Found a cool website

I was on youtube last night looking for some tutorials after being inspired by Picture to Page yesterday.
Anyway, I came across this little gem of a stampin' up demonstrator..
dawn's stamping thoughts
She does a tutorial every day, so you can imagine how many videos she has. The link is for her blog and she has all of her tutorials there. So thank you Dawn for your inspiration - loving your all videos and cards!!

Back to bed for me...feeling quite yuck, and wondering whether it is the flu injection. :(

I am absolutely loving this series!!! I don't care what people say about it being "badly" written, etc, etc. For entertainment, I am thoroughly enjoying it.

Life is so short and why shouldn't we be allowed to read a book for pure enjoyment, rather than to sound all posh and "high and mighty" by dissecting it!!??

I have almost finishing the 4th book and will probably start again! So who else is with me and loves this series?? :)

Been busy

Well I've been busy making and organising things with Nicole for our friends' baby shower. So yesterday we went shopping for prizes for games, items for games and presents for mum-to-be.

We then made 20 invitations, and a nappy cake (one made out of disposable nappies). Very cool if we do say so ourselves :)
Will try and pop some pictures up later.

2 more days until 2009!!

A Year of Reading

After just finishing another novel I have thought back to all the books I have read this year. It certainly has been a year of reading for me! I love reading, but normally don't have the time. This year I have had such a burning desire to read, that most nights I will read a chapter or two before sleeping (much to my Dh's worry that I am not getting as much sleep as I should be in the first place!).
So here are some of the books I have read and enjoyed this year:
- PS I Love You
- The Jane Austen Book Club
- Wicked
- My Sister's Keeper
- The Tenth Circle
- Nineteen minutes
- Don't Kiss them Goodbye

Next on my list is The Tales of Beedle the Bard. Might have to go shopping next year for some more books!

Chrissy photos

It's been a long time since I have given an update!! I have done a bit of scrapping, not as much as I would have liked though!

Been very busy with work, but enjoying it all the same.

These are the photos I have altered on photoshop of our furbaby. I am going to use them on our Chrissy photos (which I am making this weekend!!)
