Inspired again!

Life is always so full, but this weekend (which happens to be a long one!) has had a lot in it.

Because it is a long weekend, I didn't have to go to work today and was able to enjoy some other activities. This afternoon I decided to check out some blogs, which sparked my creativity, so I did some card making. Yay!! I felt so inspired, I made 5 cards!! Here is one of those creations. I have only used two colours, Not Quite Navy and Kraft, and no white or vanilla — not sure if I've ever done that before. Anyway, it seems to have worked alright.

The rest of the weekend went like this…

Friday afternoon I picked up the kids from school, and an additional two girls for a sleepover party for Zali. There was some wakefulness in the middle of the night which made us all tired the next day (but that is another story!) The girls went home in the morning and the rest of the day was spent cleaning house and preparing for a workshop.

Saturday night I did a workshop for some friends (the girls that keep me in business!) It was fun as always but I didn't get home until 11:30pm.

Sunday I was up early doing last minute preparation for the guests which were arriving!
My two uncles from the USA have come out to Australia for a short time to visit my grandma. My parents, aunty, grandma and uncles are going on a little holiday and decided to come via us so that we could see them. I haven't seen my uncles since I was a kid and my grandma hasn't had all four of her children together for 46 years, so this is a very special time for them! My cousin and her kids arranged to rendezvous at our house (from Parkes NSW) so that they could see everyone as well. So… on Sunday we had 16 in the house. My cousin went home that afternoon and we had 12 for dinner. We also spent until lunchtime today with everyone (and we squeezed some sightseeing in too!) It was a great time, I really enjoyed being with them all :)

Now that I have done some creating and blogging, it is time to get organised for the week ahead (school, work etc) so I had better go and do it!

Thanks for stopping by :)


  1. Wonderful to see you back creating again Shell. This colour choice is inspirational and love the card too. What a busy time you've been having, but it must have been fun seeing all the rellies together after such a long time.
