ps...went blog-hopping this morning ( something I'm not in the habit of doing! )on a seemingly random route & got a lovely surprise to find myself here seeing a card made with one of my Bear stamp designs!!!How cool!!
Hiyah!I did this digi lo ( lucky I have my pp's on file LOL! ) for the One Little Word challenge ...balance...hmmmmm....getting there! If there were a few extra hours each day I might find it a bit easier to achieve!!I've been pretty busy doing design ideas for stamps and pps ...trying to figure out where to go with it all....to keep submitting or to take the plunge & try to do it all myself...I get a lot of encouragement from friends that I can do it...just need to believe it myself, I guess.Part of me really wants to do it ( start my own line of products ) but it's a big thing.....I need a mentor ...or a manager!! Anyway...I'll keep designing either way...I just love it sooooooo much!!! On a different ( still fun )note , Gav & I went to Sydney for the weekend to see the Countdown Spectacular which was HEAPS of fun!! We don't get out much so when we do it's a nice change.Mind you I'm always keen to get back home!! Anyway...I'll go ...forgot to plug into the power so my Mac is going flat!!! I know there was something else I was going to mention but I can't think what it was...oh well, when I remember I'll pop back on & post it!!Thanks for popping in! Bye for now xx Mel
Hiyah! Another quickie! This is a digi lo I did for the Aussie Dares "Fantasy" challenge. I had an absolute ball doing this one ( again with Erin's faeries! Love them!! ) quite different to my usual stuff!What do you think? xx Mel ps: still pinching myself about the Masters thing!!! lol
Just a quick one....guess what??????? I received a phone call today to say I've been shortlisted in the Masters comp !!!!!!!!!!!OMG!!!!!!!!!!I'm still pinching myself!!!!!!!!!! I'm in the top 100 !!!!!!!!!!!WOOOOOOHHHOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! You know what?....even if I don't make it to the final selection ,getting this far in the comp is exciting enough!!!!!!! I'm stoked!!!! can you tell??? LOL !!! later...dinner's ready!! xx Mel
How pretty is this little faerie???!!! This is the one I mentioned in the last post....so beautiful isn't she??!! (pardon the dodgy photoshop effort!!!) I'm rushing to get this on to show you all some more of my extremely talented little sister's creations!! I'm in awe of the things she makes!!!They're just exquisite!! I'll eventually set up an album on here full of her faerie creations for you all to see! Another quick update...I found the link for the "you are beautiful " thingy I mentioned .Just click here! The sticker download is pretty plain so I've designed some others though I have no clue as to how to set it up as a download for you!! I've saved it as a PDF so if anyone's interested email me (email@example.com) & I can email you a copy!Otherwise use the free dl or make up some of your own!!Lets give it a go & see if we can make a difference to someone's day! Anyway...things to do ( DH thinks I spend all day on my butt so I'd better not prove him right!!! LOL !!...Can you imagine the state the house would be in if I really did sit on my butt all day????) Catch ya later xx Mel ( thanks for popping in !! )
FINALLY back on broadband speed!!! Thank Goodness!!! Now I can show you my new best friend.... I absolutely LOOOOOVE it!!! So worth the wait!!! I've been very creative with it & have designed about 30 scrapbook pps already!! About the same number of stamps,too!!!! I've managed to tear myself away from it a few times to do some hands on stuff... These were done at the Shop & Crop at SP& T last week....rediscovered my love for texture paste!!!I had fun with the little canvases! Each one is about 12x12cm!I also did a mini lo of one of my sisters beautiful faeries... ...isn't he just beautiful??? She made me one for my birthday which I'll post soon,too!! I was very excited to get myself a copy of Scrapbook Creations issue 45...one of my los is featured in the Gallery!!! It was weird seeing me in there, too , in one of Lusi's los!! It's inspired me to submit some more los ( been slack lately!! ). Everything else is going fine here....all hale & hearty!!Actually I'm starving...past lunch time ....need some food!!!! Just a quick thing before I go...I was looking at Jess & Sian's blogs & was inspired & reminded about paying it forward & also of something I'd seen a while back where people could download free stickers saying "You Are Beautiful" & asked to stick them anywhere they thought people would be inspired by them..some people had even painted big murals of the words!...I can't remember where I found the link but I'll do a bit of searching & if I can find it again I'll post it here...I just thought it was a wonderful idea...to help people feel beautiful even if just for a minute....it's gotta help, hey? "Every drop counts"!(I love the new Mount Franklin mineral water ads, too!!have you seen them ??) Ok...I'm waffling now coz I'm hungry!! I'll let you get back to your day!thanks for popping in! Leave me a message if you like! Enjoy your weekend xx Mel
We've been slowed down to dial up speed for over a week ....too much "You Tubing" methinks!!! ( Not me, of course!!!! I do more sensible things like cruising through blogs & catching up with friends!!! lol ) Anyway....good news....MY MACBOOK PRO HAS ARRIVED AT LAST!!!!! I LOVE it!!!! Will provide photos & sneak peeks of some creations soon....when things are moving a little faster!! Might be time to try a new internet provider...anyone got any suggestions or advice on which company is good as far as pricing, reliability etc go??Any advice would be greatly appreciated! A big HI to Brigitte...back from OS full of inspiration!! And big "Stay well , Beautiful " to Lusi!!! I'm off.....it's a pupil free day so I'd better check what the "pupils "are up to!!!( If you say pupils a few times it sounds really weird!! lol ) Catch ya soon xx Mel
