Not too long to go now ...

until the new challenge goes up at Scrap Jacked!  Bec has now introduced the entire Scrap Jacked team and will soon start showing off the prizes you can win by entering our January challenge.  We'd love you to become a follower so you don't miss any news!  First challenge goes up on January 5th ... so keep your eyes peeled here.

I've been having some fun playing along with a few challenges ...

Whilst I was feeling the Christmas spirit, I decided to do this month's challenge at Kraft It Up!  The challenge is to scrap a Christmas photo using non-traditional colours & knots ... so I knotted the thread through my buttons & I'm sure that pink, orange, green & blue are pretty non-traditional :).

I'm still on a mission to find my boy mojo so I went looking for some inspiration at Scrap the Boys.  This month the question is ... is your boy a Dancer or a Prancer?  Well, mine is BOTH!  He's the biggest show-off & loves nothing more than letting his big sister dress him up & dancing around.  My daughter's dance teacher says that he gallops better than some of her girls LOL!

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas!  I hope that you have a wonderful day filled with lots of love & here's hoping for a fantastic 2011 filled with lots of paper fun xx

This is what has taken over our lives ...

Everyone says that it's a kitchen that sells a house ... let's just say that wasn't true in our case LOL.  We bought our house about eight years ago & instantly hated the red kitchen ... surprisingly, for the size that it was, it had minimal bench space ... but it's taken us until this year, and the appliances falling apart, to finally get it done.

There was tonnes of storage but the height of the overhead cupboards meant that when we needed a new fridge it wouldn't fit, so that space became a parking spot for the high chair.

The flooring (lino & masonite underlay) was a nightmare to remove & took us FOREVER!  If we ever see another floor staple we won't be responsible for our actions LOL.  The floor's not finished yet ... our poor floor man has fourteen jobs currently on the go so he just fits everyone in as needed, but it's going to look amazing.

We still have the plasterer & electrician to come in finish off their jobs (LOL will be so happy to have our fridge back where it belongs) but OMGoodness what a difference!  It looks so much lighter & brighter & we have tonnes more usable space.   

So after month or so of having furniture piled into the lounge room, no kitchen & using the laundry to cook our toast, I'm SOOOO ready to get creating again.  I think I've been having withdrawals LOL!

The secret is out ... some exciting news to share :)

I'm so ridiculously excited that Bec has asked me to be part of the new ScrapJacked team!  Keep an eye out for lots of changes, challenges and introductions to the new Design Team (we are a varied bunch with lots of different styles).

Each month, we will show you our creations & your objective is simply to get inspired.  More than anything, we just want you to have fun & we're hoping that we can help keep those creative juices flowing & use that stash that always seems to grow ... not sure how that happens *wink*.

Over the next couple of weeks, Bec will be introducing the Design Team as well as details about the great prizes for our very first challenge ... a big welcome to kick off the start of a new era.  Check it all out at ScrapJacked!  We'd love you to become a follower so that you don't miss out on any of our exciting news or challenges.
