I feel like a kid in the Candy Store!! I am about to head off to New Zealand to teach at the Vintage Indulgence Retreat this weekend, then on to Melbourne to teach at Scrappy Hollow and then.........
It was announced this morning that I will be teaching at the Prima Retreat following CHA in January!! So so super excited. I love teaching and this opportunity is so sensational. I can't wait to meet some of the amazing women I have met online in the US and just the opportunity to teach for Prima is sensational! Yep, I am bouncing off the walls with a big grin on my face!!
OK so I had a couple of nostalgic things happen this week as well! I need to use my "monster" suitcase to take to New Zealand, and I knew I had stored stuff in it years and years ago but had no idea what any of it was. When I opened it up it was full of baby clothes from when Ethan was a baby! Some of those clothes had been used for Lachlan and Cameron as well! Amongst it all were quite a lot of size 3's and 4's, so that will be great as Ashton will need size 3's this Summer! Now I don't have to buy much stuff! YAY! I washed all the clothes that were too small and have taken them to goodwill. Kind of sad to send them on, but we don't have room and someone else may need them.
On the other nostalgic note, I was watching video footage of Ashton when he was a baby. So so happy I have recorded some moments like this and really want to do some more. It captures the nature of a child more than just a photograph, it is like stepping back in time! I am thinking I should try and make a habit of at least recording stuff monthly of the kids, it would be so much fun to go back over time and watch them and their antics in years to come.
On the scrapping front I can share a couple of layouts as well. These layouts were to scrap the highs and lows of the past 12 months.
So the above was for the highs and below this layout is about the lows.
I really love the Prima Tea Thyme collection. So so pretty! I have also been working on another canvas, this one is for Kaitlyns room. I will be putting a video tutorial up on the Prima Educators blog later in the month. I had so much fun creating it and I kind of have a hankering to do another one! I think it is rather an addictive process! Makes me feel all arty!! Once again, thanks for stopping by!
