E2C Mini Retreat 2014

I have just spent a 3 day weekend with some wonderful like minded women. The annual E2C Mini retreat is a one of my two best getaway weekends.
Here are my bouts of creativeness.....

Miss Maiya and her very handsome Daddy, Cam. Such a beautiful happy little girl xx.

Same photo.. completely different take on it.

These pictures were all taken on our weeks holiday in Melbourne during the winter school holidays with my brother and his family.

We had a wonderful week.

And here is the newest edition to the family, Miss Charlotte.

With her Mummy, Mara, holding her, her Daddy, Logan, her Grandma, Sue, and her Great Grandma, Thelma. 

These two photos were taken by Jackie D Photography.

 And saving the best til last...  ;)

My bestie and I in the role of Chauffeur for the amazing E2C Retreat.

Cards to Donate

A friend is a member of a local stitchers group and each year they raise money for a local charity,
this year happens to be my main work place. 
There will be a table for donations so I thought I would make some cards.

I am really happy with the results..I think I made about 30....

Thank you for visiting.

There's this funny young lady that I work with who has a marvelous time, mostly when she has put something odd in my handbag.. There has been  an amazing assortment and some of it just plain rubbish, or a full can of beer, or a whole packet of glitter stars..opened mind you, or a little doll, or a pencil  or what ever  she can find.. 
This time she stuck these little cuties to my sunnies...  
Paybacks are always fun.. sometimes she doesn't find stuff for days.. this time however was instant.
I popped them on my head as went about my job as normal... when she came in through the door she went beetroot red and was unable to function for about 10 minutes... 
it was a great day..
So Miss Jaydee .. this is for you.

Oh and by the way its on its way to WW1  for the White and Pomegranate challenge.

My Grandmother's Locket.

My Grandmother's Locket.

ANZAC Day this year saw us leaving home before 5am to attend the Dawn Service 45 minutes away. This locket was given to Grandma by Grandpa, inside has his portrait, with him in Army uniform and a lock of his hair...(which Fletch thinks is gross and disgusting...)  :) 

Now that he is in Naval Cadets it just seemed right to put the two together. 

I wore the locket and Fletch Guarded the Colours at the Dawn Service, March and Guarded the Colours again at the mid morning service.

I am  so proud of him.

So this LO is going to White with 1

I have really enjoyed doing this white and gold LO.... Thanks Sandra xo

I can't believe it's been a year since I last blogged.. I have done some LO's since then... really I have..
I have been super lucky to attend the fabulous Escape2Create retreat held recently near beautiful Port Lincoln... Just a tad biased on both accounts...
Here are my LO's from the weekend of bliss....
Just us girls xx

This gentleman was a beautiful soul and has been greatly missed by all who knew him. I think this  was at the Marla Gymkhana with my very capable sister in law -Annie.

My bestie..   Sandra   what an awesome job she does as the Retreat's own chauffeur....I was lucky enough to be her assistant this year . woo hoo lol....

My very own Mr Fix It... He has been working away at our deck space for sometime between 6 or 7 day weeks at work and long hours...
I really love the background effect here...  

To me the journalling says it all..

 My 6 year old nephew and his parents took my son (15) and I to the local Fauna Park.
He proudly told us (several times.. incase we didn't get it the first time) that we had to see "the rarest bird in the world."

 This one was courtesy of the aforementioned Sandra.. who challenged me to use a sketch to produce a LO.... Challenge complete..
Our little man "Wally" AKA ..our second son .. Thanks Tiff, is very much a lapdog.. regardless of the laptop... as long as he is on our lap .. he's happy.

Whist at the fauna park, my lovely sister in law put her tote down to take some photos... meanwhile a very inquisitive kangaroo sticks her nose inside and finds the lamington .. and  proceeded to have a nibble...

I take Wally up to the local Aged Care Centre and the Aged wing of the local hospital sometimes.. he loves it and so do they..
My Mr Partner Person is concerned about Wally accidentally scratching the Residents and causing skin tears so he asked me to whip up some socks for Wally.... 
Well.... Wally reminded us of a cat with wet feet when he finally started walking.. which took him about 10 minutes... not happy Jan ..
When he realized they were Ok, he was running with them on, he sat on laps, investigated and enjoyed himself.
Funny little man.

Thank you for visiting my space... note to self... blog more...

Much love... have a great day xo.
