I Can’t Believe It Either

On Thursday I went to register Elisha for three year-old kindy.

Where he will be attending next year.

Insert lots of common phrases and catch-cries.

While there I bumped into some mums whom I haven’t seen since the first few months of Elisha’s life. First lady tapped me on the shoulder and asked if my name was Tara and I had a little boy Eli… she was from the St. John of God Murdoch mums group. Then the next lady asked if I didn’t happen to go to the Leeming mum’s group. I’m so glad she asked because I had been staring at her baby trying to work out why I knew him but didn’t know him. She used to come along to the mothers group with her daughter Chantal. Truly bizarre.

Also bumped into Anita.

Speaking of bumping into people, at my Stampin’ Up! workshop today I had my first “I know you!” moment… a supervisor from my days of working at Target.

I love bumping into the past.

Pinkvasion and other news

This layout has taken me forever to share.  I did it for the sketch sample for Little Scrapbook Shop’s October Cybercrop… and the November CC is next weekend!  Oops.  I have to confess I don’t fee lit is the best layout I’ve ever produced, and when I look at it I can see things I would definitely do different.  That said I am not a “pull it apart start again” girl, so this is how it is.

Forward Motion

Cayley can now go forward. And is occasionally managing to go forward more often than she goes backwards.

So she might look like a seal, but she’s getting somewhere.

I also turned the car seat around on Tuesday and she had her first forward facing drive yesterday.

And we have words:
Mum = mumumum
Dad = dadadad
Nan = nananan
Pop = ba
Kitty = titty (said in a very high pitch with extreme excitement)
Amen = mameh
Boo = boo
Why thank you! = ta

She’s growing up!

In Remembrance

I have just sent out my November Stampin’ Up!® newsletter and there is something that I want EVERYONE to know right away, and will possibly hear me talk about all over the place!

During October David Abbot Stampin’ Up! Austrlaia’s General Manager passed away from an extremely rare blood disease.

Stampin’ Up! is just like a big family and are doing all they can to support David’s wife and three young children. One of the ways that they are doing this is by putting all the proceeds (not just profit) from the sales of a special pre-release stamp set into a fund which they have set up.

familystampset

The stamp set retails at $73.95 plus postage and handling. I am offering a 10% discount bringing the set to $72.50 including the shipping. PLUS I will be offering a $50 voucher to every tenth purchaser of the set.

Please phone or e-mail me to order your set. I accept cash, direct deposit, cheque or credit card (via PayPal) payments.

A Bit Unusual, but Important

I don’t normally post my craft and Stampin’ Up! stuff on this blog… but for this cause, definitely!
