Harry turns 5

Ferg was in Seattle for work in February this year, but I still went to Queensland to celebrate Harry's 5th birthday.

He got a new drum set from us & his parents and held his party with friends at the bowling alley.

New beginnings

IBack to work at Arctic Blue Marketing on 13th January for one last week then off to my new job at JPS Marketing with a trip to New Zealand on 21st January.

Scenes from Auckland below.


Queensland for Christmas

Ferg's mum Sheelah came down under for the summer. We spent a lovely Christmas with nearly all the family (our brother David didn't come up this year) and both dogs Beau & Dakoda.

Then back to Sydney in time to watch the famous New Years Eve fireworks.

Family Milestones

Our beautiful niece Alexis turned 7 on 26th August 2013 ... hard to believe how grow up she is now.

A week later, our darling brother turned 30 on 1st September. Sylvia, Harry & Alexis came from Queensland to celebrate.

And as it's been a while since all us kids were together, we also got some professional photos done.

Caricature Fun

I have a new app on my phone and created caricatures of me & my sister ... fun!

Christmas Cards 2013

This is now our fourth Christmas back in Sydney. I have managed to make this year's Christmas Cards from my never ending stash of scrapbook papers and haven't bought anything new in that time. I think I'll still be able to make next year's as well.

A weekend at the Hunter

Celebrating Ferg's 40th birthday quietly, with a weekend trip to the Hunter on 9-10th November. staying at our favourite place Bimbadeen Estate.

Creative fun

Jean and I did a class with Lisa Oxley at the Spring Papercrafts Festival at Penrith on 3rd November.

It was messy inky fun and I was able to finish one layout ... loved it.

Art Journal Calendar - August 2013

From August until the end of the year is the busiest period in my work industry. Even though I had good intentions of doing one artistic thing a month, this ended up being the last thing I did until I went to a craft show or made my Christmas cards.

The focus of this layout is olives ... and what goes perfectly with olives ... wine!

Art Journal Calendar - July 2013

Following my trip overseas last year things got pretty busy in my life. Here is my art journal calendar page for July.

The colour scheme and theme relates to the highlight of this month being in The Netherlands visiting family and friends.
