Now how do you do this blogging thing???

It's been so long since I did a post, I have almost forgotten! It is so easy to get out of the routine and then struggle to get back into it again.
I've been working on pages for my journal...a lot of ladies that have done the class have gone on to make multiple journals and I'm still plodding along doing my pages, whenever I get a few spare minutes. I am really enjoying using some of the scraps that I have had around for awhile. This is one of my favourite pages - it includes an illustration from an Alice in Wonderland book and a cloth tag from Rivers. I've discovered that Rivers have great tags - metal, plastic, cloth = all wonderful for this kind of thing.....a good reason to go shopping?!
During my blog sabbatical, I have become a year older - see, that's why you should regularly blog!!! I received this lovely parcel from Melissa - it was so nice to receive some handmade goodies and especially ones that look this good. I've worn my owlie brooch several times.

Oh it's so good to hear from you!!!! AND a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY (belated) to you!!!!

Well I'm way more then impressed and quite green with envy with your journal pages. One of these days I might get over my double phobia of keeping a journal, and one created from paper!!! :)

Has the weather started to cool down???? It is pooring rain again. This is now the 4th time in 30 days!!! This is our dry season we don't get a drop of rain until July 1st!! If this keeps up the tomatoes and peppers will be rotting in the ground! :( And that would be a very very bad thing. Plus all the rain is driving the humidity up. did I tell you this is our dry season?? :)

Take care and don't stay away so long this time I missed hearing about the family escapades!!
