Christmas is coming early for me!!

I am so excited and completely inefficient at the moment. I should be packing but I am not. I am flying to Auckland on Wednesday to attend my son's graduation. I am then staying on with him for a few days before the rest of the family arrives and we spend Christmas together. It is the first year ever that I have not been at home with family. Most years Christmas involves one meal at one side of the family and the other meal with the other side. This year it will be very different. Four humans and 1 dog at our Christmas day. We are enjoying hot steamy days and will probably have a barbeque for our Christmas meals! Very different to all the picturesque snow scenes I have been enjoying on instagram!!

We have rented a house on a farm with a view of the sea. I am not sure what internet access we will have, so I may have a lot of catching up to do on my return!

I wish you and yours a fabulous, fun and safe Christmas and New Year.

P.S. I made the Christmas tree many years ago, there is a lot of upcycling involved. An ugly old picture frame, black velvet and tons of sequins!

My Time Machine Broke!!

It must have because I lost November and now I am freaking out that it is the beginning of December (I know that is a stretch but pretending keeps me sane)

I have had some internet challenges of late. We upgraded to ultra fast internet, which sounds fabulous but it did not like our computers and after countless phone calls and being advised to be patient, the upgrade was slowing our computers down, we finally figured it out on our own. It clashed with the latest Windows programme. (If you are a NZ Telecom user and have problems contact me and I will tell you the quick fix) Finally I could log on to the internet, I had missed A LOT. On You tube I no longer have comments or messages and have not yet managed to find them! I wish technology would stop speeding past and let me catch up.

During this time I did fall completely in love with instagram. It is so quick and easy and it was not affected by my internet problems on my phone at all.
If you want to see what I did for the last two months, here is the link.

I have made a number of journals, including this gorgeous one for Alysia

These are some of my latest journals at various stage of completion. I have had a few enquiries so I will show you the options here. 

EDIT: I am off on summer holiday for several weeks (Yippee!!!) and so I will not be able to process any sales or accept any commissions until I return.
I will have some journals for sale in the New Year.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you are all having a fabulous December
