Max's Blog candy

Max is celebrating her 2000th visitor to her blog with blog candy. You can see it here.

More photos from our visit to the Botanic Gardens. This is the peace bell - it is beautiful, and makes the most amazing sound.

Beautiful Sunday

Today was a beautiful day in the Garden City. We went for a stroll through the Gardens - this giant eucalyptus caught our eye, it was huge. The weather today was very unseasonal - sunny and warm, a far cry from the snow last Sunday.

Last weekend's snow.

Lost in Blog-land

I can't believe it has been a month since I last posted! Arrgh - such a bad blogger. I won't beat myself up about it as the reasons are I had been 'spreading myself too thin' and something had to give. I have found parenting a challenge over the last few weeks - exam time for the oldest and it has been a bit stressful for all! Plus work is very busy - and I need to work to keep us fed etc :-)

I have done a bit of crafting but not as much as I would like. I haven't been spending much time at the Craft Beutiful forum either and I really miss them......
This month is my youngest's birthday so I am in the middle of making some party invitations - a bunch of 11 year olds going paint-balling! Sometimes I wish I had a daughter to do something girly with (sigh) but not often as they are both treasures!
Ayway if there is still anyone out there in blogland who is interested ( and I don't know why you would be!)here is what I have created lately

This is a birthday card I made for a friend. The tag is her 'gift' - I'm shouting her to the movies (Sex and the City) as well as a meal somewhere. Only problem is we have been too busy to find time to do it. Planning on going this week
