Richard and I drove to Bathurst yesterday, had breakfast at the Acropole and then he took me to Skin Fantasy to have these tattoos done.

The black heart is the existing one that I had on my left wrist and I had added to it the two roses, red because my father liked red roses, black because it not only symbolises death but absence.

I had Carpe Diem put onto the inside of my right wrist as to me seems like a fantastic way to live your life and is something that i need to be reminded of.

Newest pics of Phoenix

Thought I would share some pics of the lovely little Phoenix, took these yesterday so they are really current, she is just over 4 months old now and weighs 600grams, when she reaches 700 she will have a little op. She is so adorable and such a joy to have around. I am totally besotted with her and really love playing with her.
Cheers all xo

Wedding Card


I really don't make cards very often but a fellow team member is being married tomorrow on the beach at Foster, sigh. I have a lot of time and respect for Johno so I wanted to make a card that reflected their love of the ocean plus have a little bit of a wedding feel to it. This is what I came up with

The paper is metallic blue
in two shades,
I used surgical gauze
to imitate
the netting as well
as bird netting
and silver mesh ribbon.
A white feather and pearls
for a wedding feel
and shells to
continue the beach theme

For the inside I look for ages
to find just the right words,
I have heard the way he speaks of Carrie
with so much love
and wanted something that I believed
would mean something to them both and
this is what I found, i
t is a quote by Judy Garland from the book
Rapture - everyday moments of bliss.

Fun day

Well after the absolutely miserable day we had yesterday it was so nice to see the sun shining, still a cold wind but so much better.
Bec and Kat came over tonight and we all had pizza and played the Wii, I like bowling but suck at baseball and tennis, we all had a lot of fun.
Day off tomorrow yay, getting my nails done, few groceries and might try to get some scrapping done.

It snowed today, not for very long and didn't settle as it was too wet but still it was snow. I was at work and took some pics so here they are -
