I have hosted a swap on the group and it must incorporate a paper from the new Collections range of papers and also make use of other collections elements....
I have used both new and old papers, an image, chipboard and only collections stamps ;-)

Whoo Hoo 31 pages complete


I am not the first one finished but I'm not the last either. These pages for the arty_oz collaborative book are due in October - so I am pleased they are done. Last year I had to start from square 1 again a week before they were due.

New Jewellery


Jenny came down on the weekend for the Art retreat. This is the necklace she brought me - another one for my wonderful collection :-) and also a pin from her friend Sarah. I am very happy that Sarah has joined arty_oz. Her work is also stunning!
The image in the pin is SO teensy. I would love to know how she cut it out! Obviously she has better eyes than mine!

Aint she sweet


Jassie doesn't care how messy her Mum's craft room is!

A visit to Jane's apartment at LAST!






My friend Jane moved into her $million plus apartment in Beacon Cove (Port Melbourne) a few months ago and I finally got to see it last night. Now that I go to work via the picturesqe beach road, I pass her unit everyday!


The views from the decent sized balcony are stunning. Shame I was having problems with the settings on my camera, so the photos are very average (I'm sorry!). When you look out the lounge and master bedroom windows you can see the shipping lanes. At night they are lite up like a runway - quite amazing. While I was there the Spirit of Tasmania backed out of her mooring and disappeared into the horizon.
Jane has 2 siamese cats (A brother and sister) and that is Princess Lulu cuddled up in the mohair nest. When the weather cooled the cats starting seaching the new apartment for the gas furnace (that was in the old house) so Jane came up with the "nest" for them to curl up in, instead.
Later we went down to the basement as Jane wanted me to photograph some trunks she is selling. Mercs, Lotus, Jag XK8 - I was in heaven....




New Shoes


Well I have to admit that I nearly wet myself when I saw Michelle Ward's shoes on Judy's blog.
Anyway I found a pair which I am hoping are my size on ebay. I got the seller to measure inside the shoe, the they seem the right size. Well if they are too small i'll just have my toes amputated!
Aren't they just divine!!!!!!

Happy Birthday Viv


An ex- work colleague has just turned 60 and her birthday party is next Saturday. It's to be a very busy weekend with a Misty Mawn class on Friday, lunch and Jen arriving Saturday and a Nina Bagley class on Sunday! Phew!!
Note the Collections bird - one of JVO's new chipboards ;-)
