Now I am another year older - am I wiser???

Perhaps not but hopefully less stressed in the future lol!

Life is still busy which is one reason why I have resigned at the shop - don't stress people I am still teaching - I just need to have more hours at home to have things in better order - also the business is going full steam ahead - BHP want us to do a heap of work up north and omg at their paperwork and courses we have to have in place prior!! I have one month left....I am really sad to not be part of it in that sense anymore but family and life come first - hopefully it means I will have more time to create instead of chasing my tail..... The Customers are wonderful people and I do love helping people create their memories - you never know one day I may be back!! But at the moment family is more important!! Hope you all understand!

Also on the scrapping front - Scrapbook Creations have picked up a heap of LO's of mine and want to do a Who's Who of Scrapping on me!! OMG!!! Seems a bit surreal!! There are a few double page ads for TBZ coming up as well and only a few weeks till I fly to Sydney to teach the wonderful ladies at 3Angels Scrapping - Can't wait!!!! Masters is on again - yes I am a sucker for punishment but what do I have to lose - nothing and every year I have created pieces I love.....

EB has gone so quiet - I really don't think it will ever be any where near what it was a year ago....Most of the regulars have slowly retreated and if you are all hiding somewhere LET ME KNOW!!!!! I MISS YOU LOT!!

Bali - lol - still heaps to tell!! Safari park is the next part of our holiday and to me the highlight of Bali - I mean how often do you get the chance to cuddle an orangutan or pat a (very dopey) lion or a young frishy tiger or Chionia's favourite - ride an elephant!! Just awesome experiences you can't miss....If you go to Bali grab the Leopard package from your travel agent or the hotel as this is the best way to complete the park....

Yesterday I turned closer to 40 than that is scary - not is the sense of getting older - just I have never thought about being old!! Weird day all round - ran late for school with the girls, someone not looking just about ran me off the road (same coming home from work with someone running a red light - remember people - COUNT TO 10 after the light turns green before taking off!) but the night ended wonderfully - even with a birthday choc mud cake which I didn't have to organise - a few more pandora's for my 2nd bracelet which we will get in the next week or so - a dressing gown, perfume atomiser, Red Door collection of perfumes and creams and a MIX MASTER - YAY I don't have to hold my beaters anymore - any one want a hand held beater!!! ( Trust mum to remember me doing this at the preps for Chionia's birthday!!! Mwah Mum!!)

My texture paste is dry now and I have a project to work on...;) Will be back with another Bali update soon.

Toodles everyone!! :)

Happy birthday gorgeous!

You do sound very busy with life, I am glad to hear that you will still be teaching at Di's :) Your photos are amazing, but I have already told you that before :)
Good on you for going for Master again, I was going too, even bought papers and a few other bits of pieces but everytime I sit myselff down, I just can't do it. It has been getting me really down, I think the whole scrapping thing is just not working for me at the moment, really struggling to create a basic LO that I like :( So be be kinder on myself I think I am going to give the Masters the flick!
As for EB, I think it has gone past the revival/selvage stage..:( I can't believe it has come to this. I miss everyone soooo much. For me I am kinda seeing our Adelaide trip as a bit of a last hurrah! I have signed up on TheBoxx, but I am not even logging in their much.

Well, hopefully I will catch you on MSN soon and have a chat :)

Yes I too wondered if everyone had disappeared to another site. I have just posted a suggestion in the Show off thread on EB that maybe we could organise a BLOG HOP?? I am very much a serial lurker and miss everyones work. Lucky I have some of my favourite blogs linked to mine so I can keep up with my fav's! Your Bali Photos look great MEL. Maybe you will join the blog hop?? Happy belated Birthday too!
