It finally happened... just when we thought we were never going to be asked to be Foster Carers, we suddenly ended up with two children late Friday night. We are now caring for a 9yo girl and soon 4yo boy. So busy..... I had forgotten how much little children want from you and these two need constant attention :)

We are settling in, a few tears and tantrums, but we'll get there. Not sure how long this will be for, but I will be absent from my Blog for a little while I think.

Now.. for exciting news.... Rebekah is going to be induced on Thursday night! she has to stay in hospital so they can keep an eye on her and Lachlan, but by the weekend, we will be Grandparents. I will, of course, be posting pictures here ASAP so I can brag LOL

Have wonderful day wherever you are!

New Freebie

I am going to try again with a Freebie... lets hope this one is more successful! I have tested these downloads and they work fine for Gary, so I hope you don't have any issues :)

Link to download Part One HERE .

Link to download Part Two HERE .

Link to download Part Three HERE Link removed. Password if required is "mozart" without the quotes! Please come back and leave a comment if you download, I love reading them!

My Scrap Chick has the most amazing sale on at the moment - 65% off - so I had to take advantage of this... as you do ! LOL

This was one of my purchases..... Nativity 1 is one of a series of three files designs as 12" projects for display. So far I have only completed the first of the series, but it cut beautifully and I am on the hunt for two more matching frames to finish the three. I used cardstock from DCWV stacks, inked the edges and cut on my KNK Maxx. I also used a white gel pen to add some little stars to my night sky. I am really pleased with the way it turned out.

Thanks for looking!

Have a wonderful day wherever you are!

Have a wonderful day wherever you are!

tried again

to upload these files and now I am getting them corrupted when downloaded. It's official! I give up... working on a new freebie instead!

Wednesday, November 10, 2010

Sorry guys....

Uploading these freebies bites into my limited and expensive Internet time, and although I hoped that this time would work.... it seems it hasn't. I am so sorry to have wasted your time with this freebie, it wasn't for lack of trying I assure you, but this freebie is a non-event and I will not be uploading again. I have checked the zips here and they are fine, downloaded fine for me, so not sure what the problem is.... but I give in!!

Please don't hold it against me..... I will get a new freebie up ASAP.

have a great day wherever you are!

Frightfully Good Freebie

Well, we aren't having much luck at the moment with this Freebie are we!! I have uploaded the files again so I hope the links work properly now. Some times I think 4Shared hates me!

Please scroll down and check either post for this freebie, I have updated links on both previous posts.

Have a great day wherever you are!

and to finish off, I have been making some little pants for Lachlan, only a few more weeks til he is finally here! These are from Ottobre magazine 1/2009 #2 in a 50cm size. I made the waist a little smaller on the front two pairs after thinking that the original length allowed was too large. I hope they don't cut him in two now ! LOL
