And secondly ......

Happy Birthday to Me!!!

(for yesterday) I was a very spoilt girl! For anyone that knows me you would know that I just loovvee my bracelet! It also makes it wasy for the boys to know what to get me without having to ask .... or sending me to get my own present! lol

They surprised me with these four new beads .... a little teddy, a seashell, a crab (cause I am a cancer .... look at his cute little face!) and an I Love You bead! I love you both too!

And if they weren't enough my lovely girlfriends, Corinne and Lisa, got me this gorgeous genuine Pandora bead. It's silver and 14ct gold on the starfish! I love it sooooo much and am not sure what I have done to deserve such a generous gift. I am so chuffed and grateful! I love you girls!! Mwaah!! xxxx

Derek took this snap of me and Cody just before we went to dinner last night. This was right before the "chucking" incident that almost put a premature end to our night! Yes, you heard right ... my darling little boy decided to throw up on himself 4 times as we were heading into the club! A quick trip to K-mart for a set of new clothes saved the day and we were able to continue on with our dinner plans!

He was clearly okay ..... he ran around like a mad man while I went to the shops and then pigged down about 3 platfuls of food from the buffet! That's kids for ya! hehehe

Open for business!!

If you have been wondering of my whereabouts of late ..... well here's the answer ..... I have been hard at work getting ready for the grand opening of my online store, sorting and packaging all the lovely products, photographing them and loading them to the store.

It's called D-lish Scraps and I have moved all of my handmade products there and as well have added about 60 new lines to tempt you! I am specialising in low cost and affordable embellishments for scrapbooking and craft. Lets face it .... there are plenty of places that do papers and cardstock well .... and quite frankly I don't have the room! lol :-D

There are lots of flowers, leaves, ribbons, laces and trims as well as paper doilies, metal embellishments and mesh. I will be continuing to add to the inventory so be sure to sign up for a newsletter while you are there.

As a special offer for our opening month of July only, everyone** who registers as a customer will receive a sample pack of our products for free!

You will also find instore my new range of handmade flowers ..... Floral Felties! They come in six different colour combo packs and are all handstitched with pearl centres. Here is a sneak peak of the Turquoise/Sea Green pack:

Postage is a flat rate and cheap fee of only $3 to anywhere in Australia ..... making it affordable too. Almost everything in store is less than a couple of dollars a pack ..... so cheap, cheap, cheap!!

**to be eligible you must register your details as a customer with D-lish Scraps, no purchase necessary, limited to first 50 customers or 31st July, whichever comes first.
