It's been awhile.....

I feel the urge to blog.

Maybe it is procrastination over the stuff I need get done! Some things don't change but then some things change too much.

Not too sure what I am going to blog about yet. I know creativity has been absent far too long and I need to do something. Nothing makes the heart sing than being in the flow and being creative.

Watch this space.

Wishing everyone a Happy Easter.

That time of year..........

busy, busy, busy

Amanda has a birthdya in a couple of weeks. Made her invites. Very easy - printed out on cardstock (2 to one A4), rolled up like a scroll, ribbon and twine and a tag (used Kaisercraft gorgeous Miss Nelly) and a bracelet lolly. They got the thumbs up from Amanda and her friends! Looking forward to her party - I am hoping the sleepover part goes well!

Made some Xmas decorations - angels. These are so cute. Found the instructions here:

Better get on to the Xmas Cards.

I have scrapped..........

Spent the weekend with some very cool friends at a fabulous retreat organised by Louise Willians. I broke my scrapping drought! It was good to get back into it.

 My first layout since July! Felt so good to just play.

 One of my reflection shots I did for my portfolio.

 Using the challenge pack which was Halloween themed.

This photo is actually a reflection in a puddle!

of my boy who had his first official school production performance last night. The production is called Scheherazade and it was really really good. And of course Simon was absolutely awesome. He had one of the bigger speaking roles.So proud! Makes for a busy week though with family coming for dinner and then the show last night and again tonight and I am off again to the show tomorrow night.

I thought I would share some of my last Kaisercraft assignments. Havent scrapped since my last assignment because I just havent had time but I am starting to get itchy fingers! Want to play with the few things I got from SENZ. Must make some time to play this weekend!

Have to remember....

to not to suggest things. LOL. Amanda has a had a student teacher for most of the year and she is leaving today so I suggested to the teacher I could make her a mini album. This was on Wednesday, got the photos yesterday and it had to be ready for school this morning. Put in the mix, having to bake for the cake stall fundraiser on Wednesday and the shared lunch today, lets just say I have been busy. LOL My assignments havent had a look in yet this week. My task for this evening and the weekend.

Here are some photos I have taken for the first two weeks.

My fav from week 1

And my photos for last week which was about exposure. Had to do one with a fast shutter speed, a slow shutter speed, one with backlighting and one getting the exposure right on a white peice of paper.

Excited today to receive my stamps with my image from the photo which got into the top 30 for Auckland Photo Day. Was a little dissapointed that they had to crop it but very cool non the less.

My favourite photo mag is Practical Photography and the last one had an article about this guy. LOVE his stuff.

I have my last kaisercraft projects to share but I will make that another post.
