let the sun shine in

You'd think working for a telecommunications company means I should be communicating more with my blog right? Right! Forgive me - tumbleweeds have been passing through! Lol...I have some new papergoodness projects to share, but since we spent the whole day outdoors (it was sooo beautiful- bright + cloudless) I didn't get time to snap some projects by the time we got home! D'oh. So these will have to do:) Just some that I had in Picasa already.
This one was for the Hero Arts blog. Used my fave alpha stamps!



And this one was for the fabulous Lara!


Oh joy...Christmas is coming! Sweet joy.

Not mine...but hers!

This sweet owlie tin that is! Auntie Bee + Uncle Marc brought this gorgeous tin case for Miss J the 2nd, several weeks ago for her 4th birthday. It is just so darling...they filled it with sweetness too! Oh, its so joyful. Jorjy carries it around with her everywhere! I would too...if only she'd let me have a hold! Giggles!


I quickly stuck some photos of it whilst she was busy playing.

a crafty day:D

hahahaaaa...can you hear my laugh coming through your speakers? Ok- maybe not, but I'm laughing cos I actually got to do some scrapping today. YES- today. I have these shots (sooo blurry) of Miss J so I had to get a start on. Most are totally crazy and you can't really see anything except a head of crazy hair and fuchsia trackies! hahaaa...I was just taking all these "action" shots of her jumping on the bed going all crazy! So fun. They are last year's craziest shots I'd say. I think action shots rock. Seriously. So candid and unplanned. Go ahead try it...and if you have already (admit it- y'all got those kinda shots LOL) go ahead and scrapbook them!! Might take you a whole year..but hey. Gigs.



Peace my friends.
(shot from Miss J the 2nd)
Loves, N.
P.S some limited papergoodness has hit RK&P. Check 'em out. There's only one of each!

Bring the rain!

Ok! Not really..but whats up my friends. I have been in a cycle of the same old routine day in, day out! Can't wait for the school hols when I get one week to rest, relax and repurpose! Oh joy. But one thing we have been keeping up to date is the movies! (our fave get away spot!) and have seen X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Terminator Salvation and Transformers 2: Rise of the Fallen! Oh action movies so much. We are really just a couple of kids really. LOL:-)But of course, can't go past a good romance too. Oh and can't wait for New Moon! Seen the preview? Awesome.

I have so much to post, but not today! The weather is horrible and dark. Hence the title, LOL. Anyhoo, remember there is still time to enter the draw to win a $20 voucher to use at random kits and pieces. Here! Drawing will be in the next couple days!

Talk to you all soon my paperiers! loves.

have i?

....shown you these pretties? i'm pretty sure I have..but anyway...since I haven't got my camera to take shots (I pick it up tomorrow, yipee!!) I thought I'd dig through the photo archives and show you my random, for-no-reason, fun + funky ATCs (artist trading cards). They won an award a while back and I do love 'em so!
Hope they inspire you too! Make some little works of college art today! For those of you that don't know (sissy, I'm talkin' to ya - LOL) each card is 3.5" x 2.5" in size!

Random Kits and Pieces

I'm feeling a bit behind on the creative side of things! Apart from throwing together a quick layout, I long for a sit at my desk and to have time to look through my scrap stash. Do you ever feel that way? That you miss looking at your stash of things? I certainly do! And a play around of this and that.
Anyways, RK&P has been keeping me busy and also my course, domestic bliss and our children! I long for the weekends:-) I always did, but with everything full time I R E A L L Y long for the weekend...are you feelin' me?! But, I wouldn't want it any other way. I am so happy + contented, life is good.

i did what most scrappers do....

...and did some much needed scrapbooking late last night when I couldn't sleep! I suppose I had brain overload from school and couldn't let my studies go, so my brain was still on overdrive! So I did some creating. Aaaaah, nothing like sorting through papers + embellishments and rummaging through the stash of goodness! I love it...heehee, don't we all!
Loving me some sassafras!

and this one for my DS' scrapbook...a photo from last year! Birthday photos are so precious to scrap aren't they, and boy have I got a ton to catch up on! Lol, I suppose I'm not the only one!! And with our eldest daughter turning the big 13 tomorrow, I'll have a ton more!

would love to see what you've be
would love to see what you've been up too!

a lil' sweet discovery

One of Jorjy's mini books I made for her a while ago! It was in one of my old cropping bags! Dang...I seriously thought I'd lost it. It was so nice to go through it and talk to her about it again. This time being w/ her being a bit older (and me too LOL) she understood better all the lil' details I wrote in it. She has since slipped it into her backpack to show her nana tomorrow! Sweetie. But I did photograph some of the pages for you to see:-) This book is so bulky, the pages are chipboard...choc full of embellies. Isn't that just the way though. Giggle.
painted some chipboard thickers and added a handmade birdie tag to the front cover....

...Elsie c/board buttons + pp, polka fabric, MM trim + alpha and MM frame....

...handcut felt edge, Elsie alphas + c/board buttons, BG pp, white signo pen....

....Elsie pp, handmade felt flower, MM c/board alphas + frame, owlie button.

P.S Something n e w instore today! Woot!

making things is always....

so much fun when you get time! This weekend I am going to make some more things, but here's what I finished off today...just relaxin' and listening to some tunes!
A lil canvas! this is only like 4"x6" its the size of a photograph! I used my spesh technique of stringing buttons and securing the buttons down! I love this idea:-) Also so C O O L on cards and the like!

{materials: canvas, teal paint, buttons, love Elsie ribbon, HG heart pin, Doodlebug rub-ons, puff paint, felt + some index prints}.

Annnnd this card-turned-art print/hanging! I began making it as part of this card swap that I'm in, and it began to look all wrong to me the more I kept adding on to it! Have you ever had one of those times when this happens? Surely, I'm not the only one LOL!! Anyways, I think it turned out okay...I really do love this paper range from American Crafts...actually I love everything AC..and their cardstock range! Y

The colours are delish and bright. A nice change.

{materials: American Craft accent thickers, alpha thickers, cardstock, patterned paper. Also, used embroidery floss + old book page}.
Yes, I love the distressed look...still!
happy weekend. Make some thing.
