Get Well Wish

I would like to send a special message to Gail in Nowra-check out her fantastic blog. This message is to get well soon and i hope you will not be in too much pain at camp. i will be praying for you.

Gail is one of the most talented ladies out there especially with altered items. She is running a lesson at camp on decorating tins next weekend at the SECET camp.

I hope your family are spoiling you rotten Gail.


This weekend coming is the SECET camp in Nowra. It is one of the best camps around and Cropworks will be taking their store down to Nowra for the weekend.

There would still be vacancies if anybody would like to attend. I have a link to Nowra Baptist Church in my blog.

You can contact one of the girls who runs it and they would let you know if you can attend. The profits also go to a worthy cause.

I am so looking forward to it and the theme is LOVE. We cannot have enough love in this world.

Mini Album1

I have been making these mini albums out of chipboard and patterned paper and brads and they have been a big success. They are a great way to use up all those scraps and left over bits that you no longer want to put in your big albums.

If you are anything like me then you take heaps of photos and don't want to cull any of them so what better way than to make your own album and put them in that. These albums fit nicely in a book shelf or just put them in a basket. In fact more people look at these when they are in a basket in the family room than they do my big albums.

If you are interested in having a lesson, please contact me and we can organise one.
