Having "crafter's block"

Hi all,

Yes, it seems that I am suffering the paper crafting equivalent of writer's block ... I am just not inspired right now.... and it's not good. Christmas is coming and and I have lots of other non-Christmas projects I need to do too. 

I have searched other blogs for inspiration but unfortunately most of you are from the US and have been making things for Halloween and Thanksgiving - Halloween is not generally celebrated in Australia and Thanksgiving is a US holiday only, so not so much with help from the "internets". 

Sigh ....

Hope to be back with lots of crafty things to show soon,

Home safe

Hi all,

Well, lucky for me the QANTAS shutdown ended 7 hours before I was due to fly (yay!) so my original flight left only one hour later than scheduled. All good. I cancelled my backup flight and now have a credit to use with Virgin within the next year.

Even better I got home in time to spend the day with some family and friends watching the Melbourne Cup day races and drinking some bubbly ... and putting a few bets on (I think we came out about even - nice)

Hubby made the most amazing pink champagne jelly desserts -- they are very strong so it may take me a few days to eat them all... whilst I was in the air coming home he made them and cooked some chooks and made bread, everything well organised for Melb Cup day. He is such a good chappy. I think he would make a better stay at parent than I do, but I am not keen on giving that job up :)

That's it. No more traveling for me until May next year (I hope). So now I can concentrate on Christmas Cards, Wedding invites and those thousand other craft things I've had on my list all year.

Have a great weekend,
