This past week has been just a bit of a blur really, I wrote a list last weekend and every day had things to do on it.
Monday I made some phone calls and dyed my hair,
Tuesday my bestest friend Mappy came over and we discussed wedding stuff, she is making a bit of a speech before the ceremony, before we arrive. Wednesday I went house work mad, dusted, vaccuumed cleaned, tidied became very domesticated, so not like me !!
Thursday I had to go to the school for a P&F meeting, which involved the president suprising everyone with his resignation, leaving me as sec and a vice pres as the only executive officers left. I am thinking that this might see the end of P&F. Then I did the school banking because I was rostered on.
Friday, tegan had a hair cut, we came home and I made a comb to wear in my hair then Ryan came home from school and we went to the Golf Club to set up for the reception. Mum and Trisha(my sister) and Jessica(my niece) came to help as well as Mappy, we set tables, blew up balloons and Ryan was great at putting the balloons up high. the room looks fantastic, i am really happy with how it turned out. Nev went to Smithton after work to pick up his kids for the weekend. so now we are just sitting, I feel like I should be in bed :) I am so tired.
I guess thats it for now I will post more and some pictures after the wedding :)

Isn't this CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I also have made these bombonieres. These little packs of lollies I got at the discount store for 40 for $2.00. Then I made the covers and covered each and every one, each guest will have on in their place setting I made 60 of them so I guess they cost about $4.00 all up.
I also made the guest book, I got one of those cardboard scrapbooking books and covered each page with weddingish paper. All in all , that side of things is going remarkedly well.
As for the "other" side , well we had a bit of a dispute with Nevs mum this week which has left us both feeling really bad, She was just trying to have control I guess and said if we didnt invie blah blah, well she wouldnt come. initially I was of the opinion, oh well sorry you wont be there but then stopped , she IS Nevs mum and he would hate it if she wasnt there so, we gave in. Its just that we hate the fact that basically she blackmailed us. grrr. Doubt Nev will ever forget this tho............

Today Girl Angel and I had the best of luck we went shopping to change the shirt we had bought nev for the wedding, I got one that was too big. Well we had a bit of time so we went to Payless shoes and there they were.......... nice black sandles IN MY SIZE!!!!! needless to say I bought them, we then went to Kmart, and looked for a dress for Girl Angel, and look we did, but can you believe this I said ok theres nothing here turned a corner and there it was,,,, the perfect dress for her, we went and she tried it on and IT FIT,,,, it was just OUR day for wedding shopping.
Speaking of clothes for the wedding , I made a start on my top, and OMG I hate it, it makes me look as big as 3 barns, I wont wear it, Ill have to come up with something else, its a waste of approx $35 for fabric , but I dont care, I hate it!!!!!!!!
School hols here. been pretty laid back, nev has had this week off work and we have had his son for the week. Boy Angel has spent a few extra days up on the farm so hes been happy and girl angel spent a few days with a friend of hers at my mums.
Thats about it for now, sooo bye for now.. Cxx

Look what that naughty girl, kathleen send Nev and I, isn't she just so wonderful. In case you can see what it is, its a gold photo frame and is just gorgeous. so Thank you again Kathleen. :)
This is a needle felted pin cushion that I made last week. I am pretty addicted to needle felting, thanks to Niss fo sending me the gear to do it.
This pin cushion is made on cream felted jumper, then the flower is also a different colour felted jumper, and the centre is the same as the cream base. it looks so cool, I really like it although I will probably send it to someone on swap bot.
Does this tail make my bum look big?
This one is also from the AFA site and is called Recycle It Again, the rule was you had to make the ATCs using old calendar, greeting cards etc.
Well thats about it for now, apart from the fact that I have been so sick this last week with the flu, its been really horrible but nev has been doing heaps of stuff around the house for me. Oh he's a good'un.
Til Next time C x

Seems like a couple of days since I was here but actually its more like 2 weeks, So I will try an make the effort to post Each Wednesday, hahaha ok I did say try.
This card is done for a character swap, the deal was the card had to have a character, 1 bow, 2 flowers, 3 colours not inc skin and 4 embellishments, I had fun with this one.
Last Friday N and I went to Launnie again, we took the old motor out of the cruiser to the place where he bought the new motor, went
to our fav fish and chip shop in Kings Meadows and of course to Bunnings :)
These cards are 4 of the 8 I did for a "Not another Disney" swap at ATCS for All.
I really love the way the door knob from Alice In Wonderland turned out.
On Sunday Boy Angel went to a farm near Wynyard to do some work experience, he had a great time but was totally exhausted when we went to pick him up, went to bed at 8pm and I
had to wake him at 7 the next morning.
Girl Angel spent most of Sunday asleep in bed with a tummy virus thingie.
These are my "I can Sing A Rainbow" inchies. Cute huh?
These cards are the last in the series of Alphabet swaps, U is for Umbrella, V is for Vegimite, W is for Whale, X is for X-Ray, Y is for Yard and Z is for Zebra.
I cant wait to get all mine back for this swap, I have had great fun trying to work out what to do for each letter.
Well I think thats all from me, and I will (I hope) be back next Wednesday. I will be the Wednesday Blogger :)

Did some washing and general housework. DOH asked if we wanted to go somewhere so we ended up driving to the next city and buying hungry Jacks for lunch :), I also managed to incorporate a buying trip for craft items into the day.
Came home and I spent some time sorting out swaps, I have enveloped all the ones I have completed ready for posting as soon as I get my partners address. God i'm organised arent I? lol

www.swap-bot.com is a fun swap site where you can join groups for group swaps or one on one swaps.
www.atcsforall.com is another great swap where people host swaps and all players send to them and then they return all the cards out to all players. I have sent in about 7 of these swaps but as yet havent received any.
Whoops for those that don't know and most of my friends and family wouldnt know ,,, ATC's are Artist Trading Cards,, these cards uniformly measure 3 1/2 inches by 2 1/2 inches and are traded OR given, they are not supposed to be sold. A better explanation can be found at http://cedarseed.com/air/atc.html
