Warm Winter Woollies...

Kia ora koutou

...Oh my gosh, winter's icy chill is upon us - freezing my akuna ma tahtahs off here, lol.  
Any hoo, since my previous blog (which was a while ago), sorry, you might of guessed - I've been
super-duper busy. 

Went to The Paper Peacock camp at Glentui, where I created a cool colourful album for myself and made my first box in card for mum's mother's day card, I've gotta tell ya - that was the beginning of the end for me - absolutely love this card, hence the many other box in a card that follow :)   Designed a layout  for the Sunday learn a layout group.  Made a couple more dresses, one for a very rare date night with my husband and I also made a very warm woolly winter coat.  Started training for my new full-time job with New Zealand Post and I stumbled upon a very fortunate opportunity to use my diploma - woop woop, will definitely keep you updated...exciting times!

I really need to get a new camera, my crappy phone camera just doesn't cut it - so I apologise for the poor quality pics.

Opportunity knocks...

Last year I gained a certificate in Small Business Management through Te Wananga O Aotearoa and subsequently signed up to do the Certificate in Money Management this year.  It has been awesome, the things I've learnt and most of all the people I have met.  One of those like minded people I met was Louise, she has her own business in designing and retailing vintage (more specifically 'Rockabilly') fabrics....Yes! Oh my goshhh!  Right up my alley - I love that style...So we got to talking, needless to say watch this space!
Heres the link if you would like to check out her website Lady Lou.


In my last post I mentioned how my family are not just pretty faces but are also very talented, well my beautiful sister Latoya has been at it again lol.  I am so impressed and inspired by her cool creations tutorial/demonstration videos on you tube!  Check it out - here are the links   
What's Your Flavour?  Chic Boutique Canvas Art

I chose a song - my sister Latoya reckons it's boring, lol...Have a listen, you tell me?  I don't think it's boring, it's one of those songs that stick in your head :)
Milky - Just The Way You Are

That's my lot for now, thanks for having a look :)

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew
of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest
twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and
was hoping maybe you would have some experience
with something like this. Please let me know
if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
