to a neigbouring house...

So what did I do today? Not as much as I expected - considering I had made a bit of a start to things already (So I would know what to take).

Still I made 21 atc's ( white swap and black, white and 1 colour swap) for arty_oz and got the backgrounds for my jigsaw swap with Gisele, Gaby and Linda, done. I know Gaby will like them as they are pretty bright ;-)

THANK You Julian for my DeMeng inspired

piece. It is truly an amazing piece of Art! A piece came off during transit, so J can you please tell me where to reattach it (in the photos it is hanging on the tower beside the main piece. Not very good photographs and I have cut off part of the coat hanger. I will take more time over the weekend to photograph it properly (And hopfully have the missing piece reattached in the right spot!)

This was the arty_oz Christmas Present swap :0)

I had a fantastic day yesterday with my friend Ottie! It started on Friday night, when I caught up with friends Ottie and jane for dinner. JAne has just bought an apartment in the Doclands - with sea views - WOW! Can't wait to see it. For those of you who have come to the MPE dinner, well the building Jane is in is on the 10th floor in the building next to the restaurant!

So after dinner, I went back to Otties and stayed the night. This is the view from her lounge room window. We had breakfast downstairs in the cafe at the ground level of her building before we headed out shopping! We were going to go into the city, but South Melbourne was just so relaxing - no big crowds but still fab shops. The weather was just gorgeous - my car outside themometer said 28C when I was heading home around 6pm. We just had the best day. Here are my spoils - the clock was a present from Ottie, she knows what a Paris nut I am. We went into a little shop called Le Metro - which is full of all things french plus handbags and costume jewellery. I forgot to add to my spols 3 fridge magnets of the Eiffel Tower at various stages of being built ;-)
I saw this joke in one of the changing rooms yesterday...
A woman comes in and see's her husband with a fly swat.
"What are you doing ?" she asks
"Hunting Flies" he replies
"and have u caught any?" she asks
"yes 3 males and 2 females he replies
"how do you know that?" she asks
He replied "Well I got the three males on the beer can while the 2 females were on the phone......"

isn't this painting AMAZING! It was painted by a very talented lady called Jenene Evans from here in Victoria. Jenene gave me permission to post this on my blog. She doesn't have a blog, but does look at mine from time to time - so if you post a comment I'm sure she will read it. Perhaps it might encourage her to start her own blog ;-)
I must admit I am very envious of people who can draw/paint......
