Retirment list update


Typepad makes it easier to allow lists to updated list on my new webpage!


A weekly roundup!

Slack blogger. Yup that is me. There has been a fair bit going on but I just haven’t had time to blog about any of it. That and I have had a couple of migraines this past week. Ewww yucky!

Saturday last weekend was my brother’s 30th birthday. We went to one of the local pubs in town with many family members and had a great meal. Afterwards, the kids had a ball in the local park.

Picture of my brother, his wife, my niece, my kids and my SIL’s niece. Warren told the kids to pull funny faces, and of course, look at the ones that listened!

I tried going on the swing at the park, and it wasn’t made for adults is all I can say. I think this picture of me says it all... LOL and now I have a huge yucky bruise on the side of my thigh... I was going to take a picture of it, but then again, I don’t think the whole world needs to see my naked thigh!

Josh had a major meltdown at school on Wednesday morning, he wanted to be Mr Independent and walk into school by himself. It ended up with me carrying him in like a baby and sore arm muscles to this day still.

Wedding plans are moving along. Still need to make place cards but here are some pics of the hen’s party invite and wedding invite. Just over 2 weeks to go now. Still need to organise my jewellery (know what I want though) and just had my hair dyed today.

(Invites in my journal as a wedding keepsake) Sorry for crappy pics!
Materials list: (Hen’s night invite)
Cardstock: Soft sky, wild wasabi
Stamps: Big on Spring
Ink: Basic Black, Soft Sky
DSP: Spring silhouettes

Materials list: (Wedding invite)

Had a few SU workshops and have my final class for March tomorrow. We are making this explosion card.
Materials list:

The new catalogue is released in less than 3 weeks and I can’t wait. I haven’t got my copy yet and am anxiously waiting for it. If anyone wants to pre-order a catalogue they are $12 picked up from me in Skye or $15 delivered. Contact me on or call me on 0407 353 325.

Having a bad day here, got slugged a fine for mail that didn’t have enough postage, more than happy to pay the additional postage but the $1.50 extra per letter I am not!!! I wish I was contacted before they sent them all and charged me an additional $51! Got sent a parking infringement in the mail today too for parking on the nature strip while taking Josh and Callum to school. Cranky, but I can cope that. Problem is, the street (well court) I was parked in, if I parked on the road, you can barely get another car past. Okay, gripe over!

Best go to bed. Need an early night since the migraines are giving me the s&%^s!

Retirement list

The long awaited retired stamps and accesories list is now here. I for one, have been anxiously waiting for it as we (as Stampin' Up! demonstrators) didn't get advance notice like we do for mini catalogues...

Just briefly, I will mention that my settings have all gone haywire as I am currently switching over to Typepad and had an operator error on my blogspot blog. For the month of March, I will be updating both my blogs, and (The difference in the two blog addresses, aside from one being blogger and the other being typepad is the typepad address will be my married name from next month).

This year, Stampin' Up! has listed all retiring items as a pdf document which can be downloaded
from here. I am a little sad to see some of the stamp sets going, (I am losing 34 stamp sets!) but then, I can only get excited about what is to come in the new catalogue.

P.S. If anyone else has any thoughts that might make things easier to read/understand etc. feel free to contact me so I can work with what you, my customers want.
