Giant snow globe

I love snow globes! So I was excited toget the chance to be inside a giant snow globe this Christmas. My Friend Anne invited me to come along with her and her boys to have some fun.

Winter wonder land
Anne and Asher. Unfortunately Asher found the noise of the fan a little scary.
But Taylor had a blast throwing snow at me.
He loved the falling snow.
What great fun!

Christmas card class number 1

As promised here are the cards we made at my first Christmas card class. We had so much fun.

This card is one from a few years ago too that I just love and so did the ladies that came to the class.
This card was inspired by one I was given from Janice klass.

Christmas card class

We had so much fun at the first card class that we had to have another one. We will be having more classes next year I'll keep you posted. I was about to post the cards when I realized I haven't down loaded them off the camera but will do soon. Any way we made this card that I actually designed about 3 years ago.

I used Pear Pizzazz one of my new favorite colours.

I Love this card. Unfortunately you can't see the glitter on the santa sacks.
I made these treat bags for the ladies. i had so much fun making them.

Christmas cards

I just got this wonderful card from my friend Kim. Isn't he a cheeky little elf! I think he has something naughty behind his back.

This is the card I gave Kim. I know she loves boggly eyes so i couldn't resist.
I love punch art. This is another card using SU's Two-Step Bird punch.

Marsh update

Unlike a lot of my friends we don't have children. We are however great animal lovers and would have a zoo if we didn't live in the city. Our little kitten Marsh is now 6 months old and is no longer little. At 4 kg's he can only sit on my knee if a leg hangs off. Like most birmans he can be quite a naughty little boy. He is so playful and is always up for a game.

Marsh jumped out our second story window to explore. Then he couldn't work out how to get back inside (or didn't want to). Before I could get upstairs and wanting to get to his sister Ayla (our dog) he scared the heck out of me by jumping!

Two best friends Ayla and Marsh are together all the time. They love to sleep and play together. Marsh even hops in Ayla's kennel to sleep with her.

When I'm around the house marsh is often my shadow. He was helping me out in the garden the other day.

Poor Marsh! Off to the vet he went to have his little boy parts removed. I just had to post this photo of him. When we got home he sat on the cool floor for about 1/2 an hour. His poor little face seemed to say "What have they done to me mummy"!

Even though I'm not allowed on the bench I had to hop in mum's shopping bag.

Fun run

As some of you may be aware at the beginning of this year I decided to get off the couch and get fit. Part of my goal was to be able to run the 5 km fun run held during the Auckland marathon. When I first started running in march my PT (personal trainer) Ming asked me to run for 15 min. Well after 6 minutes I couldn't breath and had to lie down!

So here I am less than 1 km to go and feeling comfortable and relaxed.

Yes I did it!
I was so surprised at how easy it was. I finished 2nd in my age group and 25th out of 195 women! So now I have a new goal to run a little further. I must mention my friend Catherine who ran the whole marathon again this year! She's amazing.

The wonderful Owl punch.

I've just received my two step owl punch so thought I would have some fun. I came across two wonderful cards created by Darlene. Being Labour weekend I have extra time to sit and card so might see what else I can do with this little owl.

I love how these cards have a little surprise inside.

Aren't they just too cute!

Marsh settles in.

Hi everyone my name is Marsh. My humans Rob and Nadine are providing me with my every need. They don't do to bad a job I must say.

I can surf the net when ever I like.

I love to explore. When ever a human opens a door I have to have a look inside.

I love playing in my new cardboard box.

I love the new Stampin' up catalogue, here I am keeping it safe for my human.

And I guard the bourbon too.

Then it's time for some R'n'R.
My big sister and I are great mates.

Midwifery Conference Rotorua

This weekend some friends and I attended the New Zealand College of Midwives conference in Rotorua.

Here we all are from front Niki, Clare, Suzie, Linda and Me.
We had a traditional Maori welcome.

The men's Haka was very powerful.
Early one morning Suzie and I went for a walk along Lake Tarawera.
So quiet and peaceful.

After a day of information overload Tina Turner helped us unwind.
Saturday nights dinner at the Blue bathes. Everything looked so beautiful.
Before dinner we had some fun synchronized swimmers.

We had a great time
On our way home we took time to take in the beauty.
Then it was time for a little fun and relaxation at the Polynesian Spa
A great conference and a great time.

Happy fathers day!

Man cards are sometimes hard to make but this fathers day I had no trouble deciding what to do. My wonderful dad has an avocado orchid and has just brought a bright orange tractor he's very proud of. So what better than to make a card of his tractor!

Here I am having a ride on the new tractor.
