Happy Birthday Deb

Today is my daughter's birthday and I am sending her all my love and hope you have a fun filled day.

Debbie sent me a photo of the cake she made for herself. She said that it was a little rough around the edges.............what do you think. This is her second attempt at this type of cake. I think she did an amazing job. Pity I don't live closer to her, I really would have loved a slice. Oh, did I mention that it was a white chocolate cake.

Cheers, Irene

A Mini Album for Ted

Can't believe that I am posting twice in one day. Gosh I'm good...hehehehehe
This is a little mini album I made earlier in the year during my first on-line class. It has sat in a draw just waiting for that special moment.

Our best friend turned 50 a couple of months ago. He and his gorgeous wife Kay were too busy with guests and food preparations to even think of taking any photos. So I quietly clicked away all afternoon and into the night. Thank goodness for digital cameras. I took a stack of photos, in fact, I didn't have enough pages in the mini album to accommodate them all, so I had to choose carefully.

It took a while before I completed the album then it was a while before Ted and Kay paid a visit. Finally I gave Ted the little album and he loved it. He had forgotten some of what went on and really enjoyed the photos.

If you would like to see a larger image, then just click on the photo but be warned !!!!! the files are huge. I forgot to reduce the size before uploading.

Cheers, Irene

Great Night Out

Our local amateur theater group, Yeppoon Little Theater, have been putting on plays over the past few years and their latest production Allo Allo was a sell out. Not having been before, we were not sure what to expect. We live in a small coastal community but if the show was anything to go by, we are oozing in talent. I have never laughed so much. The actors were brilliant, funny and multi skilled. At interval, they were the waiters who served the audience with a light French Supper while keeping in character.

Our local Postmaster Kerry played the main role of Rene. It was a huge part and he was definitely up to the job. When ever I go to post a letter or parcel, I will never see him in the same light again. Wish you could have been there too.

If you haven't seen Allo Allo HERE is the link which will explain it better.

Cheers, Irene

Am I the Only One Who is Messy?

I have been working on my eldest grand daughter's birthday present and yesterday in the middle of my "creativeness " I became aware of how messy I had gotten my work space. So of cause I had to take a photo of it all. There were bits of paper and glue everywhere. And I got to wondering if anyone out there gets into the same situation?

In this image I was working on the singles on the castle and I had hundreds of tiny bits of paper everywhere. As you can see I am running low on the glue and I find that storing in up side down is a great time saver........(mental note to self - buy more glue).

The singles were very time consuming. Each piece had to be cut to size, inked, curled and adhered, 39 pieces in total. I must admit that I am having a great time putting this album together for Isla. There will be a story line included but I haven't got that far yet LOL.

Yesterday's Breakfast

Normally I have a bowl of cereal with a few blueberries and yogurt and a cup of tea. But the previous day at Mah Jong the ladies were talking about breakfasts and most of them had eggs, bacon, sausages etc to keep them going until lunch. Normally I only have this kind of breakfast on a Sunday but I thought I would give it a try and this is what I had.........

They say that fresh is best and I am lucky enough to get eggs from happy hens. These hens live under 2 minutes away and it is quite common to get eggs that were laid that morning. So when I cracked an egg for breakfast, I was pleasantly surprised to find a double yolker.

Being a scrapper, my camera is never far away so I snapped this photo. Now I must say in my defense that I never cook with butter - usually its just a light spray of non-stick spray and NO, I didn't have any butter on my toast.

Do You Believe in Fairies?

This is a little mini album/story book that I made for my little granddaughter Mia for her 3rd Birthday. During one of my visits, I spent a couple of hours at a gorgeous little park with Isla and Mia and of cause my camera. The girls were having a lovely time exploring the little dry creek bed and playing around the vegetation and I got some lovely natural shots.

When I had the photos developed, I thought it would make a great mini album to document the fun time we had at the park. Then I realized that I could turn the whole thing into a cute story with Mia as the main character.

Now I am by no means a writer but each day I jotted down a few ideas......some were good...some not so good. And I finally came up with this story.

Thanks for looking,

Irene x
