Doesn’t Time Fly?

…when you’re having fun?

I have been “batching it” as a single parent this month and I have to say – there seems to be less hours in the day, for some reason. I mean, seriously – did someone take away an hour or three? That’s the only explanation I have for getting to the end of the day and having no time left to scrap! Or sleep, for that matter, lol.

It’s been a hectic month, as you would imagine, with 4 kids, the dog, the cat, the fish (now sadly deceased) (thank god – one less mouth to feed), the garden, the housework, the school work and the newest batch of snails and hunstman spiders my front garden seems to love to procreate. Eek. Going out the front door feels like running the gammut of the Haunted House at the local circus.

I just sprayed the whole front of the house with “get-rid-of-spiders” type stuff and now I am sorry! Their little bodies are all curled up on my front porch as a testament to my genocide. Eek! It was too much for me, I’m afraid. I went around the back and out the side gate to get the post. I WILL have to go out there at some stage and get rid of them. Or maybe, if I wait long enough, we will have a stiff breeze and it will blow them all across the road. Here’s hoping! lol.

So, scrap wise – there are a few things on the agenda.

Firstly – class this week. We are doing an “All white” project of mine.

It seemed like a good idea, at the time, to have an “all white” page but I didn’t count on the fact that I am a MESS and I attract dirt and other unmentionables to me like a magnet. Keeping the page clean for class has been a nightmare! Anyway, enjoy :)

Next thing to show you is my start to the Halloween decorations for the year. The kids are right into it this year – and why not? A bit of fun never hurt, I say.

I call this, “The Bellfry”:

I can finally show you this page:

“Into the Wild” was created as one of my last Masters projects for the year using Karen Foster’s Zoo papers and embies. I liked this one. The papers are kinda cutesy but they work with the calico in the background.

This is a LO with a vintage feel to it that I created for one of our Sat classes. I LOVE the combination of brown, cream and gold. The photo is actually digitally manipulated to look like a drawing and then printed onto canvas:

So, now I am off to publish something on both the Upsy Daisy Blog and my Photography blog. I have been a busy gal this month, with weddings and family shoots non stop most weekends. It’s a stressful but wonderful time to share with people. If you get the time, pop over to my Photography Blog and take a peek.

That’s all from me for now – thanks for stopping by!

  1. Well good to see you are back. I have been checking in and tonight something to see. Yep, I have 4 kids and just moved house and work etc etc. When does it all stop?? Laughed about your spiders. I just did the same thing yesterday and today I have had to sweep a few away. I am petrified of them but if they are curled up to nothing, I can turn away and sweep them into yonder.
    Love your work. Have always wanted to do an all white. Might have to try it soon.

  2. No update for months, hope you are well.
    Hope you and your family have a Christams filled with joy and peace. Happy Christmas
    Linda
