Wow – 2009 went through so very quick in lots of ways, but also lots of things happened too…………operation slip – ups, broken toes, injured shoulders, too much rain but wonderful things too, new homes, little kitties, happy friendly times –


especially seeing Coldplay & Fleetwood Mac.

December CC – LSBS

Gee, I haven’t kept up my blog…seems I must be too busy with other things!

But the LSBS held their December Cyber Crop in early December &  I was able to complete a few challenges.

December CC Poster - LSBS

I have a few – not many – fantastic photos of my parents in their young years & chose to work on this LO of them together….one of the LSBS gals says it looks like my dad was just about to tour England in his cricketing gear!

The Way we Were

The next LO is of my frangipanis in the garden – my very favourite scent of a flower…

Essence of Summer

Another challenge was in regard to a Christmas Recipe…so I scrapped my mum’s pumpkin fruitcake, with my boiled fruit cake….

Cakie Cake

But when I went to the photo albums I really had no piccies of either cakes!! So I have cut a piccie out of a magazine……& made sure I took some photos while I was baking this year.

The next challenge was to make a Christmas card – using non-traditional colours & themes……I made the following card…but didn’t  notice the spelling mistake until too late!!!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I was very fortunate to be awarded an Encouragement Blinkie for these!! Yay!!

More cards!!

I realized that I needed more cards – so whizzed up another bunch. For the spripie  card I have actually used paper from a Coles mail out – great recycling hey!

Recycled, cuttlebugged, stamped, inked - lovely ribbon from Mel too.

Little Winner – woo hoo!

My lovely English friend won ‘Best Card Category’ in the Craft Stamper magazine….wow…how exciting & how fabulous!!

It was her first entry & she won hands down.  She receives a great stash of stamping gear, which her beloved kitties Bert & Simone checked out to make sure it was all OK.

Clare's Daisy Flowerpot & Bookmark Card - gorgeous!

Congratulations Clare!!!

Aren’t those kitties just so cute!

Started my Christmas cooking today,…I am on the way…

Festive Bark...a little nibble for choccie lovers

This little sweetie is made from dark & white chocolate, with pistachio nuts & cranberries.

I have also made a different bark, & I have sprinkled crushed candy canes into the swirled chocolate.  It is setting in the fridge now.  I will take it to the Trivia Christmas party, as well as the Ravers party.

We gave the pond a big clean late this arvo…2 gold fish live there …and put in 2 new plants…I think they really like it
