November Overview

November was go go go with family events and catch-ups before the silly season really starts.

We celebrated my husband, Ferg's, birthday with my family on the Friday before. He was seemed very happy with his Adrian Zumbo layered birthday cake, which was the most amazing cake I have ever eaten.
On Saturday 3rd November I went to the Penrith Craft Show and got a bit of crafting done. I made beautiful cards with Jane Clark ( and managed to complete the whole project in class ... love it when that happens. Only have a picture of one of the cards as I have already sent the other one off!

I ran into Sandra whilst getting a coffee and she happened to be doing the next class with Nic Howard ( We created an amazing scrapbook layout and it was nice to have some company to chat and share with throughout ... as usual I didn't finish the project and they will probably be sitting around for a while until I get to finish it off (ha, ha). Perhaps I should make a New Year's resolution to do something crafty every weekend ... even if it's only an hour or so.  My layout should look similar to this when finished ....

Went away to the Hunter Valley for Ferg's birthday from 9th - 11th November ...

then hit the races for Spring Carnival on Saturday, 17th November with Janneka and Paul ...

... and battled the crowds and traffic from Tamarama to Bondi Beach, to view the Sculptures by the Sea on Sunday, 18th November.

Ferg and his mate Robert went on a trip to Perth for a week On 24th November had a craft day with my friend Jean and sister Natalie. I started my handmade Christmas cards ... probably a little late but probably won't take me too long.

Nothing quite like seeing the final episode of Twilight at the Australian Premiere on 14th November and keeping in with the shows, saw the stage show Legally Blond on 29th November.

I still managed to join in an ATC swap with the Boomerang Yahoo Group - theme Blue & Green & Ribbon.
Phew ... what a month!
