Photo Post

Okay so i haven't really scraped yet...... I have started slowly but surely, but now I'm left with a few unfinished layout, that will just join the other pile of unfinished layouts. You know, the ones that are missing "something" or need something specific that you need to buy or that looked great in your minds eye when you planned it, but not so great on paper. Please tell me I'm not the only one that have so many uncompleted layouts that i could easily fill an album!
So in my attempt to be a better blogger I'm posting some photographs that I have taken lately.

I Love dandelions and i have always hoped to one of those big ones you see in Photos. I must admit I was so tempted to blow it and make a wish, but I just couldn't!

And lastly A rainy Sunday afternoon spent playing Paintball of all thing! The Photo was taken at Greystone Camp, 13km outside of Estcourt, Kwazulu-Natal. Over looking the Wagon Drift Dam.
Thank you for stopping by!

Bad Blogger

I have been such a bad blogger I know….
But sometimes life just gets crazy and you get busy and over whelmed. I have just felt drained lately, in all aspects of my live and especially creatively.
And I have felt so guilty for not bloggin, because I just knew this was going to happen, but how do you bog if you haven’t done anything creative lately? If you haven’t even been inspired to try, well that’s not entirely true. I would read blog post and browse on pintrest and see all these wonderful creations and feel inspired until I got to my craft desk, I just couldn’t going. Sad since playing with all my lovely supplies is what really relaxes me.
The very generous blog candy I won from Paola really did the trick, I couldn’t wait to unpack and start to play! PS I’m now hooked on Stickles and seriously contemplating getting more copics : ). So that is just what I did, sat at my desk and just started to play around, not creating layouts or anything, just playing, trying new techniques .

I do intent to start blogging again and KEEPING IT UP, this time round. I even gave my little blog a make over to inspire me. A big Thank you to all my followers for not abandoning me!

Have a great day!

Happy Mail

I just love receiving mail, this started at a very young age. My grandmother you to send as cards and letters all the time. Whether its surprise mail, something I know is coming or even bills at the end of the month, i dont mind just as long as im getting mail!
So on Saturday I was super excited to collect 2 packages from the post office

I ordered stamps from Cariena at the scrapbook studio here and Shamela from Kanje Kraft’s here

I just love these lost and found stamps from my minds eye and I really battled to find the last two sets, luckily cariena was at my rescue.
Do your self a favor and check out the beautiful stamps that Shamela is selling.
I got great service from both these ladies.
I do most of my scrapbook shopping online as we don’t even have a craft store where I live let alone a scrapbook store. The closest one is 70 kilometers away from here.

I also found these pins and thread at the local material shop for unbelievable prices. The pins where R9.50 and the thread R8 for all of them. I’m not sure how I will use it yet, but I will find a way lol.

I also found these wire baskets to organize some of my stash.

Yeah for me i finally figured out how to do a nice and proper link! Next up a nice signature. Slowly but surely I'm getting the hang of blogging... one of these days i might actually think of myself as a true blogger!

Happy Valentines day, hope you all where spoiled rotten. '
