Too Busy To Blog

OMG. Three weeks since I have blogged! We've been busy meeting real estate agents and the bank. Also going through all of our cupboards to find things for the garage sale which by the way was very successful. We made close to $400 which was only made possible with the help of my friend, Shane - she's the garage sale guru! Amazing how one person's trash is another's treasure.
Last week we had a couple of coffee dates with Penny's good friend, Angus from daycare and his Mum, Jolene and also my good friend Petrina. Coffee always tastes better with friends.
I took the children to the dentist last Monday and the dentist suggested that we have family photos within the week as Nick has 8 wobbly teeth!! I knew about one but 8. Poor child is going to have liquefied food! Petrina took some fantastic family photos for us at the local swamp on Saturday afternoon. We haven't ever had professional family photos and who needs a professional when I have such a talented friend who takes photos like these. I am just so pleased with them.

This week I am onto card making as we have so many friends and family with birthdays in Sept/Oct. Not a whole lot of scrapping going on. I just can't get into it at the moment. Too much else to think of. Craig is home for one night out of the next ten so I am trying to be very organised. Wish me luck.

Have a great week.

Big Decisions

have been made around here recently, hence my absence from blog land. The big announcement which many of you already know is that we are moving to Brisbane. Craig has received a promotion in his job which will require us to move. So many more decisions need to be made before our move in December. Will we rent or sell our house? What to keep and what to dispose of. We've been in our present house for almost 13yrs and so have accumulated a lot. Thank goodness I had a throw out a couple of years ago to ease my pain. I think a couple of garage sales will go on in the next few months. We have many sad goodbyes (although we'll only be 4hrs away) but many happy beginnings ahead.
Onto other things now. Thought I'd just show a photo of the tutu I sewed for Penny a couple of weeks ago.
I spent the afternoon with my scrapping friends today which was very relaxing and I'll show some photos of the simple LO's I completed later in the week. I certainly will miss this group of friends but hope to return for the annual retreat next April.
Have a great week.
