Inkurable Stampers ATC swap

I participated in an ATC swap with Inkurable Stampers and I recieved them back today. The theme was to use any of Tim Holtz's stamps.. I love all the ATC's and all the different ways people used the stamps.

What a weekend..

Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending a 2 day workshop with the wonderfully talented Judy Wilkenfeld. Wow this girl sure oozes talent and seeing her work up close and personal was a real honour, let alone learning her techniques and processes of creating a masterpiece.

Though I havent done any more on my book since the class (thanks to the lovely cough/cold bug), I cant wait to dive in and get it done.
I had a ball with all the girls who took the class. Spent most of the weekend in tears of laughter courtesy of my partner in crime Jen. Bouncy Bouncy.. Happy 1st week anniversary Jen...LOL I also got to meet the one of the worlds kindest, warm hearted and talented lady Ro Bruhn and see her wonderful jewellery. This lady is amazing..
Points for me to remember this weekend.
-Dinner with Judy, Jen and Ro
-Dinner with all the girls, and Jen's kiss of death of Judy's glass of wine poured all over Kathy.
-Hotel complaint about me and partner in crime for being too loud..LOL
-Buying stunning vintage pieces from Judy.. Wow she has some seriously nice stuff.
-Seeing, touching and hearing about Judy's Fair Maid of Perth book..
- bookshop in Kew
-Finally getting to meet the wonderful Coby.
After years of chatting online with her through Blue Bazaar..
-Wonderful organisers of the whole weekend, Marg and Kathy.. Thank you for bringing Judy down for us all...
Thank you Judy for a wondeful weekend of inspiration and teaching us some of your secrets..

Happy Mail Day

Today I recieved this wonderful nicho from PaperForest Designs which I won through my Halloween piece I did for Inkurable stampers last month. I was so excited when Sarah from Inkurable Stampers emailed me to tell me I had won one of the sponsors prizes. Thank you Sarah and thank you to Jo from PaperForest. Now any thoughts on how to decorate my lovely little nicho???

Rememberance Day

Last Tuesday I tagged along my daughters school excursion to the Shrine of Remembrance. The class entered their fabulous poster in a competition and won. Apparently the reason why they won was because when the shrine first opened, they released white doves. As seen in their poster. Though the kids didn't know that when they made it. The Shrine did a fabulous job of framing and displaying it. The kids got a small guided tour through the crypt and a prize of beautiful books for the school library.

This months theme over at Aussie Dares is "String." I made an ATC covering it with tiny squares of bakers twine in a seagrass matt feel, added a little Collections beach house, a few broken bits of shell and muslin..
