Well Collections chipboard tiles seem to be popping up everywhere of late, I know I'm obsessed with them. They were the perfect gift to give a Christmas.
These were some more I made for teachers and friends

I did a class on them just recently and the canvases the girls finished up with were amazing.
This one was done by Amie, it would be easy 48" long,,,,,Of course Amie had to do extra tiles for homework so she could create her masterpiece on the last day.

A quick Birthday Card for Mum, thank goodness for the Cuttlebug. ;-)

Back Soon with some more news,
until then, Take Care

Now I could be risking my life with this Post.

But what a blast we had. I hadn't laughed as much in ages, no wait!!!,,,, that rendition of Beyonce's 'All the Single Ladies' Max, Mel and I did last week, including dance moves, could of earned someone some decent blackmail money. Thank goodness, there is no photographic evidence.
Some retail therapy was in order last Thursday. The best sort of retail therapy must be the one you don't actually hand over your cash or card and I don't think I've been more excited about shopping in a long time LOL.
I can't believe I admitting this??? We went bulk rubbish pile shopping,,,, You should of seen the treasures we found. It's amazing what people throw out. We really only wanted some wire, a door knob or two and maybe a little chicken wire. But there was just to much to leave behind.

See I knew we'd find some chicken wire.

Mel returning with some treasure.

Pretty as a picture.

Curtain rings and ends were popular.

We were a bit saddened with this find.

Some finds were just to hard to resist, a jarrah ladder for instance.

It's amazing what you can get into a little hatch back.

The weirdest things get thrown out.

A Local workman offered us the use of his truck. Although it was a little late in the day, we could of done with it earlier,,,,, LOL

One of those 'hold the camera high in the air shots', obviously didn't work :0)

I really need to learn how to put lots of photos on a grid type image, IYKWIM,,, Rrriiiikkkkkkkkkkkk!!!!!!!!!!
Have a great week.

God Bless

Is an online group I am a member of, there is some amazing creative girls on there. I joined a swap recently and the theme was 'Collections 1 for 1'. A perfect one for me as I have a little obsession with all of the products. The idea was you make for only 1 person. This is what I received from Greta.
It's a magnetic clip board and is proudly displayed on my fridge. Don't know if I can bring myself to use it yet though.

Thanks Greta!!!

Vanessa was the host of the swap and also who I got her to make for.

Love Helmar 2 step Crackle, but I'm sure I've told you that before.

Thanks girls for a great swap, Loved it.

Long time no post!!

We got 'Shaped', computer jargon for my boys downloading over our quota of downloads with our internet plan. So very frustrating!!!!! For 2 weeks we had a very slow internet. I tried up loading, but it was taking forever and I eventually gave up.
So I have a tonne of creativity to share.

My heart goes out to all of you touched by the bush fires on the east side of Australia. Take Care and I wish you luck rebuilding your lives.
There are amazing photo's out there, some I was absolutely amazed by, some just brought me to tears. I happen to find this one,,,

Imagine all those precious possessions lost, the photographs, the memories, it's almost to much to think about. My heart goes out to you.
This tragedy has definitely brought out the best in Australians, if you are in a position to donate you can do it through the Red Cross HERE
