Friday Catchup

Phillip Phillips won YAY!!

We went to Jersey Boys last Tuesday night. So good. LOVED it!! Wanted to jump up and dance and sing LOL.

I have been making flax flowers, well trying to anyway. I found this tutorial here. You also need to know the protocol on gathering the flax etc. Here is that info, scroll down for the protocol. They don't take long to make.
These 2 are different designs from the above instructions. I pulled apart some flowers we had in the office to see how to make them. They look pretty good I think. One of them looks like a koru.

American Idol

'If you don't have a dream, there's no way to make one come true' said Steven Tyler the other night on American Idol. I love it. So true.

So I have loved Phillip Phillips right from the start of this season. He has been my absolute favourite, but because he is so unique and quirky I didn't think he would appeal to everyone. How wrong was I. I am so happy he is in the final 2. And I would love him to win. He is such a talent. Here's one of his American Idol songs.

Small Pleasures

Daisies picked on a morning walk.
The fact that something tattooed into your skin can end up looking so perfectly drawn on.
Loving something I created in my art journal.
The lovely sweet strong smell of the flowers on the lemon tree.
This photo of the Super Moon setting.
Love Life!!

Friday Catchups

Emma shifted to Hamilton last week. She has a new job at a salon there called 'Hair Gallery'. She loves it and decided Hamilton is her home for now :( Super glad she loves her job and is doing well, just sad she left home again, lol.

James shifted to Mt Albert yesterday. He has scored his dream job as NZ rep for Electric. He will be travelling around alot and attending snowboarding and surfing events and heaps of really cool things, as well as stocking shops with all the cool Electric sunglasses and other products. Exciting times for him.
Might have to put an order in for some of these. Cool colour.

Samoa, here we come. We did it, finally booked a trip to Samoa. YAY!! Can't wait!!
I want to go here. To Sua Ocean Trench. Looks amazing. Might need to get fit to climb that ladder though I think.
