Reading: The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas

Yep. So much for my post a week thing I was trying to achieve...

The new layouts have been posted over on the AussieScrapJack blog! Run, don't walk over there to see them. Some amazing inspiration! :) Here is my layout:


OOPS! Off to be published!!! :) :)


Yep. It's about my cat eating my bird. I don't think I'll ever truly forgive him for that.

And I am in the middle (and by middle, I mean I have just started) of making this scarf:





Just so you know. That's not me. My hair is not that pretty. However, I am pretty sure my scarf will be though because it is such a nice pattern! Here's a link through to the original site.

I even thought since I have been gone for so long, that I would include a book report.


I must admit, I wasn't aware that this book was a young adults book. That being said, I think the book was great. Say 4 out of 5. It is well written. It leaves finer details out, because lets face it, we all know what went down, we don't really need specifics. I was slightly disappointed my daughter didn't want to read this book. I guess there weren't enough dragons or elves in it to hold her interest. Not to worry. It's a quick and easy read since it is only 216 pages long.

Well, that's it from me tonight. I need some beauty sleep. :)

Scrapbooking: Resolutions

Resolutions. We all think about them. Most of us make some. How many of us stick to them, though? I have to this year. Only because I made a layout about them. This time next year, I want to put my hand on my heart and say I fulfilled what I set out to achieve. Let's see how I go.


We spent New Years Eve with family and friends. An excellent night full of chatter and laughter (mainly at Amy's expense when she dances!) and too much food. But it was an awesome night. Sparkler fun was, of course, had.


So, from my house to yours: HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
