As per my earlier post A very special Christmas by Holly Spring design is officially in store and it's on sale right off the bat so get in quick before you miss out!!!! LINK What are you waiting for stop reading this and go buy it!!! Tis the season to be scrapping.....

Seasons Greetings!

Hi Everyone!

I'm baaaaaack.... well mostly anyway lol. As you would have read in my last post I have unfortunatly been in a creative funk the last couple of months. That mixed with never ending computer issues has brought me to the conclusion that I no longer have the time to continue scrapping as much as I have been. So I unfortunatly had to leave all of my CT's :( Well all except Holly Springs fab CT because I just couldn't quite stop scrapping altogether hehe. Never fear though I have picked up my love of signature making and I'm currently hinting to hubby that I'm after a sewing machine for Xmas so I will be sure to keep you updated on all my exploits and of course I will still be scrapping from time to time with Hollys gorgeous kits as well as any I buy along my travels. I'm hoping to have a give away in the not to distant future so keep an eye out for that. Also if hubby does manage to pick up on my not too subtle hints about Xmas presents I'll be looking into making some gorgeous little dolls which I will give away every so often. So keep your eyes peeled for exciting new things. I won't be doing too much over the next months but expect plenty of new things to be happening on here in the new year!

Happy Holidays!

A very Special Christmas!

OMG! Look how long it's been since I posted! Wow where have the last couple of months gone?!?!? Turns out my ages old computer has once again been playing up and since my husband is still to cheap (love you babe!) to buy a new one I ended up leaving all of my CT's :( Although my computer did come right after a couple of weeks and much cursing lol. Still I found myself in a creative funk so decided not to return to my old CT's except of course for my fabulous friend Miss Holly Spring who has been as always very patient with me :) So here I am back again to show you all a beautiful new Kit from Holly Spring Designs called A very special Christmas. It will be available from after five designs on the 2nd of December. Here's a link to Holly's store - LINK

My lastest purchase!

OMG I've been so busy with my CT's that's I haven't actually brought a kit for AGES! So I was pleased to find enough money in my account to buy this gorgeous kit by Kimla Designs called love story. I just adore Kimlas work. She always creates such rich, textured kits. I especially love this one because it's so dark :) It hides all my flaws lol. Here's the LINK to Kimlas fab store :)
And a quick page from me using my fav pic of Hazel :) Will be making more tonight when I find some time!

Earthquake update

Well we stayed at my parents house last night since they have their water and power back. Unfortunatly most people our side of town including us are without water and we have no idea how long that will be for. Christchurch has officially declared a State of Emergency.
I'm just so thankful we managed to get a shower today and the kids got a bath :) I suddenly realised how much we take something as simple as running tap water for granted. We are back home now and we have a block of porta loo's set up down the street but there is a huge storm coming tonight with gale force winds so that should be fun :( We also have a tanker truck that comes every so often to distribute water but we have to boil it because there's been possible contamination from the sewerage lines. Good thing we still have power!
The original earthquake was 7.1 magnitude and we have been having a lot of aftershocks. The biggest hit us at about 5am this morning and was roughly about a 5. We are expected to keep having after shocks for the next 4 or 5 days. All school has been cancelled until at least Weds.
The city center is one of the worst areas hit and is completely cordoned off by police. Civil defence has acted quickly but I think we are all surprised that the army has yet to be dispatched. We had a curfew last night from 7pm untill 7am and several people were arrested for breaking it. There's just too many idiots trying to get into the city for a look.
Anyway that's about it from me. We took a few pics on our way to my parents place last night but they are not the best quality as it was dark and we were in a rush.

New Earthquake pics

Just sent hubby out on a water finding mission and he came back with some pics of our neighbourhood.


OMG I'm totally freaked! We were hit by a 7.4 magnitude earthquake last night at around 4am. I've never felt one anywhere near that big before. We were lucky because we are right on the beach so we were cushioned by all the sand. In fact we are one of the few in Christchurch to still have power although our water is gone :( Aparently roads all around the city have been blocked off by police and buildings have collapsed. My parents showed up at 7am saying there was only one road they could take to get to us because they all had giant cracks in them! We are not sure how long our power may hold out and apparently they are talking about evacuating people in our area due to sewerage problems so if you don't hear from me for a little while it's because of that. I'm sure everything will be fine though :)

Here's a couple of pics I found online of damage
