Whhhoooohooo.....here's my wonderful news!!!
I'm now permanently on the design team for RUBY STREET!!!
I'm soooo excited because I love love love working with the products
KRIS charmingly arranges and sells in her store!
If you look in the 'ART GALLERY' you will see this pic of me (3yrs) along with other designers Behind it will be my gallery ......way way too exciting!!

Here's my latest creation using a pink doily as a background.

Dont you just LOVE those 'Tivoli Theatre' tickets!!


'My grandmother and her niece' They craved theatre and dances!!
My mother and Aunty. Quite a bit of the lovelies used came from 'Shopping Spree Sally' and 'Shopping Spree Susan'
My Mother and Aunty spent a lot of time at Dances and the Theatre too. Mum made all of her dresses including the one my Aunty was wearing. It was way too expensive to go buy all the dresses needed to cover these events!
You can check the challenge here....
Texture paste is used around the photos with some kindy glitz. Middle of winter, racing together in the wilderness of Cradle Mountain 'Dove Lake'. Most beautiful spot we love to visit every year. AWARDS The gorgeous Julie sent me this award (hugs missy xx) My dear Belgium friend sent me this award (hugxx)
Thanks so much Peggy!
The aim is to name 10 things you dont know about me....
1. I think in pictures
2. I'm cack-handed and can use both hands fairly well ( dh is the same!)
3. I dont need much sleep
4. Chocolate and coffee give me migraine (sad sad sad)
5. I would die without my electric blanket!
6. I detox twice a year
7. I dont cook (not can't cook) dh does the cooking
8. Hate strong wind - scares me
9. I grow little patches of blackberries on purpose just for Hannah
10. I lug the firewood and light the fire everyday.
A lovely moment - paige at ballet
The art garden. Inspiring and magical
Another pic of just a 'few' of my ribbons! LOL! teehee
