I heart Kaiser

I've just been on a spending spree. Love Love Love the new Q1 ranges and had to have me some of the new Loire Valley range and a few bits and pieces. Got home this afternoon and this parcel was on my doorstep. Couldn't have come at a better time! Yeh now just to find the time to play!!

What have you bought lately????

Did ya miss me?????

Sorry its been a while, you take a short break and the world just goes haywire...

How sad about Michael Jackson, a true ecentric individual who had an art all of his own! So many tributes on Fox at the moment, have watched quite a few of his video clips over the past few days... Was very saddened to hear that he had passed away as I was for Farrah as well! Though she is in such a better place now. Cancer is a horrible terrible unnecessary disease...

On my mum front, now news is still good news right! She is still having blood tests, but is improving. Not as sick as she was, but not 100% either. Nothing came back with the animal viruses either, none of the common human viruses, no tumours, cancer, etc. Her liver counts have gone down from 238 down to 139 now, so they are dropping, which is a good thing, and also an indication of why some days she is feeling a little brighter.... So there is sunshine at the end of the rainbow! Yeh!!

Also been having wisdom teeth problems. Yuk! Why were these ever invented? I am sure that 99% of us have to have them out! You would think that in the case of revolution that us humans would slowly fade them out! Last weekend I ended up going to the hospital, dentists instructions, as I could not get an emergency visit until Monday. To cut a long story short, I found out I had an abcess on the bottom RHS wisdom tooth, and top and bottom RHS wisdom teeth were impacted. Pain!!! Understatement!! On Wednesday I finally got them both pulled out, in the chair, no happy gas, just block injections & stitches...... OMG traumatic! I cried, I sooked, I yelled, I hated it, I came out shaking like a leaf, white as a ghost, and my legs trembling until I had to sit down.
From Wednesday up until today, I haven't really done much at all. Haven't even ventured out of the house. Doped up on pain killers, watching movies, (have to admit - watched Twilight a few times - totally addicted), sipping everything through a straw. Hopefully in another few days I can open my jaw and start to eat normally again! Thanks Sandy for the visit and the choccie, I have tried eating it, just keep it in my mouth and suck on it, savour the flavour. You are such a gem! And also thank you from the bottom of my heart to those of you who have emailed, or rang me to check on me! Love you girls, so blessed to have such gorgeous friends...
Though today I think I was going a little stir crazy, so I decided to create a project. I love Crate Papers Lemongrass papers. Had the pack sitting there and hadn't used it. So I decided I would make the Stationery Set by Becky Roberts. Well I must admit, I did finally get it finished this afternoon, after numerous interruptions. I love Becky Roberts, I know I have you addicted too Janey! She is the bomb when it comes to creations. You just have to check her out and get yourself some of her creations....

Also just had to share this cute photo of one of my cats - Levi, totally sound asleep, curled up on the lounge the one that is closest to our fire. She layed here today for hours while I was scrapping and couldn't resisit to take a pic. How content does she look! Oh to have a cats life!!!

Isn't she just gorgeous! I love my cats!!!!

Well all, thats me, time to top up on my drugs, LOL, and go to bed and read! My little boys are already in bed and hubby isn't far off falling asleep on the lounge. Love Saturday nights like these, a warm house from the fire, everyone settled, and some quite time to read a book!

Goodnight all! Sweetdreams..

Love Lisxx

Just popping in

to let you know that I am still around! LOL! Not much happening in my camp at the moment. Spending most of my time at my parents as my mum is ill (something wrong with her liver), had heaps of tests so far, but still no answers. Been busy cooking dinners, etc. So not much happening in my world at home.

Though I have managed to scrap one layout! Pagemaps created a sketch for a comp called Love me some Basic Grey! I really loved the sketch, so I thought I would give it a go, seeing that I haven't been all that creative lately!

Here is the Sketch...Heres my layout!

Oh and one more thing I have done, I had my hair recoloured. Gone is the blonde locks and in comes the warm shades for winter! Loving it!!! Also love spending a few hours in the salon on the receiving end! Some girly me time!!!

Well girls thats me for now! Will update as soon as I have some news on my mum! Well on the positive front we know it isn't cancer, swine flu, malaria, jaundice, Hepatitis A, B, C, or D! Her liver is enlarged, and a normal persons count should be somewhere between 0 -30, (closer to 0 the better), mums is 238!! So this week she is being tested for zoonoses, as she works with animals at the vets and her doctor thinks she may have picked up an animal virus, like Q Fever, Brucellosis, Leptospirosis, etc. Gosh what mouthfuls. Crossing fingers we have answers this week.

Keep well and warm (Gosh how cold has it been???)

Chat soon, Loving Ya's

Friends are so.......

Important in my life... I don't know where I would be today without the friendships I have with my friends. But this post is dedicated to my internet / scrapping friends. Where would I be without the internet. I met these gorgeous girls via the internet at a scrapping forum, 3 years ago, and not long after become a part of my daily life. I check in on their blogs daily just to see what they have been up to. We chat via email constantly, and even make the time to catchup a few times a year, even though two of us come from Newy, two from Sydney and one from Victoria. This is a friendship that I treasure more than words can explain!

Scrapping Best Friends - close up
