Go Outside

Memory Box Garden

This was a fun project to do. When I received the pack from Scotties to make a project and instructions to  be sold as a kit, I wondered how I could do it and still make it my own style. Something I would love and want to keep myself. It was all beautiful stuff but sometimes you just don't know how you can put it together and still be true to you. But I did it and was very happy with what I came up with. This will definitely find a place on my wall somewhere.
There are still kits available at Scotties if you would like one. If you love masks and sprays and scrunching paper you will love this. Just give them a call.

Some LO's

Really love this big red spot paper by Echo Park.

So glad I changed my blog template, so much easier to work with. Just need a new banner now.

2 months ...

... since my last post. A lot has happened. I will fill you in soon, but first, today we start a new job. Rob & I are the new managers of the Port Waikato Top 10 Holiday Park. So you could say today is the start of a new life for us. And how symbolic being the first day of spring. We are very excited about this new venture.
I have updated my blog template finally. I was so scared to do it in case I lost everything, but am slowly managing to add some of the nic nacs back that I had. Will take a few days though.
Very sadly, my stepfather passed away a month ago today, 1st August. He had asbestos cancer. He had been diagnosed with it just over a year ago. It has been an incredibly sad and hard time for our family especially Mum. My heart is broken for her and him.
I have been trying to do some art lately and have managed a few things. I will have to post pictures soon. Meanwhile here is a picture of some curtains I made from old doilies and vintage hankies.
Happy Spring
