Exciting News to Share!

I am thrilled to be able to say that I have been accepted by Courtney to be a part of the CHATTERBOX International Design Team – WOOOOHOOOO!

Actually, that sounded very formal didn’t it? I would like to say that I read the email and then casually remarked to my family, “Oh Darlings, isn’t it lovely? I shall be representing Chatterbox” and then sipped my Martini.

Alas, nothing so refined or stylish. More like running around the house doing baby circles with my arms and shouting “WOOT!WOOT!” and scaring the cat. And THEN realising I had no bra on. And THEN slipping on some green cordial on the floor. Wow, I am all class.

I am really looking forward to working for Chatterbox – I have said it before and I’ll say it again, their products have always been a favourite of mine due to being so versatile and perfectly coordinated. And the new Arti.licious range is just DIVINE. Bring on the first project, I say! lol

We all had a great day, yesterday actually. It was my son James’ special 5th Birthday – Happy Birthday my little man! Heaven knows what we’ve been through in the past 5 years but you have made up for all the times of hardship by being a sunny, bright, always smiling, always laughing little bundle of joy. Here’s to another 5!


I also got another special phone call this morning from Cassie over at Scrapbooking Memories – I have made it into the Masters Top 50! Another WOOHOO! I am sooo blessed today. So now I have to sit back and wait until we all find out who the Masters are. Twiddling my toes and biting my fingernails off, you bet! lol

Back to the scrapbooking side of things though – what have I been doing this week other than making a complete fool of myself? I HAVE actually been doing something productive. I caught up on housework that had been left all last week while the kids were sick. I caught up on emails. I caught up on some classes. I even clipped the dog and bathed the cat! lol – That’s what happens to me when Spring finally hits. I get in a fit of spring cleaning and nothing is safe. The kids get chucked outside and I go through the house like a mini tornado sweeping, vacuuming and dusing everything in my path. I also clean out the old clothes from the closets – something that gives my DH no end of anxiety (“But WHY do we need to throw out my Scout tee shirt from 1976?”). By the end of it all my family is begging for mercy, the dog won’t speak to me and my DH can be found weeping into the rubbish bin, pulling out old undies and wailing “See! This is still fine – we could use it to wax the car or something!” in pure desperation.

So now I am off to finish cleaning the house and I may even get to scrap this afternoon – yay! I am also putting together abother tutorial on Sun Printing and other tips and techniques this week – so keep coming back to check out my Blog when you have a minute spare.

Take care everyone,

Sares xx
