TIGHT UNDIES ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well this morning has been one of those days.
Tammy has her tight undies on and we are all paying for it!!!!! LOL.
Me thinks she will be having either an early night tonight or maybe some time out in her bedroom. Gosh you've gotta love teenagers and attitude. They kinda go together don't they?
Hmmmmm.....................I'm trying to lay low and stay far, far away.
(P.S. HOT TIP!!!! If someone is giving you a hard time or they seem uptight - put this question to them. Have you got your tight undies on today?" )

I found a pattern and some fabric so that's a start. Now the fun begins.
I shall report back in when there's some show and tell.
Just let me know if you managed to get all 12 cards done and then you're in the draw for some of my new Handmade Daisies. (just a reminder - the challenge was to complete a card for each of the 12 weeks and then to let me know that you had completed them by leaving a link to your blog. If you missed out on completing some now is your chance - do the catch up and just let me know)

We did a few laps of the lake at the same time and then we headed off home again. We have had such a nice day.
Nice and relaxing - great way to spend family time.
Hope you're enjoying your break.

We had one of the most peaceful Christmas Day's yesterday - just our little family and Sean's mum and dad. We would normally celebrate Christmas day with at least 20 other people so it was nice for a change.
The highlight of my day would have to have been when our Emily presented us all with a handmade card that she created - she loves to work on the computer and had been doing some cutting and pasting with a photo of each of us. The day started off with a good old giggle.
The kids have woken up and are checking out their goodies again. I tell ya what - I love chocolate but the amount that is sitting around in our house is ridiculous. The kids managed to score chocolate from everyone. I explained to them that they were only to have 2 items a day. Of course they can throw some their mother's way if they like.........LOL!!!!
Not much else planned for today. We are just going to have a quiet one again.
Take care on the roads everyone - stay safe!!!!!!

She was awarded them for English, Geography and Science.
Well done Tam - what a great finish to your first year.
Luv Mum and Dad.
Here is the perfect recipe -
Mix this recipe
and add a little leftover scraps of paper (these papers are the other half of the Spellbinder cut pp.)
Then using this idea
Add some colours of the rainbow to create these beauties
I had lots of fun making these last night. This is also an excellent idea to use up those last bits of ribbon that you simply cannot throw out.
You could give it a try too.

Sorry I haven't been around much - it's been quite crazy around this place as I'm sure it has been at your place.
Here are my entries for the challenge that has been taking place over at Scrapbook Capital.
The idea of the challenge is to run for 6 weeks - each week Sharon has been giving us a new challenge. Week 1 - Ric-rac, Week 2 - bugs or butterflies, Week 3 - scallops, Week 4 - Blue, Week 5 - stripes and Week 6 - brads.
The idea was to add the new element each week - so week one just had to have the ric-rac on it then week 2 had to have the ric-rac and the bug and so on.
Thanks for a great challenge Sharon - I had stacks of fun.

So here we are. I used some old buttons and covered them with the Dove wrappers - I just trimmed about a centimeter from around the edge.
Now the "Nice" part of the "Naughty AND Nice" is the I have used a recycled yoghurt lid - the foil part. I whipped it through my Cuttlebug using the circle embossing folder. Pretty cool huh?
I used a bronzy cardstock to co-ordinate with the bronze in the wrapper and added a bronzy/brown ribbon and silver button and star.
That's it - easy peasy!!!
I have been busy picking daisies!!!!!!!!
Let me know what you think.
I especially love the red and green ones - of course!!!!!!!
Any questions? Just leave me a comment to the post.
My mother-in-law's friend has been busily making these gorgeous bracelets. I think they are rather funky. Not sure where she got the idea from – but I like it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They are made using thick elastic and every button is individually sewn into place. A lot of the buttons are vintage so that makes them just that little extra special. The brooches are sewn onto a circular disk and padded and a clasp at the back of brooch.
There are 10 bracelets (including 2 children’s bracelets) and 2 brooches.
Second instalment of bracelets added 1st December 09.
(PLEASE NOTE: BRACELET NO'S 1, 2, 8, 13 AND 15 ARE NOW SOLD!!!!!)
If you would like to purchase one - just in time for Christmas, leave me a comment and I can give you some details.
Thanks for looking.
