Well its finally happened...

  Yep that's right....I cleaned up my scrap room!!!
I never knew I had so much stuff, you know how it happens...come on I know you agree with me ... that "Special" piece of paper or embellie you have to keep for a layout, card or OTP that requires that "Special" item you have kept for god knows how long ....well I found I must have a million of those just particular items.
So after culling (god I sound like a farmer) a whole lot of special pieces I now feel like I can start again! that not how it works?
Anyway I had a good cleanout changed the room round, went to Briscoes sale yesterday, bought overkill on plastic containers and now have the room as I want it......However Trev said (now its in writing so it must be true...) that I can have the much longed for Butchers Block with cubbies, and racks etc etc and a top for scrapping but it will have to be on wheels as I don't like scrapping in my room... I like the lounge , the kitchen, the ....well any room with other mortals that I can annoy with my constant chatting, humming, singing etc etc
Apparently I am the only person in the universe with over 500 punches.....(a slight exaggeration I think) and then the question comes "what the heck do you do with them all....they are all the same! then he says I'm going to ask the Ladies next year at SENZ how many punches do they all have and what do they use them Ladies get counting!
and the ones you have as extras incase the first one breaks is only counted as 1 (lol)

so here is the before and after pics of the room...more carpet space now

Old Room....

Bit messy aye!....but I could find everything

 Nice new room...
.check out the holder for the could I possibly have 500+ in there lol
very tidy and everything in its place just have to make sure I clean up after each lot of scrapping or kitting so it stays tidy!
Ok that's it short and sweet Trevor and Myself are away to Sydney for a long weekend (well that's what it was supposed to be ) but its turned into a week, Mike is flying down on Thursday to join us for the few days and then he leaves on Monday back to the Gold Coast when we do so will be great fun to catch up and spend some time....hey the V8's are on in Sydney this coming weekend as well... so you know we might end up there for a day....would be rude not to
and I suppose we should be finding a bar somewhere to watch the 2nd Bledisloe Cup game ....however the All Blacks better play a hell of a lot better than they did this last weekend.
Until Next Time
Take Care and Happi Scrappin

Technology and Me dont mix well!!!

I wrote up a post not long after SENZ had photos and everything
and have just realised it didn't POST!
Trevor reckons and tells me on quite a regular basis that I should stay away from anything electronic because as soon as I get my hands on it the gremlins come out and everything goes haywire....things move, things get deleted, things get added, just things happen!
A huge thank you to Keri and Trevor for being my Girl and Man Friday and yep in the Botanical Tea Mini Album class  "he was RIGHT" (thought I would put that in for those of you that know what its about)
SENZ was so much fun and both Trevor and Myself thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and I have already planned my classes for next year....but its a secret lets just say they will be heaps of fun! A couple of different options are rattling round in the old grey matter, however before all that happens we have AE in Taupo. I have only ever been to Taupo once and that was for a very  quick visit with a group of friends we had lunch and then drove back to Rotorua so I am really looking forward to seeing what the area has to offer.
The classes I will be teaching are going to be "not for the light hearted" but will be cool when finished, and there might even be a card class.

Anyway here is a few photos from my SENZ experience

getting the tables ready.....
For those that know me well you will know that Presentation to me is everything and there is nothing better than walking into the classroom and seeing a wrapped up box of hidden goodies and little gifts waiting for you

 here is a pic of the goodies that went with the class boxes
the little wooden box was for the Puzzle (Wall Art) class, the Glass Jar was for the Botanical Tea Mini Album class and the little handbag was for the Double Layout class

Ladies very busy in the Wall Art Class


My Tutor Wall
Ok that's it short and sweet but I promise to come back soon and show sum sneakys of the next kit for Class on the 6th Sept.....however just before that we are heading to Sydney for a few days for our Anniversary (31yrs) and Trev's birthday
yep he's old but I still luv him as much as when we were 13.
Until We catch up again
Happi Scrapin'
